We spent last weekend at a wonderful motel. I was a little nervous to make reservations at a place we had never heard of before. Thanks to tripadvisor I booked knowing what this motel was like. We were not disappointed at all!!!! The location is perfect! We took our two adult sons and our daughter in law..........what a treat to... More

We had a fabulous stay at the resort! We were in Rm 2, which was spacious (king bed in bedroom, full size fold out couch) and well equipped (stove, oven, microwave, full fridge/freezer) although offered NO view. Pool was small but wonderful - very clean! Staff very friendly and helpful! SO CLOSE to the beach we could run back for... More

Yes everything is amazing at our stay in Clearwater, however I must disagree strongly with the comment about the Palm Pavillion.....it's probably not the first time someone has had a hair in their food...however, I think that while focuing on the hair, you may have missed the most fabulous and breathtaking sunsets that can ever be seen by the naked...

My husband and I had a wonderful stay at the Sea Captain. We had a great second floor room with a huge bay window overlooking the boats. The service was amazing, the location was perfect - just 5 mins walk to the beach. The bed was comfy and the pool and hot tub was amazing. If I return to Clearwater... More

We just returned from a week at the Sea Captain resort. It was just as clean and pleasant as the reviews said and we're going to go back this Christmas too. All I can say is that for me, it seems like " classic Florida". Simple, handy, quiet, great view, convenient location and a quiet expectation that guests are to... More

After weeks of searching for a "mom and pop" hotel and reading countless reviews, we opted for the Sea Captain and our work paided off more than I'd expected. My wife and I and our 2-1/2 year old son stayed at the Sea Captain 9/15/05 - 9/21/05 (room 7). Very family friendly hotel with all the comforts of home and... More

I found this lovely little resort on trip advisor. My husband and I found this to be a lovely spot to stay. The management was very helpful. The room was very clean. At night we could see the boats coming in from our room. It was a really pretty sight with all their lights. I would recommend this resort to... More
