I was surprised at how much I enjoyed my stay at the Shelley Hotel. I read reviews that included hotel switching, resort fees (15$), random charges, and loud music. We arrived and they checked us in without any problems, I have been monitoring my account and there was a 6$ charge added although we did not use anything in the room (asked credit card to remove), no resort fee (but we paid 75$ via Airbnb and it was included), and yes, the music was loud but we were so exhausted that it really didn't bother us at all. It's like a mild thumping over the DJ area on the second floor.
There were only 2 of us in the room so the space was perfect. It's small but not microscopic. The bathroom was clean and so was the room. GET IT if you want to be near the beach. I've stayed farther up the strip but this was absolutely worth it.
They hand out towels for the beach and if you are leaving after checkout, you can walk across the street to the Chesterfield Hotel, go downstairs to the women's bathroom, and there is a convenient shower there!
The desk attendants were super helpful and extremely nice. They held our luggage until we left.
Overall, this hotel is a great value especially with the location (LOCATION!). I'd definitely stay here again. Keep in mind that overnight parking is roughly 18$ (7th street garage). So factor that into your cost.
