Mothers Day Getaway! Absolutely the best Mother's Day I've had in some years. My 39 year old son and 12 year old granddaughter treated me to a most relaxing weekend. It was our first time sleeping over on Sanibel Island and what a great time we had swimming, riding bikes and site seeing. The food was delicious at west wind...

Nice location, amenities were great, showed a lot of thought to make guests comfortable. Rooms are small but didn't spend much time in the room. Restaurant was a bit pricey, not a lot of choices for breakfast. Enjoyable! Great time.

The West Wind Inn was amazing! It is in the perfect location right on the beach. The room was clean and nice. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. We had a much needed relaxing stay. We plan on returning in the future!

We needed a room near a restaurant we had reservations for and this was quite nice, beautiful location in the beach although we needed our own beach chairs as the ones there were all reserved. We had lunch at the pool and it was great!

Nice but old hotel at the beach. Clean and helpfull personal. Only thing which could be handled better was that we weren't told beforehand that we had to reservate the places at the beach and therefore could not use them.

West Wind Inn needs to inform customers of the temporary hold they put on your bank account for room service, etc. The amount held was around $100 more than what we expected to be charged which temporarily put us in an inconvenient bind.

The trip to Sanibel was great. The West Wind was good. I would recommend it. The prices have gone up but the level of service has not. That was a little disappointing after having been there in year's past. In addition, we left on a Wednesday but were told there as no option for a late check out. We felt...

We've visited Sanibel several times but never stayed on the island. We found the West Wind Inn on line and it lived up to all of the great reviews. Perfect location and accommodations. Already planning our next visit.

Loved my room and screened in sun porch. Even though I chose privacy and not to have my room cleaned each day of my visit, the staff still left me clean towels, coffee, soaps,etc in a bag waiting for me outside of my room.. Everyone was extremely friendly. Love love love the newly remodeled bathrooms with the large vanity. Great...
