My friends and I stayed here sober would not have to drive back home after we had girl's night out. I would definitely come back. I got a great deal on a room- that was nothing mind blowing but clean, comfortable and well equipped. We were right by the pool which was nice. I loved the dock out back where... More

This being a last minute trip for us, not sure what we would get...we're pleased with the results. We weren't looking for anything fancy so Shipwreck met our needs. It is a bit old (probably a happening place in the past based on its location), but was clean, beds were comfy, on site parking (although we now know a car... More

You check in for the motel at the store on Old San Carlos Blvd. The rooms are located down a cobblestone alley behind the store, opening up to the harbor/canal behind the store. The rooms are in a very cute, quiet area along or near the harbor. Colorfully painted, and furnished "beach-style", it's a very pleasant experience unless you want... More

We were in Fort Myers (our first time) visiting with family. The beach hotels were pretty packed and. $206 a night at the Shipwreck Motel was the best we could do. Our room smelled dank and was sparsely furnished--only one night table, no headboard for the bed. But it's the beach so we bought a scented candle from the honky... More

We stayed at this hotel during the Shrimp festival because everything else was already booked or too expensive. We were quite surprised on how clean it was and the rooms did not smell. The staff was very nice and very accommodating. They held our luggage in a room for us after check out and let us use their pool all... More

Room was nice enough. Two doubles beds and full kitchen with heated pool and very nice seating outside. Restaurants very close by with live entertainment. Shopping nearby too. Beach just a couple blocks away! Perfect location for family and a bit quieter than Estero Blvd. Cons: bed comfort was average. Sheets were thin and stained. Towels were small. Shower filled... More

We were just looking for a place to sleep for a three night stay as we planned to be outside by a pool or on the beach during the day. The hotel is charming, but the rooms are small and very cramped. This is a nice place to visit for a short stay, but if you need the space, this... More

We stayed at Shipwreck for one night over Thanksgiving. The hotel staff was pleasant and accommodating (the room only had one towel upon arrival, but restocked quickly upon my request) . The check-in desk is located inside of the great gift shop. I felt even though the room was small and in need of updating it was a good value... More

We stayed at the Shipwreck Motel during the Fort Myers Beach Pirate Festival. The rooms were clean, the staff accommodating, and the pricing fair. We had a fabulous time, and will be making our reservations for the 2014 Pirate Festival at the Shipwreck Motel!

We have been to FMB numerous times so we knew the location. Decided to try Shipwreck for one night. Room is small, with 4 people we couldn't imagine staying more than one night. Clean, but old bathroom in need of an update. Very friendly staff, and you couldn't ask for a better price or location. We have a feeling that... More
