Stayed for two days. The best part about it was being next to Shephard's if you like that sort of scene at least. Otherwise music blares from there until about 2AM which sucks if you really need a good nights sleep, which we did since we had to be up at 530AM the next day for Iron Girl. Anyways, parking... More

I stayed 7 days at this hotel and I have a list of pros and cons; a couple pros: The views are amazing; we had a room listed as a 'city view' and we still had an excellent view of the gulf and beach, with amazing palm trees. There is a private beach which as a lot of 'resort' qualities;... More

We weren't expecting anything spectacular when we booked this room, but I did expect to have maid service every day like most hotels do. We had no toilet paper, no fresh towels, trash wasn't emptied, and needed more pillows. At least one person was in the room all day long. No one stopped by. I called the front desk, and... More

GM625, General Manager at GulfView Hotel - On The Beach, responded to this review

Staffing at our hotel requires that all rooms are completed by 2:45pm, after which all housekeepers have completed their work day. A 3 pm leave time is not just common, but expected. Apparently your room was not serviced this day and I apologize for the inconvenience, however, there must of been a misunderstanding since the documentation showed " Do Not... More

We were very pleased with the hotel . Staff very helpful . Rooms a bit dated and dull . The view made up for that in spades . Was noisy from the band in the next hotel but it was not that bad . Sunsets were amazing . Would go back no problem .

The price of the hotel well exceeds its quality. Rooms are dull and dirty. Also, you can only bring one car. If for some reason you have two vehicles you are out of luck and will need to find parking else where ($20). The views from this hotel are amazing but that about all its worth. Spend the extra couple... More

We booked this room for a night on the beach at a reasonable price. Perhaps a 3/4 mile walk down to pier 60, but a beautiful walk on the beach. The beach at the hotel is small and private. Some nice shells before breakfast. The breakfast offered is Little Debbie stuff which is fine since that's more than I usually... More

. . . and the rooms are okay as well. Where else can you stay on Clearwater Beach with this location and the price? The property has enough comfort, and the views of the water are nice. The Gulfview Hotel provided me with a good start to my Florida vacation, as I later headed to Treasure Island. The front desk... More
