I stayed at this wonderful Motel between 11 - 18 June 2013. The 2 owners (Stella & Edward) are the 2 sweetest, honest and hard working people I've met in a long time. The cost to stay at Sands Point Motel is very low compared to other far less desirable
motels in less desirable locations. Stella & Edward both came from Poland many years ago and lived in Chicago for a long time before buying this motel. Their their old world charm and Polish accents is still with them though.
The rooms have all been renovated in recent years, and my room was spotless, cool and comfortable. The motel has WIFI, free parking - and a refrigerator, microwave, cable TV and a coffee maker in each room. The bed in my room was especially comfortable.
The motel is ideally located and close to everything. It is a 5 min walk to Clearwater Beach, and only about a mile and a half from Sand Key State Park and beach - which I preferred to go to because it is less crowded than Clearwater Beach, and parking there is only $5 for the entire day.
Clearwater Beach is not very crowded on weekdays; but on weekends it does get rather crowded. I enjoyed going to Sand Key Beach in the morning and again 2 hours before sunset and the whole days cost just a single $5 for parking.
Sands Point Motel has a nice inground pool, and you can walk to many restaurants nearby. I loved to eat outside at the nearby Beach Shanty 2 for breakfast. I would also walk to the very close and fabulous Post Corner Restaurant - and sit out on their porch and catch the cool Bay breezes for both breakfast and dinner.
I must have been lucky. Because during the week I stayed at this motel, all the other guests were very nice and it was easy to strike up conversations with them. Perhaps that was because they were also happy and relaxed at this wonderful and quiet Motel.
Edward says his wife Stella loves to cook. She often brought trays of delicious spicy chicken wings and sausages she was happy to offer up for guests to sample. /s/ Steve Keohane, USN (Retired)
They are all quiet rooms. The hotel is built with concrete, so I heard no noise from either other ro...
