My family and I stayed one night at this quaint little motel on Clearwater Beach. First of all - it was better than I expected. The rooms are small with "beach-like" (inexpensive) furniture ... but we just used this a time to be closer. :) They have a small pool in the courtyard (with lounging chairs) ... but why hit...

I chose this hotel because of the additional bedroom it offers and the awesome reviews it has received. It was also one of the few available options during the last week of March. Parking is free in front of the hotel, but not guaranteed. You are provided a parking pass to place in your vehicle when parking in front of... More

If you are looking for an older quiet hotel/condo in the quiet north side of Clearwater Beach with no beach view then this is it. The staff is friendly and condo offers free things for you to use during your stay that we didn't expect. There are beach toys, chairs, umbrellas, coolers, beach towels, and even a wagon to take...

We appreciate the review. We had no idea that the sofa bed had been broken by the previous guest until you informed us. As soon as we were notified of the problem we ordered a completely new sofa sleeper for your room -- unfortunately, we were not able to get it delivered before you left. In the meantime our Property... More

I just checked out of this hotel today and I have nothing bad to say about this place except that I wish I could have stayed longer! The staff was amazing, the pool was warm and relaxing, and the beds were very comfortable. There are coolers and umbrellas for you to bring on the short walk to the beach, which... More

We stayed in the 1 bedroom condo. Shopping and restaurants were within walking distance. The walk to the beach is shorter than the walk across the sand to the gulf. The pool was nice. The kitchen was well equipped. I suggest bringing paper plates since there is no dishwasher. The personnel were awesome and really wanted to assist us in... More

We stayed for 7 nites at this aparthotel. Nicely decorated, large couch and 2 club chairs. 4 seat glass dining table in a fully outfitted kitchen. Flat screen TV in the living room and bedroom. Bathroom is small, but ok for 2 people. A parking pass is provided so you can park on the street without having to plug the... More

A five night stay on a "cold" week in January. Location is great, far north end of business district on Mandalay Avenue, one block from beautiful Clearwater beach. Parking (on the street) is now less of an issue as city of Clearwater has installed parking meters in front of the hotel... If you are a guest you'll receive a "free... More

We got stuck in Orlando traffic and so we were late checking in. The manager called us to make sure we were ok and to give us after hours check-in instructions. The apartments over look a courtyard with a pretty kidney-shaped pool and lots of lounge chairs. The beach is right across the street, and because you're on the north... More

If you are looking for a place that is affordable, comfortable, convenient, cozy, and has classic good looks, you probably won't do much better than this one on the northern part of Clearwater Beach. Everything is CLEAN, the owner and staff are FRIENDLY, there are about 15 units (2 stories) plus the office surrounding a pool only one block from... More

We stayed over the Christmas Break and had a second floor room with one bedroom. First impressions are it is well kept and clean. The rooms were nicely furnished although the furniture was large and bulky for a small room. We did not need two breakfast tables in a one bedroom unit. The resort is an older Motel style and...
