My family stayed at the West Wind Inn for the first time this past week. 3-24-27-2018. Our three nights were perfect. The location of the property is just steps to the beach. We were able to utilize the free bicycles and travel to the local farm market on Sunday. That was so much fun. Our room had a kitchenette so we were able to purchase some food items and keep them in our refrigerator. The Inn’s swimming pool was relaxing and the Upper Deck restaurant was convenient and very good. We ate lunch there twice. Plenty of local restaurants also within driving distance. The most stellar feature of this Inn, were the front desk ladies. It was delightful to go in daily ~ request our room keys, inquire about directions, reserve bikes, utilize the business center and (sadly) checkout. My family was so impressed with the West Wind Inn we are now planning to make this Springtime Getaway an annual tradition! See you next year! Love from Pittsburgh, PA

We stayed six days in a room with a kitchentte. The staff were helpful and friendly but we had a few problems - unwanted bugs in the room, cable company problems with quality of TV. The location is ideal - the beach is beautiful and the pool area has adequate seating so that you don't have to stake a spot in the morning.

Decided to stay here for the location, views, range of activities on property, the easy beach access, and within a reasonable budget. Really like the kitchenette room, which included a fullsize fridge, microwave, and oven. Now having stayed there, we also know the staff works hard too.

West Wind Inn on Sanibel Island is a beachfront motel with a pool and wonderful on site restaurant. The hotel itself is about 50 years old but everything is clean and working as expected. The atmosphere is very relaxing and staff are helpful. We found the quality and variety of food at their restaurant better than other restaurants in the area and a great value for the money.

We enjoyed our views of the Gulf and the long walks on the beach. Even more, hearing the surf every night was relaxation at its best. The pool is well maintained, accessible and has great views of the Gulf.
