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. At first it seemed that the ownership was never on the customers side and always made excuses. When people made bad comments about this hotel. Well, here is my... More

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

The hotel was completely renovated and beautifully done since hurricane sandy. The rooms are lovely with upgraded beds and nice linens and pillows. Bathroom was also beautiful with granite tile and a spacious shower. Definitely one of the best resorts in beach haven, and walking distance to all the attractions. The only disappointment is they had to raise the dunes... More

We actually went there and stayed for a wedding. The wedding was fabulous and the accommodations were superior and so is the staff. A+++* we are looking forward to vacationing there next year so we recommend this place highly. Convenient to other restaurants and bars, however, everything is in-site so no need to be concerned. Loved it!

From the time you check on until that moment your life forces you to leave, you will be treated with the utmost courtesy. Every one I've ever dealt with at the shell has been polite and professional. Although my favorite spot at the shell is the tiki bar, the rooms resteraunt and pool put this place over the top.

Every time we needed to drive our car anywhere, we spent OVER 45 minutes looking for a parking space in the lot!! We were told because they have a public restaurant and bar, they do not enforce...

I am sorry that you were disappointed in certain aspects of your stay.

I was so looking forward to our 4 day weekend in LBI with all of our extended cousins. All I wanted to do during the day was sit by the pool and relax. This is virtually impossible to do at the Sea Shell for a number of reasons. First, the pool deck is almost non-existent. There are only a handful... More

We have been very fortunate to be able to go the the resort every spring. The Sea Shell staff is very friendly and make you feel extremely comfortable. Ocean view rooms are the best! it is located in walking distance to almost everything you need. Pool and bar area along with amazing palm tree make a beautiful area.
