Terra Nostra was a great restaurant nearby as was Charley,s Boat house and Pincher,s crab shack and a little gem for breakfast was Heavenly Biscuit. Have been to Flordia 30-35 times but...

If you enjoy a relaxing, quite, getaway, the Dolphin Inn is your best choice on Ft Myers Beach. Although small, it offers all the comforts of home. This was our second stay and truly enjoyed the room on the bay.......

Late review but have to leave one. The owner Travis is an outstanding person. He's hands on and very helpful. Very knowledgeable on the area. Its small location but cozy. Our room was in front of the pool. This location was clean inside and out. The rooms have dvd players and they have a pretty large collection of movies to...

Didn't stay here - although it looked lovely. We rented bikes from here & just couldn't believe the delightfully trusting attitude - so refreshing! We took the bikes but they didn't want ID or deposit. In fact, we couldn't even remember our FM address so we just said '1st house behind Charley's Boathouse'. Bikes were great & the lovely attutide...

We were pleasantly surprised when we arrived at this Inn. Arrangements were made at the last minute after a change in our plans. The owner could not have been more kind. The Inn is clean and we could not have found better service. We want to thank them for a wonderful stay. KMKWAS

We went for 4 nights. You have beach access just passing the street. The attention of the Owner Travis was excellent. Is better if you have a poll side room. Our room was roomy and clean. For that price, the Dolphin inn is an excellent choice.

We were looking for a hotel where we could keep our jet ski. This hotel has a dock right out back where you can dock your jet ski or boat for your entire stay. The beach is right across the street from the hotel and there is a private walkway. We drove our jet ski over to the beach side...

My husband & I just returned from our stay at the Dolphin Inn. This was the third year that we have gone there & it was "paradise". The owners, Travis & Jennifer, and all of the staff are very kind. We had a pool side room, which was roomy & clean. The pool is fantastic; the other guests are friendly;...

My family and I have been coming for the past three years since Travis and his family bought the hotel. We love it because you are made to feel like you are coming to a friends home instead of a cold hotel. There is a nice pool and great views into the bay from the back. We have a boat...

We stayed at the Dolphin Inn over July 4th weekend. The room was spacious and clean and the owner was very nice and helpful. We woke up in the morning, walked across the beach and watched dolphins swim around in the Gulf. We dooked most meals in the room, which helped save on travel expenses. In the evening we went...
