Friendly and well-kept older motel and grounds - conveniently located within walking distance to great restaurants - bike rentals for short trip to beach - good value - would be a good place for family with clean pool and "shell-cleaning" area, as well as barbeque grills and room for kids to run around; beds OK, A/C worked well; not luxury...

We enjoyed one of the A-Frame cottages and it had everything we needed for a great stay with my parents, nothing fancy but very comfortable. Only issue is the traffic and getting in and out. There wasn't a lot of noise from it, just difficult to leave and explore. Shell washing stand was a great bonus. Staff was very welcoming...

Basic, clean accommodation. Not fancy. Small tight bathrooms, no shampoo or conditioner. Air conditioner is mounted on the wall near the floor. Almost impossible to read the controls unless you get down on your knees. Price should be 1/3 of what they charge. The prices for accommodation on Sanibel are insane. Would never return.

The A framed cottage was very nicely done in seashell décor. It had everything we needed for a short vacation. However, the bed was a box spring with a 1 inch pad on top which was not very comfy. But, we did get tons of shells! Fun!!

Reviewed 4 weeks ago

Rented an A frame cottage. Besides being absurdly overpriced, their claim of a 10 minute walk to the beach must assume you are an Olympiad at a full run. If I wanted to drive to a crowded public beach, I could have stayed in Ft Myers at a $300 a night discount and only added 10 minutes to my drive....

This place is down to earth nice. Like a home away from home. The prices are very good and the units are clean and well decorated. A short walk to the beach. A trolley to take you anyplace on the strip so that you can leave your car at "home" (the cottages). A gorgeous view of the bay with places...

Our party of 3 adults enjoyed our A Frame Get Away. Location is great for island exploring. Facilities were clean...staff were very hospitable. Setting is quiet and offers a pool, picnic area, corn hole, and relaxation in the shade. Would recommend to friends and family.

Anchor Inn & Cottages is centrally located in the heart of Sanibel. It's in easy biking distance to many beaches and restaurants. We were able to park our car and get around the island easily with our bikes. Our room was clean and spacious. The staff was accommodating and pleasant. The heated pool was refreshing.

My husband and I recently stayed one night at this charming vintage hotel. Our room, actually a suite, had a full kitchen, living area with flat screen, kingsize bed in the bedroom as well as 2 bathrooms.

We spent 3 days over Christmas in one of three A-framed cottages. The outdoor Christmas decorations added a festive touch. All very clean , neat and compact.
