I am not one to right poor reviews on any business. Being part of a family who owns a small business, I understand that people have different experiences, and that it's impossible to please everyone. That being said, I couldn't sit back on this one. My fiancé and I chose the seashell motel based on the great reviews we read here on tripadvisor, but we had a very different experience. We stayed in room 10 and it was simply unclean. As soon as we walked in, we were hit with a powerful odor of bleach, and had to air out the room for an hour for it to dissipate a little. The room was very small, and that would have been fine if it was clean. The bathroom was crawling with small ants which were in the shower, on the walls and all over the sink. There was fuzzy green mold growing on the sink faucet, the toilet was sized for a toddler and the bathroom ceiling fan was falling out of the ceiling. There were no curtains in the room, just old broken blinds, so the lights from the street penetrated the room all night, and we were woken by extreme brightness. The air conditioner was old and very loud, and the bedding just looked and felt old and not the cleanest. I have never written a poor review on a business in my life, but after paying $119 for this experience, I want to urge others to keep looking, or take a look at a room before booking. We were thinking that we may have ended up with a lower valued room...there were rooms up on a balcony that may have been nicer. We will not stay here again.
