“Never would have guessed it would be good!”
Reviewed 3 March 2014

My boyfriend and I, along with 3 other couples needed to make last minute plans to stay on the beach. We wanted to be within walking distance to the event we were attending. The Sta'n Pla Motel was our only option and what a surprise it ending up being. We got a suite with full kitchen for under $150. It was clean and quaint. The pool was heated and the German motel manager was extremely friendly, laid back and helpful. It's just a block from the beach, local restaurants, a 7-Eleven and much more. Its definitely not your high end fancy hotel but it was comfortable and convenient. I definitely recommend it for a short stay if you don't mind something beachy and not over the top. A fun time was had by all!

The price was definitely right. The room was comfortable and the staff was friendly and helpful. The pool was awesome. Very close, within walking distance, to all the fun stuff "downtown" Clearwater Beach. I will be back again.

Room Tip: For a little more than $100 you can get a very large room with a nearly full kitchen. If you are bas...

Good: We had a large room in the northern building (room 102) with a view of the bay. It had a kitchenette. Two comfortable queen-sized beds, and good parking. It's a few minutes from a lovely white sand beach, on a quiet street. It was quiet on every level.

Bad: dirty old carpet, not very secure doors, a water heater that must have been far far away, no bedside table, clock or radio, ancient tv, crummy soap and toiletries, dim light bulbs, mildew in the bath, unmatched and poor-quality kitchen utensils (ONE wine glass!?) a narrow space to walk behind a bed to get to the bathroom, a dated bathroom, certainly not at all renovated yet, just generally tired. Ulli the manager was helpful when we asked for more towels and even fixed the doors, at least made the locks a bit better, although the doors did not close tightly. At $150 a night it seemed overpriced, but I suspect with some advanced planning and negotiating the price could have been considerably reduced. I'd come again at a lower price and/or a refurbished room.

We arrived at Clearwater beach with no booking, place was manic with a big football game in Tampa on Sunday. The first 6 main hotels we visited were all full so we decided to try motels.
Sta n pla does exactly what it says on the tin and delivered a clean comfy room with a nice pool and view over the marina. Manager couldn't have been more helpful.
Bargain as well at less than £100 for all four of us. We would have spent three times that at one of the main hotels as they had all put their prices up!

You can't go wrong with this place. My wife and I stayed there and it was perfect for needs. This is a motel so you get a motel. But it has been completely refurbished and the bed is great and the room is clean and comfortable.

Stayed at this motel for two nights and loved it. It is a well maintained, well operated flashback into the olden days of Clearwater Beach mom and pop motels. It didnt have the newest furniture, or flat screen tv, but it was very clean and everything was in working order. Wi-fi free and available near the pool area. The beach is only 2 blocks away. On site parking is free. If you are looking for something cozy, laid-back and different, then this is your place

Room Tip: Rooms closer to the office have stronger wi-fi.

Having just come from the hard rock hotel we were concerned before we arrived. BUT what a super little motel. Keith and all the other staff were so helpful, it was like a home from home. Basic but everything you need and if they don't have it in the room just ask. The pool was right outside the rooms so parents can chill while kids play. Everything in walking distance. Blissful week and the kids loved it.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 111. Room 105 just being renovated and would be ideal for a family
