“The Room was beautiful!!!”
Reviewed 16 April 2014

We loved the Sta N' Pla. Our room was immaculate, it was a full one bedroom apartment. There was a patio right off the water that was very private. Large kitchen for apartment, with new appliances and tile. Bathroom was also updated. Manager said it had been the owner's daughters apartment which may explain why it was so nice. Great location, just a couple blocks away from the beach while still secluded from the main road.

Room Tip: Try to request owner's daughters apartment, possibly room 32.

My sisters, friend and I stayed here for nine nights. We were very pleased with the property. It was clean and well maintained. Keith spends long hours making sure things are well cared for, plus he is very friendly with the guests. He went out of his way, making sure the guest had a comfortable welcoming stay. Although the beach is just two blocks away, we spent a lot of time around the beautiful pool. I would definitely stay here again.

I stayed at this hotel during my visit in Clearwater Beach and the staff went out of their way to provide us with first class service. I had also left an item of value by mistake, called the hotel, and they offered to mail it back to me. I thought I would never see this item again and I was so relieved the staff had so much integrity and honesty to return the item. If you're looking for a great hotel around the heart of Clearwater beach, the Sta and Pla is absolutely the place

This past week we returned home from 10 day at the Sta n Pla II...what a wonderful time we had in Clearwater! Our stay was made more enjoyable by the friendly staff at our motel but also at Amber Tides and Sta n Pla I!

Keith was amazing..spending time with us, suggesting places to go, keeping us in clean towels, etc. He should be employee of the year. We travel quite extensively and we were not sure what we were going to find in Clearwater and we found Keith, Ulli, Joe and Michele...BEST PLACE TO STAY, clean and comfortable rooms and great staff all around! See you all soon! THANK YOU!

Room Tip: Beds are great and comfortable, bathrooms are clean and 1950's style! We had the corner with ki...

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.
