This was our second time staying at the Seaside Inn and once again were thrilled with our visit. This quaint relaxed Inn sits steps from the ocean, staff are extremely helpful and polite, bikes and kayaks were fun to use free of charge, we will definitely be back.

Tremendous Value!!

We found this hotel on Travelocity and It was one of the best values we've ever gotten on a hotel and we loved it!! They had bikes, SUP and a kayak we could use, at no additional cost, which was a nice surprise. The rooms were very nicely appointed and the staff was terrific. The only thing i missed was that on this part of the island there is no sunset view, it faces SE. We would definitly stay here again and we are thankful for th other reviews that encouraged us to try this jewel of a hotel.

An excellent inn next to the beach

Pros: The location was great, the staff helpful and friendly, the room pleasant, the overall old fashioned Florida inn experience was really a nice change.
Location: Walk on the beach to Sanibel lighthouse, great shells and coral collecting right on the inn's beach, close the Lighthouse restaurant which was super.
My wife and I really enjoyed our stay at Seaside Inn, Sanibel. We could walk out of our room past the heated pool and right onto the beach. This hotel sets up lounge chairs and umbrellas on the beach for their guests automatically every day; other inns do not. They also bring a full basket to the room every day for breakfast which contains yogurt, cheerios, frosted flakes, a small bagel, cream cheese, apples, orange juice, milk, coffee for the machine, and granola bars. It was enough for both breakfast and lunch for the two of us. Also, they have a rack of bicycles for guests use which means you don't have to drive to a bike rental and pay for them. Nice.

Friendly place right on the beach

Pros: They have their own pool and access to the beach.
Cons: It is nothing fancy but we liked it that way.
Location: Close to the main street with restaurants and shops.
The rooms have balconies, breakfast in a basket is included for you to have in your room. Steps away from the beach, bicycles available. Very friendly staff. We loved it.

Wonderful Short Vacation!

I wish it was longer!  The hotel was awesome.  Loved how close it was to the beach, the room was nice.  The view from the balcony was "aaaahhhhhhh".  The free breakfast was a nice touch and I like that they don't wake you up with it (which is what I thought would happen).  Staff was very friendly and helped with restaurant recommendations.  I will definitely be staying there again!

Staff and owners were extremely graceous and helpful...

Pros: Free breakfast, Free Internet, Quiet
Very comfortable place to stay. The pool and beach are close by with free towel service. Chairs and umbrellas were set up on the beach by 8:30 every day and were free for staying guests. Hotel is very quiet and family friendly. A basket breakfast was supplied every morning, bagels, danish, fruit, juice, and coffee. There is no bar on the premises so plan on byob. I have stayed on the island for less but you end up saving on incidentals, so I think it all evens out.

Pretty spot on the gulf. Includes bikes.

Pros: Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet, bikes, on beach, heated pool
Cons: same breakfast daily
Certainly adequate and fairly clean. You don't spend much time in the room when you are on Sanibel. The inn is right on the beach, has a heated outdoor pool and has bikes for free use. The bike path is right across the street. For a bed and shower, the place is fine. It even includes breakfast brought to the room each morning if you like the same food each day.
