Booked last minute online. The blonde polish guy was very nice and quickly checked us in. He gave great recommendations of where to go and what to do in the area. I was surprised at the location and room since I really wasn't expecting it to be great. There is an awesome bar right next door with great music. They...

Now, this is a honest super honest review. I was skeptical about staying here from the reviews, and I am picky about where I stay! I am not disappointed! First off, this isn't a 5 star resort, and for what you get here, why pay more for the same thing? The hotel needs updated, and the rooms, but you don't...

We booked the room on Priceline last minute, so we weren't sure what to expect. There was a very long line at check in and only 1 person working. The elevators - slowest things I've ever been on!! The room location was beautiful, but the room itself was only ok. I could hear water running throughout the night, we never...

Could have spent $10 more and stayed next door at a cleaner, safer hotel. Music was loud all night long, cars were double parked in parking lot as there is not enough spaces for all guests. Outside doors to hotel do NOT lock so anyone can walk in any entrance at anytime. Walls were dirty, holes in wall and hole...

Had a nice room, but it faced the parking deck at the Hotel next door, but still could see the ocean, and the price was right. When I asked the Desk Clerk at 8 AM if he could have his staff clean my room first he said OK, but it was not done until 3 PM, so rather than enjoy...

I've visited over 60 countries around the world. This is the worst hotel I've ever stayed in. $300 for a night here. Absolute rip off! Top floor has been renovated, so you can bet that any positive reviews are from guests that stayed there. Our room was filthy, faced the car park (Gulf view - changed to 'partial' on arrival)...

Every room on the property has been renovated. The hotel is situated such that, there is a parking lot on site. As viewed from the balcony, looking straight down, yes, one will see a parking lot. However, upon entering the room, and looking out through the balcony sliding doors there is a view of the Gulf. We do acknowledge loud...

We booked this property during high school spring break. I will give you the pros and the cons...... Pros: The location is good. There is mini golf, shopping and a cute market right across the street. The hotel is right on a little beach; you are able to parasail and rent jet skis right on property. The rooms have been...

I was a little nervous about this hotel based on some of the reviews but I was pleasantly surprised! The staff was very friendly upon check in and check out. We had a room with gulf view that was awesome! We took advantage of the hotel's beach area which was great. I would definitely stay here again. You cannot go...

After reading the reviews I was worried. Nonsense! Maybe it used to be outdated, but not anymore. This place is incredibly nice and newly renovated. It's clean, new furniture, new carpet and bedding. Private swimming beach is small, but perfect if you want privacy. The view is beautiful. Live music next door every night that you can watch from the...

Great location on the beach, walking distance to downtown, can rent jet skies, paddle boats right there, the Parasail guys pick you up right on the beach. Saw dolphins every morning. great price for Clearwater. Private balconies.
