“Great place to stay, Terrific staff”
Reviewed 15 May 2014

From the time we arrived to our departure, our stay at SunTan Terrace was wonderful. We received a great welcome and even had help unloading the car. We stayed in room #7 which was spotless and was equipped with everything we needed. We look forward to returning for another stay and have recommended SunTan to several friends.

Cute, charming, old Floridian motel right on the beach. Loved the hammock, and adorondack chairs for watching the sunset or reading a good book. We stayed in room 6 with a king bed, and it had everything we needed in the stocked kitchenette. Room was clean and cutely decorated. It even had a view of the water even though it wasn't one of the rooms on the ocean! Great area for biking. Nice seafood restaurants nearby. Can't wait to go back!

The beds are comfy, furnishings are very cheerful and more than adequate, rooms have a little kitchenette area with basics, the beach is fabulous. The staff is very accommodating and responsive. We have stayed in many of the rooms over the years, and recommend renting one of the apartments for an extended stay or more than 2 people. One can walk on the beach for miles, walk to several local restaurants for music, food and drinks, ice cream and more. The supermarket is a 5 minute drive. We are sun lovers, and enjoy catching the sunrise over the intracoastal waterway from their deck, watching the beautiful sunsets over the gulf and everything in between. There is no mistaking you are on a sunny, beachy island at Suntan Terrace.

Room Tip: We love the roominess and quiet of the apartments on the east side of the property.

Spent 10 relaxing day at the Suntan Terrace in #8 , which is a second floor 1 bedroom apt. We loved the large porch with a beautiful view of the beach, gulf and sunsets. Our dog spent a lot of time playing on the porch and checking out the people and their canine companions. Met new friends at the Tiki bar, and we enjoyed fishing at the dock on the canal side
. Wish the pool was heated. The beach here is wonderful, & the color of the water is awesome. Not fancy, but very comfortable and had everything we needed.

Having lived in the Venice area for 5 years, we have tried to go back there once or twice per year. We had never stayed on Casey Key and were looking forward to it. And our room, for what it was, was clean and comfortable. We stayed in #2, a kitchenette with two double beds. We would have preferred a king but that was not available—they don’t have a lot of king beds. It was not beachfront but very close. The room was as advertised but for 4 nights, like we had planned on staying, it was just too small. I guess we should have realized that ahead of time but I think this was the smallest ‘kitchenette’ that we have ever stayed in. Besides the beds and the small kitchen area, there was a small two seat high top table, a small chair, and a small bathroom. It would be fine for one or two nights but beyond that, particularly if you have rainy weather, it just isn’t enough room. We had good weather the 1st day, but rain most of the rest of the time. Although the weather was not anything the motel (the people were great) could control, it left us feeling closed in.
We actually ended up leaving a day early (without a refund) due to the rainy weather and the lack of space. For any stay over two days, we will come back if we can get a one bedroom at a reasonable price. Otherwise, the proximity of the beach, while great, doesn’t make up for the lack of space.

Room Tip: If you are staying for more than one or two nights, a one bedroom would be a better choice.

February was my second stay at the Suntan Terrace and it did not disappoint. We had #10, beachside for 3 of us and it was very roomy, clean, convenient, just perfect. The table and chairs on the patio and a perfect place for breakfast or dinner and the sunset. If you're looking for a comfortable, laid back place by the beach, I definitely recommend the Suntan Terrace.
