The location of the hotel is excellent. We were disappointed to find that there was work being done on the hotel during our stay. We came to relax by the pool and beach; which was difficult when there were drilling and jack hammers being used during that time. There was also a terrible glue smell on the balcony; which prevented us from sitting out on the balcony. The air conditioner unit was also too loud to make it relaxing. The business center? was a computer in the lobby with a printer, which seemed to be occupied for long period of times by guests. The fitness center was being painted and was not able to be used during our stay. The breakfast was not good-coffee was cold and food was so-so. We had eaten at Shepperd's the day before and their breakfast was excellent. The servers were very nice and tried to be accomodating.
Considering the rate we paid, it would of been nice to know prior to booking the room that there was going to be work being done by the pool and beach while we were there.

The hotel,while under and operated by the same owner now does so under a 'Wyndham' licence and this has resulted in a major refurbishment (a little sadly still underway).
We had a beachfront double queen which was spacious and tastefully well furnished,although we would have like a microwave,but I guess as they have full service restaurant facilities there was never a chance of one. The beds are very comfortable with 14" deep mattresses.Great.
The view over the private white sanded beach(albeit small) was great to wake up to as was watching Dolphins go by and Egrets fishing. If you want a large beach then you are just a short walk from the main Clearwater beach.Like the rest of the onside of this hotel,the guest rooms are kept spotlessly clean.

The hotel provides sunbeds with 4" foam mattresses which make these a pleasure to relax on.I would have liked to see some better beach management as it must be their prize asset.Sadly the beach attendants do not take the mattreses in at night,so if it rains they get soaked through. The beach is raked regularly,but not around and between the sunbeds and as people litter you will find cigarette ends and plastic bottles even in the morning. Beach staff should clear up before guests start their day. It is not terrible,but when we revisit,and we will we hope it will improve.

All in all a good hotel which would have scored 5 stars if not for the beach management letting it down ga little.
Oh yes and over our 9 days we did get some noise from the continuing refurbishment,but it did not spoil our enjoyment.You just should be aware although there cannot be much more work to do.
Enjoy.

We traveled to Clearwater to attend the Presidental Convention. Kentucky was given Wyndham Garden. We were a little far away from the Tampa Convention Center but no fault of the Wyndham. The staff worked very very long hard hours to make our stay wonderful. Great job guys.

Room Tip: Everything was wonderful- Great view of the water

One of the few hotels with a private beach, however, we would never stay again. On a 3-day trip, expect to spend an extra $185 for "hidden" resort and transportation fees. Hotel boasts a "shuttle" on the website - which actually means they will call you a cab. You are forced to pay a daily $15 resort fee and if you'd like to lie on a chair on the beach, you need to pay $20 per day. Drinks at the hotel bar run $10-14 each - we did not buy one drink at the bar. Other hotel bars/restaurants had drinks for under $5. After we complained the staff upgraded our room, but we still felt short changed. We selected this hotel due to the private beach (not knowing you pay $35/day for this amentiy) and a shuttle to/from the airport and local attractions. There was also a wedding that was very loud on Saturday. We simply called the front desk to inquire about when it would be over since we had an early flight - the response was "we have no idea" - no apology or anything. Only positive was super comfy pillows! Save your money and book elsewhere!!
