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

Just stayed 3 nights at the Shipwreck. Last minute plans (ran screaming like my hair was on fire from another place) but they were able to accomadate us. Nice lady at check in (Michelle I think but sorry if I'm mistaken). The room was very small (Room 34?) but it was clean and a place to leave our stuff. Bed... More

I have stayed at the Shipwreck a few times and have never been disappointed. The rooms are clean and the entire staff is friendly and accommodating. The bay view is awesome and although you are close to everything it is very private and peaceful. I recommend this motel to everyone. I am sure that you will not be disappointed either!

A lovely motel right in the heart of Fort Myers Beach in walking distance of everything. The room was clean and the beds very comfortable. Our room looked out on to one of the 2 pools and there is a canal where you can sit and enjoy the water. The beach is all of 2 minutes away We really enjoyed... More

This place was so nice. Housekeeping was great.Rose went out of her way to make this a outstanding visit. Only thing they could do is train check in staff to be a bit friendlier. I visit the store and was treated great even though it was the same place the rude desk clerk was. Gerry treated me as I was... More

We have stayed several times on Fort Myers beach and unfortunately our usual place where we book was unavailable. We looked at nearby hotels and motels and this one looked promising. The only negative thing i will say is our room needed some serious updating. It was 96 during the day and the bedroom had no air conditioner. It was... More

My wife and I stayed here for a weekend get away. The entire hotel is a little older, so we weren't expecting the ritz. The room was clean, good sized, with a full refrigerator and kitchen. The site itself is located in the Times Square area, right near everything and has two pools. More than we could have asked for... More

This was our first stay at the Shipwreck Motel. The location is perfect as it sits within just a short walk of the restaurants, shopping and the beach. Times Square is definitely the place to be.
