7.0.Good.
  • 10.0.Exceptional

    Basic but had what we needed.

    As one of the cheaper options in key west, seashell motel is a good option. Don’t expect anything fancy but we got a clean, basic room with an en suite bathroom. We were in a private room so cannot comment on what the shared rooms were like but for a place to sleep, it was exactly what we needed. It’s only a short walk to the southern most point and the south end of Duval street. It you don’t mind waking everything is within a mile or so of the motel. Overall, we were very happy with our stay.

    Would recommend

    First time staying at a hostel. Beds were clean and comfy and all the other guests were nice. Only thing I could complain about is having to pay to use the small fan next to the bunk. $3 every 10 minutes seems a bit ridiculous. Especially being in Florida. Other than that, great stay, great location. Would definitely come back

    A crowded experience

    The rooms are kept clean, the bathroom is also clean. Most of the beds were unoccupied. There is very little space in the shared room. All beds are double. I was at the upper bed. Getting up and down is tricky. The AC is noisy but it does work
