This is an older establishment, but everything was very clean, updated and a very good value for your money. It is on the beach and has a moderate size pool area. the staff very nice and helpful.

My girlfriend and I stayed for a weekend for a quick getaway. Rooms were very clean and well maintained. Kitchen was a great bonus. Hotel was convenient to restaurants, a grocery store and area attractions. The beach was amazing! Clean and very quiet in the month of November. The manager was very nice and helpful. We hope to be back!

We stayed in unit 30 for 7 nights, a stand alone beach cottage right on the shore of the Gulf. It was well appointed, clean, and had everything we needed for our stay (2 adults, 1 4 year-old). The pool area was great, and there were plenty of beach loungers and chairs to take onto the beach. A relaxing, hassle-free... More

The location of this hotel is fabulous and has great potential. Our family planned a fun filled vacation that turned out to be a vacation filled with too many rules and feeling as though we had to walk on eggshells with the constant criticism from management. When going on a vacation you look forward to being able to relax and... More

The best way to respond to this review is to read my response below for the review titled "Nice Quaint Place but for Adults Only", along with the following: This guest was another person from the 'same group'.

Okay, I will start of saying that this is a nice little Florida motel. If you are a elderly couple with no kids and are quiet this will be your little gem on the beach. If you have a family then steer clear away from here. The caretakers are very stringent and really almost gestapo like. Instead of being happy... More

Reviews are always welcome at Sea Club and we do appreciate constructed criticism when it is factual and helpful unlike this review. Sea Club is a place for young and old alike and I am unsure why this was stated. The only issue there was for the time this group was here, was cleaning up their mess at the pool.... More

The Sea Club 1 is right on the the beach. Walk from your apartment onto the beautiful Longboat Key beach. We swam, played Frisbee, looked for shells and watched stunning sunsets. We had an efficiency apartment on the second floor which overlooked the beach and the ocean. It was spotless and very comfortable. Wifi and a wide selection of TV... More

We just took our first trip to Longboat Key and spent the weekend at Sea Club 1. What a beautiful hotel! We absolutely LOVED it! The property and the units are impeccably maintained.
