We stayed at the hotel 4/8/14 to 4/15/14. We had a great time. While the building is old and dated, we had a very clean room. We stayed on the 4th floor over looking the gulf and had great views of the beach and sunsets from our balcony. The hotel is conventiently loctaed to reach all the activities at the... More

This is not the hotel for the partier they have strict rules and no refunds if broken me and my boyfriend are not the partying type but we had a room 112 right near the office and could... More

We stayed a week for our winter vacation and got a very full understanding of the place. First there are several good things to say about this hotel experience: * The staff was always friendly, professional, and polite * The maid kept the room extremely clean. The hotel is right on the beach and it's impossible not to track in... More

We spend two nights here after taking a cruise. We had a family suite on the 3rd floor--room 305. We were looking for a hotel with a pool within walking distance to the beach and for a great price. That is exactly what we found with NO regrets. We arrived very early on day on for check-in and front desk... More

Location is what this hotel has going for it, right across the street from beautiful Clearwater Beach. Other than that, it's a tired property. We stayed 2 days, January 23-24. Here's my experience: • The bathroom vanity is part of the living space, so when you're doing anything, makeup, hairdrying, tooth brushing, everyone gets to enjoy the experience too. •... More

I stayed here just for one night at a good price. Location is great. It overlooks clearwater beach and you can walk to the beach. For the price we paid, it was worth the stay. We were upgraded to a room with a mini fridge/sink and our other guests had a connecting room which was nice to be able to... More

It is as cheap of a room as you would expect for $80. But the mattress was hard and squeaky...floor would have been much softer! Planned to stay 2 nights but my back could only handle one. Had to move to different hotel.

I have never stayed in Clearwater Beach area, so decided to stay at a few different hotels up/down CW & St.Pete's beaches so as to help decide where to stay long-term next time. I looked for those that had high 2's/3's ratings and were on the beach. I chose this one for 1st two days and the Beachview Inn (avoid... More

It's an average hotel but great service. I changed my room reservations 3 times and Kristen at the front desk was just as helpful each time. The view is great but the hotel isn't the best cosmetically.

When we made our reservation we knew we had a great deal and a great location but we had no idea just how great it would actually turn out to be. From the moment we arrived we were in heaven! Of course we weren't expecting luxury but what we got was just perfect for us. A beautiful view from the... More
