I had a nice exeperience here staying with my family . Room, pool, location were good. Worth staying. It was clean and hygenic. Having the owner right on site makes a different and as a small business owner I appreciated his hands on approach. The rooms were clean and functional I will definitely stay there my next trip to Clearwater.... More

Price was good compared to other hotels in the area. Room was clean and staff was nice. Quiet area, no shady business, no drug parties. Only ten minute drive to the beach. Would definitely stay again.

We were only going to stay one night but decided to stay two. The room was clean and the owner was very nice.the price was great (65) and for that price you can't complain about a little mold on the bathroom ceiling . A room like this would cost you 180 a night on the Maine coast. Would recommend😊

Thank god we were just sleeping here. I will say the people are nice but cleanliness is DISGUSTING! Our shower curtain and bathroom ceiling had mold growing on it, the bed sheets had stains, and covers had holes in them. Also, the clock was broken. Don't bother with this place

The manager and his wife did not show any hospitality. Over charged my credit card for a nine hour stay. The managers wife gave a nasty attitude toward my family. I would not advise any one who likes hospitality to get a room here.

My husband and I stayed there last night. We won't be staying there again. The location is fine, the check-in process was not easy. The owners/managers are understandably jaded (I suppose I would be too) I'd like to tell them that if they're unhappy in their career choice perhaps it's time to find another career. They were rude, but it... More

Best Place ever try to find better I dare you. Pool, Hot Tub, wifi, cable, great staff, nice landscaping all around good place to stay. The owner here cares more than most do. nice place for kids with noon smoking rooms.

The Gulf Way Inn was a pleasant surprise. Low price for a nice clean room with very comfortable beds. It is located near a variety of restaurants to choose from and is surprisingly quiet considering the busy road it is on. I will definitely stay here the next time I am in town visiting.

I'm afraid Trip Advisor Reviewers have been too nice to this establishment. It is old and not very well kept. Location worked for us, but I would not go back. After reading the glowing reviews we were very, very surprised when we pulled in, but we gave it a try anyhow.
