Enjoyed almost every aspect of our visit - the mid-level room was very spacious, comfortable and well-appointed. Parking is extremely challenging, but with everything else more than meeting our expectations, we really just tried to look past that. Problem arose on check-out morning, however, that completely soured the entire experience there for us. My wife asked the Maria if we... More

We apologize for the unpleasant incident with the staff. Our checkout time is 10 am and we did not have a set policy for a late checkout time, which has been remedied. The guest was originally told that their room would be the last one serviced by housekeeping which may occur anytime between noon and 1 p.m., but there was... More

We had a great stay at the Sea Chest in late May 2012. The pool felt great, the beach was beautiful and the whole family had a wonderful time. The staff was helpful when we needed to print boarding passes and when we wanted to do laundry. I'd recommend the Sea Chest as a nice, relaxing and reasonable place to... More

What a gem! The true Florida experience. If you want spa treatments and fine dining, go elsewhere. This motel is so great. Cleanliness of the rooms, grounds, and pool is 1st class. Extremely comfortable motel and close to most everything you could need. I can say nothing negative about this beautiful motel on the ocean. We made memories here, you... More

The first time I came to the Sea Cest I was 16...(gosh, I'm getting old!) It is the cleanest, nicest, friendliest hotel anywhere around. Whoever said they experienced "poor customer service" must be the type that would never be happy anywhere. I feel for you. Maria, Andy and Bob are absolutely some of the nicest, friendliest, kindest and helpful people... More

What a great stay! The property is spotless. Attention to detail throughout the entire operation. The grounds are nicely landscaped, the pool is sparkling clean, the rooms are very comfortable. The kitchen had everything we needed for our two-night stay. I could go on and on. Stay here...you won't be sorry. I'll definitely go back!

My family will be spending a weekend in May in Treasure Island (we are Orlando residents) and read all of the great reviews about the Sea Chest.

Nice swimming pool and also they have a shuffle board. A small fridge and a microwave are in the rooms. Like I said, if you want a place that is clean,... More
