“Slightly older, but rooms work well”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013

Hotel feels a little older, but the lobby and rooms are updated and are comfortable, especially the suits. Walk-on access to the beach was very nice and plenty of amenities to make you comfortable, like chairs and beach-side bar and grill.

The hotel needs to back off on some of their security. I expect security to operate in the background, and not be the focal point of my vacation. If you want to be a Resort Hotel, then you need to treat your guest like guests and not like criminals.

as the heading says ,great beachfront location ,all shops and restaurants within walking distance , kids club , ect ect ... the level of customer service shows through from the minute you arrive to the time you check out , the staff aswell as the management are happy to engage you and make sure you are having a good day .. its also good to see that the property has upped its security level on the basis of making sure that just the paying guests get into the relevant areas of the hotel ..ie the pools / lobby /beach and stop people off the street gate crashing ... this may not be the newest hotel on clearwater beach nor the best star rated ... but this property more than makes up for that in so many ways ,and you need to stay here to experience it ..you will not find more pleasant ,helpful, set of staff that make your stay so enjoyable who all work hard to keep the hotel at its best at all times

Room Tip: if possible check into a southside view room , where you can see the ocean

My wife, two girls (10 and 11) stayed July 6-12. Overall the location is fantastic, beach is clean and lots of fun for the kids. The rooms could be a bit larger but who stays in their room other than to sleep. I have to say the service was great. The last night my oldest daughter got stung by a jellyfish. The staff was great with her and later that evening brought up some sea-salt for her to bath in. They even called me the next day when we had already returned to Dallas. Outstanding customer service in my eyes. Drinks and food were expensive but most vacation destinations on the beach are. We will go back for sure!!

The staff were always smiling, very pleasant and offered great service. Someone was available every time we needed or wanted something. Kathy was fun doing kid's crafts, and Nick Kuhns made our stay especially enjoyable. Dinner at the Reflections was delicious; Rochelle was a very personable server. Our room was clean and very comfortable and housekeepers were prompt.
Our view from the 4th floor offered a nice view of the Pier and part of the beach, the pools and the skyline over the bay.

Our son had a baseball tournament nearby so we decided to spend a little more and stay on the beach, however we had no idea we were going to be nickeled and dimed for everything. The rooms were average, the food was bland and cold, if you wanted to lay on a chair on the beach there was a fee. The pools area was extremely small for the amount of rooms at the hotel, hopefully you can get a room with an a/c that operates, of the group of ten rooms our team rented 4 had to be changed due to a/c issue's.
Overall nice area but very average and at time below average hotel. I been a Hilton Honors member for over 5 years and have seen the brand diminish over time, I travel 5 to 6 times a month and have always the chain but this last trip has finally convinced me to seek another chain.
