Last July and August, I decided to take a three week Father and Son trip to Florida with my ten year old son. We decided to make Clearwater, Florida our home base as I am very familiar and knowledgeable about the area as my parents previously owned a home in St. Petersburg, Florida. During my many business trips in North America, I often stay at Super 8 Hotels and thus decided to stay for three weeks at the Super 8 Hotel located at 22950 US Highway 19 North, Clearwater, Florida.
The hotel management and employees were great, very friendly, always in attendance and willing to assist and make our stay comfortable. Each and every day of our stay, whenever we departed or arrived back at the hotel from our excursions or adventures, we were always greeted by Henry or the other staff members. They always went out of their way to welcome us and make our stay pleasant. Upon first arriving at the hotel to register, Henry was on duty at the front desk and assigned us a room with two double beds located next to the main office. Parking was right outside our hotel room door which made transporting items and purchases from the car to the hotel room very easy.
This Super 8 Hotel was an older and modest utilitarian hotel which provided 2 double beds, clean sheets, towels, functioning bath, shower, toilet and sink, television, chest of drawers, desk, chairs, telephone and free wireless high speed internet connection. This hotel met our basic requirements and needs and since it was located so close to the highway, we were able to venture out to theme parks, attractions, museums, dinner shows, malls, restaurants, beaches and theatres with dispatch. The hotel had a large outdoor swimming pool which was very clean and private. The hotel also had a washer and dryer which could be utilized for a nominal fee. The hotel room was clean and the chamber maid cleaned our room and washroom daily. The price of the hotel also included a free breakfast which consisted of coffee, juice, toast, porridge, cereal, milk etc. The breakfast area was off the main lobby and was very clean and always supervised by the front desk attendants.
This Super 8 Hotel is not a five star hotel like The Atlantis in the Bahamas, or The President Wilson Hotel in Geneva or The Plaza Hotel in New York. If you want a five star hotel then you should be prepared to pay the big bucks. This hotel is utilitarian, clean and modest and the price we paid reflected so. If you need a place to hang your hat for the night, a place which is clean, modest, has no bugs, provides free high speed wireless internet, a large clean pool and super friendly management and staff, then the Super 8 Hotel located on US Highway 19, North, Clearwater Florida, is for you.
My son and I are once again planning a summer adventure this July and August and thus, based on a great experience last year, we will once again stay at this same Super 8 Hotel.
