The location was wonderful, the staff friendly, and the pool was great.
We really looked forward to our visit to Sanibel but were disappointed. The room layout was perfect, however, the rug was dirty and had spill stains. Our family's dining chairs in their room had spill stains on them. Mostly dissatisfied with the price for what we got. For $179/$199 a night we expected much better accommodations and also breakfast selection. Since I made the reservations for us & my family it put me in an embarrassing position.
Location, but not much else.
Room shabby, carpets dirty & holes worn into them, furniture dated, pool needs total refurbishing and a heater, the whole place needs new paint, bath tub was atrocious, etc. You get the picture and it's not like it's even a great bargain! The chaise & umbrella set up on beach was nice.
Location The male helper was very helpful.
The smell of mold in the room was terrible. The one bed was so close to the air condition that you could not get away from the blower or the noise. The hotel does not look as bright and clean as depicted on the internet. The check in clerk was rude, telling me I had to wait until she took care of the trash. No one else was waiting, so I felt the trash could also wait, until she took care of me. At breakfast the following morning, nothing was prepared on time. What I would really like is my money back as I feel this place misrepresented itself. Sorry to be so blunt, by my visit was a real letdown.
Great location was great. Shell's every where just steps from the room. Friendly staff.
Bed a little to hard.
How the staff responded to our needs promptly. Several things needed fixing, and they came quickly.
No one warned us about the no-see-ums. Only on checking out, was I offered a paper giving warnings, insect repellent suggestions and finally, a balm to give relief. I was out with the swarms morning and evening as I searched for shells. My itching and burning lasted for weeks. Will we come back? Not sure. It could have been prevented with advance notice.
Good location and full kitchen
Room needed new carpet
My reservation was not in the system, it took the clerk 45 mins to figure out what to do for us, I had my confirmation for 2 queen beds, but none were available, ended up with a king size bed, and paid more than what I was quoted from booking.com..this was not a pleasant experience and I should not have had to pay the additional amount.. The room was clean and spacious however, this was not what I had booked.
beach dirty floors dirty rugs dirty and stained outside walkways dirty grungy bath and shower stalls dirty
They have a large pool and a beach-side location. We liked the balcony off of our room on the 2nd. floor.
The breakfast offering would have been better with perhaps melon or berries in addition to having just bananas and apples. The free bikes need some attention. Just oiling them and keeping air in the tires would be good.
Beach Access. Brfst was good--comprehensive for a continental.
WiFi was sporadic and at best poor reception.
Breakfast, basic, collect from reception eat in room.
Clean rooms and grounds with fully stocked kitchen; very well managed. The morning continental breakfast was fresh and well stocked.
It was nice to walk right out of the back to beach. Umbrellas, lounge chairs & beach towels are provided & set up in the morning.
The inn looked a little run down. Definitely could use some painting. Staff wasn't overly friendly or helpful. Recused to extend a late check out even though we had a large group & was not fully booked. Room was clean but rugs & bedding were run down. Air conditioner didn't work well. Only 2 pillows per bed were provided. Housekeeping was in our room while we were at the beach before we had checked out even though we had told her we weren't out yet. Pool area was run down. Felt more le something at a campground than a hotel. No amenities at all. Think we'd stay somewhere a little nicer next time.
Location was great...beach is practically your backyard, many restaurants near the hotel to choose from, free bike rentals, the staff was extremely friendly which is a big deal to me, the amenities were great and everything was clean.
Absolutely nothing we didn't like!
the location was great, staff was very friendly and helpful
Although the rooms were fairly updated, they were not very clean.
I enjoyed my short stay at Sanibel, the Sunset Beach Inn was very clean, the beds very comfortable. The location was perfect, right on the beach, with chairs and umbrellas put out for the clients daily.
The only complaint I have was that there was a very offensive smell when you first walked into the room. I think maybe it had something to do with the cleaners used. When I got to the desk to check out there was an extra day charged on my bill for the same day. I had to point that out to the front desk girl, who I thought should have noticed that. That is a lot of money to overlook.
Location to the beach and pool, free bikes, comfortable bed and good quality bedding and towels.
Breakfast very sugar based.
Nice pool with free lounge chairs in the pool area and on the beach. Free bikes were also great.
Unfortunately our youngest child still uses training wheels, so not all of us were able to ride.
The location was great. It was easy to spot from the road. Bikes were available. There was some breakfast, but...(see negatives) They did call when the room was ready.
The facility is old. Rugs are so worn, I don't think you could clean them, even if you wanted to. Breakfast was donuts or bagels. There was nowhere to sit. You were told to bring the tray from your room to breakfast. The coffee machine was tucked tightly in a corner, making access difficult. The room was not ready at 4:00 when promised. We had to wait until 5 to get in.
Very friendly staff. Even though we only stayed one night, they let us use the facilities for two days while enjoying the beach. Also got an upgrade on our room for free Clean rooms, roomy.
Nothing to wash the dishes with, in our suite the light in the bathroom kept going out (minor problem). It was an expensive stay, then again I scheduled it on the 4th of July, the busiest time of the year.
Eveything else was perfect. Loved the location, umbrella and lounge chair use on beach, bikes, breakfast, all very good and appreciated. Seems you are in process of updating rooms. Huge facility and hope to return. Loved the space of the rooms. Good luck in meantime...
Stain on room carpet and odor of either mildew or cooking from previous guests. Also, the stove grills were no longer flat on the stove.
Great location with the biggest well maintained pool. Bikes to sign out to ride the nature trails and tennis courts and a shell cleaning station.
I only had 2 days there.
Excellent location Friendly helpful staff Kitchenette
Need more breakfast selections. Colder A/C
The room was clean and comfortable. The pool was clean and inviting. The beach was good even though there were no nice shells.
We arrived around 3PM and check in was at 4PM. We walked on the beach until about 4:10. Our room still was not ready. After my husband hung out in the lobby our room was finally ready a little after 4:30. Some other guests said they were told they could check in at 1030AM but they did not want to be on the top floor. Poor planning on the part of the hotel. The ocean view room was only a little spit of a view if you craned your neck on the screen porch.
