We stayed at the Sunset for 5 days and honestly, I have nothing negative to say about the place. Great value for the money, clean well appointed rooms, helpful polite staff, and the perfect location. Beautiful pool and grounds, free bicycles for guests to use, and a fantastic beach right outside your door. The complimentary breakfast basket is a nice...

This was our first time staying on Sanibel. Great beach/island location! Front desk and housekeeping staff were extremely nice. The reason for our average review was: 1) did not like the fact that the maintenance man brought the beach chairs in before sunset (i.e. the reason we picked the Sunset Inn was the location); and 2) and most importantly was...

Checked in early and when I told them it was our first wedding anniversary they upgraded our room. Gave us great advise for restaurants. They also got housekeeping to get our room ready asap. I would definitely go back to Sunset Inn.

This was our first trip to Sanibel Island, and I believe it was a success! The rooms were Lord and comfortable. The pool was an awesome addition to the beautiful beach just steps away from your door. We were in a "garden view" room which meant we overlooked the shuffleboard area but could see the pool. Everything about our stay...

For the price, we were disappointed in this "motel". I gave it an "average" rating because of its terrific location right on the beach. We booked this "Inn" for girls weekend to celebrate a birthday. We looked beyond our disappointment in the accommodations and had a great weekend, but we would not return to this property. The staff was rude...

Sunset Beach Inn is located in the nicest part of the Island, in my opinion. The property is well kept, both inside and out. There's no need to rent a bike as the Inn provides them for free, as well as helmets and locks if you want them. The Inn is also right on the beach and they bring a...

We had a wonderful beach vacation! Perfect location literally steps to the beach! Very clean and comfortable accommodations. Would recommend! Nice quiet location which was very important to us. Amenities included use of kayaks and paddle boards if you are into this, plenty of great shelling on a very Long Beach! Sunrises and sunsets easily viewed from room!
