To be honest for a Motel it is clean. The location is perfect as you are right on the beach and there is a great seafood restaurant "Crabby Bill" accross the street also there is a CVS walking distance. Unfortunately, we had some what discrepancies with what I had booked on Expedia. As expedia website said I had pay all...

Maybe somebody working for the place read all the bad reviews, and the place cleaned up its act... ....but we had a wonderful time. Sure, it's old, it's funky, it's outdated, and very much in need of an upgrade/remodel. But it follows the First and Most Important Rule of Beach Resorts: The older the place, the better the location, as...

This place is SO NOT Acceptable to stay at as it is NASTY/FILTHY! I went across the street to CVS Pharmacy and when they saw all the Deoderizers I bought they told me EXACTLY were I was staying! GROSS

Don't go! We got there and within 10 mins cancelled our reservation, Dirty , smelled like an ashtray . Looked at two rooms . One hadn't even been cleaned . There isn't any redeeming qualities except location . It's on the beautiful Clearwater beach . Go somewhere else !

This place was completely dated, not in a good way. The door lock was literally a key and you had to play with it to get it open which cause ls a really bad issue at 2am New Year's Eve with no one at the front desk. Took about 15 min to get it open. We ordered a ocean view...

For the price, the room was awesome. Lots of space, especially if you are traveling with a family. In desperate need of some updating. Extremely dated, and not in a good way. I agree with some of the other comments about the carpet, I didn't feel like it was very clean. Ceiling fan over the bed could not be turned...

OMG what can I say. If you are looking for a beach front, dated, old, tired and grim looking then look no further. We have stayed here twice, only because of the location nothing more. We paid $120.00 for 1 night and it is truly Fawlty Towers not Gulf Towers. I would wear shoes in the rooms or flip flops...

I can get by with not having the best of the best, but these rooms need some love The door to the balcony wouldn't open and the a/c while it made noise, didn't cool at all The bed was comfortable and the sheets were clean, but not my favorite

Located on the beach so that's great and if you like live music in the evenings Krabby Bills is across the street and a fun place to hang out. Here's the rub it's a little run down with old carpet that has a bit of an odor. The kitchenette seems a little unsafe. But if you're willing to tolerate less...

The place is rundown but for some reason, I really enjoyed it. Perhaps I was because we practically had the beach to ourselves..an incredible restaurant across the street that we could walk to...it was reasonably priced ....and it wasn't touristy.
