I wanted to surprise my Mom for her 70th birthday and Sea Star was my accommodation choice. I chose it for price and location. There were emails back and forth to shore up any details. Well, I get a call from the owner asking if we would accept an upgrade because the room we were supposed to get was rebooked... More

Old lodging...dirty walls in kitchen and bathroom, beds are uncomfortable. As for the owners hospitality. We found them very rude. At first they seemed nice, offered to "help" unload our car. While we are private people we politely declined which seemed to cause offense to them. the very next morning, early, the owner "Bruce" was knocking on the door. I... More

We remember this particular weekend well. Hurricane Hermine was causing evacuations of the east coast of Florida. We had about 30 requests for our 9 available apartments. The people that had the cottage had 2 dogs, and we usually do not take multiple dogs but we made an exception and did not even charge for the dogs. We did not... More

We really wished we could have stayed longer! The location is perfect... Indian Rocks beach access is right across the street. The owners are so kind and helpful. They let us borrow their wagon and beach chairs for when we walked down to the beach. They also provided us with a roll away bed for our daughter, which was so... More

Stayed for 5 days and couldn't have been happier! VERY reasonable rates, CLEAN, QUIET, WELL KEPT room (efficiency). Beautiful area for walking the pups. Dog park close, lots of restaurants, bag of treats (for the dog!) when checking in. I live in Tampa, and plan on making this my "GO TO" beach place!

Sea Star is a great value and the staff couldn't have been nicer. This is an old school FL property directly across the street from the beach, which is less sandy and quieter than being directly on the beach. The rooms aren't fancy but they are super clean and comfortable. The little kitchen was surprisingly well stocked with utensils. Realizing... More

A big thank you to all of our guests that have reviewed the Sea Star. We have many repeat guests, and are very grateful. I want to retire and sit on the beach, but Betty Anne says we belong at the Se Star so I compromise, we will be here for a long time, Bruce (assistant cleaning person) and owner. More

I love Indian Rocks beach and I love the Sea Star!!! I want to live there!!!!! A short walk across the street and you are on the beach. There are delicious restaurants very close and within walking distance. I love to seashell and there are many to be had! And you can even bring your pet!

Our first stay at Sea Star was so comfortable that we are already planning our next. The owners are very nice and accommodating. We stayed in a one bedroom with a nice size living room. The dining room table sat 6. Plenty of space to spread out and feel comfortable. The furniture is a little older but plenty comfortable. The... More

What a nice place for a short,local getaway. The motel is reasonably priced in the off season, clean,quiet,comfortable,and a bit remnicient of old Florida. The towels were fluffy,the bed comfy,and the beach just across the street. We will stay here again.

My review is not as good as the others. There's a reason We liked the interesting, eclectic grounds, the friendly owners and other guests, the great location, the beach supplies that were made available to us.
