Excellent choice, all around.
The Island Inn was an excellent choice. I was disappointed in the shell hunting. I had heard so much about how excellent the beach was for shelling, but was disappointed. That is no fault oh the Island Inn.

Enjoy the beach!
calm place at the beautiful beach of sanibel. Nice, clean and spacious studio with gulf view and outdoor area. Breakfast was okay. We tried the restaurant for Dinner, which was dark and cold. Food was okay but overpriced.

Great place to stay
we loved our stay my wife and kids stayed for the weekend and loved it. the staff was great everyone was very nice and helpful, the room was very spacious and the beds were very comfortable. we loved that the lanai led to the pool/ Beach. the only think that it was a bit dissapointing was the continental breakfast becuase they didn't even have cereal? or any oatmeal there very little choices. other then that we absolutely loved it.

a bit of heaven
The only negative I can cite is that the WiFi -- 8 different routers -- ebbed and flowed ... mostly ebbed. I'd happily go back
