"Very nice hotel by the beach."
Perfect beach location. Kitchen was nice and saves money if you don't mind cooking. Nice hotel overall buy with some minor gripes. Rooms are getting a little dated and could use updating...not too bad but just saying. AC unit is right next to bed and blows on you unless you build a baracade with the luggages. It would have been nice if the beach umbrellas […] were included with the room. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"A room with a view"
Fantastic location - room at the ground floor with direct access to the beach. Rather expensive, but the location justifies the price - a bit old school.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Awesome place !"
Great room and location on Sanibel. Management was awesome and hot us our room early! Wonderful location-Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Very nice. Even though we didn't have a room on the gulf the view was good. It was very hot everyday but the A/C kept the room very cool. Convenient to anything on both Sanibel and Captiva. Would stay there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice hotel, very clean"
Had a great stay, room was very nice. Close to the beach, when you stay you have to eat at the hotel restaurant! Food was great! Total atmosphere around pool was amazing as well!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Convenient Beach/Pool Hotel"
The hotel grounds were very nice. The pool is a good size with comfortable seating with tables, towels, umbrellas. Access to beach is very good. Restaurant on premises pretty good. Room itself was comfortable though not very large. Bathroom a bit tight. Convenient balcony with chairs, small table. Room decor a bit dated, but bed comfortable. Main negative […] issue is the door from outside to the room has frosted window panels which allow in too much light during night from outside (maybe from lamps on grounds). Perhaps Blackout Curtain would help if someone is disturbed by light coming in. My husband and I were happy with the location. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Will go again"
Facilities are nice and we'll maintained . We will stay there againGenuine Expedia guest review
Great hotel on a great island. We will be returning soon!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The location was great for the beach however the room was filthy. I went to make a cup of coffee and as I started to set up the coffee cups there was a white substance crusted in the bottom. The bathroom was also filthy. Dust a half inch think on sink plumbing behind pedistal sink obvious when sitting on the toilet. There were smudges on the walls that […] could easily have been clean an dust that had obviously accumulated at base of sink, wall tiles, and corners of floors. The shower had pink slimy mold on the shower base and shmutz on the fixtures and rails. Quite disappointing! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
We had a great time and enjoyed our stay. Loved that there was a pool and the beach right in our backyard.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"On the beach"
This Inn is on the beach, so in most cases you can't expect it to be super clean. Well, the rooms were very clean and nice touches were added to the tissues, like made into flowers or swan towels, thank you to the cleaning staff - you are wonderful. The biggest and most glaring part of this hotel is the glass windows going into your room - at night, […] when you turn off the lights to go to sleep, well you can't - your bathroom light is on - no I checked, it is the lights from the outside halls that are on - there is absolutely no way to cover these windows - they are the top 1/2 of the door - so going to sleep with the lights on is the only option. Please add a curtain rod and blackout curtains to these terrible doors. We ate at the pool bar and lunch was very good. I was initially disappointed to not get a 2nd floor room, but then very happy we didn't - the back porch is Very convenient to just drop off your beach chairs and umbrella without going through the room. We were told we would be poolside - well, every room on property is considered poolside if you are not directly facing the ocean - even the building behind the other building is considered poolside. If they change out the doors - my rating would be so much higher - just hard to rate high when I couldn't sleep. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great Location but Overdue for a Major Remodel"
Located on the quiet west end of Sanibel, this hotel is directly on the beach but in dire need of remodeling. The staff were very courteous and the grounds tropically landscaped. The pool is large with lots of seating and tables. A nice feature is the covered pool bar area where you can also order lunch. A lot of the pool area furniture needs cleaning […] and/or replacing. Many pool towels were thread bare. Outside building upkeep is fair at best. Our room was clean (except for the dingy bathroom floor grout ) but reminded me of something out of the 60s. If you are looking for a less expensive and relatively clean hotel directly on the beach in Sanibel, but don't mind that it needs upgrades and remodeling, this is a good choice.

"Plan to stay here again"
The bathroom and bedroom were updated, loved the granite and glass shower!!! The bed was comfy, The frig and microwave were tucked out of the way. Not like most places where they take up floor or dresser space. We were so happy that the balcony was screened in to keep out mosquitos and no seeums. The place was completely booked, but it was nice and […] quiet in our room. never heard any sounds through the walls, thank goodness. We plan to stay here again for our future anniversary trips. It is nice and quiet and that is hard to find. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good place to stay if the deal is right"
The rooms were small, it was not the most comfortable or glamorous hotel by any means, but the price for a descent hotel right on Sanibel beach was excellent. The on-site restaurant was good and never crowded, although one person doing server, bartender, busing, and host was not enough on Friday night. Many of the customers were annoyed with the service […] that night. The rooms were very average but again usually you will have to pay quite a bit more for a hotel on Sanibel beach. Sanibel is an awesome location and next time I think we will pay a little more for a nicer hotel. There were no "resort fees" and for about 125 a night including taxes via trip advisor - hotels.com w/coupon I don't think you can get another 3 star hotel with 4+ rating on hotels.com for any near that price. If the price is much higher I would not consider this hotel as there are many better options at around 150-200 in the area if you watch for deals. We brought our own bikes and beach equipment, but spent more time sitting at the pool due to a Sanibel issue of noseums (sand fleas) on and around the beach (especially at night). I would recommend this hotel if looking for (low $$$ on the beach) but not for any other reason. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location and service, ok room"
Service and location were great. Room was ok, but we didn't spend too much time in the room because we were always out and about. We had 3 kids so it was a little tight with 2 double beds and a pull out bed, but we did fine and didn't bother to ask for more room. It worked out. Hotel staff was very friendly and helpful when we asked for certain things. […] For the price it can't be beat. I would stay again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Beautiful secluded beach and fantastic property"
The rooms were cute and private, with very comfortable bed, and good storage for long term stay. Amazing ocean view from virtually every room. Loved it, and will book return travel soon.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great place to relax"
I stayed at this hotel for three nights with my teenage son. We got a room with a view of the Gulf of Mexico and a screened lanai . We had a cold fridge and microwave. The room was big. Pool is huge and cleaned daily. Shuffleboard fun. Wish they had a hot tub. Restaurant serves breakfast till 1130 and not too expensive. For 125 a night you can't beat […] it. Traditions restaurant a few resorts down is the best for beachfront dining! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great place to stay, and just steps to the beach."
This hotel is very nice and the staff is great. We had a second story view of the pool and beach. Short distance to the water and very secluded beach. I would definitely stay at the West Wind again!Genuine Expedia guest review
Room was clean although the coffee was not replaced the next day. The used mugs were also still there uncleaned. The floor mats beside the bed was also dark dirty. The bathroom was clean.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"will stay again"
Only disappointment was not having a bath tub (only shower in room). Also, had to drive everywhere - nothing (restaurants, shops, etc.) were within walking distance. But the positives far outnumbered those 2 things. Great view of ocean, right on the beach. Screened in balcony was wonderful. Housekeeping staff very attentive. Front desk staff very a […] ccommodating. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Short walk to the beach. All the balconies and patios were screened in.Genuine Expedia guest review
Overall our family visit went well. The location was quiet when you would require peace. No unruly guests. The room was as expected based on the reviews we read. Central air conditioning would help with room noise. The beach was very clean the pool area was clean and had ample seating and towels.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Home away from Home"
Stayed 5 days and found the hotel provided everything one could want or need, not a 5 star hotel but a very solid 3 star hotel which has a wonderful beach ,nice pool area with a bar.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Best Bang for your Sanibel buck"
Great hotel, very nice, very clean, good sized pool, easily accessible to the beach.Genuine Expedia guest review
The beach was beautiful. We enjoyed seashell hunting daily and found some really pretty shells. The skies and sunsets will always be remembered.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Cute hotel very close to beach"
Hotel room itself was a little old fashioned and bathroom was a little small but nothing too bad. Kitchenette was a great option and our 1st floor room was steps to the pool and beach access is right from hotel.. We let our kids go back and forth alone. very nice ambiance , would stay again..Genuine Expedia guest review
We have a very nice stay. The Inn was very clean and the staff was very nice and accommodating. Our kids had a great time swimming in the pool, having lunch at the outside pool bar area and swimming in the gulf. The shelling was incredible, and Michael at the front desk helped us pick the right time to look for all the great shells. The sunsets were […] not directly viewable in the summer from the beach at the inn, but just a good walk away. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice hotel for a family stay in Sanibel"
Good location and the hotel has a good restaurant with friendly staff. The facility could be updated but it's still a good place for a family vacation.Genuine Expedia guest review

"sanibel side trip"
we made a spur of the moment trip to Sanibel while in Florida... there is a modest amount of shopping and upscale dining compared with other tourist destinations and I would have been disappointed if I had paid top dollar...but overall it was a relaxing stay for 2 people in late 50'sGenuine Expedia guest review
very nice area. The hotel was located right on the beach.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Great place to relax. Hotel has been updated. Clean and comfortable. Short walk to the beach on the property. I wouldn't take active teens here but younger kids would be ok. The hotel restaurant was very good. The pool bar was lacking as far as food options and its hours of operation. That is my only complaint.Genuine Expedia guest review
Room wasn't plush, but was comfortable, clean and well-maintained. It had everything (kitchenette, screened-in balcony) we needed for a comfortable stay. Staff were very friendly and courteous. Easy access to a very nice beach. Pool was clean and well-maintained. Hotel is centrally located on island, convenient to restaurants, shops, etc. All in all, […] a great place to stay for a relaxing getaway. We will go back. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Perfect location, friendly staff"
A last minute getaway couldn't have been better. The hotel is right on the beach. Room was spacious with a small kitchenette. Staff was friendly and knowledgeable. Pool area is large and well kept. Rented bikes for one of our days and had a delicious breakfast at the onsite restaurant one morning. Will definitely be back with the rest of our family […] . Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Older hotel, however, aging gracefully - well kept grounds, clean but dated rooms, well maintained pool, outdoor bar with lunch service, excellent but again rather dated restaurant on premises, and last but not least only steps to the beach. Two stories and all rooms have somewhat of an ocean view with either a screened terrace or balcony where you […] can enjoy morning coffee or late afternoon cocktail. Bike rentals available and since property was located sort of mid island was able to tour the entire island easily. Internet rate was better then hotel's standard rate and would not negotiate for an additional night at the lower rate but other than that very pleased with our stay.

"Sunset views. Close to beach and Captiva."
Stayed eight days. Asked for different room ( ocean view), very accommodating. The view to ocean is excellent! Staff is friendly! Outside bar staff outstanding and friendly! I recommend" Happy Hour" on Saturday as well !More families would stay in. Great place to relax with bikes, excellent pools, and beach set up accommodations.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice place to stay."
We enjoyed our brief stay at the West Wind. Check-in and out was very efficient. The pool has rinsing areas for feet and shells, and restrooms so you didn't have to go back to your room, as well as a small bar/lunch area. There is also a restaurant on-site. We had a mini-frig and microwave in-room - always appreciated. Beach chairs and umbrella were […] extra, but set up for you. The beach is close at hand. My only critique is not of the Inn. The beach has a gauntlet of shells to get into the ocean. I would definitely recommend water shoes. We had fairly strong winds in early May, and I was surprised and the undertow. It was very difficult to get into the water. On the other hand, shells were everywhere for collecting. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Natural Gulf Coast Nature Beauty"
Awesome get away! Quiet, serene, and relaxing with all the amenities we needed at the West Wind Inn. Sanibel and Captive Islands are a natural kept beauty with limited commercial progress. Can't wait to visit again, only next time for a longer stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice place, great location!"
We have stayed at a few places on Sanibel and try not to expect much when it comes to the hotels on the Gulf. This place was far better than anticipated. The pool bar was great! The rooms clean and comfy. Plenty of parking and very friendly staff. If you room is ready, they will let you check in early. We were unpacked into our room and walking on the […] beach before 1:00pm. Pretty great stay. We'll be back! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
