We stayed at the Legacy Vacation Resort in Indian Shores FL in February 2022 I can’t say enough nice things about this business First of all it’s a “B Corporation” which I had not heard of before

It means that the company takes social and environmental concerns into account instead of just pure profit So that was an unexpected plus It was across the street from the beach, backed up onto the inter-coastal and had spacious rooms The staff was excellent and answered any questions and even made phone calls for me regarding special requests that I had for restaurants There are grills that you can use to cook your own food if you would like You have to reserve them to make sure they’re available but this was no problem Someone will come down to uncover the grill and preheat it Utensils are available to use and when you’re done they clean the grill! The rooms are not cleaned daily unless requested for an extra fee, but linens and towels are exchanged daily if you want Dishes and utensils are included A dishwasher is provided and they give you dish washing detergent A small sponge and dish soap is also provided The only negative about the whole stay was there was no scouring pad for the dishes My grandson decided he would cook one night He knows little about cooking and even less about cleaning after himself I couldn’t get the pots clean with the sponge they provided I asked one of the staff and they were able to come up with a pad for me, even though they insisted I leave the dishes and pots for them The pool was good sized but not overly large, and they actually had a hot tub that they kept hot which I found both unusual for Florida and enjoyable! I was there with kids and grand kids and we had a two bedroom suite with two baths, included kitchen etc If you are traveling with the family and plan on doing some of your own cooking, I can’t recommend this location enough I would definitely stay here again


We stayed here two years ago when covid was just starting I was interested to see how it would be on a holiday week in 2022 It was still great! The pool was never really busy, super convenient to the beach and the pier out back

The building is so quiet Staff was wonderful, we had an accident that they had cleaned up when we returned at the end of the day Highly recommend staying here

Thomas Tweten

We stayed 1 night to kick off our trip Excellent value The rooms were newly updated and clean with nice walk in shower

Smooth check in and excellent staff The area is nice and a short trip to John’s pass and other activities Right across the street from the beach and on the intercoastal Covered parking was a nice benefit We would be happy to stay here again

The hotel itself is a little run down, but the rooms have been remodeled and are beautiful! The beach and pool are great The staff is amazing! They all were so friendly and helpful I would absolutely recommend this place

I just wish I could have had a longer stay The only complaints I have is there is only one mirror on rooms and no beach towels But I would definitely stay here again

Zoe Kaitlin

We stayed recently, for a week, and left knowing we would be back! The staff was helpful and honest The location was incredible We stayed in a 2 bedroom unit with a balcony (222) and it was very nice, clean, and spacious

We enjoyed a sailboat ride, using the kayaks, pool, hot tub and the cabanas There was a lovely restaurant and bar just a few minute walk down the beach I’ve seen mixed reviews, but personally, I cannot wait to book our next beach vacation at Grand Shores West We had a fantastic experience and would absolutely recommend GSW as well as stay again

Lisa Houdek

First off we had a mix up with my hotel package I purchased on Pricelinecom and the staff was amazing and understanding Sean I think was the General Manager and was amazing and helped me through the whole ordeal

I stayed with my 3 teenage girls and we were right on the beach This location is absolutely breathtaking The cleaning staff was so accommodating getting us new towels and wash clothes throughout our stay The outdoor heated pool and hot tub my girls loved The canopy chairs at the beach were included in the hotel Which was super nice to Use Thank you all for our wonderful stay We would definitely stay again

This place was wonderful Our villa was right on the beach – all we had to do was walk out the door and onto the sand Everything was provided as far as beach equipment – Canopy, chairs, towels, sunscreen, aloe, water toys

Everything you could think of The villa itself was cozy and stocked with all the necessities, and the bed was very comfortable The beach wasn’t overcrowded We thoroughly enjoyed our stay

First off I want to talk about the staff, each staff member I had any interaction with was extremely friendly and helpful I can tell that the staff here are well taken care of because their attitudes are great Secondly I want to rave about the restaurant that is attached to the hotel, YUMMY

It is very convenient to be able to go down and eat breakfast, lunch, and dinner while never leaving the beach There are several tables outside that overlook the ocean Lastly, the beach is within steps of the hotel I’m talking like 50 yards and you’re swimming Beautiful sunset too 10/10 would recommend Thank you all for being so welcoming and friendly

Linda Schmidt

I just stayed there last week and it was wonderful Great location, great views and services with food and drinks was super Total shout out to the staff, they were off the chart professional, kind and courteous

I checked out and left my air pods in the room Housekeeping turned them in and i had them back with in 24 hours I cant thank them enough for their honesty and getting them back to me A great place and will definitely stay there again They get 6 stars from me

Dwayne Leonsrd

I requested my room to be cleaned and serviced the set towels out side my door I called the front desk they apologized and did try to make it right The did comp my wife and I a dinner well that did not go well as I looked at the menu on-line and thought what I was going to have for my dinner well they had not updated their website so what I was thinking I was going to have had been taken off the menu

I’m not one to complain I work in customer service and in management and to pay premium pricing for this hotel over 400000 for a week stay I would expect better quality of stay The people were wonderful and friendly and the do the best they can with the directions they are given The views are wonderful management needs to step up their game all the trophies in the lobby are years in thepast and does not represent this hotel today Thease issues are purely on a management team and it’s upper levels To no fault of of the service people as they do as they are directed I would love to be contacted by the upper management team to discuss their management issues

My husband and I stayed here for our honeymoon! It was so relaxing! The staff were amazing! They made us feel like we were at home! My husband is a type one diabetic and had a sugar scare; the lobby was very helpful and provided quick room service with sugary foods They called to check on him a couple hours later as well We also absolutely loved the rooftop bar (sunset shots!), rooftop pool, close proximity to the beach! Everything was great, we will definitely be visiting again!

Pam Novakowski

The staff was very nice and helpful The hotel itself is beautiful I thought for a newer hotel it would have been cleaner

The floors in the room were dirty and the closet hadn’t been cleaned in a while The double beds weren’t for us but the decor was very pretty Where they kept snacks to purchase in the lobby, shelves were very dusty The service in the third-floor restaurant was very good Food for dinnernot so much Breakfast was good The rooftop bar had beautiful scenery and the drinks were pricey

Brian Barnette

I must say that when we first arrived, I wasn’t happy about the parking situation Once i got over it, we truly had one of the best vacations we’ve had in a long time The hotel was very modern, clean, spacious and conveniently located to several restaurants and shops along the beach

The staff went out of their way (on several occasions) to make us feel comfortable and to make sure we were enjoying our stay The roof top bar and pool were a great place to catch some rays, enjoy great drinks, eat some delicious food all while listening to some great live music!! We were more than pleased with our choice and can’t wait to return!!

This is a very neat location, never been in anything like it before But

the rooms are extremely dated, not worth anywhere near the price they are charging And now they charge for parking?The employees were all extremely nice and helpful Restaurant staff didn’t show so had to wait 40 minutes on breakfast Ordered oyster and they were out of them, so ordered shrimp They were terrible, no taste and mealy I also order a salad that was excellent and the crab legs were good Just to recapp nice place but way way overpriced

Cori Lei

1 minute from Indian Rocks Beach which is great! Located in walking distance to a few restaurants as well, which is convenient Check-in and check-out went smoothly The room is spacious with a mini kitchen

I was impressed with the bathroom and the hot water I love the scenery and the amenities that this property offers Water park and mini golf is great for a family vacation I will definitely be back!

Jay Kielt

A review is not meant to be cruel, so I will simply say that I would never consider this hotel as an option in the future unless every other hotel within a 25 mile radius simultaneously burnt to the ground at the exact same time I’m sure this place was great back in the late 70s or early 80s, which is most likely the last time it was updated Wait staff in the restaurant was nice, food was mediocre at best

Good parking situation which is why I gave it 1 star

The customer service by every single member of the staff is exemplary! This is a brand new property, and it’s beautiful, with a more than adequate kitchenette, convenient curtain separation in the suite between living and sleeping areas (so kids can sleep while adults catch their breath) The bed was so comfortable, and plenty of pillows too The room was beautiful and very clean

This property is very pet friendly, and although we didn’t bring our dogs, with the hotel full of service animals, there was absolutely no barking (at least none we could hear) The pool was clean and refreshing The breakfast was fantastic and included in the room I can’t say enough about the staff at this property David and Jennifer were both super attentive and always ensured all our needs were met You can tell the staff really care We live close by and stayed here to get away from home and enjoy the pool, and we got so much more than we planned for Thank you so much! We can’t wait to come again

The staff at Home2Suites surpassed any of my other experiences at a hotel So welcoming, accommodating and friendly!! The room was spacious, awesome and oh so clean We had absolutely everything we needed

Great experience!! (Note: This was a block of rooms for a big wedding so we were a large, loud, merry group and the staff was more than happy to be happy with us!!)

My family stayed here exactly a year ago It was the best experience The grilling areas were amazing, the pool was fun, great location all together

Plus the staff was amazing The only thing I would change is adding a broom in each room The rooms were perfect size for 4 people! Will definitely be back the next time we are in the area Also loved we could leave our pool floats and life vests there knowing another family could get joy out of them!

Kerry Baldwin

What a find! We stumbled on to this place by chance and we were the lucky ones! Rooms are beyond spacious and nice! The pool area is a well kept and very relaxing We did not use the grills but they are readily available Kat who works the front desk is a breath of fresh air and super friendly! Hotel is just across the street from one of the prettiest sunsets we have seen! Highly recommend!

Jerry Hoang

Such a wonderful place! Our most recent visit was over last weekend We stayed in a different room than last times, and each room is decorated in a unique way The ladies from the Front Office and staff are very friendly and courteous

Giving this place a solid 5 stars! My friends and I stayed for 4 nights last week and we couldn’t have asked for more Spacious well equipped room with a wonderful balcony (sunset view included with ours!), awesome front desk associates with great suggestions, super duper beautiful waterside pool and hot tub, great bar/bartender (Kelly!) and a convenient 18 minute walk to a great beach (where you can rent a beach chair for $5 forthe whole day)! I would come back here any day of the year Thank you Courtyard Marriott Madeira Beach for a perfect stay!


This experience was terrible Our first day here, we were able to switch rooms but my wife forgot her wedding rings in the first room We informed front desk guy, Brian, who sent an employee to let us back into the room to search for the rings

They rings were not there When we went down to inform Brian at the front desk, he vehemently denied that anyone might have taken them I asked him to ask the only housekeeping employee who had cleaned that room after we switched rooms Brian called and we heard the guy say he found 2 rings and that he “forgot ” to bring them down REALLY??? Why didn’t front desk call housekeeping right away to check if he found the rings when we called down the first time?We stayed 7 days last year and enjoyed our stay so much that we decided to come back this year to stay another 8 days With this incident and now they decided to charge $10 parking per day, we’ll take our business elsewhere This is not okay and I am a silver elite member with Marriott

Chris Sorento

Top notch service These people are very good making you feel important and they are very professional Rooms were clean

Loved the balcony Good treadmills The location was beautiful and close to publix and other food like McDonald’s and a pizza place Plus they have a bistro The legion was loud next door but could not hear them with patio shut The bad thing was the pool It looked very dirty Did not want to get sick swimming in it Lighting in room and bathroom was dark Beds were hard but better than lumpy Would stay here again if the pool gets cleaner
