My sister had a wedding in Clearwater at the Sand Pearl. I'm so glad/lucky I found this motel. The owners were beyond helpful! Anything we needed was provided immediately. They don't charge for parking and they don't add all kinds of other resort fees. The room was very nice and clean. Great location! I didn't use my car or a... More

I was in town for a large convention. I enjoy staying at the smaller places. This hotel looked good on the reviews. Since I was by myself and was only sleeping there it was fine. The kitchenette was ample and it had a double bed in a separate bedroom and a hideabed sofa. This property does not have a pool... More

We had a one-bedroom suite that may have been nice for a long term stay, but we were only there one night. It was overly expensive for an Old Florida hotel that had not been updated. We weren't looking for luxury, but this was more "old" than "old Florida." Frankly, we weren't impressed with Clearwater. Too many high-rises, very touristy.... More

Dear Guest: We believe you have been traveling so long you may have mixed up Blue Wave Suites with one of the old florida roadside motels you did not like. This10 room boutique Motel had a $500,000 renovation just a few years ago with new kitchens, Flat Tvs, Split system Air conditioners, and new furniture. Your comments that you were... More

It was nice to have a kitchen and separate bedroom, especially traveling with kids. Location is great - beach is just down the street, and they have beach towels, umbrella and chairs you can use, free of charge. There are also bicycles for you to use. Also free parking for your car. Rodney is extremely helpful with everything. Great place... More

My wife and I stayed at the Blue Wave for a week in June 2014. Rodney (the manager) was great to us. He knows the area extremely well and was quick to point out the good restaurants and happy hour specials. The Blue Wave is a very quick walk to the beach, and I loved that the BW provided beach...

I was in Clearwater Beach only for a few days for a Conference, which was given at the Hilton's a few streets away. The suites are perfect and very comfortable. The place was quiet and far from the Beach Party and loud noise (unless that is what you are looking for!). I was welcomed with a big smile and a... More
