Great location, clean, and quiet. Very few kids. Hotel free excursions were great. Breakfast was good and the sister property restaurant next door was great.

Lovely small inn with easy beach access. We enjoyed the bikes, pool and hot tub. However our check in experience was less than satisfactory. After being told our room was not ready we went to lunch. 5 minutes later we got a text that the room was ready. An hour later we returned and were told the text was a mistake. Our room was not ready. Not a big deal except when we inquired about the complimentary breakfast the next morning we were told we missed it because we didn’t pre-order the day before. No one told us to do so despite several interactions with check in that day. Otherwise a nice place to spend a few days.

Hi Christine! Thanks so much for the glowing review. We definitely want to emulate that large resort feel with our small boutique hotel. The close proximity to The Sanibel Inn allows guests to dine at the restaurants there and mingle between the two properties. Our team works very hard to anticipate the needs of our guests and I am very glad to see that they came throught with flying colors. If your travels return you to our island, I hope that you will allow us to host you once more. Regards, Jason Trimble Reservations Manager The Inns of Sanibel

Excellent experience! Rooms are big and clean, nice kitchenette, big refrigerator, toaster, microwave- old but working very well. Screened balcony was a pleasant surprise - bugs did not bother us at all. Beds are comfortable. Continental breakfast is good, variety of bagels, some fruits, waffles. Staff is very nice and friendly. Small pool, but it was not crowded so was ok for us. Great beach area, with beach chairs and umbrellas. Overall we had a great stay, and I would stay here again (unless they increase prices lol).

I can’t describe just how nice John and the rest of the staff from the breakfast lady to the cleaning staff were. We felt welcome like special friends. The mattresses were super comfortable and the linens were soft and high-end. Song of the Seas is directly on the beach, has a lovely hammock for two, a nice pool area, FREE BIKES, and a great continental breakfast with waffles and fresh fruit. The bikes were well maintained and we enjoyed the perk immensely. Dinner at Dante’s (at Sister hotel next door) was out of this world and very reasonably priced. Get the pepperoni roll appetizer & burger & you’ll be singing their praises too. Great staff, creative food, and quick service. We would definitely stay here again!
