The hotel was reasonably priced for what you received. Outside was a little tired. Rooms were updated somewhat with a small refrigerator, microwave, and extra sink. They had "air" mattresses which should be replaced. They were adjustable but not very comfortable. I would rather pay a little more for a nicer room.

Thank you for your response. The Sleep Number beds are those type that you either love them or hate them. On your next stay with us ask if there is a room with no sleep number, we only have a few, if we can accommodate the request we will. Keep us in mind on your next trip to Clearwater!

Stayed here one night before a Convention in Tampa.
Hotel is clean, inside and out. Very nice breakfast included. Hot and cold items. Rooms are nice and beds are comfortable (Sleep Number). We were upgraded to a suite because we were Choice Privileges members. Free internet. Very happy with this hotel. Was really nice for the price.
Yes, in and out was a little bit of an issue, but staff will tell you way in and out on back side of hotel. Very easy. Staff were quick, pleasant and very helpful.
Will stay there again when in the area.

My family stayed here in late April. The hotel is showing its age, but is generally well-maintained. It is clean. The pool area is nice and large. Staff are friendly and helpful. Wireless internet is a bit on the slow side, but acceptable. The breakfast was fine. Good variety of items. Variety of restaurants nearby, some within walking distance. Shopping area with Super Target is close. Road construction in front of hotel is an issue. Helpful hint: be sure to find the back entrance to the property. You can cut through an office park area and get on a side street that allows easy access to Gulf-to-Bay Blvd. (Hwy 60).

This hotel offers great value for money, its clean, comfortable and the staff are hard working and very friendly (they really do exceed expectations). The breakfast was great and always replenished when running low. The bayside bar and diner was also great and the meals excellent value. Thank you for a lovely holiday and will certainly stay here if we visit Clearwater again.

Warning, construction along Hwy 19. Also, navigation systems may send you in the wrong direction when trying to find this place. It is on the frontage road just north of Gulf-to Bay Blvd (aka Hwy 60). That said, that staff was friendly upon check in. The room smelled very strongly of cleaning deodorizer (sickeningly so). The room is tired (worn carper, stains, marginal paint in some places, water stains on ceiling). No "do not disturb" sign to put on door so awakened by housekeeper knocking on door in morning (was jet lagged from a 3 hour time change and trying to sleep in on vacation). Sleep number bed was groovy, but the control didn't work properly so I couldn't get it soft enough. In room fridge is nice size (not super small like many). Breakfast was ok, although the site map says it goes until 1030 but the less than friendly staff at the breakfast said 1000. Food was ok but I wouldn't rave about it as other reviewers have. It is just ok. If you were paying extra for it then it would be sub par. Guest laundry has a dryer that is hideously noisy (high pitched squeal) that I could hear in my room until after I went and closed the door that had been propped open. Average in cleanliness. Weather sripping on bottom of door in disrepair and it is Florida. A couple small bugs in the bathroom (glad I was solo on this trip, my lady would have been completely NOT ok with bugs in the bathroom).

Room Tip: Rooms facing pool aren't necessarily best: lots of people smoke and the stink of their cigarette...

Thank you for your updates I will be sure to bring these issues to my GM's attention. I do apologize for your inconveniences during your stay. Unfortunately with the navigation systems they just are not updating quick enough with the construction opening up etc. You could've called the desk and they would of been more than happy to bring you a DND sign for your door. Our breakfast has always ended at 10am so if you came down after that time there would of not been a big array out as during normal hours. Thank you for your response and again my apologies.

Don't know if all the rooms have sleep number beds or just the handicapped ones but they are GREAT. Neither my wife or I are handicapped but I think they gave us this room because it was the last one available. GREAT breakfast, also!!! Pancakes, eggs, bacon, sausage, fruit, pastries--well, you get the idea. Nice friendly staff. Now,all that being said, it's still an old motel that's been remodeled--not perfect but certainly acceptable. Also,try to get a room in the back to avoid as much road noise as possible.

Room Tip: Get a room in the wayback

I love the Sleep Number bed too! 95% of the hotel our those type of beds. Yes, our breakfast does beat many, we are the only one in the area that actually has a FULL hot breakfast buffet. Glad you enjoyed your stay and look forward to seeing you again! Thank you for your response!

As other Phil's fans have noted this hotel is in an optimal location; literally 3/4 of a mile from the stadium. Pet Friendly and loved the sleep number beds; dont know what those others are talking about but they were comfortable and performed as billed. Staff was very friendly and housekeeping accommodating of our dog. Very conveniently located to other eateries. If i did have one slight it would be that if you didnt want a king sized bed your only other option is a double; which we got so our dog could sleep on his blanket on the bed. Maybe they dont come in queen size I dont know but despite them being doubles they were still very comfortable.
