“Our second stay was just as wonderful as the first one.”
Reviewed 11 June 2014

We found the Sea Star Motel last year and had a wonderful time; that's why we decided to return this year. Bruce and Betty Anne are The Best hosts! The property is clean, comfortable, and welcoming (the fresh, home-baked cookies are a treat too). We requested, and got again, the same studio apartment we had last year - it felt like coming home again. We had everything we needed for a great week-long stay. The location is PERFECT! Just across the street is the Indian Rocks Beach Access Park as well as a trolley stop. Terrific restaurants are a short walk away. IRB is not as inundated with tourists as many of the other beaches so traffic isn't too bad, plus it is peaceful and quiet. We are already making plans for next year.

Green Features: Bruce and Betty Anne encourage recycling by providing containers on the property. They also gave us a friendly reminder to turn off lights and the a/c when we plan to be gone for any length of time.

Our three nights stay at the Sea Star was a fantastic experience.
We were in Apt. 8, a spacious one bedroom apt with all amenities, including board games and free wifi in the rooms and in the patio.
As we arrived straight from France we were a bit jetlagged and up very early in the morning, so we could enjoy the quiet little patio outside the appartment with a warm coffee and birds coming to see us, as well as the beach across the street.
Owners are very nice and pleasant, so were other guests. The Sea Star is also conveniently located on 18th avenue, within walking distance from restaurants and bars.
We'll be back, for sure !

Sea Star really is the best kept secret in IRB. A variety of accommodations to choose from, are pet friendly for dogs and cats of all shapes and sizes, and are located directly across from the best beach in the world. This is a classic Florida motel, made of concrete and stucco; this means they are surprisingly quiet. The rooms are clean and equipped with everything you need including dishes, glasses and silverware. Betty Anne and Bruce are kind and flexible.

For our next trip to IRB, if the Sea Star is all booked up, we will be rescheduling our trip.

Joe and Les.

Room Tip: Room 1 (on the far end near the road) does allow some of the noise from the road in. If another room...

Found Sea Star Motel at the last minute. From first call, Betty Ann and Bruce were friendly and accommendating.

Our space was an oasis and a delightful turn from our usual venues. Our efficency apartment was clean and visually delightful. All necesities to make our stay homey were available. Our little dog was treated as a Queen. The beach living was like I read in novels.

On a more personal note, we felt like we left great friends when it was time to go. The week we visited, there was a group pizza party and a girls night out of card playing. I travel with my husband while he works and Betty Ann, and Bruce's efforts gave a feeling of community gave me a feeling of small town security.

Moved my daughter to Indian Rocks and i feel so appreciative for all that Bruce and Betty Anne did for us. The cottage was perfect and it came with a well equipped kitchen,close to everything and reasonably priced.But the effort that Bruce and Betty Anne made to help us was a blessing,they went out of their way,taking us to see a table at their church thrift store (which we purchased) Betty Anne drove us there in her car,to giving us paint,towels,and other materials for allison's apartment. They are two of the nicest people you could meet,i feel lucky to have met them and when we come to visit the first place that i will check for a room will be the"Seastar".Thanks again Bruce and Betty Anne and "God Bless"
