After spending a week in Florida we were looking for a place close to the Tampa airport. Part of our vacation was to spend a day at Clearwater Beach. This hotel suited our needs for a one night stay. I failed to read the fine print about having to call if you're going to check in after 5 PM. When... More

Arrived late at night but everything was ready for me. The mattresses are amazing and the room cleaning does a great job each day. All staff are very helpful and friendly - especially in providing suggestions and tips for things to do in the area. I hear its under new management as the changes done since my visit in 2013...

The best hotel I think I've ever stayed at. Beautiful room, totally awesome friendly staff, quiet and relaxing. The hotel and grounds were very clean and upkept. Within walking distance of area stores and beach.

Ok. Stayed here prior to the renovation (last year) then after the renovation, and I was compelled to let all Tripadvisor travelers know that the old 'Manoco Inn' (or whatever it was) is dead and gone. The best thing is that there is no evidence of any kind of renovations going on. I believe all is finished. For instance, noise,... More

We got here and everything was just perfect from the start. We met the new management and they are great! They are now called Island Cay. They upgraded us twice to accommodate our guests at no charge which was greatly appreciated. We stayed in the two bedroom apartment style room. All the rooms were very comfortable and stylish also equipped... More

First vacation with my boyfriend- was originally scheduled by Expedia to be in non-smoking room at a hotel in Tampa. There was miscommunication between Expedia and the hotel, and we were placed in a smoking room with no option for a non smoking room! So we ended up switching location and hotel which brought us here (a non smoking environment).... More

This place is undergoing some renovations on its way to time share status. The pool is nice and the beds are new and comfortable. The room itself is tiny and clean. The kitchenette is nice. Modern this place is not. Clean - yes. Tiny - oh yes. Near the beach - one block away. Staff was nice too.

If you like the old fashion type motel as opposed to a high rise, you will really like this place. The new owners seem to be working day and night doing renovations. The rooms are immaculately clean as is the property. The furniture is new, the rooms freshly painted and the outside was being painted as we pulled away. There... More

We just left Island Cay and will definitely stay again. We've stayed before when it was the Monaco and what an improvement. The new owners are just wonderful and totally about making your stay as enjoyable as possible. The entire property has changed and is so beautiful. The rooms have been completely remodeled and so clean and updated. I can't... More
