“Wow! I will be back for sure!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2011

My boyfriend and I took our first vacation together in Clearwater Beach, FL last week. We stayed at the Camelot, where he has stayed before, for 5 nights. I'm telling you I can't say enough nice things about this place! I read a couple of the negative reviews and I think it's a shame. First of all, the best thing about the Camelot are the ladies that work there - Vicki and Wendy. Helpful, friendly, nice and fun are just a few of their great qualities.

We rented a car but didn't need it for our time in Clearwater. The Camelot is walking distance from everything. The beach is across the street or you can walk a little bit to be near Pier 60. There is a party store, gas station and laundry mat within feet of the hotel. Clearwater's best restaurants and bars are just a few minutes walk. We really like Frenchy's Rockaway, Cooters and Crabby Bills. They all have awesome food not to mention great specials for happy hour.

Our room was nice and cozy and clean. The bed was comfy and it was great to have a kitchen with a fridge in the room. Anything we needed, Wendy and Vicki were right there to help us out. The hotel was sold out during our stay yet we had a peaceful and quiet environment the whole time.

So don't listen to those negative reviews - the Camelot is great and we will be back for our next vacation.

Thanks Vicki and Wendy!

Room Tip: I would pick a room with a tub as the shower stalls are a little tight for leg shaving. :)

Camelot is a great little art deco hotel just steps from beautiful Clearwater Beach. The rooms are spacious, well maintained and spotlessly clean. The courtyard pool area is inviting, and never a noise problem even with families or children present. Camelot attracts diverse guests and is within walking distance of some of the area's best casual and fine dining restaurants.

From my first contact with Vicki, everything was just perfect! Her friendly and out-going personality made us feel like family. The accommodations at the Royal Camelot were clean, welcoming and economical. We were offered extra towels and toiletries daily. The hospitality is second to none. We will definitely stay at the Roayl Camelot again!

Room Tip: You can't go wrong with these condos. Good quality! Good value!

Stayed @ the Camelot for the Clearwater Jazz Holiday music fest (Oct 14 - 17, 2011). We didn't know whether to stay downtown (where the festival was being held) or near the beach. We were really looking for a place just to lay our heads down at night. So glad we decided to stay near the beach! Had the best of both worlds! The Camelot was in walking distance to everything we needed (fantastic food, wonderful drinks, live music, sports bars, shopping, etc.) and then we took the Jolley Trolley (LOVE that ride) to the music festival downtown (only $4.50/person for an all day pass). Bus stop was right across the street from the Camelot. We were with another couple (had separate rooms) and had no intention of cooking, but we did need a few groceries. There was a convenience store right next door to the Camelot with everything we needed. There's also a gas/convenience store across the street, but we never had to go there. There's also a really nice laundromat right next door to the Camelot, but we never had to go there either. Anyways, if you are looking for a clean, quaint place to stay you've found it. The only staff person we came in contact with was Wendy. We were only there for a short time, but made a life long friend :). ANYTHING you needed, I'm sure Wendy would have found a way to get it. We loved the way you could just walk right out your room and always find friendly people to converse with. Being from south Louisiana, we love meeting people. Others staying at the Camelot would just walk out their rooms and strike up a conversation.....just like that. Met people who come to the Camelot every year just because.....that says a lot. Didn't get to meet Vickie and didn't get to use the pool......so maybe next year :)

Room Tip: The only noise I ever heard was the front gates closing, but it wasn't too bad. If noise bother...

My wife and I are down at the beach here almost every weekend, either at one of our favorite beach bars or just hanging out at the beach. There was a group of us getting together (about 20 or so) to spend the weekend down here for Frenchy's 30th Block Party so we all converged on the Royal Camelot and I don't think we could have picked a better place. Vicki was the best...the place is a throwback to when times at the beach were spent at little quaint places not the mega resorts. A place where you can get to know the other guests staying there as well as having a great time with your friends. the rooms were great and the staff very friendly and helpful. Location, location, location......you are within walking distance to everything that Clearwater Beach has to offer. A great place to just get away and relax.

I live near Clearwater Beach but a group of us wanted to stay the weekend at the beach. We had 6 rooms and checked in on Friday and got settled in to our rooms. We all had the suites which are all decorated a little different and cute. All of the rooms are super clean with nice size fridge and gas stove. Vicki is the best and if our rooms were ready we could check in a little early...which we did. The location is perfect because you are steps away from both the Palm Pavilion and Frenchy's. Up on the roof is a grilling area that is great in the evening. I had such a great time I stayed an extra night and planning to do this from time to time. Tell your friends tell your neighbors that Camelot is Great. Oh and dog friendly.

Room Tip: There really isn't a bad room.
