      • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service

      OK for the money; could be better maintained.

      The place was mostly as expected; a low cost place for an overnight stay. I chose a bunk in the shared male dorm. The mattress and pillow were both a bit thin, so the bed wasn't too comfortable. I couldn't have stayed there for more than one night. The shared bathroom could have been in a bit better condition, but it was clean enough (aside from the other residents not treating it quite like a shared space).

      • Disliked: Property conditions & facilities

      Poor condition of property. No ac in bathroom. Poor condition of doors and windows fit. Steps and concrete uneven.

      2nd Stay

      Overall decent motel to stay at. Worth the price I paid for the motel room (I did not stay in the hostel section). No loud noise at all, very quiet at night. There is limited parking at Seashell motel; but there is street parking very close by. Location is very good; very close to Duval Street and very walkable to practically any location on the southern section of Key West. This is my 2nd stay here,1st time was in May 2016. The motel is very clean but starting to show its age, mattress felt a worn. The water for the shower took almost ten minutes to heat up. I would stay here again.
