“Really Good and amazing Sunset”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 February 2012

I've been in January 2011 in this hotel and we had 1 night booked....as we arrived there we immediately decidet to book 1 night more and so we did. We had a Room on the last floor and an amazing view.
Next to the hotel there is a pub....go eat there...it's really good food and you don't pay much as you would in other restaurant.
The stuff at the hotel were really friendly and helped us in every wish we had.
The room we had was big and we even had a little kitchen and a big balcony with a perfect view!

I love the friendly and informative staff. Any and all questions I had were quickly answered. Everyone seemed very eager to help anyway they could. And the view from our balcony was unforgettable. I have some of the best pictures of sunsets and could watch dolphins from balcony in morning and late evening. The beach was just a few steps across (I hate to call it a street) more like a walkway. Several restaurants within small walking distance. And Pier 60 was also just a walk away. WOW!!! I could go on and on. Only a couple of downsides.... No washer and dryer. Not a good wifi signal, but this they were working on the week we stayed. And rooms were slightly older BUT ABSOLUTELY Clean. And a shout out to the lady working breakfast and also to our housekeeper Maria!!! Keep up the Great work for this place!

Room Tip: Rooms on Gulf side with balconies....A MUST. Bayside rooms were not nearly as good or in good condit...

Our family of 5 (ranging in age from 6-65) really enjoyed our stay here. The beach is an easy and safe walk across an unbusy street. The staff is friendly and VERY helpful. The rooms were nice and included a fridge so that we could keep cold drinks. And you are within a block or so of decent shopping and family-friendly restaurants. The only reason I did not rank this a five is that the "heated" pool was a little chilly and the breakfast, which was decent, could only be eaten in the breakfast area and not taken to our room to eat on our balcony while looking at the beach. However, there is a McDonalds next door and you can pick up breakfast there and eat on your balcony.

Room Tip: Make certain you get a room overlooking the beach.

I love this hotel! This is family owned. We recently stayed here. Even though the gulf temp was chilly we still enjoyed ourselves. You can walk right across the street to the beach. We stayed on the fifth floor. The view was amazing from our window. One side is the bay, the other is the gulf. The staff is very friendly and helpful. It is the off season. We were the only ones staying there and they treated us wonderful!

Room Tip: We had a king suite complete with fridge, stove, microwave and couch. 105 total! The hotel might not...

I was attending a conferance at the Hilton (about 10 minute walk) and found this place for over twenty dollars less then the conferance rate and had a beutiful view of the ocean and sunsets. My colegues staying at the Hilton had views of the parking lot. The room was a bit run down but clean, and the kitchenette was stocked with plenty of coffee. No internet access. Don't sign up for the wi-fi service, you may have a good signal for a while, but it won't last. The restaurants next door (Crabby Bills and Frenchy's) were quite good.

Room Tip: All rooms overlook the beach and ocean. Fifth floor (top), north end probably have a better view. Th...

Spring Break 2011 (Mar20-26)

Given the rates, we got what we paid for. The rooms are indeed dated, the carpet horrifically stained (we did not take our shoes off), and the quality of amenities lacking BUT, the views were priceless, our sheets were clean, and the towels -- despite their small size and limited number -- were noticeably soft.

Specifics: WiFi is a joke, sporadic at best (If you must stay connected, bring an air card); Continental "breakfast" consists of coffee (packet cream & sugar only), most everything is pre-wrapped vending quality, and oranges. There is no juice, yogurt or other [fresh] fruit available. Our “equipped” efficiency was not, having only styro coffee cups, one pot, and a toaster; no cooking utensils, incomplete dishes & silverware – not certain how other rooms compared. Water was hot, pressure was good, grout in the shower was total mold – not surprising in such an old building – but gross nonetheless. Lack of screens on windows and doors.
While the pool was out of commission for 3 days of our stay, we felt it was beyond management’s control with a facility of this age; they were apologetic and did work to rectify it quickly. But hey, the BEACH was right across the street!

NOTE: Spring break lasts 6 wks in Florida, due to college schedules & should be taken into account whenever reserving beachfront properties, since management cannot control street noise. They do not tolerate out of control guests and, there were several removed during our stay. Busy time for Clearwater police, to say the least!

A veranda overlooking the Gulf of Mexico, right across the street from the beach, plus a junior suite with a kitchenette -- all for under $100! Not luxury accommodations, but definitely doable, and a terrific deal. Room was clean; only thing questionable was the carpet. Staff were very helpful. Right next door is a surf shop with groceries in the back; restaurants and a McDonalds for morning coffee were a few steps away. Anyplace else, you'd pay a lot more for a guaranteed view of the Gulf. Good experience!

Room Tip: Ask for a suite; it's only marginally more expensive.
