Kathy M, General Manager at Swashbuckler Motel, responded to this review

As our rooms are updated and modified to better serve our guests , the process sometimes presents a confusing presentation. The mattress and bed sets purchased for our rooms are all new and not reconditioned. This particular rooms mattress was being switched out and was left in the rain while new one was being delivered. Hence the unusual odor. A... More

Stayed there...no phones in the room, way to over priced for what you get. No linen service at all...bugs all over...and to top it off if you drink you can't have a open beer outside..it has to be in cup or whatever so no-one can see it..drug dealers every where...the pool is nasty...has mold in it...

When customers inquire about accomadations we make every effort to inform them of what we provide in the rooms and what we do not. We are a comfortable , clean and small motel. Our rooms do not have phones. Should a guest be without a phone we have a designated phone in the office for guests. We strive for safety... More

We came across this motel by accident, after trying so many, we just stopped and the lovely lady said she just had a cancellation. We took it.... More

I stayed at the Swashbuckler in August of 2014. It was a great place to stay. There were several different types of units to choose from. I believe all had some sort of kitchen/kitchenette in them.The unit i stayed in was built like an apartment with a separate bedroom, kitchen and bathroom and all were very clean with nice hard...

We are long term residents of Pinellas and can't believe we are living on the beach at such an unheard of price! DJ is the friendliest owner. Very well kept, bright sunny room with a back door, window in every room perfect location. I can't believe our luck highly recommended! Rich, Anna and 3 month old Mia

Our two week stay was from April 21 to May 5, 2012. Rich, the manager, was right there for any assistance needed and did a linen exchange after the first week. Both... More

Full kitchen and lovely decor I enjoyed my stay . Helpful staff and the other guests were very nice. Quiet. No one bothered me ever, but when... More

The place would have been great if it wasn't for long-term guest having domestic fights all night long.

My husband and I stayed at the Swashbuckler the entire month of February, 2011, and I can't imagine that we would have had a better experience anywhere else. Our apartment was well-furnished, extremely clean, and provided the ammenities that made us feel at home. From beach chairs, towels, and umbrellas, to a well-equipped kitchen, to clean linens whenever we desired... More
