Our family thoroughly enjoyed staying at the Blue Wave Motel Suites. The motel is just a couple of blocks from the beach - an easy 2-3 minute walk. We parked our car and barely had to use it during our stay. Restaurants, shopping and entertainment is all within walking distance. The suite we stayed in was perfect for our family...

Dear Janette: We are glad you LOVED the Blue Wave Motel and gave us a FIVE STAR review. We are glad you let other guests know they do not need a car as we are in the Heart of Clearwater Beach. See you soon. Rodney and Gayle

We've stayed at a lot of places, but this place is unique. From the daily tips and friendly greeting from Rodney to the quick responses and help from Gayle, it's more like visiting friends than going away. The rooms are clean and comfortable, we prefer the "beachy suites" to the more elegant Tommy Bahama room because they're brighter (but sleep...

We had the pleasure of staying at the Blue Wave Motel Suites last month and it is a hidden secret. We booked from internet and were more than happy with our suite. We loved having Rodney and Galye on site daily. Rodney had great recommendations for eating, shopping, etc. The suite was clean, comfortable and had everything we needed for...

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...

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...

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!...

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 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...

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.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
All rooms were newly remodeled in 2015 with King Koil Mattresses and Sofabeds. All units are one bedroom suites with very high quality appointments like Granite counter tops in complete kitchen, wood cabinets, full size refrigerator with ice maker, 4 burner gas stove. Tile floor to ceiling in bathroom. Some suites have Intercoastal Waterway view. Tommy Bahama Suite features all Tommy Bahama Furniture, Murphy Bed and can sleep 6 guests. The Jungle Room features bunk beds, and Jungle Theme, great for famiies with kids and sleeps 6. Guests gather at our Roof Top Terrace for drinks and watch the sunset on the Gulf of Mexico with music. Our favorite gathering spot has view of the Gulf and Intercoastal waterway. Only 10 rooms at this cute Mom and Pop friendly resort all suite motel. Get twice the room, for half the price of the Hilton and Sandpearl Hotels across the street. Friendly service and help with all your vacation needs is why our Guests return, and never a charge for parking, playpens, beach chairs and maid service. ... more   less
