What a find, if your looking for small and VERY friendly, this is the place. An older property but extremely clean and well maintained. Cheryl the owner was wonderful, and couldn't do enough to make our stay memorable. It's location, coud'nt be closer to a lovely quiet part of the beach. Beach towels, chairs,umbrellas, all available at no charge, and free parking. Couldn't have been better, just wish we had had more time to stay here on our recent trip to Florida.

the reception was very friendly and helpfull and there is private parking for the hotel guests, good location to visit the pier of Fort Myers and the see is only a few steps away. Rooms are of a good size and clean, the only thing i would change are the keys to the door(or the doorlocks). Our door could only be locked manualy from the inside so if you forgot the key inside you locked yourself out, but thats the only remark i can give on this hotel

We were happy to see this motel was very very clean, bed was very comfortable. The woman who checked us in was extremely nice and helpful. This a small, clean and comfy motel. Although it is not directly on the beach, it's just steps away.

Little place that isn't very eye catching at first.Very clean rooms,with a courteous staff,for a good value for your money.You can't go wrong.I have to girls so I'm always looking out for the best for them.This little place I highly recommend for the family.Theres plenty of dining in the area,
but for those that like to eat at home, the rooms have kitchens with a topps supermarket within walking distance to buy your groceries.

This was a great place to stay. Just steps from the beach! There were many places within walking distance incuding a grocery store across the street. We walked the beach every day. It was a mile down the beach or street to get to Times Square and the fishing pier. The inn was veery clean and well maintained. Glenda was a great help. She checked us in quickly and told us about places to eat. THe owners were very visable and always made a point to say hello. They quickly took care of any problems that occured! We would stay here again with out hesitation. :)

I had the pleasure of a "quickie" over to Ft Myers Beach this week end..I know the area very well and have stayed typically at two very upscale condos on southern part of the island.This time looking for an economical stay but not compromising..After to some homework I contacted directly Beach Shell Inn. and spoke to co owner Cheryl..She was very pleasant and informative describing her property.She explained it was nice but an older property. Usually an older property especially on the beach can be scary. Not here. the room was well appointed, very clean , flat screen on wall. Clean linens and towels. NO surprises... THe beach is literally a minute walk...a nice private area of the beach. If you need beach bars or.. just walk a few minutes down the beach.The hotel had a fair amount of beach chairs to take and use,, no charge and nice beach towels.The pool area is decent size with a clean .nice pool.The staff very accomodating, location great, beach close and clean.. and a great value ....once again... No Surprises...........we will be back. and will feel very confident recommending this charming motel.........

My husband and I just spent a short weekend at the Beach Shell Inn. This is typically not the style of hotel we stay at - we usually stay at larger hotels. We really enjoyed Beach Shell Inn. We had a basic queen room that was small - but clean and comfortable. The owners manage the daily operations so anything you need they are there to address. The hotel is on a beach access road - so a mere 100 feet and you are on one of the best sections of Ft. Myers Beach. The Inn is conveniently located and in walking distance to restaurants and shops. We will definitely go back again!

Room Tip: Fo a small Inn - they have many different rooms to meet needs of couples or families. We were out a...
