This hotel has been newly upgraded. The rooms are very spacious and are nicely furnished with plantation shutters and tile floors. The rooms have views of the water on one side and the marina and/or pool on the other. It's well maintained, well lit, quiet and within walking distance to downtown Dunedin, where there are some cute shops and galleries. The Bon Appetit Restaurant on the premises is superb and the chef takes pride in presentation and creating food with many tastes and textures. The orange vinaigrette salad dressing was one of my favorites!! Both hotel and restaurant staff are very friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable about the area and happy to share information.

Honeymoon Island and Caladesi Island are just a short distance away and have beautiful beaches. You can also rent kayaks.

I would most definitely stay here again and have already recommended it to several friends.

Should be your number one choice in the area. The sunset view was beautiful, the atmosphere was romantic and inviting. We were sorry that our stay was so short.

One of the best hotels during our roundtrip. Normally i am very carefull with booking hotels. Because lot of hotels were much more than 200 dollar a night round places like St Pete Beach and Clearwater Beach , i checked Dunedin and this hotel on the internet.
Its just a couple of miles north of Clearwater Beach and man i was so happy i found this (way out of the crowds). The location is ideal. Nature all around you and most of the times you only hear the birds. The marine is very quiet and cosy. The pier is great for taking pictures of the sunset. The small villages is easy living. Nearbye there are some lovely houses with private jetty´s and nesting fishing hawks. The hotelroom is nicely decorated, very large and complete with everything you need (free internet, safe, fridge, small kitchen, 2 compfy beds etc) and also give you beautifull views over the water. The room has a door at the front and one at the back, always with great views over the water. There are 2 chairs at the balcony/terras. The rooms are also very clean, you can open windows etc as well.
The staff is great and breakfast is in the restaurant. The free breakfast is very basic but the location is wunderfull. We had some dinners there as well and they were good for the money. Parking is free, but sometimes you can not park your car at the front of your room, because there is valid parking due to party´s in the restaurant (nice to see how the boys run and run in organise a smart valid parking overthere)
The beach at Caledesi is good. But the beach at Honeymoom Island is maybe even better. Great nature, swimming, hiking, beach, birding and great shelling. Watch for the big (nesting) eagle on Honey Moon island and many other creatures. Bush gardens is one hour drive. Clearwater Beach and the other beaches are 10 minutes by car. If you like family beaches go to Clearwater, if you like nature beaches go to Honeymoon and Caledesi. the entrance for Honey Moon Island is 5 dollar, take the long beach, the first 300 yards of beach have some big stones etc after that you will see a paradise beach with a only few people, mostly smiling because its so nice. To the end of the beach its a hour walking and its worth it.
Its a great hotel, not a hilton one and not a party one either. Its a very comfy hotel from where you occassionally can see dolphins, eagles and manatees from your balcony etc.
What else do you need more te relax and enjoy this place in Florida.
We come back for sure !!
From your room you can walk in a few minutes to the small center (very nice special ownmade icecream´s at the corner. The (special) roads for cycling are good as well.
I first booked 4 nights, but stayed overall totally 6 nights (590 euro). We come back !!

There aren't too many places to stay in Dunedin but the Best Western Yacht Harbor would be at the top of any list. The location on the waterfront with the marina and a small pier for watching sunsets or fishing is excellent. You can walk to the historic downtown in a couple of minutes where you'll find great restaurants and lots of interesting shops.

The rooms on the second floor have small private balconies which overlook the parking and marina and on the other side where you enter the rooms, there is a long walkway overlooking the water. Rooms are bright, airy, comfortable and pretty. See my photos.

The restaurant is great for breakfast - continental breakfast is included but for a little more you can get a more extensive menu and the waterfront view is a nice way to start the day. (For a change, you can walk into town and eat a wonderful breakfast at a very cool place called the Chick-A-Boom...the outdoor table area in the back is great!)

The heated pool is small but clean and we loved the warmth of swimming in March...and the pool area is comfortable for relaxing in the sun.

It really is all about location...the Best Western could be a base for exploring a large area...Clearwater Beach, Honeymoon Island, Tarpon Springs...so much within a short drive.

You won't be disappointed if you book here.

This is a quiet and charming hotel in a quaint little town within a few miles of Clearwater and Honeymoon Island. It's perfect for those seeking relaxation away from the party atmosphere. It's directly on the water and every room has amazing views (front door overlooks the bay, back door overlooks the local marina), very clean, within walking distance to downtown Dunedin shops and eateries, and modern and decorated in nautical blue/yellow. The Bon Appetit restaurant that's attached has excellent food but fairly expensive. The parties in our group reserved different ways (directly thru the hotel website versus the Holiday Inn website versus by phone) and received very different rates. Upon arrival, the hotel staff needed hard copy confirmation of the rate in order to honor. Book early as the rates vary widely - we got a great deal of $149 per night during peak season. Would recommend the second floor and I would ask for a larger room - some are much smaller than others. We enjoyed a dockside restaurant called Ozona Blue 3 miles away in Palm Harbor as well as Sea Sea Riders up the street from our hotel. Don't go here for a great pool - it's quite average. Otherwise, we loved it.
