This is a great place. My family and I stay here every year. The Pool and Tiki bar are right off the beach. The Tiki bar offers great food and drink for a good price. Can be a bit noisy at night because of the live music just request a room further away from the pool area.

My sister and I spent three nights at The Sea Shell in mid Sept. The place offers some great deals for this time of year. However, don't book earlier than August. I booked in July and the hotel gave me a hard time saying I couldn't have the third night free since I booked before they offered the special. They... More

The fire alarm went off around 11:45 pm. Soon there was pounding on our door to evacuate. We grabbed some clothes as it was a very cold night. Stood outside for 45 minutes until we could go back in. Yes there was a small fire. This morning checking out I asked if there was a courtesy discount and the woman... More

You are 100% correct. I was out of town when the fire happened. Thankfully no one was hurt and damage was minimal. Apparently a discarded cigarette butt tossed into our landscaping was to blame. I rushed back to Beach Haven arriving at 9am. I immediately informed the front desk staff that we would be offering a $50 courtesy gift card... More

Just returned from a weekend stay at the SeaShell. The location of the hotel was perfect. Just a few steps to the beach. The room itself was pretty basic. Definitely could have been cleaner. I chose a first floor room after reading they were newly renovated. This was not obvious to me in the room I stayed in. The tub... More

Stayed here for a long weekend right after the Labor Day for a wedding. The check in was easy and our room was quaint and clean. The room came with a decent sized fridge and microwave. The bed and pillows were very comfortable, and I loved that they provided make up remover wipes. We were in room 204, and although... More

We went to the bar for happy hour and had two attentive barthenders. The prices were very reasonable and the food we ordered was typical very good bar food. I would definitely go back again. Did not stay at the hotel.

We stayed at the "Shell" in July for four days. Some friends had told us about the place a few months earlier so we thought we would try something new. Usually we rent a house for a week. When we first checked in we were surprised how clean it looked.The desk staff was very polite and helpful.Our room would be... More

My husband and two daughters (4 yrs old and 7 months) just got back from 4 days at the Sea Shell Resort. We had a fabulous time. While I was a little nervous as to the type of crowd we'd see at the pool area because of some comments regarding the Tiki bar I was happy to see so many... More

Our family loves this hidden Jem and the fact that it is open to the public is great. It makes you feel like you are in Florida and can enjoy the Tiki bar and the pool while the beach is right behind you . Only place with real palm trees ! The kids loved the pool. Every one was so... More

Thank you for taking the time to review the Sea Shell. Yes indeed, we are seeking to bring that Florida/Island feel to Beach Haven. In fact the owner of the Sea Shell lives in the Florida Keys in the winter. Each and every year, he brings back all the Florida palm trees you see around the property. We work hard... More
