First time in the area, at first glance we thought it was a bit sketchy. We rolled in around 10 pm , the area is scary looking , tight one way street and dark. you go into the back entrance to check in. Funky smell in the lobby made me think we made a mistake. Parking was behind another building... More

I gave the hotel 1 more star than I did last time because they seem to have finished all the construction. They still have free parking and free internet. The AC unit in our room did not work unless you got on a chair and changed the controls. The AC units are the loudest AC units I have ever heard,... More

I traveled here with my mother in law and we had a wonderful time! My MIL had difficulty walking due to a recent surgery so we had to stay somewhere that had dining options close by. This fit the bill perfectly! I basically wanted to enjoy the beach, people watch and read. We got room 222 on the 2nd floor... More

We chose Sheldon because of the location. At the moment there are only limited choices (Jimmy Buffet’s Margaritaville is currently under construction next door and other hotels are nowhere near such an active part of the boardwalk). Yes, the views are breathtaking and the boardwalk is active (if you like bars and endless souvenir shops), but in the end it... More

We stayed this past weekend at the Sheldon Hotel (I know it says Hotel Sheldon, but the bill said Sheldon Hotel). The location is great and the outside looks nice with new windows and paint, but that's where it ends. They must be done with the renovation because their construction dumpster was removed from the parking lot while we were... More

We stayed for a weekend and enjoyed everything about the place. Right on the beach you couldn't ask for more. An old Hotel, well updated and taken care of with a super friendly staff. This place is on our list to return again for sure.

Let me start saying that the place where this hotel is, it is superb!!! Just a steps away from beautiful White Sandy beach!! A long boardwalk to just walk around, with lots of places where you can have from a hot dog to filet mignon. Lots of by the sea bars and shopping spots everywhere!! If you are lucky enough... More

Rooms have been recently remodeled and are beautiful. Not much to the hotel, no restaurant/bar, pool, etc. But none of those things are needed. You step out the lobby door and within steps you're on a beautiful beach. There are only 2 rooms with oceanfront balconies, I suggest them. You can't beat the location and price of this hotel!!
