“Funky place grows on you”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 8, 2013

My first impressions: small room, smaller bathroom, practically nonexistent lobby.. Not at all what I am used to when traveling on business. But then it started to really grow on me. The pool service was friendly, the tiki bar was great, the coffee lady in the early AM was super nice, hanging out on the beach in the Adirondack chairs having coffee was relaxing, the location can't be beat. Once I relaxed it was a good beach resort. Laid back but with all the amenities to make a good vacation. We rented a sea kayak and were able to charge it to the room. I thought the beach cabana rentals were reasonable. Prices in general are a lot more reasonable than what you find in Orlando.

A few things to keep in mind: if you get a gulf coast view room you pay less but will overlook the massive air con roof units that seem to always be going and which are LOUD. Pay the extra for the pier 60 view, or get a room looking towards the street/bay. I was on the 7th floor overlooking the air con and I didn't want to sit on the balcony.

Note to hotel mgmt: you need to update the in-room air con units. They are also really loud and turn on and off a lot even though it wasn't even hot outside. The note saying don't cover the unit makes me think I'm not the first person who tried to rig the unit to make it quiet while I slept.

A n unexpected bonus, I'm a silver HHonors member and the staff waived the report and parking fee at check out -and I didn't even ask them to do that. Thanks!

Room Tip: Avoid rooms on the north side or the west side as they overlook the roof top air con units. Better o...

Picked this location for a long weekend with the family. The location was perfect and once there we didn't need to use the car again for the entire weekend. Lot's of things to do and eat within walking distance. The hotel is located right on the beach, so you can be dipping your toes in the water within minutes of arriving. The hotel staff was very helpful and friendly through out our stay. We enjoyed breakfast at the hotel each day and then ventured out for lunch and dinner. The hotel also has a pool if you want a break from the beach. Right next to the hotel is a playground an pier with entertainment; in the evening there was a movie on the lawn which was a hit with the family. The rate for the hotel was a little expensive, but given the location and everything you have access to, the rate is not unexpected.

We generally come to CWB twice a year and stay at the Hilton. The Hilton goes out of their way to make your stay special. It's so nice to be recognized as returning guests and to be so warmly greeted by everyone. I can't say enough nice things about our stay. Our room was clean and comfortable. Housekeeping was wonderful (thank you Anna!!!! We always love seeing you!! )
Truly another wonderful relaxing stay. already looking forward to our next vacation in May!! Can't wait to see everyone.

For my husband's birthday we decided to stay at the beach for the night (we live in Clearwater but not on the beach). I researched hotel prospects and decided on the Hilton. We had drinks in the Hilton bar before, but had not stayed with them. We were very pleasantly surprised with the property and room. The cleanliness was unbelievable. The comfort astonishing. We will definitely stay here again.

We spent two nights and three days in Clearwater Beach and as we usually do when we travel we chose to stay at a Hilton Branded Hotel.The room rate was reasonable for a hotel on the beach but the experience was not.

The positives are the Hotel is very clean and has a really beautiful beach.

The hotel portrays itself as a Smoke Free Hotel, it most definitely is not, the people either side of us were smoking in their rooms and there were people walking around the hallways smoking.

Apart from that if you want to relax on the beach on a Hotel owned chair be prepared, they charge a $20.00 per day resort fee, plus $7.50 per day to self park. Then they ask for a further $10.00 per person per day for a beach chair and $15.00 for an umbrella to sit under if you want to be shielded from the sun. I informed the girl at the booth that I had already paid the resort fee, but was informed that chairs, umbrellas and clam shell rentals are extra. So for our group of three it would have cost an additional $72.50 per day, over and above the cost per night to stay here and relax on the beach had we rented the chairs and umbrella.

The Hilton is the closest hotel to the heart of Clearwater Beach and offers excellent resort facilities and services. Room facilities were up to date and clean and staff was very helpful and friendly. Will definitely stay again on our next trip to Clearwater Beach.
