The location cannot be beat, but the hotel is definitely older. It was cheaper than the rest. The breakfast was pathetic, but they let us use the microwave in the lobby since there wasn't one in the room. We were NOT informed ahead of time that there is a daily parking fee so we had to pay extra JUST TO... More

My family and I stayed here for three days and it was awesome. I got a great deal on the room, which was huge! The kids had plenty of space to be kids. Very nice pool area. Directly across from the beach. Easy to walk everywhere from this location. Yummy ice cream shop too! Very good selection for quick breakfast.... More

This hotel is showing signs of age, but it's cheap. We don't hang around the room during visits to the beach, so this worked for us. The water pressure is not all that great, but the beds were comfortable. Since this hotel charges $15 per day just to park, we won't be returning. Clearwater Beach used to be nice to... More

Great Location. This hotel is older, but right on the beach. Everything was within walking distance - no need to fight the traffic as the area can get very busy and parking is pricy. Rooms were large and clean, but bathroom was very small. Pool area was clean and outdoor area seemed to be well maintained for its age. Hotel... More

Had the opportunity to stay here over spring break with my two kids. This is a PRIME location hotel. Meer steps from the beach, which was the biggest draw for me and a feature that made the hotel more reasonable, [ie, don't have to pay extra for transportation to beach, entertainment and food and shopping on beach itself]. And I... More

So glad I picked this hotel. Right on the beach, I'm talking less than a 5 minute walk to get over to the beach and get all set up. Room was very spacious and was exactly what we needed for our stay. Everything was clean and the room was tidied up every day by a housekeeper. Front desk was very... More

As per prices hotel is good but don't expect much as far as services are concerned. Hotel is old and you may face some issues like water supply in bathroom etc, but i would say location of the hotel is very good, its in the center and beach is on walkable distance. If you are not getting deals on other... More

Came here when a group of us were visiting clearwater for a wedding. Perfect location just in front of the beach and close to shops and restaurants. The hotel and room were very basic but it was always clean and was perfect for having a room full of girls. Staff were always lovely. Breakfast was basic but perfect for the... More

Management staff and cleaning staff was very friendly. It was nice to have a little something to eat in the morning with coffee and juice in the lobby. The gardener was especially friendly. We talked to him as he was trimming the bushes and grasses. This hotel has a very nicely decorated pool area. The water temperature in pool was... More
