      • Ideal, romantic location, our room was just steps from the sea and the staff of the Waterside Inn was welcoming and friendly. Most importantly, the bedding was comfortable, towels smelled very clean and heated pool was a BIG winner after cool weather all day.

      • Beach just at the end of the property and the on site bike hire invaluable, perfect place right in the middle of the island, the office staff and owners are GREAT. The rooms are simple and clean.

      • Clean kitchen, large living area, comfy bed in the bedroom, plenty of fans/heating, we just returned from the Waterside Inn on Sanibel Island and a wonderful stay at the waterside inn. I'm not sure this gets such a great rating, excellent customer service and from I understand, the rooms were renovated in 2000. The pool was heated.

      • The location was perfect, beach was not crowded at all,some days seemed as we had the beach all to ourselves and the decor was bright and cheerful. The staff were wonderful, the employees were helpful and nice, the room was very clean and well furnished. The kitchen supplies were barely adequate and fresh towels were provided.

        Internet connection not reliable as advertised and oh yes, the Russian housekeepers were not very friendly.

      • The location was ideal, the beach was clean and uncrowded, this place was very quiet and very enjoyable. The staff were friendly, the room was very nice and had plenty of room for 2 adults, the kitchen was a great plus. Fresh towels were provided and the pools were warm.

        Old style florida and the TV was broken. As far as sanibel, the only meal that was a bust was the hungry heron.
