“Great location, friendly and helpful staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 2, 2012

This resort is more of a motel, but with great customer service and location at an unbeatable price. My two complaints would be (1) although rooms are designated nonsmoking, people are allowed to smoke outside the rooms (and apparently many people who choose this resort like to smoke); (2) the very thin exterior door - even a child could punch through it. It was thinner than an interior door and quite frankly made us feel less then secure despite the slide lock, bolt and automatic lock on the door. I would still recommend this place. The people that run the place were super helpful and the room and bathroom were clean. Jenson gave us two great recommendations for breakfast and dinner and helped us check in for our flight home. Overall, a very pleasant experience right on the marina and across from Clearwater beach!

Room Tip: Room 29 offered good views from the second story.

This hotel is conveniently located, clean and comfortable with friendly hosts. You can't beat the price for the quality you get. You can walk to everything - beaches, restaurants, tour boats and not have to worry about finding a place to park you car. The suites are great because you have plenty of room and you can even cook a meal or snack if you like.

I was seriously shocked about this resort! I read all the reviews and thought they had to be fake. I was completely wrong! I normally stay at top name hotels but this little place was excellent. I can't even come up with a complaint. Its clean staff is friendly eventbe guest our friendly. Its close to everything and the view is amazing! I will definitely come back here again and again! I just cant get over how wonderful this resort is!

This was the second time we have stayed at this resort and to be fair the first time was a year ago and i was a little bit worried that things might have changed as many hotels are not the same the 2nd time around, i shouldnt have been worried, the place was immaculate in every way, Tom, and Jenson who were behind the desk whilst we were there were fantastic hosts.
I hope people read do take my advice and stay there
Well worth the money in every way

Room Tip: We had room 7 on the ground floor and it was great

we found this resort while at clearwater for the day, we decided to come back the following year for 4nts, it really is a little gem,overlooking the marina a short walk to the beach and pier, plenty of bars/restaurants/shops. The room was large with everything you needed and everywhere was spotlessly clean, all the staff were very friendly and Tom on the front desk was very helpful, will definitely be going back.

Room Tip: i think the rooms on the upper level was better, ( the view not the quality )

For the price, it's a decent stay. If you're in to new or upgraded surroundings, not the place for you. But it IS clean and solid--literally. I personally like the older, poured concrete type structures. Location right on the harbor amidst newer, taller, hotels is the best feature. Two story building. Stayed on the first floor but had to keep curtains pulled because of people sitting right outside the window. Had a bad experience with those people--a large beer-drinking group who apparently boated in from North Florida. In addition to being right outside my window, they had their music blasting from the boat. Told the young lady working the front desk (twice) who had them turn it off (twice). I went out myself after the third time they cranked it up and several of the redder necks wanted to fight apparently. But cooler heads prevailed and they didn't show back up during my one night stay. Lesson: avoid ground floor room.

Room Tip: Uh, second floor. Period.

I found this little resort on trip advisor and drove over from Disney for 1 night. We were staying at a large resort in Orlando and weren't quite sure what to expect with this smaller motel. We wanted to check out the area for future vacations and I can honestly say I was very pleased with the accomodations. The rooms were very clean, comfortable and the location was perfect. The beach is a short walk across the main street with many restaurants/bars also close by. We will definately be returning to this property. I want to thank Tom for taking the time to show us the other room types available and answering our various questions about future reservations.
He was very pleasant and helpful!
Thanks Tom and look forward to staying again with you guys soon!
