Just when you want to say something nice about this place, it gives you a reason to say something bad. The owners use this property's proximity to the beach as an excuse for lousy upkeep. Good: Room 1A on the second floor had its own private stairway and landing. Bad: Burnt out lightbulb in front meant walking up and down... More

The pool was exceptionally clean & right outside our door, The staff was extremely friendly and helpful about the area and places to visit.

My son and I stayed for a couple of nights. Our family lives in St. Pete and we often take off for weekends. Great location. Walking distance to the beach and everything else. Clean pool. It was very quiet the nights we were there. Can get a bit noisier as people like to hang out at the little bar but... More

Stayed 3 nights. Booked thru Booking.com at short notice. Location is right on the (clean, quiet perfect white sand) Gulf beach on Treasure Island. Its about 10 min walk along the beach up to the "downtown" area. Our apartment was clean, comfortable, and plenty big enough for two people. It would have been "cosy" for four (but incredible value for... More

Thank you so much for your comprehensive review. There are plenty of renovations going on which can be a little noisy at times, so we apologize. Ultimately, we believe guests will be extremely pleased with the new flooring, paint, and large flat screen tvs. Thank you for staying with us and we hope to see you again soon! More

My daughter and I stayed here for two days. It has become our favorite place to go for a beach getaway. Comfy beds, close to the beach, nice pool, kitchen is equipped with most all you would need. Very nice owner. Nice staff. All in all good place to stay. We look forward to coming back.

The staff was friendly but didn't hover. The room was very clean, beds very comfortable. This is a small older hotel and gives you that old time Florida feel. Great location - walking distance to many places. The other guests were super friendly - invited us in on their card game. Families there from Louisiana and Alabama using the barbecue... More

“The only change I would make is a different light bulb in the bathroom vanity - florescent saves money but makes putting make-up on difficult. A minor inconvenience. If we wanted to live in FL I would live at The Molloy!!!!”
