Seaside Inn invites you to rediscover the charm of a quaint beachfront inn on beautiful Sanibel Island where life’s pace is slower. Unwind by the pool or enjoy a day at the beach looking for shells or soaking up the sun. Seaside Inn offers personalized service along with 32 newly renovated guestrooms, suites and cottages with interiors inspired by the sun bleached sand beyond the dune. Each guestroom and suite is furnished with a comfortable king or queen beds with views of the pool or beach. The cottages offer a separate living area with a new sleeper sofa, full kitchen and one bedroom with a king bed. Each cottage has a deck just off the living area to enjoy the Florida sun with family while overlooking the pool. Each day a complimentary continental breakfast basket is delivered to the rooms for the next morning’s enjoyment. While on Sanibel enjoy the wide variety of outdoor adventures. Spend time exploring the 23 miles of paved nature trails that wind through the wetlands with one of the bikes provided by Seaside Inn. Visit the J.N. Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge to view a wide variety of migratory birds and explore an unspoiled mangrove ecosystem. For more active play, Sanibel Island offers 18 holes of golf on 75 acres of natural lake view fairways and Audubon Cooperative Society wetlands at the Dunes Golf & Tennis Club. For play and relaxation, let Seaside Inn welcome you to the pace of island living.

We had a really great time. Staff and room were tremendous and felt like a home away from home. Steven, Gail and Christina and the rest of the staff are the best! We will be back and look forward to spending more time here.

Hi I think they allow pets in some ground floor apartments, but I agree with Dachsiemom, a quick call will confirm. We loved it there!

It is on the beach. The layout goes like this: parking lot, office, pool, lawn with chairs, beach ( there a grassy area before you get to the sand and shells. The rooms are in a “U” shape around the office and pool area. Great resort we will definitely return.

"Loved our cottage #105"
"Every room is great."
