For the price, this hotel falls incredibly short. We reserved a 2 bedroom condo for one weekend. The accomodations were clean, but that's about all they had going for them. Large pieces of furniture were squeezed into the condo and made it very tight. The one bathroom is even tighter. For the amount of people this condo is expected to...

The room was a decent size. The beds were comfortable. The room was very quiet, you couldn't hear anyone else unless you were on the screened in porch. I didn't like the sink or stove in the kitchen- sink handle was kinda broken and hard to turn off, the stove was tiny and outdated. Fridge was clean and worked well....

I think this was our 6th stay at Sunset Beach. It was a Best Western the first 2 times we stayed. On the plus side- beautiful grounds, large swimming pool that is not crowded, free bike use, lounge chairs and umbrellas placed on the beach by staff, most staff in all areas are very friendly and helpful and lastly, it's...

We booked our room through Expedia, so although we should have known, the basement room was a bit of a letdown. The room itself was large and spotless, but the bottom floor is semi below ground and very dark. On a brighter note, the hotel is directly on the beach and they provide umbrellas and lounges - although if you...

We only spent a night here, and opted for one of the "Sanibel" rooms, which meant it was a basement room. They were the cheapest. No big deal. The room was actually nice, had some minor wear and tear issues, but overall good. The pool area looked nice, and they bring chaise lounges out to the beach for visitor use....

Had high hopes for this hotel, considering the high rating. But was quite disapointed, it was our Honeymoon but didn't even get a congratulations. Breakfast was included, but was just a few things in the lobby and nowhere to eat it. Not even fresh juice or bread. Also it included free high speed wifi, well it was high speed when...

A nice, relaxing vacation spot. Off-season so all the amenities, i.e., bikes, kayaks, ect., were included in our price. Busy main pool, but smaller pool by our unit was fantastic and not so noisy/splashy. Make sure you grab a bike and go explore the island and parks. A drive to Captiva is worth the time.

I reserved a garden view guestroom in January for this week - the description was a room overlooking the tropical palms and tennis courts. I was disappointed to find that it overlooked a parking lot and main road. I was told that the only other room available would be directly above - same view. This room should NEVER been listed...
