This place is clean, nicely landscaped and decorated, and very conveniently located. We walked to St. John's Pass and nearby shops and restuarants. Everyone was friendly and treated us like family. We...

Every year for the past 3 years my family has spent a week in Treasure Island at the Sea Chest. We always have a great time and this year was no exception. The Sea Chest is always super clean and the front desk staff is always friendly. This year they recently renovated our usual room as well as the outside...

This is the third time my wife and I have visited this property for a weekend getaway...and of course, its continued the excellent service from check in to check out. Whats better than an ocean front room than as soon as you enter the room the scent of freshness greets you. The bedding, the bathroom, even down to the microwave...

This is the best place that we have ever stayed in Florida. Beautiful, well-kept motel. Excellent in all respects, from the cleanliness, to the frliendliest.

We usually stay in Siesta Key, but we needed a place closer to Orlando. This was such a perfect little place. Very clean and welcoming. We are looking forward to spending a week here in June. The beach is beautiful and only steps from the hotel. Sloppy Joes is a short walk away and serves very good food in a...

Clean place, shower has lowest pressure ever, but room was clean, kitchen came with all accessories. Grounds were nice, clean pool, excellent beach access, new grill. Great location to shopping, bars and restaurants. Walking distance to pretty much all places, including Johns Pass where all water sports can be had. Good value. We were in our 40's and were by...

seachest22, Manager at Sea Chest Motel, responded to this review

This was just a misunderstanding from the start. The booking was accidentally taken for the wrong month. The weekend that was actually desired was already completely booked. We have only 22 rooms for the entire motel and all 22 rooms were previously reserved. It had nothing to do with the room rates, we would of been happy to make the...
