Shalimar the turtle best atraction. Beautiful sunsets. Clean beaches.
The acess to kyakes and boards were to far from beach.should have better way to be tranported.
We were right on the beach. The resort had chairs, grills, water toys etc. available for guests. We didn't know how we would like not having our efficiency cleaned daily but it worked out very well and gave us more privacy. They have a very good system for trading in towels and supplies for fresh ones. The location could not be better. The gulf is steps from our room. The rooms and kitchens are very well appointed with everything needed. I would highly recommend Shalimar to both couples and families.
There was nothing that I did not like.
I highly recommend this place to anyone who wants to spend a few days relaxing by the beach. If you are traveling with kids, they will love it too.
Matress was a bit old on one off the beds, and since they have wooden floors on second floor, the noise is a bit hard if your neighbors walk around during the night.
The location was great, pool area was clean.
We stayed in the motel due to a last minute booking. The room was quaint but the bathtub caulking was moldy. The room was not very noise proof either.
close to beach
motel room was old and smelled like mildew. bathroom old with cracked tiles. parking was very cramped. room very warm even with air on high. Left right after checking in and lost our deposit, went to Sanibel Marriot, got a beautiful room at half the price.
Loved location, bed really comfortable , great time. I loved the fact that we could rent bikes on site , perfect vacations
What was there not to like ?
Amazing site, close to the beach. Near the pool.
We thought we reserved a cabin..... but when we got there they had us stay in the "hotel." One of our party smokes and you cant smoke in the hotel. We were disappointed.... definitely not a cabin.
Location is beautiful and perfect, it couldn't be better! Sweet looking buildings, very nice! Staff, parking and cleanliness ...
The facilities are very old, especially the bathroom is very poor, the best times are definitely over, really not up to date, ugly!
Clean room! Spacious for a motel room. Clean pool. Well kept grounds. View from screened balcony was wonderful.
Only complaint is that the pipes wined loudly during a shower.
Perfectly located, nothing to complain about.
The staff was wonderful. and great view on the beach
Everything was wonderful. My husband and I will be making Sanibel and Shalimar our anniversary tradition from now on.
The room was very clean. I liked that bikes, beach chairs and kayaks were available.
I didn't dislike anything.
beds too soft
Great laid back atmosphere. Real close to the beach
The motel is a little loud at time will stay in a cottage next time. Wish they had some kind if restaurant
Location was beautiful Rooms had everything I needed Staff was very nice and helpful it not intrusive I loved it can't wait til next visit!!!!!
Room very spacious and comfortable. Enjoyed the water view & screen patio
Noise from upstairs & next door Audible even when people walking and talking in normal conversation tones
Location was beautiful, our room was steps from the beach.
We were on the bottom floor of the motel and could hear the people above us walking around in their room. It was very loud and woke us up early every morning.
Loved that it was smaller and private. The staff were great and receptive to our needs. The grounds were well maintained. The units were clean. We had a great stay. A wonderful place to get away with family.
The beds were hard. Did not sleep well. The furniture lacked that "comfy" feeling.
Noise in our room. Would never stay in hotel again. No privacy sitting on porch Maybe a cottage.
Would have liked more essentials stocked in the kitchen, I.e. salt and pepper, extra large bowls, cooking utensils. Also longer hrs. for restocking towels, etc.
Really close to the beach. The Sandbar is a great place for Happy Hour or lunch or dinner. Easy to get to location. Bike paths to take you anywhere. We will be back. Mike. East Aurora , New York.
This question. Can't come up with an answer.
I liked the pool and the location. There was not much interaction with the staff but the ones I did interact with were very cordial. The beach was fine. I would definitely come back.
I did not like the fact that there was not daily maid service. Everywhere I have previously stayed had that. I did not like the beach chairs, they were terribly uncomfortable. I also will never stay on the first floor of the motel again. The noise from people walking above was loud.
I really enjoyed my stay and I loved the proximity to the beach. I absolutely love that every room in the motel has a view of the gulf.
The only thing I didn't like was the wi-fi connection or that there's not great cell service; however, it could be cause all the guests are signed on to it, which makes it slower.
