To our caring and thoughtful friends:

Thank you for your patience and support.
We apologize for not reaching out sooner.

Unfortunately, the hurricane caused significant damage to the Inn and a total disruption of staff. As a result, it’s taken us time to get back on our feet and connect with you.

We are working with friends and family to recover all our data and work through the administrative process of refunding all outstanding deposits. We are working in chronological order and our first priority is contacting all of you. Internet and phone lines to the hotel are not restored so we are working remotely. Our email contact has been restored and it is the best line of communication at this point. As soon as our office is restored, we will post a phone number to reach us. 

We are excited to get the rebuilding process started and look forward to updating you with future progress. We don’t have a projected date of reopening but are hopeful to see guests again sometime 2023.

Best wishes,
The Anchor Inn

We’ve stayed here about 10 times over the years. Always welcoming staff. Cute, clean, simple rooms. Absolutely perfect to use as a base for exploring Sanibel.

Marla & Mitch were so accommodating to our early check-in and late checkout. They were both so happy and the room was clean and cozy. We would love to come back and stay with them again!
