“I Couldn't Have Asked For More”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2012

This is my second time at the Parker Manor (I'm disappointed that the flattering revue I wrote two years ago isn't still on this website), and I can't say enough good about it. It was so beautiful, friendly, and serene that my friend and I often sat out on our deck overlooking the pool, dock, and waterway at night -- rather than going drinking in bars. White Christmas tree lights, wound around palm trees and the grounds, reflected off the pool and water. Fish (and sometimes dolphins) were jumping in the canal. Everything we wanted was there, including a jacuzzi. We had a washer and dryer,flat-screen televisions in both bedrooms and in the living room. The furniture was luxurious, and the unit was huge. The place is IMMACULATE.
More importantly, Dawn and Bud, undoubtedly, are the best hosts on the Gulf. They're so friendly, it's hard to leave.
The location is perfect -- just a short walk to the beach, restaurants, and shops.

Parker Manor is the best! We had a wonderful time staying there. Our accommodations were perfect. The fact that we had laundry facilities in the apartment was such a bonus. It is within walking distance of so many attractions. One night we walked to the Pier and enjoyed facepainting, a fire eater and bouncing on trampolines attached by bungy cords! On the way back we stopped for carry out pizza. Dawn and Bud are super! They go out of their way to make your stay enjoyable. We are already planning several return trips to Parker Manor. If you are looking for value and warm, comfortable surroundings, Parker Manor is the place!!!

Parker Manor is the best. We have been spending the month of March there for the past 10 years. Many of their customers have been coming there year after year. I don't know of any other resort in the area that has that continutity. We have stayed in the one bedroom apts, both the regular and deluxe and find them quite comfortable, with many amenities. TV in bedroom and living room, your own personal parking space, beach towels and equipment for fishing is also provided. A short 2 block walk to the beach, and a multitude of restaurants. You can walk out your door and be right on the inland waterway within their property. Many places to sit and relax whether it be sun or shade. We have made many friends there in the past 10 years. Thanks again Dawn and Bud for providing us with a wonderful place to regenerate.

We have been coming to Clearwater Beach for many years and tried different accomodation but this is BY FAR the best we have stayed in .. already we are looking forward to next year ! The hosts are warm and friendly - Dawn and Bud can't do enough for you - they do MORE THAN ENOUGH ! The atmosphere is laid back and welcoming - plenty of places to relax in or out of the sun - and easy access to numerous restaurants and the beach. You can even catch the dolphins swimming by if you are lucky ! We would highly recommend this resort to anyone who wants a peaceful stay but close to "the action" too .. you wont regret it !

Room Tip: All the 2 bed rooms have a view of the channel although we found it easy to find a spot by the water...

What can I say about this wonderful place that hasn't been said already. We have just returned from our second visit and we have already booked our third. Parker Manor has everything, a beautiful location, clean accommodation and reasonable rates and helpful friendly owners in Dawn & Bud. Nothing is too much trouble for them. There are clean beach towels available which you can change as many times a day as you wish. Also fishing tackle and bait is readily available that`s if you fancy fishing off the Resorts docks . The two pools are great one being a spa pool the other swimming pool but both fairly large in comparison with other motels in the area I love the deck area with Tiki huts and plently of loungers and shade if required. It is beautiful at night all lit up, spectacular!! Your rooms towels and bed linen etc are replaced as often as you require just need to put them outside your room by 11a.m and new clean ones are left to replace them. Parker Manor is located in a quieter area of Clearwater Beach but there are many good restaurants and activities in the vacinity. Also check out the Trolley Bus - stops nearby and these can take you to most places of interest. Parker Manor also has a small laundry so if you require to do some washing and drying it can be done for a small charge. What more can I say a lovely lovely place!!!

Parker manor resort is in a great location, spotlessly clean apartments , swimming pool and spar pool. we had a 2 bedroom apartment which was very spacious and well equipped and the beds were extremely comfortable. 2 minutes walk from the beach and restaurants. Also if you do not want to drive this is a perfect location as the local transport is so easy to use to get around . Dawn and bud are exceptional owners and hosts and go out of their way to make your stay as enjoyable and pleasurable as they can. Definitely going back in fact already booked for next year.
