Stayed for the oyster festival. Had to pay for three nights, but only stayed two. Still less expensive than two at the chain hotels. Very clean. They have updated, don't go by the photos on the website. It is nicer! We had the two room efficiency. Even the sofa bed was good. Lots of blankets and pillows. Great experience.

My parents started taking me to Chincoteague sinceI was 6 weeks old. Been going down yearly since and 95% of the time we stay here. The owners treat us like family when we visit and the hotel has everything you need for a good beach trip.

My dad and I have been coming to the Seashell Motel every year for the past three years. The staff is beyond accommodating. We are from New Jersey, a week ago we called the hotel to ask if they were familiar with a nearby fish market. We couldn't recall the name of the place, only landmarks around it, the person... More

Last minute Forth of July weekend trip....most hotels on the island require a three night stay on holiday weekends, luckily the Sea Shell was able to accommodate us for just two nights. I requested a room on the upper floor away from the pool and they gave us exactly that. The room was quiet and clean. The decor is dated... More

We always look forward to staying at the Sea Shell. No matter if you need a room, efficiency or cottage, the level of service remains the same-excellent. As long as we are able to have the choice to stay here, this is where you'll find us! The efficiency had a kitchen area with cook top, microwave, very nice quartz countertops,... More

We went down for the weekend to do some fishing. The hotel was adequate. It was clean and the room was spacious enough for 4 adults. The atmosphere is just plain relaxing. It has a very homey feel. It is a perfect spot for families. The pool is small but felt wonderful on a hot summer afternoon. The staff could... More

We stayed at this motel for 3 nights, and it is not the typical motel! The motel was very clean and very safe. The people at the front desk were very very nice and make you feel at home. It is within walking distance of the town which is perfect for breakfast and dinner! I will definitely be staying here... More

We stayed here last summer and were very impressed. The room, grounds, and pool were very clean. We just had a basic room but the refrigerator and the outdoor summer kitchen allowed us to cook a few of our meals and save a bit of money. One day, we were at the beach all day and although we hung the... More
