I stayed here for two nights with my toddler. It was better than I imagined. The room was great. Very spacious and had everything we needed. It really had that old florida feel, as did the courtyard. We spent quite a bit of time out there while my son played with his cars and trucks in the grass. It was about a 1 minute walk to the public beach parking area and access, just around the back of the motel. The owner, Judy, also has plenty of beach chairs, umbrellas, and beach toys around back that you are free to bring down with you. There is a wonderful bar and grill right next door. This was a great motel, best place I could find to stay for the price, and we will definitely be back

Room was clean and comfortable. Great location to walk to the beach. Beach towels were provided and there were also beach chairs and umbrellas there for you to borrow. The owner, Judy was very helpful and made our stay pleasant. We plan to go there again.

The absolute best bargain in Florida. The owner, Jitka (Judy) is a fantastic host. She is always willing to go out of her way to accommodate guests needs and exceeds their expectations. She is active in creating a friendly atmosphere/culture for all the guests. We wouldn't consider staying anywhere else in Pinellas County.

Room Tip: Rooms 1 & 2 are sunnier but closer to street. Room 9 is noisier from the restaurant next door.

My wife and I had a great time and made many friends at this classic “Mom and Pop”. The owner was wonderful and attended to everything that you would hope for. The location was great and the price was reasonable. If you want easy access to Gulf Beaches at a reasonable price, try the Carousel Motel!

It's absolutely one of the best places I have ever stayed! Very cute and quaint. Rooms were very clean, close to some really good restaurants. Judy makes you feel very welcome and anything you may need she will help you with beach chairs, beach towels even helped me out with some sun screen and after sun lotion. The sun trolley stops right out front. There is a laundry mat maybe a half block away. I know I will defenitly go back!

We had truly great stay at Jitka’s motel. Nothing was a problem from making the reservation through extending our stay. The place is super clean and the location is hard to beat. Amazing beach is just 200yards away and there are plenty of beach chairs & umbrellas to borrow from the motel. Short drive to St Pete or Clearwater. We would go back in a heartbeat.

Great small motel close to the beach. The manager was awesome and helpful with anything you need. This is like an old Florida mom and pop motel. The rooms are small but have a full kitchen with everything you need to cook with. The beach is very close.

Small motel. Clean convenient and everything you need nearby. BBQ next door. Pizza across the street ice cream shop 7-11. And friendly tavern right across street. No high rises adjoining. Judy the host was awesome. No intrusive cleaning schedules. The beach is right behind motel 2 min away from water. Sat outside my room watching the night life. I recommend frog pond restaurant about a mile south. Great food. They close around 2pm. Bus stops out front. Try the beaches in this area instead of Clearwater. Some street parking to let you have access to less populated areas.

This place was perfect. The price was perfect. Literally 1/3 the cost of everywhere else, and it has direct access to the beach. Although obviously an older motel, the room had every amenity needed, from a hair dryer to a kitchenette with dishes and silverware. The motel even provided beach towels, beach chairs and umbrellas. Great restaurant next door, and a 7-11 and ice cream shoppe across the road. Extremely convenient location.

This motel was perfect for us. Next to public beach and an easy walk. Laundry and 7-11 across the street. Courtyard with grill and plenty of seating for friends to gather. Host is available on site at all times to meet your needs. Great restaurant right next door. Seating right outside your door to catch morning sun!
