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

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

The beach was amazing, the locals were friendly, and the Blue Wave made our trip absolutely perfect! This quaint little place made us feel right at home. The hospitality was above and beyond!

We stayed at the Blue Wave at the end of April for a friend's wedding that was happening across the street at the Hilton. We paid half as much for our room and felt like we were better off than our friends who stayed at the Hilton! The people running the place were very nice to us, giving us beach... More

The location is perfect for walking 2 blocks to the beach, or one block to the strip of shops and restaurants. Although we rented a car, truly if you stay at this location, a car is not needed due to most of the attractions are within walking distance or trolley ride. The management is excellent in providing anything you're missing... More

Had a meeting at the Hilton and went for a short walk around the block. Came across this little cute motel and found the rooms to be half the price of the big hotels and with a full kitchen. The staff was very friendly and the rooms were clean, clean, clean. Off the main drag, but a block and a... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
All rooms are newly remodeled one bedroom suites with very high quality appointments like Granite counter tops in complete kitchen, wood cabinets, full size refrigerator with ice maker, 4 burner gas stove. Tile floor to ceiling in bathroom. Some suites have Intercoastal Waterway view. Guests gather at our Roof Top Terrace for drinks and watch the sunset on the Gulf of Mexico with music. Our favorite gathering spot has view of the Gulf and Intercoastal waterway. Only 10 rooms at this cute Mom and Pop friendly resort all suite motel. Get twice the room, for half the price of the Hilton and Sandpearl Hotels across the street. Friendly service and help with all your vacation needs is why our Guests return, and never a charge for parking, playpens, beach chairs and maid service. ... more   less
