4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2013

I've stayed at several hotels in the Clearwater Beach area. This is by far the nicest one at an affordable price. Just drive across the causeway and you are at the beach. The bed is fantastic with linens that made me feel like I was on a cruise ship. The kitchenette and bath have granite countertops, a full-size frig, microwave, and two-burner cook-top. You get a seating area with a flat-screen tv that swivels around so you can watch tv in bed also.

Since this was my second time staying at this hotel, I noticed a few maintenance issues. The tub needed to be re-caulked since one corner was showing some mildew. The chair in the seating area needed to be replaced or reupholstered. It looked like a previous guest might have left a wet swimsuit or towel draped over the top of the chair which made the "leather" start to peel. It was a rather large area and was noticeable.

On both of my stays here, I found the front desk staff to be a little "snooty." I did have to wait around for several minutes to check out while another guest was complaining about charges on her bill. It seemed to me that she could have stepped away for a second to ask if all I needed to do was return my keycards.

The staff in the dining room was very hard working and personable. We saw several guests taking a lot of food away from the dining area after they ate, so they were obviously going to have it for lunch or dinner later. That's unfortunate since that left other guests waiting for the items to be refilled. I'm surprised they didn't have a sign up asking guests not to take food out of the dining room.

We stayed at the Residence Inn for one night. We were delayed so we didn't arrive until late. The room was lovely and the staff very friendly. It's only a short drive to Clearwater Beach and a much better value than staying on the actual beach. The breakfast was also good. Our room was almost as big as our NYC apartment. Well appointed, too.

Green Features: You have the option to not have fresh towels which I appreciate.

I wasn't expecting much (good or bad) of this "extended-stay" hotel near the courthouse downtown when my travel agent booked me for travel. The outside looks like any comparable hotel- location is good for downtown Clearwater and just across the bridge from the beach. I had a studio with a King and it was huge -full kitchen, sitting area, bedroom, bath and closet. I didn't need all of it, but it was nice to have the space. The staff was super accommodating and it looked like they had scheduled "activities" every night; you could buy some alcohol and frozen foods/snacks on site. Overall, a great place for business and wouldn't be bad for a beach vacation if you were looking to save a few bucks.

Room Tip: If you want to cook while you are on your trip, ask for a room with a kitchen.

Very clean hotel, 5-6 years old. The service was excellent. Breakfast good. The rooms are big, I recommend the one bedroom suite. Pool is average , no jacuzzi in the pool area. That was the only minus what I find . The internet is good. No restaurant nearby. If I come in Clearwater area , I will stay here again.

Our stay was very relaxing. We stayed in a king room on the top floor. It's only 5 minutes from Clearwater Beach. We made great use of the full ktichen and the space was laid out very well and very relaxing. The pool is a liitle small, but we were there for the beach so we didn't use it anyway. The breakfast was very good and changed a little each day we stayed which was nice.

Room Tip: We had a room on the 1st floor, but the laundry service and check in desk were right outside so that...

I wanted to take a moment and thank you for your kind comments. I was very pleased to read that you enjoyed not only our hotel but the beautiful Clearwater beach area. We hope that if you are in the Clearwater area again you select our property for your lodging accommodations. Please ask for a higher floor to make sure you are 100% comfortable with your stay. Thank you again.
