We were looking for a cheap room for one night as we were passing through town. We called up the number listed and sure enough they had room available. Very cute and quaint rooms, the grounds are beautiful right on the canal. At first you might be taken back by the front desk located IN the shop, but the rooms... More

Just got back from the beach.. Our stay at the Shipwreck was very nice. The room was very clean and Rose the housekeeper did a great job. Everything from the room to the beach to the bay was less than 2 blocks away. The motel is surrrounded by great places to eat and relax all within walking distance.

Looking for a long weekend, booked at the Shipwreck. Its not new, 1950's era I imagine. Centrally located in Ft Meyers Beach. A block from Times Square. Clean, everything worked. Easy walk to the beach, shopping, restaurants. Staff could not have been friendlier. Rose, housekeeper for our room, very attentive and helpful.
