“Great location and an excellent value”

My wife and I stayed 17 nights at the Travelodge Clearwater Beach and were not disappointed. Our first time vacationing on this coast and wanted a place on the beach that we could roam around between Tarpon Springs and St. Petes and this was a good base.
When I first contacted Kathy she said she could arrange something for that time frame and a few days later she came up with a room which was perfect for us. You must know we don't like the high rise hotels but prefer the earlier style of 4 or 5 stories. The room had an excellent view of the beach and if you didn't want to go to the pier for the sunset it was just as beautiful from the balcony.
The staff were very helpful and answered any questions we had on the area. The cleaning staff did an excellent job on the room and although we didn't utilize the pool/sundeck area it always looked pristine and in a good hot area. The little kitchenette was great if we wanted breakfast in or a sandwich before heading out in the afternoon. For us the location was good for different beach locations, baseball and golf not to mention visiting friends vacationing in a few different areas north and south of Clearwater.
We had one little bump with parking but I guess that was a senior's moment and lessen learned.
The room itself was very quiet considering it was on the 3rd floor front of the building where you will get some loud bike noise but not much throughout the night.
All in all I would certainly stay here again and would recommend the hotel, for the purpose we looked for it suited us fine but as I said earlier this is the style of hotel we search for. We are not party animals but like to experience what the area has to offer.
I would like to thank Kathy and her staff for making our stay as comfortable as possible, this will be our choice the next time we are in Clearwater.

Room Tip: room 307 has an excellent view and having the fire lane between the hotel and street, it was not ver...

Short version: not the most up-to-date or grandest of hotels, but clean, priced right, and great location.
Long version: we were only here for one night (quick stop in Clearwater Beach) so we didn't want to spend too much on a room. Due to the reviews, i booked this hotel. They are all right. It's not the grandest of hotels, but the room was clean. The shower was hot. The bed was comfortable. There was a microwave and fridge. The location was great (walked to Pier 60, McDonald's right next door, beach across the walkway). Took the hint of asking for a 4th floor pool-view room - we had a beach view from our front window. The "hallway" to each room is an open balcony that you can see the beach from (see my picture) and the front window of the room has that view.
and also, i can't remember the name of the gentleman that checked us in (Jeff?) but he made us feel very welcome.
all in all, if your looking to not spend much $$ or much time in the room, but want the location and beach (view) this is a great place to stay.

There are only a few hotels, within reasonable rates, that have this great location on Clearwater Beach. You can literally walk across the street and you're on the white, sandy beach. Whether you like to watch people or the incredible ocean sunset out your window, this Travelodge is a great stay. Frenchy's, a popular seafood cafe/bar, is two doors down which is typically full in the evenings.

Kathy, the General Manager, was helpful and very responsive from the point of making reservations, to making special requests and checking in. She'll be very honest with you in person and with email responses, of which she is extremely responsive. How often do you have the GM of a hotel personally respond to your emails! That's great customer service.

As for the accommodations, sure they are a little dated but very clean. Hot water went in and out from hot to warm, but not cold. Beds were comfortable and the AC worked extremely well, although the breeze in the evenings didn't require the AC on most nights (March). Nice to have a small kitchenette with small fridge in the room.

Pool area and outside common area is slightly dated, but well maintained and clean.

Drive time to and from the Tampa airport can be about 30-35 minutes, so don't expect a quick trip. Expect even longer on Saturday/Sundays.

Room Tip: Ask for an ocean patio view. Can't go wrong with that view.

Two dudes on a golf vacation couldn't ask for any more. Location is perfect for walking to the many local hangouts. Kathy and her staff are amazingly helpful and will do what it takes to make your stay enjoyable. The property is older but the rooms are spacious and kept clean. If you don't realize that going in then shame on you. For the price at this location it is a steal! Better stock up on the Red Solo Cups cuz you have earned our business for years to come. Thanks again!

We booked this room due to the good reviews on TripAdvisor. Great location! We arrived early and our room was ready, Kathy at the desk was very helpful! For the cheaper rate we didn't have much of a view but we didn't care. The area is beautiful and I hope we can go back soon.

Our family of four stayed here two nights after escaping Disney. Location is great but the room seemed a little ragged and worn. Bathroom was very cramped. It kind of reminded me of Motel 6 when I was anticipating something closer to Holiday Inn Express. I had hoped for better for the price but I am learning to adjust my expectations accept paying a little more.

Hi- Thank you for taking the time for our review. I am sorry you did not have a nicer experience after leaving Disney, you really needed a place to relax and Clearwater Beach is the best. I do not know what room type you reserved, but we do have larger rooms. Maybe on your next visit you call me and let us try to make your visit better. Take care.................
