Rated 4.1 out of 5 by 255 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Destination Relaxation Holiday Inn was great get-away from the hustle of life. I took the time to disconnect! Hotel was very nice and reasonable. Wish it was so high per night, but given the location, I understand that. I'd like a week there! July 2, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Beautiful location and great amenities. Lovely hotel with clean, comfortable rooms. Ours overlooked the pool, which is a little small, but is mainly used to cool off. The Tiki bar was popular, but we did not avail ourselves of it. They could use more umbrellas for the beach, but there seemed to be adequate chairs. The beach and pool staff were quite friendly, but the front desk staff was unapproachable and the maid was downright churlish. Big recommendation for the hotel restaurant, the Starfish! It is a bit on the expensive side, but the food is amazing; and Jean Claude is fantastic! July 1, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Comfortable beds and great view of the ocean Overall the stay was great, we will be going back for the third time just as soon as we can! Love looking for seashell in the ocean, can back with a walmart bag full. \ July 1, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great location for a beach vacation Impressed with the overall feel of this hotel - both in its appearance and friendliness of the staff. The location on the beach is spectacular, with lounges and umbrellas already in place by 9-10 am.. The sand and water is clean and inviting. The food in the restaurant is well prepared and tasty - don't miss their special sushi nights - best we've ever had!! Other than the size of the room - which was kind of small, we have no negative comments. Of course when you go to this location you are going for a beach vacation, not to stay in the room! June 30, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by nice location but really unfriendly staff at the front desk i had never so unfriendly and unhelpful staff at the front desk! especially claudia was very unfriendly at the check in...no information, unhelpful and miserable mood... June 29, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 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. June 29, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Paradise at Sanibel 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. June 29, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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! June 28, 2014
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by 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. June 27, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 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 June 27, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Great valve for stay on Sanibel Impressed for Holiday Inn. The grounds were beautiful, impressed with pool and beach area. We will definitely be back to visit. June 26, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by great staff, great location We always stay at this HI in Sanibel. Clean, friendly, beach chairs and umbrellas provided and great for Kids. June 25, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Quaint hotel with excellent location. Holiday Inn Sanibel is really located in a great area. Easy access to beach, pool, tennis, restaurants and shopping. Location is perfect. Easy quick drive/bike riding to several places. pretty good deals on rooms too. June 25, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. June 24, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Lovely and Unique Beach Hotel Highly recommend. Great value for the price, on the beach and cool tiki bar. June 24, 2014
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. June 24, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent for the ocean I love this place!!! Highly recommend the hotel for your Sanibel stay. June 23, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Birthday Relaxation Had a great time relaxing and enjoying the amenities of the hotel but the best part was the location to ride our bikes throughout the entire island. We usuallly prefer cottages or small B June 19, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. June 17, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 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. June 15, 2014

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Great Location !! Great Location to relax, Lounge Chairs available, Umbrellas in short supply, Nice small bars (outside June 6, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Room rated 145 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.. June 6, 2014

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great beach location. The Holiday Inn Sanibel Island is a great place to relax an enjoy the beaches. May 31, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great place to stay with a friendly staff 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. May 25, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Need Vacation 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...... May 14, 2014
