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

I spent two nights at the Beach Shell Inn in early September. I arrived without a reservation but was accommodated as it was early in the day. I loved staying here. The bed was the most comfortable bed I'd ever slept in...really! I commented on this while checking out and was told that they invested in top of the line... More

We stayed during Labor Day weekend and had the one bedroom suite on the second floor, overlooking the pool. Suite was so clean and full of everything we needed for our stay. Front desk team was so welcoming and helpful. It was a short getaway from home and still feeling at home. I would always come back and would recommend... More

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 The resort is small and a little outdated but a short walk tot he beach.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