Found this place via a Google map search after a fruitless web search for a place to spend one reasonably-priced night in the Fort Myers area. Yes, it is located inside some sort of retirement community which is a little odd, but it is a completely acceptable place to stay; clean, quiet, and in a beautiful setting. We had a... More

Due to airline delay travel issues, we lost our Marriott hotel reservation. But since I have parents who live at Shell Point, they were able to find us a room at the Guest House, that was originally unavailable when travel was being planned months prior. So a tip, keep calling to check on availability even at the last minute. The... More

My husband and I stayed here recently. Here are the pros: the bargain price; the aquatic center; a thoroughly enjoyable walking trail that winds alongside residents' garden plots and an orchid house; great location with easy access to the airport, the outlet mall, and Sanibel; a feeling of safety on the property; a charming gift shop featuring items made by...

The room was ok , there's no fridge or microwave so you have to go out for every meal, that was kind of a drag. The cafe is average. I only had breakfast there and it wasn't anything special. The beds were comfortable and while the room was older looking, it was clean and the girls did a nice job... More

And HONEST.!!!!!!!!!!O yes....I had left a very personal, and VERY expensive piece of jewelry in one of the rooms on a recent stay. Susan, whom I can't thank enough, located... More

The hotel has been updated but is still rather modest but very reasonable. Shell Point is very nice and safe. The new pool complex is 5* spectacular and very large with a large pool that has swimming lanes in half and another medium pool that seems warmer. Also a hot tub. There is a cafe for breakfast and lunch and... More

Rooms and resort are clean and safe! Wonderful amenities and wonder people are all around to have conversation with or seal away to a quiet place and relax near the water. Breakfast shop right around the corner from the room made morning coffee great, My kids loved it too!

We stayed here years ago and it felt older and dated. It is apparent that they are spending a lot of time and money on updates and it is now quite nice..!! The use of the recently updated pools is a big plus. (They are only open I think from dawn to dusk)... Since it is a retirement community, I... More

on a recent trip to visit my granddaughter, a student at FGCU, I found all the nearby hotels filled and seasonal rates through the roof. I checked on Trip Advisor to find another convenient place to stay for one night and found Shell Point Guest House. I was leary since the word guest house/cottage always brings up images of old...

Nice very large room with access to the outside, great beds and pillows, great lighting. Very quiet setting. Unique location near Ft Myers Beach and Sanibel and Captiva Islands. Property is well maintained, beautiful pool and walking paths all around. Nice cycling trails. No fridge or microwave. Very friendly reception. Gated community makes you feel very safe.
