Short walk to the beach. Clean room. Room was pretty small and the bathroom was even smaller. Smoking area was close enough to the room that we could smell cigarette smoke and of course the noise from those out there smoking was concerning. Overall it was okay for a single night. Would be hard to pay $200/night if staying longer....

The rooms are pretty spacious. We had a double, that had a full size fridge with stovetop and microwave. It included all the dishes you would need and a dishwasher to wash them.

Very nice clean room - great location in Sanibel island. We had fun shelling and exploring the Isla d. Captiva island is a must do as well very pretty - lots of shell shops and the lighthouse is worth a visit as is the shell museum

We have stayed a number of times over the past 30 years and have never been disappointed. The room has always been well maintained, the restaurant is excellent and the sunsets are gorgeous. Although not inexpensive, the West Wind Inn is a very good value.

Nice location with great pool and access to beach. However, rooms need a bit updating. Internet service keep dropping signal and pool bar needs frendlier staff and better drinks and food. Food was greasy and probably from a frozen bag.

Great place. Away from crowds, convenient dining (restaurant and pool area), very clean comfortable rooms, and good service. Proximity to excellent shelling, bike paths and Ding Darling Reserve is great.

Love Sanibel Island. It is extremely bike friendly. Resort was very nice with large heated pool and full kitchen. Plenty of towels and pool chairs. Well maintained resort; felt at home here. Convenient pool bar and reasonable bar prices. Only used onsite restaurant for 1 occasion and it was very good.

My husband and I stayed here for our honeymoon. We enjoyed the beach front room, the pool, and the onsite restaurant as well as the pool bar. It was close to the lighthouse and other fishing, shopping, and restaurants. We really enjoyed our time and can't wait to go again.
