Frenchy's Oasis Motel, a retro boutique property, is the latest sensation in waterfront accommodations to hit Clearwater Beach. Winner of the 2010 Clearwater Beach Chamber Beautification Award, the Oasis has undergone a truly nostalgic renovation with attention to every detail that brings back the charm of an era long gone when Clearwater Beach was known for its retro boutique motels. Our hospitality and beach themes are also found in our very own restaurants which serve the freshest seafood on Clearwater Beach. Our Frenchy's "World Famous" Grouper Sandwiches can even be delivered right to the Oasis for lunch or dinner on your own private patio. We invite you to come and stay on the bay and experience a relaxing vacation with us.

Pros: Wonderful mid-century motif with modern conveniences, accommodating office staff, absurdly reasonable prices, within walking distance of most of what Clearwater Beach has to offer. Cons: None. I suppose I could complain about the shower head being a bit low, but that only speaks to the greatness of this property. I almost want to not type this review, because I fear the more people know about this place, the harder it will be for me to get a room in the future. But what's going on here is too much to ignore. Despite being an older structure, the guest rooms are spacious and functional with kitchenettes, full-sized refrigerators, large flat screen televisions, a comfortable chair for relaxation, and terrific beds. Coming back was always a pleasure, whether I was in and out quickly or turning in for the night. Leann (the property manager) worked with me through various changes to my travel plans and easily accommodated future ones. It's easy to tell she's proud of the property, and rightfully so. In fact, I switched reservations from another area property for two upcoming visits- not because it disappointed me, but because staying here made much more sense, in part due to the price paid for what's offered. The only caveat is the upcharge for housekeeping ($20/daily seemed a little excessive) but I was happy making my own bed in exchange for what might be the best lodging deal in Clearwater. Within walking distance of the marina, beach, and countless restaurants and shops, I was glad to be able to leave my car parked and get around on foot. Being able to walk to Pier 60 to enjoy the setting sun was so much easier than driving around the island and desperately searching for a parking space that didn't require falling into debt. Absolutely my kind of clean, comfortable, and enjoyable place, I can't wait to return.

From the moment we arrived to the moment we left we felt like valued guests. We arrived after two weeks of Disney hospitality, and found our welcome on par, which is a huge complement to the staff at Frenchy's Oasis. Our room was big, spotless and exceptionally comfortable. From our front door we were a few feet from the pool and the back was straight on to a boardwalk. The thing that really stood out was all the 'little' extras. A lounge with coffee available 24/7, a DVD library, beach essentials (umbrella and chairs) and of course towels for the pool or beach. These are a few that stand out to me, there were many more. We stayed for three nights and enjoyed every minute.

Perfect place to kick back and relax - staff there are like family and can’t do enough to make your stay welcoming! - they are a true credit to the business. We have been visiting this Motel for over a decade and it never fails - a true home from home. We are always surprised to how clean and tidy the place is - it’s as if they repaint paint everything every night ready for the next day. If you are keen on sunsets, wild dolphins and a chilled atmosphere (near the beach, restaurants and harbour) give this motel a shot! Leanne and Ashley are fab 😊

We had so much fun at this place. After spending long, sunny, hot days at the beach and all else Clearwater has to offer, this is the perfect spot to retreat. The pool is clean and well maintained. Room 16 has a great view of the bay and marina. The best restaurants (and everything else) is in walking distance. The staff was very helpful and accommodating of our stay. You won’t regret making this your getaway oasis!

Fantastic little gem of a motel in Clearwater. Large clean rooms, lovely pool, funky decoration and lovely people, what’s not to love. We had a great couple of nights and would highly recommend. Chatting to other guests many of whom were repeat customers - seems to be a winning formula.

Fantastic location on the Bay, short walk to the Beach, clean rooms, grounds and amenities. This was our 2nd stay at Frenchy’s, this one for our 36th anniversary and we will definitely be back. All guests receive a 10% discount at their Gift Shop, Frenchy’s Off the Hook, and you are within walking distance of 4 of their great Seafood Restaurants. Nothing better than watching the sunrise over the Bay from your balcony and catching the gorgeous sunset on the beach at Frenchy’s Rockaway location!

Girls trip consisting of my mother, sister & 21 year old niece. The location is centrally located near many restaurants and shops, however, when sitting on the patio, it’s extremely peaceful. The view is breathtaking. We booked two 1st floor rooms and were able to walk to each other’s patio. The rooms were clean and decorated in retro decor. Small kitchenette with plates, silverware, etc. and a full sized refrigerator. This was a 2nd trip to Frenchy’s Oasis and will not be our last!

Great little motel. A slightly retro look but totally upgraded. Everything was very clean and new. Pool was very clean with good seating areas. We sat on our balcony at night with a little wine and cheese watching the lights of Clearwater and Dunedin. Then in the morning we picked up coffee in their hospitality room and sat on the back deck. We watched dolphins feeding and one manatee in the bay each morning. The motel is walking distance to everything (restaurants and the beach). I would highly recommend it!!!!

We love Frenchy’s…it is clean, well maintained, and homey. We love the kitchenettes and the location. It is a great value. We are able to book two rooms for the price of one at other hotels so that our teenagers have their own space. We already have our spring break booked for next year!

We only stay at frenchys when we travel to Clearwater, Leanne & Ashley are lovely, our room is spotlessly clean, beds are comfortable & the pool area is always clean & tidy, the sunsets are gorgeous from the pool side & the harbour views from our private patio are stunning with sightings of dolphins & otters. See you again in July
