“Great Escape”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2014

This is the fifth consecutive year that we have come here. It was nicely updated, clean and accommodating. We are right across from the pool and we really enjoy that. We meet friends that have also been coming for many years. The pool is heated nicely and there are charcoal grills along with outside amenities and a tiki hut. We enjoy the tiki hut at happy hour. Most shopping and restaurants are nearby. It was a great stay and we plan on going back next year.

We always look forward to our fall trip over to Treasure Island to stay at the Malyn Resort. This year when we arrived we were unable to check into our reserved studio room due to a minor plumbing problem. Sue immediately upgraded us to a one bedroom room so we wouldn't have to wait. We were delighted with #103 with its clean and bright furniture and décor and well stocked kitchen. Apparently in July 2013 a disgruntled person complained to TripAdvisor about this room but we can't agree with any of their comments of the room or the resort in general. It is pleasantly and efficiently managed. The location of the resort is close enough to walk to cafes, Publix, Walgreens and shopping while being tucked into a quiet area on the bayside with lush landscaping where the only traffic you hear is herons and pelicans squawking for the same perch.

The Malyn is a clean, very nice place to stay at Treasure Island.

Only a 5 min walk to the beach, bars, restaurants. Very close to the Thunderbird and Bilmar Hotels.

Accomodation is fairly basic but clean. All things needed such as washing up liquid, bin bags etc provided.

Outdoor pool is lovely and warm and the outside facilities are great. Plenty of seating and the cabana makes a good place to eat with friends especially if the weather is poor.

Only down side for the 4 days we were there and a warning to others, The Malyn rents out a lot of its rooms during certain weekends throughout the year to large parties. At least 30 Americans (adults & kids) arrived in one large works party and basically over ran the place. Drinking beer in the pool, rubbish left all over the cabana and once drink was inside them the language was choice to say the least.

Our kids felt too intimidated to enter the pool so it did put us off somewhat, saying that it encouraged us to take a picnic down to the beach to watch the sunset.

I would love to go back but I would make sure no large groups were due at the same time. Apparantly this same work group spend one weekend in August there every year.

Met a few of the owners who were all really friendly.

I am a local from Tampa Bay. I have stayed in the big hotels down to the little motels on treasure island. I love this area it is beautiful and there is so much to do. However, This was my first time i stayed at the Malyn Condo Motel. They gave us a great deal. The rooms were so nice and I am actually considering moving to treasure island now. The staff was plea sent and the grounds were very well kept. I walked most places and it was conveniently located while being very affordable. They were wonderful and I will most definitely stay there again in the near future.

We lived in Florida for 20 years and used to come down several times a year for weekend getaways and always loved staying at the Malyn. Now that we live out of state, we have taken weeklong vacations here for 2 years in a row, and it has been even more wonderful. This is a place that's generally quiet - if you're looking for a nonstop party, you won't find it here. What you will find is clean, quiet accomodations on the Intercoastal, docks to fish from or sit with a cool drink and watch the water. The beach is about a block and a half away, the pool is sparkling in the middle of a lovely courtyard. Convenient walk to restaurants, drugstore and grocery shopping. The staff were very accomodating and helpful. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, it really is like a home away from home.

This is the 3rd or 4th time staying at the Malyn and I am always impressed at the friendliness of management and the cleanliness of the rooms. What a great place to just escape to and be tucked away from the hectic beach yet only a short walk to all the action.

We have stayed at the Malyn's many times but will not be back! I was in 103 The couch was filthy I needed a sheet to sit on it. The bed I slept on top of it was so bad, but the owners and managers are the reason. The rules that apply to guests don't apply to owners. It's a NO PET policy but the owners bring there's. This holiday July 3,4, 5th. Owner in 104 had at least 20 friends and were drinking and cooking till 4AM. Manager on duty has no say in what they do. It must be why we've known at least 6 managers over the year. Dock has an owners sailboat parked so you can't use the dock. He never moves it or takes it out. We were screamed at by an owners daughter spouting profanity with our small children there. THERE ARE BETTER PLACES TO STAY. CHOOSE ANOTHER FOR YOUR VACATION!!!!!

MalynResort, Board of Directors at Malyn Resort Condominium Motel, responded to this review, July 18, 2013
We were sorry to see the recent comments from a guest who has been coming here for over 20 years.We take all comments good and bad seriously. As the board of directors, we’d like to address each of the concerns:

Owners of units here at the Malyn treat guests with the utmost respect and in fact, go out of their way to make sure they are enjoying their stay. An owner with a boat docked, concerned with the happiness of the guest boat owners in this reviewer’s group, offered to remove his boat from the dock entirely. The guest was appreciative, but declined this offer. In addition, management has not charged these guests for their boats for several years in an effort to ensure their happiness.

The person referred to as an owner’s daughter in this review was sent a letter by the board of directors regarding the undeniable bad behavior that weekend.

Our managers are on-site to ensure guests are happy. We wish we could have heard about any complaints with your accommodations when you checked in or shortly after so we could have remedied the situation. We cannot fix what we don’t know about.

We hope the author of the review will give us another try as they have been happy here for over 20 years.

A taste of the old Florida style, the Malyn is a friendly family resort located right in the heart of Treasure Island within walking distance of Gulf beaches, parks, shopping and restaurants. Sitting right on the edge of Boca Ciega Bay on the Intracoastal it is a great place to relax and enjoy some quiet time - maybe enjoy a sunset or just relax by the pool with a good book. With a fishing dock and boat dock it is the ideal place for families who love to fish. Grills and a lovely waterfront cabana are fun too especially for small group get togethers. The newly appointed Staff and Management are experienced in the hospitality industry and are customer focused. Their philosophy is service orientated and their main goal is to exceed your expectations. ... more   less
