“ON THE BEACH...NOT FOR THE WHOLE FAMILY.”
Reviewed October 20, 2010

This was actually our second stay here. We had an ocean view with six perfect sunsets. The crowd at the next door "resort" is not family oriented so like I said...in walking distance to Clearwater pier with great food and atmosphere! Really, you get what you pay for.

We checked in for one night,after we checked in we went outside to enjoy the supposed private beach area was filled with boats, no where to swim. Their were a number of parties being held on both sides of the hotel. We went out to enjoy the bay but my husband and I we're welcomed by a couple of drunks. At sunset the boats hade cleared out and all the family's with children cam out to take pictures of the beautiful sunset but unfortunately everybody was welcomed by a couple who were having sex in plain view on the beach, the guest tryed to tell them to knock it off and go some where else, we reported it to the front desk but all they have done is gone to check out we were talking about and just went back inside to the office and did nothing about it. And to top it all off the $40 they asked for the deposit he never put it on the reciept so we couldnt get our money back. So we had nasty service, bad attitudes, thief on board, DO NOT TAKE YOUR CHILDREN.

i called the morning i left Orlando from Disney and found this hotel. it was on the water and about a mile from the main public beach. the kid at the desk was really nice, helpful and polite. i went to the public beach and found it to be a pain with parking and the water was not very clear with a viability of about a foot or so. we went back to the hotel that has a beach on the inlet which had clear water to about 3feet or so. the kids had more fun there, they even found a few live conch. the hotel is an old one but my room was very clean and i didn't see any bugs. the ac was very cold and i was pleased and i would go back and stay again. one thing the beds were stated as queen but found them to be full mattresses. the city of Clearwater were real friendly and the area was clean. i felt safe in the area with my 12 and 11 year olds.

The Econolodge is right on the beach.BEAUTIFUL location.We traveled with extended family and teenagers and a toddler, & felt it was a great location for all.The rooms were clean, NO smoke smell at all on the non-smoking floors(rare) Nice pool and pool deck facing the ocean.You can walk next door to Shepard's & enjoy the nightlife without having to pay for it in your hotel cost. We were not bothered by the surrounding music,actually enjoyed it! Within walking distance to the pier,great restaurants,convenience stores & a Walgreens for amenities.We will definitely be staying here again,were pleasantly surprised how nice it was after reading bad reviews!

This hotel is the worst hotel that I have ever checked into and checked out of. The beach is littered with cigarette butts and beer cans. This is not where you want to go if you are looking for a peaceful relaxing vacation. This is the place to go if you want crappy customer service, liars and loud disrespectful music blaring in your ears. My fiancé and I checked in to the hotel and left an hour and a half later and we were NEVER asked why by the person behind the front desk, he never said one word to try and make us stay. The guy at the front desk, we’ll call him Pete, asked us if the room was used and we told him that we used 4 towels, and he looked at how long we had been there and he said he would not charge us. A week goes by and we get charged for the damn room! Now, all of a sudden when we call back to see what happened with the charge, they are all concerned about not being able to fill the room. Well, maybe if they had good customer service or maybe took some pride in their business practices and told people what they are really like in the first place, they wouldn’t have had that problem. Do not waste your money!!!!

Between the unhelpful and ungrateful staff, and the moldly carpet this place offered nothing of a enjoyment at all. The beach was not a beach at all, real rocky. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone and I work at a Choice Hotel. -stars
