Ok, I'll get the negatives right out of the way. This motel is old and not in the best condition. The grout on the floor tiles is falling out and the tiles wobble when you walk on them. Shower stall is moldy and the water doesn't drain. The kitchen doesn't really have the necessary amenities. No glasses in our room. Refrig and stove are small but ok. The place could really use a good scrubbing. Now with that said, lets get to the positives....
Suntan Terrace is located on Casey Key which the South end has maybe 5 old Florida style motels on. It is dog friendly and has a boat slip with a public launch nearby. (Call 1st about that because it is closed now for construction) The rest of the island consists of mansions and is fantastic for bike riding. Half of the rooms are Intercoastal side and the other Gulf side with 3 units (#1,7 & 8) Gulf front. This portion of the Gulf is great for shelling. The dogs were welcome although I don't think its legal. No signs saying otherwise. You won't see any staff here for the most part. They come in for a few hours to check people in and there gone. No housekeeping services which is fine. A nice quiet little place. I would reccommend this motel but if little things like 2 ply toilet paper, decent towels, wine glasses/opener, etc are important, pack them. Then sit back and enjoy the view!

I have visited this particular resort off and on for numerous years. The staff treats you like family, the atmoshere is extremley relaxed, and the scenery is awesome. If you enjoy sunbathing, cooking on the grill, walking the beaches, or meeting new friends at the self serve Tiki Bar you will highly enjoy this resort. There are local restuarants in walking distance if you don't feel like cooking. I love this cute home away from home.

We travel to the Sarasota area from Orlando several times a year to attend the wonderful plays at the Asolo Theater in Sarasota and have stayed just about everywhere in many price ranges, incuding Siesta Key, Lido Key, Amelia Island, Longboat Key, Venice B & B's, and inland Sarasota. We had no idea Casey Key even existed. What a find! Only a handful of motels on the southmost end of the Key near the south bridge. The rest of Casey Key is all residential homes. No restaurants, no touristy stores (no stores at all), no gas stations, just plenty of quiet and beautiful sandy beach. The motel looks 50's built. Clean and practical tile floors (no dirty carpet here, what a concept!) Room #7 had a combination living room/complete kitchen plus a separate bedroom, and a truly spectacular view of the ocean. There is a Tiki bar where friends gather, but no food or beverage service (bring your own.) If there is a pool we didn't see it, but there are beach chairs at no charge and no hands out for tips every time you turn around. How refreshing. Plenty of dining is availbable off the Key in Nokomis or Venice. During your stay, be sure to drive the length of the Key to gawk at the "hidden retreats" of its wealthy residents. If you need fancy pools, drink service, free breakfast, and "fawning" this is not the place for you. Nothing upscale, a tad worn, but clean and for privacy, beauty, and incredible value, this is gonna to be hard to beat.

Since the only trip advisor review was pretty negative we gave this little resort a try...its a renovated motel and gave us the right on the beach access we wanted....the room was cute & comfortable although not stellar...and included a kitchenette w fridge & mw, cable tv, & 2 beds for an off season price of $80/nite(they call it an efficiency)...you could see the gulf from the window....and the beach was wonderful!!
bring your own beach chairs though....the resorts are heavy wood and not comfortable....
I'd definitly return...
