First off I'm not sure where these drunks and hoes are these other reviews speak of I have had no problems since I arrived in December. This motel has nice rooms for a good price, heated pool and free ice. Owners are easy to get along with and very friendly. I've been here for a month and I love it....

Yes you may have found a very cheap hotel, but its for all that you have to deal with in this place.

I loved the pool. It was heated. It felt so good. But, the owner is horrible. He told us be got the sheets dirty and actually threw them in the trash. I didn't even sleep in the bed but 3 1/2 hours. And, I took a bath before I got into bed. So, beautiful place. The owners suck.

Stayed for one night at Gulfway Inn. This is a small, well run and cared for motel very close to the beaches. The room was clean, beds were comfortable, and towels were fairly new. The paint and carpeting looked newer and the furniture was in good repair. The manager, Victor, was personable and helpful. They offer coffee and Danish in...

The pool was big and clean and the motel is less than a 15 minute ride to Clearwater Beach. Supermarket right next door. Would recommend to all my friends and...

I checked in Earlier today around 1pm. The room was not even ready, so I Waited for 15 minutes. Finally after getting checked in, I went into my room- it was a disgrace. Dirty, no towels, cracks and holes in the wall, filthy window, etc. I had a family emergency and needed to leave 3 hours later, and they wouldn't...

I wanted to save some money on a two night stay in Clearwater. This was a good little motel in the center of Clearwater. The price was right. The guy a the desk was very friendly and helpful. This is no luxury hotel, but I feel it is a very good value. I walked over to the Publix grocery store...

I had a nice exeperience here staying with my family . Room, pool, location were good. Worth staying. It was clean and hygenic. Having the owner right on site makes a different and as a small business owner I appreciated his hands on approach. The rooms were clean and functional I will definitely stay there my next trip to Clearwater....
