This may not be the nicest hotel but the staff is great and it has a great location. Multiple places to eat within close vicinity. Right on the beach and very clean. It was easy to wake up and go to the beach then come back to get comfortable.

My husband and I had the absolute pleasure of staying here! I have nothing negative to say. This place is simple and bit on the older side...this place is very clean! The staff here is FANTASTIC! You are right on the strip (boardwalk, just a few short blocks from the pier). We will go back! By the way... Kathy is...

This is a 1960s hotel that they are trying to keep reasonably updated. The location is great. Right across from the beach and next to Opal Sands. It is fine for the money spent, but the decor is no particular style 1980s and uncoordinated. The doors entering the rooms don't fit well into the archway. Stair railings are rusted. I...

First off, the location is pretty good. We did not have a sea-facing room, but it's within walking distance to the beach and great places to eat right outside (Check out the Postoffice next doors!). That being said, parking is not included and super strict! The rooms are quaint for sure, but weirdly connected to each other through only a...

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 The stuff was a little outdated but it was perfect for me i didn't want anything expensive.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,...

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.

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...
