My parents and I stayed at Satellite Motel while visiting my sister last week. We found the motel Very clean inside and out, which is very important. Prior to our stay, my brother & sister-in-law were down in the area and were able to check out the rooms prior to our stay. Thank you, Barbara for your assistance!! The Staff was very friendly and absolutely helpful. Our first experience when we arrived, we found the office closed at 5pm. We were a little nervous because we never ran into an office closed before, but thankfully a staff member (Matt) was still inside who came to the door to help us check-in and help get us settled! Thanks Matt!! Due to travelling we did not think of checking our emails for the instructions based on what to do if arriving later then 5pm...but Thankfully it All worked out!! We would Highly Recommend Satellite Motel!! A matter of fact, my mom found some couples who stay Annually and to be honest, we hope to do the same!! Thank you, Satellite Motel Staff for making our stay a delight!!

We just returned from our trip in warm Florida where we stayed at Satellite Motel and I have to admit that our vacation could not have been better. Satellite Motel offers many great advantages and one of those was that it is located across the street from the beautiful beach. Easy access allowed us to relax by the beach any time we wanted. Therefore, it is a perfect motel for people looking to spend lots of time by the ocean. We also spent a lot of relaxing time by the motel's pool and common area. We had a great time at the hotel because of the great atmosphere, accommodation and nice people who also stayed at this place. Moreover, the rooms and the whole place in general was very clean and well maintained. Without any hesitation I will recommend Satellite Motel to anyone that is looking to have relaxing vacation in Florida and can't wait to go back!

We loved it at Satellite when the last owners owned it 2020 they treated us with respect and it wasn’t about the all mighty dollar great price good location. They gave the new owners our info because we booked again for Dec 2021 to Jan 2022 . I called Dec 11 to confirm our stay for Dec 22 arrival to find out they lost our booking and and no longer have a room for us . Funny they still had our phone number. And there price per week went from $450. To 1500. So we had to scramble to find a place with our plane leaving in 10 days already paid for our rental car . You may have remodeled but thanks for screwing us and not even giving us a kiss. KARMA has away way of paying you back . Guess we’ll never go back. Cheri Lyn Motel and Sea Chest Motel are your best bet if you want honest friendly accommodations at a good price .

We are sorry that you have these feelings towards us as new owners. We did our best to transfer all existing hand written reservations and guest information over to our company. If we had incomplete information or were unable to contact guests where we only had a phone number for to confirm the reservation, chances are we did not have enough details to complete a booking. We hope that you will be understanding and be careful to check more frequently on your advance bookings going forward. Not all sellers let future guests know they have sold for various reasons and these types of things occur. We sincerely apologize that your reservation information did not transfer over and assure you it was not personal nor intentional. Best of luck to you.

I got here as a last minute trip. from the first phone call . To the day I checked out. You could not have asked for nicer people. I was told that they were remodeling a couple of the rooms at a time. That they Apologize in advance. We'll they were working on the Room next to mine but you never new it. was very quiet and relaxing. The Rooms were very clean . The people staying there all seemed to be regular visitors. the Free shuttle from the island takes you were ever you don't want to walk. But the Beach is across the street You are just blockes away from great food and night life. the Canal flows out back. I can't say enough. My only fear now is people readiness and not being able to get a room the next time.

We have been staying at this property for several years, although it has been 2 years since our last stay do to the pandemic. The property has new owners, as of this summer, but the it is as nice as always. It's mot new. But clean and great service!!! We stayed 3 days with 2 other couples that had equally great experience. They are in the process of remodeling the rooms so it will just get better!

went to the satilite inn because had wonderful reviews. Found out new ownership as of July 1st. Place is very pretty and quite. Liked that we could walk out to pool. Walk across street to beach. Conveniently located to things. The bad part is the management. Not friendly at all. Really don't go out of way for anyone. Very rude and act as if don't even care that your there. Can't talk to them because not pleasant. Been going to treasure island for years. I have stayed at numerous places. Always loved the warm friendly welcome at all places. Always felt as if treasure island was like a old mom and pop type of place very welcoming. It's a great place to visit but this time was disappointing because of the unwelcome rude attitude at Satilite Inn. I will return in the future to this wonderful town but will never stay at this motel again. Dont let your vacation be ruined there are to many other wonderful friendly other places to stay on the island. Sad to see this cute motel with good reviews get ruined because of bad management but it will.

It is under NEW OWNERSHIP and NEW MANAGEMENT as of July 2021. WIFI did not work even after letting management know. She seemed like she didn't really care. POOL WAS FULL OF HAIR spoke to management about it and got a lecture on how long she has been in hospitality and the rules. She had one family member checking out a day earlier. They paid for 6 nights and had already been in the room for 5 and only had 1 night left. She told they had to move to another room all because she had made a mistake and didn't want to have to change her spreadsheet (her exact word). Bad part is I spoke to her 4 times before our arrival date and she still did not get it right. We were not the only guest having issues with management. Spoke to the new owner about our issues, he acted like he didn't really give a flying rats a%# and made no effort to resolve the situation. HAVE NEVER HAD ISSUE UNTIL NOW and we have been going to the Satellite for several years. Will definitely NOT be going back!

We loved this place - very laid back and welcoming atmosphere, right across from the beach and sparkling clean perfect temperature pool. The room was spotless and refreshed each day of our 5 days and I felt so safe and relaxed. Right on the bus route and within walking distance to many fun places to eat and have a drink overlooking the beach - beautiful sunsets.
