We only got to spend one night at this motel but found it to be charming and comfortable. After flying into Tampa we got in after dark but we did get up in the morning and had a relaxing walk on the beach, found some shark's teeth and shells and watched the birds. We are already talking about going back... More

This 9 unit hotel is a great spot - very clean, small old Florida. If you like luxurious, go to a high rise somewhere else. This had a fully stocked kitchen so you could cook any meal you like, with a new weber grill outside each unit. Outdoor shower between every two units so you could wash the sand off... More

BEST getaway we have ever had. The beach was perfect, room very clean and the customer service was impeccable! This will become a yearly tradition for sure....possibly twice a year. We had our next trip planned even before left. Thank you Seafarer for being our romantic getaway!

Living in Central Florida we are blessed to have our pick of beaches to visit. Manasota Key and the Seafarer is our favorites. The Seafarer is the most awesome place, beautiful motel, very friendly and the best beachfront. We had such a GREAT weekend.

I booked our room at the last minute- a stroke of luck. Never been here before but knew the area from staying at the Pearl Beach Resort down the road a few years ago. As prior reviewers have noted the place is older, but very clean and comfortable. We really enjoyed the smallness of the resort and proximity to the... More

I stayed on unit 8. This is not a 5 star resort. It is an "OLD MOTEL" directly on the beach. It is decorated in thrift store attire and the bed didn't have allot of support; however it was clean and I absolutely loved this little place. I had a small kitchen and originally planned to eat breakfast and lunch... More

We came across this small family owned spot by accident and decided to stay for a long romantic anniversary weekend. We found it comfortable and clean and "old Florida." It's nestled amongst million dollar mansions and the beach is beautiful. The owners were very accomadating. No visitors rule made it very quiet for an adult-only weekend. The pool was very... More

Much nicer than other hotels of Venice. The staff was very friendly and helpfull. The room clean and very nice. I loved the porch area in front of the room with a barbacue special for us. The beach is perfect. I just miss the daily cleaning of a hotel.

I always enjoy my stays at Gem Coast Inn. The staff is always accommodating to the guest needs. The improvements to the Inn are wonderful. I feel right at home when visiting friends in Englewood. Awesome Place.

We travelled across from Miami through Alligator Alley armed with our trusty Samsung Notepad looking for places to stay based on Trip Advisor ratings and affordability.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Seafarer Beach Resort is an adult only beachfront resort located in Englewood, Florida. The Seafarer facility spans the width of the long, narrow barrier island of Manasota Key, offering both bay and beach access. The peace and tranquility of life on Manasota Key can be a welcome respite from the hectic pace of everyday life, as well as from the more well-known and, therefore, more crowded vacation destinations. Manasota Key is Southwest Florida's best kept secret. There are no high-rises, no crowds, no condos, and no traffic lights, just a two-lane road and pristine beaches. ... more   less
