“would definitely go back”
Reviewed June 30, 2013

This was a quick weekend escape since we just live an hour inland. We have stayed at another motel and a condo in the exact same area previously. For our money's worth this was definitely the best bet for just two nights. First of all I like the fact that you can just stay for a night or two. We ended up getting 4 different rooms. I definitely would recommend the efficiency over the regular room especially since it is only a $5 difference. The rooms was glistening clean. Although we did not use the kitchen they were well stocked if you needed to cook..Each room was a little different in appearance but I was impressed with all of them. Each room had a little table and two chairs in front of them to relax. Pool area and courtyard were very appealing. Front office person was very friendly and eager to please. One pillow was little hard. Our bathroom sink was a little small since it had no ledge. Our A/C unit was a little too noisy for me at night but I don't think the other rooms had the same problem. But I would go back in a heartbeat.

us girls stayed here at Cheri Lyn Motel and it was excellent. Clean friendly and easy to get to the beach. Look out I'm coming back. I enjoyed my vacation. I would give this top billing. Right across the street was a trolley and there free yes free cab rides. the sunsets were out of this world. the owner's were right on site at all times in fact i looked myself out of my room no problem they were right there. there was a game room outside shuffle board and the pool was very very clean. the only problem with me was it wasn't pet friendly, i would have like to have taken my dog.

Room Tip: I stayed upstairs in room 25 nice and quite.

Let me start with the staff. They are so sweet and attentive. We had never stayed at treasure island and was leary about renting.
The hotel is lovely, very clean and the grounds are kept immaculate. Its an older hotel which has been renovated wonderfully. Our room was on the ground floor and had a full size kitchen. The full size beds were very comfortable and the updated bathrooms were great too.
We are a family of 4 and the room was fine.
The hotel is across the street from the beach but not a big deal at all.
Would definitely return.
I only wish it was pet friendly

Room Tip: We were on the ground floor, but our friends room upstairs was just as nice

We read the reviews and felt pretty good about what we booked, however until we arrived there was a little doubt. That was immediately put to rest on arrival. The owners have done a fantastic/excellent job on preserving Florida history. The pictures from others are exactly what we arrived to. The room was very clean and modern and comfortable. The Cheri-Lyn is located directly across the street from amazing beach, the pool area of the motel is in excellent condition and well maintained; it's within walking distance to numerous restaurants and shops, and Johns Pass. Other reviewers have commented on it being a gem, lovely etc, very accurate. We definitely will return.

In fairness, although not an issue for us, Gulf Blvd is the main road along the coast seeing a lot of traffic that creates some noise. Others commented that this was an issue, I remind all that this applies to all accommodations along this route. This noise never really entered our room due to a/c running and when outside by the pool etc, we never really even noticed it.

We just got back from a great weekend at Cheri Lyn Motel. The motel is VERY clean. The owners are always on site and are very friendly and willing to help in any way they can. Loved seeing Shadow and Lucy too. The motel is right across the street from beach access which makes it very convenient. Can't wait to come back.

My husband and I stayed in the Cheri Lyn for 2 weeks in January 2012 and returned again for 5 weeks over Christmas 2012/2013. We were more than happy on our first visit so didn't consider staying anywhere else. It is great value for money, as we did compare other motels on our first visit. We found it clean and comfortable. The owners; Trisha, Dan and Dave are on site and are always friendly and ever ready to assist in any way they can. It was a very homely place to stay and we easily made friends with some of the other holiday makers. There must be something special about the place as many of them have been coming back for years upon years. It is beside a junction which may not suit everyone but we got used to it. The rooms are quite large and have been renovated recently. The motel is just across from the beach with easy access to shopping by car or trolley bus.
