“The rowing machine seem to have participated in the battle of Baghdad, but it all worked.”
Reviewed 20 May 2013

The hotel is from 1941. Parking is under the structure in this sun-filled climate. Nice!

Our room 220 was adjacent to the hotel entry on the second floor and was nice. It smelled nice too, while there was a faint odor of mildew in the elevator. There was a sideways view of the sea and the room was out of the morning sun.

Someone with too much weight in his hands had removed the handrail into the tub from its foundation, but it has been repaired. Maybe she should have skipped all the cookies for breakfast in the future?

The room is equipped with a CRT TV. It has to be switched on manually, but otherwise a remote does the zapping. There is plenty of floor space to move around, even for a traveler with many suitcases like us.

The beds were of course “heavenly” and the pillows were not of the “hard rubber type” found in other hotels. They were soft and tender.

There is a nice pool between the hotel and the highway to Clearwater Beach running along the beach. There are deck chairs, a table or two to have your lunch and even a chair for the handicapped to be winched into the pool.

The fitness room is next to the breakfast room and there is no blinds to the outside traffic. Neither is it access by room key only, as the door is unlocked. We turned off the lights to have more privacy. There were no water, nor wet swipes to clean the equipment. The rowing machine seem to have participated in the battle of Baghdad, but it all worked.

What is not nice about this hotel is the luggage carts. They have had their expected lifetime cycle and should be replaced. They are wobbly, the smallest we have seen under the Choice “umbrella” (47 hotels so far) and is a challenge to steer in the right direction. Seen a drunken driver with a DUI level of 3? Well that's me pushing the cart!

I was given a password for the Net, but coming form a similar hotel in Ft. Myers with the same layout, I did not have to use the password. I got however thrown out again and again and had to log on again and again. This is irritating and very different from Starbucks, Target stores and Staples. They recognize you as a former visiting customer all over the US. The Wi-Fi signal around the pool was poor.

The breakfast room was a bit like the musical chairs. You really had to run for a free table in the morning. People were eating all over the place, not only int the breakfast room but in the lobby and outside the hotel. There is free space just outside the breakfast room to move the wall. It would be the cheapest extension ever in a hotel and the guest would be more happy. That would be a win-win?

I stayed out on the Clearwater Beach back in 1989. Would i come back to this hotel? Probably not.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view over the bay.

Newly painted exterior and stone work being done. We had a end unit with a bay view. The room needs some work, carpet had rips in it, toilet runs for a while. décor a little out dated. We hope they update once outside is done. Good size pool and hot tub. Small area for breakfast, but okay. Just stay for one night, which was fine. If you need a room for 5 people, this will work.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a water view, room has two large windows

After 4 days in Disney Kissimmee Fl. We chose to relax for 3 days at Clearwater beach. This property was very good. It was a little intimidating driving to it because it looked to be in the outside of town. Ones we got in and settle in and drove around to site see we found the hotel to be in a great location in proximity of the beach and food. The rooms where clean and over all well-equipped with a fridg and microwave. There was a washer and dryer for guests which came in very handy after a day at the beach and clothes full of sand. We will be staying here again this year for sure.

Very clean and comfortable rooms and great access to nearby state and county parks, beaches, shopping and restaurants. All of the staff are friendly. Janice and Anna were especially helpful. Breakfast was a bonus and this property is pet friendly. Very nice pool area with an awesome view of the famous local sunsets. Would recommend this location to anyone traveling to the Clearwater area.

Room Tip: Many rooms have water view.

I took a group of students to Clearwater on a musical tour. The desk was ready of the group with the keys, room assignments, and helpful information about the area, tickets to attractions, etc. The bay-view hotel is not on the beach but VERY convienent with just a 5 minute drive. My overall rating for this motel is very high and i would never hesitate to go back. in fact, i can't wait til our next tour to the area so we can stay there again.

We have stayed at this facility for the past three years. We stay for 6 weeks during spring baseball season. Love the area and the sunsets are terrific. We walk to Dunedin (Pinellias Trail) for Blue Jay games and the shops in Dunedin. Anna K is a special employee. She goes out of her way to make your stay enjoyable. The breakfasts are outstanding; however, the room is small, so we take our food to the room and eat there. The place is undergoing total renovations, so next year should be an even better experience. There is covered parking, which is an added plus. The rooms are large and comfortable. Just a great place to spend the winter.
