Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Jackie98702 Great place, but bring your own umbrellas
Great location and hotel. The only problem is not enough beach umbrellas. They only have 19 and you need to get to the beach by 9am to even have a chance of getting one.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RJRPMR Clean, comfortable room.
An older Holiday Inn that has been well cared for. Clean rooms and a great restaurant. Largest selling point is private beach access. Only bad thing to say is the price. Unfortunately, the season and location dictate that number.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Happy family vacationers Comfortable bed, great service and a great location!
We had a wonderful stay at the Holiday Inn. It was close to to everything and convenient to get to. It provides easy access to the beach/gulf and has a nice pool area. It was really quiet early on in the evening - would have been nice to be able to have a place to spend time outside later in the evening. For example a patio, or maybe an outdoor bar that stayed open later. It was nice to be able to relax but just a little too quiet too early.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Bryan-MN Great Location
Great location near the beach. Nice pool area and a fun little bar by the pool and hotel, but the bar closes early. Not sure why it is not open later at night. I think it would be busy and popular. Room was a little musty and humid as many hotels near beach locations sometimes are. Nice hotel, but bathrooms and AC's need to be updated.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by kp65 Great place to relax on the beach
We just got back to Nebraska from spending a week at the Sanibel Holiday Inn. This place is WONDERFUL. We arrived before check in time and our room was ready. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The grounds are well taken care of and very clean. No need to bring beachtowels with you because they are provided in your room and at the pool. It was great not having to scramble and find a beach chair they have plenty for the guests. Could use a few more umbrellas but not that big of deal. I would suggest adding a few more activity games such as shuffleboard or bean bag toss for kids, but hey the beach is only a few steps away. Great place for viewing some awesome sunrises and sunsets. We are already looking to book for next spring. Finally a shout out to Bobbi at the front desk and Richard who made sure the lounge chairs were out before the sun rose and was there putting up umbrellas for guests early. If you're looking for a great hotel on Sanibel this is the spot.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Fred1468 It was a good experience but for one thing!
We had a relaxing 2-night stay. The beach access and equipment are outstanding. The in-house restaurant is also outstanding. The rooms are well appointed and well maintained. They are small rooms, no doubt because of the history of the property. But that's nothing to worry about. The one problem we had was that the tile floor had been cleaned with a very strong Clorox-like cleaning agent moments before we checked in. No doubt this sort of cleaning needs to be done to control mold/mildew in the humid climate. But it took 24-hours for the smell to dissipate! During that time we experienced slight throat irritation that was annoying. Some cleaning agent or cleaning practice should be found that is more visitor friendly.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Chazer very pleasant stay.
We have stayed here many times over the past 15-20 years and have loved it every time. The facilities have always been kept up well and the staff have all been friendly and helpful.
