Not quite sure what I expected but after reading the reviews I was expecting more. We only had a 2 night stay. We were greeted nicely on arrival and shown several rooms that we could use. The hotel has a beautiful view of the bay and is around 150 yards from the beach, although this cannot be seen due to... More

The hotel itself was very nice - exceptionally clean, the location was perfect, the staff were really friendly and helpful. There were lots of small amenities that showed a lot of thought on the part of the management - laundry services available, a clothesline in the back for drying wet suits and towels, chairs overlooking the bay. The room itself... More

This was a first and will not be the last stay at Sea Captain. The rumors are true, the Sea Captain has been sold and owned by Pier House 6. There is uncertainty on how it will shape up in years to come when it is rebuilt. I hope they do not rebuild this hotel and block the views from... More

We have stayed at this resort numerous times over the years. The staff is always super friendly(especially Donna) and we are always well taken care of. The place is super clean and in a perfect location. This is a secluded little Resort and rumour has it there are new owners. We are hoping they keep things exactly as they are... More

The Sea Captain is a great small hotel to stay at in Clearwater Beach! Just across from the gulf beaches, within walking distance of everything on the beach, friendly staff, clean comfortable rooms, uncrowded, and reasonably priced. What more could you ask for? Get one of the rooms over-looking the marina. Just be aware that the hotel is right by... More

We stayed in room 28 which is a very basic motel room on the second floor. We did not have a single issue with it and knew going in that it was just a couple of beds and a fridge. We were perfectly happy. Now, if a suite had been available, that would have been great too! We stayed at... More
