Just got back from the beach.. Our stay at the Shipwreck was very nice. The room was very clean and Rose the housekeeper did a great job. Everything from the room to the beach to the bay was less than 2 blocks away. The motel is surrrounded by great places to eat and relax all within walking distance.

Looking for a long weekend, booked at the Shipwreck. Its not new, 1950's era I imagine. Centrally located in Ft Meyers Beach. A block from Times Square. Clean, everything worked. Easy walk to the beach, shopping, restaurants. Staff could not have been friendlier. Rose, housekeeper for our room, very attentive and helpful.
