Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DAG40 Quiet, relaxing, comfortable
First impressions driving into the hotel car park were very positive. Room was a good size with a comfortable bed and selection of pillows. Bathroom is small but functional. Wash hand basin is in the bedroom area which I am not keen on. Pool area was good with a tiki bar. Loungers on the beach are free for residents, the first time I have stayed at a beach hotel and not had to pay extra for a lounger on the beach. Very relaxing and quiet hotel.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by OtterXP Not even close to a quiet room
We traveled to the HI Sanibel to celebrate my wife's 40th birthday and my mother-in-law's 70th birthday. We have stayed at this property before and stayed again because of the awesome beach access. We reserved this room many months ago, requesting a quiet room away from stairs/vending/ice. We were given instead, a room next to stairs, next to the lobby, right across the courtyard from the bar and next to the cleaning closet. Every morning around 7:00 a.m., we were woken up by multiple carts clattering across the bricks, stopping to chat with other cleaning staff right outside our door, for a quite a long time. Repeat this entire experience for my 70+ year old parents that were given the room ABOVE us (and got to take the stairs every day, because they didn't want to trade rooms with us). The toilet let out a high pitch squeal every time it was flushed and while it was refilling. It also did this for the rooms around us....we could hear squealing when other rooms flushed their toilets. The beachfront and Frannie at the bar were what saved this stay from being a real letdown.

I was very impressed by the cleanliness of the room.
The staff was very nice and always willing to answer any questions or get what we needed with a smile.
The grounds were well landscaped. A very quiet place to relax and enjoy.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 2NDLOOKPhotography Excellent location
We have stayed at the Sanibel Holiday Inn on two separate occasions and both were very good. The location on the island is centrally based and allows easy travel. Located right on the beach, it is just a quick walk through the manicured garden past the outdoor pool and lounge to all the shells one cares to see! We did not eat at the in-house restaurant during this year's stay. Several other guests commented that food was good. I highly recommend this property for a relaxing vacation stay.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by lhjack Great place for shellers
We find this place to be great for a few days of shelling and just relaxing. Beach access is good, as well as access to shopping and restaurants in Sanibel.

We have stayed at this facility several times over the past 20 years, it has become our go to place in Sanibel. The rooms are clean and comfortable, the staff is friendly and the proximity to the beach could not be better.
I highly recommend this Inn to anyone looking for a relaxing get-a-way.

Overall very awesome place to stay right on the beach. Beds could have been softer, but we were so excited to get up early we didn't sleep much anyway.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by rnl17 Comfortable bed and great location
Was very pleased overall with this hotel. Would definitely recommend for the price and location. The hotel seems a little dated, but the staff was very nice. The room was adequate but nothing special. The a/c worked well, you couldn't hear any outside noise, the bed and pillows were very comfortable, and the blinds do a good job of darkening the room - so getting a good night's sleep was very easy.
