Great location at a decent price. Clean, quiet. Rooms are like little attached cottages with private outdoor areas. It's an older place and not glamorous, but we loved it. It's also next to a great breakfast place. Nice room options. We had a king bed with a twin as well that was great for us and our son.

I really enjoyed staying at the Parrot's Nest. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The room was perfect! It was very clean and inviting. I loved the decor of the room and the setting outside it was beautiful! The hotel is walking distance to the best ice cream and breakfast and about 2 blocks to lighthouse park beach. I...

Like nearly everyone we met in Sanibel, the staff were friendly and helpful. When my wife remarked that ours was a birthday trip, management fetched a free bottle of sparkling wine for our room. Our efficiency was roomy, with a large bed and adequate, stocked kitchenette (but, shower only -- no tub). The location is excellent for walking to breakfast,...

This place is exactly what I was looking for, a laid back beach kind of life. I arrived at Parrots next and there wasn’t anyone around to check me in. They informed me on my reservation confirmation that that may occur. When I saw an envelope with my name on it, I knew this would be my kind of place....

This is advertised as the quiet side of the island and it is! But it is a gem! The room was extra large and beautifully furnished. The room was very clean with everything needed. There is no daily maid service but that was fine! Amble towels are available in laundry room. There was a cute private back patio to enjoy...

Our stay here was perfect for us: quiet, comfortable, friendly and very close to the best shelling beach and ice cream shop. We did travel around the island and also to Captiva to check out the beaches, etc., but I never found better, more abundant shells than right around the corner at the Gulf end of Buttonwood Rd. on the...

For our 25th wedding anniversary, we wanted a quiet, clean place near the beach and that's exactly what we got! They have thought of everything... beach towels, chairs, umbrellas, sun block, even the little cart with attached cooler to carry everything in. Laundry facilities provided, detergent, even quarters for the machines! They do not do daily housekeeping, which was fine...

My husband and I recently celebrated our 30th wedding anniversary in October. We renewed our vows in December in order for our son and daughter in-law to be with us for the holidays. So we delayed our "2nd honeymoon" until January, 2015 when we went to The Parrot Nest. I LOVE THIS PLACE!!! Charming, friendly, quiet, close to beach and...

An interesting choice in Sanibel. It is not on the beach and does not have a pool. No daily room service, make up your own bed and get your own fresh towels. For all that, it is a well run place out of the way. Quiet, large and comfortable rooms, well maintaned, if a little tired. This end of the...

Quiet, quirky, comfy, relaxing, delightful, far enough away from the island traffic, near the lighthouse on the east end. 6 spacious units with kitchenette, patio, short walk to beach. Friendly owners. We just melt into island mode as soon as we get here. It's certainly not the Hilton, but fits our style.
