“RIP OFF !!!! DONT STAY HERE!!!!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2012 via mobile

We pulled in after a 15 hour drive only to find that the air conditioner did not work in the bed room. It was like a hot box. Also when we checked in I asked to confirm that we had a none smoking room. She said that they ask all the guest not to smoke in the rooms. And said if they smell smoke when cleaning that they spray something in the room. Then proceeded to tell us that sometimes the guest smoke in the room because if they smoked outside they would get arrested. My son could not get on the Wifi. When we asked why we were told that you had to step outside to get a signal  because when the building was built back in the 60's they did not anticipate wifi.  This was not what was advertised on the web site.  I told the lady at the front desk that we would like a refund. We were told that we would have to speak to the manager the next day to see if we could get our deposit back. We stopped by the next day only to be told to call the following day because the manger did not come in. We called the following day only to be put off again. At that point I told the person on the desk that I did not feel that we owed anything. She said there was a charge for canceling . I told her we did not cancel,they did not provide us with a functional room. I called my cc company to void the charge. DO NOT BOOK !!!

My wife and I have stayed here every year for the past eight and she was an annual visitor for several years before we met. The place is "old Florida" with pastel colors in the large rooms. Rooms and bathrooms are certainly not new but things are maintained. The best value is an efficiency room with a kitchen---not only do you save on restaurant meals if desired but there is more overall space and you have a separate bedroom and bathroom area. There is plenty of parking and guest spaces are reserved.
The best feature is the location in the heart of Clearwater Beach on Gulf Blvd. right across from the Gulf----you can walk to the beach and no parking fee! The is a large, inviting pool in the middle of the complex. The clientele runs to families and retirees so the atmosphere is usually quiet. It is not the least expensive place on Gulf Blvd. but it is clean and well run and the location is absolutely the best! There are a number of good restaurants within easy walking distance and the Publix grocery store is a mile or so away just off the causeway if you have an efficiency unit and want to cook for yourself.

Room Tip: A second floor room is quieter and one on the Gulf side provides a better view. There is a large con...

We had not pre-booked any accomodation and came across this motel very close to the beach. There's a nice pool in the centre of the complex and the rooms were clean and tidy. The ladies at reception were very helpful with guidance to bars and restaurants.
The beach is just over then road and parking was free. There's a great Italian restaurant just just down the road near the Adventure golf.

Room Tip: Go and have a look at the room first.

The Hi Seas scores in several ways: The location is smack-dab on the Clearwater Beach main drag, our room was a good size, well equipped and maintained, and the service was reasonably friendly. However, it's hard to believe that in this day and time there are still facilities that *do not* offer dedicated non-smoking rooms. The Hi Seas is one of those. The first room we looked at had a strong smoke smell, the second room was better but obviously had been previously smoked in and then cleaned. We stayed anyway because it was late. I'd come back to the Hi Seas again *only* once they catch up with the times and offer non-smoking rooms.

Motel is classic Florida, dated but charming, clean with courteous staff, short walk to beach, good pool area, pool water could be clearer. Prices quite a bit higher than chain motels, (AAA or AARP discount requires 3 days stay) Coped with water leaking from bathroom ceiling as guests upstairs flushed toilet. The problem was obviously chronic as the suspended ceiling braces were rusted. Above average vacation stress additive.

The staff at the Hi Seas (Valeria & Barb) could not have been any nicer. The rooms are very spacious and very clean. The pool area is fantastic. This was the sixth year that my wife and I stayed at the Hi Seas.
