    No hospitality here. Everyone says no to everything. No compensation for the things I paid for that didn't work. A few nice staff at the pool bar. Good location on the beach, but would never stay here again.

    This was our first time in Sanibel, and it won't be the last. The staff was very helpful with suggestions and the property was well-maintained and lovely. We look forward to staying at the West Wind Inn again.

    Nice hotel with a family theme. Beautiful beach and pool area. Food at bar delicious. Shrimp wrap was the bomb!! Room nice except very uncomfortable beds room 129. Also bartender women were very rude and not accomodating.

    Hi, I just wonder if anyone rents a golf cart when staying here and if you would be able to use it around the island.

    The best mode of transportation on Sanibel, other than a car, is by bike. Golf carts are prohibited.

    They tend to be worse in rainy season which is 6/1 to 11/31.
