We have stayed here several times & it is a delight. Clean, friendly, a terrific breakfast basket delivered to your room each day. It's on the gulf side of the island with a beautiful gulf view from your room. Lounge chairs/umbrellas & beach towels provided too. We are so happy to be back at the Seaside Inn.

We wanted to stay one evening during high season and found this place on Kayak. It was really expensive ($425 a night!), but in a great location, right on the beach. We went straight for the beach and found no open chairs or umbrellas. The person at the desk said they are limited to how many chairs and umbrellas they...

Dear sstorb, Thank you for sharing your experience with us. I'm glad you found us, and that you found our location on the Gulf of Mexico to your liking.

Great location on Sanibel. The gorgeous beach is just steps from the rooms, and it's great having use of bikes, paddle boards, and kayaks. Nice to have the little kitchenette. The staff is friendly, helpful and accommodating. Will definitely return!

We had a lovely stay at the Seaside Inn. The cottage was gulf front with an amazing view. It was exceptionally peaceful and quiet overall. The cottage was a bit small for three/four people, but the beach access and view made up for that. Most days we received a basket with delicious orange juice and pastry, milk, cereal, yogurt and...

We've really enjoyed staying at Seaside the past five years with it's great beach and location. We had expected the same experience but were disappointed.
