Paradise Seashell Motel is in an excellent location to visit Coombs (goats on the roof ice cream and very cool statues), drive to west side of Island, see the amazing sand sculptures, walk on a very nice Boardwalk, and of course, go to the beach. The mini golf next door is owned by Paradise, and you can get the golf... More

Motels have always been something that concerns me. We've booked at some and been scared to take out shoes off. Paradise Seashell is a wonderfully clean hotel with very comfortable beds and lots of space for our family (2 adults and 4 kids). We have a suite with 2 rooms, 3 beds. Also microwave, small fridge and dishes. Would highly... More

We stayed one night, but I wish we could have stayed a little longer. The motel is definetely older, but it is clean and you have everything you need. There five of us and we actually got connecting rooms, which I haven't seen in ages. My husband and I faced the parking lot of the neighbouring hotel and it was... More

What a gem! We stayed for three days and were met with the nicest staff and management. The rooms were spotless, comfortable and easy on the pocket book. We were pleasantly surprised to receive a free round of mini golf next door at Paradise Fun Park when we checked in. The kids had a great time and being next to... More

Our room was clean, beds comfortable and rates reasonable. Continental breakfast and 18-hole mini golf included. Easy walk to sandy beaches, restaurants and town centre. Motel was full, mainly families and quiet the night we were there. Would stay there again.

Hotel was pretty basic but the rates were very reasonable. Not big on staying inside when on a trip so a clean place to sleep is what I need. This motel had probably the most friendly staff I've ever encountered. Will return here whenever in town. Free mini golf, nice staff and a clean room!

I haven't been to this motel but I can certainly tell you that the customer service is disgusting. My son was ill and we missed our ferry. When I called I talked to a lady who said that I would be charged a $30 cancellation fee. Then she passed me off to someone else who said that he would charge... More

Our official cancellation policy is 48 hours notice prior to your date of arrival. Our new staff member who initially answered the call did incorrectly inform you of the cancellation policy, upon your request to cancel due to a late ferry. However in realization of the error, the motel managers addressed the call to clear any confusion. Noting your reservation... More
