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

Loved this place. The owner, Cheryl, was outstanding and always available to help. Great location, close to beaches, restaurants and bars. Would highly recommend. Would definitely stay here again. Topps supermarket across the street was extremely convenient.

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

Excellent service! Far beyond what we expected. Perfect location, very close to the beach, restaurants and bars. We recommend eating breakfast at The heavenly buscuit just a short walk down the road. Clean and nice room. Quiet area, a relaxing place to stay. We will stay here next time we visit Fort Myers Beach!

Love love love this inn. Vintage cuteness plus great location on the beach! Clean rooms, friendly, helpful staff. They even provide beach chairs! The pool is small but refreshing. We would stay here again in a minute.

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
