This place was a dream. Very spacious 2 bed apartment. Very roomy for 4. 2 separate doors. Walkway thro to each other's area. So cosy but separate if needed. Clean comfortable and good Laundry change daily. Guy and Pierre are so very nice. I would recommend this place to anyone. Few steps from beautiful Hollywood beach. Very popular. Loads to do, and fabulous weather. What more could you ask for a wonderful holiday.

Room Tip: Phone guy and Pierre at Shell motel. They have more than one place and would be able to accomodTe am sure.

We went to Hollywood for the first time this December. I was not going to share this experience because it tires me out to write such a bad review but that was before I found out that Guy and Pierre charged our credit card for $250 when we didn't even stay there and now refuse to credit the charge back to us.

We made reservations in the summer to stay here in mid December for 10 days. We were to meet our friends who go to Hollywood every December. They had already made reservations here so we decided we would stay there also. Neither of us had ever stayed here but it looked okay from what we saw on the web. Our friends arrived 10 days before us and said their room was fine. Not fancy but okay. They had a relatively new bedroom suite, and good mattress, a full bathroom with tub and a large walkin closet. So we all assume our room would be comparable. Although Guy had told us the room would be small we were SHOCKED when we entered our room!! It looked like someone's converted garage (please refer to the pictures I'm posting.) We were never told it would be a Murphy bed, only one night stand and a half side table with 2 chairs. And when the bed is down the side table is not usable. The bathroom was super small. Only room for a tiny vanity and the smallest shower!! Also no decor at all and everything was just tired looking.

Now we don't mind small, in fact we ended up having to stay at another local motel one street over for one night in a small room about the same size and loved it. The difference is the other motel room was beautifully appointed.

Had Guy told us it was a Murphy bed I know we would never have made our reservation. We did not stay. Our friends were so embarrassed that they literally ran around the area at 8:30 pm trying to find us another motel to stay at. Which by the way we were very lucky to find anything since it is at the beginning of the season.

We immediately phoned the Guy and/or Pierre (don't remember which one we spoke to since either one can answer) and told them we were very disappointed in the room. We asked if they could move us to a better room but there was nothing available. So we had no choice but to find a better place. They told us where to put the keys and we left. (They do not stay on the property and so just told us where to find the key when we called that evening when we got into town. We have never met them)

To add to the situation we have been charged $250 for this! Guy now says that since he told us the room was small we do not get our deposit back. We explained to him that small wasn't what bothered us. It was because it was a Murphy bed and the room really is just awful. This is one room they don't show anywhere on the web! We also know that they were able to rent out the room. Remember our friends were staying there.

I would never stay here especially since I now know there is an amazing motel one street over for about the same price.

Find yourself in Hollywood Beach, Fl and need a place to stay that is near the beach, a clean and comfortable room with an efficiency, outdoor bbq and near restaurants. This is the place to go. Pierre and Guy are friendly, accommodating and helpful. The motel is well situated and the people who are there are also very friendly. This is THE place to stay. GREAT place. Thanks Pierre and Guy, I will be back!

Shell on the Beach is the Perfect place to stay at the Beach. A two Minute Walk to the ocean, a comfortable bed and a laundry facility and Lounges in the back make your stay awesome. Daily fresh and fluffy towels and nice landlords complete this wonderful place... And the cozy swingchair in the front...

My husband and I stayed at The Shell on the Beach for about a week recently. The motel was very nice. Our room was spacious and had everything that we needed, and our hosts - Peter & Guy were terrific! The only problem that we had was parking. Due to construction nearby, parking was a little scarce because the workers were taking up the parking spots. Once they are finished, which will be soon, that will no longer be a problem. I would highly recommend this motel.
