We were on a motorcycle trip traveling without reservations and pulled into Chincoteague on a Friday night. There were no rooms at the chains or the nicer inns. A lady at the Waterside (I would recommend staying there since she was helpful), helped us secure a room after calling 5 places. She said the Sea Shell had been family owned for years and was a nice property. She was right, it was a nice older motel style property that has been kept up. The room we had was large with two double beds, kitchenette and decent bathroom. It was very clean. I would have driven past this property had it not been recommended. So if you need a place to lay your head and would like a little more room, this is the place. Front desk staff very helpful. Paid $80, good value for Chincoteague. Beds could be more comfortable, but a decent basic stay in you are on a budget. Walking distance to Bill's restaurant...best meal out of 9 days, go there, too. I would consider staying here again on our way through.
