About 2 years ago my husband and I were looking for somewhere new to stay close to the Gulf since we had always been visitors to the east beaches and knew bascially nothing about Clearwater. I found his place online just by doing a search on small lodging in the area and we were pleasantly surprised with the overall experience.... More

This is a great little "mom and pop" hotel. We have stayed at several other small hotels in the Clearwater Beach area this is by far heads above the rest. Great little fishing dock, clean pool, super clean and comfortable rooms. Located in a very quiet area of town you you dont hear the sirens and comotion all night but... More

The owner is dishonest. False advertisement. The room was dirty. When we got there, we find out that, the room we're going to check in to was the room he lived in. We asked about dock space when we called. When we arrived, we find out that there is no dock space. I'm now finding myself fighting credit Card charges,... More

We were looking for a nice motel within walking distance to Clearwater Beach and were not looking to get caught up with the Spring Break crowd. We found this one and were not disappointed (especially when some kids were asked to leave after making too much noise). The owner, Robert, was kind and gave us all the information we needed...

I'm a Central Florida Native and have been coming to Clearwater since i was a small child. Now that I'm an adult with a family, I still loving coming here. I kinda ended up at this hotel by accident. My family had camping plans in Gainsville along with 2 other couples. The river flooded this weekend so camping was canceled.... More

First of all, we were lied to by the owner. We were told we we would booked into the large end room. That didnt happen. It turns out that the owner told the same thing to a couple that was there the same week. Our room: Wow, and I don't mean that in a good way. Horribly uncomfortable! The King... More

I stayed at Castaways for four nights in a two-bed apartment with my friend. Castaways is a small, family-owned motel located on the bay a short walk away from Pier 60 and Clearwater Beach. The manager of the hotel was very nice, helpful and very accommodating and we simply couldn't beat the low rates anywhere. The room was very clean... More

Our stay in Feb 07 We really wanted the Sand Dollar motel, where we already had spent three vacations. Unfortunately, we found out that all known small motels, have been replaced by huge yuppie buildings. Horrible. Between those buildings there is the "Castaways". Its a lovely little motel with appartments we like. It was clean and comfortable. Bedroom, Bathroom, kitchen... More
