Brought the boat over from the east coast and fished several days in Pine Island. What a wonderful getaway. The rooms were clean and comfortable with excellent views. The boat ramp was located a short drive away and tying the boat at the docks was simple. We will certainly be coming back for another stay!

The food and general atmosphere were pleasant enough, however the waiter attending to us gave the impression that we were keeping him from something more important. We dined at 8 pm and the restaurant stops serving at 9 so possibly if you ate early you may get better service. Would not recommend this restaurant as it was overpriced and a... More

We arrived for a one night stay, warm welcome from reception. Quickly oriented to the lodge, and we were off to our room (Sanibel). We chose to stay in the main lodge so our room was right above the restaurant, very convenient. The lodge has a marina and pool, very nice and be sure go out to the docks for... More

Pleasant service. Food was fair. Signature soup crap/corn chowder was disappointingly served only warm. Had the quesadilla and fish tacos. We found the food to be under seasoned. Lemon water tasted funky.

Thank you for your review, our signature corn chowder should have been served hot, if it was not we apologize. We have let our General Manager know of the issues you had while dining. Hopefully you will come out and visit us again. More

It's a bit out of the way and a bit rustic and old but it is a great place to go. We stayed here several nights and could not have been more pleased. Our room overlooked the bay with crisp calm beautiful mornings and bright gorgeous sunsets. Our room was not large but had a comfortable queen bed, a place... More

The restaurant is helpful and careful with food allergies, has an excellent selection for lunch, great friendly service, nice white porch and good views. Bring your out of town guests here! Allow extra time to watch the pelicans diving for fish. A delightful taste of old Florida.

This is an old property, dating back to the 20's, so the main house is creaky and stairs are steep (upper floors not handicapped accessible) but it's clean. The downside is the bar/restaurant is centrally located so all bedrooms on that floor are subjected to the noise level of the bar. Some nights quiet, others loud. Continental breakfast is offered...

We spent two nights at Tarpon Lodge and wish we could have stayed longer! We stayed in the Island House. Our room was exceptionally clean, comfortable and quiet. The bathroom was small but very clean. The bed was very comfortable. There was a supplemental air conditioner in the room which we did not need to use. Everyone who worked at... More

This is a stunning venue with a superb menu providing excellent service and customer service. We were here the day after Hurricane Matthew struck in the East, so it was extremely windy and changeable. The facilities certainly catered for all weather conditions without compromising on the embiance.
