Simply delightful!

We stayed here for the 3 nights of our sojourn in Atlanta, and that made our visit a thorough delight. Debbie & Ed are a most engaging couple and made every effort to make us feel at home and meet our needs as tourists in all respects. We knew we were in good hands from the start. They keep their B&B in really top shape, and the breakfasts were truly a great start to every day! Also, the lovely neighborhood happens to be very convenient to fine restaurants, major sights and attractions, as well as urban transport connections. If you want to make the most of your Atlanta visit, a stay at the Shellmont is a must! Should we ever return to Atlanta, we will certainly stay again at the Shellmont. &B, Fairfax, VA

We absolutely loved our stay at Shellmont Inn. Not only did we have a lovely room/bathroom but the extra incentives such as warm cookies, truffles and anything we might possibly want/need was awesome. The home was very comfortable and welcoming during our stay and the innkeepers were accomodating and provided us with all that we needed. I would definately stay there again and recommend it to others.

Midtown Delight

My wife and I have made the Shellmont our destination Inn of choice for our frequent trips to Atlanta. Every stay over the last two years has been wonderful and we often recommend the Inn to our frieds. Being located in midtown, it provides a very short walk to events at both Georgia Tech and Piedmont Park.

Outstanding service, delicious food and exceptionally clean!

We have stayed at various B&B's over the years but this was our first time at the Shellmont Inn. Overall we enjoyed our 3 night stay. It's location is just a short walk to the MARTA train as well as many of the tourist attractions.

Relaxing retreat

Innkeepers Debbie & Ed helped to make our stay in Atlanta fantastic. The Inn is beautifully restored and our room was comfortable & modern in the context of the historically important house. Breakfasts were lovely & delicious. Debbie & Ed were very helpful in assisting us with making the most of our visit.

Best B&B experience

5 on September 30, 2011

Everything about the Shellmont was superior. Great breakfasts, bath facilities, turndown service, everything you should expect from an Inn. The innkeepers were alway available, kind and very hospitable. We have stayed in manyB&Bs and Inns, the Shellmont was by far our favorite. We came as strangers and left as friends. The 900+ miles that we are from Atlanta will not stop us from returning.

Perfect Experience!

As a single traveler, sometimes the biggest worry of going to a B&B is that your requests and general well-being be overlooked by the innkeepers in favor of the couples and families coming through. That definitely wasn't the case at the Shellmont Inn. The McCords were wonderful owners, and made my entire experience 100x better. I chose the Shellmont Inn over the local big-name hotels for my trip to Dragon-Con, and I couldn't be happier with the decision. I was greeted warmly every time I came through the doors or downstairs, Debbie sat and chatted every morning at breakfast and Ed always had a cheery greeting every time he stopped by. One evening when I decided to stay in (and off my aching feet) instead of going out for dinner, Debbie brought up a very nice fruit and cheese spread, a wonderful surprise. I felt like an appreciated guest and friend in their home, not just another customer. The house itself is beautiful and well-maintained. My room (the Downing) was cozy yet had plenty of room and character, just what I was looking for. The location was perfect for attending the convention - a short drive got me downtown, or the train station was only a few blocks away. The street was lovely, tree-lined and very quiet, yet walking only a few blocks got me to several wonderful restaurants suggested to me by the innkeepers. All in all, it was an experience to remember and certainly one to repeat next year. I definitely recommend the Shellmont Inn to anyone coming to downtown Atlanta for business or pleasure.
