Went here for a weekend getaway and was very impressed with the location, cleanliness, and staff. The rooms are also equipped with a stove, refrigerator, and microwave. You are within walking distance to all of the restaurants and the beach. I would absolutely recommend this motel to anyone.

For local Floridians in summertime, this place is a great getaway. Rates are fair, the location can't be beat, and everyone working there is helpful. Yes, the place is on the older side, but the facilities are well maintained. It is also nice, sometimes, to stay somewhere that DOES seem like it's from a different era, rather than a modern...

We booked Shipwreck on a whim not really knowing what to expect...but we were pleasantly surprised when we checked into our room. Great location for bars in FMB and great atmosphere. If you are looking for a cheap, fun place to stay this is it!

nice comfortable room with wifi, located in the heart of ft Myers beach area. Nice ambiance, right on the bay-- clean, with decent rates. You have to go inside a store to be able to rent a room so it may be a little difficult to find. People were very nice and helpful. You'll like it.

The Shipwreck Motel is an amazing place to stay if you are not expecting the Ritz. I fully expected an older property. It is. 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 .
