Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TFamTravelers Nice Stay. Good location and value.
Small rooms. Mattresses uncomfortable. Very clean room and property. Nice pillows. Restaurant fairly priced but food quality is average. Overall a good value and would stay again.

We really enjoyed our stay at the Holiday Inn Sanibel Island. Beautiful clean facility. Front desk staff was very helpful. Enjoyed gathering shells on the beach.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by wanderlust54 Great location
The location was excellent, right on the beach. Beach chairs were available on beach. Small pool area but meet needs. Great service at Tiki bar but prices were a little steep. Happy hour prices seemed reasonable but we went outside those hours. This is a motel and we were able to park our car right outside our door which I appreciated. Rooms were clean and had a beach ambiance. No carpets in room to wipe feet so tiled floor was a little sandy even after wiping feet off on front door mat. Dinner at resort was good. We were first customers of the day and service was great. Again, location was great. I wish we could have spent more time here. The only thing that disappointed us was that the sunset on the other end of the island.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Gloria58 Location
We had a water view room on the second floor which while the view was fantastic, there really isn't much of an opportunity to view it from the room. The room had an outside balcony which is how the room was entered. It is a common balcony that everyone uses to access the rooms on the second floor. While you can stand on the balcony, there isn't an opportunity to sit an enjoy the view from this area. The room does have a window looking past the balcony to the water which is a great view but if you leave the blinds open anyone walking on the common balcony has a full view of your room. These rooms also have a view of the pool but the same circumstances apply. The hotels location is great as they have a path leading right down to the beach where lounge chairs are provided for their guests. There are food and drinks available by the pool. The drinks were good but rather pricey. Two rum drinks cost $22.33 which included an 18% gratuity. We felt the price was kind of high but given the convenience it didn't stop us from buying a few. The rooms themselves are just average. They were a basic room. A bit darker during the day than we prefer. The beds were comfortable enough but the room felt a bit dated. The hotel restaurant was good. It was a bit pricey but that's to be expected at a hotel restaurant. Overall Sanibel Island is a great Florida destination and the Holiday Inn offers a great location to experience it. Given the issue with the room location you might just be better off getting a room that does not have the water view and saving yourself some money. You can always use the savings to buy a few more drinks at the poolside bar.

We love the hotel. It's got a great location and reminds me a little bit about what old Florida motels were like. (which is a good thing) The staff is always friendly. We come to the hotel every year and it's our favorite stay, and we stay at a lot of hotels throughout the year. We found out during our stay that the hotel has been sold. I hope it stays a Holiday Inn.

We stayed two nights at the Holiday Inn Sanibel Island. The room was very clean, staff excellent. This hotel is on the ocean with a beach and pool. Loved being able to walk a short distance to the beach and miles of beach combing. The weather was cool when we were there in January, but the pool area looked very inviting. The bathroom in our room was small, but clean. Microwave and refrigerator were nice to have. We definitely would return to HI Sanibel. Thanks for a great couple of days.

What you would expect from Holiday Inn. Clean, comfortable, somewhat expensive, but everything on Sanibel Island is expensive. Restaurant was very good (Starfish Grill). We had breakfast once and dinner twice, we didn't think we could find a better place for dinner.

We stayed at the Holiday Inn Sanibel for two nights. Great resort type hotel on the ocean. The weather was cool, but the pool looked inviting. Rooms were clean with easy access to the beach. Lots of shells and sealife on the beach. We will return. Used rewards club points and received more with the stay. Very happy.
