We travelled around Florida doing some of the tourist things in June 2012 when we came across this motel near Clearwater Beach. This is a beautiful beach and we decided to go back and stay, using this motel as an overnight stop.
It's not a palace. It's convenient for a great beach with parking at the front for the hire car. The rooms are basic, the air-conditioning a bit noisy but it was clean and comfortable with great hosts. There were a few shops (including groceries if you want to do self catering), nice bars or restaurants nearby and a pleasant view of the sunset from the roof-top balcony after a great day on the beach. We had a good sleep here and then back to the villa in Orlando the following morning.
If you need anything, they'll point you in the right direction or some things like hairdrier, beach chairs, toys might be available to borrow.
If you need a bed for the night near Clearwater, this is perfectly fine. We'd have stayed longer but there was a hurricane on its way! Time to get gone...
