“Great location and friendly owners”
Reviewed March 12, 2014

My husband and I stayed here during a recent business seminar hosted in a downtown resort. The location was within walking distance of our meetings and we had easy access to the beach and popular local eateries. We also appreciated the quiet of the northern end of Clearwater Beach. Part of our motivation for staying here was the price. We appreciated not having to pay the price of the resort hotel. We were warmly greeted by the owners and made to feel that we were long-time friends. The room we stayed in was very clean, but cozy. We kept trying to figure out how one could configure the room to give it an illusion of more space--mirrors, perhaps. Our privacy was respected and though room cleaning service was available, you had to request it. Plenty of clean towels and additional coffee supplies were provided daily. We know that Mark and Emory are working to upgrade the facilities and so were forgiving of a few things that we observed that could use a facelift. We would stay here again, but would do a bit more research to find out if a larger room was available. Thanks, Mark and Emory, for making us feel so welcome!

Room Tip: Talk to the owners when you book to make sure the room you reserve is what you want.

I've stayed at this motel many times over the years. It has an excellent location on the Northern end of Clearwater Beach, which is the quiet end, with tons of free parking (don't tell city hall, because they'll ruin everything and put up more meters, lol). The North end is close enough to walk to the heart of the city, so you get the best of both worlds. Mark and Emory have done a great job of things, and couldn't be any nicer! I recommend the special "swim with the dolphins at sunset" package that they offer (see photos). Can't wait to get back there next year, because it's absolutely freezing here in Atlanta, I mean Philly.
Angelos Pizza across the street serves up some amazing Chicago deep dish. Coupons available in local papers.

Room Tip: I'd go with a top floor room.

My wife & I arrived on a Thursday evening from a late flight into Tampa. Clearwater Beach is only a 25 minute drive from the airport. The North Sunrise Motel is easy to locate and a short walk from bars, restaurants and the pier. Hosts Mark & Emory were prepared for our late arrival and had room keys & parking permit on stand by. Our room was clean & comfortable and a great place to recharge batteries before heading off on our road trip.

This is not my first stay at this Motel, but it was definitely the best! the new owners, Mark and Emory are so laid back and always busy keeping the place tidy and enjoyable. they even treated us to a bottle of wine ( now they will be mad at me - as you will all expect it! lol )
I plan on going back real soon and consider them friends.

Room Tip: there really isn't a bad room here, but pool side is my favorite.

My first time in Clearwater Beach, Florida and little did I know I find home at North Sunrise Motel. Mark and Emory are awesome!! The beach across the street, the cleanest pool I have seen and the beautiful landscaping is just the beginning of what NSM has to offer!! The beds are so comfortable with great pillows. Not that you spend much time there. Chairs and tables outside your door to enjoy the wonderful Florida weather. Rocking chairs, benches, loungers, wrought iron chairs and tables. Great time had by all around the pool. Emory is always good for a story and a laugh. I know when I will Always stay when I am In Clearwater Beach.

Room Tip: Pool side rooms the best

Thank you for taking the time to write such a nice review about your stay with us. Emory was pleased to hear how much you enjoyed the pool and the landscaping (that's his area of expertise). It makes it all worth while for us when we know our guests are having a wonderful time at the North Sunrise. We can't wait until you visit your "second" home again. Don't stay away too long.

Our trip to Florida ended with 2 days in Clearwater. With no reservations booked anywhere we found North Sunrise Motel. Emery and Mark were terrific hosts- anything needed they were happy to help! The pool was so inviting, clean and warm. Happy hour by the pool was laid back n fun n friendly.The beach is right across the street! Can't wait to visit there again! P.S. Emery, can you let us know when the fruit tree fruit has ripened (Blue)?

This very quaint and charming motel is just the perfect place to relax and enjoy Clearwater Beach. We planned to stay in Clearwater Beach for just a few days and extended our stay for almost 3 weeks. Great, great location as you are within walking distance to restaurants, Pier 60 and the beach is right across the street. The most enjoyable part of staying at the North Sunrise were the managers Mark and Emory. They are so fun and hospitable. Days spent by the pool with them and other guests provided us with lots of laughs and great entertainment. This motel is a "must stay" place. Super clean and very comfortable, you won't be disappointed.

Since you both have left, the white egret has been waiting for you both to return!!!! It still shows up around "cocktail time" waiting for you both to pay attention for its "close up" pictures. I am glad you both enjoyed the place and glad to made it back to Minnesota safely. By the way, don't let the tan you both got here "fade" in that cold temperature! All our best. Emory and Mark.
