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

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
