Its a two star rating for me because IF I was fully informed of extra fees, was feeling broke, and found this motel for a very cheap price I MIGHT stay here again. I would do my best not to, but if I was desperate enough I might. #1 CON- The motel will blame anything unpleasant on "third party booking"... More

This older style hotel is steps from the amazing beach and next door to a Crabby Bills. Also on this strip is a Frenchys restaurant and a small MacDonalds. (Surf and Style is a huge shop next door but one, I wasn't familiar with these and thought it was just Surfy clothes and stuff, but no, it is full of... More

Third time we've stayed here. first and second time we had free parking and wifi third time..no!! $10.00 to park for a total of 17 hours and were told wifi would be charged at $3,50 per night of stay. Not a good move by hotel. They should build these extra costs into the advertised price not tell guests about them... More

This place is so dated that they still have tube televisons! Aside from it being dirty and finding beer bottles outside in the parking lot. They also charge you for parking per day!!! Parking should be included if you are staying there!!! We booked the hotel and when we walked up to the room we didnt like it and decided... More

The location was perfect. It is located in the center of the strip which is convenient for shopping and restaurants. Upon arrival we received a coupon for a free drink at the restaurant next door. We did use it and ended up having dinner there! The staff is very friendly and helpful. As with most hotels in the area it... More

The room was clean and had a wonderful view. It was a small room, but for the great price I got on Priceline, it was a huge bargain!! They do have internet (it showed as no internet when we reserved the room). There was a $10 parking fee, but this didn't bother me as the price was so great! The... More

If you want luxury, the Hyatt is right next door. If you want a decent place to stay that's right across the street from the beach and won't cost you an arm and a leg... this is the place for you. Stayed here on New Year's Eve and it served it's purpose perfectly. It's nothing to write home about but... More

We drove into Clearwater without having any reservations for a place to stay, this place was very accommodating and CLEAN. It's very close to things to do, places to eat and enjoying the very clean beach. This isn't a top hotel chain, but was a close second due to pricing and availability. I'd stay here again in a pinch. I... More

Had night to kill before flight. Room was clean, comfortable albeit a bit dated. The free breakfast was adequate but no hot food other than toast. However, the location was superb - the best beach in Florida is right out the front door. Nice restaurant next door. Parking was extra which wiped out breakfast benefit. Internet was free. would stay... More

Very old unit, not soundproof, dirty, years of paint layers trying to cover it up. Crawling little bugs, holes in curtains and furniture. Watch out....when u check out they say "I have just one charge, $10 for pparking." Haha nice move.....that's not good business. Guess it pays for replacing the crunchy towels.
