“Labor Day 2013”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

I was late booking for Labor Day and the only place that had reservations for the days I need was The Sea Chest. So we took. After arriving I realized we have found our HAVEN!! I will not book any where else. The front desk was friendly & helpful. The prices are beyond reasonable. And the rooms were super clean & cozy. Access to the beach was easy & their pool was clean & clear. I prefer this quaint place over the higher end more crowded resorts. I would recommend The Sea Chest to anyone!!! Will be calling again very soon!!!

Last weekend, we stayed in a newly renovated room (#103) at the Sea Chest Motel. This was my first experience at this motel, and it certainly won't be my last. The accommodations were more that I expected with a small but full kitchenette complete with stove, microwave, full size refrigerator, coffee pot, and all the utensils, dishes, pots and pans, needed to prepare a meal.
There was a comfortable pull-out sofa bed, queen size bed, flat screen TV, table and chairs, and new full bathroom. Everything was immaculate, including the pool and surrounding grounds. We even managed to cook out hot dogs on one of the gas grilles, after spending a wonderful day on the white sandy beach. The host and hostess were most accommodating, and obviously take a lot of pride in providing one of the nicest motels on the island. It's no wonder that several of their guests told us that they keep returning year after year.

We've stayed at Treasure Island for many years. Most of that time we stayed at the Arvilla, which I see now is rated #1. Well, the Arvilla was booked this year and we ended up staying here at the Sea Chest. What a pleasant surprise to find this motel even better! They keep the place very clean. My wife and I are picky about such things and this place suited us just fine. You could tell the room we stayed in had recently been renovated. All in all, a great stay!!! We'll surely be back to Treasure Island again. When we do, it will be the Sea Chest for us.

My family stayed in a large apartment (123) recently after seeing all the great reviews and after staying there myself I am left scratching my head at the other reviews. The room size was great however I can't believe that the room was renovated recently...It looked like a few things had been updated but not the majority of the bathroom or kitchen. The beds seemed to be very old and one of them sloped at a downward angle making it very uncomfortable. The mold growing in the air conditioner in the bedroom and the smell it caused was terrible. The worst however is the noise from the units surrounding you especially from above. The bedroom of our unit appeared to be under the living area of the unit above us and there were numerous nights (3 in a row) that my family ended up out in our living room to escape all the stomping and running of feet that went on until almost 2:30 in the morning. The pool and the surrounding grounds are quite well kept. The beach is beautiful especially at sunset. The staff seemed friendly but indifferent. Parking wasn't a problem for us because we asked about it at check-in.

Room Tip: Ask for the second floor!!!

Even after reading all the great reviews i was still blown away by the size of the room we had. My husband and I have been vacationing at Treasure Island for yrs and this place by far was the best . We had room 102 the large apartment , and by large will sleep 6. The main bedroom had a queen and twin bed , living room had a large sofa bed and a small sofa bed . the dining area had a large table with 4 chairs with separate kitchen that had a full size refrigerator not one of those tiny under the cubbard ones that you can't fit much in . there was 3 large clothests one in main bedroom another in living room that had a extra drawers and ironing board but you need your own iron. also another large closet located in hall leading to bathroom. this hall also had another vanity sink which was a great bonus. there was 2 flat screen tvs one in living room other in bedroom. Livnig room also had a desk for your laptop and just ask at desk when you check in for free wifi code . there was also 2 comfy chairs by the large front window . The pool was heated fresh water and very large . And plenty of water toys for all. And just like inside the outside was a clean and neat as a pin. We live on the east coast of florida but always loved the gulf and the beautiful beaches of the west coast . we are already making plans to come back to the Sea Chest soon.

Sea Chest is a great place for a family vacation. The rooms are newly remodeled, the housekeeping is immaculate, and the location is perfect. The office staff is very pleasant and professional. There is free wi-fi, a guest computer in the office, and laundry room with bathroom off the pool. And there are dozens of great places to eat along Gulf Blvd. We've been vacationing in Treasure Island for over 40 years and wish we found the Sea Chest sooner!

You couldn't ask for a better place to enjoy a week with the family. A beautiful vacation destination that has the best of everything. Great staff, excellent service, updates and improvements every year we return. You know the place is excellent when guests tell you they have been vacationing there for forty plus years. We have been guests for 8 years and year nine has been scheduled!
