We stayed here in the beginning of February. This hotel is what you would expect from a small mom and pop motel.There are larger and smaller rooms. I believe the people that are in the larger rooms with double french doors and balconies or patios are very pleased with the resort. We had a very small room facing the street.... More

We LOVE LOVE this place. Room number 6 has two French doors that open up to the beach. A couple of docks on each side, wading birds. It's not a swim beach but absolutely stunning. A cute old style suite, very clean with an in both areas. And a great shower. Tons of charm and character. A great stop on... More

This is a two part review .... First of all the location is what you would think of when looking for a smaller (not a chain) hotel in the Florida keys.. BEAUTIFUL setting directly on the ocean ... A picturesque Keys-style "mom and pop" hotel in paradise. White sand, Palm trees, hammocks strung between coconut trees, beautiful sunrise, too many... More

If you are traveling to Key West and want some place that is a piece of paradise look no further. We didn't want to pay the high prices in Key West and wanted to enjoy the serenity of the keys and found it here. We stayed in room 10a which is a cute basic king size room. The room is... More

We booked directly with hotel website and picked our room. We got second floor ocean front room. It was perfect and will be back. We got a very decent budget rate for down in the Keys in Feb. We were prepared to bring everything we needed (shampoo, food, hair dryer, coffee). We got a nice clean room with coffee pot,... More

So I booked thru hotels.com and maybe due to the rate I paid I got the smallest room. It was like a studio apt without a kitchen. If I would have known I was getting a room this size I would of looked at other places to stay or possibly pay a little more for a bigger room. We had... More

The Seashell Resort is in Marathon and is a small (12+- units) ocean front property. All the rooms seemed to be different. Ours was 1 bedroom, living room, kitchenette & bathroom. It was very clean, with the best bed we had the whole trip. There is a small dock, but the water is very shallow. You can use the Kayaks... More

This is not a modern or fancy place. It is super clean, private, and relaxing. Our beds were very comfortable and we had the beach and hammocks to ourselves. There was free coffee on the beach for sunrise and a walkway out past the rocks to make swimming easy. We will definitely return!

The price was right, and the description sounded nice so we booked our 7 night stay here. When we arrived we were pleasantly surprised. The location was ideal for us: a little out of the main area and a beautiful setting! Our room basic but had everything we needed and more: microwave, toaster, coffee pot, fridge, and more. Plus, we... More

If you're travelling to the Key West, you're looking for relaxation, privacy, gorgeous views, and a gentle, easy time. This resort is the perfect place for all of that. Sure, the facilities inside aren't perfect, but step outside into the porch and take a seat. It feels like heaven. The location is perfect. The staff there are VERY friendly. (I... More
