I would give Beach Shell Inn 5 stars if it was a more luxurious place but it is a 5 Star mid century Florida Motor Court with a great location. The rooms are very clean and the bed was quite comfy. Bath was recently renovated and clean. BSI is located on the beachside of the road and a 20 minute...

Very nice owners and personal . Close to beach and everything else. Beach is absolutely fantastic. Pool clean and kids friendly. We had a great stay all in all. Recommended by us. Breakfast was bought across the street.

Very quaint hotel that is clean and close to the beach. Not fancy, but perfect accommodations. A two minute walk puts you on the white sandy beach that is fantastic. It is a just under a mile from Times Square and San Carlos Blvd. where most of the shops, restaurants and busy activities are located, but that keeps the noise...

This is not a beachfront establishment. No view of the water but only a 2 minute walk and your on the beach. The place is extremely dated, 1970's called, they want their motel back. The double beds were rickety with obviously older spring mattresses. The décor is "vintage." Our TV had blown speakers. Our room was on the bottom floor...

My wife and I like to come here when we have a free day. The place is comfy, near the beach, with a friendly staff. While it's not a high end place, we enjoy the people who stay there as well as the friendly staff. It's a clean, we'll kept get away, which we enjoy.
