Staff was very nice. The food was pretty good. The Pool and beach acess was great! The rooms were a bit small with the TV facing one side of the room, next to only one of our two beds, a little odd. A lot of sand flies, even in the rooms. I know that the flies just come in the... More

This hotel and location reminds me of "the notebook" The hotel is small, wicker decor in the rooms, nice bathroom, water pressure a bit low, there is actually in the room but it's a wall unit and made lots of gurgling noises. I thought it was our Ac that had a problem but I went outside and realized it was... More

First the good. Nicely renovated. Not exactly first rate construction (door knob incorrect on bathroom door, room door insanely crooked in its frame, etc ) but still, clean, new, and comfortable rooms. Housekeeping was great. All staff was actually very friendly. Rooms include beach passes and beach towels - very nice. The restaurants are solid. Not gourmet or earth shattering,... More

Thank you for noticing all of our positive changes. We are very proud of our total transformation since Hurricane Sandy, and the reviews have been great. You are certainly correct, Long Beach Island has a new and different ocean view. The ocean is still there, you just have to take a little walk to see it. Not our idea, but... More

This was our 4th year staying at the Sea Shell. The rooms have all been remodeled and are super clean. The food is delicious whether you eat inside or out and the cocktails are pretty great too. There is often live music and usually ample parking although you may have to wait for the beach crowd to leave for the... More

Fun place with great food. Great for meeting for drinks, which you can do outside, if desired. Had the Alaskan King Crab - very good. Can be noisy, depending on when you go, as the inside seating is quite open and large groups are not segregated from smaller ones, so if you want an intimate dinner, try going early, mid-week...

This is one stop we HAVE to make any time we are on the island. Great atmosphere, wonderful entertainment, and delicious food. If they are playing, DO check out Shorty Long and The Jersey Horns - they are fantastic and very entertaining. The fish tacos, and sushi were amazing. The shrimp in the shrimp cocktail were enormous, and very good.

We have been visiting the Sea Shell every summer for years. They continue to update and improve the property each year. My last trip over the weekend was with my friends from high school along with our families(22 of us). We had a great time as always and can't say enough good things about this resort.

I was visiting friends on the island and needed a place to stay overnight. The room was clean, the hotel was located close to where my friends were staying. The price was fair and the staff was very nice.

Hey all!! We booked this place months ago. I herd it was a great place. And I was sceptic. I have read all the reviews good and bad through the months.

The room and location (steps to the beach) were great. However, the pool area was overrun and swarming with mostly kids! The hotel allows outside visitors to use the pool (even though signs are clearly posted stating the pool is for guests only) but not enforced at all. The bar and restaurant adjoins the pool so many come for a... More

Thank you for your comments. We try to address all our guests concerns, so that we can provide a better experience for everyone. We heard you and although it might seem like the pool is overrun, most days we have in excess of 150 guests on property, usually at least half are children. More
