“great location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2013

We spent three nights here over Thanksgiving and it was a comfortable spacious place to just relax. The check in staff was quite friendly and helpful. The view from our gulf front room was just lovely. The continental breakfast was adequate. The bed was comfortable and clean.

Room Tip: Get a room with a view of the Gulf.

This property is ideal for adults. The staff is extremely helpful! They really do explain the room types and advise you on what floor location is available for the room you are seeking. We just returned from our fourth visit and will return again.

Yes the site is under construction but at the present time no actual construction is taking place. The construction will add a 4 floor high rise with a fitness/exercise center and observation deck. The buildings that did occupy this area have been removed and construction will begin in the near future.

The location directly on the beach offers you gulf front rooms with a specular view of the gulf and the opportunity to relax and unwind in the large heated pool or the ocean itself.

We have stayed at many other hotels over the years. If you are looking for a hotel location that gives you a break from the under 21 crowd, you will not be disappointed if you stay at the Shoreline Island Resort.

Room Tip: the web site of this hotel provides a great description However, call the friendly staff for more d...

This is the second time my wife and I have stayed here. We come often to the PInellas Beaches. We've stayed in several places on the beaches. This one is one of our favorites. The pricing, the service, the beach all excellent. I believe that once they complete their new addition, this place will be even better. Very quite, all adults, no kids making racket. Very relaxing.

I reserved a spacious queen room for 2 nights on the 4th floor. I specifically asked the receptionist if I could have a room as high as possible, and she said and I quote, "I can get you as high as the 4th floor." She said she sent me a confirmation e-mail, but I never received it. When I checked in, I noticed the room key said 236. The receptionist then told me, well, we can reserve the size of the room, not the location. That is NOT what she said to me over the phone when she was taking my credit card information. I had to pay up front for the first night, so I would have expected the room I reserved to be available to me. Instead, I got stuck on the BOTTOM floor. I tried to make the best of it, but found out quite quickly after the sun went down that the heater was broken. Normally not a big deal, but it was extremely cold that night, and ruined the mood for any sort of indoor activities, considering it was about 40 degrees inside the room.

Room Tip: There is a lot of remodeling being done around the property. It feels like your at a construction si...

We have sent you a personal email about your previous visit and have not received a response. Hopefully we have your correct email address on file. If not, please contact us so we can discuss this in further detail.
We regret to hear that you had an unpleasant experience and we would appreciate the opportunity to make it right with you. If our guests make any specific requests such as room numbers, building preferences and/or room locations we advise that we do not make guarantees unless the reservation is made for 7 nights or more. With this being said, we always encourage requests as we will do everything we can to assign you in a room/location of your choice. Also, we require a deposit of one nights’ room and tax in advance for all guests in order to guarantee any reservation and this guarantees the room type only. I completely understand your frustration as you were led to believe that you would end up on the 4th floor.
We also apologize that you went without heat during the cold snap we had last week. It seems that it was not reported until the later afternoon of your second day with us. Please note that we have maintenance onsite and available at all times and after hours for emergencies. In the future, please contact us as soon as any maintenance issue arises so we may have the opportunity to correct it immediately without compromising your comfort.

We take pride in the Shoreline and strive to make every guest feel welcome and relaxed. If you have any questions you may contact Michael Marsh, General Manager at 727-397-6641.

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.

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.
