So clean and nice! Bedding and room colors so comfortable and inviting. The kitchen was stocked with everything we needed to prepare a home cooked (on the grill out back!) family meal. The staff from Kat to housekeeping were so accommodating! Will definitely be staying again and again. Beautiful grounds and location. Our little hideaway.

Super cute motel in a great, quiet neighborhood! Very clean, dog friendly, and surrounded by lots of fun places for day adventures. The motel staff are very attentive and so kind. I wish I could’ve stayed longer, and I can’t wait until my next visit!

We are snow birds from New Hampshire who have been going to the Mar Bay for a number of years. We stay in a room perfect for us and enjoy the wonderful service of Eddie and Rodney. The grounds are spacious, well maintained and quite serene. The property is close to the Tampa Bay Downs and to a number of wonderful restaurants and shopping. While we enjoy being just a mile from our son and his family, we also enjoy our 13 mile access to the beach. Phillipe Park, on old Tampa Bay, is just a few short blocks away. All in all, Mar Bay is our home away from home. You can't go wrong. PS - say hello to Midnight and Maxine.

I had a workshop to attend for 7 days and needed affordable accomodations. I was nervous booking a room at such a reasonable rate and could not have been more pleasantly surprised! The room was perfect, CLEAN, and had all of the accomodations of home! The staff went out of their way to make my stay perfect!

The kitchenette was perfect, there is even a gazebo, grill, and picnic area out back! The room was cleaned daily, they even did my dishes, and there are laundry facilities available! Plus complimentary internet!!!

I can't wait until I have to return in November! It's home away from home!

In late spring, 2011, my wife and I stayed three nights in the Marbay's one-bedroom suite, equivalent to a full apartment. Our hosts were friendly, consistently helpful, and informative about the area. We found the premises scrupulously clean, well-maintained, and indeed far more comfortable than other, more pretentious places where we stayed on that trip. I'll note specifically the new and firm mattress on the bed, the well-equipped kitchen, generous living room, more-than-adequate air conditioning and ceiling fans, so necessary in the Florida heat.

The motel is in a quiet residential area, located centrally between beaches and the St. Petersburg and Tampa urban areas, though about 20 miles from either city. There is a pleasant county park about a half-mile away, and a very reasonable choice of restaurants in downtown Safety Harbor. (Off-topic this, but try Enver's Paradise for simple and tasty dishes.)

I've stayed at the Mar Bay several times now. Father and son are pleasant and professional, friendly and helpful. They're accommodating, the rooms are clean, well-maintained and quiet. This is a small motel with lots of green grass near the small highway and not on the main drag of loud traffic but very close to necessary amenities. Our room was not huge but was roomy enough with one twin bed and one double. They have other floor plans I think. There is a kitchenette with full-size fridge, microwave, table with chairs, dishes, etc. Wi fi is available and the big tv, full tub and shower (not to mention water pressure) is all that could be desired. Would easily recommend.

We just stayed at the Mar Bay in October and by we I mean we took up practically every room! It's our second time and were able to see that they not only go out of their way to keep in EMACULATE, the owner's used to own a janitorial services, hello! but they also continually renovate to keep things fresh. It's has all of the coziness of home without any of the worry. There isn't a sense that there's a staff around, they just give you the keys and let you make yourself comfortable, while still being just a phone call away. I love, LOVE the Father and son owners Eddie and Rodney. They give us everything we need with the utmost professionalism and warmth.

We stayed for a week from the 6th of February and found the hotel to be very clean and extremely practical. We ended up with the smallest apartment as that was all there was left but found this to be much better than any hotel room. The room was well equiped as was the kitchen which was quite separate, no fridge or microwave in the bedroom here. We had free high speed internet and there was a guests laundry room for those who wished to use it. Rodney and Eddie are so friendly and accomodating it genuinely was a home from home. I would highly recommend this place to anyone and certainly will use it again on any future visit to Clearwater.

We stayed here which will soon be 8 nights while visiting relatives. The room was recently refurbished. The shower is tiled and has a hand held sprayer. The single sink is finished with a marble counter. There is two deco style chairs with corner table as a sitting area.
The king size bed has 6 pillows two of which are body size. The mattress is firm, a flat screen TV with remote and cable channels. The kitchenette has a full size fridge, toaster, microwave, coffee maker, and a selection of flatware, dishes and cups for two. The furnishings, lamps, and decor are tastefully done. Wood shades on the windows and a newer a/c unit. The kitchen is well equipped and serves us well. They make the bed daily and empty the trash. The owners are nice and accommodating.
We are pleased and will definitely return.
