The Seashell has a clean and good looking property and the catering for the wedding was great, bartenders are quick and attentive. The room was modern and clean but there are drawbacks. Wifi is provided but they don't guarantee coverage to all rooms. The premium ocean front rooms don't get a signal so if I wanted to check email I had to walk down to the lobby with my computer. This is NOT ACCEPTABLE in 2014. They spend the money on motion detector lights to conserve energy but not run an RJ45 wire for a wireless access point? This needs to be rectified as I don't think one should have to leave their room to check email. Also, the oceanfront rooms are not for folks wanting a quiet and relaxing getaway. Expect loud noise all night long, we didn't and as a result had very little sleep. Because of the age of the place you must go outside to get to your room and with luggage and in the chilly off season, a negative. If the music and wifi were addressed it would get a higher score but I'm being generous with this score.
