“Great hotel!!”
Reviewed June 21, 2004

We stayed @ this hotel June 23rd-26th after Disney. It was clean, the staff was friendly & helpful and you can't beat the location. Glad that the positive reviews were accurate. The beach area is smaller than some, but the view is awesome! For a waterfront property the rate was very cheap.We saw dolphins from our balcony every day. The Italian restaurant across the street ("The Gondolier") has excellent food, reasonable prices and some of the best pizza I've ever had. You can walk to Pier 60 for the "sunset celebration" and the beach trolley goes right in front of the hotel. Our 4 year old loved the "Kids Club" activities. The hotel is clean, safe, centrally located, reasonably priced and family oriented - we would definitely stay there again.

Stayed at the Sea Wake 6/15-19. We thought it was wonderful. Clean and friendly. Beach was smaller than some, but still plenty of room and they have a nice deck and pool. We walked the beach and many of the hotels seem to cater to young partiers on Clearwater Beach. The BW was great for families. The oceanview rooms look over the intercoastal, then a thin strip of land, then more endless waters of the gulf. Beach rentals (parasailing, waverunners) available right next door. Water was beautiful and we saw dolphins swimming by every day. Didn't eat at the restaurant in the hotel, but ate at IHOP, the Italian place across the street, and Crabby Bills. They were all good. Walgreen's is conveniently across the street too. Would definately stay there again if we went to Clearwater.

We just returned from Clearwater Beach on June 13 after spending 2 nights at the Sea Wake. What a disappointment! The beach was awful, if you can call it a beach. It was not on the Gulf, it was on the intercoastal waterway. The beach shore was filled with oil from the boats. There was no way you could possibly swim in the water. The beach held maybe 6 chairs. The pool was the size of our back yard pool. We had to drive to the public beach on the Gulf to have a safe and fun swim. The room were nice and clean but was VERY warm. The staff was not friendly at all. They were probably tired of hearing all the complaints about their "so called beach". I would not recommend this resort to anyone, especially if you want to spend a nice day at the beach!

Just got back from Florida. We stayed here May 19 - 22, 2004. The hotel was great from the minute we drove up. Excellent ocean view room, with refrig, micro, balcony, safe, etc, etc. The room was immaculate! The pool was nice, as was the beach area. The beach area is small, but my wife loved that, no crowd AT ALL! The beach is on a intercoastal waterway, not the gulf, but still nice white sand and less waves for swimming. The restraunt was okay. Location is great also. Go to Pier 60 and watch sunsets and see the street performers! Also make sure you eat at Crabby Bills near the marina, and at Frenchy's!!! My only complaint was how smokers have no regard for non smokers...The hotel staff did their best to pick up cigarette butts from the beach area and the playground area, but to my suprise, the smokers still would just throw them anywhere...?! But you can't hold the hotel accountable for other peoples disregard!

We just returned from our trip to Clearwater Beach and a stay at the Sea Wake Beach. We stayed there based upon the reviews from tripadvisor, and we were not disappointed. The hotel is squeaky clean, our room was beatifully decorated and well-kept. The staff at the front desk was very helpful and courteous. The play area was great for our 2-year old, and other children seemed to love it as well. The only complaint we had was that the service at the hotel restaurant was horrible. We ate there once, and attempted it a second time, but after waiting 15 minutes for a (not busy) server to acknowledge us, we went two doors down and ate at the IHOP! The only other thing is, it's not really on the gulf, but on the intercoastal waterway. But the very nice public beach was a ten minute walk away, so that was no problem. We're definitely going back next year!
