DreamView Beachfront Hotel & Resort
Ranked #18 of 98 Hotels in Clearwater
Reviewed March 31, 2013

My husband & I decided to go on a "staycation" while our kids were away on Spring Break. The Wyndham Gardens was very comfortable and in a convenient location on Clearwater Beach. The room was very clean and nice. I loved the plantation shutters & wood floors. They added a nice touch to an otherwise stuffy hotel room. And although we did not have a balcony, the view of the gulf was still very calming & relaxing. The fitness room only had a treadmill and an elliptical so that was disappointing. There weren't even any free weights so they shouldn't have even advertised that they had a "gym". Thankfully, we brought our own bikes to ride. The Starbucks would have been great had they had nonfat milk. We were there for 3 days and all they had was whole milk. Many of the guests I spoke to wanted skinny coffees so you would have thought they would have run to the store to get the right milk, but they didn't. A hotel guest actual finally went to the store and brought her own. That's sad! Outside of those 2 small issues, the hotel was very nice. The staff was pleasant & accommodating. We will definitely stay here again!

Room Tip: Ask for a gulf view. It's definitely worth it!

Really enjoyed this place! Quiet, off the main tourist area, but close enough to it. Best of both worlds:) A little dated, but old-school Florida charming. Staff was very pleasant. Rob in the restaurant was awesome! Really went out of his way to make sure we had all we wanted. Saw dolphins right from the beach!

We liked the private beach and chairs/umbrellas. Desk staff would not give me my Wyndham rewards points because I forgot to mention at check in. Corner room view is same as all other water front rooms except a small window (balcony is same). Had a smoker beside us with smoke odor pouring under the adjoining room door, we were not offered a discount or even a free cup of coffee for all the things that were wrong. Starbucks in lobby would not accept starbucks app for payment and would not give reward points. Hopefully we can have a do-over at the Sand Pearl in October.

Thank you for the comments regarding the beach. Corner rooms have 2 different views and if you stay with us in the future I will be happy to show you the alternate corner room view. In regards to your points, we are not able to add them after the fact, however you are able to contact Wyndham and they will confirm your stay and add rewards afterwards. Please contact me directly to further discuss your concerns and allow me an opportunity to win you back before staying at another hotel.FYI the hotel is a non smoking Hotel and we charge a fee for smoking in the hotel.

This is clearly an older building and some things have been upgraded better than others.
The rooms are very nice. The floors are something resembling hardwood floors and it works well with the beach decor.
Not so good are the very slow, old elevators and the ceilings and nasty vents in the hallways.
The private beach is nice, but it's limited because you don't have access to next door properties so you can't walk down the beach.
The staff is friendly and helpful.

Do not spend the extra money for a corner room, the window is behind the couch and you'll never even look out of it. The "corner" room balcony is blocked on the corner, so the view is no different from other rooms. Our room was adjoining another, and the joining door is very thin, as we could hear everything and we had to stuff towels under the door to keep the smell of smoke out (from a nonsmoking room). We considered leaving early, but were told we would be charged a full night's stay if we left early, so we just stayed. We really loved the private beach, as there are very few kids at this hotel, but know ahead of time, you cant walk on the beach without going about 0.4 miles down the street then cut over to the beach. We did have some dolphins playing right beside us. They did not charge extra for the beach chairs as someone here mentioned before. The only coffee is the one cup deal in the room, and if you want Starbucks in the lobby, they charge $5 per cup and $5 a pot (4 small cups) in the room plus $3 delivery fee plus tip. Be prepared to be broke. Also, if you fly in, just take a taxi, we hardly used our rental car at all. I have lots of restaurant reviews here and on YELP.
