If you're looking for a place to sleep overnight, then this place will do. There was a roach in the bathroom, the t.v. remote didn't work, the t.v. emitted a loud buzz sound, and the room overall could be cleaner. It is cheap for 2 beds, and friendly customer service. I probably would stay here again only for the price... More

This is my second winter at the Gulf Way. Staff is courteous and very helpful. Housekeepers do a great job. Close to beach, restaurants and shopping. Clean, sparkling pool. Parking lot is well-lit, safe and secure. Very quiet here, no wildness anywhere on the premises. A truly great value for adults and seniors. Being able to cook in your own... More

First off I'm not sure where these drunks and hoes are these other reviews speak of I have had no problems since I arrived in December. This motel has nice rooms for a good price, heated pool and free ice. Owners are easy to get along with and very friendly. I've been here for a month and I love it.... More

We're very picky about where we stay focusing on how expensive to managements abilty to keep bad patrons out. I'm happy to report positively up to now with respect to "our focus." The management staff... More

Yes you may have found a very cheap hotel, but its for all that you have to deal with in this place. When I first arrived, the parking lot was being watched by a police patrol car for like 4 or 5 hours, I should have known rite there...then as soon as he leaves you have the prostitutes hanging out...

I loved the pool. It was heated. It felt so good. But, the owner is horrible. He told us be got the sheets dirty and actually threw them in the trash. I didn't even sleep in the bed but 3 1/2 hours. And, I took a bath before I got into bed. So, beautiful place. The owners suck.

Stayed for one night at Gulfway Inn. This is a small, well run and cared for motel very close to the beaches. The room was clean, beds were comfortable, and towels were fairly new. The paint and carpeting looked newer and the furniture was in good repair. The manager, Victor, was personable and helpful. They offer coffee and Danish in... More

Stayed at the Gulfway Inn From 7/4/2015 thru 7/12/15. Room was clean and spacious with a kitchenette and full size refrigerator. Victor the owner/manager was a pleasure to deal with. The pool was big and clean and the motel is less than a 15 minute ride to Clearwater Beach. Supermarket right next door. Would recommend to all my friends and... More

I checked in Earlier today around 1pm. The room was not even ready, so I Waited for 15 minutes. Finally after getting checked in, I went into my room- it was a disgrace. Dirty, no towels, cracks and holes in the wall, filthy window, etc. I had a family emergency and needed to leave 3 hours later, and they wouldn't... More
