We took a night out and decided to get a room at the beach. We booked online through a website that hides the property when you book. And this was the hotel selected for about $85 a night. I was a bit disappointing with the booking but when we arrived, I was impressed. First of all the service desk (Scott) was very professional and gave us valuable information about the area and suggested great placed to eat and visit. The rooms are extremely clean, well stocked with microwave and refrigerator, even have a safe box for valuables. Our room was poolside and the beach is steps away. The bathroom was very also clean. For breakfast, coffee is offered to all guests in their outdoor area. Ice machines are available to provide for the guests. We were pleasantly surprised with this little gem- and their amazing service to guests. We will definitely be staying again at this hotel.

Room Tip: There are second floor rooms with little balconies overlooking the pool area.

This is an older hotel, but overall very nice and clean. The bathroom was VERY clean with super-white grout! Linens and towels very nice. Pool and grounds clean, too. The owner at the front desk was available and helpful for any questions we had. There were some very noisy guests after 10pm, and the owner took care of the problem.
Also, there are items that you can borrow, like sand buckets, beach chairs, foam coolers and floats for the pool. :)
There is good, free coffee in the morning and a large grocery store right across the street- so convenient!
The air conditioner was a little noisy, but other than that I have no complaints. Quite a nice place for a low priced hotel. Would stay again.

Beach Shell Inn is an older privately owned Inn/Motel only about 17 units small in size, but big on quality. Hard to find in todays fast paced hundred room chain hotel society. First I have to commend the owner on how clean our room was. Id rate this area 10 out of 10. We stayed this Memorial Day weekend Fort Myers Beach was packed, but what was great is Beach Shell Inn is located on the beach side with beach access. From your room to the beach maybe 300 feet, to the water longer depending on whether or not the tide was in. The Inn is only 1 mile from the Pier and Main downtown area. A nice beach walk if you want to go to the pier and avoid the traffic. Just 2 doors up the beach is a water sports rental station boards jet skies paddle boards etc. Take some change with you as there is an Ice cream cart that roams the beach..
Another nice thing about the Inn is they furnish big thick beach towels, just ask.

Hot coffee is offered in the morning, if you want more, there is a full grocery and liquor store right across from the Inn. And a fridge and micro wave were in our room.

What was also nice is if you wanted a beach chair to take to the beach it was provided along with games floats for the kids and even some mats to lay on. Even a Corn Hole set. Feel a little salty after the beach, they have a nice pool.

All this and it was one of the most affordable stays on the island. Couldn't ask for more

Room Tip: Check on line for room types, you can also book directly on line .P.S. If you go to the grocery store, pick up some mixed fruit and orange juice and a bottle of rum. The Inn furnishes the ice

SUPER FRIENDLY!

My husband considers me a "hotel snob". I consider myself "selective".
Although this an aged hotel, it's comfortable and most importantly Clean. The bathrooms are new with yellow tile, new commode, new tube and new fixtures. We stayed in #21, it was small, but cozy. I liked it. I liked the location, the people, the size. The pool was very clean and although the hotel was fully occupied, there was never more than 2 people in the pool at the same time. If you wanted to socialize you could, if you didn't you didn't feel rude.

An easy walk to the beach, far enough away from the pier to feel like you had the beach to yourself, but close enough that you felt like you were in the action of the square. Location was perfect.

I would definitely return, very charming, well priced and great atmosphere. A simple place in a simple city for this simple couple.

Room Tip: #21 has a double bed and a single bed in it.

This little hidden gem is rather old but very clean and the location is great - only 100 feet from the beach. They have beach chairs and coolers for the beach at no charge. Their pool is the cleanest nicest pool I've seen anywhere. They are friendly and do everything to make your stay pleasant. And its a good value. Don't overlook this place. We would return again.
