I have returned to the Sea Chest many times over the years. No bugs! Clean! Steps to the beach! Lovely pool. Outdoor seating and grills Even my efficiency apartment was nicely appointed. Every time I go, I wish I could stay longer. Great place to stay anytime of the year. Did I mention the sunsets on the gulf? Always amazing....

Stayed there in March fror six days and will be the last time. The old Folks that stay there for the winter are very rude. When you try to speak to them they totally ignore you and give the attitude that you are invading their territory. They actually think they run the place. The woman who operates the place really...

We have been staying a Sea Chest for over 14 years. I hate to leave reviews saying how good it is as it now becomes very popular and we sometimes cannot get our dates. If your looking for somewhere clean, relaxing, on the beach with a nice pool then this is the place to stay. Thank Maria

We go to the Sea Chest every other year with our grandchildren and they love it! We love it! The rooms are always clean, the pool is clean and the landscaping is beautiful. The owners are wonderful. The Sea Chest is my happy place.

The hotel is excellent. Great outdoor area, pool is fantastic!! The beach is great for walking and playing in the sand with the little ones. Would go back again!! Lots of places to eat and the kitchen in the room is fully stock for cooking except for the food, that's on you!

We have been staying here Dec thru Feb for the past 6 years and have always enjoyed our stay. The owners Maria & Andy and their staff are friendly and accommodating. The place is always clean and they do regular updates all the time. Would recommend staying here to anyone.

This place is the best on the beach. Maria is always updating her property and we never had had a problem in 11 years. She treats her motel like her own home. I highly recommend this motel to any on the beach including all the new ones.

Thank Les R
