Worst hotel experience of my life. Children left in tears. Room over night club. Impossible to sleep. Walls and bed shook. Owner completely unwilling to make accommodation despite reasonable suggestion that my family cram into the other of our two rooms for the night and he refund the price of the uninhabitable room, saying, "why would I give up the...

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

After staying at Sea Shell a year ago, I returned with my boyfriend for a pre-summer getaway. This hotel is not only located perfectly but since my stay, they made updates to the bathrooms and bedrooms. Though there was a wedding Sunday night, Monday was very quiet and we loved the happy hour acoustic music! He absolutely loved it and... More

Dear Bella, Thank you so much for taking the time to review the Sea Shell. It means a great deal to us when our customers notice the effort and love that has gone into rebuilding the Sea Shell, since Super Storm Sandy. See you next summer.

The Sea Shell is so much fun! We stayed here in early July 2014 and just had the best time ever! It is a lively resort with live music everyday, great food, direct beach access and just about the friendliest staff we have ever experienced. Book your vacation here immediately!

We enjoyed our stay at the Sea Shell last summer. Right on the beach and close to restaurants. This is a very lively beach resort. They have tiki bar parties, a night club on Saturday nights, outdoor bars etc. There's usually live music by the pool. We liked hanging out by the lime green Adirondack chairs next to the beach....

Hi Sea Shell! Jamie Ettinger (Susco) here! I wanted to thank you for a great time and a very nice, accommodating experience. It's weird coming back to a place that was always known as my home. I know my father would say the same. At most places we once knew, it's very awkward to visit, but at the Shell, that... More

I went to the sea shell tiki bar after spending a few hours at the beach and I love it there! The drinks are a bit pricey but are delicious and thankfully, they are not cheap with the alcohol. I also had the fried calamari which is so good. Next visit at LBI I will be staying at the sea... More

My friend and I went to the Saturday afternoon pool party and we found it perfect. Nice views with Palm trees and all and we both had great fish tacos. We'd go back in a heartbeat! There were diverse types of people from age differences to couples to families to singles and we felt comfortable there.
