“Awesome”
Reviewed May 21, 2012

I have stayed at East Shore Resort 18 years ago, when my kids were 9 and 6. It was great then, and it's even better now. We stayed for a week and had an awesome time. My granddaughter couldn't get enough of the pool. I love the new dock and the commons area where we met a lot of wonderful people from all around. This is the most inclusive resort I have ever stayed at, there was nothing we needed to bring besides beach towels. Lynn, the manager is very friendly and professional, she keeps the resort spotless. Lynn has it all under control. Looking forward to seeing her again next year.

We had read the great reviews before arriving but we were unprepared for the high level of cleanliness and the many amenities. Units are large and exceptionally well-equipped, including celing fans, COLD central AC, two flat screen TVs, a very well supplied kitchen with a full size refrigerator. The pool sparkles and is surrounded by flowers. The resort is small and private with only thirteen units and there is a large dock that looks out on the bay. Clearwater Beach is only five minutes away through the busy, upscale downtown.

Manager Lynn is always around and she is extremely solicitous and professional. We will return whenever we can!

Room Tip: There are two bedroom units that front on the bay if you reserve early!

We stayed here for four days while escaping from frigid weather in the north. Lynn, the manager, helped us in every way possible. Others staying here were friendly and were more like neighbors than motel guests.
We parked our car at East Shore on Friday afternoon and didn't use it again until we left on Monday. Just about everything you need is within walking distance or a short drive away.
We're staying here again in October and highly recommend East Shore to anyone who wants to stay somewhere that feels like home.

We have stayed at East Shore Resort 4 times now and have enjoyed each visit. Quiet, clean and friendly, it feels like coming home. We love having the kitchen to have a few meals in, easy walk to the beach and Lynn seems to get us whatever we need. We'll be back.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the bay or with a porch.

My husband, granddaughter and I spent an enjoyable week at East Shore during March Break. Lynn, the manager, met us at the airport
and drove us back a week later. Throughout our stay she was most
helpful in providing information and suggestions about what to do in
the area. Our accomadations were very clean and had all the necessary
amenities, including a well-equiped kitchen. The location was ideal as
it was close to the beach, restaurants and shopping. We enjoyed
relaxing in the private, heated pool,reading on the patio or reaxing on
the pier. The long-stay guests and the motel owners were also very
friendly and helpful. We especially enjoyed the barbecue the owner organized for all the guests.
Hope to return someday!

Stayed with my wife an child for only 3 nights for a brief vacation at the start of a business trip. I wish we could have stayed for at least a week. As so many others have mentioned, Lynn is very helpful and gracious. She's also very knowledgeable about the area and had many helpful recommendations for family activities. We stayed in the newer building with the penthouse and great view of the water, which was more than roomy enough for the three of us. The older ground-level units looked like they would also be very nice places to stay.

Our 7-year-old loved the pool and was in it every chance he'd get. It reminded me of the motels we'd stay in when I was a child.

The music playing through the outdoor speakers is a nice touch. Since the place is right on the water, it would be very cool for the owners to install a hydrophone so the guests could here the sounds of dolphins and manatees when they're around.

we stayed for 5 nights at the east shore resort motel !!! was VERY relaxing !!! walking distance to shops, resaurants and beach ... yet away from hustle and bustle ! Lynne the care tacker was really helpful, and the laundry (free) was really handy to do all that last minute wash (no washing to do when home)was great!!!
we caught fish, and could cook them on the really great weber BBQ, then enjoy our meal on the pier.
everything is in excellent condition ... kitchen, pool area BBQ equipment .... highly recommended.
