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 The resort is small and a little outdated but a short walk tot he beach.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

I stayed here for a week and had an excellent time. The price was very cheap, which perhaps isn't surprising for August in Florida. But the value received is excellent. The staff bent over backwards to make people happy; the woman at check-in lent me a beach towel when I told her I didn't have one, and also arranged for... More

Found online. Room was clean and reasonably priced. It's a short walk to the beach and nearby shops & restaurants. Beach chairs, umbrellas, etc were available to use on the beach. I would highly recommend the Beach Shell Inn! I know we will return!

The Beach Shell Hotel was like a trip back in time. Little hotel situated not far but far enough from the busy Times Square area. The beach is a short walk away and offers beautiful white sand and quiet surf. They have beach chairs and beach toys available to use if you'd like. The pool area is the place where... More

Had a one-night getaway with my wife for her birthday.... WHAT WE LIKED: - Clean rooms, good housekeeping - They offered beach chairs to take to the beach - It's one the beach-side of the road, but you do have a couple of minute's walk from their property to the sand - Affordable - Free coffee and newspaper in the...

In looking for an affordable place to stay on the beach I came across this little gem. Although you cannot see the beach you are only steps away. The staff was very helpful and the rooms were nice and clean. Bed very comfortable. A nice pool outside the room. Quiet at night. I would highly recommend this to anyone.

My husband and I wanted to spend some time away from the kids to celebrate our anniversary. However, we didn't want to spend too much money because we had other places planned to go this summer with the kids. When we first arrived there we were a little apprehensive and we thought it was directly ON the beach, but after... More
