I know the area so booked this motel on basis of the ratings, and was delighted! I arrived an hour later than expected but Rodney was so welcoming and helpful. I had an efficiency and it was superb...everything high standard & spotlessly clean throughout, with everything you need (Rodney even provided a tea kettle for specially) room serviced perfectly and...

Well, I suppose if one tried hard enough one could find something negative to say. If you don't have a car, it is a bit out of the way but taxi service is pretty good and not overpriced. As to the positives, it is a great family place both in terms of the management (family) and the appeal (good place...

One of the best places I have ever stayed. VERY reasonable rates. The rooms are kept exceptionally clean, all the comforts of home are provided and Rodney Ramos has to be one of the nicest people I have ever had the pleasure of meeting and doing business with. If you ask, you will receive. Looking forward to our next visit,...

Our second time to stay at the Mar Bay and must say it was even better than the last. It is kept up and the most accommodating place we have ever stayed. It is smaller and older than some other places but stands head and shoulders above all of them. It does not have a pool or work out room...

I stayed at the Mar Bay for 5 days my room contained a king bed, chair, table and chairs, mirrored closet doors, kitchenette with dishes and silverware. They ask you to reuse the towels but provided more than enough to use during my stay. The room also has a great tv, iron board and iron and hair dryer, ceiling fan...

Mar Bay is a small older motel in Safety Harbor. You might drive by, nothing fancy, but unless you have a need for the high priced resort areas this is a great place that I highly recommend. Rooms are large, clean, exceptionally well kept one room or apartment efficiencies with newer clean appliances. The price is reasonable with discounts for...

It has all been said, it is on a par with Hilton's Hampton Inn. Maybe better. Everything is tops. The beds, the ac/heater, the appliances. the tv, the wifi/internet, did we say it was hospital clean. We were so pleased with out accommodation for one week, we have booked for one month next year. All this at reasonable prices.

“One of my favorite rooms is the suite, The whole family gathers in the big living room and have breakfast in the eat in kitchen. It's a large one bedroom apartment. The other favorite is the last room on the opposite end of the suite because it has all the extra windows and lovely view of the huge green back yard.”
