After 9 years of staying at this excellent property, finally our first negative experience with the Pool Bar Bartender. Tried to order our FIRST beverage of the season and it was not a positive experience! We wound up going to Cip's and had a great lunch with a MUCH Friendlier experience!!! New Food and beverage service needs to be pre-screened by the GM to ensure guests receive the same great hospitality as the hotel team extends!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by rmkoz Large rooms and excellent value
Tried to find rooms available in Naples, but a large lacrosse tournament was there. Drove up to Sanibel and was pleasantly suprised with the room being large and very, very comfortable. Stayed 2 nights and explored Sanibel and Captiva. Would highly recommend this for a nice relaxing stay.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by EAG1 Great location!
The hotel was a little hard to find as we were first timers on Sanibel. Overall it was a GREAT location. The beach is right behind the hotel. The room was on the small side but OK. The only real problem ( and it shouldn't stop you from staying there# was the sheets on the bed were old and had "pills" from overwashing. The staff is great! The new resturant was OK, BUT....a little overpriced and it felt like they were trying to hard with the food. All the decorations were in the center area and the rest was bare. #still new, so hopefuly will get better)Again the staff was very nice.

Our family: myself, my husband and our 11 year old daughter stayed at the Holiday Inn Sanibel a few weeks ago. This was our first trip to Sanibel Island. We found this hotel to be perfect for us: clean comfortable rooms, a path to the beautiful beach, and a pool! The setting was quiet and relaxing and the staff was very friendly and helpful. Would definitely stay again and recommend this hotel to a friend.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Marimar Great location and warm welcome
We enjoyed our short stay at the Sanibel Holiday Inn. We liked the beach and the pool in particular. the only little glitch was the NO-SEE-UMS. I got bitten on the lower part of both legs profusely and had very itchy and sore spots for 3 days.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by katydid14 great beach resort
This is a great place to visit in the off season in Florida. The rooms were tropical, clean and comfortable. The only thing that could be better was that they have no continental breakfast but have an expensive resteraunt on premises so at least they could give discount to guests. Very nice beach location.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by John54904 Great service
People were very friendly and helpful. How they keep all that sand out of the rooms after you drage it in is a mystery. Room was bright and new looking. Bathroom was very small and cramped but for the price it was a great deal. The restraint was closed down while we were there for remodeling.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Shannon23 no restaurant and no pool bar
The restaurant and pool bar were both closed for remodeling during our stay. Not only that but we had to lisen to the construction of the remodel. Someone should have contacted us so we could have made other reservations elsewhere. We have stayed here before and knew there was a restaurant and pool bar. It is nice not having to leave the hotel so you can relax. We were disappointed we had to leave for lunch and dinner.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by karmcclin STRESSFREE RELAXING TIME
WE PICKED THIS HOTEL BECAUSE IT WAS ON THE OTHER COAST AND AWAY FROM THE CRAZY RAT RACE. THE ROOM WAS COMFORTABLE AND QUIET, JUST A FEW FEET FROM THE BEACH. THE STAFF WAS VERY HELPFUL WHETHER IT WAS FOR DIRECTIONS TO A PLACE TO GO OR IF WE NEEDED A HAND OPENING A BOTTLE OF WINE WHEN WE FORGOT THE CORKSCREW. THE HOTEL WAS IN A GREAT LOCATION FOR US ALSO, WE NEVER HAD TO LEAVE THE ISLAND ONCE. WITH THE MANY DIVERSE KINDS OF RESTAURANTS AND THE DIFFERENT TYPES OF WAYS TO SEE THE WILD LIFE. I'M SURE WE'LL BE BACK IF ONLY JUST TO SIT ON THE BEACH OR TO GO SHELLING TO OUR HEARTS CONTENT THIS IS GOING TO BE ONE OF OUR FAVORITES.

We really enjoyed our stay at the Sanibel Holiday Inn. Spent a lot of time looking at different properties but in the end stayed with a brand we know. Loved the Tiki bar, too bad it wasn't open later. Had some great meals at the Carousel restaurant, somewhat unusual for an on property restaurant. We'd stay there again at the first opportunity.

Our stay was just want we wanted a quiet stress free weekend away on the beach. Our room was clean and comfortable and the hotel was located right near everything on the island we wanted to see. The staff where even able to help us open a bottle of wine we had brought that had a cork.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 Oldie but goodie...
Although this Holiday Inn has been around for awhile, we were quite surprised at how well it was maintained. Very clean. Wonderful Staff. It's on the beach and they provide lounge chairs. It was really nice to have a place to lay back and relax and the sun rose.. and set. We thought that it was a little overpriced, especially off season. However, we will definitely be back for another visit.

I am a business traveler but by stays at this location have been for vacation only. My wife and I have stayed at this property three times so far and our experiences have been wonderful. The property is very well maintained, the staff very friendly and helpful and a great beach!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Rael Wedding Experience
We were at Sanibel for a wedding. We had a lovely time, the hotel, beach and pool area were beautiful. Palm trees all around us with hammocks between the trees for relaxing.
We did wish that the outside bar stayed opened longer (it closed at 6pm), but that is being taken over by new owners so that may happen.
If you have a chance rent some bikes and use the trails, easy to follow and beautiful to ride. Highly recommend Sanibel Island, looking forward to returning.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Swig Poor experience
As a Priority Club Platinum member, I have stayed all over the US and abroad, I was not recognized as a member, and the Hotel staff was very distant, not your typical service that I am used to. I don't expect extra treatment, just acknowledge the repeat consumer.
Hotel is dated, shower pressure is very poor. Staff just doesn't seam to care if your there or not. I witnessed a wedding party being processed, rudely.
