Great weekend spent. Innkeepers couldn't have been more accommodating. Right across from the amazing beach. We had a very quiet efficiency in the back and the a/c blew cold. Great for the hot summers of Florida. We had a cookout in the patio area to end a perfect day.

Loved the Sea Star so much I had to return , stayed Christmas week and loved every day, ate Christmas dinner outside with the owners and other guests, they do this yearly. This is a retro type motel, it's not fancy and it's not $400 a night as lots of places are, it is well located and spotless and everything you could want is provided in the room . Bruce and Betty become your friend and they are wonderful Hosts . A small motel with 12/14 rooms and you park close her your room , 150 steps to the water and just a bit more for lots of great food choices. Will return again and again.

I wanted to surprise my Mom for her 70th birthday and Sea Star was my accommodation choice. I chose it for price and location. There were emails back and forth to shore up any details. Well, I get a call from the owner asking if we would accept an upgrade because the room we were supposed to get was rebooked by the same renters. Well, of course I said "Yes! I've never gotten a free upgrade!" When we arrived to our upgraded room, we were greeted by a baked birthday cake with candle and napkins included! Bruce and Betty Ann pay attention to details and have worked hard to include the little things. We were there in October and our room was clean, had all the extras for cooking (even had a crock pot and cookbooks), and had seasonal décor. Beautiful. We didn't want to leave. They recommended local food places and sites to see. We WILL be back.

Old lodging...dirty walls in kitchen and bathroom, beds are uncomfortable. As for the owners hospitality. We found them very rude. At first they seemed nice, offered to "help" unload our car. While we are private people we politely declined which seemed to cause offense to them. the very next morning, early, the owner "Bruce" was knocking on the door. I opened it with the chain on, he tried to step in, I advised we were all sleeping, he tried to step in again, the chain still on. I asked what did he need, he said for us to pay for the room. They had our deposit, normally you pay at check out, but whatever. I told him everyone was sleeping and can we do this in an hour or so. He said ok. We paid but every time we would say hi to them or try to engage in conversation they both were extremely rude. Claim to be Christians but whatever...didn't act it. We just ignored them after that. They seem very obtrusive and if you are private on who you let in your room and about your belongings they get offended...Our door only locked on the handle, deadbolt did not work, wind blew it open in the middle of the night...thank goodness for the chain...I would not go there again....or recommend to anyone we know....and we know a lot of people in Pinellas County...

Response from seastar1948, Owner at Sea Star Motel & Apts.
Responded Oct 15, 2016
We remember this particular weekend well. Hurricane Hermine was causing evacuations of the east coast of Florida. We had about 30 requests for our 9 available apartments. The people that had the cottage had 2 dogs, and we usually do not take multiple dogs but we made an exception and did not even charge for the dogs. We did not raise our rates due to the storm. When an additional guest came for 1 night we did not charge. We have had guests pay when they check in for 16 years same policy as previous owners. I did not seek payment on the day of check in as it was late. I requested it the next day at 11:30 am not realizing they would be sleeping. I responded please see me when it is convenient. As far as trying to get in the door when not wanted in the apartment that just does not make any sense. I was not offended when they did not want my help in unloading, many of our guests are older and we always try and offer assistance. The dead bolt works fine in accordance with AAA requirements. It is operated from the inside but outside it can only be operated by the control key. Betty Anne remembers interacting with this guest offering things to do in the area. other than that I don't remember seeing them outside of the apartment, so I had no opportunity to be "unfriendly" We realize that this particular weekend was a very stressful one for many of our guests. We were sold out and visited with many guests. I even bought one guest a dvd player so they could get movies. The plaster is very rough in the cottage and we will address the walls, Perhaps it is time for a new paint job. If a guest brings a problem to our attention, we always address it immediately. We have put back boards under mattress's and in some cases bought new mattress's. The Mattress's in the cottage were recently upgraded and we had not received any other complainants. We are an older facility and will always be that, upgrading and changing apartments goes on throughout each year. We have always tried to address any complaints that a quest would have to make their stay a good one.
