Clearwater Beach Hotel
Ranked #53 of 98 Hotels in Clearwater
Reviewed May 19, 2012

This hotel was the only one with vacancy left when we decided to go to Florida, which is how we ended up there. I am usually not a fan of hotels where your door is outside. Our first room, on the outside corner of the second floor, was miserable. One of the mattresses practically collapsed anytime anybody sat on it, and the other had a big dip in the middle. Facing the street meant it was super loud, and the bathroom was very small/crowded, even for my little kids. The straw that broke the camel's back was that I had to stand in several inches of water as I took a shower. Between all that and a lingering odor (I think it smelled like the off-gassing from plastic packaging, husband said it was just old hotel smell), I had enough. We asked to be transferred to a new room, and they were very nice about it. We ended up right next to the office on the first floor, still facing the street, but it was a bit quieter and the beds were better, so everything felt better after a decent-ish night's sleep. The fact that it was just two blocks from the beach made it tolerable. The kids enjoyed the pool, too. The woman at the desk told me the first floor rooms had been more recently updated, which explains why it was nicer, although there was still a bit of an odor.
One last tip, we had planned on trying to eat at ihop, just a few blocks away, but it was too crowded, so instead we tried a breakfast buffet at the grey hotel a little closer to our hotel on the same street as ihop, and it was great! Reasonably priced, lots of fresh fruit, actual eggs, warm traditional breakfast foods, plus yogurt and granola and whatnot. Whilewewon't stay at that hotel again, we would eat at that restaurant again.

At first glance the hotel is not much to look at, but our room was nicely updated and very clean. The location for the price is priceless! Everything is close by and the view from our room was beautiful. The staff was friendly enough ( not super friendly), but enough to crack a smile. The bathrooms were kind of tight squeezed for the average person.But once again, the location and the cleanliness of our room was great for the price.

Room Tip: first floor rooms seemed really noisy due to the traffic and location of those rooms

We had a nice 5 day stay at this hotel. The room was clean and updated. It is a short walking distance to the beach. The staff was friendly and helpful especially Brenda, the manager. She was helpful in printing our boarding pass and mailing the shirt I left. The cleaning staff did a good job in cleaning the room.

Room Tip: Higher floors away from the elevators are quieter on the east side.

Everything was fine until check out day. The staff was friendly, except for the manager. We had asked for a later check out the night before, and the front desk told us it would be absolutely no problem with no extra charge and that they would write our name on a list. The next morning, the manager called us and said we needed to be out. We explained to her that we had talked to the front desk the night before; however she tried to argue with us and say that we were inconviniancing them and the maids!!! After speaking to her for a bit longer, she finally said "Fine" and hung up the phone!!!!! With previous experience in customer service, I was taught to ALWAYS please the customer and never go back on your word. I am very shocked that the MANAGER acted this way towards customers, and it has totally changed my mind about ever staying here again.

Also, if you want a quiet place to relax, this isn't it. The walls are paper thin, and we could hear ruckus outside our door until late hours of the night.

I never feel the need to write reviews, but this incident was very upsetting and needed to be shared.

I stayed at this hotel for a week over March Break. Overall it is a nice, clean hotel very reasonably priced and very close to the the beach. I found the check-in very smooth and the front desk staff very nice and prompt on any questions I had. The rooms are very nice and clean and the cleaning staff does a very good job. The pool area is excellent and as mentioned above you are about a block away from the beach.
One caution on this hotel, I found a few nights it got loud outside (particularly the weekend) in the early hours of the morning. This was likely due to it being Spring break and during the week this was not a problem.
Overall though, this is a very good clean hotel very close to the beach.
