Mardi Gras Motel
Ranked #27 of 48 Hotels in Treasure Island
Reviewed June 30, 2013

If your looking for a small cheap motel this may be for you. The owner lives on premisis and maintains the whole motel. The pool and surrounding lounge areas is definately the best part of Mardi Gras Motel. There are laundry facilities available. We stayed in room 3 next to the shower sign, directly in front of the pool, our room had 2 full beds (surprisingly very comfortable), fully equipt kitchen, bathroom, sofa, flat screen tv. We only paid $55 per night so we didnt expect a luxury suite, the furnishings are old and kind of a mish mosh of decor, we did not spend very much time in the room. My daughter enjoyed the pool and hunting the many lizards hiding in the greenery.

The bed linens were clean and crisp, we were brought fresh towels, garbage removed, and beds were made daily.

A few complaints; tiny sugar ants all over the room especially the kitchen (keep all food in fridge), not enough electric outlets, very limited parking, a little noisy at times due to the close proximity to the main road.

Room Tip: Ask to see the available rooms before choosing, they are all a little different.

The hotel is old, but the owners are very friendly and keep it cozy , nice, and clean. The lights at night are very pretty. We stayed in their smallest room, but it was clean and the bathrooms were very nice. It could use an extra mirror in the room, but for the price and location you cannot beat it. I loved the stay and will be back.

Spent ten days there for March break with my 2 kids.We had a kitchenette with two beds. It worked out perfect as we ate breakfast in the room and even BBQ one day. .The room was very clean and the other guest who treated my kids like their grand kids were amazing especially Fred .Pool was warm and the owners could not do enough for us or the other guest.

This is a lovely, friendly hotel/motel. Great location with clean rooms. The pool and pool area were kept beautifully clean. Staff/owners were very friendly and welcoming. We stayed for two nights, wanted to stay longer but had to move on. Would recommend this hotel to others. We would definitely stay here again when visiting Florida.
