“Wow!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013

We have just returned from a fantastic five night stay at this resort.After the parks etc in Orlando this was a perfect place to unwind.From the moment we arrived the Manage Lynn was very helpful from arrival to Departure and through our stay.The Units are spacious and we hada one bedroom with Tv,sofa,recliner dining area,Fully equipped kitchen including Microwave.Good bathroom with towels provided.Air con throughout units.The ground are beautiful and are well kept with a very nice pool.Bbq available on site.
Fishing rods are available for Guests use and this was my favourite part fishing off the pier of an evening with a few beers and caught myself a few small sharks and a couple of Biggies :-).
Launderette on site which is extremely handy and we used it well.Only two minutes walk to the and beautiful beach ten min walk to Pier 60.Also bars and restaurants all close by.
Only reason i didnt give it full marks was room next to us had the child from hell imo, and i was woken at 06.30am on the button each morning with the noise from this kid but thats not hotels fault.
We had a smashing holiday in Clearwater one of the best and this property is fully deserving of its number 1 reputation.
We shall return...

Room Tip: Rooms near dock with stunning views.

Tagged a week at East Shore onto a 2 week Orlando theme park expedition and we are so glad we came! It was a fabulous place to really unwind and relax, Lynn and the other guests were very welcoming and we enjoyed a couple of 'cook outs' with our new friends!! The accommodation was excellent - clean, fully equipped and the most comfy beds we have experienced!!! The pool area and gardens were spotless and provided a tranquil place to read and relax. Our 2 children (10 & 7) were made very welcome and they thoroughly enjoyed meeting new friends of all ages! It is definately the friendliest place we have ever stayed!! A very short walk taking chairs provided by East Shore was all it took to get to the pristine white sandy beach - paradise!!! In a great central position but tucked away to ensure it was peaceful, great jetty to wander along & fish off - managed to spot a few dolphins that came very close!! Brilliant laundry facilities meant that we hardly had anything to wash when we got home which was fantastic. We will definitely be making a return visit to East Shore - just don't tell everyone how great it is!!!!!!

Room Tip: All great - we stayed in 6s which had great views from all angles!!

After spending 5 days at Disneyworld, this was the perfect place to relax and recover. We had the perfect apartment, facing the water. My family back home was able to see us from the webcam, and that was fun. We went fishing off the pier. The fellow guests were so friendly and helped us with the fishing. This place is very, very clean and feels like home! Clearwater Marine Aquarium is just across the water, very close by. Manager Lynn gave our little girl a book about Winter the dolphin as a gift. Thank you so much for your hospitality!

We have stayed at East Shore Resort twice. We are excited about going again this summer. My husband and I have stayed many places "on" the beach. As you know, those places can be quite expensive, so we decided to look for another place. My husband started looking on trip advisor for reviews of other places. Long story "shorter"...he saw that East Shore Resort was rated #1. I looked at the pictures and thought..."well, that look's "alright", but I was not very impressed because it was not really the kind of place we liked to stay. (the pictures ALWAYS looked better than the places really were...in my past experiences, so i was a bit concerned that this might be the case here too). Anyway, he booked it. When we arrived, we were greated with a very warm welcome by Miss Lynn. The place to my surprise was BETTER than the pictures!!!! Wow!!!! CLEAN, CLEAN and even MORE CLEAN!!!! Not a hair or a speck of dust on anything! I was afraid that crossing the road to the beach might be a problem with little ones....nope not a problem at all! They have laundry with the soap provided. Full kitchens and CLEAN gas grills! You can walk to the pier, shops and restaurants. The best vacation we have ever had! Fishing at the resort is so much fun! Seriously....we feel like we are at our home away from home at East Shore Resort.

We stayed at East Shore at the beginning of April 2013 and we had an incredible time there.
We were looking for a nice place to stay near the beach and we were really surprise to find such a nice and really clean appartment, perfectly equipped as home. The owners are really nice people who made us feel comfortable.
The place has a clean pool and a beatiful dock where you can just spend hours looking at the bay and the landscape.
Beatiful place Clearwater, we had an amazing time there.

Can you keep a secret? Then do not tell everyone about this place. From the moment we arrived in our taxi,my wife and I were met with warmth and friendliness from the manager Lynn and owners Bill and Terry.It is not hard to see why people book here year after year.
We have just returned home having spent a week here and a week in Orlando. East shore offers much more than a hotel can ever offer without having to pay through the nose for the service.
We stayed in the studio and it was clean and comfortable,it met our needs,having a living room,kitchen and sleeping area with a separate shower etc.
You have access to washing machines and driers with all the powder etc provided,my wife stated this was a big help to her as she thinks there is nothing worse than coming home and having to do the washing.
There is a jetty overlooking the bay and I spent many enjoyable hours fishing and talking to the local wildlife. There was even a Dolphin in the area swimming around.
You are situated a couple of minutes away from the beach and even closer to restaurants and we tried a few of them.
The motel has a couple of bikes which we used,although we are not bikers, but we enjoyed them and ended up doing about 20 miles.
If like me you don't enjoy driving when on holiday, there is access to the local jolly trolley and buses.
Will I return? You BET..but don't tell everyone.
Thanks to all of you at East Shore for making us so welcome.

Room Tip: If at all possible try and get a room around the jetty area.

My husband and I had the pleasure of staying at East Shore just before Christmas. We had a second floor apartment with beautiful views over the Bay. The unit was very clean and well furnished. We liked being able to have some of our meals at "home", taking advantage of the bbq's on site and the Publix grocery store. There are also some nice restaurants in the area such as Island Way Grille-try their early-bird special. Clearwater is a nice area with a beautiful wide beach which you can walk to in 5 minutes . There are beach chairs at the complex which you can easily transport to the beach with you.There is also a small pool on premises or you can relax on the dock. For a day trip take the Jolly Trolley to Tarpon Springs for a little taste of Greece. I would highly recommend East Shore as THE place to stay in Clearwater-the owners and the lovely manager, Lynn, work hard to ensure that this property maintains it's number one rating. Lynn goes out of her way to ensure that visitors enjoy their stay-a real "people person". If you want a relaxing vacation, this is the place to be!
