But for my three nights at the Beach, it proved to be clean and well cared for. Equipped with a full size refridgerator and microwave, with plates and pots & pans if you want to cook... More

clean beachy motel, 1 block from Times Square & the beach, plenty of parking, arrived early and they went out of their way to get our room ready, allowed us to park while we waited for room and told us to use the pool if we like

Cute little place. It's close to all the Fort Myers Beach happening spots. Clean rooms. Both pools was clean & the perfect temperature. Great place to bring a boat. Can't wait to go back & stay here again.

This was my first stay at this motel and unless something is done about the management , it will be my last. The lady that checked me in on Saturday night was rude and very obnoxious . When I was signing the paperwork she was on her phone texting. I had to ask her what I was signing because she... More

Fort Myers is our home away from home & usually rent a house instead of staying at a resort or hotel/motel, but was just my husband & I this trip so wanted something convenient & within walking distance. I admit I was a little nervous about staying in a motel, especially because it was so cheap I didn't know what... More

We were very happy with our stay at the Shipwreck Hotel. We stayed at the Shipwreck for 5 days along with some other hotels. Wish we booked our whole stay there. We will definitely be back. It's not luxurious but it is very pleasant and clean.

This was our first stay at the Shipwreck Motel in Fort Myers Beach. We stayed at an efficiency apartment, which was cute. We loved the "beach-like" surroundings, which included well-constructed wooden tables covered with tiki umbrellas, palm trees and a canal in the back. The outdoor pool was heated and a pleasure to swim in. For your convenience, you can... More
