“Good location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013

Flew down for an interview and stayed here for a night, in a good location and within walking distance of several restaurants and areas. The beach does end not far from the hotel with a big mound of rocks so you have to walk out to the sidewalk and down to get to the actual big public part of Clearwater beach, but it is a reasonable walk. Nice room and balconies, would recommend people stay here that are looking for a budget hotel. Nice pool and pool bar with cheap food and drinks.

We stayed here for four nights after a hectic 10 days in Orlando, Clearwater is stunningly beautiful and so lovely to relax and see the real Florida (I got very excited seeing the pelicans flying around and the dolphins swimming in the gulf), most definitely worth a visit. This hotel is at the tail end of Clearwater just before the bridge over to St Peter's beach, there is a small private beach in front. The pool although small was great and walking from the pool area straight onto the beach was fabulous. The room was large and clean, the hallway carpet a bit dated but so what! This meant I didn't feel as guilty when we inevitably traipsed sand on to it when we were going back to our room. Car parking was fine (remember there is a daily charge), we arrived on a Sunday and it was noisy and busy with a lot of boats pulled up on the beach, the next door bar didn't blast music too late into the night (about 11.00 ish I think). The day after was like a different place, lovely and quiet. We had a room advertised as partial gulf view, we were the second room back on the side overlooking the car park on the top floor and it was absolutely fine, we loved sitting out on the balcony and enjoyed the view. The sunsets here are stunning. There is a jolley trolley stop right outside the hotel and we used this to go further up into Clearwater to the great shops and choices of restaurant, and to Clearwater aquarium. A great place to eat is Gondoliers opposite the hotel they do a great breakfast and fabulous value dinners (the desert counter has to be seen to be believed - we counted 27 different options of cakes!). At reception there was always free coffee available, and the fridge and microwave in the room was very handy (there is a walgreens right opposite to buy bottled water, drinks, snacks etc). Opposite the hotel is a crazy golf which we enjoyed late one balmy evening. This hotel cost a fraction of those big ones further up the beach, it may not be as posh as those but we enjoyed our stay here, our first in a Quality Hotel and have no hesitation in recommending it to others.

Nothing Quality about this hotel. Slightly dated inside. Wasn't happy about their billing service. If you want to give your card over for drinks at bar, pool, beach etc. beware they automatically take $100 off your card. Our bill was $42 still waiting for the $58 to be credited back on my card... It's takes 'a few days'. Am more disappointed I wasn't told this is the norm when they swiped my card!!! Tell your guests first please! ... Also when I checked out on the bar bill we'd had 2 extra drinks added to the bill, the waitress pointed this out but did nothing to rectify it. AND I'd given her top tip. That's just plain rude....and to a point...fraudulent !!! So disappointed. The Aircons extremely loud in the evening too but at least it works I suppose. Will not stay here again, wish we'd booked into Shepherds next door.

Spacious rooms with view over the beach. Very nice and helpfull staff.

We visit The Quality Inn on Clearwater Beach every few years. The location is ideal for everything. Walking distance to wonderful gourmet & seafood, lunch and evening dining and entertainment, shopping, convenience stores, public beaches, amusements, a great marina and more. But what I like most is that you can enjoy a private beach with your own "local" tiki bar and pool for evenings with family, or a quiet romantic evening together. The Hotel staff are always superb and very accommodating. Rooms are not small, and the gulf views are really nice, especially at sunset. You can view the fishing and tour boat traffic throughout the day. When we arrive, we park the car, and don't get back in it until we're ready to leave. We love this place.

Room Tip: The little extra cost for a room with a view is well worth it.

My husband and I check in July 26 2013 for two nights. The first night air conditioning was not working. The night clerk was rude when trying to explain the problem about the air conditioning. The next day maintenance came right up and he took the cover off and the vent was filthy with months of dusk. A new alr conditioning was place due to not working. The manger, Michelle didn't think it was a big deal for someone with asthma and she lied that the vents are clean weekly. She showed no empathy; the whole time she had a smirk on her face. We dldnot ask her to do anything with our room charges. She gave us half off for one night. We just wanted her to be mindful of her future guests who could have serious respiratory problems.
