Bottom Line

A 10-minute drive from Sanibel Island, Residence Inn Fort Myers Sanibel offers good value to guests not set on a beachfront location. The 127 spacious rooms at this mid-range chain property have kitchens with full refrigerators, stove tops, and dishwashers. A hot buffet breakfast is included in the room rate, and there’s an outdoor pool and hot tub. Other outdoor amenities include a tennis court, a basketball court, a barbecue area, and fire pit. While the hotel has no full restaurant, it hosts social events with food and drinks a few nights a week. Travelers intent on a beachfront property could consider Wyndham Garden Fort Myers Beach, a comparable property on a white, sandy strip of sand.

Oyster Hotel Review


Chain hotel next to a natural reserve 

With its peach-tones and square windows, the Residence Inn Fort Myers Sanibel resembles other properties in the chain. Lime-green couches with colorful pillows brighten up the lobby, where guests, who are mostly leisure travelers, can serve themselves from a cooler of fruit-infused water. The breakfast room has large windows but dated decor, including magenta coffee tables and mint-green chairs that show some wear and tear. The hotel borders acres of grass, scrub, and water -- a lovely natural backdrop to the outdoor pool and patio, where guests gather on couches and chairs around the fire pit. 


Across from an outlet mall, and a short drive to Sanibel Island

The hotel is located in a development that includes a Publix supermarket and a handful of restaurants. There’s also a Tanger outlet mall across the street. It's on the road leading to Sanibel Island, which is a 10-minute drive away. Fort Myers Beach can be reached within a 15-minute drive, and Southwest Florida International Airport is about a half-hour drive. 


Spacious rooms with dark-wood furniture and kitchens

The 127 rooms at the Residence Inn Fort Myers Sanibel are homey, with black-framed pictures on walls and wood shelves that hold random knickknacks. Kitchens, with tile floors, red walls, and light-wood cabinets include full refrigerators, stove-tops, microwaves, and dishwashers, along with cookware, dishware, coffeemakers, and toasters. All units have free Wi-Fi and small dining tables, but living room areas, with red, clunky sofabeds and flat-screen TVs, look dated, and some, downright cramped. Bathrooms are basic, with shower/tub combos bold white-and-magenta striped curtains, granite countertops, and Paul Mitchell toiletries. 


Free hot breakfast buffet, outdoor pool, and tennis and basketball court

The Residence Inn Fort Myers Sanibel serves a hot breakfast buffet, which is included in the room rate, and hosts social events a few nights a week with free wine and beer, and local food-truck fare or grilled dishes. There’s an outdoor pool area with a whirlpool and lounge chairs, and barbecue grills are available for outdoor cooking. The hotel has a fitness center with a few cardio machines and free weights, and an outdoor tennis and basketball court. The lobby has a small, 24-hour pantry that sells snacks and drinks. There's a meeting space that accommodates up to 75 people and an Internet corner with two computers available for guests' use. Wi-Fi is free throughout the property. The hotel allows pets, and parking is free.
