We recently got back from our 6day/5night stay in Clearwater Beach and we are already counting down the days utill we can go back. We stayed in a gulfview two room queen suite and it was perfect. Traveling with two young kids (3&5) we were looking for a room where we could put the kids to bed and still enjoy some kid free time grownup time and this was perfect. The suite was two separate rooms connected by a door. We set the kids up on the pull out couch in the "living-room/kitchen" which allowed us to put them to bed and still enjoy some time on the balcony listening to the live music which was playing each night downstairs. From our balcony we had a beautiful view of the pool/bar and the gulf. We were able to see dolphins swimming by our hotel room several times. The gulf-view was definitely worth the extra money, the cityview rooms over looked the street which was not horrible but with the kids we knew we would be in the room more then often then others and we wanted to be able to hear the music at the bar.
We had an early flight in and a late flight out we were able to check in early (noonish) and check out late (1:00) which was super helpful. We ate at Jimmy's several times and the food and service were good we really liked the kids eat free option. The hotel is not on the beach but it is short walk down the road. The walk takes no time at all and is completely do-able for older kids and adults. However, it would have been too much for our youngest (and probably the older one too), I knew this before and brought a collapsible wagon for the girls and all their stuff, which worked out perfectly (several people everyday asked us where we got it). Everyone at the hotel was very friendly and helpful. We will be back again!
