“Hidden Gem on Treasure Island”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2012

We stayed at the Cheri Lyn Motel 8 nights earlier this month.
Our room had been renovated and we had a great experience.

The room was clean, stove, fridge and microwave included.

Kitchen was well stocked with pots, pans, glasses and cutlery.

Air conditioning worked fine, great tv with lots of channel

Gas bbq available on site, pool and deck brand new !

Great value, great service, and a great stay!

Room Tip: Efficiency apartment is great if you wish to cook at home.

This was my second visit to Cheri Lyn, and once again, they have far exceeded my expectations! If you are looking for a spotless, comfortable and down to earth place to stay on your vacation, this is IT! The rooms are spacious and include a nice size kitchen, which is perfect for putting together breakfast and a "to-go" lunch for the beach.
The motel grounds are perfectly kept, and there is ample outdoor seating to sit and chat. Inside the office, you're always greeted by smiling faces and the most adorable dog!
I simply cannot say enough great things about Trish, Daniel and David.... they went WAY beyond in helping to make my moms b-day a memorable one! I wish each of you a lifetime of success with your business....just continue to do what you do!!!! See you soon!!!
* p.s. for those of you looking for a quaint cafe, check out the Sweet Sage Cafe, two towns over in N. Redington. They are pet friendly, the staff is fabulous and the food is excellent!!!

Room Tip: I have stayed here on two seperate occasions...two different room locations....both were perfect!

When we first drove up my husband and I thought that it looked like a hole in the wall but THIS PLACE IS SO NICE! It is very close to the beach which is absolutely beautiful-access is just across the street. The sunset from the beach was breath-taking. We stayed in an efficiency with a kitchenette. It was very cozy but it could use some updating. It's really neat because the other guests almost become like part of your family and a lot of them are regulars. Staff is very helpful, friendly, and it's really cool that it is family-owned. We had such an enjoyable and relaxing stay. You just can't beat the price and our family will surely go back again and again.

I came here yearly in the mid to late sixties, I thought I would recommend to my daughter 45 years later. Still the same name and motel, but the new owners have really stepped forward. It's cozy clean clean clean and nice guests. I tnink it's the best kept secret on treasure isle.

Room Tip: all good...I think they all over look the pool........

Our family was headed for Florida for a two week vacation in Nokomis outside Sarasota. While talking to my wife at home before we left, I told her about a motel on Treasure Island in Florida called the Cheri Lyn. It is a small beach motel with 24 rooms. I stayed there with my parents and grandparents in 1960. Just for kicks, I Goggled it while telling my wife “I am sure it is long gone.”
I was shocked, but it came up as still being in business and had good reviews from TripAdvisor. We had a few extra days before we took occupancy of our rental house in Nokomis, so we made reservations and stopped off.
We had a great time. A family bought the hotel about 2-3 years ago and has been renovating it. The hotel, which is family operated, formerly pink, is now yellow and most of its rooms have been newly renovated (they are nearing completion) and the pool has just been renovated as well. The grounds have also recently been newly landscaped.
We stayed in Room 35, on the second floor above the office. The room was nice: kitchenette with stove, dishes, full size refrigerator, table, microwave, etc. Nice new bathroom. The room also had two double beds, plasma TV, hardwood laminate floor and two easy chairs with footstool. Nice! The beach is just across the street.
You do hear some street noise in this room from Gulf Blvd. but you could get a room on the back of the hotel, which I would think would be quieter. The street noise did not bother us, however.
We had a great time. The hotel has a lot of regulars, both Florida residents and travelers from elsewhere, including England, which we met while spending the day at the pool. Many of the regulars come for weeks at a time and the British couple we met comes from Britain at least two times a year.
One thing about this hotel, within two hours, you know practically everyone if you hang at the pool. We got some great tips and played some great volleyball at the pool. The family that runs the hotel does everything they can to make their guests comfortable. And best of all, the rates are great. We have not stayed in a small “mom and pop” motel for years, and initially, I was a bit wary. But we are glad we stopped and we will be back!

Room Tip: Ask for a newly renovated room. They are just about done renovating all of their 24 rooms.
