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

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....
