I traveled with my 16-year-old daughter, her girlfriend and a couple of my 50-year-old girlfriends. There were five of us in two lower-level rooms. The Conch Shell is nothing fancy; however, the location and staff are exceptional. We were only in our rooms to sleep, so having a 5-star hotel was not necessary. Even the teenage girls were good with...

My husband and I spent the last two weeks of February at the Conch. What a lovely little place, not fancy but neither are we so it was perfect for us. We found it spacious and it had everything we needed. We found the bathroom a little small when we first got there, but it's amazing how soon you get...

Yes, it can be a bit loud, but, it wasn't any louder than the other place I have stayed in downtown San Pedro. Cute little place and very convenient to everything. Rooms were well kept and had everything I needed. Loved the large patio on the top floor as it made it so easy to make lots of new friends....

Heed the warnings about it being noisy! It is directly in front of the ferry terminal, which is very convenient but there is quite a bit of foot traffic. And as someone mentioned Cholos, a locals bar, is right next door. It closes relatively early though so that's not much of a problem. The 5:30 am garbage truck is more...

A group of us spent a week here and loved it! The rooms were nicer than expected. The owner and staff were very helpful. Naturally a hotel facing the beach, water taxi and gas dock with a local favorite bar next door was not the quietest place in town but it was truly a central location. If you are looking...

I've been coming to this hotel for the last three years in a row now. There is no hotel in San Pedro that competes with this one on price & location. The first thing I noticed was the bright fresh paint on the exterior. The salt air combined with the constant breeze can wreak havoc on the paint. New this...

We spent a few nights at the Conch Shell Inn and found the rooms to be clean and affordable. The staff was excellent and owners Joan and Mark went out of their way to accommodate our needs. It was a bit noisy, but when we asked about switching, we were given the opportunity to move to their other location north...

Dear Conch Shell Guest, In reviewing each of the 38 emails we shared I realized you were confirmed originally for upper veranda during the holidays and due to flight difficulties flying standby, were unable to enjoy your stay at that time! Although we have a written cancellation policy we provided 2 of your 5 nights complimentary and waived the fee...
