I will be coming to clearwater in April for a week with a friend her 8 yr old granddaughter and my 15 yr old daughter. We would like to be close to the beach and have atleast a gulfview hotel. We are on a very tight budget and need something cheap but still decent. Any recommendations or other areas very close to clearwater to stay and have a great vacation. We chose clearwater because of its awesome white sand beaches, but are open to areas close by as long as they are nice and within budget and along gulf side.
