When i arrived at the resort, i was unsure at first of my decision. Traveling alone with my 2 daughters, i was not sure if i had picked the best place. It was sort of old and " motel" like. WOW, was i wrong. The place was perfect. The staff was amazing.....the room was so clean, immaculate. It was a... More

We're so glad that you found the Sea Captain Resort to be better than you expected! Although we are and older 'mom-n-pop' beach motel, the entire staff takes great pride in our cleanliness and customer service. Our goal is for each and every guest to feel at home and comfortable, and as part of our Sea Captain family. Thanks so... More

The staff was awesome, the rooms were plenty big enough for our family of 5.. Super comfortable bed, heated pool and hot tub were great. Centrally located for all the beachside activities. loved watching the pirate ship come right by us while we were in the pool.

My husband and I stayed for 2 nights this past weekend. I found the Sea Captain online and was pleasantly suprised! A lot of times places don`t look quite the same in person. I cannot say enough about the cleanliness of the room and the well kept grounds. Unfortunatly my husband started feeling sick on the way there. We decided... More

2011 was our 10th (at least) year staying at the Sea Captain. Love the friendliness/homy feeling you get when you arrive and stay. Would the Hilton, Sandpearl or new hotel houskeeping staff greet/hug you on a return visit? I think not. Can't wait for 2012.

We have stayed at the Sea Captain 2 times a year, for several years. The friendliness of the cleaning gals and all the staff is A+.

We stayed for three nights overlooking the bay in Clearwater. Darlene was most welcoming and her recommendations for supper (within walking distance) were perfect. The setting for the hotel is great. A new building behind the hotel is under construction but this did not diminish our enjoyment of the Sea Captain. The pool was meticulously maintained by Pepe. Our last... More

We had a great vacation at the Sea Captain. We especially liked the quaintness, the extremely clean rooms and the affordable price. The entire property is well-maintained and the staff is friendly and helpful. The beach and many restaurants are within a short walking distance (a small restaurant in the next block serves a decent $2.99 breakfast). The Sea Captain... More
