I am not one to leave a negative review, but I felt like this was deserved. This was a one night stay, thankfully. I would NOT stay again. In the elevator, jokes about the "Tower of Terror" ride at Disney were made by my husband (partially due to the duct tape on the doors and rattling as it moved.) The... More

Although this isn't the prettiest hotel from the out side, it is clean, it is in an ideal location and worked well for my wife and 2 (older 18 /21) sons. The room was standard motel size with two generous doubles and we coped well for the 2 nights of our road trip. It's next door to the new Opal... More

Room 219...Oceanview. I would not recommend. Have stayed multiple times in the past. Clearly, management has changed since last visit. The rooms aren't clean. Weekend manager was very unpleasant to guests checking in & to elderly woman asking for trolley location. I was very disappointed in how things had evolved since our previous visit. Location is fantastic. Continental breakfast is... More

Hotel is perfect location to Clearwater beach, 4th floor views from room were amazing thanks to Kathy!! Within walking to everything needed. Try Frenchy's or Crabbys for food. Thanks again to Kathy for the amazing package deal to the aquarium. The stuffed animals and books were amazing for the kids!!

Dirty room, outdated, unfriendly staff, inattentive service, phone was broken, several light bulbs out in our room, unable to get anything fixed. The only nice thing was the pool. Location is perfect; walk across the street to the beach and several shops and restaurants all around which is probably why people continue to stay there. Other than that, I'd advise... More

Overall room was clean , quiet , and close to everything. Staff was friendly at check in and housekeeper was very nice. One negative, they should not advertise "Breakfest" as items was noting more than some snacks.

It was one of the cheaper hotels on the beach, but for a little bit more money ($25) I stayed at a MUCH better resort last year. I was impressed with the location, but I did not like the room itself. It had an overwhelming smell of cat pee, which was weird because we were told that no pets were... More

Clean rooms, great location, perfect get away for families!! The gentleman working the desk when we checked in at the evening was very friendly and helpful!!! Would recommend this to any one in the area. The only issue we had was the room has a very small kitchenette with no cleaning supplies.

We stayed in room 309 for the weekend. When I walked in I immediately smelled the odor of cat urine. You never forget that smell. The queen beds are very small. They are more of a full size bed. No room for two people. Me and my wife had to sleep in separate beds. We went out Saturday night and... More
