“On the Beach, Off the Beaten Path.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2013

Madeira Beach is not the "typical" touristy type beach area, no crowded streets and not a shopping mecca. It does however have fine restaurants and lodging, and beautiful, endless gulf beaches. Shoreline Island Resort is, in my opinion, a stand out in the area. To be honest it is a tad dated, by that I mean it has a friendly and helpful staff that treats you like family, a central sunny area with heated pool, shuffle board courts, built in brick grills, tons of tables and chairs and beach access with foot and full body heated showers. What it does not have is people under the age of 21 staying there. We booked a double queen studio that featured a full kitchen, dinning table for 6, 2 recliners, 2 dressers and of coarse 2 queen beds, full bath and a large flat screen TV with DVD player. The complete end of the room was a screened in balcony with table and chairs, a chase lounge and a clean ashtray (the room is "officially" non-smoking) all overlooking the beach and gulf. Everything in the room was up to date. We stayed for 4 nights and did not hear anything except the surf. Daily maid service was a nice touch.

My wife and I plan on making the Shoreline a "must do" on our vacation list. Many warm thanks to the entire staff!

I had looked this up on trip advisor and I was really disappointed. Was listed as 1 of the best....who
wrote those reviews and who paided you to do it? It was clean but it is difficult to get into parking lot due to construction. We were given a room across the street and there was noise from street and air conditioners. The street is so busy during the day you take you life in your hands just crossing. Neighborhood is questionable.... Found rubber on ground in front of units. Not for us.....maybe years ago and maybe after construction is done.

Room Tip: Construction noise.......not many rooms available except across very busy street! Pool was not avai...

We hope for everyone who visits Shoreline to have a wonderful stay and are sad to hear of your disappointment. The construction does cause some difficulties, but we are excited to have it started so it can be finished. The new building should be completed October 2014. Hopefully the building itself will be up and the construction noise should be at a minimum early 2014.
We try to keep all our rooms clean and comfortable, and are constantly working to improve the property and please all our guests. I am sorry it was such a busy time and we were not able to accommodate you on the Gulf side. I hope you will try us again in the future and give us another opportunity to impress you.

My husband & I were at the Shoreline the end of June 2013. We were celebrating our 25th Anniversary and absolutely loved the time we were there. The balconies looking over the Gulf were perfect. The quietness of the resort and quality of service and room were perfect for us. We did miss the convenience of a restaurant on-site, but there there several places to eat up and down the beach area. The pool and walking the beaches were our forms of fitness. We liked the adult atmosphere. We have snow right now and are planning our next visit. Looking forward to returning to this gem on the Gulf.

Madeira beach, our favorite beach for many years, has been taken over by condominiums. The Shoreline survived by meeting the needs of their guests.
People come here for the natural beauty, and appreciate a nice tidy room at a reasonable rate
so they can stay as long as possible and come back often.
The rooms have all been updated in the past year with flat-screen TV's, new beds and pillows, and new rocker recliners.
The staff continues to be genuinely friendly and helpful.
The continental breakfast has improved from last year, with packaged pastries replaced by granola bars, and the addition of fresh apples and oranges, although it is still severely lacking in protein choices.
Great opportunities for nature photography abound with many species of birds, the gulf and the sun.
We are looking forward to our next visit.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. As I previously mentioned to another guest, we are looking into offering new and healthier options for our free continental breakfast. Due to the fact that we do not have a full kitchen facility, we are restricted to only offering individually packaged items. We added fresh fruit and yogurt for a better variety. Thank you for staying with us and providing us with your feedback. We look forward to seeing you again soon.

Excellent location on the shore. Friendly and helpful staff on reception. Good view to the Gulf from the room. Reasonable price, and sometimes they also have discounts. The only negative is that the breakfast is very poor.
