Have been coming to hotel for decades and have previously rated it highly, but it changed hands since my last stay and is now under new management pending demolition for larger hotel. All staff appears to be new. Day of arrival, called hotel en route to warn of late arrival. At first hotel telephone did not work. Finally got through... More

This hotel is not a high rise which I like, right on the bay, short distance from Pier 60 and all the boat rides, Best feature, it was close to the Clearwater Aquarium which is a rescue aquarium only and very interesting, the best aquarium I have ever been to. I have a hard time walking but there was no... More

We spend the passed Xmas - New Year. The hotel is right at marina, we can see the sun rise inside room and it was great! Pier 60 beach is right cross street in 3 min walk so is all the boat tours. Lots of deck chairs/table throughout the courtyard/pool, kids running around and play and adults can have good... More

I'm so glad we found this little place, surrounded by the commercial giants. I'm also sorry we will probably not get a chance to return as its due to be demolished and we wont be back in Florida in time. Anyway a cute, quirky motel, with a great location. A bit shabby but clean and comfortable with buckets of character.... More

Booked this room after reading other Trip Advisor reviews. Stayed two nights. An older facility, two stories, but well maintained and a perfect location. Just across the street is the public beach, Pier 60, and then a short walk to dozens of shops and restaurants. A 24-hour Walgreens is within walking distance. Being able to sit at the outdoor table... More

I had to come to Clearwater for business on a Saturday, but convinced my fiancé to come with me. We found the Sea Captain online and booked it for Saturday night. It looked cute online and was inexpensive. It did not disappoint. For an old building, it is well kept. The staff is friendly and helpful. You're right on the... More

We stayed at the Sea Captain Resort one night to be close to an event at Pier 60. The hotel is situated perfectly with easy walks to north or south Clearwater Beach. While not directly on the beach it does have great views of the marina and the intercoastal. While not the newest hotel on the beach, our room was... More
