“Well updated older hotel that could use just a LITTLE more updating”
Reviewed December 17, 2013

The Clearwater Beach Hotel is actually two older hotels right across the street from each other that are now run by the same office. We stayed in the two story building.

The location is great and so is the price. It's not labeled as a "Resort" so the price you pay is as advertised plus normal tax. That is refreshing. The hotel has strict anti-party policies but It is just a very short walk from Shepards. This is great as you can have a good time at Shepards and then walk back to a quiet room when you are done with the music and partying etc...

The pool area was nice and being an older pool, the deep end was actually deep at 8 1/2 feet. The pool area at the 4 story building was real nice and right on the canal. Both buildings have the rooms open to the outside. The two story building has small divider walls on the outside between the rooms and a couple outdoor chairs and a small table for each room so you can sit outside. The staff was very nice. There is a washer / dryer but they looked real rough and were right out on the backside of the office building and a couple feet from the street and sidewalk.

The room we had was a single King and was very clean. The updating was done rather well. The hotel is older so there are some things that just cannot be changed (Without massive cost) such as the room size and layout. The bathtub / shower is smaller as is the whole bathroom. There is a window instead of a vent fan. The vanity and countertop were new and nice however, the toilet could have used a new seat not just another layer of paint...

There were a few downsides however with our room which may have just been particular to our room. The older floor mount air conditioner unit had a very loud start and stop noise when the compressor cycled. The tiny fridge had a nice little pop when it went on and off as well. It was a shame since it was so nice and quiet at the hotel in general. It made it an exercise in timing to try to get to sleep while the AC was running. Also, the toilet had a slow leak and kept filling every 30 min or so.

Interestingly, the bed was probably the most comfortable I have slept on in a hotel and the linen was very nice and seemed to be 100% cotton. Everything except the darn AC and toilet was conductive to a good night's rest.

Other reviewers for this hotel have noted the cleanliness of the rooms, and they are correct. According to the person at the front desk, the rooms have been renovated over the past year, and they have been kept up since. This is not a luxury hotel, in fact, it's a former Day's Inn, but it fits everyday needs quite well, especially for a beach hotel. The floors are tile, a good decision considering how carpet would collect sand from the nearby beach or easily get damp and musty from returning beach goers. And the tile is new as well. That said, a couple of throw rugs would be a nice touch. Not every day in this area of Florida is beach weather, and when a cold front does move through (as it did Thanksgiving week), having something warm and soft to put your feet on as you get out of bed would be nice! The hotel is located right in the heart of the Clearwater Beach area and all its activities with the Gulf and restaurants all within easy walking distance. There is no breakfast offered as apparently was the case when it was a Day's Inn, but there is good reason for that. The room that was used (the only one available) was very small would accommodate just a few guests at a time. As noted, there are plenty of restaurants in the area, and there is a coffeemaker in the room along with a microwave and small refrigerator. About the only complaint one could have is with the A/C-heater which clicked on and off throughout the night during our stay (the heater part), but it worked and is easily adjustable. Also, the WiFi can be slow at times. Taking advantage of offers from sites like TripAdvisor will get you a nice, clean room in a great location with a competitive room rate, especially considering it is surrounded by hotels charging triple-digit room rates.

Room Tip: Get an odd-numbered room higher up and you get a nice few of the marina on the bayside.

The hotel is in a great location! The beach is across the street and there are plenty of shops and restaurants to walk to. Another option of getting around is the trolley, but we opted to walk.
The hotel staff was very friendly and the hotel was extremely clean! that is the first thing I look for. The floor is tiled so I would suggest bringing slippers. I always bring them and am glad I did. The hotel itself is older, but it is clean! The shower pressure was a little low, but I prefer it that way. The sink had a stain in it, but it was within the actual corian material, it was still clean! There is a coffee maker that looked brand new with coffee, a microwave and mini fridge. The bed was comfortable but the pillows were not. My only complaint is that we were in room 101, ground floor next to the elevator motor. Every time someone used the elevator the motor was so loud! We heard it all night. My suggestion: Ask not to be in room 101. The place was spotless and the towels were big and soft! We would recommend this to our family and friends and would stay there again. They also have a computer where you can check in for your flight and print your boarding pass.

Room Tip: Do not stay in room 101. It's next to the elevator motor.

This hotel was the best deal I found on Expedia and I was very pleased with the location. Everything is within walking distance, and the beach is literally only a 2-3 minute walk away. The rooms aren't huge and are pretty standard, nothing fancy, but very clean, AC works great, and microwave and mini fridge in room is a great convenience. I would definitely stay here again instead of paying way more for one of the big chain hotels. This is a great place to stay!!

My wife and I picked this hotel for o r night. The facilities were awesome, and the amenities as well. The only remark I would have to mention is the traffic noise. I know there is not much management can do on that adpect, but besides that, it was a good experience. =)
