We just got back from a three night stay at the blue wave. It was my husband, myself, our daughter, and niece. The room was cool, it was comfortable. We had our own private room and the girls stayed on the sofa bed. It was literally right down the road from the beach, a five minute walk. Not to mention... More

We just returned home from a trip to Clearwater Beach and a 5 day stay at the Blue Wave. I cannot rave enough about this place! The suite was well furnished, clean and had a full kitchen. The location to the beach could not be better, just about a block and a half away and very close to Pier 60.... More

Gayle & Rodney were amazing and took the best care of me & my two children. The walk to the beach and nearby restaurants was very easy. The room was perfect. We had a kitchenette, which allowed us to eat in and stay in our vacation budget. Can't wait to visit again!!

My new wife and I stayed at the Blue Wave Motel Suites and it was amazing! The people who run the motel are some of the sweetest people you'll ever meet. The one owner even called to congratulate us on our wedding while we were still making the trip from New Jersey to Clearwater. The motel suite was awesome, with... More

Couldn't have been more perfect -- so friendly, helpful, and comfortable! Perfect location for walking to the beach or food. No car needed! Room was very clean, owners treated us like family. They have everything you could want to borrow for a day at the beach. We were on a girls trip and it was perfect!!

Such a nice change from a chain hotel. Reminds me of vacations growing up but much cleaner & not scary like some places. Super easy 2 minute walk to the beach. They offered beach chairs, towels, bikes, coolers and beach toys for kids that we could BORROW - NOT rent or buy. How awesome is that? You can't get that... More
