Just returned from spending three nights there - DO NOT GO THERE. It's only benefit is its proximity to the boardwalk/beach - 1/2 block. Pass it bye and go elsewhere. There are plenty of other motels that are just as close to the boardwalk/beach and are kept up better. Management is more concerned about their ice cream business than the... More

The staff was pleasant but the rooms were horrendous. They were outdated and run down. We noticed a lot of sketchy people hanging out around the motel (not sure if they were guest). The door to the room looked like it did not fit properly as there was a large gap between the door and the ground so we took... More

I'm a senior grandma who took her two grandchildren for a mini getaway down the shore. I had booked a room at another motel, but the reservation was lost. I stumbled into the Seashell Motel with two small children , but they were all booked. The two ladies working the desk called around for me, also calling my bank. They... More

lets start with the positive, great location and good air conditioner, the negative... too much to say, my room smells like cigarettes , it had no table , no chairs, no phone, no WiFi, it wasn't completely clean, it had two small beds, one of them sunk down when you sat on it, overall it was too pricey for that...

There was too much smoking going on! The people there smoked on a daily. They would smoke by the pool and by the rooms. I stood there with my husband and 3 children which are not around smokers. The price was decent, it was. Half the time we weren't there. There was no Wi-Fi, no outlets, and no room service.... More

Stayed here out of an issue that arose from our norm. Worst place ever. I read that it's a party spot. They're not lying. We stayed on the (newer) side near the ice cream shop after they gave us the choice of staying near the pool (super pungent smoke smell). The new side we stayed on was nice inside -... More

they are older rooms but very clean, the maid is there every morning to clean. the pool is very clean,the staff members are curtious.and it is very close to the boardwalk. if you like ice cream like i do,it's right nextdoor. the prices for the rooms overnight are very very reasonable. i would vacation here anytime.

Not a bad place to stay. It has a great view but more importantly it is very close to the boardwalk! There is so much to do in Wilwood and on the boardwalk you truly won't care what your hotel room is lkke because you wont be spending alot of time in it.
