My teenage daughter & I stayed here on 08/12-8/14/11 & I am so glad we did. Excellent location. Not on the beach but a couple of blocks from the beach. Everything was within walking distance right in the hub of all the activities. And completely safe for my daughter & I to walk at night. We meet both Managers, Gail & Rodney & they are the friendliest people. They do everything they can to make your stay enjoyable. Also while we were there out of all their rooms but ours & one other were occupied by returning customers. Once you find this gem, you won't go anywhere else. The rooms were very clean & updated. They go beyond the call of customer service. I will never look for another place to stay while in Clearwater Beach area...this is like a little home away from home. The Motel also has an assortment of beach chairs, umbrellas, toys for building sand castles & the body board we left because we were flying home....Enjoy! Suggestions for your trip, hit the Publix Grocery store for food, they close at 9pm, before you get to beach area, I think they are on Island Way just about 1 mile before you get to the beach. Make a right. There is really only a CVS in the actual beach area.
If you eating out good places are Clear Sky restaurant & Crabby Bills, were they will take your photo & make a key chain memory for $6.00.
We didn't go on Pier 60, but opted for sitting on sand watching the most beautiful sunsets I have ever seen. We will be back! Wish I was there now!
