We will be back!
My husband and I got married on Sanibel Island 7 years ago. We were in Florida with our kids, grandparents, aunts, uncles, etc and my husband and I thought, why not take a night and a day and go back for a visit to our favorite place. We found Waterside Inn online and the price and location was perfect! When we arrived, the staff at the front dest/office were WONDERFUL! The beach was right there-just down the steps from our room. We only got a hotel room but, next year we will hopefully get one of the idyllic looking cottages. Needless to say, we will be back.
The staff was amazing, so accommodating and there for you when needed. Clean, Cozy Beachy rooms. was paradise :)
Feeling it's age, but still worth it
Location. On the beach. Seconds from the sand and water. It was clean, except things are worn and a bit outdated.
Bit old and ever so slightly musty. Shows it's age in the cracked cabinets and creaky sliding doors.
With a private beach boasting perfect sunsets almost every night, Waterside Inn on the Beach gives travelers the true Sanibel Island experience without an exorbitant price. The grounds are covered in tropical palm trees that sway in the breeze off the water while guests can lay on a lounge chair amidst them.

There’s Joey’s Custard for a sweet treat, and Coffee Bar @Bailey’s just over a mile away.
