Island Inn’s Hotel Rooms & Suites

Island Inn has six types of hotel suites to choose from. All of these accommodations are located in either our Kimball Lodges with its awesome gulfviews, Starky Lodge with its large studio rooms and Matthews Lodge with its great location and updated accommodations. The three lodges are spread around Island Inn’s 10 acres and all are within yards of the warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico.

Island Inn prides itself on providing guests with all the accommodations one would expect from Sanibel Island’s most established Inn. Rates for all rooms include daily maid service, free in-room Wi-Fi, Cable TV, iPod/iPhone docking stations, use of our private beach, free beach chairs, use of all our game facilities(tennis courts, shuffleboard, horseshoes and picnic/BBQ stations), and use of our heated pool and Sundeck.

All rooms come with in room electronic safe, flat screen TVs with DVD players, are in VERY close proximity to our private beach bordering the Gulf, are close to our on-site restaurant Traditions on the Beach and all have been recently modernized. See room descriptions below:

Island Inn’s Cottages & Beach House

Island Inn has five Sanibel Island cottage configurations to choose from! We have cottages ranging in size from 1 bedroom cottages perfect for couples or small families to cottages big enough to accommodate up to twelve people. All units are located right on the beach and have been recently updated.

Our cottages were designed with large rooms, large windows and full kitchens for a wide-open feel, perfect for your group or family. Each cottage is sited a mere stone’s throw from the waters of the Gulf of Mexico. All cottages are professionally maintained by Island Inn – which means no surprises, unless you count the pleasant ones.

Guest Testimonials

“Quiet, Superbly Run Inn”

Sanibel is not known for luxurious lodgings — that simply isn’t what people come here for. But if you are looking for a quiet, superbly run inn with immaculately clean rooms and fine beach views, your search can stop right more

Sure, some of the furniture could do with a upgrade. (I understand that some rooms at the inn have already been upgraded; ours had not.) And the breakfast, while perfectly adequate, could be more creative (eg, some nice jams to complement the hot croissants, or granola to go with the fresh fruit and yoghurt.) But the staff bends over backward to make your stay pleasant and stress free, there are lots of extra towels, nice toiletries, etc. Bottom line: the Island Inn represents good value and provides an excellent base for touring the Sanibel-Captiva area.

“Beautiful Peaceful Haven”

I traveled to this beautiful peaceful haven Feb8-12,2014 and thoroughly enjoyed my stay. From check-in to check-out everyone we encountered was very helpful and friendly. The screened in porch of our second floor room was furnished with a table and 4 chairs.Our view of the water and property was great. Our room had two read more

queen size beds, a sofa bed,full kitchen with table and 4 chairs and also a counter with two stools. The full bathroom had two sinks. The pool was lovely and there were chairs near the beach entrance that could be taken to beach. Bikes were available for rent and very reasonable.The free continental breakfast was plenty for me. There was coffee,juice,yogurt,hard boiled eggs,pastries,and fresh cut fruit. Dinner at the restaurant was fabulous and the live music was fun. A rental car allowed us to dine at other area restaurants,shop at local grocery for happy hour supplies. Every afternoon we had happy hour on beach and enjoyed the greatest show on earth …..SUNSET…..Rental car also took these travelers to the island SPA, a marina to catch a sunset cruise and unfortunately back to the airport to return home.

“A perfect getaway!”

We were fortunate enough to get the last room available and it was in the Starkey Lodge. What a beautiful room. Loved the screened in porch, spacious bathroom and all of the amenities one could want. We loved the views, the beach (with wonderful shelling), the landscaping with the well maintained sand area, beautiful trees and shelters, the breakfast and most of all the very helpful and kind staff. It was all perfect.[/expand]

“Back to the best on the Island”

New management has really done amazing things here in the past 3 years. Starkey Lodge, that used to have the worst rooms, now has their best. The new screened porches and walk out doors on the first floors are just what the doctor ordered. Kimball lodge rooms completely redone – now also have walkouts from the screened porches on the first floor.

I stayed in the Beach House – 3 bedrooms, 2 full baths, great new kitchen – all new decor, laundry! Awesome job by the Inn. I felt like a more

This place is not for everyone – if you are looking for the four star experience – head to Naples…. but if you are looking for that old Island Inn experience – it’s back here under this team and incredibly helpful and friendly staff. The shareholders of this property can be proud once again. This is the kind of place you go back to every year – and the staff will go out of their way to show you that they are glad you came.

Beautiful property, lots of improvements and ongoing improvements, perfect location on the island. Happy and friendly low key guests make this place an annual favorite for people from all over the world. I might add, the shelling was fantastic last week when i was there. We also went out with Captain Mike and lucked into a nice Snook!
