Noisy A/C located on headlevel when in bed...Curtains would have been nice to have. Cleaning could have been better.
Very friendly and helpful staff and great location. I would stay there again. Good service. Nice pool.

Friendly and helpful staff. You get what you pay for. Basic needs, could be cleaner. Our shower drain was clogged but they were able to fix it (a day and 2 phone calls after). Great location - half a block from the beach; off of Main Street with nearby food/stores. Overall, it was good enough for what we needed for the price we paid.

The vertical blinds were not as private as they should have been but no big deal. The door looked very old but there was a back up dead bolt which we used.
The pool was nice and warm, and just a few minutes away fro the beach & some good restaurants. The staff was so nice & friendly.

Not what I imagine the online pictures are very misleading. I would not stay there again.
That I was by the beach and the housekeeping.

Why is it called a resort when, basically it is a motel. But it is nice and in a good location.
the shell resort was located to 2 blocks from the beach. facilities were clean, cleaning staff were nice and kept my room clean. It was not far from the Bonnett House one spot on my tourist destinations.

There were a lot of steps to climb so it would be best to stay at ground level but the view was great from the third floor and very private.
The position was great. The staff were friendly and helpful. We enjoyed our stay and would go back if travelling down that way.

The hotel was VERY old and in need of an update, we were told that was scheduled to happen over the summer. Each room of our "Oceanview Penthouse Suite" contained a very rusted and outdated window A/C unit that didn't cool any of the rooms properly. Parking was terrible. The gentleman that was there on Sunday when we checked out was very rude and not accommodating at all to any requests from anyone. We were told along with several other guests that we could leave our vehicles there during the day on Sunday while we attended the festival and he would not even discuss it. But it was the tone that he took with everyone, not being told that they couldn't provide parking. We found paid parking very close to the festival for a small fee so that was fine. He just had no "people skills" and wanted everyone out at 11:00AM. We had requested a late check out and we were told he had to many arrivals on Sunday. I find that very hard to believe considering the price and the location and the fact that the festival was ending Sunday night. Bottom line is that we way OVERPAID for a hotel room that was very uncomfortable and old. I wouldn't have paid more than $89.00 per night had I known what I was going to walk into. I wouldn't recommend this location until they update it and then be aware.
The hotel was very clean, cute at first glance when we arrived. The staff at check in was great, very friendly and helpful, and they were obviously overwhelmed with the amount of visitors due to the Tortuga festival down the street. One female staff member actually moved her car so we could park. She made sure to walk us to our room which was very nice.

They took us to a room that wasn't cleaned. When asked to cancel our other nights the staff was extremely rude and hostile towards us telling us how we were wrong about there facility's. After canceling we received a call later and they double booked us trying to get more money from us and caused two days of dealing with issues. The staff is hard to understand and unwilling to compromise and just overall horrible service. Rooms were trashed and the surrounding area wasn't what was advertised. Highly recommend never staying here, horrivle experience.

Rooms need updating.
Wonderful location and wonderful grounds, like being in a tropical garden. Enjoyed the poolside coffee and meeting other guests in the morning. Nice to have beach towels and chairs for guests. Appreciate the free parking. And finally the manager was great addressing any questions. Would recommend The Shell.

Cleanliness. Older motel. It's what I expected.
