“Surprise bargain!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2014

My fiance and I took off for Florida on a whim, with no reservations or set plans. After spending a delightful two days with a friend in West Palm Beach, we headed up to Clearwater to catch a couple Phillies spring training games. After the first game, we drove over to the beach and started looking for a hotel. We stumbled onto the Royal Canadian, for under $100 a night!!! We were pretty leery, but the room was spacious and clean. The shower was a little small but the pressure was phenomenal! The unit had a full kitchen and there was already ice in the freezer!! We didn't take advantage of the pool but it looked fantastic, and we had a short walk across the street to the beach. Someone was watching out for us on that trip!! We will definitely stay there again. There were even a couple of decent restaurants in walking distance.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2014

We pulled up and honestly I told the manager I must see a room. I knew it would be terrible!! Boy, was I wrong. Our room was brand new. We walked in and the smell of fresh paint permeated! New stove, New refrigerator, New tile, New ac with remote, New flat screen tv on the wall. I have never ever ever been in such a clean place. I didn't see any other rooms but mine was fantastic. All rooms look over the heated pool. You are literally steps from the beach which is just across the street. This is on the"dead end" of Clearwater beach. So peaceful. It was spring break and the rate was only $85.00 a night. The bathroom is old..pink and blue tile BUT it is immaculate..clean clean clean. This is not a 5 star resort..but it's cleaner than one! Lots of lounge chairs at the pool, picnic tables and patio chairs. You shouldn't pass this by. At least look at a room. Maybe you will be as happy as us. Within walking distance to tons of shopping. Convenience stores and pharmacy just blocks away.
