“Disappointing”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 March 2013

We did not get the room we booked 2 months ahead of our arrival - one of the "deluxe 1 bedroom suites" for $105 and were disappointed and cramped in room 222 instead. This is a "mom and pop motel", not a resort in any way shape or manner. There were none of the usual hotel services like elevators, or emailed confirmations, phone service, or wireless for iphone. AC/heater in bedroom fan was too noisy to run at night if you wanted to sleep. The DVD/vcr did not work. Everything in the room looked like it needed to be replaced - except maybe the refrigerator which we only used for cooling beer and water. The pool is small but the pool deck was pleasant even in the chilly march cold snap that kept us off the beach. We will definitely not go back here again, but in all honesty, there were others who thought it was just fine for the price. They get a lot of returnees and long term guests, so not everyone sees things the way we do. (Yes, we are pretty fussy, and this place convinced me that we need to bite the bullet and pay the price at more upscale environments.)

Room Tip: people who recommended this place said that rooms 229 and 230 were the best - but we did not get the...

Located across the street from Treasure Island Beach. Staff very helpful. Stayed in a 2nd floor suite with large living room and furnished kitchen and nice wood floors and large HD TV. Free Wi-Fi. Nice pool. Location to beach was fine.

Room Tip: Stayed in 2nd floor suite overlooking pool Room 230.

After 2 weeks at the Clearwater Clarion I needed a beach so I headed down to Treasure Island and visited several motels checking rooms and rates.I got a nice room,the "Honeymoon Suite" which is one large room with a low ceiling,no idea why.Anyway,it's a motel,not a resort at all,but that's fine.Everybody there smokes,but not in the rooms per se,just outside everywhere including the pool area.However,Lisa runs the place well and you're across the street from the beach.Also,included in the price,is a membership to the TI Yacht Club where I worked out daily for 2 weeks in their weight room.I actually had a really nice time:great price,nice room,beach walks,food options near by and I dodged the smokers.In the late afternoon they would leave the pool and I would sit and enjoy the quiet then stroll the beach until sunset.There are several different room options and some are quite nice.

You will be so happy and comfortable here. Treasure Island is a great beach and friendly but this place is the Best.. It is a small place & just across the street from the Beach. But I have stayed & worked for larger hotels and Never felt so relaxed and happy. The rooms are really nice and Lisa & Frank are the Best Managers you will find anywheres! The owners are so lucky to have such caring people taking care of everything for the guest and quickly. You will never want to leave.

This is our first trip to Treasure Island Florida. We wanted a place near the beach and walking distance to resturants etc. THIS is the place. We had a beautiful room with convenient parking, the beach was just across the street. Lisa and Frank are amazing managers and care takers! We never had any problems and Lisa was always checking on us to see if we needed anything!!! We had a fridge, mircowave, toaster oven and coffee maker,with a grill outside in the patio area if we desired to grill out. I am SO looking forward to coming back again next year!
Love you guys!!!

Room Tip: There are bigger rooms than what we stayed in. It's all about what's best for you and your f...

Just ended our first stay. We were there for 3 nights prior to seeing hockey games. Although the weather was OK it was not hot enough to enjoy playing in the surf, but we enjoyed evening and morning strolls along the waters edge. We were upgraded to a one bedroom deluxe upon arrival. The suite was cute, loved the old hardwood floors and the layout. The kitchen was functional, but the oven itself was not heating well and what should have taken 20 mins, took over an hour. The air conditioner and couches were both very dusty and I had to keep popping allergy meds to be able to sit there in the evening with the air running. We probably will not go back for the following reasons. This is not really a non smoking friendly place as you can smoke anywhere outside including right out your door and all around the pool, making it difficult for those of us that are irritated by the smoke as you are forced to walk through it and have it come through your windows. The bed was a air mattress with a foam topper and was not comfortable and the noises it made reminded me of camping. I have never had a air mattress as a bed in hotel room, very strange indeed. Our room did not have a balcony only a stair case so there was no where for us to sit in the early morning not that we would have wanted to with all the smoke. This resort really caters to the elderly with a quiet time at 9 pm and the parking. Anyone younger (we are in our 50's) have to park at the end of the block and lug everything upstairs. There are so many resorts in the area that we will go else where next time.

Room Tip: Ask if the room comes with a real mattress or an air mattress, at least you will know going into the...

From check in to check out we were treated as valued guests. The place is newly renovated, and nice. The owners took care to make a place to relax. Room was small, but clean and comfortable. Any issues, small ones, were addressed right away. Location was convenient to most places that you may want to go.
