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. Hotel room was more than enough for a long weekend. Was nice to have fridge, microwave, and free parking. There was a little bit of noise at... More
