My wife and I booked a 3 night stay here, it sounded great and the reviews looked good, and the price was right. What a nightmare! Next door, literally feet away, a new hotel is being built blocking out all light and views to one side. The building noise starts at 0700hrs and ends at 1700hrs Monday to Friday. The... More

The first thing I noticed was Shephard's Resort, which was next door and extremely loud. Had music pumping all day and night. I was really glad my hotel room was on the opposite side of the building. The staff were nice and the parking is key as well. My room was ok, although there is construction going up on that... More

Anytime we take a vacation to Clearwater beach we stay here. It is less expensive than other hotels around. While we were there our air conditioner went out. The maintenance man was there right away. He pulled the old one out and new one in . It took less than 10 minutes. Perfect location on the beach. Also both hotels... More

Very friendly staff. Smaller hotel, with a small beach and pool. Loved the location. It was close to shopping and food but not right in the hustle and bustle of the crowds. Just a 10 min walk to the center. I also loved having the 2 burner stove and fridge in the room...

My wife and I spent one night here and were extremely disappointed. The entire hotel, including our room, is tired and worn out. There were large holes in our carpet and the room in general felt unclean. Our room was on the fourth floor with a nice view looking out at the water and the pool of the hotel next... More

OK, so the first thing that will make you make a reservation is the "Beach Front Pictures". Those pictures are taken from other angles, they DONOT have a beach front space, that simple, so dont be fulled. THere is a little space on the right and a little bigger on the left which is mostly on the Quality In Hotel... More

We went on a third party to book the room. No confirmation was sent. We went ahead and booked a room at barefoot, which by the way was a great find all around. We spoke to the front desk and was told he was going to resell the room...long story short....they resold the room and told us they didnt. No... More

As discussed, the reservation was made online via booking.com which automatically generates an email confirmation. The room was reserved for your party, and removed from inventory. The hotel was 100% ocuppied. Cancellation policy is 24hr in advance. The transaction was processed as a NO SHOW and charges have been posted. The request for refund has been denied. After further investigation... More

We stayed at this hotel for two nights, and didn't sleep until 3 am any of the nights because of loud music. The room was dirty and smelled like a wet dog... The "breakfast" was a couple of cakes in the reception, so we had to buy breakfast in a restaurant close by. The wifi didn't work, either did the... More

The hotel does not offer any discounts or refunds for Shepard's music.I apologize that it was a nuisance during your stay, but unfortunately we have no authorization over the intensity or duration of it. The same room was rented the next evening without any action on our part. No issues reported. More
