“Adequate lodging at a great price”
Reviewed February 2, 2011

I've never stayed at a Travelodge before, so I was a little nervous, but the TripAdvisor reviews were decent and the price was excellent (booked through Priceline). Front desk staff was friendly, room was clean, and breakfast was sufficient. Rooms open to the outside. If you prefer a hot breakfast, Lenny's is literally steps from the hotel. We visited Clearwater Beach, St. Petersburg, and Tampa, and the hotel proved to be pretty centrally located to reach all of those. On the other hand, it's not really close to any of them. We didn't get a chance to try the heated pool, but it looked to be clean and a fairly large size. Hotel staff was happy to provide us with toiletries we forgot. Wireless Internet was free and fairly fast.

Nice, clean, inexpensive hotel for the frugal and willing traveler. Good service, clean rooms, nothing exceptional, but great when compared to the average hotel in its class.

Overall this is a great motel.. The new Owners are very interested in creating a motel that people will enjoy and remember. In other words, they want you to come back.. I believe they are fulfilling that goal as I will be back.. The only thing lacking is a hot tub out by the pool which the manager and I discussed.. Hopefully there will be one there by the time I return. In addition, the pool area is very nice with decking, gazebos and even a gas grill that can be used by the quests.

Overall, good hotel for the price. Room very clean. Staff helpful & pleasant. Light breakfast minimal but did have fresh fruit and was replenished. Beds were very firm. On the negative side, no hair dryer, no chain or metal bar at top of door, from second floor room could hear people talking in the parking lot, loud shower next door, water temperature in shower fluctated, and loud ac/heater. Good restaurant for breakfast & lunch next door.

Our second stay this year....we had two rooms for one week..all well again...a minor electrical problem was resolved immediately. Totally recommendable. Perhaps one suggestion...the free continental breakfast could include some bread items like bagels or toast...present offerings had only sugary rolls and muffins etc...
Reiterate great location and friendly staff.

My mother (in her 80's) and I stayed at this Travelodge while visiting my brother who lives nearby. For an economy hotel, I was pleasantly surprised at the rooms, great pool, and amenities. What really stood out was the staff who couldn't have been more of a pleasure to talk with and who were obviously very concerned about making our stay an enjoyable one. The one suggestion I have is that some hand rails be placed in some of the rooms so an older person would feel more secure climbing in and out of the bathtub. I plan to be back in the area for another visit, and would definitely stay here again! ~ Beth Q

Hi Beth, Thanks for staying with us on your trip to Clearwater Florida. We really enjoyed having you and your family here and we would love to see you again in the spring. Please let us know if your mother is coming and I will personally make sure you are in a room with hand rails. Hope you won the card games; you were one up on your brother last time we talked. Happy Holidays from Veneita, Maxine, Kelly and all the staff at Travelodge Clearwater.

Just spent a few days here, and the rooms were clean & recently renovated. This hotel is located within a stones throw to anything you will ever need while in Clearwater. I noticed, this hotel has a few shady looking perminant residents living here, which I wasn't crazy about. All in all it was a good experience for me & my family.
