This place was great. The rooms were old and dated, but comfortable and clean. Motel is right across the street from the beach and walking distance to many great restaurants, show and bars. We didn't move our car our entire stay. Veronica greeted us upon our arrival. We were pleased when she told us her motel is not a spring... More

Sorry so long to post but just found this page. Went in October 2014 for our kids fall break. My daughter decided she wanted to get her senior pictures done in Clearwater because she wanted to be different than the rest of her classmates. We have stayed here three times so far and plan on returning this year as my... More

Was here the first week of March 2015. There is no bells and whistles and it is quite out dated but clean and has a fridge, microwave, coffee pot and 2 burner cooker. The best thing is the LOCATION your across the street from Clearwater Beach. Everything is in walking distance, you really don't need a car. Oh and the... More

Thank You nice people from Indiana. Your review is TRUE, we have no bells & whistles as you say. No spa, fitness center, on site restaurant. We are MOTEL - not a HOTEL. Mr. Frenchy has nice restaurant next door - you agree - your review say is good. Then Crabbys Bar - Post Corner, King Pizza Beach Shanty Cafe... More

We were expecting some sort of snag since our last accommodation in Pompano Beach was so frustrating. Extreme difference the minute we walked in. I believe it was KC that was at the desk and he greeted us with "oh we've been waiting for you, I didn't even have to say my name and he handed me my room key"!... More

This 'Mom & Pop' type motel is in a fantastic location directly across from the Clearwater Beach! The room rates are incredibly reasonable and the furnishings are eclectic and fun (think pastel walls, lace curtains and multi-coloured throw rugs). The rooms are cleaned as often as you wish and there is lots of hot water and comfy beds. There is... More

We just spent a week here (Feb 20-27). The staff was very accommodating and friendly. The location is great, walking distance to many restaurants and sites. Our room was fine, bed was comfortable enough, spacious bathroom. We arrived 6 hours late (4am) and the staff worked with us so we could get into our room, and even provided a cold... More

We traveled the gulf coast and stayed at the Clearwater due to the overwhemling love shared by the comments on trip advisor. The hotel was quiet, and the service was good. The office does not open until 9 a.m. While guests across the street and any number of other hotels are getting coffee at the front desk in the morning,... More

This was my second stay with the volleyball gang and I can't say it enough; this place is fabulous! Clean and comfortable in a terrific location.

Hotel is in a great location- just steps from beach and also very close to Pier and activities. Ate several times at the Frenchy's location next door which had great sandwiches and drinks.
