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...

This hotel is decent. The rooms are dank and outdated, the hallways and stairwells aren't clean, and the staff is rude...BUT the pool area is nice and right on the beach. Everything is in walking distance and there is a tiki bar right next door. There are certainly better hotels but for the price this one isn't terrible

We arrived sat. Night of Memorial Day weekend to a dank, dirty and crowded hotel that had not been maintained since the 80's. The mattresses were so lumpy that good will would have rejected them. none of the security locks on the pool or side entrance worked. While I watched my kids swim in the pool wondering why the water... More

I must start by saying that we really had a good time! The hotel location is great. It has a kitchenette which was fantastic cause it helped save a lot of money.. It was perfect for those eggs and toast with coffee to start the day and hot dogs and burgers for lunch! The hotel needs some upgrades and probably... More

Room smelled musty. Not vacuumed. Stairwells dirty. No beach furniture. the door to our room had visible signs of multiple repairs. Not always easy to lock. Staff impersonal. Would not stay there again.
