We have used Trip Advisor many times and have gotten numerous good recommendations. However this time we felt that we were totally misled. I can't understand why this motel was rated number one in Clearwater Beach. I would agree that the location on the bay was nice and that the woman who staffed the office was pleasant. However, the motel itself was very old and dated. Although the room was clean, it was decorated completely without any taste. Furniture and wallpaper were ugly. Baseboards were carpeted, and the bathrooms were small and obsolete. There was no sound insulation, and conversations outside the room sounded like they were taking place right in the middle of the bed, which was encased in plastic. Towels felt like sandpaper. We discovered a brand new hotel, the Sandpearl Resort, which was located directly on the beach about a ten minute walk north. We paid $110 for this small, depressing room. An elegant room at the Sandpearl with tasteful furnishings and a bathroom with a marble floor and granite countertops would have been $169 for the same time period. Yes, it was more expensive, but it was a world apart. It was like the difference between a trailer park and the Ritz Carlton. Next time we will stay there.
