I've stayed at Sun Tan Terrace 4 times. If you want the Ritz, go to the Ritz. If you want a laid back place with your own beach. This is your place. Rooms cute and always clean. Staff very accommodating. Nice pool. I've sat at the Tiki Bar (byob) and met so many wonderful people from all over. I HIGHLY recommend this serene hotel!!!

Room Tip: There are nice rooms on the beach and nice rooms on the canal. Whatever your preference.

The Suntan Terrace is an old Florida gem. Fish on the docks on the bay or watch the sunsets on the Gulf. Recent renovations make for a very comfortable stay while still keeping that small motel feeling. Highly recommended. Take room #1 if it's available.

For $250 a night (we stayed 1 night) you would expect your room to be cleaned & ready at 3pm check in: Ours was not and we had to hang around outside waiting 35 minutes for the room to be cleaned. Then after it was cleaned we found the dining table covered in dust and small pieces of food.....and... a leftover subway sandwich in the refrigerator. For $250/night you would expect a friendly, attentive staff at check in: The guy who checked us in was not Mr. Personality and failed to tell us about laundry facilities, beach, pool or dock...or really anything about the motel. He didn't even tell us our assigned parking space. He was busy later talking personal stuff on his phone.

This is an OLD motel that has been fixed up a bit and freshly painted. There is very limited parking and the road on Casey Key is narrow and dangerous to walk or bike on. The only thing going for the Suntan Terrace is its location with rooms on both the Intercoastal Waterway and Gulf side of the road. It is dog friendly. For $250/night we won't be staying here again.

I have stayed here numerous times. We live ony 45 minutes away, but we love to get away for a mini vacation. You really feel "away and on vacation" at Suntan Terrace. (even if you live nearby). Kids love the pool, the beach, fishing from the dock out back. We always meet other great families vacationing here who also have lots of fun. Surf shop, ice cream parlor, bait shop, and a few restaraunts on the water are all right nearby. Highly recommend. Staff is very friendly. Oh, and it's pet-friendly, so you can bring your family dog along too. :)

Room Tip: The two bedroom units are incredible.

We stumbled on this Motel by chance and we really wanted to stay a few days. The only availability was one night, we grabbed it. The resort was perfect for our needs, a small kitchen, fully loaded with dishes, a nice size frig for a small hotel room. The pet was no problem, and it was all made easy with the tile floors. The room was very clean, the front desk was super nice and it was a perfect stay. There is a nice bar with ice and plenty of seating at the bar and plenty of chairs to pick from to sit by morning, by day and or by night. I look forward to a visit to the beautiful Casey Key Beach again and now I have a new favorite Motel to call home away from home for a few days. It was so quiet at night you could hear yourself breath....nice...

I first visited Casey Key and Suntan Terrace as a sophomore in high school. I was back for my third visit two years ago. The beach and this quaint little hotel are the perfect getaway. The daughter if a teacher, this was an affordable trip for our mutual spring breaks. A family friendly place with great staff and walkable to the causeway and restaurants makes this an idea little hideaway, just like the old days of Florida, single story right on the beach...granted there is one upper beach front unit and another building now across the street. Still love Casey Key and often 'crash' my mom's spring break trips...even though she's retired and I could stay 'fancy' in Sarasota...I'd rather be here.

Hubby and I were looking for a place steps from beach where we could just relax, look for shark's teeth, and bring our dog and boat. We found it at Suntan Terrace! Our room was perfect for the 3 of us, had very cool and updated "beachy" decorations, and the bed was SO comfy! Wish we could have stayed one more day, but it's filling up fast. :( The only negative was that we (and several other couples) really wanted to watch our Tampa Bay Rays on TV....and found out after checking in that they don't have the Sunsports/Foxsports network there! Bummer!! We did takeouts from Pelican Alley just down the street over bridge that was really good, cheap, and fast. We had 2 vehicles and boat trailer, but had no problems with parking down the street. Drum Circle on beach Sat. and Wed. is really neat! We hope no one else finds out about this place, we want to go back soon! :)

Room Tip: Only know about #16, perfect for dog because of private outside patio. Comfy beds, large bathroom b...
