It was the perfect getaway. We made a last minute plan and were pleasantly surprised at the availability at a hotel close to the water. Everyone was very accommodating.

Great Location

I didn't realize the outside door is outside... Like a motel. Other than that the location can't be beat, and the suite with a kitchen is perfect.

Book if you want to be on the beach with convenient lodging, but definitely has a budget, not a "resort" feel.

Shell Island Resort

My wife and I enjoyed our New Year's Eve stay at the Shell Island Resort. Biggest plusses: beautiful beachfront and room comfort. Only negative: the breakfast in the resort restaurant was ordinary at best, particularly for the price. Still, I will probably come back.

Beautiful views

We stayed here over the week of New Year's. Location could not be beat, as were the views from the room (including sunrise on New Year's Day). Room was decent size, furnished nicely enough. The property itself is a bit older and shows as such in a few of the public places. The restaurant on location is very mediocre. Cleaning staff was OK, although not particularly focused on the details, such as sweeping the floor. All in all, I'd say the place was slightly over-priced by 10-15, but certainly an acceptable experience (especially those views!).

Couples Getaway

Great Location right on the beach. Staff was very friendly. There was a wedding going on and the beach was a beautiful spot for it. Front of parking lot grounds were poorly kept ,inside of lobby showed lots of wear. Not sure if it is an ongoing issue or just that weekend but the water from the hotel shower smelled terrible. We asked a member of the staff and they stated it was "'sulfar'" that is used to treat their system. Regardless it was enough that we will not go back.:(

Great location and well equipped room

Nice condo. We were one of only a few staying at the resort but they put us next to the parking garage blocking half our view on the 2nd floor.

Comfortable Suite, Breathtaking Views

My sweetie and I spent a long weekend here for a birthday getaway and couldn't have been more pleased. Our suite was spacious and beautifully furnished; the views and sounds of the ocean made it impossible not to relax. Every staff member we encountered was friendly and accommodating. Our visit was mid-November, so the off-season rates made the experience a bargain, but this place is special: even full-price would be a good value for the location and amenities.

Dining tip: In Hotel

You can't beat the hotel restaurant for breakfast or a quick lunch. It's all reasonably priced and they will package anything you like -- from your morning coffee to a sandwich -- to take with you on a beach walk right outside the door.

Great Weekend Getaway

Wonderful View from room! Located on a Beautiful stretch of Beach (Shell Island). Great location near restaurants and Grocery Stores. We rented bikes from the front desk and had a wonderful bike ride. Only con is the price even during off season...If prices were more affordable during off season, we would be booking a weekend once a month:-)!
