The Holiday Inn Sanibel offers the perfect location when visiting the island. The rooms were clean and lovely, the staff was accommodating and helpful, and the beach was absolutely beautiful. We will return in the fall for another weekend getaway!

My daughter, granddaughter, and I stayed at the Holiday in for 3 days last week. The rooms were clean, but very small. We found it quite confining for two adults and one 4 year old. There was no outside chairs at the rooms, so even if the 4 year old took a nap or when she fell asleep at night,...

Thank you for staying with us. Sorry, that our room size did not fit your needs, but very pleased you liked our staff and enjoyed Sanibel Island. New employees should be trained; totally agree with you, and happy hour hours should be consistent, that we can fix. Thank you for bringing that to our attention and for your helpful comments....

Although this is an older style hotel it was quite charming and very comfortable. The view from the pool was super. The furnishings at the pool and beach are abundant and comfortable. The management does need to regulate who uses the pool. I saw folks who were not guests using the pool and beach amenities (they were not discreet) and...
