“Funky, clean, and retro”
Reviewed June 9, 2013

The motel is as advertised and as reviewed on trip advisor. It is one of the older mom n pop style motels you find on Florida's back roads. As such, the facility is older but very clean. Linens are of average quality, bring your own toiletries. We stayed here for one night as we needed to be within walking distance of downtown Dunedin (yes..) and not too expensive (true...). The only bizarre component to the experience was their inability to take credit cards. I had to send in a deposit by check to reserve the room...and then paid cash for the balance. I'm sure it is to save on credit card fees for a small business but seriously....I would recommend this for a short term stay if you are planning to be in Dunedin for fun. They are dog friendly so this is key for all you travelers with pets.

We booked the Seaside Artisan as an overnight stay for a local beer festival, not really knowing what to expect. We were very pleasantly surprised upon arrival. It's like staying in someone's guest house. The room came with a full-featured kitchen and was very clean. It's definitely unique and doesn't have the cookie-cutter feel of the chain hotels.

It's extremely comfortable and that's what this family-run motel seems to be all about.

It's also convenient to downtown and Dunedin's three beer destinations. We would definitely stay there again. We had a wonderful stay.

"Old Florida" is a good description of this small hotel. It's not fancy, but the rooms are large, equipped with ful kitchens, well maintained and impeccably clean, and it's very convenient to visiting downtown Dunedin or hiking/biking the Pinellas Trail. Note there's no swimming pool if that's an important amenity for you.

The owners treat guests like visiting friends, and the guests treat each other like long-term neighbors. More than "pet friendly", I'd call it "pet welcoming". Including the welcome from the owners' two dogs.

No wi-fi, no business center, no fancy restaurant. No bar, either, but it's a short walk to several. I wouldn't want to work from here but it's a comfortable place to play tourist.

Fancy it's not, but fun and friendly it is. This is a family run hotel and they couldn't be better. From the minute we arrived they were helpful and went out of their way to make us comfortable. Our room was basic, but spotlessly clean with a full kitchen, AC and TV. This was our little rescue dog's first trip and he was made to feel welcome as well. It is centrally located. You can walk along the sound to downtown with all the restuarants. They gave us bikes to use on the Pineallas Trail which was across the street. Great little find. We loved it.

We enjoyed a week at the Seaside Artisan with our dog. The rooms aren't big but they are clean. The service isn't much but they are friendly. The atmosphere is very laid back and it would be difficult to beat the location.

It's not going to win any awards but we'd definitely go back.

Room Tip: Don't take the rates as fixed in stone -- call the owners and negotiate.

The room was clean, and as another person stated, somewhat dated. The kitchenette had everything I need although you have to supply even dishsoap. Bought a bottle and used about 4 drops so I left it, hopefully, for the next renter. I was uneasy staying there alone because the door to the room looked like people had tried to break in. There was a hole in the screen near the handle that opened the windows and the wood by the bolt was worn away. One night there was a loud commotion outside. Other than to pay the man, I never saw the owners.
