We have enjoyed the accommodations of a 1 bedroom , efficiency. Very clean, a little dated but the bathrooms & Kitchen areas were great! Helpful staff is always available. Easy walk to some good restaurants & a perfect place if you like to bike.

I am only leaving 1 star because the website requires me to. Our family chose this as our destination for our yearly sisters trip. Booking the room was a hassle and even tho the website has a special rate listed we were not given it. We checked in to cottage 22 on May 8th and checked out the 10th. The cottage is small for being advertised for 6 people. We had 5 and we were completely cramped, not to mention there was only service for 4 despite a "6 person" cottage. It is completely outdated. The shower was so small you couldn't even turn around in it. 1 bathroom is not enough for a family of 4+. These are the issues we had with the room:
1. Not enough service (seating, dishes, towels, etc) for our family
2. Ceiling fan was swirling and shaking so hard and you could clearly see the screw hanging out of down rod. So we were unable to use.
3. Vents on window AC units with black dust and grime. We had to wash them ourselves.
4. The valance and curtains in unit had visible cobwebs and grime hanging from them.
5. Opened the bag of sheets for pullout bed and there were boogers and hair stuck to them.
6. Unit had large ants and cockroaches.
7. Refrigerator did not close properly and our food spoiled.
I could continue on but you get the just.
We went to the office to address the issues, asked to speak to the manager and we have been told Patty is unavailable for a week. I'm sorry but if the manager is out someone takes the place as acting manager - who else would handle issues?
Again giving this place 1 star is being generous!

Thank you for leaving us your review. We apologize that you had a less then pleasant stay with us. As this is not our intention for any of our guests. I do believe that when you spoke to the staff on site, they wanted to speak to the manager to get their input on the items you brought to our attention so that a fair decision could be made on compensation for you. When ever a guest brings up so many items and are asking for money off their stay, it has to go thru the proper channels. Again, we apologize for the issues you had during your stay.

We stayed for two nights in April in an A frame cottage Number 22.
This is a very pretty Inn with motel style rooms and the A frame cottages situated right on the roadside.
Colourful and full of character, there is a pool onsite and behind the property is a river with grassed area for games and barbecues.
Bikes are available to hire at an additional cost.
The A frame has a spacious, bright and fresh seating area with TV and fully equipped kitchen with coffee making facilities. The rattan furniture is clean and modern and the whole room is tiled. An open stair case leads to a bedroom upstairs with a very small outdoor seating area. This bedroom is bright and more spacious but as the bathroom is downstairs we chose to sleep in the bedroom next to it.
This bedroom looks and feel more dated. The bed was not great quality and we didn't have a great nights sleep.A door from this bedroom lead out to a picnic table. The small bathroom had a shower and looked and felt in need of a refresh.
There is free WIFI and parking right outside. It is a drive to the beach. Toiletries for the bathroom are not provided. This is a self catering cottage so the bed isn't made up for you. The A frame has a front porch which feels private due to the clever planting between the next door neighbours. It was well furnished with chairs, table and sunshade.
This was an unusual place to stay, fun and quirky. It has the potential to be outstanding but the A frame was tired, grubby and dated especially in the bathroom and ground floor bedroom.
The staff were pleasant and friendly with good local knowledge and where great at getting us checked in even though we had arrived early.

Room Tip: our A frame number 22 was really cute and quirky but in need of a bathroom and bedroom update

Thank you for leaving us your review. The owners are working on getting bids on renovating the cottages to bring them up to date. However, even when they do get a face lift, they will still be designed with an ole' Floridian twist. As we try to stay true to the historic qualities of the property. We will definitely look into the mattress in this room, as we don't want our guests to not have good nights sleep while they stay with us. Thank you for bringing that to our attention.

If you looking for a reasonable stay on Sanibel Island Anchor Inn & Cottages is it. My husband and I have stayed several times over the last couple of years and just love this charming place. We have enjoyed the accommodations of staying in the studio, efficiency and the A-frame cottage. Every unit has always been very clean, nicely decorated and the staff is friendly. Will definitely be back again!
