DIRTY, MOLDY,Health Inspector needs to take charge. Day Manager and Night manager would not give me my money back. I prepaid for 3 nights thru Hotel.COM and stayed not even a full day. I was there from 3 Am to 10 AM and they would not give me my money back at least 2 days. I booked thru Hotel.com. Never... More

My family and I stayed here for a week and didn't want to go home. It's location is perfect. The rooms are clean with great views of the ocean. The beach is so peaceful and clean. Everything about this hotel was perfect. I would recommend staying here to everyone.

To start off the guy at the front desk is very rude. On the phone and in person. The hotel is ok. It has a small beach that you share with all the jet ski/ boat rentals from shepards. The hotel carpet was gross and smelled I refused to let my kid walk around without shoes the balcony door would... More

We stayed here in May around Mothers day and found it a very nice hotel but in need of a revamp. The staff were excellent, especially Al at reception. The pool area was really clean with plenty of sun loungers. Only thing is a construction site next door !!!! We didn't hear any noise to be fair but it had... More

The Gulfview Hotel is an older yet reasonably priced hotel. We have stayed there multiple times over the years. Located on the inlet with a pool, hot tub and small sand beach it has rooms with either a “city view” or partial gulf view. Up until last year, they provided a light continental breakfast of pastry, coffee and juices. They... More

It's a very economical hotel on the Beach in sought after Clearwater Beach. When we stayed they were in the process of renovations. Of course the hotel is VERY old, but by the time they are done with the renovations it will be so much nicer. The room we stayed in was old, musky smelling and in dire need of... More

This hotel is great. It is situated right on the beach. The view alone was worth staying here. The hotel itself had a pool and outdoor hot tub just steps from the beach. You can rent several things (jet skis for instance) a few feet from the hotel entrance. The hotel next door has some sort of club and you... More

Second time staying here and was not disappointed. Clean room, great view of the gulf, music from Shephard's Resort next door! I wouldn't recommend this place for families with small children as the music can be loud and continue through midnight, and there is a lot of partying on the beach. Pool is kinda small but when you are right... More

I have never had such a horrible experience at a hotel ever. Loud, noisy, old cramped, guest services was practically non existent. The place was so bad, we drove home at 0230 in the morning and vowed never to return. This is probably a great place for singe spring breakers, but not for families. But then again, as we waited...
