“Nice afternoons spent by the dock of the bay”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2013

In our first visit to Clearwater, we felt a bit overwhelmed by the crowds, the cars and the packed beaches (packed with teens). So, for our taste, Chart House was a comfortable bayside location with a nice view of Clearwater bay. Our room was on the first floor, right across from the docks with lots of sailboats. That made for pleasant afternoons on our private patio letting the waves lap, the breeze blow and the sun get lower. However, when the sun when down we discovered that the docks became busy, and the traffic by our room was distracting and sometimes annoying. Our room was right next to the pool entrance and was also the entrance and exit to 2 other rooms. The slamming of the door got to be annoying. This was perhaps exacerbated by the absence of hotel staff after 7:00 pm until sunrise or so. Our room was mostly up to date, with an out of date TV, an oldish looking fan and the occasional flying bug. The first date, the floor was dirty but day 2 it was cleaned. The patio could have been swept and washed. And the toilet almost stopped. There is wireless free internet, but it did not reach to our room. I stepped into the hall and my bars went way up. The staff seemed not to believe it was a problem. Of the three day staff we encountered, the owner was pleasant and very nice; Bill, the weekend staff guy was tremendous and helpful in orienting us to the area events, restaurants and transportation. The Monday guy seemed unconcerned about our slow toilet. I think we might stay there again, but in a room that is higher and hopefully good signal.

Room Tip: Get a higher room-2nd and above

We stayed in on the top floor. Overall, the hotel is nice - good deal. Our suite was large and had a nice view of the marina. Diane, the hotel manager was very nice! She was very welcoming and sweet.

Our house cleaning crew did an average job. They vacuumed and made the beds. However, the floors in the kitchen and bath were in need of a good washing before and after our stay. Also, the ceiling fans in all rooms need to be looked at! They are quite dusty and many loose screws.

The pool is a little small but heated!! It was clean.

I would definitely stay there again.

This was our third year at the Charthouse and we will be returning next January for an extended stay (5 to 6 weeks). There are several reasons we like it so much.It starts with the hospitality shown by the entire staff especially the manager Diane Bates.The rooms are large bright and very clean.we also love the location as it is quiet and yet easily walkable to everything Including the fabulouse Clearwater beach. Finally the view from the rooms overlooking the marina are fabulous. My wife and I would highly recommend it.

I stayed at Chart House with my wife and 2 young kids and we had a great time. They didn't have any cribs, but there was enough room in the spacious suite to set up a play pen for my daughter to sleep in.

The microwave, coffee maker, self-laundry and fridge are all important amenities when travelling with young kids.

The location was great. Close enough to stroll to Pier 60 and the beach and far enough away to avoid the crowds and noise. The pool area was partly shaded in the late afternoon which was nice.

Diane at the front desk was a great help - even allowing me behind the desk to print out some baseball tickets I purchased online.

There was no password on the free wifi for the first few days of our stay (which may have affected the speed), but towards the end, a password was required which helped keep nearby freeloaders off the network.

The TV could've used a little upgrade and an in-room safe would be nice, but other than that, we were happy with all the amenities.

The harbour view room was great. Next time, I'll bring my fishing rod!

Room Tip: Bay side room on the first floor was great for easy ins & outs and access to the pool

Thank you for taking the time to let us know about your recent stay. We are glad you enjoyed your room and all of the amenities. We have rectified the password on the internet now...so all those freeloaders won't be bogging down the lines! As for the TV's; we are in the process of upgrading all of the TV's to 37 and 42" flat screens. Next time you visit, please be sure to stop by Jimmy's Fish House for some of the best cuisine on the beach - it's located right on the water and offers all types of foods and a great atmosphere. And definitely bring your pole next time; you never know what you might catch! We look forward to having you stay with us again.

We booked this hotel at the last minute during the second week of March. We only stayed one night but next time, it will be longer. The view over the marina provided a wonderful sunset experience. The suite was immaculate and comfortable for five of us. We were welcomed as though we were long-time customers. We have already recommended the hotel to several family members and friends.

Room Tip: Ask for a marina view!
