We wanted to find a hotel early so we could see some of the sites and just called this hotel and reserved a room. When we got there at first site I was a little disappointed at first. When we actually talked to the owners and got in our rooms we were pleasantly surprised!! It was an older hotel but... More

Cheryl and Walt run a wonderful inn just steps from the beach. Had a wonderful time staying here. Reserved parking space for each room, immaculately clean, friendly staff, very comfortable beds, reasonably priced, and room amenities were just what we needed. Our stay could not have been any better. Will be happy to return soon!

The room was small, but big enough for sleeping! The AC worked well and the shower had hot water! The Inn provider beach chairs and beach towels! The Inn is conveniently located close to the beach and local amenities! We had our own parking space. Every room is pool side, but it is small!

Lovely hotel, stayed for 3 nights. Very clean and comfortable and just a short stroll to the beach. Choice of restaurants are about a mile away, nice to walk along the beach to or pick up the trolley bus which stops outside. Great pool and the owners are lovely.

Stayed here one night last summer and had an easy check in. The room was very nice and appeared to have just recently been remodeled with a new large fridge, microwave and large flat screen tv. The bath was retro, but very clean and functioned well. They offer chairs and beach amenities, but it rained the entire day we were... More

Extremely clean and neat place where you walk back past one or two other small places to the beach. The owners are retired folks from up north; very nice. The rooms surround a small pool and there are tables and chairs outside.

If you want the Ritz Carleyon, make a reservation at the Ritz Carleton. If you want a larger than normal accommodation that is clean, steps from the beach & provides excellent customer service, make a reservation at the Beach Shell Inn. Could it use some updating? Sure. Is it clean? Absolutely (I've stayed in plenty of higher end hotels that... More

We traveled to the area with 3 teenage boys for High School Spring Break. We were NOT looking for the party atmosphere, but our boys found plenty to keep their interest, both on the beach and in the town square. Our room was poolside and we could have not been more pleased. I like to think of the décor as... More

This is an older property but very clean and well maintained. One of the owners manned the front desk every day, they were very friendly and helpful. The housekeeping staff were very pleasant and courteous. This is in a quieter area of FMB but if you want to go to the active area (Times Square) Lee-Tran runs a trolley route... More

When we arrived at the Beach Shell Inn, we were greeted by Cheryl who was very kind and friendly. The room and grounds are very clean and so close to the beach. Its also across the street from a grocery store, which is convenient because there is a fridge in the room. Its a little outdated, but its clean so... More
