Me and husband decided to visit a beach on the memorial weekend, travelling from kissemee. We tried to find a motel,hotel, b&b etc everywhere from Clearwater to St. Petes. Every room was booked. We came across this motel by accident, after trying so many, we just stopped and the lovely lady said she just had a cancellation. We took it.... More

I had to stay at this place in the mid 90's. The rooms were filthy and run-down. The continental breakfast consisted of a box of powdered doughnuts. It felt like an hourly rate motel. I'm shocked that this place is still around and that it has good reviews.

I stayed at the Swashbuckler in August of 2014. It was a great place to stay. There were several different types of units to choose from. I believe all had some sort of kitchen/kitchenette in them.The unit i stayed in was built like an apartment with a separate bedroom, kitchen and bathroom and all were very clean with nice hard...

We are long term residents of Pinellas and can't believe we are living on the beach at such an unheard of price! DJ is the friendliest owner. Very well kept, bright sunny room with a back door, window in every room perfect location. I can't believe our luck highly recommended! Rich, Anna and 3 month old Mia

We just completed our sixth stay at the Swashbuckler Motel. This time we stayed in Unit 201 where we had the usual great service and good Wifi reception. Our two week stay was from April 21 to May 5, 2012. Rich, the manager, was right there for any assistance needed and did a linen exchange after the first week. Both... More

I stay a lot of places. Wow was I impressed with swashbuckler. The sign is not impressive but the room I had 106 was the nicest for this price range I've ever seen. Full kitchen and lovely decor I enjoyed my stay . Helpful staff and the other guests were very nice. Quiet. No one bothered me ever, but when... More

The place would have been great if it wasn't for long-term guest having domestic fights all night long.

My husband and I stayed at the Swashbuckler the entire month of February, 2011, and I can't imagine that we would have had a better experience anywhere else. Our apartment was well-furnished, extremely clean, and provided the ammenities that made us feel at home. From beach chairs, towels, and umbrellas, to a well-equipped kitchen, to clean linens whenever we desired... More

My family and I have had the pleasure of staying at the Swashbuckler several times over the past three years. We enjoy the laid back attitude of the area and proximity to the sugar-sand beaches of Treasure Island. The staff was attentive when we needed them but not a bother. We were there over the 4th of July holiday and... More
