What a great experience! We arrived at the Sea Captain Resort on January 12 and were warmly greeted by Laura at the front Desk. This is spotlessly clean small hotel with everything you could possibly want and more. When we arrived we were shown around the resort by Laura. She explained all they had to offer: free bike rentals, free... More

We stayed here after seeing the reviews on Tripadvisor. A lovely stay with a perfect location and wonderful people. Staff is great and the rooms where nice and clean and comfortable. Didn't spend time in the pool but looked really nice with lots of chairs to lay in the sun. Close to the beach, away from the main stripe for... More

Dear Dinosun, Thank you for your review!!! It was a pleasure to have you staying with us. The next time you visit, try out the pool, we keep it a warm 86 degrees year around. For those who like it a little warmer, try the hot tub Jacuzzi...kept year around at 101 degrees!!!! (don't forget the bubbles) Thank you again... More

The hotel is small (just 28 rooms), kind of 'retro', very clean, efficient, friendly and accomodating. It is in a perfect location, close to beach and restaurants, right on the bay facing east. There is plenty of common area filled with tables and chairs just outside of the hotel rooms - great for family gatherings. The staff goes out of... More

We arrived the 26th of December and stayed for one week in room #7. The hotel is small, but that adds to the appeal. The pool is warm and the hot tub was a nice treat waiting for the NYE fireworks. The staff is very helpful and most of the other people staying there were regulars. The location is probably... More

The hotel dates back to the 1950s;however, it is in such great condition. The rooms are very clean and beds comfortable. The property manager was just fantastic. Our family enjoyed this place for a nice weekend. The beach is across the street and anything you need is a quick walk. Great view of bay and plenty of tables and chairs... More

Cute Little mom and pop place right on the water that is well maintained, within walking distance to everything and friendly staff. The decor is slightly dated, but the rooms were clean and comfortable. Definitely a place we want to return to!

Stayed here after reading the reviews. The basics for a good hotel for me are cleanliness, quiet and a comfortable bed. Sea captain ticked all these boxes with aplomb. Yes, the rooms could do with a bit of updating but do not let this put you off. The charm, uniqueness and setting of this hotel sets it apart from all... More

We chose Sea Captain Resort based on reviews and were extremely pleased with our experience. We went in November, so it was not busy. Our room #9, a king efficiency on the ground floor, was ideal for the two of us. Walking out our back door we were only about 20 feet from the harbor. We sat on the fishing... More

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
