My friend and I chose the Dolphin Inn because it was one of the cheapest options on the island with the highest rating. We were not disappointed. The staff was very friendly. The pool was nice and surprisingly large. They offer floats, sand toys, umbrellas, chairs, and even kayaks free to use. Bikes are available to rent for just $10...

I love the people here. They are so friendly and nice every time we come. I like the access to the pool also. It is at the quiet end of the island and I really like being able to walk to see a movie!!

My husband and our two kids stayed in the one bedroom apartment for six nights. Our second story room had a beautiful view of the canal and a window that looked over the pool. Our room was spacious and perfect for a long stay. When we arrived, we felt very welcome by Travis. He thought of everything to make our...

I read a lot of positive reviews before booking the Dolphin Inn and now, after spending 4 nights there, I would like to join in ☺ It’s located a little outside of the center of Fort Myers Beach so you can either take the car or use a trolley for 75 cents one way. For us it was perfect as...

I had stayed at the Dolphin Inn the weekend of April 28th. Great place to stay on island on the backwater. Nice rooms, efficiencies, and a great pool. Kayak equipment to explore the backwaters. Very nice people checking you in making you most comfortable.

Stayed here for a few days at the beginning of May and wished we had stayed longer. The location is superb, we had a ground floor room overlooking the canal, Every morning we had herons, egrets and many other animals come paying us a visit. The staff were all very helpful and welcoming. The beach only a couple of minutes...

This is a terrific small hotel with rooms that provide a home away from home including all the amenities needed to dine in. Our room opened onto the pool area but was still very quiet. The pool deck offers plenty of lounge chairs and tables with umbrellas. Beach access can be found directly across the street. I cannot say enough...
