The owners have a passion for the business, they are very friendly and welcoming. They work hard to maintain the motel to a high standard. The maid Maria is very friendly and went above and beyond to make sure the experience was great.The Russian market down the street had a eat in or carry out buffet that was excellent.

This was our first time at this hidden treasure. We frequent the Hollywood area and we're always looking to try something, somewhere, new. We've driven past this motel on previous occasions and decided to book a night. Here is what we encountered. Well maintained. Cleanliness was immaculate. The room was small, but very up to date with nice furnishings and... More

This motel is extremely clean and the staff is always helpful and friendly. Just ask for items you may need, and if they are available, they will bring them right to your room (i.e. Microwave, dishes, and more). I have stayed here several times, and always check for availability when I am in the area. You will NOT be disappointed!!

I have been to the Shell Motel several times during the past 4 years and I always received the same great service from brothers Pierre and Guy. The rooms are small but very clean and everything is in working condition. There is a small pool and they have some grills outside that you are free to use. The hotel is... More

Arriving at the Shell motel is like arriving at your family. Pierre and Guy are two wonderfull and helpfull guys who make the most effort to assure their guests do feel at home. Every year between Christmas and New Year this is our home base.

This place is pet friendly, great value if you are only looking for a place to sleep. Rooms do not have hair dryer, iron, iron board, coffee pot, microwave, ect.... Very bare minimum room with beds!! "NO" internet access!! We won't stay there ever again. Very outdated and in need of serious renovations!

we found the shell hotel to be VERY CLEAN and AFFORDABLE!. Best for the money. Good location...rooms VERY cozy...service was impeccable, the owners could not of done anything more to make our stay more comfortable. Excellent selections on the TV stations. Only thing I could possibly say negative would be; pool could be warmer and coffee makers in the room... More

This is our third stay at The Shell Motel, Hollywood, Florida and each stay has been a most pleasant experience. The owners, Peter & Guy, go out of their way to accommodate. The rooms are always immaculate as are the grounds, courtyard and pool. Granted, this is not a "resort" but if you are looking for a clean, safe, pleasant... More
