“Super location, comfortable stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2013

Recently returned from a 3 night stay with a friend at this hotel. It is center to everything in Clearwater Beach. It sits on the marina and we loved sitting on the pier in the evening and watching the booze cruise boats come in and out. We even saw fireworks one night from the Clearwater jazz fest. The pool was warm and clean. The rooms were clean and spacious with a mini fridge and microwave as well as a mini stove and whatever utensils we needed. We used the bicycles one day to ride over the bridge to Shell Key and would highly recommend this. While it was hot with the sun shining, we arrived at the key early and found many shells and a warm ocean where dolphins played. Beautiful! Ocean is across the street as is Pier 60. Can't get better than that! Had breakfast on Sunday morning which included fresh fruit, bagels, coffee and muffins. We parked our car on arrival and did not move it the rest of our stay. Staff is friendly and helpful. I am bad with names, but the female staff member who was raised in this area was super friendly and great with helping us. Definitely would stay here again over any hotel in the area.

I am so very glad you enjoyed your stay. We have begun to dip a little bit in temperature here, but nothing compared to what you are experiencing in NC. I hope to see you again on your next trip to Florida and from our staff to your home, Happy Holidays!!

the motel was clean, well kept, comfortable beds, and the staff was so helpful. Especially with directions to special places I was wanting to go. The location of the motel is the best because I could walk to the things I wanted to see without trying to find a place to park.I will definitely stay there again !!

Room Tip: I had a first floor , no stairs to have to take suitcases up !

If you're looking for lodging near Pier 60 beach, this is definitely a resort to consider. Short walk to beach, located next to all marina-based activities. Rooms aren't fancy but who goes to CB to stay in a room? Staff is super friendly. Will definitely return to the Sea Captain.

Room Tip: We stayed in Room 10, it has a walk-out right to patio area next to marina. We were able to sit rig...

We just returned from 4 nights at this property, Rooms are extra clean and maintained, This has got to be one of the top places for friendly helpful staff. The rooms are not fancy or luxurious but they are more than adequate for a family. Had plenty of supplies and did not make you feel like they were counting pennies when trying to meet the needs of guests. Every staff member talks to you and ask how they can help you. The staff was constantly cleaning, The man that worked outside cleaned every single chair and table on the grounds daily. Every floor was vacuumed and swept.This was outside not counting how hard the housekeeping staff worked on the inside as well. Location is wonderful we parked the car and never moved it. Beach is right across the street. Lots of restaurants close enough to walk to. Pier 60 is across the street. Crabby Bills is 2 min walk. This property is a pleasure to visit. When returning to Clearwater I will never stay any where else. Other guest told us they have stayed there every year for 17 years. Now that says alot about a place.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 21. Try to get rooms that doors open on to the pool deck on first floor.

Had a wonderful relaxing 3 night stay here last August. Situated in a perfect spot between the marina and beach and a short walk to the pier, staff are friendly and helpful. Would highly recommend for a break in Clearwater.

Found this place on trip advisor and so glad went with the recommendations. Lovely friendly accommodation in such a great position for the beach and restaurants. We have the double aspec room with fab views of the bay. The room was really comfortable with everything you need and a bit more. Very quaint and more personal than the average hilton etc. pool area great with loads of sunbeds. Free parking use of bicycles and wi fi a real bonus. Highly recommended
