“A nice older hotel, great location.”
Reviewed January 3, 2013

Basically these are older motels from the 60's or older? Next time I will ask to stay at the Shell. At the Seville there are 3 hotels next to each other. These are old. But the PRICE IS GREATand the location is the beach 1 block one way, and the Water Taxi one block to the other. Dave gives very good communication via e-mail etc. The best rooms were the Queens at the Seville, to the right of the office, they had a little kitchenette, coffee pot etc. We didn't have a coffee pot, so we went to our friends room. There is a Starbucks up at the corner tho one block away. No ice machine. Had to walk two blocks to their other establishment to get ice. There were 10 of us and we booked 5 rooms. And each room looked different and in two different buildings next to each other. Except the queen rooms. We booked this hotel because of the Travel Advisory rating, the PRICE, and the LOCATION. Easy check in and check out. Dave even gave us better directions so taxi wouldn't over charge from airport. We left to go on a cruise. We shared "Go" Shuttle for 9 of us to cruise terminal.

Room Tip: If you are a couple ask Dave for the Queen room with a kitchen. Then you'll have a little coffe...

Great price. 100 feet to the beach. Quiet street. Simple nice rooms with microwave and fridge. They'll give you more if you ask. No elevators to hassle. Walk out or down one stairs. An old favorite since 2011.

The hotel offers basic to medium good accommodation. We stayed in a small room with a half walk in closet. Great to have as we would have been swimming in clothes and suitcases without it. Bathroom was in need of a serious upgrade. This however did not affect our stay much. The close proximity to the beach and restaurants as well as a large mall, offering shopping and cinema was nice. You will need a car though as im not sure buses run much and taxis can be expensive in the long run.

What I enjoyed the most about this stay was the manager Dave. Upon check in, he took time to really tell us about things to do, he was interested in us and our holiday, and gave us a very positive experience compared to previous hotels in the states. When he heard we were on our honeymoon he was a bit sad that he had not got us a wedding present. I don't know many managers who would be so genuinely kind, but clearly Dave is a thoughtful, chatty and outgoing person and sometimes as a tourist, that's all you need to have a great holiday!

Thanks for a great time Dave!

Safe travels!

Simple hotel in a quiet environment. Close to the beach and shops. Don't expect to much. It is only to sleep. You can park your car close to the hotel. No facilities for breakfast or dinner but 10 minutes from the hotel you find many restaurants, bars and shops. Small bathroom but you get what you pay for it. Only during springbreak it is too expensive for what you get. This is the main reason I don't go back to Seville hotel during spring break. There are better hotels for less, but not so close to the beach.

I am a relatively low maintenance traveler. My interest is to be in a reasonably priced hotel, which is clean, near the beach and near multiple restaurants and places to have a cocktail/beer. The Seville fully filled my needs and Dave (manager) is an extremely accommodating host. Dave does all that is possible to make your visit enjoyable and successful!

The best thing about this hotel is the location: One block from the beach and one block from the water taxi stop. This is a very old building with uneven floors etc, but our room was clean and reasonably comfortable. There was a dead cockroach behind the toilet, but hey, at least he was dead! The office staff (one guy) was cheerful if somewhat slow. There were bright lights right outside our windows at the back of the building and the curtains were very thin and did nothing to block the light. We laughed when we turned the lights off, as the room was almost as bright as with them on. Overall we were satisfied. We were looking for an inexpensive place for one night close to the beach and water taxi and that is what we got.

This motel is falling apart. Employees are rude and hotel office and rooms smell like there are things growing behind the walls. The rooms and bedding are always damp from poor ventalation and the bed looked and felt like it was 50 years old sagging in the middle. I did not make it here past a couple of nights due to a storm rolling through the area and am glad I left early. DO NOT fall for the discounts they offer for checking in long term. Once you sign they will tell you that you will pay additional utility and cable fees. No pool so they offer visiting the pool at another property they own, Prostitues and drug addicts are sure to be hanging around all of the properties. What a DUMP! Housekeeper was very nice. That's about it. This dump does not deserve to have her as an employee.
