My wife and I have stayed here several times. In recent years we have not had this capability since the hotel had full on the dates we wanted to book a room. The hotel is small and very well maintained, it is family owned, where customers return year after year. The hotel has a very large and nice pool and...

Travis has everything you need beach chairs coolers, beach toys. there are washer/dryer available. Pool was nice and heated. Would go back Very reasonable

I wanted my adult son to experience the kind of Florida vacation that I enjoyed as a young man, so I selected Dolphin Inn. No disappointments here!. Not fancy, but comfortable room with kitchenette, decent beds, Beach is a half-block away. The inn provides lawn chairs and ice chests you can take to the beach. Their pool is very nice....

I've struggled with how to rate Dolphin Inn, so I decided to give it average and let you decide. I read many reviews and looked at photos, so I felt like I had a realistic expectation. No frills, good location, laundry facilities, wifi, kitchen etc. We had bookend stays here for a trip to Key West on the ferry and...

First of all, if you're looking for a high class place, with chocolates on the pillows and turn down service....keep looking! If you're looking for a great place, with dynamite location and the friendliest people ever, you have found it! It was like staying with family. Travis is the owner and he is just as down to earth and personable...

If you like motels that have beautiful , well maintained grounds, a big beautiful pool and the friendliest hosts you'll ever encounter then the Dolphin Inn is your spot.

We had to evacuate due to Hurricane Matthew and we found a gem on Ft Myers Beach. Not the big new fancy hotels, but this was a taste of old Florida with spacious and clean rooms. Private beach access, they have a nice pool. Kayaks beach chairs and umbrellas are there for your use as well

This is our second stay as a family. The rates are very reasonable in October as it is off-season. The family who runs this hotel are very kind and helpful. Check-in is a breeze. We stayed in room 7. It has one bedroom with one bath, also two other beds on enclosed porch off the living room. The hotel is...

Lovely little motel. The beach is across the road and the lagoon with boat moorings is at the back of the property. The view out of our room to the lagoon was stunning. A bonus to have a little pool on the front as well. The rooms are dated and could do with an update but perfectly clean and comfortable....
