Budget Friendly Hotels with atleast Gulfview in Clearwater

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.

April is still the high season, so anything that has a view will not be budget. The most reasonably priced units will be the smaller mom and pop motels - there are a number with good reviews within a few blocks of the beach.

For hotels close to the beach with a view, Travelodge, Manussons and Westmont Inn (the name has been changed, but many reviews will be under the Ritz) are all across the street from the beach, and right in the middle of the tourist section and will be the most reasonably priced beach view rooms.

If you don't mind being on a quieter stretch of beach, the Palm Pavilion is beachfront on North Beach. It is an older hotel and kept immaculately clean. This is my favorite budget hotel, but it is about a 10 minute walk to the Pier. The rooms are small and there are no elevators. The restaurant has a large beachfront patio with excellent views, and there are good Gulf views from the upper rooms. They also have a rooftop viewing deck, pool, free parking, free beach towels, wifi, great beds, and cabana rentals. For the price - this hotel can't be beat.

If you want to check out other small lodgings, there are a number listed on the Clearwater Beach Chambers website. Most will be several blocks from the beach, but the prices will be reasonable. www.beachchamber.com/m/where_to_stay.html

For small hotels, check out FloridaSSL.com - it's a great tool for the more hard to find hotels.
