It's a nice hotel next to the bay. Unfortunately, I was put in a room that smelled musty and terrible. I opened the windows to try and air it out which helped. Then, that night I got into the king size bed and I couldn't believe it… It was 2 twin beds pushed together with a king size sheet pulled...

We have been going to the Sea Captain for years and recently it was bought out by the management of the bigger hotel behind it. The pool now closes with a deadbolt lock at 9pm, all guests are harassed about parking and strictly managed to 1 vehicle per room, no more continental breakfast served on holidays, rude employees working in...

Booked a stay at the Sea Captain for my anniversary and wife's birthday. Been several years since I stayed on Clearwater Beach. Had this hotel recommended to me by a friend. Had a nice King Efficiency room on the bay. This hotel is an old florida style hotel that is two story with only 28 rooms. I really enjoyed this...

This resort was clean but outdated. The pool closes at 9 which really stinks when your on vacation. The reason I gave it 2 stars was the fact that at midnight when I was trying to go asleep there were people being extremely loud. They were out by the pool partying. I don't mind someone having a good time but...

It is the perfect getaway. A very family friendly hotel located right on the marina! The staff and housekeeping is very welcoming and went out of their way to help my husband and i with anything and everything we needed. Great getaway for all ages, we will definitely be coming back :)

I just returned from a little mini vacation at the Sea Captain Resort. The rooms are a little out dated, but that's what gives this hotel it's charm. My fridge and stove stopped working the day after I checked in, I notified the front desk and they had maintenance to my room within the hour. The staff also came around...

Great small hotel overlooking the marina on Clearwater Beach... The rooms are spotless and the location in perfect, close to restaurants , boat tours and the beach. It's right next door to Jimmys Crows Nest which has the best sunsets on the beach!Highly recommend it!

If you have stayed here many years like most of us it is time to move on. No more nice cups in the rooms. All of the staff have been replaced. No umbrellas at the pool. And no matter what the management replying to this review, still no heat in the pool. Really! Nice warm day and the pool is...

My fiancé and I stayed at the Sea Captain resort from march 11-15th 2016. We were pleasantly surprised with our nice efficiency suite with a beautiful view of the bay. The heated pool and the jacuzzi were both nice, and a good way to have a relaxing evening. Since it is a small place I never felt overcrowded/lack of privacy/...
