I'm a little late writing this review since we were there last June but this place was wonderful so I had to share! It's right there by the beach - they have the Palm Pavilion bar that is oceanfront which will block a lot of the ocean view from the rooms but it was great to have right there as they had music every day & it was a great place to grab lunch or a drink.
Rooms- We stayed in an gulf front/view king room- I think it was 2nd or 3rd floor - their rooms do not have balconies. They do have a viewing deck on the roof though. The rooms are SUPER clean - cleanest room I've ever seen for a place that's beachfront! They're all recently updated as well.
The resort- We didn't use the pool since we hung out on the beach - the beaches are beautiful. They do have free parking for one car- and they are VERY strict on enforcing that only hotel guests park there, it's great & makes you feel at ease. Everyone we came across at the resort was super friendly & helpful. They even helped us with questions on the area since it was our first time to Clearwater. It's right across from Rockaway Grill - it's across the parking lot from there. We walked everywhere- including to the Pier (which is a must see, the Sunset festival they have every night is great, full of vendors & entertainment) You can also catch the "Jolly Trolley" that is close by if you're not up for walking or want to go somewhere further down.
All in all, we'd definitely come back- the friendliness of the staff, cleanliness of the rooms & the location is why! Oh, and they offer return guest discounts :) Unfortunately we haven't had the chance to use that yet lol
