This hotel has a great location easy access to shopping, airport, restaurants, and the beaches of Clearwater. The breakfast was good for our needs and was nice to look over the bay while eating.

Agree with recent reviews, the hotel was convenient to the airport, breakfast was better then most. There was no problem with convenient parking.

This was the only hotel in the area that offered a decent park and fly rate. Very friendly staff,, decent room with a view of the bay, furnishings were dated but everything was clean, comfortable and worked. Free breakfast was better than most.
