My wife and I stayed here for a little over a week. The accommodations were clean and practical fridge, microwave, etc.). Each room has an outside area and there is an area to barbecue Plenty of parking and a pool. The motel is family friendly.

SeaShell has a hotel and several cottages and houses to rent. While there are places on the island that are newer, I doubt there's any that are cleaner, and I'm sure there's none that match the hospitality of SeaShell. While all hotels will call you "guests", when you're staying at SeaShell you will truly be treated like one. The owners... More

This place is amazing. The service and the friendliness alone is worth staying here. We have been coming to Chincoteague for over 30 years and we will stay no where else other than the Sea Shell. The location is great and really quiet.

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
