“Great location and value”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

If you love "old Florida" motels then you'll love this one! We stayed Memorial Day Weekend. Fancy its not, but it is in a perfect location - right on Route 41, 5 blocks from 5th Avenue South stores and dining, 1 mile from the beach, 1 hour from Sanibel, 30 minutes from Fort Myers and Marco Island. It was clean and a great value! We stayed in room #8 and the wifi worked perfect. The only cons were the flatscreen TV is a bit small for the room size and bring your own shampoo and conditioner as none is provided.

Room Tip: Rooms 1-11 supposedly are the only ones that get wifi. I had room #8 and it worked just fine. Othe...

This place was cheap and cheerful. You get what you pay for. If you want wifi in your room then ask for rooms 1-11. If you have any other room you will have to go and sit it the 'lanai' off the main road to use it. The rooms we're clean and the bed was big. The best thing about the motel is the location. It's about 5-10 walk to the start of 5th Ave and a 5 min drive to the beach. There are no coffee making facilities which we've had in other motels but there is a fridge and small microwave. Starbucks is just across the road.

Room Tip: We had a room upstairs overlooking the pool to start with. It had no wifi and was a bit nasty, the...

This motel is walking distance from the Historic District of Naples, pleasant, clean room, free wifi, laundry facilities, and under $70 a night. No coffee making facilities, but it's just across the street from Starbucks. A great find in such an expensive town. Recommended.

If you are looking for a good value within walking distance of downtown Naples - this is it. This is an older unit (our dock lock broke and had to be replaced it was so old) with very basic service and a small pool. Beach was about 8 blocks west and the downtown area was 4 blocks south of the motel.

Room Tip: Get a room as far back off the main street as possible - on the west side

We stayed at the seashell in March for two days. If you are looking for a reasonable place without all of the perks this place works! It was so different than most places. We had our own little porch overlooking the pool. The room had a fridge and microwave.nothing new or fancy but We spent very little time in the room so it worked for us. Clean and accommodating.the best part is the location as you can walk to beach . A bit of a hike but the parking at beach is horrible. The place is right in the middle of everything.we would stay there again as it is funky and fun!

Just got back from an 11 night stay and we loved this Florida style motel. We had brand new Beauty Rest mattresses and springs, a new flat screen, newer air conditioner, Direct TV and silence at night. I requested a room upstairs, away from the road, which made it quieter, as most people want to stay by the pool. Booked it on Priceline and only paid $89 per night while the regular price was $119!!! You will not find a cleaner motel for that price at this time of the year in that area. The young lady at the desk was wonderful and very helpful. The only negative was that the door knob was difficult to lock and the maid left it unlocked twice. It's a short walk to the beach (where you have to pay to park), 5th Avenue South and Tin City. You can also walk to Brooks Gourmet Burgers and Hot Dogs which is a terrific, cheap place to get home made food that is to die for. I highly recommend this hotel if you are looking to save money, see the area and do not need a 5 star hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for a room upstairs away from the road....very quiet!
