I went to Clearwater Beach with a couple of friends and we booked 2 rooms at this motel. The location was very good and it was close to the end of the beach area where we spent most of the weekend. The room I stayed in was fairly big and both beds and couch were comfortable. I think a cleaner bathroom would have made the impression even better though, since it looked just a bit dirty. It was also pretty quiet there and the road barely had any traffic. I didn't try the pool out, so I can't say much about it but it looked clean. When you are there the beach will most likely be of greater interest anyhow so I doubt it matters. A plus was that it didn't smell like smoke, as it so often does in older motels. Note that the check out is at 10 am, so it's a bit earlier than most places I'v been to.
One of the best things about this place is as indicated by others before me the owner and manager Joe, who really seemed to enjoy his job and take pride in the place. He was always around and could help us with whatever we were missing, which made the experience all the better. If this is the cheapest you can find I would definitely recommend it. I believe it's worth a visit. If I would ever come back to Clearwater Beach I'd most likely go back, if the price was right. And the beach really is close by, and a few nice restaurants with live music as well. So come try it out and have a great time!
