This was a very nice hotel. The staff were excellent. The room was lovely and well appointed and clean. The pool deck was lovely and the pool heated. A quick walk to the next hotel for food and drink was easy and enjoyable. A nice little beach area with beautiful views. Only a short walk to an IHOP and other... More

It was an average hotel room but the view was great. The staff was nice and our room was clean. The pool isn't heated but it was OK. I spent a lot of time in the hot tub or on the private beach. It is a short walk from many fun attractions and pier 60. If you're looking for good... More

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
