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.

This motel is great! It is very clean, and within walking distance of several restaurants & stores. The motel is spotless, and the room is spacious. There is a full bathtub in the bathroom. There is a free washer/dryer upstairs (but you have to buy your own soap, which is in the laundry room). There is a small pool in the front, and the rooms in the back of the hotel are right on the water. The staff was very nice and helpful. There is a 24-hour Walgreens right down the street, and you can walk to two of Frenchy's casual seafood-based restaurants. They also give you several coupons, which you can use at Frenchy's restaurants and gift shop. I would love to go back again next year if I am able to!

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!

Clean spacious room decorated in a bright Florida retro style. Our room had a kitchenette, complete with dishes, silverware and a full refrigerator. We had a patio right outside our room with a beautiful view of the Intercoastal waterway, where we sat at our patio table and watched the boats and paddle boarders while we enjoyed the sunset. This hotel is walking distance to everything: beach, restaurants, Pier 60, etc. We received coupons that we enjoyed using (free Rum Runner drink!) and especially enjoyed eating at the many Frenchy’s restaurants in the area. Leann and the entire staff were very warm and welcoming, always available to help or answer any questions that we had. Frenchy’s Oasis is by far the best value on Clearwater Beach!

Cutest retro motel in an excellent location and right on the inter coastal. Room was spotless, well decorated in mid century style and offered a kitchenette. Sliding doors directly to a private patio overlooking the beautiful inter coastal. Affordable, too! Would definitely stay here again!

I recently stayed at Frenchy's Oasis for the first time and it reminderdme of the classic Clearwater Beach motel's of the 50's, 60's and 70's. Clearwater Beach has become a cluster of monolith boxes with no character and exorbitant prices. It seems to me that Frenchy is running a one man crusade to try to preserve the charm that drew millions of families to Clearwater years ago. His motel is incredibly well kept and clean. It has beautiful views of the Intercostal and is within an incredibly short walk (right across the street) to many great restaurants. If you want a classic Clearwater Beach vacation at an affordable price then Frenchy's Oasis is the place to stay. I hope to be back there soon myself.

There was an air conditioning unit that was so loud that my bf couldn’t sleep and had to purchase ear plugs and for the cars revving their engine outside. Also people who threw things in the dumpster at 5am was annoying. Very loud. I thought it was ridiculous that if you wanted any type of housekeeping it was $20 a day. The person who I checked in with wasn’t very nice but when I checked out they were nice. This place was just odd overall. The coupons were very good that was a positive thing.

The Oasis is a great place. I'd rather not let other people know, though, because I want to be sure I can get a reservation! Clean and well-maintained. Lots of walkable restaurants, stores, and attractions so you wouldn't need a car. Very fun to sit on your patio and watch the fishing boats and the bay. We had a full refrigerator, two electric burners, and a microwave. The small pool was heated and the common lounge has 24-hour coffee at no added charge. You also get restaurant and business discount coupons when you check in. Most people we talked to were repeat customers. As were we.

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!

Purchased a weekend stay-cation for my in-laws. Loved their room. Great staff. Close to everything with a feeling of old Clearwater Beach. A must!
Didn't see any elevator but they do have rooms on first floor. Must have parking ticket on dash.
Frenchy's owns the fishing fleet next door that supplies their seafood to several of his restaurants.
