The Sea Shell Motel was charming. The room was larger than I expected. The room was clean and the staff was friendly. Nice beach especially for young children. Many rooms are pet friendly, which is why we chose this motel. Will stay here again next year!

We had a 1st floor room with a walk-out patio right onto the sea grass that led to a beautful beach. The beach was raked very early in the morning and the water was clear and warm. Plenty of lounge chairs, anti-gravity chairs and side tables to use. The room was average but clean. It came with a microwave and... More

We've been coming to the Seashell Motel for about 20 years now. We have loved it up to the past couple years. Since the new owner has come in, my family (husband and two kids) have noticed that the seashell is going on a downward spiral. Nothing is updated, the room is ratty, the toilet didn't even work, there were... More

Spent a few days around the 4th of July at the Sea Shell Motel. My wife and I found it to be a very homey, welcoming place. It's unpretentious and quaint, unlike the "vanilla" motels now seemly popping up everywhere. Although we did not have an ocean view room, the beach was literally 25 steps away! The staff was very...

Small but really nice hotel with private beach. Good size rooms with fridge and microwave. Decent continental breakfast every morning. If possible I suggest to go for the ocean view rooms. Those are very private and I love to hear the sound of the ocean.

I understand that this is right on the beach and previous reviewers commented on that being the main draw. However, if you take one of the rooms that walk right out to the beach, beware that the rooms can get wet. We arrived the day after a storm, and the carpeting and even the linoleum by the entrance was damp.... More

We could not find a decent place to stay on the beach. We found this Motel and they allowed pets and we now love it there. We had no reservation so we were lucky to get a room that was Ocean View and walk out to the private beach. Rooms were clean and spacious enough for our little dog and... More

The Sea Shell is our favorite Cape Cod hotel because of its location. It is right on Nantucket Sound and in a very convenient place, located near good restaurants, breakfast places and shops. It is also mid-cape making travel anywhere on the cape easy. As for the motel, all ocean front rooms are nice but room 31(a 2 bedroom suite... More

We stumbled upon this lovely motel during a weekend away to Dennisport. It was so lovely! We got a large suite that had an ocean view. The decor was dated - think of your grandmother's decor from the 1960's. BUT - very clean and accommodating to our family of 5. Our room was a 3 room suite (room 10). Balcony... More
