We had a delayed trip due to a family situation. Tropical Winds management was wonderful about allowing us to bump our vacation back a couple months with no loss in deposited funds, despite very little advance warning. We had one of the cabins set back from the beach a hundred yards or so, Note that the cabins are older but have been updated and are being improved. They are not fancy but are very clean and well appointed besides, folks, it is Sanibel, you aren't there for room service, at le... Read more

Had a wonderful stay here, great laid back community and owners. Our beach cottage was a short walks away from the beach but close enough to hear the gentle sea breezes rolling in. My only complaint was the beds were a little uncomfortable and the window shaker AC unit kept abruptly turning on and off throughout the night.

If you are looking for a modern hotel with all the amenities and a bustling rowdy beach scene...Tropical Winds is not your place. If you want a quaint small (mostly quiet) motel with a great beach this is it. The location is just far enough away to lose the crowds but close enough to restaurants, shopping etc.The managers Cheryl and Luke were always helpful and our housekeeper Elsie was superb. Back to the location....we saw a herd of 12 manatees within 20 ft of the beach, turtles laid eggs at ... Read more

Tropical Winds is a nice quiet spot to enjoy a beautiful beach. The staff was wonderful, very friendly and accommodating. When we travel we travel with our pet cockatoo, so it is nice to find a pet friendly hotel that accommodates more than dogs. Elsie is a delightful young woman and our room was nice. We stayed in a cottage which could use a little updating but was still nice. Soap but no shampoo or conditioner in the bathroom, but the kitchen had everything you would possibly need (even the ...

Was the worst experience I ever encountered in my travel history. My visit was actually 8/14 however it took me this long to recover from such a horrible experience. We checked in for our girls family weekend away and noticed it was warm. The AC unit was broken and never repaired the entire weekend. I was promised it would be fixed ASAP but that never happened. We also had no power because the cottage was not capable of powering an ac unit, tv, etc... The ant situation was buggy as we kept get... Read more

Stayed here this weekend. Our usually spot was booked so we booked here. Very surprised we never heard if before. Great little cottage roomy. Great beach very quiet! They even had little carts to use for carrying stuff to beach. Great neighbor hood. Staff very friendly even help out by letting us check out an hour late. All in all great place

Perfect place for our first time stay on Sanibel Island. The room was relaxing, the beach was beautiful, the price was perfect.....a wonderful time was had by us in June of 2016. Make sure you go to the Island Cow for Breakfast and Doc Fordes was also a great restaurant. Bring your sand bucket and scoop up some of the beautiful shells.

The cottage was clean and comfy but the walk to the beach was quite far. Having asthma kept us from that long walk in the July heat after the first trip down to beach we didn't go back. Also disappointed we didn't get the puppy basket as promised. We went to lighthouse beach instead due to walk to beach. Their pool was nice and refreshing.

I have been visiting the tropical winds Motel for over 50 years! The first time there as a kid in the 60's I shot out of the bathroom when a 4 foot snake crawled out of the bathroom drain. It hasn't been upgraded since I am sorry to say. The air conditioners could be replaced each day for what they charge ! But instead, they are still using the same ones from the 80's...moldy and stinky and loud all night long. Hot nights and loud A/C plus nasty beds that have to be pushed together if you w... Read more

Topical Winds is a great place to stay if you want great service & clean rooms, steps from the beach. The on-duty manager, Elsie is outstanding! She went out of her way to ensure that we had everything we needed. The location is only 15 minutes from downtown Sanibel. We can't wait to go back as this is our new go to vacation spot

If you are looking for a quite beautiful beach this place is on the beach. The cottages are quaint and everyone is friendly. The beds were comfortable and we felt at home. You can rent bikes right there - cheap - like $5 per person. The beach is breathtaking!! You can walk for miles and sometimes not see a person. Loved it!!

Stay in the cottages directly on the beach. Nothing like waking up early in the morning to the sound of the waves. You're just steps away from the best beach I've ever experienced. Stayed for almost three days in July and maybe saw a total of 15 people on the beach total - paradise. So many shells collected by my kids. If you have a dog, make them part of the experience as well. Tropical Winds and the surrounding restaurants are pet friendly, so you'll leave with a lot of great memories wi... Read more

We were pleased to find the cottages were on a private beach since most of the public beaches are congested with people and traffic. We were greeted by a friendly person who immediately gave us tips on places to eat and directed us to the location of the private pool where we could find guest umbrellas, chairs, shovels and toys along with a wagon to drag everything down to the beach. We were with my mom who has a hard time walking and she drove her in a golf cart to the edge of the beach when we... Read more

I love this place is quiet, clean and staff is very friendly. Is 1000 feet from the beach but they have wagons that you can borrow. Also is a pet friendly hotel and you can barely see other dogs or people at the beach.

We were very surprised to find this hotel accepts pets. We arrived and were greeted with a small pet basket including a nice treat for our puppy. However, we were given the "quaint room". It is the smallest room they have. The room was clean so we were very happy with that. There was no where to just it and relax and because the patio was not covered or screened in. There are 2 chairs at a small table in the tiny kitchen but they are not comfortable to just sit and relax. They have a nice... Read more

Booked for2 nights Jul 27-29. Arrived on time, met Elsie. She showed us to room#1. This is the worst place I have ever seen in my life, it was filthy. Black hairs on the bed and pillows, overwhelming smell, don't know what it was. Dirty cupboards, dirty baseboards, hair on floors, hair ball on the bedroom floor, filthy carpet in bedroom. Filthy lamp shades, filthy cushions on furniture, filthy artificial flowers. Asked for full refund which we received, another guest was also complaining, ... Read more

We stayed over Labor Day weekend there. Our first time at this place and we had a good experience. Now, this is a no-frills, very simple place, but it is super close to the beach (we were in #1 and it took us only a couple of minutes to get there) and super quiet day and night. The room was clean and had all we needed in the kitchen plus you get space outside to park your car(s), and a backyard with a charcoal bbq you can of course use. The guys at the front desk were super polite and very helpf... Read more

I stayed Sept 5-9 2016 in motel/beach efficiency #9. It was the same room I had on my first time there in 2015. I enjoyed it as much as the first visit. The motel/beach section is from the 1950's and is very attractive. It's not a luxury property nor is it very large. The cottages are just across the small residential street and looked nice from the outside. #9 was a nice little unit with a shared screened porch, that is divided by a half high divider. Each half of the porch has a fan and a... Read more

1st, this is not the Ritz Carlton. If you are looking for a modern, high end place to stay THIS IS NOT the place!!! If, however, you would like a clean place to stay where you and your pets can enjoy a great beach in relative seclusion this is a great choice!

We stayed here last weekend and had a very enjoyable experience. We had an efficiency apartment (unit #7) near the ocean. The small 1 bedroom studio was clean, updated and comfortable. My 2 small dogs had a nice time too. (Bring their dog beds.) The couple who manages the property are very nice and accommodating. The only downside was the "Red Tide" which brought many dead fish to the beach. But apparently that's everywhere in Sanibel, at least at this time. Overall, I would recommend.

My husband, sister and I had a wonderful stay at Tropical Winds. Our unit was clean and neat and had a full refrigerator, microwave and coffeemaker. Also dishes and flatwear. We didn't take advantage of the oven/range or cooking utensils. The location couldn't be better with private beach access. The two bedrooms were attached but with only one bathroom, one bedroom had to access through the other bedroom to get to the bathroom, the living room had a comfortable couch and chair and a TV too.

These cottages are right on the private beach where amazing seashells wash up on your feet as you stand at the edge of the surf. Piles and piles of shells are located on the beach. It's a sheller's paradise! Cottage was clean and well equipped. Staff were exceptional and very friendly and helpful. Private beach was not at all crowded and peaceful. I would definitely stay here again.

This is our second trip to this location. Quiet old florida cottages - its own beach and never crowded. Excellent for dogs. comfortable and clean - if you are looking for the Ritz then stay there - this is not that - but it is a very nice spot to stay if you enjoy travelling with your best friend and taking them for a swim in the ocean.
