Staff / owner was friendly, great location 5 min walk from the lovely beach, parking close to room, small but refreshing pools, plenty of shady seating & tables outside, clean old style rooms, comfortable, fridge / coffee / microwave / TV in room, I would recommend, it has character.

We stayed here for two nights while visiting Clearwater beach. The Motel staff were extremely friendly and helpful. We found the rooms clean and of a good size. Excellent location to get to the beach from (literally blocks away). We were able to walk to the restaurants and night life streets easily. Wonderful beaches, gorgeous sunsets- a great stay had...

My daughter and I spent 3 nights at this little place and truly fell in love with it. It was clean, quiet. Lots of trees, areas to sit, grill, 2 pools. The room was nicely sized with all the amenities that we needed. We didn't have the greatest weather but made the most of it with the pool right outside... More

We were unfortunate to hit Clearwater Beach on two rainy days, however, the stay at the motel was the addition to our quiet getaway. First, it was the only place available on Sat, second, its location is close to the beach, restaurants, and bars. The owner Ulli and his wife are cool, laid back, friendly people. Even though the phone... More

I would stay here again. Older style motel property, but relatively well kept up - not a lot of peeling paint or old carpet. Clean & quiet with great hosts / property managers. Didn't have any issues. Room was spacious (got the room with full kitchen). Didn't swim, but pool looked nice. Walking distance to several restaurant with high ratings... More

Thankfully there was also a gentleman there who called another place for us and got us a room. Guess it all worked out for the... More
