My family of 4 had such a great vacation this past spring break at the Carousel Motel. This Motel was perfect! Close to the beach, clean, cozy and located right between clearwater and St. Pete. The owner and her dog were so friendly and accommodating. Nice grassy area to grill and have lunch if you want to leave the sand.... More

This gem was perfect for our family vacation! So close to the beach! Very close to any type of food and entertainment you could want! Cute quiet little place. The owner was always so helpful to anything. I would definitely stay at again! Not to mention this again, but so close to the perfect beach!

Judy is the owner and she is very helpful and a wonderful person to get to know. My parents have been regulars of hers for over 12 years, and they consider her to be like... More

Cute and nice place to stay for a beach vacation. We stayed here for its affordability and quick beach access but it was a 20 minute drive to both Clearwater and St. Pete Beach where there was more activity. Reddington was isolated and quiet. Check in was very friendly and accommodating. We loved the puppy and the Friendly Tavern across... More

This motel is very overpriced and filthy. Nine of the windows would lock so we carried everything with us, everywhere. The check in was friendly. Do not stay here. I washed the floor, dishes and cleaned the bathroom before we moved anything in. The bed squeaked and hurt our backs.

We came down to Indian Shores to visit family and were delighted to fine this little gem available for our 4 nite stay in early March as places were filling up. Location is close to the beach and includes parking on site. The staff were pleasant and helpful. The room was very clean and included a well equipped small kitchen.... More

Reminded me of the 50's and 60's in Fla. It is an older hotel, but it is quite quaint. The owner was a charming woman. We were treated well by the owner and her kids. It was an enjoyable stay. It is very close to the beach, and a restaurant/bar across the street as well as a convenience store.

I hardly write reviews but because before I came here I looked up reviews from trip advisor and that was how I made my decision to book at the Carousel Motel....I decided that I should write too! I came here to stay 29 days. I was very nervous to commit to pay for this long and after few days find... More
