Facing the sea in an old-school motel

Facing the sea in an old-school motel

The Shelley Hotel looks every bit like a 1960s beach motel, inviting you to relax wearing nothing but a bathing suit and flip flops.

In Miami, this inshore establishment – Shelley Hotel being located about 200 metres from the beach – looks like the perfect combination of a typically American motel from the 1960s and a movie theatre from the same period. The beige facade, framed in grey and purple, is adorned with the large letters forming the name of the hotel. Inside, from the bedrooms to the bar, everything recalls the sixties, with Art Deco design and furniture. At the help desk, expect a warm welcome: start your stay with complimentary refreshing drinks and a beach bag, setting the tone for what is to come. There is one key word: chill. The staff will loan you beach towels and invite you to keep your flip flops on, whether you go for a swim or decide to sip on a cocktail behind the hotel, on the tropical terrace.
