This place is just as pictured and described on their website. Simply adorable, quiet, clean and close to the beach and everything else. Nicely updated. If you have to dry your hair in the bathroom bring an extension cord it's as easy as that. Nice peopl running the place, Rodney and Gayle. Hope to come back again.

We stayed here for two weeks from 26th may as we had been to Florida before and this time wanted to base ourselves somewhere nicer than Orlando! Well what can I say the accommodation was perfect for our needs (#9) very clean and tidy. They supply beach towels, beach chairs, beach umbrellas, coolers which I've never experienced before! The suites... More

Last night on vacation and I'm putting off packing by writing my review. Loved this place! Planning another trip in the winter already. Gayle and Rodney made this trip for me, Rodney was very helpful with where to go, what to see, and eat (just don't tell anyone you actually saw him working). Gayle was so much fun to sit... More

Rodney and Gail are awesome hosts! They were great with our kids. Rodney told us the best places to eat and play. They had stuff there to take to the beach with us. All we had to buy was food.... and aloe Vera for our Florida sunkissed skin. We will definitely return for our next stay. The rooms were clean... More

Three of my girlfriends and I just returned from a wonderful Memorial Day weekend in Clearwater. The accommodations were wonderful and the location was not far at all from the beach but what made the stay excellent was the staff. This little family owned establishment made us feel at home and welcomed us with open arms. They provide you with... More

We booked two nights on our vacation drive through Florida. From the moment we arrived Rodney and Gayle treated us like family. The rooms were very nice and clean and appeared to have been updated recently. One block from the beach. Rodney gave us the low down on all the events happening around town, the best restaurants, and their food... More

I vacation in Florida several times a year and this time I decided to try Clearwater Beach and saw Blue Wave's website. Not knowing what to expect in unchartered waters, I had the most relaxing and fun time at the Blue Wave. You meet some great people on the premise, Gayle who took my reservation and made it work for... More

We stayed at the Blue Wave this past weekend. It was our second stay here and we will continue to come back!! The room is spacious and has everything you need but what will keep us coming back is the staff! From setting up the reservation to answering questions regarding our stay, Gayle is the best! Once there for any... More

Let's just say that my parents went from we-hate-destination-weddings to when-are-we-going-back and I think we owe most of that to our stay at the Blue Wave Motel. Rodney was like an instant friend who just set the whole tone of slipping into relaxation and happiness. He also took care of a bunch of our worries right away, like irons and... More
