“By far one of the best "BEST WESTERNS" I've visited”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 August 2010

We had gone to St.Pete and after only one night at the beach comber realized that it wasn't what is portrayed in the website and we left the next morning not know where we would end up next because we just drove down from NYC. we then decided to check Clearwater out, got on my blackberry and decided to take a look at the Sea Wake resort. We would have spent all our vacation time here had I know in advance about this hotel. the best of all is the Private beach which is the main reason we stayed here. traveling with kids I wanted peace of mind and I found it here. the price is not as cheap but this hotel is close to everything and within walking distance you find everything. next time we go to Florida this is a must.

I stayed at this hotel a couple of years ago with friends for a "girl's weekend away". We were
initially given a very small corner room which was too small to accommodate 3 people but the
management quickly and without hesitation moved us to a larger room with a balcony. When we realized that our hair dryer wasn't working the maintenance man happily replaced it
with a new one. We had so much fun on the beach and in the pool, sipping delicious drinks and enjoying wonderful lunches at the beach bar. The staff was also very gracious and friendly, suggesting hot spots that we might enjoy. We took this advice and had a terrific time each and every night during our stay.. We have anxiously awaited our return trip which
is coming up quickly on September 18. Can't wait to get back to Clearwater!! See you soon!!

This hotel was a great place to park the car, check in,and not get in it again until we left. The beach area was small but clean, the chairs and umbrellas were great ($25.00 rental for two chairs and one umbrella), and the wait staff was attentive. This is not directly on the beach but more on the intercoastal connected to the beach. That being said it was clean, relaxing, convenient, and a fun way to spend the day with a group of chilled out friends.

I was impressed at first when I callsedl Sea Wake to inquire if we could get an early check-in and they eagerally agreed! Howver, after that point, the property itself was disappointing.
The bathtub drain was plugged, so when showering I was standing in 3-4 inches of water. The toliet flush would wake the dead! The curtain rod was hanging off of the ceiling, so not operating. The glass sliding door was rusty and gross. The lamp between the beds only had one half of the plug, therefore didn't operate in the plug. After calling for maintenance, the plug was simply plugged in the outlet, but still didn't work, they did nothing in the bathtub, they adjusted the rod on the ceilng, but still didn't work.

My girlfriend and I decide to spend the weekend in Clearwaer Beach at the Best Western after our friends highly reccomeneded the hotel. We were so happy we listened to their suggestion.... From the minute we entered the hotel we were greeted by the front desk lady and checked in very fast. We were so hungry so we went down to the tikki bar area and got lunch.. The food was excellent and great pricing! The beach was very private and clean.... Not too mention the cool loungers they have.... This is a must stay in Clearwater Beach!

My husband and I were celebrating our two year anniversary and decided that clearwater beach would be nice. We are from N Florida and usually go to St Augustine. We reserved a beach front room with balcony. The room was perfect. We had a fantastic view of the private beach. Their private beach was perfect. Our 16old month son came down the second day and he played all day. The nicest thing about the private beach is that it is not crowded at all. They have lounge seats with umbrellas you can rent for $25/day or 10/hr. I don't think the price is bad at all and we were on a budget.Everything is within walking distance. We never had a problem getting beach towels and all the staff was extremely friendly. The bar outside could use a live band, but the bartender said that they are trying to work on that. I would have never left if it had. The drink prices aren't too bad, you are on the beach so anything is going to be pretty pricey but I have experienced worse. There was a group of dolphins swimming just beyond the shore line. The hotel is nice and secluded in a way since it is at the end right by the bridge so you don't have tons of people trampling through. Overall, I HIGHLY rate this hotel and plan on staying at this place anytime we head down South.
