This cozy little gem is nestled in the midst of enormous hotels and condos, right on Clearwater Bay. Staff is friendly and helpful; rooms are clean and efficient. The only thing I would do differently is bring a coffeepot... The hotel offers FREE coffee in the morning, but the office doesn't open until 8:00am. <wink, wink>

Been staying here for years. The staff is top notch, pool is sparkling, the grounds are immaculate, the view is outstanding, the rooms we consider our home away from home. Leave this last piece of old family time Florida intact!

We are locals who love this hotel for many reasons. We have a boat & can dock it at the Sea Captain for only $10 a night! The hotel is clean, the staff very nice & all the free amenities in the lobby: coffee, juice, muffins etc are an added bonus. My husband enjoys using the grills by the water... More

I've been staying here for 20 plus years with my in-laws who have been staying for 45 years. Great view of the bay, real close walk to the ocean. Staff is friendly, rooms are clean. Just a wonderful place to stay!!!!!

If you are on vacation to make memories, you stay here. If you're on vacation to take a cold elevator ride down 10 floors while struggling with your kids and all their beach toys, then see the ocean from a nosebleed 9th floor room with no balconey or windows that open to the lovely gulf breeze....then you stay next door...

As a surprise for our 50th wedding anniversary our children & spouses planned a surprise three day family reunion...Having never been to the Sea Captain we were so pleasantly surprised by this hidden gem in the shadows of a high rise hotel. The access from our room to the pool, boat dock, out side games.. just steps away, no loading... More

Just returned from our first trip to sea captains & LOVE this little slice of 'Old Florida' heaven! In a great location with friendly staff, friendly visitors and everything you need to enjoy the gorgeous Florida sunshine! Only sad thing is...it was just sold to a company that wishes to knock it down and build ANOTHER cookie cutter high rise... More

We have been staying there annually, around May time for about 10 years. We have casually looked at other places but nothing compares to the Sea Captain.. There is just something about the place that makes you feel comfortable from the moment you arrive. Its big enough to have a bit of life (unlike a number of others in the... More

Just got back from another great stay here, was informed at reception on last day the place is being bought by the pier 60 hotel. I have to say that I can understand why the gentleman that owns the Sea captain is selling up as I have business experience myself but I cannot hide my genuine sadness that it is... More

Stayed here instead of staying in Tampa while visiting for a concert. Yes, it's about a 30 minute drive over to Tampa, but it's soooo much nicer. Property is lovely, and located close to beach, food, and the pier. View from our room was so pretty. Room was clean, actually an efficiency unit, which is good if you're looking to... More
