I can think of a few good ones, but not for that price per night in the peak winter season.
So. I'll sit this one out for others as I don't know any that cheap on the beach that time of year.
www.barefootbayresort.com is on Clearwater Beach. It's not directly on the beach, but just a few minute walk to the main beach, and Pier 60. Also, walk to restaurants, bars, shops, the marina and activities.
Going to be tough getting directly on a beach for $150.
Some more smaller hotels listed here clearwater-beach-hotels.beachdirectory.com/
Some things in the area...
I didn't realize that this was peak season - may have to take lodging inland and drive to the beach - thanks for the info and especially thanks for the things to do tagalongs
