Wife and I decided to give shipwreck a try- happy we did. Close to the pier, restaurants and shops and was impressed the floor were as clean as they were- and nice change compared to the two other places I usually stay in the area.

Located close to many of the FMB favorite attractions. The Beach, Times Square Pier, and our favorite restaurant here The SOB. The trolley stops are also situated conveniently for those who do not have a vehicle here.

We were on an impromptu visit to Ft. Meyers Beach and chose this hotel from the reviews read on TripAdvisor. We were not disappointed, nice little place that is on a lovely property on the water of an inlet. It was within a very short walk of the beach, restaurants and music. It is an older motel, but the rooms... More

The motel is great and could not ask for better people there. The gift shop is one of the best on the island and best prices too. It's in the middle of everything. Two pools and the rooms have that island feel. We just love the Shipwreck. Most of the rooms are off the pools. We live in North Fort... More

We have stayed on Fort Myers Beach several times and have tried other hotels, but this was by far the best stay yet! The room, view and the location were excellant.
