“Home away from home”
Reviewed 27 March 2012

Have stayed here on my last four trips to Clearwater and six of my last seven. Have had the King Suite the last few trips, good price, nice sized room. Walking distance to Lenny's and Bright House field, perfect place for staying during Spring training. Already booked for next year's trip!

We met family at this motel, March 2012, for a spur of the moment occasion -- funeral --- as with funerals, there is "no time" to look for reviews and you trust the person making reservations, for their selection. We spent 2 nights here. Also, time of year, we were lucky to get the block of rooms that we did!! It was pricey, but we were in a peak season...Just thankful we were able to get rooms, at all! It also was convenient to shopping and dining options, and right off of highway.

Check in and check out, was speedy, friendly front desk attendent, free breakfast was nice, filling, everything you'd need to start the day.......overall experience, "OK" --- Our room was a handicap one, with large bath, reasonably clean, but evidence of "needed maintenance" or sprucing up. Plenty of towels, for the 2 of us; Realizing this might be a high traffic motel, then I'm sure it's a nightmare on daily maintenance. Room was roomy enough with 2 double beds, with hang up armoir, microwave/refrigerator, large TV, (remote was missing it's battery cover), coffee maker was not working --- made a half pot of coffee, and stopped, with water collected in the filter.

ALSO, for a handicap room, it was located, at the farthest point, (rear of motel) possible from the Breakfast area!!! Each morning my husband, (Handicapped), had to get in our car and DRIVE UP to the front of the motel for breakfast!! Word of warning --- be sure you know where you room is, in relation to the breakfast/front desk areas!! That was the major inconvenience! We were on the first floor, also. Front desk did say they had elevators, but most of what I saw, was stairs.....another point to be sure to ASK ABOUT.

Sheets were clean, no bed bugs, but when I opened the refrigerator, OUT crawled a roach! Well, this is Florida, isn't it?

Next time we are in Clearwater, we will look for better accomodations, but in a "pinch", it was OK.

Room Tip: Be sure you know where Handicap Rooms are located, and ask if there are elevators.

Stayed here for two days last month. Seemed the same as before and still was as busy as ever. This was at least our third visit to this location.
A/c unit in wall was really, really loud but it did work. Toilet overflowed for no reason when we got there and it took awhile for maintenance to get there--not a good way to start a stay.

Breakfast had changed a bit and was not as good as in the past.

Staff were top notch and very nice. Prices were reasonable.

Not sure if I will ever stop back again because there are many options nearby.

The service at the front desk was the best part of my stay here. It's a non-smoking hotel, but two of the rooms I looked at both smelled of smoke. The pool area was okay, but nothing to write home about. Guests have access to a local gym. The grounds of the hotel were taken care of, but the interiors need remodeling in a bad way. Some of the guests appeared to be calling this hotel home as they had pictures on the windows and glass doors. Interesting...
