My brother and his family came for a week visit and stayed here. We live in Tarpon and booked a room for the night so that we could spend some time with them. The husband and wife team in the office were terrible! Their son was a nightmare that ran around the facility yelling at people like a crazy monster.... More

We had our second family reunion at the Island Cay in Clearwater Florida.. Although it was just my husband and I in one room,we had two full bedrooms. The rooms were immaculate and loved having a kitchen for our needs. It was a block away from the beach and the stores were in walking distance. The owners were very accommodating... More

Great Place right next to the beach with all of the best restaurants just a short walk away. Although there was renovations at the pool; the discount was worth the trouble. They gave me a pass to the recreational pool down the street. They also provided nice room service.

I wasn't sure about the place when I drove up. Some parts are under construction, But the rooms were Soooo clean, cool and quiet. I walked to everything, restaurants, beach and shopping. They even gave me a pass to the local recreation center that has an Olympic size pool, water park, tennis courts a gym, and boat docks. Free parking... More

I went there 2 weeks ago and forget all the negative reviews. Those were from the days of the old owners. This new management is fantastic! We went on a family trip and stayed in a 2 bedroom, 1 BR suite with fully stocked kitchen. The room was very clean and the staff was wonderful and amazingly accommodating. We had... More

This place is located too far to walk to Pier 60 - the marina or anything except a few dumpy bars - Shitwreck & Beachfyre - and the beach. The prior owner of this motel is the worlds biggest cheapskate - a liar - fraudster - and spoiled silver spoon coke head. The dump reputation & clientele he built for... More

This was an incredibly charming resort only two blocks from beautiful white sands and the gulf of mexico. The rooms were clean, the staff very friendly. Even after an uncharacteristic screw-up by hotels.com that booked us in the wrong sized room, the resort went above and beyond to make it right, putting our family in a much upgraded room without...

My boyfriend and I stayed for Memorial day weekend and I must say I was surprised by how clean the room was, it was a standard hotel room but cozy enough for the two of us. The staff was super nice, thank you Tam & Steve for making our stay comfortable, we had a great time. We will return so... More

I was the one who wrote the review called rip off. I wrote the review in the beginning of May. I still do not have my refund. I told them I needed by Memorial week end to get another motel. Their comment about they couldn't accommodate us because of their renovation. That was a lie. I told Tammy I would... More

Hands down worst place I've ever stayed in. Island Circus is more like it... Messed up our reservations, but blamed it on Expedia.. put us in a bug bombed room.. Then moved us to another room .. Wait no that rooms not finished .. Another room. Then pounded on my door at 7AM and told me to vacate the premises... More

Steve M, Manager at The Island Cay at Clearwater Beach, responded to this review

It is unfortunate that your reservation, which was booked by you online was for only one adult and two children so the reservation system assigned the type of room to the number of guest quoted by you online so that is why you was given that room type. The room has been recently, within the past month, remodeled so it... More
