I have been staying at the Shipwreck for years. Most the time it is simply to add an extra night or 2 to our vacation. The Shipwreck is certainly not the Ritz, it's older and can clearly use some updating. What the Shipwreck lacks in modern 5 star resorts it clearly makes up for it if you place a value...

Great location just a short walk to the beach and in the middle of all great restaurants like Nervous Nellies! Room was dated but clean. Jaye was very welcoming and accommodating. We really appreciated it!

This motel is about half a block north from the busiest center of action. If you are looking for peace and quiet this is not it. On the other hand you are quick walking distance from a multitude of fun bars, restaurants and shops. And the people watching is pretty good. Kitchenette was better equipped than the website indicated.

This a nice place, nothing fancy but has exactly what you need to stay comfortably while on vacation. Nice grounds and two pools. The back looks over a canal. Close to the beach but far enough to get away from it as well. The staff are all very nice and accommodating. Rose from Housekeeping went especially out of her way...

Visited FMB twice in 3 weeks, this time staying at the Shipwreck. I had viewed at the room before departing from my first trip, and I couldn't wait to get back. Thoughtfully appointed, this is a delightful room. Walking in the front door, you enter the bedroom with a private bathroom off to the right, from there into the full...

We stayed a week at the Shipwreck and had a good time. The staff was very friendly and helpful. "Rose" in housekeeping was very helpful. The location is GREAT even though the rooms are small and older. We had a small kitchen which is very helpful in cutting cost of always eating out. Would stay here again.

Thank you for your detailed review. Many people enjoy being able to cook in their rooms when they are here for several days. We are close to all the restaurants which is convenient but it is always nice to have the option to cook a meal to save some money. We will let Rose know of your nice comments. Thanks...

Most friendly staff i have ever met, extremely accommodating with our crazy flights, and THE BEST LOCATION to visit everything fun and yummy on this island! Paula made sure we had clean rooms and towels and smiled every morning as we struggled thru our morning coffees.
