This little hotel is great! Its in a great place by the Bay and across the street from the beach, yet still tucked away somewhat secluded. A short walk to shops, restaurants, and lots of boating/beach activities. The rooms and hotel are very clean and the bed was comfortable. A small kitchenette for cooking was there if we needed it...

The sea captain has it all, it is the friendliest place I have ever had the good fortune to visit. My self and my family will be returning for the third year in a row this September. The staff are exceptional and cannot be any more welcoming than they are. You truly feel like part of a family. Along with... More

The location is perfect. Very family friendly. Great place to have a family gathering. Very peaceful on the bay over looking the marina. My friend and I have gone here 3 times now and love this place. It has a warm friendly feeling, you would never get this in one of those high rise hotels. You get to chat with... More

Great location, we parked the car and didn't need it until the day we left. Rooms were clean. We had the basic room but it had a mini fridge and a microwave. It was fun watching the boats come and go. As many have stated the rooms are dated but for the price and location you can't beat it. We... More

Very difficult to find in the dark especially when you are tired. The bed large and comfortable (we stayed in Bay side efficiency King) but deco very dated. Very clean accommodation with very friendly staff. Breakfast provided but we did not use this facility. We had a room with a good view over the bay. This hotel has a lot... More

We stayed in two different rooms while at the Sea Captain because we decided to come down a day earlier then planned for our wedding over memorial day weekend. First impression was a little off it seems out of place with all the giant hotels surrounding it. The outside is dated and it seems as though they are in the... More

Decided to stay based on previous trip advisor reviews. Hotel/room is Very clean! Decor is a little dated. Staff makes you feel at home and welcome. Would definitely stay again. Property on the Clearwater marina, great views. Walking distance to many restaurants/bars/activities.

My family and I wanted to take a weekend vacation to Clearwater, Florida. We live in central Florida which makes a day trip to either coasts difficult. After looking at many different hotels, and finding many places unavailable or out of our price range we decided to stay at the Sea Captain Resort. After getting there, we checked into the... More

Everything about this property was great till time of checkout. I had an email price quote confirmation that was sent 3 weeks prior, but when checking out I was informed that our bill would be 10% more. When I produced the emailed quote I was told that nothing could be done because of the new corporate ownership. Don't normally write... More
