out sides pretty beat up. But you are walking distance to the beach, resteraunts, U.S.S Lexington etc...Staff was very friendly as well as cleaning lady. Pool is heated kids enjoyed that. And to top it all off you cant beat their prize for being where its located. Overall the room was pretty oldish decor, but we didn't need anything fancy since we practacly just came in to sleep. Don't expect a 5 star room, but do expect good prices!

I booked a room a week in advance, had a slight delay and knew I was going to be late checking in. I called and told the rep that I would be there, just later than I thought. They held the room for me depite my late arrival :). Upon I arrival I was given my keys and made my way to the room. Great room, with a great view, the price was amazing. I stayed within feet of restaurants, walking distance to the USS Lexington. AND best of all I I could literally walk to the beach when I ever I wanted. I will be staying here everytime I visit Corpus! My room had a kitchenette that was a plus, it's not like it was brand new, but it worked!!! Keep in mind this isn't the Omni or Days Inn even, but it was worth every dime and right where I wanted to be...super pleased with my stay and the staff, and the Owner! I do recommend bringing your own pillows..that's about all..seems like all the rooms had a great view!

Made reservation online. Motel was on wide strip of beach. Had newer shuffle board area, fenced in grass and play ground for kids. However, the Sea Shell gives "motels" a bad name. My six year old said it smelled. Kitchenette was straight out of 50s with tin foil under burners. Carpet had visible sand and dust bunnies in corners. Outlets missing covers. Rust in tub. A/c unit in bath/closet was duck taped and disgustingly dirty. Huge clump of hair on it. Visible dirt clumps on bathroom floor. Peeling paint. Deadbolt un sturdy looking. I was literally afraid to sit on the bed. We immediately packed the car and found another hotel south of the bridge. The nicest thing I can say about this motel is that the office manager refunded our 3 night stay when we handed back the key.

We asked for non-smoking smelled like a cigarette factory. Bed spread smelled like beer. Wwent to office he took it and rewashed it for us. The desk clerk was courteous. Did not get a good view as our room were in a corner. Overall I don't think the room was worth the price we paid. Will not stay there again. Also had bugs in my bed.

Room Tip: Check for bugs in bed

Hi there, I apologize for the less than pleasant experience. All of our rooms are non-smoking, and we always request people to smoke outside if they have to. Sometimes people break the rules and it seems that was the case.

During Spring Break, our rates are a bit higher, but they drop down to normal prices after Spring Break is over. We have a pest control company which comes and treats the properly regularly according to schedule, and we chose memory foam beds specifically because bugs are not attracted to this material.

If you change your mind, we would enjoy the opportunity to welcome you back and make sure you have a pleasant experience. Please contact me at seashellinn@yahoo.com if you decide to visit again, we will make it right.

Cheers,
Manager
