“NOISY!!!!!”
Reviewed October 27, 2013

We stayed at this hotel and the traffic noise was horrific. I didn't get a good night's sleep all week. Couldn't wait to leave. Carpet had spots on it that we complained about but they never got cleaned when we were there.
For the price this place is not worth it. It isn't on the water and the pool is almost on the street.

Room Tip: Don't know. Maybe on the back............................

There is noise along Gulf Blvd. We are currently looking at installing sound-proof glass on the front side on the resort. Please know that the back side is very quiet with a lovely marina view. And yes, we are directly on the Intracoastal waterway, across the street from the beach, with only 100 steps to the Gulf of Mexico. We are also in the process of switching out all the flooring. Thank you for your review and we hope you will come back in the near future!

We have some good comments and bad comments from our stay in #411 at Madeira Bay Resort.

First the good. Great location. Easy one block walk to the public beach, where there is beautiful sand, shallow water, lots of shells. In addition, you are about 30 minutes away from Ft Desoto Park which is a great side trip for pretty beaches with few people. Many restaurants nearby, some good, some overpriced. Check the restaurant reviews. The deck was nice to sit out on and watch boats come in and out of the small marina.

Now the bad. The place is filthy. The rugs are so filthy that we kept are flip flops on inside, and my son and I could usually care less. It is ratty too, but a good shampooing would have gone a long way to clean it up. The furniture was also stained, although I have to say it was more firm and comfortable than some of the places I've stayed with our vacation club. The beds are alright, a little too soft for my liking but fairly comfortable. The tub in the bedroom is chipped. Everything is dated except some of the kitchen appliances that are newer. The kitchen is a little small, but reasonably well stocked. But I have to reiterate, this is the dingiest place I have stayed in the last 20 trips we've taken, and they don't clean up mid week. the average rating is based solely on location, view, and a decent bed and kitchen. No opinion on the people because I never saw them. The pool is too small for laps or any kind of swimming.

I might go again, but I would check some of my other options along the beach first.

We went the first weekend in October 2013 for a family vacation. When we first checked in attendant was rude and would not give us any info/help on where our second vehicle could park since we went with 2 families in a 2 Bedroom (only one parking pass issued). The rooms were dirty, things were broken, and the carpet was hard as pavement. My wife lost our room/pool key set 2 days into a 7 day vacation. We went to inquire at the front desk about it and they charged us $135 on the spot. $100 pool key and $35 room key. We had a 1, 2, and 3 year old in the room so the key could have turned up in the remaining 5 days the room was rented for. That's just highway robbery and complete disregard for your guests. It costs $2 to cut a key. Beautiful city but do not stay here.

I just returned from my third trip in a row to Madeira Beach. My husband and I stayed at our favorite place Madeira Bay Resort. The condo is very clean and comfortable. Since we were there during football season, we were able to enjoy watching games on the flat screen TVs! The condo has a washer/dryer, full kitchen, 2 full baths, living room, master bathroom, and balcony. I was here with two friends June 2012 and we had plenty of room. The location is wonderful. Many bars and restaurants all within walking distance, and of course the beach across the street. So relaxing sitting on the balcony in the morning, eating breakfast, and viewing the ocean. Staff is very friendly and helpful.
We look forward to coming back!

Room Tip: Condo 610 has a beautiful view of the beach and evening sunsets.

nice 2 bedroom condo across the street from the beach.Lots of room for the 4 of us.It has a full kitchen,so didn't have to eat out every day.The beds were comfortable and clean and the condo was nicely decorated.Very close to shopping and the beach.The condo has a small deck that overlooks the beach and street.On the back of the condo was a boat dock,on the waterway.The only problem was the pool small and in the parking lot.Nice place to stay for a short trip to beach.

Room Tip: Get a room on the top floors on the front of the Resort so you can see the beach

Got 2 units (timeshare)...met our needs, not the worst place we have ever stayed - but, by far not the best! Unit on 6th floor had a VERY musty smell, we didn't even use it. Unit on the 4th floor, didn't have a musty smell, but everything was dated (shower curtain stained/ripped)...not as "clean" and fresh as I'd like it to have been.
Pro's - great location, across the street from the beach, spa on-sight (great massage therapist - and full service salon & spa) All the luxuries of being in a condo, washer/dryer, full kitchen, 2 full baths, living room, master bedroom, balcony.
Cons - looks like entire unit needed a thorough "deep cleaning" & sweeping (especially in all room corners/under beds) DVD players not working, etc. Beds were not great quality...There is a pool on-sight also. I think this is a "pet-friendly condo"...it shows. Lots of stains.

Room Tip: Location is great, not the cleanest units.

This was our first family trip to the beach and i highly recommend to visit Madeira beach and stay at this condo! We could not have asked for a better place to stay! It was so nice and clean! The view was great and walking distance to everything. We can not wait to return for many more family vacations!
