Seashell Beach Resort
Ranked #10 of 17 Hotels in Marathon
Reviewed 5 September 2017

Stayed here to make a day trip to Key West and experience the Seven Mile Bridge. The staff is eager to help and the oceanfront is clean and beautiful, As with all of the Keys do not expect a sand beach, waves or swimming, but it would be a good place to do some wade fishing, or kayaking. You could just relax in the chairs they provide or nap in the hammock. The pool area looked nice but we did not try it. Or only complaint and the reason for "Very Good" vs "Excellent" rating is if you have a room near Hiway 1 like we did the traffic noise is noticable and constant. It did not keep us awake but is annoying if you are just hanging out. Our friends had a waterfront room and loved the place. We would stay here again.

Room Tip: Request a waterfront room or at least away from the highway

It was a surprise for us on this hotel . We love it because the scenery is so beautiful that a 5 stars hotel canr even even get close . We arrived late in the night from Key West and the manager is waiting for us at the door . The room is OK and all works . The surprise is in the morning when we wake up and found that we are in paradise like Hawaii . We ended up spent 2 hours taking photo and you can see it yourself here . I definitely will stay here again next trip

Room Tip: Ask for room that face the ocean

I gave this place a 4 not because the room is so nice but because the location is amazing. We arrived and the keys were left for us so we could get into our room.

The room was clean but its nothing fancy. It is plenty big and has a kitchen and also had a sofa. My only real issue with the room was the tiny tv. Come on guys, you can do better than a 19 inch.

The bathroom had plenty of towels and stuff and this was one the only place on our trip, I actually got to take a bath.

We had a full size fridge and a small stove in the kitchen however they could stand to do some work on the dishes. We had two forks.....and the pan was lop sided.

It is beach front but the water is not the type you can swim in which we knew. Most of the keys is this way. We did get in the pool and it was spotless.

We really enjoyed our stay here and sat outside for the longest looking at the stars and the sky and the water. The views are amazing.

Its not fancy but it is clean and you will like staying here.

My child and I stayed for one night and we had an enjoyable stay. Had two queen beds, second floor, with direct ocean view. Room was clean, bathroom was small, water pressure was good, and there is a kayak you can check out from the front desk. You cannot swim in the ocean here, there is no beach leading to the water. It's shallow, and you can launch a kayak from the small ramp, but don't expect a beach. There is a row of plastic beach chairs and loungers by the water. The dock on the north end was closed due to damage but there is another on the south side. Pool is crazy small. I would stay here again anytime. No road noise, just the hum of the AC unit.

This hotel was quiet and definitely a hidden gem. The room had all of the amenities we needed and it was clean.

You are not able to swim here but there are state parks all over the place. This was a great place to relax in the evening while swinging in a hammock and feeling the breeze from the Atlantic. The staff was very friendly.

It could use some updating as it is definitely an older Resort. We would return.
