This place is so great. Super clean rooms. Rodney and Gayle are the best hosts ever. Every place they told us to go to was perfect. They provide beach towels, chairs, coolers, and probably anything you ask for because they are so accommodating. The beach was really close. No exaggeration with it being a 3 min walk. But the location... More

We stayed in the Tommy Bahama suite in early January. While it is not super fancy, or high-end, it was comfortable (even the hide-a-bed!) and a great value! I can't say enough good about it. Rodney and Gayle went above and beyond to make certain we had a great vacation! Rodney was full of great suggestions and guidance, especially to... More

We stayed here in November with our kids in the Tommy Bahama room. Gail was very helpful in making sure we had enough room for us and our teenagers. We arrived Thanksgiving evening and spent 4 nights. The room was beautiful! We were comfortable and we're able to cook in our kitchen that had all amenities. Rodney was the best!... More

Please read my full review under 4QQQs. TripAdvisor messed up my info. This place is fantabulous!!! Rodney and Gayle made our trip more enjoyable with the personalized service they provide. It wouldn't be the same without them.

We just returned from staying here for 5 days. What a great time we had. This hotel is in the best location. Close to the beach and close to a lot of restaurants and close to the strip. What we liked to most was the personalized service from Rodney and Gayle!! They are outstanding. I was hesitant booking a hotel... More

We just returned from 5 days in Clearwater Beach. We stayed in the Jungle suite at Blue Wave Suites. This is a "mom and pop" type of establishment. It's not five-star by far, but it had a lot of advantages. Probably the biggest asset of Blue Wave Suites are the people who run the place: Gayle and Rodney. They are... More

This was our first visit to Clearwater Beach as a family and decided to add a couple days to our trip at the last minute. I found Blue Wave Motel on Trip Advisor and took a chance. The reviews were true. Very friendly staff, clean and quaint, great location. Nothing fancy but we didn't expect that. Rodney was a great... More

We stayed for 12 nights and Rodney and Gayle were so nice and helpful and friendly. Central and safe. The apartment was clean and well equipped and the beds comfortable. I used a bike almost everyday to cycle to the North Beach to walk. Will stay again - great value.

Rodney was great treating us like long time friends. He gave tips on where to eat and what was the special on that particular day, The location was just perfect within walking distance of all resturaunts and attractions. Free parking and full kitchen was also a bonus. Will return for sure when I visit Clearwater again.

Essential factors: clean and safe? Yes. Important factors: good value, good location, spacious? Yes - all great, actually. Other factors: free parking is a huge benefit along with super good service and cooking your own food every once in a while.
