I stayed here over the weekend with my family and it was the best stay I've had with any Motel. Gayle and Rodney were awesome they helped with anything we needed they provided beach towels and chairs and they also had bikes you can use for free to ride around and see the sights. The beach is right down the... More

Just back from our "Phillies & Golf" trip and we can wait to get back to stay at the Blue Wave. It is right in the middle of all the action so besides the game & golf, we walked to great restaurants, shopping and drinks. Gayle and Rodney could not do enough for us. If you needed it and it... More

Room was good for a short stay...that was not my priority.. The owners were special people who were very friendly and helpful with suggestions of what to do in the area! Traveling alone and felt very safe.

We have stayed at the Bluewave now for 5 years and always come back. The location is great and there is always something to see from the rooftop deck.The kitchen has everything you need and a gas range is nice for cooking breakfast etc. Rodney Gayle and Al are all extremely nice people and always make us feel at home....

We discovered Blue Wave Motel a few years back when we lived in Orlando and escaped to Clearwater Beach for the weekend. Gayle and Rodney could not be more helpful and hospitable. We have moved to Boynton Beach, but everytime we go to the Blue Wave Motel, it is like better than going to visit family! The Lauers'

There is access to beautiful beach in just minutes by foot. They have beach chairs, umbrellas, towels, etc available for use. Rodney was fantastic and clearly committed to providing a nice... More

We booked our trip based on the excellent reviews. Received a call several days before our arrival from Gayle apoligizing about the road work and said she understood if we decide not to stay but if we do she would give us a substantial discount which she did. When we arrived, the road work was not nearly as bad as... More

My mom and I stayed here on our first trip to Clearwater, and loved it! The owners, Gayle and Rodney, couldn't be any nicer, the rooms were clean and decorated so lovely, and it's a very convenient walk to the beautiful Clearwater Beach.

After excellent reviews, we decided to book our family vacation here . When we arrived, road work did not allow access to park in front of the motel. The manager, Gail was very nice though & showed us a few other suites away from the roadwork. They had a lot to be desired in their way of cleanliness & neatness... More
