Very clean, well-managed, budget-friendly hotel! Pool and deck area are very well kept, just a few steps to the beach. Rooms are spotless and adequately outfitted with fridge and microwave, hair dryer, iron, board, and toiletries. Older decor, but extremely neat and clean. Great mid-island location, easy walk to restaurants and shops. Will definitely stay again!

We stayed in a room by the pool. The resort is old and dated but clean and comfortable. It is close to all of the bars and restaurants (about 1 mile from times square) and just a block from great food. A grocery store across the street. There is a trolley stop out front. It is not Ocean Front and... More

Was somewhat skeptical when booking and a little unsure as we pulled up to the hotel for the first time. Couldn't have been any happier with the accommodations, location, and hotel management. Management was very helpful restaurant suggestions and directions, and anything else we asked about. Hotel is located steps from beach, walkable to Times Square, and right across the... More

We loved staying a beach shell inn. The units are older but are kept immaculately clean! We also liked the location. It's close enough to all of the restaurants and bars that you can walk to them but far enough that the beach isn't over crowded. The pool is also kept extremely clean. We will definitely stay here again.

Surprised at Trip Advisor reviewers because Trip Advisor has this motel rated so highly. Surprised at the expense because this was the second most expensive motel on our trip; we stayed in Sanibel Island for less the next two nights. This price was close to what we had paid in Key West. Surprised at the roach we saw in our... More

beachshellinn, Management at Beach Shell Inn, responded to this review

After reading your review, we called Truly Nolen (our pest control provider) and had them inspect the room that you stayed in. Fortunately, they found no roaches or evidence of roaches. We take comments very seriously; so, because of your comment, we had them treat all our rooms ahead of schedule. We are surprised and disappointed that you did not... More

Perfect location - about 200 feet from the beach, there is a grocery store (parking lot within site - across and down the street), there are several restaurants within walking distance too. The public library (if you need that) is also within sight (and happens to be wonderful). If you enjoy walks on the beach it's a nice one (just... More

This is a small hotel with A+ service. The rooms are clean and well maintained. The heated pool is large enough for all. Free coffee and newspapers are an added plus. People from all over the world stay here which is enjoyable.

Stayed here for 4 nights and enjoyed. Budget priced for this area. Nice clean rooms with cold AC and friendly service. Great location with private numbered parking space. Very short walk to the beach and close to all the bars and restaurants. We will be back.

Is retro in feel which made it nostalgic for me (like when my family went to Florida beaches in the 60's). Owner' very friendly, and helpful on directions to good restaurants and places of interest. On beachside, but not with Gulf view. Yet just a 50 yard walk to the beach. Overall a very peaceful place.
