The Sea Chest is by far my favorites motel in Treasure Island. This has been the third year that we have stayed at the motel. Th motel is right on the beach with lots of green palms around with shade. There is a big pool and a shuffle board and lots of ground for kids to play around. Our rooms...

Management response:

The parking lot has one space per room, without favoritism. We do not allow multiple parking spots for repeat guests. As you may be able to see from photos, Treasure Island has a very wide beach, and our property is as close to the ocean as allowed by building codes. Also, our laundry room features a very adequate full size...

This is my 5th weekend getaway to the beautiuful beach in Treasure Island. Had a very relaxing 3 days. Staff very friendly and helpful. Cleanest rooms I've seen in my worldwide travels. Great uncrowded beach. Taking your wine or beer in plastic or metal containers to the beach is legal! Will come back to the Sea chest again, soon!

Enjoyed almost every aspect of our visit - the mid-level room was very spacious, comfortable and well-appointed. Parking is extremely challenging, but with everything else more than meeting our expectations, we really just tried to look past that. Problem arose on check-out morning, however, that completely soured the entire experience there for us. My wife asked the Maria if we...

We apologize for the unpleasant incident with the staff. Our checkout time is 10 am and we did not have a set policy for a late checkout time, which has been remedied. The guest was originally told that their room would be the last one serviced by housekeeping which may occur anytime between noon and 1 p.m., but there was...
