Just got back from a weekend of golf , spring training and beach while staying at the Ship Wreck Inn. My wife and I had an awesome time at this great little hotel.

I'm late providing this review but my family and I (and our friends and their family) stayed for the July 4th holiday last year (2014) and had a blast! The rooms were clean, the staff was friendly, we had a great time in the pool, the grounds were in great shape, and we were able to bring our boat and... More

This is the place to be in the action of Ft Myers Beach. We loved it. It's not a luxury hotel but it's clean, friendly and very affordable. Pleasantly surprised to find it is on a canal with outdoor seating. You can walk to many different restaurants, bars, shops etc. Would definitely stay here again.

Great place to have your boat right in front of your room - easy access to the back water and the Gulf!! Great pools and nice people. Full kitchen and can walk to beach, Pier, restaurants & nightlife. Interior of my room made me feel like I was at my cabin in northern Minnesota. Naughty Pine!

Thank you for your comments. A lot of boaters take this room, because of the dockage right at your door! Convenient and private :) We hope you will come and stay again soon! More

We stayed at Shipwreck Motel for one night, and really enjoyed the place. Unfortunally I was feeling sick the most of the day, but they where kind to give us our room earlier, so I could lay down and rest. I liked the room and the bed :) It's not luxury, but it was exactly what we where looking for!... More

Thank you for taking the time to review our property. It is too bad you weren't feeling well while on vacation, we're glad we were able to accommodate you. Even though our regular check in time is 3:00, oftentimes we are able to get guests in a little earlier. Again, thanks for your review! More

Great Location, the waterfront with the tiki tables & chairs is fantastic. The actual hotel rooms (stayed in two) are in dire need of a total remodel job. Beds were clean, shower head was black, and the floors need to be cleaned. Would not stay again, and it's a shame considering the location. It's over priced for the condition.

We wish you would have brought up the cleaning issues while you were here, we could have taken care of the shower head and the floors right away! As to the condition... More

Stayed in an efficiency, #22. Clean and comfortable for a value priced motel. Great water pressure in shower, plenty of hot water too. Close to restaurants and the road so a little noisy. Decor is very cute, pillows and comforter could stand to be updated. Nice patio and pool right outside the door.

Thank you for you nice review! Did you know that we have another pool and more efficiencies on the other side of our property? Those rooms have a building separating the road from the rooms and pool area. It is quieter on that side! More

This is not a fancy hotel, but we didn't want to pay the cost for a fancy hotel on the beach! It's a cute, old school hotel with a variety of room types. It had everything we needed. The location is in the thick of things and is a really easy stroll to the beach. We spent 6 nights here... More

We stayed overnight at the Shipwreck on our way to the Keys. After driving from Clearwater, we needed to find a place to stay near the ferry for our trip early the the next morning.Honestly I am thankful it was only one night. First I will say this was in a prime location. The inlet it is located on is... More

This little motel is a nice little secret. They are very accommodating and have a wonderful store connected to the motel itself. We like to stay in a separate cottage that they have occasionally available. It was a wonderful experience for my family The staff is top notch and from the area. It's top notch for the value.

Thank you so much for your kind words. It is amazing how many people in a day we hear say "I have been coming here for years, and had no idea you were here". Since you liked The Cottage, you may also like our new 2 bedroom on Third Street! More
