Mardi Gras Motel
Ranked #28 of 48 Hotels in Treasure Island
Reviewed September 6, 2007

I rented an efficiency suite at The Mardi Gras for 4 days, 2 of which I was joined by my adult daughter and her sons, ages 15 and 10; the last 2 nights was just my husband and myself.
The Mardi Gras is located just across the street from the beach, not more than a one minute walk! There is a convenience store next door and an ice cream/sandwich shop just across the street before the beach. Some restaurants and shops within walking distance, John's Pass Village about 3/4 mile south of the Mardi Gras which has nice shopping, great restaurants and parasailing, jet ski rentals, dolphin cruises, etc. Plenty to keep kids occupied for a day.
The Mardi Gras grounds are not elegant but are well kept and clean. There is an on site laundry. The pool was very clean and sparkly, landscaped with lovely tropical foilage. The kids really enjoyed the pool in the evening.
Our efficiency was spotlessly clean, smelled fresh and the kitchen well equipped for our needs. The main room was large enough for 2 double beds, a foldout sofa, night stand, large dresser and a comfy chair. The television was large and had a DVD player and hook ups for video games. The kitchen (full sized) was a seperate room and large enough to accomodate the dinette set. The bathroom was extremely clean and modern with plenty of shelf room for toiletries. Also, a large closet to store baggage, sacks of souveniers, etc. We were 2nd floor so had direct view of beach between the hotels across the street. The owners were very accomodating but not intrusive. Our unit went for $55 night base price ($5 extra each person over double occupancy, but 12 and under stay for free...unbeatable price.)
The unit was plenty roomy for 5 and could easily accomodate 6.
The beach was beautiful, clean and uncrowded, the sunsets just spectacular.
All in all, this little place is an excellent value, great location, comfortable and very clean. We will definitely return next summer for a lengthier stay.

Very friendly place to stay. Owners live right there and are up early making sure the pool and the grounds are clean. Washer and dryer at the motel for guests was an added help. Great restaurants close by. Other visitors and owners very friendly and made you feel welcome and like you had "come home." Beds comfortable, room clean, and small refirgerator in the room an added treat. I did not have a full kitchen, however, the other people I went with did and it was fully
stocked will all the pots and pans etc.

Immaculate, quaint(did I just say that), and unbelievably low priced. The family that owns this property lives on site, so they have a stake, and make sure that their guests are taken care of. Its location is great, not on the ocean but directly across the street from it via a short walk. This place is tops for families/couples on a budget or not and who would prefer to spend their money elsewhere. Lets face it, on Treasure Island, you should only be using your room to sleep in anyway.

We stayed at the Mardi Gras Motel September 2005 and were pleasantly surprised with this little treasure.
There are 9 units in total. Our room was on the ground floor by the pool. We were with two small children who took full advantage of the pool.
Being across the street from the beach was not a disadvantage at all since the kids were kept busy at the pool.
This hotel is exremely clean and pleasant with the palm trees and plants in the terrace area.
We would highly recommend this motel to anyone!!
