We stayed here as a family of 4 with 2 young children for one night. We were greeted warmly and although we had to wait for our room as we were a bit early, we were directed to the pool where we had a swim. The 2 bed accommodation was very spacious and clean. Our only criticism was that the...

Theo and his team were great and hospitable; we checked in for one night, stayed two since it as clear that Theo and the team were committed to making a stay easy and welcoming. Theo left a fishing rod, borrowed from his buddy and 'hot fishing location' too..what more can a transient Brit guest want ? His recommendation of Clearsky...

My honey brought me here for my birthday. What an amazing time we had. The hotel is older but well kept. Very homey comfortable atmosphere. The staff was so friendly and accommodating. We were within walking distance to the beach and all the fun places along the beach to eat, drink and enjoy the beautiful sunsets. We will definitely be...

My husband and I visited Clearwater Beach for a quiet little getaway. We arrived on Thursday morning at 9:30. We were scheduled for a dolphin tour at 11:30 and was hoping it was OK to park and walk to the marina. They were more than nice about it. Checked us right in. All we had to do was come back...

Very much enjoyed our stay here. Direct access to the beach which is right across the street. This is the quiet end of the barrier island, with the residential homes adjacent to the motel block. Previous reviews mention noise from construction. We did not experience any such noise. The motel itself appears to have been built in the 1950s, based...

The hotel is perfectly located a short stroll from the beach and walk to the main bars and restaurants. The hotel staff are a real asset - all extremely welcoming and helpful. We enjoyed the pool and sun loungers too. The only downfall here was the room we stayed in (queen - hotel style). It was incredibly small and out...

If you like a holiday in a little box in among lots of other little boxes in large chain hotel group, this place may not be for you. If, however, you love the way some parts of Clearwater Beach was, before they sent the bulldozers in and "modernised" the place, this could be the place for you. We had a...

What a great vacation!! The staff are incredibly friendly and helpful. The resort offered everything for fun and relaxation. The deluxe King one bedroom was as described. My only complaint was the uncomfortable pull out sofa. We will go back for sure.

Clean room and very friendly staff. If you enjoy being a little way from the strip but within walking distance to it this is a great place. The only problem was the bathroom was small. Overall a nice place to stay.
