“Close to home and GREAT!”
Reviewed July 8, 2012

We are locals and stayed here for weekend. Great place, extremely clean and very friendly staff! Walking distance to everything and great views off balcony of intercoastal especially at night. When checking in you receive coupons for FREE items at each of the Frenchy restaurants and their store coupon gives you 10% off. Full size fridge which was nice, not a mini fridge. We lugged a cooler with us and didn't realize we didn't need to do that since they had the full fridge. Will know next time. Basket on table with 'real' coffee, Foldgers, not the cheap stuff that tastes awful and even a bag of popcorn for microwave :). Just wish they had fans on balcony so you would have some air movement when it is so hot in Florida during summer. Had a friend staying at Sandpearl and she came to check out our room and said she won't be paying the price of something she has again, she will stay at Frenchy's!!!! Stay here on your visit to Clearwater Beach! We are local and we know!

For 2 blocks off the beach on the marina side its worth it. Jim and Vickie are great! Got to meet the owner "frenchy" as well while at the pool. Pictures of the fun vibrant colors are very accurate and on the money. We stayed from June 20-27 during the tropical storm Debby and to my surprise we were safe being on the marina side! We will for sure be back and will for sure recommend this place to all!!!

Frenchy's Oasis was a great place to stay. This was probably the cleanest motel/hotel I have ever stayed in. The staff was extremely friendly and accommodating. As I rarely use the maid service in a hotel I appreciated the fact that the service was an option so the charge is not "built-in" to the room price. The location was great, a block and a half from the beach...close but away from the hustle and bustle. The pool was larger than it appeared in the photos and well maintained. I was surprised to see Frenchy on the premises so frequently; he is definitely not an absentee landlord.. If I ever get the chance to return to Clearwater Beach I will not hesitate to stay at Frenchy's.

I have been vacationing in Clearwater Beach for 40 years and this was by far my worst experience. At $139/night, one would expect a gulf view. Upon checking in, the management could not have been nicer..but infortunately, the hospitality ended there. I called management @ 10:00 pm to complain about the horrendous noise from the family with small children in the room above us. At 11:00 pm, it was still a problem. Several nights later, I called once again to complain, left a message, and no return call. The children above our room were jumping so hard on their floor that our lights were flickering! If you are looking for a relaxing time away from home, you probably do not want to stay here. If you want daily housekeeping, add another $20/day and don't forget, the office is in the next door building..which I found very inconvenient!

Arrived after the office closed, but they answered the after hours number the first time and we were in right away. It was cool to swim in the pool via the front door and fish off the dock out the back door. Everything is brand new except the original terazzo floors, which took me back to my childhood.

This is a perfect Efficiency motel. The location was great - right on the intercoastal and only a short walk to the gulf. The pool was clean, the rooms freshly painted and a good size, the staff was super friendly and helpful, and the price was right. We loved our week there and will be returning without question. We preferred not to have the additional daily maid service, but our towels were replaced as needed. The complimentary laundry services was a great addition. We enjoyed the motels fishing dock where egrets and pelicans would occasional land and loved the close proximity to restaurants and shops. Great place to stay, I would highly recommend it.

Nice place and all but typical Frenchy's management, nobody answers the phone, never can find staff, the place lacks the charm and warm of a owner. Don't let the steet appeal catch you here, go down the street where they treat you like a customer. This place is a total joke!
