Stayed here one night for work. I was literally in and out so I can't comment on any amenities. My room was in building #9 on the fist floor. It smelled like a wet basement - musty and old. The furniture was dated and it had carpet in the bathroom. All in all - it made me not want to...

The hotel itself was nice lots of room, was very clean, the weather when we was there wasn't very good so we only got one good day at the ocean, so we tried to make the most out of our short stay. When I booked this room I didn't know the beach was going to be 20 minutes away from...

I've been a Marriott Rewards member for 15 years I do not recall this ever happening to me. I was traveling with my family from over a thousand miles away. On the flight right before coming they said that someone else extended their stay and they basically cancelled our reservation and asked us to go to another hotel. They did...

We stayed in this hotel for 2 nights for our first trip to Clearwater, Florida. Our room was on the main floor which was convenient to avoid us climbing the stairs for the room on the second floor. The hotel is like a motel equipped with rooms either on the main floor or the second floor. Although the room gives...

We were hoping to find a place on the beach for our winter get away but were priced out. We chose the Residence Inn because of the price and accommodations. Although this hotel was 15 minutes from the closest beach, we were extemely satisfied. There is an all purpose court, pool and fire-pit which were manicured beautifully that gave my...

Stayed here 2 years ago and it was $110 for one night. Stayed here last week and it was $181.93 for one night. Plus the drapes had stains on them, there was a large stain on the carpet and you almost had to walk thru a bush to get to the room door as it really needed to be trimmed..They...

I have stayed here multiple times. I visit the Honeywell location near here on business. It is also very close to the Pinellas County Sheriffs office, the Juvenile Center and a number of Bail Bondsmen businesses. This is not too far from a number of restaurants and is right on Ulmerton which is a straight shot onto I-275 to head...
