Small pool. Few amenities. Small and dated rooms. However, super nice staff, real cozy place, and within an arm's reach of the beach and a wide choice of terrific restaurants. A view of canals, palm trees, and gorgeous sunsets. Can't ask for more than that! I appreciated the diligence, honesty, and consideration of housekeeper Nuria who found my treasured necklace...

They were doing some remodeling, but that did not keep us from enjoying our week. Very attentive staff. Will go back. Plenty of eating spots near, and just a short walk to the beach. Just look for the Shipwreck Store, as the checkin is in there.

We arrived by boat and upon our arrival check in was simple and quick. Staff is friendly and inviting. Our room wasn't quite ready because we arrived early but once they knew we were there it was ready in about 30-40 mins. The housekeeper did an excellent job, the room was clean and tidy and she even returned before the... More

The room was perfect for our needs. So close to everything that we never got back in our car for the entire trip. We enjoyed the pool and the dock. Would definitely stay here every time we are in town. Shelly was so helpful with everything! She made our stay even more enjoyable!

I am absolutely in love with this motel. They are the most friendly people and Jaye is heaven sent. We had to be moved out of our original room due to water issues. They more than made up for the inconvenience. My family and I were upgraded to a beautiful beach house overlooking the water. I was in awe. It... More

The motel has a great location with an excellent boat dock. Close walking distance to restaurants, the beach, and the inter-coastal waterway. Not very fancy, but economically priced and close to the heart of FMB. Debbie was very helpful during check in.

We are so happy that we decided to stay here at the Shipwreck! The property is located in the heart of the beach district...with the beach and many restaurants within walking distance.

I never stay anywhere else since I found this place. the rooms are bright and clean with a beachy decor. The staff is awesome, friendly, helpful and always accessible. The location is perfect right in the heart of times square. The room rates are reasonable. Jaye is awesome, very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable.
