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

This is located between shepard's and Quality inn. Good Location but little far away from actual clearwater beach. Since i was there on a weekday they were kind enough to move me to a room with Gulfview. Good things about the room are Gulf view, Balcony with chairs and small table, stove, microwave, small fridge. Bad things...not so clean, needs... More

The staff are not so nice, they always are without concern for help the hosts. The elevator was dirty as the hall with the stinky carpet. Seems to have many fungi on the carpet. The room has a horrible smell and the carpet filthy. The bathroom had hair at the floor and inside the bathtub. The towels were patches of... More

As a Workaholic I like to take mini-vacations, and usually come to the Gulf View Hotel, as there is a 10% discount for returning guests, and no parking fees like other nearby hotels! They also have good amenities, including a Jacuzzi and Continental Breakfast. The room was clean, everything seem to be in working order, and the front desk Staff... More
