My boyfriend and I were celebrating our 2nd year anniversary and despite the bad weather, all the staff at Pink Shell Hotel made us feel lime a million bucks!!! Check in was a breeze- Mary gave us detailed information about the hotel and all amenities. Denise took the time to recommend best dining options in town, made reservation for us, gave us a late check out, all with an amazing attitude and a big smile. Tom and the valet parking team was always on point and ready to assist. Last but not least, Nick at the Jack’s restaurant (amazing breakfast btw) was beyond what anyone would expect of what is called superb service- WOW!!! We will definitely be back! I’m in the retail and tourism business and I can definitely say that SERVICE doesn’t get any better than what is offered at the Pink Shell. Thank you for an unforgettable experience! Read less

Oct 11, 2019 LexusKim

This place was amazing! Very clean, staff very friendly, great rooms, all Oceanside rooms, wide beach, chairs every day and great breakfast. Great location also. The only negative thing I could say which is very minimal is the bathroom door made a loud squeal when opened and the hair dryer was small and not very good. I am definitely coming back!

Cant say enough about Ranger Rob and the kayak tour at Pinkshell. We learned a ton and had a blast. Best money I've spent my entire vacation. We've been coming to pinkshell for many years and this is by far the best addition to Pinkshell. Cant wait to do it again! Thanks for a great morning!!
