“Made to pay $10 to park”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2013

A good enough budget hotel for a night or two's stopover at lovely Clearwater Beach. It's within walking distance of Pier 60 and the Marina and the I-Hop attached guarantees a good breakfast. But unless you get a sea view then the view is rubbish (our view was of a car park and a road) and they charged me $10 to park my car in the hotel car park - after having already paid $129 for the room. I think this is a blatant rip off and should I visit Clearwater Beach again I will look for hotels with parking included. I have never heard of a hotel charging a guest extra to park the car and as I was a bit of a captivated audience it left a bitter taste.

Room Tip: Insist on a sea view - apparantly you can see dolphins early in the morning rather than tarmac like...

It's a small hotel right on the beach spent a week there in July 2012 after 2 weeks walking about Disney and universal with the kids it was the perfect place for my wife and I to relax. It gets a bit busy at the weekends as with the locals turning up on there boats as this is 1 of the only beaches that has a drinks licence but I was able to do a bit of fishing right on the beach and the sunsets were stunning I've booked to go back July 2014 can't wait

After having an issue with another hotel, we ended up here as a last minute stay (no reservation). The staff here has one answer to every request for help - Yes. Everyone that works in the hotel is friendly and genuinely happy to have you there. This has to come from the top. When a maintenance guy painting an elevator thanks you for staying, you know its a concern that all employees share.

The room was clean and quiet. That's about all you could ask for. The hotel is older but you don't get the feeling that its not taken care of at all.

Again, service is what makes what would be a 3 or 4 star hotel - a 5 star hotel and this place has it.

I have stayed at this hotel for 2 nights and had a great seafront room overlooking the swimming pool and out to sea. Very comfortable, clean with a lively bar and good IHOP restaurant out front. It is in a central location and great for walking or driving in the Clearwater beach or other off shore islands going South. Safe area and plenty to do and see in local area.

Fantastic hotel. Balconies in every room and great beds. Was able to be awoken by the sunrise each morning. The only complaint was that the elevator was entirely too small. The luggage rack was a pain to get in and out. It's tough traveling with all our work equipment plus our luggage. The ihop located inside was amazing,too.

We loved our stay at this hotel, The staff where so helpful and kind. The location is brilliant being right on the beach. The rooms where large and clean and had everything you wanted in them to enjoy your stay. I would definitely stay here again, as it is great value.

Maybe the halls are old and shabby but the rooms are clean with good beds. Remember it is on the beach and beautiful. The rates are reasonable for the average person. How often when an older hotel is torn down a condo or upscale hotel takes its place and the chance to stay on the beach is lost. Enjoy the beautiful beach and sunset. The staff is friendly and the rooms are fine.
