“The best hotel on the beach, with excellent service, exceptionally clean, & a great staff!!”
Reviewed 24 June 2010

We not only got married at this hotel, but we had 25 other people stay as well. Their management was second to none. They ensured every thing, down to every last detail, was completed and we had absolutely no worries for our wedding. Their staff is very kind, and also very friendly and go our of their way to help in any way they can. They have remodeled and it is a very nice hotel. I have stayed at every hotel on Clearwater Beach, and this is by far my favorite. They not only have great prices, spacious rooms, and very clean, but they have a wonderful beach (which the kids loved), right out the back door, and it's private, along with a very nice pool. Our family and friends enjoyed our stay and again, I cannot praise this hotel enough; it is our new favorite hotel in Clearwater. The Krigbaums

The hotel was very nice and the weather was beautiful ...I've been down to Clearwater
several times and from a staff stand point the sercice was outstanding,,,from the
checkin people to the maids to the bartenders Vanisha and Mike ....I haven't laughed
that hard in a long time....You are the bomb....it was in the 90's and sunny and not
once did I see anyone with and attitude taking drinks down to the beach...Everyday
the manager who's name is Vanisha also asked us how we were doing...to Chris
thanks for getting my towel off the roof..We were there for a week and we felt so at
home......Can't wait to see you all in October.....For the price the staff and the private
beach it is most worth staying here which was our first time.....I hope that one customer
shows back up that talks and acts like Elvis and Forest Gump...He was a trip !!!!
Thanks guys for a fantastic time !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This is the quintessential beach hotel. It is a clean place to lay your head at night between beach visits. The hotel has its own beach and pool, but it is on the inlet and not the Atlantic. I already knew this before booking, so no disappointments there. It is a very walkable location. If you are military, the rates are really good.
The front desk staff was really nice. We arrived about 30 minutes early and they let us check in and our room was ready. The room cleaning service works ALL day. Our room did not see service until almost 4 p.m. It got done though. They offer free parking, free wifi, and a coupon for 10% off the restaurant in the hotel during your stay. It was a nice stay, and definitely looked a lot nicer than a lot of the other motels in the area.

The worst Memorial Day experience.. The hotel was not at all what we had anticipated. Upon check in, we had trouble with parking and it only got worse! The hallway to our room smelled like a rancide meat market.... The staff was unwilling to accomodate needs unless pestered. The wait staff on the beach were very nice to work with but the tab policy was akward due to all day long service and one trying to get you to close out early so they could collect the tip. We had our beach chair stolen from in front of our room door.. When we asked the maid staff and they indicated that they placed it in the maids closet but when they checked - they could not locate our chair - so someone from inside the hotel stole our really nice chair. The maid staff also took our pillow cases off of our home brought pillows - then claimed it would be terribly hard to locate cases. The TV in room was in terribly quality as the picture was blurred. We packed a cooler for the beach as we have small children and the staff made my husband take the cooler back to our room- However, several other people came marching down with huge coolers and no one said a word! Lastly, we had a very nasty boat owner who decided that they would anchor their boat on the shoreline of the private beach. Never mind our kids trying to play at the shore line. It took nearly 6 guests to complain before the hotel would do anything as they said there really was not much they could do. Meanwhile, I paid nearly 200 dollars a night to stay at their hotel on their private beach. Finally, when the manager came out - she offered the boaters free drink coupons as they claimed that we ( the guests) were rude to the boaters when we asked them to move their anchor. The boaters then proceeded to approach shore taunting the guests with the coupons and swaring at those who complained. We then went back in to complain ... It took the coast guard , police and water police to convice these boaters they needed to leave our area... I was so disenchanted by the whole experience that I - nor my extended family - who also stayed there with us - will ever be back!

We got a room with a scenic view of the beach. Wonderful service! The room was clean and nice. The elevator was doing a little nice which would make u a little nervous. The breakfast was ok, but since, the waitress was alone, she was struggling to serve everybody, so, we needed to stand up just to catch her attention. The pool was functioning. There was a free internet use. Over-all, it was a wonderful experience. I'd give it 8 out of 10.

The people at the front desk were accommodating Amy and Darin. The views were amazing on the 5th-6th floors and weather was great on the whole vacation. Compared to the other hotels nearby, this hotel had a private beach, kept clean every morning. The disadvantage was the lounge chairs were on a first come, first serve basis and you had to pay a resort fee $13/day. Also, the pool was in repair which was disappointing but the ocean water was a helpful substitute. There is a Tikibar and restaurant here but for fun nightlife in walking distance, there is Shepard's. There is a fitness center at the Sheraton over the bridge which is $10/day or $30/wk but they allowed me to workout for free on the first day when I told them I was from the best western. Restaurants and shopping in walking distance. I had a good deal with expedia and overall good vacation.

After several phone calls before our arrival to make sure we got the sixth floor, which we did, but we could have been told the pool was in repair. THERE WAS NO POOL!!!! These people could have told me on my many calls and could have helped us with other accomadations but did not! I am waiting for some kind of compensation, if I do get it will keep you posted. These people are extremely tough to work with! Not to mention the EXTREMELY slow food service. Oh and of course the restaurant closed early everyday because they had no customers. Just about everyone left and went elsewhere! But it was still slow! And the air conditioning was barely working....elevators....well, just hope you don't get stuck!
