“Quaint and Comfortable”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2013

Our room at the Sta N Pla was a perfect location on the island! We were within walking distance of both North and South Clearwater Beach. In addition to this, our accommodations were comfortable and clean! Looking for a great place without spending tons? Stay at the Sta N Pla!

Room Tip: Our room was close to the bay seating area, that was nice for evening drinks!

Stayed at this property for 3 weeks in Feb. It is an older facility recently renovated and
upgrades are continuing.
Great location, 2 blocks from beach on quiet street on inland waterway.
Rates (compared to similar properties) seem a bit high. There is no discount for weekly
or multi weekly stays????
There is no maid service on daily, weekly basis. Change your own linens, towells, etc.
No night table in bedroom or clock radio/alarm. Although laundry facilites are available, the
rules are vague and guests come second after facility laundry.
No bath or kitchen mats. No oven pans.
Staff is very helpful but are few in number and they are responsible for 3 properties and
there is not always someone there with authority.
If one wants TV entertainment, it is limited. No movie channels.
We might return to this location if some of the above items are addressed.

We won a trip to Florida, and after visiting 3 other hotels who treated us horribly, we ended up in Sta'n Pla. It was a trip to remember, and Sta'n Pla motel only made it better. Everything Was perfect. We literally cried we have to leave. I would reccomend this motel to everyone !

The Clearwater area is full of small motels. We are used to staying a Hiltons and Embassy Suites so I wasn't expecting much. Our room was recently painted and was very clean. There was a mini refrigerator and coffeemaker in our room (but no coffee supplies, nor were we told where to find them). There is a TV but we didn't use it much. The shower had great water pressure. The outdoor pool was in good condition but cold in January. It is within 2 blocks of the ocean!! The manager was helpful in finding a place to eat and the food was really good where he recommended. While there are many motels in the area, our street was rather quiet and I didn't hear a lot of noise from other rooms.
Some of my surprises: We stayed 2 nights and there was no maid service on the 2nd morning to empty trash, replace soiled towels, add soap. There was no shampoo or other amenities other then a couple of small slivers of cheap soap. There were very few outlets to plug in curling irons, shavers, charge cell phones, etc. There is no counter space in the bathroom, nor is there a shelf, so I could recommend bringing your toiletries in a bag that you can hang from the shower rod. There are no hooks in the bathroom either to hang clothes, towels, toiletry bags on. There is no towel rack to dry your wet towels on either...only a small rack over the toilet with hand towels/wash clothes.
Great value for the money if you are okay with motels.

We came from Europe and stayed 1 week with my friends at Sta 'n Pla Motel. For that price we had great vacation. It was only steps away from the beach. Beside they just renovated the motel so it was nice and clean. It was very close to everything (restaurants, bars, stores...) but at the motel was peaceful and quiet. We will defenetly come back next year.

We booked 2 nights @ the Sta'n Pla Motel in May 2012. We found this motel easy to get to from Tampa Airpirt, the bed was comfortable, the atmosphere was calm and quiet. This motel is in the final process of renovations and is a great choice if you want to stay @ one of the safer, affordable motels on Clearwater Beach.
I would recommend this motel on Clearwater Beach !
We look forward to returning to the Sta'n Pla Motel.

We stayed at Sta' n Pla Motel in the middle of May and found it to be a nice place and within walking distance of the beach and various shops.
Ulli was very helpful with any questions that we had and overall it was a very good experience and we will definitely be going back ..
