Shell Beach Inn Review

Just 2½ blocks from the beach, this basic but cozy motor court is a great bargain for the area. Choose from king, queen, or two-bedded rooms; all have European country-style furnishings and floral details painted on the walls and ceilings.

    Great Value.

    Great bargain for a beautiful location. The room was just the right size, very clean and the mattress (that matters a lot to me) was very comfortable. A nice deck to sit on and enjoy the view. No noise, accepts pets, beautiful landscaping. Great customer service.
