          My family will be staying at Shell Island Resort for the first time in June. First time to Wrightsville, NC. However, I am concerned with some of the reviews I have been reading about the rooms being dated and dirty. Hoping updates and renovations have been done and the cleaning improved. Hoping this is not our first and last trip here. Wanted something different besides Florida, so hoping our trip will be wonderful and our review full of compliments! If anyone can let me know if any improvements have been made would be greatly appreciated.
