“Consistently Wonderful!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2012

Have stayed a few times now. When visiting the Clearwater area, this is now our place to stay. Vicki & Jim (and the staff) are terrific hosts. Always accommodating and a joy to deal with. Anything you need they provide. The location is nice as it's tucked away from the high-traffic beach area but is still walkable and it overlooks the scenic intercoastal waters. I've seen dolphin outside my window! Plus it's steps away from Frenchy's Saltwater Cafe - a real bonus. A terrific place to stay!

Our stay here at the oasis was more enjoyable than ever expected. The staff and management are hands down the most helpful staff I have ever encountered. This on top of the atmosphere the retro look of the motel gives leads to an incredible experiance. Everything from the motel is within walking distance, Please do not hesitate to choose this motel for your stay in Clearwater Beach.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with acsess to the back patio.. Amazing sunrises and a fishing pier.

We just loved our stay last June. The place is so nice since the renovation. Super nice staff. Close to everything you need. The rooms were very clean and well appointed. Great eats and drinks nearby. Peir 60 park at sunset is lovely. Lots to do and see. Very nice for a romantic getaway. Loved the coffee and free DVDs in the lounge. We will for sure be back.

Great view of the intercoastal waterway and short walk to beach. Great renovation and so clean. A different experience from a big resort hotel.

There's a fun retro feel to the hotel ... much like MadMen and it's immaculate! Great views of the harbor and the pool. Clean and spacious kitchen and bathroom. Flat screen TV and IPod docking station! The staff treats you like family and are so very helpful. Not to mention you are within an easy walking distance to 3 of the Frenchy's restaurants and the beach! Have a little Frenchy's Crawl, watch the sunset then simply walk back to your room. A MUST STAY!!! Don't miss out on this local's favorite!

Room Tip: ANY! They're all great!

It was our second stay at the Oasis and we love it there!
A friendly staff, cleanliness & a maintained facility are big factors for us when we decide how to spend our much need vacation time. You definitely get the best of this at the Oasis. The managers "Vickie & Jim", and the cleaning girls are very friendly, helpful, and great people. They are very proud of the Oasis and this shows in the maintenance and cleanliness of this Motel. Its in a great location, just walking distance to the best restaurants, beautiful beaches, and night life. The patio balcony is a great place to enjoy my morning coffee with a view. If you're lucky you might even catch the dolphins playing in the bay!

We be back in March of 2012 and can't wait............. Ron & Brenda ..... Springfield, Illinois
