Great trip
The view was the best part. Waking up and having coffee on the screened deck overlooking the ocean was amazing. Room could use some updating. We stayed in the hotel building by the beach. Walls are thin and can hear your neighbor snoring and talking. But sleeping next to the beach and hearing the waves helps. The mattress was also very comfortable in my opinion. Love the beach chairs. Beach is amazing. Renting bikes was a nice Perk. Friendly staff. Clean place. It’s a good value for the price.

Shalimar and Sanibel= A winning combination
Shalimar was fabulous. It is not a luxury hotel but it is perfect in every way. Our second story gulf view motel efficiency was furnished beautifully with comfortable mattresses, plenty of closet and drawer space and a well equipped kitchen and bathroom was so comfortable. The amazing view that you could see from inside the room and the ocean waves you could hear from the screened porch sealed the deal for excellent!! We did not use the pool but it and the grounds were maintained beautifully! It is the nearest motel to the sand and the beach chairs available for free made it so easy to go out anytime. If you stay more than a week, we were there 8 days, you get maid service and they are thorough. Each day it is free to swap out used for clean towels and get toiletries, etc. We would like to stay longer next time, possibly in the cottages which are like beautiful little homes!

Hotel unit was in a great location but needed renovation. Walls between units were thin and you could hear “activity” in the next room, luckily it didn’t last long. The mattress was in bad shape and roaches in the kitchen. Bathroom was ok but worn.

Great Place!
We stayed in room 11 directly facing the Gulf. Really loved it. There is a restaurant you can walk too called the SandBar that had Excellent food and is close enough to walk.

Don't Stay Here!!!!!!!!!!!!
The room was terrible it smelled like mildew and the carpet was wet. The management was nasty, and very rude. I have never be treated in such a way when staying at other places. I would tell any one thinking of staying here to find a different hotel.
