We stayed two nights here, it was very busy when we arrived so our choice was limited. However we were so well looked after by Teresa and her family, she even gave us her lovely homemade apricot cake. Whilst this is not posh or a new place it is homely and it has everything you need. Conwy sofa and beds,... More

Like I said, the room was clean and surprisingly not too outdated. If you plan on staying here, just keep in mind you are responsible for cleaning your own room, or you will be "fined." We stayed a week and had clean towels once. The owner/manager was just kind of "there." I guess our first mistake was not staying somewhere... More

Yes we did it again, the third time. Sometimes i can´t understand the review of other guests, sure it is no 5 star hotel and thats the reason why we come again. it´s very personal and friendly and robert is a great host, but you have to tell him if something goes wrong, and he will do his best to...

I recently went to Clearwater beach with my wife and in-laws. We checked into the Castaway's on a Sunday. The property owner/manager basically called my father-in-law an idiot within the first five minutes we were there, telling him he knew nothing of motel/hotel management. He worked in that field for 17 years on a regional level. We walked into the... More

I really do not know how to respond to this review without make him look unintelligent. My comment to his father in law was "Running 6 unit Motel is very different than managing a HOTEL(s) at a regional level." To which his father in law agreed. Perhaps he thought that his father in law checked-in customers on a daily bases... More

The room was very very small even though it was advertised as roomy. The dishes were old and we only had one pan to make a meal with. Was very stingy with the towels and the owner was constantly hanging around like he was checking on what we were doing. We were told that our room had a king size... More

When the customer called us to make a reservation, I have told her that this apartment was the only one I had available, and that it will not accommodate 5 people; that they will not be comfortable sleep there with that many people. To which she replied "If you do not mind, we won't either". The discomfort was making of... More

About 2 years ago my husband and I were looking for somewhere new to stay close to the Gulf since we had always been visitors to the east beaches and knew bascially nothing about Clearwater. I found his place online just by doing a search on small lodging in the area and we were pleasantly surprised with the overall experience.... More

This is a great little "mom and pop" hotel. We have stayed at several other small hotels in the Clearwater Beach area this is by far heads above the rest. Great little fishing dock, clean pool, super clean and comfortable rooms. Located in a very quiet area of town you you dont hear the sirens and comotion all night but... More

We use to stay at a similar establishment that is no longer there on the same street. It is a 3 minute walk from the beach. Clean, Roomy apartments, Quiet, and well run. Robert the owner takes pride in making sure your stay is all it can be and offers a value rarely seen. Having only 6 apartments he is... More
