“Best location & rates on Clearwater Beach, FL”
Reviewed August 18, 2011

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!

My family just returned from a two night stay at the Blue Wave Motel in Clearwater. We had wanted to stay in a place close to Pier 60 since our daughter was playing in a volleyball tournament near that location. After spending a couple of hours checking out (very high) prices at places like the Hyatt and Hilton, we happened upon the site for the Blue Wave. My family had never stayed at a "Mom and Pop" type of establishment before so we were putting our trust in the pictures and description shown online.
Upon our arrival at the Blue Wave, we met a gentleman named Rodney. He was a very friendly guy who immediately made us feel welcomed. He showed us a couple of different "family rooms" that included a small kitchen with full size appliances and a small table with 4 chairs, and a granite countertop. The living area had a pull-out sofa, chair with ottoman and a decent sized t.v. The bathroom was nicely decorated and the bedroom had a queen size bed. The entire room seemed to have been nicely renovated. The bottom line...we were very please with the room and its terrific location (we could walk to Pier 60 easily). The only small issue was the AC unit was located in the bedroom (which made sleeping great), since it didn't cool the remainder of the unit as much as it cooled the bedroom. This was NOT a big deal since the other rooms seemed to get enough air to stay at a comfortable temperature and the living area had a ceiling fan.
I would high recommend a "family room" at the Blue Wave to any small family looking for a clean, comfortable place, at a very reasonable price, that is close to Pier 60 and beautiful Clearwater Beach. They even have beach chairs, toys, etc. for guests to use at the beach free of charge.The fact that Rodney was there to make sure we had everything we needed and even asked how the volleyball tournament was going made our stay even more enjoyable.....thanks Rodney! We will definitely be back the next time we plan a trip to Clearwater Beach.
