Very clean & cozy in a super location, at the harbor. We wanted something more unique, not high rise, not run of the mill...and this fit the bill! If only it had not been raining, we would have sat outside by the water and watched the boats...maybe next time. With a low key atmosphere, perfect for relaxing. I only regret...

My husband and I went to Clearwater for a weekend getaway. My husband loves the boat traffic of the bay and I love the beach/ocean. We both love spotless, affordable, accommodations. I had done a lot of research on Trip Advisor and made sure Sea Captain was on my list to check out when we arrived on a Friday to...

We had seen this place on Trip Advisor and had pre-programmed it into our satnav hoping we could get a room when we got there. I wanted to stay here rather than a large mainstream hotel as it just looked lovely. We were not dissapointed the check in lady said she had a harbour view room available. We took it...

This hotel was the perfect find. When we travel we like to stay at small locally owned hotels. Thanks to trip advisor we have found the best hidden gems. The Sea Captain is located in a harbor but is about a block from the beach. They have a great pool and many chairs along the grass by the sea wall...

We live in Clearwater and had only stayed here many many years ago with our kids who are now grown. Forgot what it was like. Excellent stay. It was our anniversary weekend and we found everything to be super clean all the time and staff was very friendly. They have a continental breakfast in office every morning. View was great...

My husband was doing a triathlon in Clearwater and we choose The Sea Captain as our hotel. It was excellent - great location, clean rooms and grounds and very helpful service. We walked to the beach in 2 min....walked to restaurants in 2 min....everything we needed was right there.

We unexpectically had an extra day in Florida and found the Sea Captain on the Trip Advisor website. We called just a few hours before our stay and they were able to accommodate all of us in two rooms that were right next to each other with a nice balcony overlooking the boats on the bay. The rooms were clean...

This resort is more of a motel, but with great customer service and location at an unbeatable price. My two complaints would be (1) although rooms are designated nonsmoking, people are allowed to smoke outside the rooms (and apparently many people who choose this resort like to smoke); (2) the very thin exterior door - even a child could punch...

This hotel is conveniently located, clean and comfortable with friendly hosts. You can't beat the price for the quality you get. You can walk to everything - beaches, restaurants, tour boats and not have to worry about finding a place to park you car. The suites are great because you have plenty of room and you can even cook a...
