June 2016 we stayed a week here at The Sea Captain resort. I'd done my research and this place was EXACTLY what we were looking for. The room was basic, clean and safe. The convenience to everything was of upmost importance and this place did not disappoint. We were able to walk everywhere. There is a marina on the property... More

It's a nice hotel next to the bay. Unfortunately, I was put in a room that smelled musty and terrible. I opened the windows to try and air it out which helped. Then, that night I got into the king size bed and I couldn't believe it… It was 2 twin beds pushed together with a king size sheet pulled... More

We have been going to the Sea Captain for years and recently it was bought out by the management of the bigger hotel behind it. The pool now closes with a deadbolt lock at 9pm, all guests are harassed about parking and strictly managed to 1 vehicle per room, no more continental breakfast served on holidays, rude employees working in...

Booked a stay at the Sea Captain for my anniversary and wife's birthday. Been several years since I stayed on Clearwater Beach. Had this hotel recommended to me by a friend. Had a nice King Efficiency room on the bay. This hotel is an old florida style hotel that is two story with only 28 rooms. I really enjoyed this... More

This resort was clean but outdated. The pool closes at 9 which really stinks when your on vacation. The reason I gave it 2 stars was the fact that at midnight when I was trying to go asleep there were people being extremely loud. They were out by the pool partying. I don't mind someone having a good time but... More

It is the perfect getaway. A very family friendly hotel located right on the marina! The staff and housekeeping is very welcoming and went out of their way to help my husband and i with anything and everything we needed. Great getaway for all ages, we will definitely be coming back :)

I just returned from a little mini vacation at the Sea Captain Resort. The rooms are a little out dated, but that's what gives this hotel it's charm. My fridge and stove stopped working the day after I checked in, I notified the front desk and they had maintenance to my room within the hour. The staff also came around... More

If you have stayed here many years like most of us it is time to move on. No more nice cups in the rooms. All of the staff have been replaced. No umbrellas at the pool. And no matter what the management replying to this review, still no heat in the pool. Really! Nice warm day and the pool is... More
