“Value for money !”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2014

Very near to the American Consulate (walkable distance) , Compared to many hotels around the American Consulate the demand is quite high and this hotel is quite a value for money , not too fancy , simple stay for a 2 nights . We paid close to 7k for 2 days including food when compared to hotels like Palm Grove charging 13k for 2 night . If your visit to Chennai is purely for Visa purpose then staying at Sea Shell makes a lot of sense and Value for money .
Feedback to the hotel : Please paint your walls and do some work on the roof of the rooms , improve your parking space and do some more publicity . Overall quite pleasant and good service . Keep it up !

Although the breakfast was complimentary we could only choose between veg and egg sandwich. There was no buffet. The place was good and arguably neat. Good rooms for the money. The location of the hotel is very convenient as it is close to the beach and the bus stand.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2013

I stayed there from Dec 8-Dec 9. It is an average hotel. The location is good. Walkable distance from the US consulate.

Pros: 24 hour checkin/checkout. Good staff. Good location
Cons: Need maintenance. Rooms are pretty small. The health faucet was leaking and there were no toilet rolls. Was provided one after requesting. Breakfast is just an eyewash. It included either sandwiches or bread toast and tea/coffee.
Sleep was disturbed by the loudspeakers of nearby religious establishments from 4 AM in the morning.

We stayed for Visa purposes. It was in a good location reachable to all possible places. Rooms are not that qualitative but still it is ok and safe to stay . Staff was good enough, rooms are not big enough.

I had booked one room for 2 nights and no extra charges charged. Breakfast was served almost 45 min after order placed. Hospitality was good and almost most of the common needs like toothbrush, shaving kit, soap is provided when you enter the room. Considering it is near to Chennai Railway Central and also near to Egmore and the price is reasonable. Overall, i liked the Sea shell residency and would recommend others to opt for the same. There are two pure Veg hotels one in the same place as the hotel and the other opposite side of the road.
