Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Alex12345 On the beach
Nice quiet location on the beach. The main road in Sanibel seemed busy, but once at the hotel it was quiet and relaxing. Would stay here again.

Our room was right by the pool, very happy and tropical decoration, a short walk to the beach. the landscape is beautiful with benches under the trees shades........we never went to the tiki bar but it seems very nice. the room was very clean and the hotel provides beach towels.....and lounge chairs. we enjoyed our stay and already made a new reservation for next month.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by I Work for Vacay Outstanding Staff with a very nice beach access.
This was my wife's first visit to South Florida. We normally rotate our vacations from the Rockies to the Florida Panhandle. Location was very nice, secluded, and relaxing, The rooms had your typical "Florida flare" and the beach area was beautiful and easily accessible. The Staff was extremely friendly and kind. Anytime I had questions about where to eat or visit the staff always helped with a smile. We had such a wonderful relaxing time, that my wife wants to return next year instead of visiting the grandkids in Denver and Great Falls. The plan is to bring everybody down for a week of "beach-life" at Sanibel.
Only con about our stay was the lack of a "quality" ice making machines on the premises. Hopefully the property will have upgraded and added more machines prior to our return!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Anne Florea I would not recommend this hotel
Dirty outdated rooms. Bathroom was dirty. Didnt clean my room or change the linens the whole time I was there. Staff didnt speak english. The air went out in the conference room that we planned to have my wedding reception in that we worked so hard to make beautiful, they moved us to the common area then still charged us partial for the room that we had to move all of our out of town guests. They told me i would pay for the gratuity but the bill came out at " which I NEVER would have paid. They refused to change it.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by imthemom98 Great Location!
Spent a week relaxing at Sanibel Island and chose this hotel for convenience. Great location, right on the beach. Room looked out over pool area and could see beach from our window. Woke up every day and walked on the beach before beginning the day. Notes: hotel provides beach chairs and umbrellas (some days we had to wait longer to receive the umbrella but you will get one eventually)! Tiki Bar staff was excellent esp, Danny. Very friendly

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Kathy1515 Wonderful hotel on the beach
We loved it. Very relaxing and nice hotel right on the beach. It is also very close to restaurants and shops.
Chairs and umbrellas are included with your stay on the beach. There are also hammocks, ping pong, and bike rentals. This is not a "luxury resort" but it is a very nice well kept hotel and a great value. We have stayed at other places around Florida on the beach and this is by far the nicest and best value since so much is included with your stay.
Not sure if all the rooms have mini fridges and microwaves but ours did which is really nice if you want to save money and bring your own snacks and drinks. We will stay here again.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 Would not stay here - Find better options on the island
Although some of the amenities are great here, the rooms are old and musty and the "hotel" is actually a MOTEL. I have stayed at newer Holiday Inn Expresses that are a million times better than this in terms of lobby/room quality.
Was it relaxing? Yes. But if you are looking for something a little more classy to really make you feel comfortable, this isn't it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Robin76 Beautiful grounds - Beds not very comfortable
The grounds are beautiful and well maintained. It's a great location. We had visited the same week in 2013 and the AC worked better this time - we were able to get the room cool enough for us to be comfortable. The mattresses were not very soft - even my 9 year old said her back was sore in the mornings.
The restaurant is a little pricey. Yes kids eat free w/ adult purchase, but $25 for breakfast for a family of 3 is a little high. I didn't realize until I saw the bill that the coffee we were offered when we sat down would be $2.50 each. Also, they automatically added the 18% gratuity. I know it's optional to pay, but I didn't bother changing it. Breakfast service was a little slow - a year ago there was a buffet and we could eat immediately. We missed that and would love to see it come back.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by phil6 nice visit will stay again
great relaxing place, very clean, nice pool area , wish had an area for evenings to sit and play cards or games. Pool area had nice areas but closed at dark. Beach was supplied nicely with chairs and umbrellas Maintenance man Richard was very personable and Dave in office very nice and helpful. Need some business center that is more then "only able to print boarding passes". Needed to print papers and had to go to find a library. this was not good, we are a computer society. Beds extremely comfortable. bathrooms very small, rod falling off wall. Our friends had a nice room with walk in shower and larger refrig.

The room we stayed in seriously needed to be updated... the furniture looked like it came from a thrift store. nothing matched.. The bed was comfy, pillows and bedding nice. Appearance of room not up to holiday inn standard at all... Would not stay there again . we would find somewhere else to stay on Sanibel That price... disappointing..

Location, location, location. This hotel was fantastic and super convenient to the beach. It is a bit older but kept very clean and neat. The staff is super friendly and very accommodating plus easy parking. The hammock swing was so relaxing at sunset. I will definitely plan to stay here again.

The stay at the Holiday Inn on Sanible Island was just perfect. The staff was friendly and courteous and very responsive to all our needs.
The room we had overlooked the pool area out to the Gulf which was just amazing.
The beach was clean and the sand was as white as driven snow, just beautiful.
The food at the pool and the restaurant was excellent and we loved our frozen pina-colita's on the beach.
Sunrise on the beach was incredible as was the sunset out on the end of the Island out by the Mucky-Duck.
We will be back and have recommended this place to others already......

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Trisha14 Wonderful Experience at Sanibel Holiday Inn
We stayed at Sanibel Holiday Inn for our 3 night mini-vacation and were VERY pleased. The staff were so polite, positive and very customer service oriented. Nice room, clean and comfy. Towels everyday smelled so fresh and clean.
This hotel is a smaller, older Holiday Inn that has a quaint feeling which we really enjoyed. Right ON the beach...with a nice pool, three hammocks in the palm trees, ping pong table, Shelling cleaning station, Tiki bar near the pool and beach, free beach umbrellas and chairs and a very pretty tropical landscape.
The hotel is easy to get to arriving on the island and easy access to EVERYTHING...restaurants, museums, nature preserve, shopping!
We agreed we would definitely stay here again having saved money and having had a great experience.

This is our 13th time @ the Holiday Inn Sanibel over the past 7 years. Unfortunately being a platinum member and using points gains you very little recognition at this property. Again this trip not recognized for being platinum.
On the positive side, Jesus, Richard, and the new restaurant bar tender / manager from Ohio are fantastic people.
We love Sanibel and this property is a great location. We will be back.

Our second time here. Access to beach wonderful and tons of shells!! Free lounge chairs and umbrellas were an added bonus, just wish there were more available umbrellas. Pool area very nice, with covered patio area and comfortable lounge chairs. Easy to rent bikes to explore island. Very relaxing. Staff very friendly and helpful. Rooms very clean. Breakfast delicious! Will definitely be back!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by CEH5018 Overall great vacation spot
We enjoyed this location and our stay greatly. Overall our room was excellent and clean. Service was great and the front desk staff was very helpful. We did try the breakfast at the hotel restaurant and is was not the best, however there are plenty of other places to eat that are much better. The hotel provided complimentary coffee in the lobby, but my wife was disappointed there was not tea available. Nice experience overall.

I'd recommend this hotel to anyone who has a few bucks to spend - it's a little pricey, but everything is on the island. With that said, staff was friendly and extremely helpful - especially the staff who takes care of the beach area - always quick to get you a chair or umbrella always a hello and a smile...overall great experience.
