Perfect location for the beach. A mistake on our part with the booking was dealt with in a very understanding way by the hotel manager and we are very grateful. Good value for money, comfortable and clean, ok you could say they are due a bit of a refurb but the accommodation was perfect for us for a short stopover... More

Checking out today after a four night stay and we loved it! Yes it's a little tired in places, but this place stinks of honesty and we would not hesitate in coming back. Great place, great people and great location. Loved it!

We stayed at the Malloy for a couple of days at the end of July and we have to say it does need some work on the rooms. We arrived just before 6.45 having run into traffic jam after traffic jam on our way from Busch gardens - tried to phone the place but got no answer but thought "no... More

This is absolutely the most horrible place to stay! We booked it online based on the beautiful pictures on the website but what a shock when we arrived! The so called lobby is small and dingy and just about 3 steps away from the 'pool'; which by the way looks like an oversized bathtub. The room we were given was... More

My wife and I suckers for nice beaches. So when we went to Tampa for business, we wanted to check out the Florida sunset and the beach in that region, but didn't want to spend much in ways of hotel bill. Well, for the price, the Molloy was just perfect. This is apparently a German family owned business that takes... More

My wife's family began staying at the Molloy over 35 years ago. We come every year over the week of July 4th. We know the majority of the folks who stay that week, and we love the atmosphere that creates. The rooms aren't the greatest, and there aren't really any incredible amenities but it's great for us.

I stayed here with a friend and her two little girls. Our room was clean and it was definitely older but appeared to be looked after. We had read the reviews so we didn't come with high expectations. It met our expectation of being a good bargain for a beachfront motel. We were just a 3-4 minute walk from our... More
