Rooms & Rates

Families and couples looking for a relaxing white-sand experience can plan a stay at Sanibel Inn, located on Florida's Sanibel Island an hour from Naples and 35 minutes from Fort Myers. Sanibel Island is a popular destination for shelling with over 200 types of seashells; visitors to the area adopt what's known as the "Sanibel Stoop" to find and collect the shells. The island location is ideal for swimming, kayaking, fishing and boating. 

Enjoy views of the Gulf of Mexico from private, screened balconies complete with patio furniture. Some of the larger rooms offer guests the convenience of cooking in full kitchens with refrigerators, microwaves and coffeemakers. There's a daily resort fee for all guests at this property, but it covers access to many amenities, including Wi-Fi throughout, parking, tennis courts, beach chairs and umbrellas at the beach, and use of bicycles, kayaks and paddleboards. 

Take advantage of Sanibel Inn’s membership at The Dunes Golf and Tennis Club with discounted prices on rounds of golf, as well as events and entertainment (think comedy and trivia nights) offered at the club. Dine at the on-site restaurant, Sea Star Cafe, or drive 10 minutes to Periwinkle Place for award-winning restaurant options and shops. Head over to the J.N. "Ding" Darling National Wildlife Refuge to spot some birds, alligators and bobcats.
