Great location, easy to get to everything, pool area nice, ocean just steps away. Restaraunt is overpriced drinks at pool over priced and $15 to rent a bike (could have included it-for what we paid per night) beds are uncomfortable (back killed every morning).

This was our first trip to Sanibel Island and we loved the laid back vibe of the island. We usually do big all-inclusive resorts so this was a big change for us. The West Wind Inn was the perfect, cozy inn. There is a nice pool and bar overlooking the beautiful Gulf of Mexico. Nice sunsets from the beach and...

Room was quaint, poolside was cozy, and the shelling was awesome. Room was very clean. The AC smelled like it needed some maintenance, but keeping the sliding doors open was preferable anyways. It would have been a minimal issue. I would definitely stay there again.

This hotel is right on the beach and was perfect for what we wanted. It is not a big, fancy five star hotel and the rooms are pretty small, but we didn't spend a lot of time in the room. The pool area is very nice and pool bar was great. We loved the location because everything was an easy...

This is our second trip to this resort in 10 years. It used to be a Holiday Inn resort before the hurricane. With everything new and updated, we didn't even recognize the place! My 72 year old mother and 4 year old niece and myself came to celebrate Mom's last time bringing her last grandchild. It couldn't have been more...

4-day vacation w/ my college-graduate son. Our room was great. Front desk helped give us the best room available. Staff is great! Pool bar is wonderful and very handy for quick lunches! Will always stay here if I can afford it!

The location was great, directly on the beach. Friendly staff, but outdated property. Bathroom very small, carpets should be replaced with some sort of hard surface flooring for better cleanliness. The open hours for the cafe on the property should be at least 7 am.

My daughter & I try to do a get-away once a year. This year it was for mothers day. Our time together was made extra special because of the wonderful service & beautifully maintained grounds. Not to mention the fabulous food in your restaurant.. We will definitely be back .
