Hotel is very conveniently located, close to restaurants and shops. Has a private beach and pool. We had a wonderful view from our room and enjoyed the music that played until 7pm. More importantly the staff were amazing! Would return to this hotel
Booked Solid, Kayak Sold A Booked Hotel
Wish l could have stayed here. Kayak sold a room that was not available.
Not a great experience
It was an older hotel but the staff was friendly and the room was very clean . Beach area small but nice and clean. Very nice beach staff.
My flight was canceled the day I was supposed to arrive so I didn't arrive till noon the next day. They would not credit me for the day I did not use. My balcony faced a construction site with such horrible noise that started at 6 AM . The disclaimer said it would just be a minor disturbance - definitely not minor! After that I requested the first night refunded again since I did not stay there. The gentleman at the desk was very nice but was not the manager .The manager did not even have the courtesy to come out and face us but in the end did credit me the one night. The pads on the chairs by the pool were very old and dirty.
Great location with easy access to beach and pool. Within walking distance to main stores and restaurants.
Construction was crazy around us and parking was not very convenient but great besides that.
What I can say is that the staff really went out of their way to make sure everything went well for us.
Someone spilled coffee on the back of my car. This was only realized after the valet brought it to us upon check out.
We did not stay there because of existing construc
Having to valet park 2 blocks away
Nothing Fancy but an Excellent Value for Beachfron
My family and I have been staying on the Clearwater Beach strip for over 15 years. This was the sixth hotel we have tried in this area, and I'm glad we did. The hotel was very well situated with an adjacent private beach and an adjoining IHOP that made our 3 day stay very convenient. The rooms are clean, and the beds are comfortable. I am prone to developing lower back pain when sleeping on poor mattresses, but had no problems with these beds. This is a no frills hotel, so if you are looking for modern decor or marble bathrooms you best look elsewhere; however, if you are looking for a reasonably priced beachfront hotel then look no further.
The adjacent construction was noisy. Further, since the adjacent hotel is going up on what used to be this hotel's parking lot, all cars were parked offsite by hotel valets. The problem with this arrangement is that a $15 per day valet fee was charged to cover the costs, which diminished some of the value of staying here. Further, it was not uncommon to wait over 20 minutes to get your car after making the request. To be fair, the front desk does instruct you to reserve your car at least 10 minutes in advance to avoid the wait, but on particularly busy nights, even with a reservation I was forced to wait over 20 minutes as my car was "blocked in by another car." Finally, the hotel has a beach bar that is visited by many locals that pull up in their boats or jet-skis. Many of these vessels are anchored in shallow waters, which reduces the overall bathing space.
Great location, some rough spots
Good, friendly staff, clean room, refrigerator, nice beach, nice pool
Valet parking required. Staff will get something from car for you, but no easy access to your car. Construction on both sides. If going out for the day, not an issue.
The staff had a professionalism about them, but also maintained an amazing sense of humor. The stay was everything we could ask for. Jordan at the front desk was very sweet and Kyle, who helped with our bags and valet, was also very attentive. We would definitely recommend and will be going back.
The location, pool, and secluded beach were very nice. The staff were fantastic!
There was construction on both sides of the hotel. Each morning I awoke at 7AM to hammering. The AC didn't work in my room. There are no snack machines in the entire place only 1 coke machine. It needs a major facelift.
It was an all right stay. The staff was friendly. The location was al right. The beach area was small.
What I Expected
The receptionist was very friendly. The rooms were nice and comfortable. I was traveling with my parents and four children. We had two rooms, and we were pleased with both rooms. My parents room had an ocean view, which my mother absolutely loved. The hotel is close to the beach allowing the kids to take a walk on the beach the evening we were there and collect shells.
Upon arriving at the hotel you pull up to the front door where a valet takes your vehicle. The area out front was small which made me clostrophobic (I hate driving in tight spaces). If more than one family was there, loading or unloading in their vehicle, it became cramped.
good service at the front desk. Kristine was excellent.
The room was very nice and the workers were curtious and kind.. the pool was good size..and what a great spot at the beach..
that there isnt a continental breakfast just because they have a resturant.. the hall way to room smelt like smoke in the smoke free rooms.. and the edges of the pool were very dirty,,,
Great staff who couldn't be more welcoming or helpful. Huge room.
Carpets throughout look tired
Room was clean, staff helpful, good location
One of the best hotels I have stayed in. So friendly, so clean. Top quality for a beach hotel. We had a complete chill out. Worth every penny
Could not fault anything.
