If you are visiting southwest Florida in the Fort Myers area consider a visit to the Guest House at Shell Point Retirement Community. This motel is open to the public and is very clean, a good place for the money and very quiet. Nice pool and nice cafe.

So convenient and comfortable! The guest house at Shell Point provides a great place to stay when we visit my mom who is a Shell Point resident. Clean rooms, great pool and affordable. There is a cafe on site, too. We like the proximity to Sanibel, Captiva, and Ding Darling as well.

This quaint, clean, safe, enjoyable, and reasonably priced motel is located within Shell Point Village, a retirement community probably not even a mile from the bridge to Sanibel Island. Most guests therefore have some family, friend, or business in SPV; however, don't overlook this great place to stay for any other reason as well. Accommodations are comfortable and in a... More

Large senior neighborhood just prior to going over the bridge to Sanibel. This property has quiet rooms largely used by those in contemplating a purchase of a unit or those visiting those living here. Mother-in-law has been here 16+ years in a lovely independent living apartment and is now preparing to move to assisted living, so we had more "helpers"... More

The Shell Point Guest House is very conveniently located just a short distance from the Sanibel Island causeway.Since the Guest House is inside the security checkpoint for this gated community, the location was very safe and secure. There is a Publix grocery just a short drive east on Summerlin Road. They had very good Key Lime pie. We bought a... More

Found this place via a Google map search after a fruitless web search for a place to spend one reasonably-priced night in the Fort Myers area. Yes, it is located inside some sort of retirement community which is a little odd, but it is a completely acceptable place to stay; clean, quiet, and in a beautiful setting. We had a... More

Due to airline delay travel issues, we lost our Marriott hotel reservation. But since I have parents who live at Shell Point, they were able to find us a room at the Guest House, that was originally unavailable when travel was being planned months prior. So a tip, keep calling to check on availability even at the last minute. The... More

My husband and I stayed here recently. Here are the pros: the bargain price; the aquatic center; a thoroughly enjoyable walking trail that winds alongside residents' garden plots and an orchid house; great location with easy access to the airport, the outlet mall, and Sanibel; a feeling of safety on the property; a charming gift shop featuring items made by...

The room was ok , there's no fridge or microwave so you have to go out for every meal, that was kind of a drag. The cafe is average. I only had breakfast there and it wasn't anything special. The beds were comfortable and while the room was older looking, it was clean and the girls did a nice job... More
