We were looking for a nice motel within walking distance to Clearwater Beach and were not looking to get caught up with the Spring Break crowd. We found this one and were not disappointed (especially when some kids were asked to leave after making too much noise).
The owner, Robert, was kind and gave us all the information we needed to know about the local area, while he also let us use his personal film library for the duration of our stay.
The room was clean, despite not having a maid service, and if you are clean people then you will be able to live as we did for at least 10 days. Kitchen utensils and cutlery, etc were all provided with clean towels upon request, and if you are looking for a self-sufficient kind of place with a pool to relax around then you won't find much better.
A few things kept this from being an ''Excellent'' motel. Small things like the TV remote not working, the internet disconnecting randomly and the loud noise of the fridge expanding every few hours thought the night, but overall this was exactly the kind of place we were looking for.
If you want somewhere close to the beach with comfortable, affordable living quarters that aren't in the lap of luxury, this is a hidden gem.
