Was in a pinch and needed to stay on Clearwater Beach. Booked a room for two nights last minute and was very reasonably priced. They upgraded for free (being out of season helps) and the room even has a view of the beach. Great location, friendly staff, big clean room, comfy bed and even includes an oven and full size...

The Island Cay was excellent. I stayed there for 11 weeks with a summer trip and they accommodated us so well. They truly care about your happiness with their services.

Stayed there for 2 months and it was wonderful. The staff were extremely kind and they're super flexible. In addition, it's an amazing place. The rooms were beautiful and clean. More importantly, they have AC! Love this place. I would definitely come here again and recommend it to friends, family, and others.

If you are looking for the hotel, I am definitely recommend this hotel. Not to far for walking to the beach. The room is very nice and also has a small kitchen. All staff members are very nice. They keep the area clean (that is the most important thing for me). Check out this place you won't disappoint it.
