Very clean and staff is very friendly! Price was great. We would definitely stay there again when we are in the area. It is conveniently located near many restaurants. We were stay there to go to derby downs which was only @ 10 minutes away.

I had to stay here one night for work and will gladly stay there again in the future. I've not always had good luck with hotels in Clearwater so this was a win! Rooms are comfy and staff was friendly and accommodating.

I have stayed here a few times for work and I wish I could give five stars just for the staff. They are always friendly and welcoming. They always have a smile on their face and that's worth a lot these days. The rooms have me at odds. Out of the four times I have stayed here, it's been a...

While the desk staff was attentive and I was able to check in without too much hassle - eventually, after a 30 minute wait while they finished cleaning the room (at around 2:30PM) - I found that the hotel is in great need of refurbishment... Simply put; it is old.... The mattresses are broken down and the room furniture is...

Reserved a room at this hotel for a vacation for a week. Upon arrival I noticed how "trashy" the outside looked and what looked like homeless people hanging around out front.

It is important to know that this is more of an extended stay type hotel/motel, than a short stay place. With that being said, it is great value for the money and much nicer than other extended stay hotel/motels in the area. They will clean your room once a week, but provide fresh linens whenever asked (just bring dirty ones...
