We stayed for three nights in November and found the Beach Shell Inn to be a very nice small inn with friendly staff (thanks Cheryl!), clean rooms, and just a few steps to a nice beach. The one thing that could have made the stay more fun would have been warmer water and although I puddled, my husband did swim... More

I just spent four days and nights at the beach shell inn with eight frinds and family members. It was a delightful place to stay _ absolutely excellent service, white glove clean rooms, a very clean pool and one minute from the white sandy beach. I love to walk on the beach in the Early AM and was delighted with... More

This is not a new modern property but it is well maintained. It is very CLEAN and everything works well. Not exactly on the beach, but a short walk of less than 30 yards will put you on the beach. If you want room service, resort type atmosphere, this is not the place. This is a small comfortable, friendly well... More

My wife and I got a good airline deal to Fort Myers and we booked Beach Shell Inn for two nights and left the rest of the week open. We hopped down to Key West for a couple days and drove straight back here. We love this place. The inn is family owned and they make you feel right at... More

I spent two nights at the Beach Shell Inn in early September. I arrived without a reservation but was accommodated as it was early in the day. I loved staying here. The bed was the most comfortable bed I'd ever slept in...really! I commented on this while checking out and was told that they invested in top of the line... More

We stayed during Labor Day weekend and had the one bedroom suite on the second floor, overlooking the pool. Suite was so clean and full of everything we needed for our stay. Front desk team was so welcoming and helpful. It was a short getaway from home and still feeling at home. I would always come back and would recommend... More

Everyone here was so nice and so polite. The room was immaculate. The resort is small and a little outdated but a short walk tot he beach. The location is also close to the heart of town and restaurants. Small and cozy but comfortable beds, clean rooms and a flat screen. again the customer service was amazing!!

My husband and I stay at this hotel and loved it! We had a second story balcony that overlooked the pool. It is not directly on the beach but it is very close. The service was great. They had items to borrow such as beach mats, chairs, towels and umbrellas.

We had planned to stay on Ft. Myers Beach for a night to celebrate hitting the big 50 and booked this place online based on a decent price and very good reviews on trip advisor and was not disappointed. Although it's an older Inn, they have it updated nicely with the bathrooms although small having been recently remodeled and the... More
