Carousel is clean, comfortable, convenient

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I just spent 3 weeks [Feb-March 2015] in Redington Shores at the Carousel Motel. We enjoyed both the motel and the area and are planning to go back next year.

The Carousel is an old-style motel from many years ago. It is a small, one-storey facility. The owner, Judy, lives on the premises and is very friendly and helpful. She works hard and keeps the place clean and nice. She has refurnished and updated the units.

The location is conveniently located to many places in walking distance. This was important because we did not have a car. You can walk to the beach from the motel in about 3 minutes. There are restaurants in walking distance. To go further afield you take the Suncoast Trolley which runs between St. Petersburg and Clearwater, with many stops, including one right outside the motel.

Special attractions:

Suncoast Seabird Sanctuary is a 10 minute walk either along the beach or Gulf Boulevard. They rescue and rehabilitate local birds and admission is free.

Beach yoga right on the beach next to the motel. I was able to do yoga 3-4 times a week and it was wonderful. [beachyogapinellas.com]

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I just spent 3 weeks [Feb-March 2015] in Redington Shores at the Carousel Motel. We enjoyed both the motel and the area and are planning to go back next year.

The Carousel is an old-style motel from many years ago. It is a small, one-storey facility. The owner, Judy, lives on the premises and is very friendly and helpful. She works hard and keeps the place clean and nice. She has refurnished and updated the units.

We had an efficiency which was one large room with a separate alcove for the large bed and dresser and closet. The kitchenette had everything needed for simple meals and snacks. The unit would also work for a couple and a child. The WiFi was reliable; I used it frequently for work.

The location is conveniently located to many places in walking distance. This was important because we did not have a car. We flew into Tampa, which is a 30-minutes taxi ride from the Carousel. The motel is as close to the beach as one could be without being actually on the beach. It is on the beach side of Gulf Boulevard and you can walk to the beach from the motel in about 3 minutes.

Across the street is the Friendly Tavern and Restaurant [not the chain one] and there are other eating places in walking distance. Also across the street is a 24-hour 7-11 and coin Laundromat.

To go further afield you take the Suncoast Trolley which runs between St. Petersburg and Clearwater, with many stops, including one right outside the motel. The trolley links up with the main bus system, PSTA, the Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority.

Special attractions:

Suncoast Seabird Sanctuary is a 10 minute walk either along the beach or Gulf Boulevard. They rescue and rehabilitate local birds and admission is free.

Great Place

  • 5 of 5

A very nice and relaxing stay. Well maintained rooms and excellent hospitality. The location is just right, in the middle of everywhere to go, next to the beach but slightly away from the crowds. All the amenities we needed were right there with sunshine too. This is our second stay here and we plan on returning.

The efficiency room was simple and immaculate

  • 5 of 5

The property is located on Gulf Blvd. It is a short walk to the public beach access, and it is nestled in with a few other houses and businesses. There is a great park with nice slides, swings, volleyball net, covered picnic tables and grills just a few steps down Gulf Blvd. It is a great location for kids. The property looks like a motel from the 1970's that has been updated and manicured to be esthetically pleasing. The landscaping and courtyard are simple and attractive. The efficiency room that we stayed in was small, yet we (2 adults and a preschooler) were fine. The best part is that the room, kitchenette, bathroom and linens were clean. There is clearly no smoking allowed in the rooms! Thank You! I could tell that the bedspreads were freshly washed and had a pleasant smell. The bed linen had a high thread count; it was not the cheap stuff. The towels and kitchen towels were a bright white. The towels were thick as well. The kitchenette was well stocked for the three of us. The room had a small TV, and had WiFi access. Judy was around and available when needed, and she was so pleasant. I can tell that she takes pride in Carousel Motel, and she loves what she does. To sum it up, the room had all that we needed at a fair price. Perhaps the next time, we will try one of her larger units! The motel is not for someone who is going to nitpick at every little thing; it is for those who plan to enjoy the beach while having a super clean reasonable place to stay just steps away from the beach.

GREAT STAY AND GREAT BEACH LOCATION

  • 4 of 5

This is my third time staying at this property but the first time to stay in the full size one bedroom apt. It has a great big living/dinning area, king size bedroom and nice bathroom. Full size appliances in the kitchen. The locate is great too. A short walk to the beach and plenty of restaurants in the area. The Beachside right next door is ideal and very good. You can always count on Judy, the owner, for any help you may need. I have recommend this property to my friends and family and I know they had enjoyed their stay too. Thank you Judy for keeping up the property - see you again soon.

Excellent stay.

  • 5 of 5

This was a great little place. It was clean and neat. The owner, Judy, was very responsive to any of our needs or request. You can't get any closer to the beach. unless you are staying right on it.
