There is no reason to stay anywhere else on Clearwater Beach. Everything was exactly as advertised. The room was large with a balcony, microwave, mini-kitchen, and 2 queen size beds. All this for $107 a night plus tax. There were no added fees. The pool was heated and the hot tub was wonderful. There was a laundry by the pool and continental breakfast was free. The carpets and paint were fine. In my opinion the people who give this place a low rating are the same people who always complain about everything. Shepards next door has a good restaurant and bar with music. You can lay out by the econolodge pool and listen for free. It was great!! I will definitely go back. The room will hold up to 6 people, so a family could have a great vacation for a good price. The putt-putt golf across the street was fun also.

3 couples stayed here for a long weekend, specifically to go the the new Dali museum It is a decent hotel for the money and in a nice location. They do have smoking rooms so if you don't smoke I would definitely ask for a non-smoking room. We did pay extra for a room near the ocean ($99 per night), we enjoyed this every morning when we drank our coffee (maker in the room) on the balcony. The hotel has continental breakfast which consisted of coffee, juice and donuts and pastries. I would stay here again. If you are planning to spend a lot of time in St. Petersburg, I would probably stay closer. It was a 40 minute drive from Clearwater.

This is an older property and is in need of some updating. A coat of paint and some new carpet would go a long way, but nothing that would keep me from returning.

That being said, the rooms were clean and everything worked. Great view from the balcony. I had an issue with the wirless internet connection twice, but the front desk quickly took care of it both times. The hotel is close to shops and resturants Parking and the wireless internet were both free!

The hotel is located next to another property that has a outdoor bar and dance floor. The music lasts until about 1:30am. I had a great view of it from my room. However, when trying to sleep it can be an issue if you have a room on the north side. (take ear plugs)

I come to Clearwater Beach each year and this hotel would not be my first choice, but I would not hesitate to stay here again.

We have stayed in this motel for 10 straight years. Everyone here is wonderful and go out of their way to make our stay very pleasant. We have a room with an ocean view and it is always clean. We love the pool area that overlooks the ocean and the beach is always nice. You can step out from the pool onto the beach. We love the security of the motel. You must have a key to get into the pool area from the beach. That keeps the undesirables out. We have no complaint about this motel at all.

The hotel was clean and the room was large-had a balcony w/view of the gulf. Next door is a hotel that has an outdoor deck with live music all day long but I looked at it as free entertainment. Within walking distance-literally 2 block- is an IHOP and a Walgreens that had a 24 hour liquor store. There is also a beach shuttle that went up and down the island . This turned out to be a perfect location for a quick get away. The room has a small fridge,coffeemaker, stovetop with 2 burners and utensils. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The hotel is on a small beach and also has a pool with nice deck. I would highly recommend this hotel. It's not the Ritz but it is comfortable.

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.
