                  It was a very nice place we found, to celebrate our 40 years married, sure we will go again thanks a lot

                  Room was clean, location good. We got there very late and left very early every day so we never saw the office open. They were planty of clean towels.

                  Over bed was not made during our stay and also I think the bathroom was not clean either, but they were 4 towels, so we did have clean towels. Of course I know that this is a budget price motel.

                  I have to say that Anchor Inn and Cottages was a very pleasant surprise. The complex has a combination of different types of rooms and I stayed in the motel-type rooms. I wasn't expecting much because of the price but was shocked at how clean the rooms were and how organized they were with towel replacement and beach chair and bike rental. I would definitely recommend this place as a great stay in Sanibel and would definitely come back in the future.

                  My door lock was a little flimsy but honestly I think I probably could have left the door completely unlocked and it wouldn't have been an issue.

                  This was a quaint and clean clean clean place!! Super friendly staff! Thanks Diane at the front desk! Although we didn't stay in a cottage, the studio had plenty of space!!!

                  Had 3 travelers but accidentally booked a king bed. Immediately sent an email to correct the mistake and received an email from the owner saying not to worry, she had switched the reservation to 2 double beds. When we arrived, the owner denied that she had received the email, had a king bed for us, and suggested one of us sleep on the tile floor! (I had the email from her confirming the 2 double beds with me on my phone!) We spent one horribly uncomfortable night-3 to a bed-then left the room empty the rest of the week and stayed with a friend down the road. We threw our money away on a room we couldn't use at the Anchor Inn.

                  Small, old-fashioned place suited our needs just fine. Not fancy with all the bells and whistles but located on the main drag and close enough to everything we wanted to do on Sanibel and Captiva without costing us any body parts. About 10 miles from the superior shell beaches on Captiva which is why we made this one of our overnight stops.

                  No food on premises but lots of good restaurants just down the road so we didn't really care.

                  Wanted the privacy offered by the cottage. The unit was perfect. There was nothing about it beyond being a unique cabin experience that would make me return but I would definitely return. We loved the loft. I like 5 star facilities and this is not 5 stars but again it just works. I could list things that I might change but then it would take away from the rustic appeal. Maybe one enhancement would be for a ceiling fan in the loft.

                  Loved the layed back atmosphere. Very quiet, peaceful, so clean with a beautiful tropical landscape surrounding the cute,cute cottages and Inn. Plan to stay next year... Didn't have the ocean view, but close enough to walk or bike to.

                  The wonderfully clean and accessible swimming pool. The beautifully manicured grounds. The friendly and helpful staff. This was such a comfortable and wonderful place to stay especially for the price. I would definitely return here again. I stayed here with a friend after we attended a conference .....

                  Very friendly helpful staff. Clean. Quaint. Excellent value for a location where accommodation generally is expensive.

                  Staff are passionate and knowledgeable about Sanibel Island. The kitchen had everything we needed and the room was charming. Bike rentals on premises made it easy--we spent very little time in the room and lots exploring the island from the Inn's central location. The pool was nice after a long day in the sun and we used the table and chairs outside the room for meals and just relaxing. We hope to return some day.
