I stayed at Seaside Inn October 7 to 12, 2018. The bed and pillows were comfortable. The beach access was convenient. The breakfast basket delivered daily was awesome. I used the laundry and shell cleaning station. The staff were friendly and helpful. The room was clean and with a kitchenette was convenient.

We flew down for a destination wedding wknd. We were looking for value, quiet, small property and we struck gold with Seaside Inn! Our room had quirky charm and was very comfy and thoughtfully appointed. This property is focused on hospitality. Clearly thoughtful management and staff have an eye for making all guests feel at home. Included details are amazing and high quality. Other wedding guests paid much more for much less at other resorts. This is a GEM!!

We love this place! We have stayed here many times. Customer service couldn’t be better. Directly on the water, chairs and umbrellas always available. Short drive to dining and shopping. Cute rooms, always clean. Definitely recommended!

We have been coming to Sanibel for many years for both vacations and long weekend and we have stayed at the Seaside Inn a number times. We were there last weekend and while the red tide was still present, it didn't impact our enjoyment of the property or doing other things on the island. The red tide was only noticeable on one of the days we were there and only if you got out deeper in the water. The beach was fine - we found more whole sand dollars in one day than we had in many years combined. The rooms are very comfortable and the staff, as usual, was friendly and professional and went out of their way to make our stay exceptional. Throughout the island, you could walk into restaurants with no wait. Most of the stores were open, but never crowded. If you want a chance to just get away without the crowds, now seems to be a great time. Everyone acts appreciative of your business especially when so many are staying away because of environmental concerns. For me and my family (there were nine of us in total), we very much enjoyed our time and my wife and I are going back again in a week and half.

Room Tip: Most rooms seem to have a good view of the Gulf. The ones with a full Gulf view are my favorite.

Dear Earl,

Thank you for staying with us and for taking the time to share such a nice review of your stay.

We're all so glad that our waters and beaches are clear, and the Red Tide's exit has been helped along by recent storms in the Gulf and dropping temperatures. While it seems you saw the very end of it during your stay, I'm glad you were able to enjoy the majority of your time on the beach and in the water. Indeed, the seashells have been amazing an plentiful lately - also stirred up and brought to our beaches in huge numbers after Hurricane Michael just this week

I'm glad to see that you enjoyed so many other aspects of the resort and appreciate the service of our staff.

Thank you for your loyalty over the years, it means the world to us. We look forward to your return!

Sincerely,

Bill Wellman
General Manager

It's right off the beach. The rooms and grounds are very clean and the staff are the best we've come across.They're very nice people and treat you great.The young man that took the paddle boards down to the water for us gets special praise.so does Day manager Steve.
The place is dated but staff do a great job with what they have. We did take a nice walk down the beach to the sister place to take advantage of the tiki bar and food.
The Gulf water isn't as clear as when we were there 2 years ago. But it didn't smell and didn't see dead fish.So we went in the pool more and its's water is crystal clear and it's temp. was perfect.
We went to Captiva one day and saw why they call it red tide. Wasn't good there.

Dear Tour,

Thank you for being our guest and for taking the time to share such a complimentary review of your stay.

It's great to see that you found the resort exceeding your expectation and our staff providing such great service. I will be sure to pass your thanks along to them.

I'm also glad you found the red tide situation better than you expected; you'll be happy to know that the beaches are looking beautiful right now as temperatures cool and the winds help the situation move even further offshore. We're optimistic that these conditions will continue to improve and we'll very soon see the pure blue seas that we all enjoy.

We look forward to seeing you again soon when your travels bring you back our way.

Sincerely,

Bill Wellman
General Manager
