The staff was very friendly and helpful! We had room 119 which was on the first floor right across from the beach. The stuff was a little outdated but it was perfect for me i didn't want anything expensive. If you want to get a good nights sleep I don't recommend it was very noisy due to the location. We...

Our room was very large and spacious for my family, with 3 kids. Beds are comfortable and shower is great. Right across from the beach and only minutes walk to great restaurants. Our first time in Clearwater will always be memorable because of the amazing customer service from Laura, at the front desk. She's super sweet, friendly and made us...

I would not recommend this hotel. We had room 315 and it was scary. There were interior doors that comnected to rooms on each side with locks that were less than secure. Thd hotel is dated. The bathroom walls were molded, the vents had dirt marks around them from where dirty air had been blowing. Breakfast is yogurt, gross juice,...

Room was great, very large and had the best view ever. Balcony had unobstructed view of the Gulf. Nice quiet and very safe setting. Friendly staff especially Kathy at the front desk - very helpful - made it a memorable stay.

I arrived early and the front desk staff was perfection. Two ladies greeted me and they were so friendly and accommodating. They were able to get me in a room right away with a balcony overlooking the gulf. The room was very clean, spacious, and the view was so lovely. The bed was also very comfortable. I only stayed one...

The room was large and the beds were comfortable; however, it was not the most desirable room. The sink barely worked, although the water pressure in the shower was great. The elevator smelled terrible. The free breakfast is sparse at best, and the Wi-Fi was not working, when I was there. The location was super. You are surrounded by pubs...

We stayed one night and we really spent a good time. The beach is cross the street, there's an excellent restaurante in the left. Rooms are spacious, with air conditioner. The pool is good, water was clean and our kids had a lot fun! The continental breakfast is good with yougurt, orange juice, muffins. I miss bagels (hot bread), but...

During our 2 week holiday in Orlando, my partner and I went to Clearwater for the day. Whilst there, we decided to find a room so we could enjoy the white beaches the following day as well. This hotel was very reasonably priced and the location is on the beach. We had a very big room and the staff were...

The location is GREAT right across the street from the beach. The staff was really sweet. (she made sure I had a beach view as I requested) We got there very early and asked if we can leave our car in the parking lot so we can go to the beach and without hesitation she gave us a parking pass!...
