About
Description
Voted "Best Inn on the Island," the Island Inn, with its combination of old Florida cottages & modern lodges, sits on 10 beautiful Gulf front acres, offering 550 feet of beach with some of the best More shelling in the area. Serving guests since 1895, the Island Inn is the oldest, and newest, hotel on Sanibel. In 2018, the Inn opened the doors to the first new hotel building on Sanibel in nearly 40 years, Matthews Lodge, which offers 12 Gulf View Luxury Suite accommodations. Our mix of 49 accommodations are made up of five different hotel room types & cottages for couples, families, groups. All rooms have refrigerator, microwave & coffee making facilities & many have full kitchens. Guests of the Inn experience crisp, white linens on comfortable beds, Wi-Fi, flat screen TV's, DVD/CD players, iPhone docking stations & large screened porches with views of the Gulf. This serene setting is where the sound of the waves rolling onto the Sanibel shores can be heard 24hrs a day, 7 days a week! Less
