First, the dolphin inn us not a beach resort or high class hotel. It is a simple, comfortable, clean inn that is located in a more quiet area of Estero Island. There is a large outdoor pool (with a deep end, 8 feet, which is rare!!) A ton of lounge chairs surrounded by foliage (palms, etc). The establishmegavent has only...

With its own dock on one side and 50 yards to a beautiful beach on the other this was a great place to stay. Plus a biggish heated pool with plenty of seating and sun beds and, eating places and supermarkets nearby. We stayed four nights in a poolside ground floor room which was really a studio apartment with two...

We spent from Dec.26/ to Jan.3 2012 at the Dolphin Inn . The room 6 facing the pool was cleaned and well stocked. The pool was clean also. Terra Nostra was a great restaurant nearby as was Charley,s Boat house and Pincher,s crab shack and a little gem for breakfast was Heavenly Biscuit. Have been to Flordia 30-35 times but...

If you enjoy a relaxing, quite, getaway, the Dolphin Inn is your best choice on Ft Myers Beach. Although small, it offers all the comforts of home. This was our second stay and truly enjoyed the room on the bay.......

Late review but have to leave one. The owner Travis is an outstanding person. He's hands on and very helpful. Very knowledgeable on the area. Its small location but cozy. Our room was in front of the pool. This location was clean inside and out. The rooms have dvd players and they have a pretty large collection of movies to...

Didn't stay here - although it looked lovely. We rented bikes from here & just couldn't believe the delightfully trusting attitude - so refreshing! We took the bikes but they didn't want ID or deposit. In fact, we couldn't even remember our FM address so we just said '1st house behind Charley's Boathouse'. Bikes were great & the lovely attutide...

We were pleasantly surprised when we arrived at this Inn. Arrangements were made at the last minute after a change in our plans. The owner could not have been more kind. The Inn is clean and we could not have found better service. We want to thank them for a wonderful stay. KMKWAS

We went for 4 nights. You have beach access just passing the street. The attention of the Owner Travis was excellent. Is better if you have a poll side room. Our room was roomy and clean. For that price, the Dolphin inn is an excellent choice.

We were looking for a hotel where we could keep our jet ski. This hotel has a dock right out back where you can dock your jet ski or boat for your entire stay. The beach is right across the street from the hotel and there is a private walkway. We drove our jet ski over to the beach side...

My husband & I just returned from our stay at the Dolphin Inn. This was the third year that we have gone there & it was "paradise". The owners, Travis & Jennifer, and all of the staff are very kind.
