We spent three wonderful nights at the Mar Bay Motel. First, the location was just the right distance from all the areas we came to visit. Second, the room was spotless and had all the amenities we could ask. Third, it is not one of the standard cookie cutter motels you see all along the roadside. It’s a classic throwback to when times were more simple but it had the modern conveniences we expect. The owners were great in communicating with us about our stay. Highly recommend the Mar Bay if you’re coming to Safety Harbor!

We like a quiet, comfortable retreat. We stayed here while spending the weekend in Safety Harbor. This is just a short drive from downtown and Phillipe Park. The property is small and well maintained. The room was extremely clean, comfortable and had everything we needed. Rodney went above and beyond to make sure we had what we needed. The room had a full sized fridge, sink, microwave, and table in the kitchenette. We would definitely stay here again.

This clean comfortable hotel was just what I was looking for. Close to everything yet located in a quiet residential area which is truly peaceful, especially after dark. No huste bustle, just a great place to stay for a week. Management takes excellent care of their guests. Would definitely stay at the Mar Bay again next time I visit the area.

What a nice family run motel with Rodney and his dad Ed taking care of the business from bookings to housecleaning and everything else. My wife and I have stayed here many times over the past ten years or so and it always the same – immaculately clean and fresh. During our last stay at Mar Bay I became ill and wanted to extend my stay for a while to recuperate (understand this motel has eight units and is usually fully booked way in advance) Rodney went way out of his way to juggle things around so that I could be accommodated. Very helpful and pleasant to deal with!

We stayed here which will soon be 8 nights while visiting relatives. The room was recently refurbished. The shower is tiled and has a hand held sprayer. The single sink is finished with a marble counter. There is two deco style chairs with corner table as a sitting area.
The king size bed has 6 pillows two of which are body size. The mattress is firm, a flat screen TV with remote and cable channels. The kitchenette has a full size fridge, toaster, microwave, coffee maker, and a selection of flatware, dishes and cups for two. The furnishings, lamps, and decor are tastefully done. Wood shades on the windows and a newer a/c unit. The kitchen is well equipped and serves us well. They make the bed daily and empty the trash. The owners are nice and accommodating.
We are pleased and will definitely return.
