“Wonderful Small Hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2013

I have been going to the Sea Captain for 40 years now. It is one of the small remaining small hotels in Clearwater. It is reasonably priced, clean and private. The rooms are very clean and most are efficiencies. It has beautiful views and is close to everything! I would highly recommend it!

It was the first trip to Clearwater. My friend and I loved the Sea Captain! Everyone on the staff was amazing! They go above and beyond to ensure your trip is amazing. Everything you need is very close to the resort. We enjoyed the pool area and watching the boats come and go on the bay. Can't wait to go on vacation again, and stay at the Sea Captain.

I have stayed at the Sea Captain for many years, it's the best. Great folks working there, grounds kept up top notch, great location. Easy reservations. Walking distance to many restaurants. Easy and close by parking.

Room Tip: Water side is quieter

This place was recommended to me when I had to attend a wedding nearby, it was great! Not fancy, or new, but clean and convenient and all you need (you don't go on vacation to sit in your room!). Right on the waterway, had a great pool, could walk to everything! Office personnel were great with recommendations and answering questions. When I return to Clearwater plan on staying here again.

Wow, I was so disappointed with this place. The worst thing was the cigarette smoke wafting in from the outside smokers every time we opened our door. Would not stay here again. Room was also very dark. Curtains opened to hallway. Location is the big plus.

With all the big names in the area, I stumbled upon this 'throw back in time' quaint retreat. This charming little inn was comfortable and relaxing. When you think resort you think big sprawling hi rise hotels one might need a golf cart to navigate around. Here you were just a few yards to the pool or sitting on the bay relaxing as the birds and boats floated by. Even a little fishing pier to catch one if you can. Or a quick walk to the car if you forgot something. And if you wanted the beach, a short walk across the street to beautiful sunsets and a white sand beach. Beautiful clean beach-walk and bike path that the city has really done a fabulous job. Back to the Sea Captain's clean, comfortable rooms. Our assigned room was just not right for my wife and I to stay the week as we thought we would need a little more room. No problem, the friendly staff switched our room immediately without a lot of fuss.

This was the second time I stayed here. The first was for business when I found this little gem and only stayed a couple of nights. I couldn't wait for an opportunity to come back with my wife. We enjoyed the week long stay and didn't want to leave. Now we're looking forward to our next visit back with our children and grand kids.

Room Tip: we liked the suites by the pool
