The hotel

Sat on the Intercoastal Waterway, the location near to the pristine sands of Madeira Beach, and just 4km from shopping and dining at John’s Pass Village makes this the ideal vacation spot to explore the length of the Gulf Coast of Florida. Whatever your plans for the day, start it with breakfast at The Bistro – offering a selection of delicious breakfast items without having to step outside. And you can end the day here too with classic American favourites on offer and a range of drinks to satisfy any craving. The rooms are spacious and well equipped, with a microwave available for you to heat up any leftovers you might have from dinner, and a balcony in many room types with views over the water. If you fancy a bit more space, upgrade to an Executive King rooms and enjoy the separate seating area to lounge about in after a busy day in St Pete’s and Clearwater.

We have stayed at this property a number of times due to it's excellent staff and convenient location. Shelli at the front desk and the staff in the dining room always provide excellent service.

The rooms are very nice, though a larger closet, more towel racks in the bathroom and body lotion would be nice improvements. I would have given a 5 Star Review except for the fact that no complimentary room upgrade was offered to a Marriott Bonvoy Titanium member even though upgraded rooms were available on line. Read less

While not on the beach, good location on the water with at least 3 restaurants and a Publix within walking distance. Parking is an extra cost, housekeeping needs more training and the pillows tend to go flat. Comfortably furnished, and nice room and hotel amenities including outdoor pool and hot tub.

While not on the beach, good location on the water with at least 3 restaurants and a Publix within walking distance. Parking is an extra cost, housekeeping needs more training and the pillows tend to go flat. Comfortably furnished, and nice room and hotel amenities including outdoor pool and hot tub. Front desk staff are wonderful, especially Brian and Shellie. Room is a little smallish, offset by nice sized bathroom and balcony. Takes a little creativity to find room for all your things and the mini-fridge is defintely mini. Enjoyed being here in this part of Mad Beach for a change. I would stay there again. Read less

A very nice property in a unique location. I had one of the balcony rooms shown in the photo, overlooking the marina and the water. The room was simply but adequately furnished, with plenty of lighting. Storage space was at a premium, and would have been inadequate with 2 or 3 people in the room. The bathroom was simply laid out.

A very nice property in a unique location. I had one of the balcony rooms shown in the photo, overlooking the marina and the water. The room was simply but adequately furnished, with plenty of lighting. Storage space was at a premium, and would have been inadequate with 2 or 3 people in the room. The bathroom was simply laid out. More places to hang towels and such are badly needed. It was a real treat to be in a hotel where the HVAC worked as it should and kept the temperature right where I wanted it at all times. Housekeeping was a bit hit and miss -- no service at all on one day, no new supply of coffee another. The outdoor pool was nicely heated, and ample towels were provided. All staff, from the front desk to the Bistro servers to the housekeepers, were unfailingly polite, friendly, and helpful. Read less

This is a wonderful place to stay in Madeira Beach! Located on the wide Intracoastal Waterway, it has stunning views from the poolside balconies and beautiful lobby of sunsets, many types of boats, the draw-bridge, coastal birds, and even dolphins!

This is a wonderful place to stay in Madeira Beach! Located on the wide Intracoastal Waterway, it has stunning views from the poolside balconies and beautiful lobby of sunsets, many types of boats, the draw-bridge, coastal birds, and even dolphins! It is in walking distance of Publix and several restaurants (Slyce Pizza Bar, McDonalds, and Angry Pepper—our favorite) and is a 5-minute drive from a public parking lot at Madeira Beach for walks along the Gulf. The customer service is outstanding, with top-notch employees Bryan, Shelli, and others at the front desk, and two super nice Bistro breakfast employees who all sincerely care about helping the guests have a wonderful experience! Recognizing our Platinum Elite status with Marriott Bonvoy, they put us in amazing rooms and provided food and beverage credit. We stayed here for two trips already after reading the amazing reviews, and we look forward to staying here again on one of our many trips to the Tampa Bay area! Read less

This place is a total hidden gem! If you’re not familiar with the magic of the intercostal canal system in this area, this hotel is a great intro.

This place is a total hidden gem! If you’re not familiar with the magic of the intercostal canal system in this area, this hotel is a great intro. Easy access to the best of St. Pete but you don’t feel like you’re trapped in the mess of tourist traffic. Ours was a full western view balcony, facing the direction of the gulf and overlooking the canal, pool, and fabulous courtyard. A little confusing to find the front desk the first time arriving but it’s easy to get your bearings after you do. Staff was fabulous, especially Brian (a solution based thinker who really pays attention to details) and the bar/restaurant food is exceptionally good. Indoor and outdoor seating, right off the lobby which is super guest friendly with everything you need all in one area. Great use of common area space. Courtyard and pool area is amazing. Rooms are nice, clean, comfortable and the property location is perfect. Short walk to restaurants, grocery, liquor store, and a longer walk across the causeway to Madeira Beach. The place is surrounded by docks full of lovely boats for people watching and it’s cool to see the bridge open up to let larger vessels through. Close to everything but just far enough away to not feel suffocated by it all. Highly recommend this hotel! Read less
