We were two couples visiting and sightseeing on Sanibel Is and we had made reservations some weeks prior to going. We arrived at the Sandpiper around 5:30 pm only to find no one at the office despite the fact office hours were posted saying they closed at 6:00. We used the office phone outside and called the number provided but... More

We stayed here for three nights during our roundtrip and were really satisfied. We arrived in the late afternoon and our keys were waiting for us, as the office was already closed. Our apartment (Sandpiper Unit 2) was quite large for two people with two full bathrooms, kitchen, sofa, etc. The decoration and the colors showed 'beach' all over and... More

The Sandpiper Inn was great. They have thought of EVERYTHING you could possibly need to have a comfortable stay. They had dishes, beach chairs, an umbrella, complimentary bikes, a corkscrew/bottle opener, paper towels, laundry facilities, the list goes on. We wanted for nothing during our stay. The bikes were super useful, although I will say the beach was definitely more... More

We loved the Sandpiper Inn and will definitely be back. We loved the way our room looked, the price, the location and the service. The lady (don't remember her name) that came to our room and asked if everything was going well, was very friendly and even left us some sand toys at our door to use with our little... More

Very clean. The place has all the amenities of home, plenty of room for the family and a great setting, nothing says tropics like looking out at the banana leaves from the window of your shower. You can hang out in the sun all day and watch the lizards or chill out in the front room next to the exceptional... More

We have been coming here on and off for 10 years . Great place to stay if your looking for a home away from home! My husband even proposed to me here and we will never go anywhere else as long as the sandpiper is still open. The beach is only a block away and shops/restaurants are close by. Managers... More

Stayed at the Sandpiper 3/26 -3/29 of 2016. The Sandpiper is a nice Mom 'n Pop alternative to the pricey Condo style rentals abundant on Sanibel. Comfortable, clean with a full kitchen. We ate breakfasts in the Sandpiper and Late lunch/early dinners at area restaurants. Walk to a nice beach 5 minutes away. Free bikes are a plus. Saves $$... More

We had a great stay at the Sandpiper Inn. Our room was clean with enough space for our family. We liked having a kitchen to prepare breakfast and lunch. There were adequate dishes and cooking supplies as well as beach chairs and an umbrella. We had an upstairs room so had a nice breeze in the evening. The Sandpiper Inn... More

My family and I have traveled to Sanibel Island every couple of years for several years and we have always stayed at the Sandpiper Inn. It is very clean and comfortable. We love having the kitchen and access to laundry...especially more recently with the addition of small children to our group! The inn is very conveniently located for beach, restaurants... More

The building is divided into 4 units , 2 on the second level accessed by stairway and 2 on the ground level. We had unit 4 which was on the top back away from the road. On arrival they simply have your room key put in an envelope and tacked on the wall outside of the office. We never saw... More
