“Just ok”
Reviewed September 30, 2012

The rooms were clean and the beds were comfortable. We were in a suite that looked like it had been recently remodeled, however, the age of property was still evident.

The hotel has no beach to speak of and the non gulf view rooms have horrible views. I would rather have been looking at the parking lot than trash.

It is just a short walk to pier 60, which is nice.

Overall, I probably would not stay here again. For the price, i expected more.

Although, it is hard to complain too much about a clean, comfortable room with a friendly staff.

amazing hotel - our gulfview suite was beautifull and the view was amazing - staff and cleanliness astounding and the location of the hotel is really good - overlooking the gulf. Housekeepin are spot on - lovely towel animals for our return each day. Bar/resteraunt - staff very friendly and reasonably priced - the view and the rooms were awesome and I will definately be saving my pennies to return there hopefully next year.

Room Tip: the gulf view rooms have amazing views of the oceon

Stayed at hotel 9/16/2012. Excellent front of house service and housekeeping - top notch. The hotel was right on the waterfront and only a short walk to the beach and local seafront bars and restaurants. There was a happy hour 4 to 7 everyday during our stay which was really good. Only two drawbacks - no in room safe and there was a charge of 11 dollars a day + tax for parking.

Just spent 9/22 - 9/24 here in room 714. The location is perfect. Short walk to everything. gulf front balcony was incredible! Service at the hotel is great. The restaraunt is very good and reasonably priced. Tiki bar, pool both great. For a reasonably priced hotel on the water, this is the place! Loved every minute here and will return in the future. The only negative thing during our stay was the door to our room could use a little work. It did not close all of the way by itself. You just had to make sure to close it all of the way each time. Simple fix for maintenance.

Upon arriving I cannot say that I received the warmest of welcomes that I had read about prior to booking this hotel. And there was only one person who I recall was pleasant and I say her only one day of my stay here. As a priority club member I thought I would receive an upgrade but no dice due to my not having Platinum status.
I can say this. The Hotel was clean and someone was always cleaning and maintaining that clean smell about the place. For a mom that is so important to me.
The hotel was not directly on the beach BUT backed up to the gulf and the view as well as the breeze was amazing. You could sit in the lounge chairs and just get lost in that view. The close proximity was nice as well.
The cons to the stay was the ridiculous 12$ a day parking fee (Ridiculous), and the lack of a free continental breakfast.
It is however a nice hotel for a family stay. Not the most expensive and not the cheapest either but clean and comfortable.

Room Tip: If you can upgrade it is worth it. I saw the difference in the room size and it was amazing. Corne...

The staff were friendly and helpful, the hotel was clean but the amenities and location were lacking. Our room had a partial gulf view and the other part was the other buildings and the "junk stack" as my son so kindly referred to the area below us where they apparently kept all of their spare fence etc. The hotel offers full gulf views but from what we observed you are better off choosing a different facility. We were a little disappointed that no breakfast was available, especially given the price of the rooms although I don't think this is uncommon withd the other hotels. We plan on returning to Clerwater but I think another hotel will be in those plans. The pool area is nice and as priority club members we received 1 complimentary drink at the bar area and let's just say we were glad they were free!

On arrival we were given a very warm welcome. After checking in we went to our room. Very clean and spacious. Well equipped. Opened the curtains and Wow, what a veiw. Swimming pool, Palm trees then the sea.
We spent the afternoon on a sunlounger about three feet from the sea watching the Pelicans dive in front of us and then a Pod of Dolphins swim past.
Nice bar by the pool which is quite reasonable. Jimmy's restuarant offers a good menu. Hotel is well placed for exploring. The beach is just around the corner from the hotel. My only gripe - having to pay $12.00 dollars a day to leave your car in the hotel car park. This is a major complaint with most of the guest's

Room Tip: Definately have a Seaview room
