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.

This is our third time staying with Blue Wave Motel. We are seniors( in our late 80's) and almost everything is perfect for our stay. Starting with that we always stay on the first floor with no steps, walk to all our favorite resturants, which are just across the street, enjoy just sitting in front of our "little beach apartment''....
