Frenchy's Oasis Motel
Ranked #4 of 98 Hotels in Clearwater
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 3 January 2014

I am always skeptical when booking a motel for our vacation sight unseen, but we hit the jackpot on this one. Outstanding customer service (you totally rock, LeAnn!), clean rooms, picturesque view on the inter coastal, tucked away location close enough to walk to shops, restaurants and beach, all at a fair price. Ya gotta love this place! There is a fish house next door where we actually watched the boats come in from our terrace, saw them unload their catch, and ordered it filet'ed before our eyes prior to purchasing it at a discounted price just for staying at Frenchy's. We prepared 5 pounds of gulf shrimp in our kitchenette room, but you can also use the grill on the grounds. Used the discount breakfast coupon to eat at Clear View - the tastiest meal we had while there - and owned by Frenchy. We Loved Frenchy's and will definitely be back!!!

Frenchy's Oasis is a gem in Clearwater Beach, Fl. You can't beat the location right on the Intercoastal and only 2 blocks from the gulf. The beach is beautiful and you can walk for miles. When you stay here you get discount coupons at all of Frenchy's resturants that are all within walking distance of the hotel. We took our bikes and were able to connect easily to the Pinellas county bike path that you can take all the way to St. Petersburg to the south and Tarpon Springs to the north. If you want quiet and relaxing this is the place to be.

Room Tip: Not a bad room in the place.

OK - Frenchy's is not a resort hotel. But has a LOT going for it - It's on the intercoastal waterway; It's close to but off the main drag; It's within walking distance of lots of attractions; It is newly remodeled in cool mid 20th century Florida kitsch;| It's clean, clean, clean; Staff are fun and accommodating; It has a nice (also clean) little pool; It's very reasonably priced; Parking comes with the room AND you get some discounts at the owner's local restaurants. I think it's a smokin' deal!

Room Tip: Rooms facing the water are great, although those with kids may want one on the pool side. Read their...

Don't be fooled by the inexpensive rates and 60's architecture. This place is a gem. Sure, it's hyper-clean, well located, friendly--yada, yada, yada. Read the other reviews--they're right. But what's not mentioned is the attention to detail. The soap and shampoo (worthy of Four Seasons), whimsical paintings on the terrazzo flooring, BIG TVs with a large lending library of movie DVDs. Chocolates, popcorn, coffee, bottled water waiting for you, gratis. Lounge chairs on the dock on which to read, watch the fishing boats dock and unload; pelicans floating in ranks waiting for their fishy scraps. This is Florida at its best.
Same goes for the half-dozen Frenchy's eateries. Always packed--with good reason.

Just returned from our third annual trip to Frenchy's Oasis Motel. Hard to describe how wonderful this place is. Immaculate, friendly staff, great location. Don't miss Frenchy's restaurants. Each one has a different menu and good music. Hard to say which restaurant is our favorite, but the patio at Frenchy's Clear Sky is hard to beat for breakfast.

For 30 years we have enjoyed the great food at all 4 of the Frenchy's locations on the Beach. Going by boat makes it a great experience with family & friends from out of town. Recently had the opportunity to attend a wedding on Clearwater Beach and went by boat spending two nights @ the Oasis Motel. Great friendly staff (manager Leann) with clean updated rooms and a safe & secure floating dock to keep our boat for the two night visit from Tarpon Springs. Linda and the dock staff are all great and everyone needs to see Linda help tie up your boat! Motel was a great location and suggested that we use the free golf cart transport system to attend the wedding. (Tipping is allowed). We will be back by boat again for more stays @ the Oasis Motel to relax and enjoy the current location with visits to all the restaurant locations.

Starting with Frenchy's Oasis Motel, our visit to Clearwater was an awesome experience. The Oasis is clean, colorful, and comfortable, and is in the best possible location. You are on the water, but within walking distance of the shopping area and the beach, including several of Frenchy's restaurants and gift shop. The staff at the Oasis was friendly, helpful, and available when you need them. The rooms are exceptionally clean and tastefully decorated, including even a full-sized refrigerator. Each room has a small veranda right on the water, with a close-up view of the marina. We will definitely be visiting the Oasis again! For GREAT food - get to each of Frenchy's restaurants in Clearwater, plus the Outpost on the Causeway in Dunedin. The Rockaway Grill is the best place to view the beach and the Gulf, and the She-Crab Soup and the various Flounder sandwiches can't be beat! Wow! You can't go wrong with Frenchy's!
