This is the cutest hotel and the people here are so nice. Rooms are very clean. It was so quiet too. When we got back home Rodney called and told us we left our clothes in the closet. He was nice enough to send us the clothes and even say we didn't have to pay him for that. Well of... More

I have stayed here twice now in different rooms. I was there for a yoga teacher training at a studio nearby. The rooms were clean, well designed, and perfect for me. The kitchenette is a nice plus if you are staying for more than a day or two. The management is wonderful and onsite. It's walking distance to a lovely... More

My second stay...this time for three weeks, in the suite this time...and again everything perfect from start to finish...Rodney and his father are so pleasant and helpful, you feel like family....standard of bedding and furnishings is excellent, and everywhere is spotlessly clean and promptly serviced. In a great location for nearby superb Phillipe Park (2 minutes drive), downtown Safety Harbor,... More

I spent Jan-Apr 1 at Mar Bay by myself for the 1st time away alone for this length of time. My 3 rm. suite was immaculate and fully furnished as if I were at home. Rodney & Eddie treated me like family and couldn't do enough to make me comfortable. Loved the area and I felt safe there. Couldn't stop... More

This is the second time I have had the pleasure to stay at Mar Bay. I just finished staying there for the entire month of February 2015. Rooms are spotless, safe area, beautiful grounds, and updated rooms. The owners are like family to us and always go the extra mile. The people that stay at this motel are very quiet... More

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... More

Here are some of its best features: -Chairs outside for just thinking -Laundry a few doors down in the motel that is cheap and clean -Yard and chairs out back for... More

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,... More

We just stayed at the Mar Bay in October and by we I mean we took up practically every room! It's our second time and were able to see that they not only go out of their way to keep in EMACULATE, the owner's used to own a janitorial services, hello! but they also continually renovate to keep things fresh....
