recently stayed here with my mom and son. when we arrived there was a slight snafu with our reservation that was quickly and generously resolved. Our room was super clean with a place to cook (awesome). We immediately did some horse shoe playing and on one occassion enjoyed the awesome outdoor cooking area for some morning omelets. Very friendly staff... More

This was our first trip to Chincoteague and was a spur of the minute decision so we didn't have reservations. We went for a bite to eat upon arriving and The Sea Shell Motel is what our waitress recommended. It was great. It's a block off Main Street in a residential area. It's 1/2 block to a local grocery store... More

I cannot say enough good things about this Motel. Owners & staff are incredibly friendly and helpful. The room was more than we expected; comfy beds, clean as a whistle, with a "kitchenette" that surpassed expectations. Affordably priced and conveniently situated, too; grocery, restaurants and shops are within a 5 minute stroll. I would not hesitate to recommend this motel,... More

We stayed here the first day the motel opened for the season. The owners are wonderful and couldn't have been more helpful. Had a newly remodeled room. It is really nice. Although the weather wasn't the best, the motel was very nice. Would stay here again

Chincoteague is a very simple place to vacate. The scenery is amazing, the locals are nice and interesting. The restaurants are all good and varied on the island. We have stayed at Sea Shell for many years. It is very affordable, clean, maintained and staff and owners are nice, attentive (only when needed). The island is simple and so is... More

Just saying. The staff was very accommodating. We arrived at the crack of noon (check-in at 3 pm) and as I was trying to explain that I just needed to use their phone (thank you, MetroPCS), we were checked in. The room was more spacious than many "hotels" I've been to, and more importantly - clean. Or appeared so -... More

I booked this last minute for pony penning week and found the rates the best in the area. The room was clean however there was a little invasion of ants in the kitchenette that were a nuisance more than anything. The hot water was not the best but the convenience of the location -- within walking / biking distance to... More

we took a spontaneous trip and called about availability for two days, we got the last room for the weekend. This place is very clean, comfortable and affordable. The staff was very friendly. The grounds are very spread out with plenty of room to sit back and relax. We will definitely return to this motel. Before booking this motel I... More

We stayed at this hotel for Memorial Weekend. It was the worst thing we could have ever done. We had to find a place that would allow us to stay for 2 nights, not 3. So our choices were limited (which was disappointing since we couldn't get off work early enough Friday to get there). We had no hot water... More
