I stayed in Travelodge for 2 nights and I must say that our stay was really comfortable. Rooms are clean and maintained. You get free parking, Wi-Fi and continental breakfast. Hotel staff is really nice and helpful. It's 15 mins drive from clear water beach. I would recommend this hotels who are looking for budget and comfortable stay in clearwater.

This was our quick next choice after our previous choice didn't meet our expectations. Inexpensive, excellent breakfast choices (waffles and Activia yogurt!!!). Rooms were good (no musty/mildew smells like the previous choice). Only downfall was the street construction made getting around a bit more confusing, but that's not the hotel fault. Excellent service. Would return if I'm ever in the...

I booked this hotel using Priceline and I had decent expectations since it was a two star if I remember right. I got an excellent value I thought at $40 (before taxes).The staff member at the front desk was not dressed professionally and did not know whether the hotel offered portable cribs or not. The room was a mixed bag....

After a very poor stay in Ocala, we continued on to Clearwater, Florida. This hotel was not bad at all. We stayed for 4 days. The room was clean, no rowdy drunk people, pool was sparkling clean. I especially liked the tiled floors in the room. The pool area itself needs a little TLC...cosmetic fixes mostly. I can not say...

In town for funeral. One day. Room decent. Immediately pulled covers back for inspection. The sheets are very very used becuase you are able to see through the wornout portion. Also, pillows were as flat as the mattress. I requssted two more pillows and got 2 more flat pillows. This is a sign of upscaling. The pillows have been over...

Excellent friendly service. Clean decent sized room which unfortunately had a mould smell. It was quite basic compared to what we have usually got in this price range. Breakfast was good. Motel was cheap and functional. It was fine but I probably wouldn't stay here again

We only stayed one night and didn't use the pool, but the room was clean and comfortable and a free breakfast is available, so exactly what we wanted. We couldn't get the free wifi, despite being close to the front desk, but were able to connect via the hotel next door. Location is good and the room cost us just...

All the staff, particularly the front desk, was exceptionally pleasant and helpful. Additionally, this is the most pet friendly motel ever!!! Our room was facing the pool and had all tile flooring. This is an older building, but it was clean and comfortable. We spent seven nights there, it was very affordable, the Continental breakfast was in line with most,...
