I've struggled with how to rate Dolphin Inn, so I decided to give it average and let you decide. I read many reviews and looked at photos, so I felt like I had a realistic expectation. No frills, good location, laundry facilities, wifi, kitchen etc. We had bookend stays here for a trip to Key West on the ferry and...

First of all, if you're looking for a high class place, with chocolates on the pillows and turn down service....keep looking! If you're looking for a great place, with dynamite location and the friendliest people ever, you have found it! It was like staying with family. Travis is the owner and he is just as down to earth and personable...

If you like motels that have beautiful , well maintained grounds, a big beautiful pool and the friendliest hosts you'll ever encounter then the Dolphin Inn is your spot. Great vibe and really good amenities only add to the experienced. Longer walk from the start of the beach to the water then it is from the Inn to the sand...my...

We had to evacuate due to Hurricane Matthew and we found a gem on Ft Myers Beach. Not the big new fancy hotels, but this was a taste of old Florida with spacious and clean rooms. Private beach access, they have a nice pool. Kayaks beach chairs and umbrellas are there for your use as well

This is our second stay as a family. The rates are very reasonable in October as it is off-season. The family who runs this hotel are very kind and helpful. Check-in is a breeze. We stayed in room 7. It has one bedroom with one bath, also two other beds on enclosed porch off the living room. The hotel is...

Lovely little motel. The beach is across the road and the lagoon with boat moorings is at the back of the property. The view out of our room to the lagoon was stunning. A bonus to have a little pool on the front as well. The rooms are dated and could do with an update but perfectly clean and comfortable....

We were checking into a regular room when Travis the owner stopped by to introduce himself and welcome us. When he saw we had 3 people and the room had only 1 bed (my daughter usually sleeps on a cot when we travel) he asked if we wanted to move to one of the apartments that had extra beds so...

Wish we were staying longer at this wonderful small resort. Our room was located in the rear overlooking the dock and channel which runs out to the bay. Very relaxing on the lounge chairs outside our room with several visiting egrets looking for handouts. You also can use the kayaks on the dock.Our room was very clean and had a...

Hmmmmm.......let me start with the positive -- pool was large and inviting and the price is perfect for budget minded travelers. Staff was friendly. Beach is across the street and beach access is easy. Location is perfect. Trollee stops directly in front of hotel. 7-11 and Charley's boat house in walking distance. View behind hotel is of bay and quite...
