The room smells bad. There is no room service.No one answered the phone when we needed house keeping help. The host was unfriendly. The Wifi was too slow. There were bugs and mosquitos.the room wasn't well cleaned during the day.

No frills but just what we needed and at a great rate! Private beach, private pool and hot tub, small kitchenettes in each room, balconies (only some with a view), perfect view from the beach, awesome location right on Clearwater beach with lots of fun activities, good bars, and restaurants in walking distance. We'll be back! Note: The new building... More

This was the worst place I have ever stayed. The room smelled like a dirty wet dog. The elevator was so small it could only hold 4 people and it was the only elevator in the place. I'm not sure how that passed code on a 5 story building. The pool was the size of a large hot tub. There... More

The good: probably the cheapest room you're going to get anywhere near the water in Clearwater. Friendly staff. I felt the inside of the room was a tad nicer than expected, was clean with decent beds, bedding & updated tv with free wifi & free coffee in the lobby. Also has a fridge with small stove FYI. The bad: hotels... More

I will start by saying we did have a nice view from our room. It goes downhill from there. This place is a dump! The hallways and stairwells smell like cat pee and our room could not have been dusted for weeks. I have travelled a lot and am not one who normally worries about bedbugs, bedspreads, etc. but this... More

A beachfront hotel that is in need of some improvements. The front desk staff were very knowledgeable about things to do. It has a small pool and hot tub, but we were there for the beach anyway. It's next door to Shepards Resort which was great as we walked next door to enjoy the evening. Would stay here again if... More

You get what you pay for. Older hotel, that needs some renovating to keep up with the other hotels. Make sure you ask for view of beach, the other side is a view of the new hotel being built. It has a small pool and small beach. More effort needs to be focused on cleaning the pool, beach and hot... More

When we arrived during the evening the person waiting on us got us a room with a great view. We really enjoyed our stay there. Everyone there was helpful and knowledgeable of the area. It was just the right size for us. It was awesome that we could see Dolphins while we were swimming in pool and the kids also... More

Not the best place on the beach, but it is on the beach, had a small pool & outdoor spa, very small beach, but it is what I paid for and expected. Faced Shepard's resort next door and yes it has music every night and loud music, but once the patio doors were shut and air was on, very minimum... More
