After reading the reviews here on TripAdvisor we did not hesitate to book a 3 night stay at the Dolphin Inn. A we were not disappointed. Arriving late afternoon after a trip through the Everglades. We were greated by the owner Travis. So friendly and he gave us the "Grand" tour of Fort Myers Beach. Told us everything we needed...

We just had our third trip to the Dolphin Inn. It was even better than our first two trips. Do NOT hesitate to go to the Dolphin Inn. You will NOT regret it.

Stayed 3 nights. Loved that there were kayaks available for free and bicycles to rent. Across from the beach, just a short walk. Older hotel, needs some work. Fabulous pool! The owner, Travis was great, but we ran out of toilet paper, and had to go out and get our own. All in all, great place to stay, good value.

During our recent stay in Clearwater, Florida, Wh hired a car to see a bit more of the State that we missed last time. We wanted to be around the Ft. Myers / Sanibel Island area and found this gem of a Hotel. We mainly wanted a base to go exploring from, and this was perfect. We had a great...

My husband and I stayed here to celebrate our 6th anniversary, it could not have been more special for us. We stayed in a Lagoon view room with a nice BIG screened in Patio which overlooked the lagoon! The room itself we feel was a bargain and also well maintained! It was clean and roomy and had everything we needed....

This was our second visit to the Dolpin Inn, but the first with a toddler. We still enjoyed our stay, but we more aware of the slightly worn state of the buildings and furniture as our toddler is very curious! The owner was very friendly and helpful. The location is still perfect - on a quiet stretch of Estero Boulevard,...

My first trip to Florida and I was not disappointed. My sister-in-law did all the research and found this gem. The units are small - we stayed in a bayview - but the service is unbeatable. Travis (the owner) goes out of his way to accommodate. I've never seen an owner do everything from taking out the garbage to doing...

This was our second stay at the Dolphin Inn, we had a great stay there last summer. Apart from all the other benefits Travis and Jennifer offer tempting return rates for guests and you'll find that most of the guests staying there with you have come back again and again. Why? Thoughtful and friendly hosts who really make you feel...

Where to start. This is a great place to stay if you want a laid back atmosphere, caring owners, and a great location! The Dolphin Inn had all to offer; we kayaked, swam in clean pool, just crossed the street to the huge beach, and were able to walk to the local stores and many restaurants. Liked the fact that...

Not only were we able to borrow the bikes for free the entire time we were there, but when we got a flat tire in Lovers Key State Park, Travis came and got us. The rooms aren't cleaned daily, which is why I gave the cleanliness mark down, but other than that, the place is great.
