“Sweet Efficiency Gulf Front Unit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2014

Last week we enjoyed 3 nights at this motel that we will visit again. The view of the Gulf from our efficiency unit was great. It was clean and the beds comfortable. This is not one of the units that have been renovated, but it was still very acceptable to us. The curtains showed the most need of being replaced. It was much cheaper than another motel we stayed in up the beach that has recently been renovated, and since it's NOT on the "boardwalk" it meant less people walking by the motel so less noise and risk of "intruders." There are cabanas available on the beach to rent, but the motel has lawn chairs you can borrow to take out on the beach which means a big savings. The gardens in the court yard are well maintained. Our biggest complaint was the difficulty we had reaching the office when we were making the reservation and then needing to change it. I had to call multiple times. So now we have their e-mail address to use for reservations that we may make there in the future. We saw a nice Gulf front renovated 1 bedroom unit that would be even nicer than our efficiency. We weren't able to look at any of the Villas unfortunately since they were all occupied while we were there. They have a lot of regulars who come back and stay a month at a time year after year so they are loyal to them and wouldn't let us reserve a unit for a week later next spring till their regulars came and had a chance to book if they wanted to.

We stayed four nights in a one bedded private bungalow right on the beach. Unfortunately the weather was awful so really pleased we were in decent accommodation rather than just one room. We had separate bedroom and a lounge with kitchen facilities. Very nicely decorated and a pleasure to be in. Beds comfy and the cleaning was fine. Margaret was good on the front desk and also was able to use the internet free of charge. Great location just a shame we hit poor weather. Would love to go back again to enjoy the great location in sun and enjoy the lovely pool and bbq!

Room Tip: Ask for the newly refurbished bungalows next door - they are truly gorgeous! Newly decorated and ju...

The good things. The beach, the pool and Margaret. The bad. Maid service, never knew when they were coming. Did minimal job of cleaning as floor was always dirty, towels, bedding, décor all old. No break in price if you wanted to book a month or longer. Rude guests and thin walls. Ice machine broke. Poor parking.

Room Tip: You get what you pay for.

Made a last-minute booking, just for a girl's long weekend getaway. Very pleasantly surprised with the efficiency we got. The grounds are lovely, the pool was quite nice, the bed was very comfortable, everything was very clean and tidy and, of course, the beach is beautiful. A DVD player would be a nice addition. Margaret was amazingly nice and helpful and made us feel very welcome. Great value for a place right on the beach, close to shopping and restaurants. If you like Cuban food, try the Floridian just a few blocks away. Fantastic Cuban sandwiches!
We'll definitely return.

The owners of Suncoast Motel purchased the lot next door & completely remodeled the whole property! Beautiful villas, cobblestone walk ways, beautiful landscaping, pool, covered patio area for eating, a variety of villas all remodeled with granite countertops, kitchenettes, right on the beach, great staff, very clean & close to everything! Shopping right down the street, many restaurants in walking distance or 10 minutes to John's pass boardwalk. The sunsets here are AMAZING!!! Enjoy the walks on the beach, the location & the great prices! This is our 4th time here & we love it more & more each time we come here! I recommend this to anyone looking to enjoy the Gulf on the beach. Love, love, love this place & the owners!

The title of this review says it all. We stayed in a suite overlooking the main road which was not ideal as it was a busy road. When we arrived the bin had not been empty and food had been left in the fridge from the previous occupant. We had to start by cleaning out the oven !!!. The owners also cut down on the number of lights in the acomodation with no centre light in the bedroom only one lamp. The closset stored an old dirty matress. The sheets and towels had all seen better days. If we had not been with friends we would have moved out. Could not wait until the 14 days were up. Will never be back.

We recently stayed at this little motel right on the Gulf. The rooms are very clean and the grounds are well kept up. The motel is close to the grocery store, restaurants, shopping. The local owners are super friendly and helpful. We will definitely go back
