The beach is huge so it is not crowded. The rooms are a nice size for a family of 4. Some of the rooms have been renovated so ask for a updated room. They have a kitchenette with a refrigerator. The living rooms have floor to ceiling windows for beautiful ocean views. They have an outdoor pool with jacuzzi. And an indoor pool for rainy days at the beach. Our room had new furniture, drapes, bathroom, carpet, appliances, even a granite counter top in the kitchen. We stayed in unit 318 and we liked it was close to the parking deck. I also liked that we could have the kids sleeping in the bedroom and we could still be up in the living room or on the small balcony. We will stay there again.

Our reservation was lost and the staff was not pleasant. It was Easter sunday and the restaurant closed at noon. Since we paid for the room on a debit card we could only receive calls. We used our cell phone to call Pizza Hut and had food delivered to our room. The bathroom doors didn't latch closed. The beds were fine. Didn't really care for doing our own dishes. Gift shop wasn't open at all while we were there. Loved the beach and the view. Nasty surprise when the credit card bill came. The card used to make our lost reservation was charged for our stay also!!! Lots of other hotels here. Stay somewhere else.

The resort staff was great - the room older, clean. The hallways are concrete, painted, I am sure due to the excess sand tracking from the beach. The restaraunt was closed for the season, that was an inconvienance we did not expect. Overall is was average. I am assuming gets better as the traffic increases etc... great location - the beach was wonderful...

remodeling left us on concrete hallways and unappealing surroundings with no discount in rates. No room service because the hotel restaurant was almost never open and the menu I saw was very expensive for such an old hasbeen hotel. The room was adequate but not the luxury I had expected. They never released my credit card payment after I paid cash so I was double billed and still trying to settle that. Jacuzi was turned off most of the time we were there. Beach is awesome. Seems like they are short of funds in spite of the high rates.

I visited Shell Island in early October of 2003. The resort has recently opened a new restaurant and the building was in process of being painted when I visited. I stayed in an end unit with had a gorgeous view of the Atlantic, Figure Eight Island and the inlet. If you like water all around you you can't get any better on Wrightsville Beach. The room was a little small but neat and very clean. I would recommend.
