“Nice little place right by the beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2013

We had a wonderful time at the Beach Shell Inn. Cheryl made sure that we had everything we needed, show us great places to go and eat on the island. The hotel is small and cozy, not fancy but clean and we taken care of with a nice pool and only 100 feet to a beautiful white sand beach. Definitely would stay here again.

Beach Shell is a basic motel with wonderful hosts. It is close to the beautiful beach,pool is heated, rooms are clean,with fridge and micro, it not fancy. We had some health issues and Cheryl couldn't have been more accommodating in assisting us. Would recommend this place for the price and location.

Loved the quaint little motel. Thought it was beach front but still close enough to take walks on beach. Loved the location, away from the Time square but close enough to stores and restaurants. Staff very courteous and accomodating.

Yes, an older property. Yes, clean. Yes, Cheryl made us feel welcome. Yes, the beach is just steps away - I wish I had read more carefully because we like to be right on the beach. BUT there was something in the detergent or the bedding that made my friend cough all night. She slept on the couch for 2 nights. Why didn't we say anything? What were they going to do? Wash again in the same stuff?
Overall a nice stay even though we were getting hit by Sandy. Loved the location.
Stay again? Probably not due to not being "right on the beach."

This is an older property but it's clean, the beds are comfortable, and the location is fantastic. Beach Shell Inn is just south of the very busy part of Fort Myers Beach. From the motel, the gorgeous, wide white-sand beach is at most 100 feet away. the rooms are basic but comfortable. There is a microwave and a fridge-freezer in the room. There is free coffee and newspapers available each morning. This is a well run, customer oriented property. I'd definitely stay there again.

Having toured Florida on many occasions from rainy Britain,we have been looking for an ideal location to relax and enjoy this beatiful state. We discovered this small motel and can only thank Cheryl and her staff for making our stay the most enjoyable trip ever.We met wonderful people from numerous countries around the pool and will definitley visit again. Cheryl....thank you.
