We stayed for 6 nights at the sea chest motel with some friends and found the rooms and location great for a holiday especially if you have young children. The pool was warm and clean and the property was right on the beach.

We have been vacationing year after year in Treasure Island during (and before) the 4th of July holiday. Each year we take a walk along the boardwalk, and peruse the various other properties for a possible "change", yet in the past we always stuck with the same place. This year, on a whim, we chose the Sea Chest Motel based...

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...
