We spent one night here and glad we only did that. It was very small the second bedroom had a curtain to separate the room from living room. The carpets are very old and there was a huge gap under the front door. The beach was very nice and the the walk was nice. The pool was good but really... More

excellent clean, comfortable rooms overlooking an uncrowded beach with a pool and palm covered tables outside for a little privacy. Our mini fridge, microwave, mini kitchen and other amenities made this a perfect spot for my wife and our two sons to "land" when we weren't on the beach or in town seeing the sights or catching up with family....

We spent two fantastic nights at this hotel. The accommodation were superb: the bed was fantastic; the mini-kitchen was all we could ask for (for snacks and beverages - WOW!). The access to the beach and pool area was really convenient. To help out with getting settle in - the elevator was a big help, although, to stay fit, the... More

After doing my research online, I booked a beach view studio - and it was the best decision I could have made. My husband and I stayed for 4 nights mid-August. Beaches were NOT crowded, the water was clear and the beaches were so clean. There is the soft sand, without tons of sharp shells, so walking barefoot was wonderful.... More

Got a brilliant deal on Trivago. Stayed 6 nights in a beach view studio. Location is excellent. Hotel is clean, pool is kept clean and tidy. Use of chairs and umbrellas etc left by other guests on a first come basis is a good idea. We left our chairs and brolly. The beach view studios are really two people, four... More

My wife and I stayed for three nights mid week. With only about 50 total rooms, no crowds. Clean, comfortable rooms with balconys overlooking the beach. Most parking is covered. Beach chairs, toys and umbrellas are provided (free) on a first come basis. The hotel is a short walk from John's Pass, plenty of little shops and restaurants. Seabreeze Grill... More

Very clean. They gave us a room on the top floor with the balcony overlooking the beach for the sunet. It was a... More

Probably 5 or 6 tables with umbrellas and plenty of lounge chairs. Balconies for all rooms. Microwave and small frig. Cons: Room size 320 square feet is really small.... More

Dear Traveler thank you for your recent review. We are very happy you enjoyed your visit to Madeira Beach. I am however sorry that you had a couple issues with your room. All of our rooms cooled by Amana PTAC AC units. They work well and sometimes too well. They do tend to cool the occupants on the sleeper sofas... More
