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 Its a little outdated, but its clean so...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

There are many good things to say about this motel - great proximity to the wonderful Fort Myers beach, friendly and very responsive staff, excellent water pressure and plenty of hot water in the shower, free newspapers and coffee, firm mattresses, small in-room safe with key lock, good TV and wifi reception, and an assigned parking space. Children and their... More

Thank you for your many positive comments regarding our Inn. We just installed a new fence. Unfortunately, because of our high occupancy rate, we had to delay the installation of our pavers and landscaping. Once the installation of our pavers and landscaping is completed, we feel sure that you will agree that we will be very attractive. We do not... More

Wonderful location to the beach, restaurants, etc. Super clean, updated rooms. Nice size refrigerator. Cheryl, the owner was very gracious and helpful! Can't wait to come back here. Well kept! Nice that they have beach chairs, umbrellas, etc. available for use.

We really enjoyed our recent stay. It's an older motel but nicely updated. The rooms are spotless. We had a microwave & mini fridge. Very short walk to the beach, grocery store & liquor store directly across the street. Also a short walk to downtown. Would definitely recommend this for people who love the beach and want reasonably priced accommodations.... More

Old school motel with a great deal of charm and excellent customer service. We stayed a few nights for a baseball tournament and booked last minute so we kind of had to settle for what was available. Our room was super small for the 3 of us....but hey....that is what happens when you don't plan. Would love to return and... More

This was a last minute trip and we were extremely pleased with our decision to stay here. Room was so clean and fresh. Best part was the proximity to the beach and all the toys needed for the beach. Pool was heated and very clean. Coffee at the pool every morning was a real bonus along with the friendly staff.... More
