We booked this hotel for one night when we arrived in Tampa. It was as expected for the price we payed. The rooms were a little tired but the beds were comfy and we had a good nights sleep, We never got to use the pool as we were so tired after 16 hours of travelling. The view from our... More

We started here for a weekend get away. The room was clean and nice. The original room we were give was not correct, however the staff was helpful to fix that. Great view of the beach. Great location and close to restaurants. However, there was a $10 per day change for parking that was not mentioned at any time prior... More

I stayed here with my son for 3 nights. Firstly I have to say the location is excellent, directly opposite the beautiful beach and next door to Surfstyle. I had a double room overlooking the Bay Area, room was very basic but very clean. I was unable to unpack properly because my room had no drawers, there was also no... More

Accomodations were perfect. The front desk staff was very helpful and informative. The rates were very reasonable. The pool was very refreshing, relaxing, beautiful views and the staff was always avaible for towels and to answer any questions you might have. The only thing I could think of for a suggestion would be an ice bucket for the rooms. This... More

Booked this the day before and so happy with it. Across the road from the beach, plenty of bars and restaurants in walking distance - one even next door. Rooms were spacious and spotless. The pool was a good size from 4ft to 8ft deep with views of the beach and plenty of sun loungers and space. The staff were... More

We only required a one night stay so we chose a room facing the back (bay side) of the hotel and we were surprised to find a bay view! We did ask for a trundle bed twice which never came. However this hotel is an excellent location with many shops and restaurants very close by, so no need to drive... More

After checking out of our first motel that we had a horrible experience with we still had four nights left in Clearwater Beach, with no where to stay. After checking out a few other spots and being less than impressed I was lucky enough to find this gem of a hotel! The staff was so friendly, the room was clean,... More
