Whether you're a large family or a couple looking for a "Right-on-the-Ocean" stay, you'll be delighted with the old-school, New England charm and intimate flavor of the Sea Shell Motel. Pet Friendly! Private Beach! Wonderful staff. Cozy, seaside accommodations. (Great A.C., beds and shower). Close to everything Mid Cape from historic Hyannis to Chatham. Not a large, slick hotel with... More

This was our 3rd year here and we have already booked for next year. It is located on a beautiful, small stretch of private beach and we always book a room that opens to the dune. This is a very basic motel with quaint amenities. There could be some improvements though, to bring it back to the place it once... More

The Sea Shell is my first choice for Cape vacations. I have stayed there about 6 times so far. I always ask for a first floor ocean front room. Sliders open to a small porch area that is a very short stroll to the beach. I love to relax there with a good book. Every time I look up there... More

So we came here right before tourist season started, but I still think this ended up cheaper than any other hotel with an ocean front, (I spent hours looking for an ocean front property, going up and down the shoreline on a map and looking at every hotel). I ended up booking room #25, which I am so glad I... More

We had a 2nd floor room with oceanfront balcony. Amazing pet friendly too. Room was clean and comfy. Beach right out the door. Dogs not allowed on beach summer but plenty places to walk him in area. Staff was friendly and helpful. no pool onsite but we were able to use pool next door that was really nice. Restaurants nearby.... More

Pet friendly is not always easy to find oceanfront. While I travel with my emotional support animal, I tend to not take advantage of that and stay rather low key. Check in was quite easy. The room was clean and indeed ocean front. The private stretch of beach is rather small, but it certainly allowed for good people watching! I... More

Spent a long weekend this past week and have nothing but good to say. A cozy, almost bed and breakfast atmosphere with uniquely decorated rooms. We did not have an ocean front room but still had water views. Very quiet and peaceful at night great. They have a great little area for a nice glass of wine at night overlooking... More

We recently stayed at this motel, and loved it. The staff were very sweet, the room was spacious, and clean. We arrived late in the evening, and went out on the beach to see the moon glistening off the water, and stood there talking until after 3:30 in the morning, with the warm water splahing our feet. The beds were... More

The motel is quite dated but the location is great and sits on a private beach. Was a little hesitant at staying in a pet friendly motel as we are not dog owners. But the motel was very clean, the outside property maintained with plenty of doggie bags hanging around to be used. We stayed in Room 26 with "partial... More

The Sea Shell Motel was charming. The room was larger than I expected. The room was clean and the staff was friendly. Nice beach especially for young children. Many rooms are pet friendly, which is why we chose this motel. Will stay here again next year!
