This is probably the best motel left on Clearwater Beach. The grounds are immaculately kept. The rooms are clean and the staff is fantastic. My family has stayed here many, many times and we hope that the Sea Captain does not get plowed over to throw up another character-les high rise hotel. As long as the Sea Captain is open... More

We really enjoyed our stay here. Very friendly staff, very clean rooms. You can tell they truly do take pride in having a very nice and clean facility. Look forward to another stay there. It's so close all attractions, pier 60 and all the little shops along the strip there. Perfect for our little weekend getaway.

First,this is a great location and nice common areas,pool,docks and views. The rooms need painting,the appliances are from the 70s and the carpet needs to be replaced. It's sticky. Staff are wonderful however. This place could be a gem but the owners would have to spend some money.
