“Nice Room, questionable breakfast”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 March 2012

King suite was in excellent shape, comfortable bed, nice layout. Convenient PCs around the corner from lobby. Easy parking.

Breakfast wasn't particularly appetizing; surprising for a Choice Hotel. Orange juice seemed to be tang, scrambled eggs were served in a large stainless steel container, so they were runny unless it was nearly empty, and some of the pancakes were tough (couldn't cut with the plastic knife)!

The exercise room had a recumbent bike, treadmill, a universal gym, and a TV. The treadmill (my first choice) and TV didn't work. Bike did; can't vouch for the u. gym.

I stayed at this hotel 2 weeks ago, the front desk staff was nice and overall the property was a 3 star. Twice I complained to the front desk about cockroaches in my room, after the second complaint I had to move hotels. Thankfully the second hotel was very nice and clean

This is an older property but has recently been renovated extremely well. The rooms are not large but comfortable and the beds are great. There is large, beautiful pool area and an on-site restaurant and bar, which is becoming rare in moderately priced hotels. The staff was friendly. The location is great with a Perkins in easy walking distance and anything you want in a short drive. We visit this area two or three times a year and will definitely be coming back here. The property has had several names in the last few years, including "The Grand" but the management seems very happy with their association with Clarion.

I booked this hotel online, and was a little worried when I saw that it was a "drive-up" motel instead of all-interior-corridor motel. I'm not crazy about that in a strange area, but it turned out just fine. The hotel is tucked between the highway on-ramp and a nice business park in a good area. Everything, inside and out, was VERY clean (and I am picky). The kitchen area and bath counters were granite (or fake). Room was adequately spacious, beds VERY comfortable (sleep number beds), everything in good working order. Breakfast was great with hot eggs and pancakes and more. The room had a strange odor, don't know if it was some type of cleaning agent or what, but not overpowering. Lots of stores and restaurants nearby. Too bad this hotel, like so many, only offer double beds! Who sleeps in a double bed anymore, anyway?

Room Tip: I believe only the "suites" are on the interior of the building. All others seem to be ex...

We were in Clearwater for 5 nights on family business. We stayed one night as a sample and ended up staying all 5 nights. We up graded to a mini-suite and for $79-$84.00, we were glad we did! We had 2 flat screen TVs, a mini fridge, a microwave, a king bed, pull-out couch, table and chairs, and a living room chair. The internet was free and fast, they allowed me to print for free in the lobby, the breakfast was great (Denver styled scrambled eggs w/onions, green peppers and ham) and the pool/ hot tub were wonderful. The desk staff was fine and present -even at our 2:00 am arrival time. The room was clean and the bedding was great. It is not a brand new property, so what if there was a little duct tape on the a/c unit? It was efficient and not musty. We had a little mildew in the shower and after a quick call to housekeeping, it was cleaned spic and span!

Room Tip: The suite rooms have balconies which overlook the pool oasis. The mini suites are a little cheaper...

A very well kept older property. Was a Radisson for years. Cleanest pool area grounds I have seen for some time. Good breakfast. Front desk personnel were at the desk and very attentive to me (another reviewer could not find a person). Large cIean room, wireless and flat screen TV were great. Easy access off US 19 and FL 60, but quiet as can be in the room. I would certainly return.

Nobody in the lobby, behind the desk or to be found upon check-in. Amazed - took 10 mins to find someone that worked there. Room had broken A/C unit, broken/running toilet and dirty sheets. Also a nice must smell.

Wasn't expecting much, but this place should advertise what it is. A cheap bed with some major inconveniences - not a 3 star hotel. Staff was not in the lobby again at check-out. Just terrible.
