“Great staff, excellent location, clean rooms, comfortable beds.”
Reviewed 21 April 2014

When looking for a place to stay in Clearwater Beach, the best thing about the Sea Captain isn't its location across the street from the sandy beach. It isn't the clean pools and comfortable poolside furniture. It isn't the clean rooms and firm mattresses. It isn't even the fact that you can walk to amazing restaurants. The best thing about the Sea Captain is the staff. Always willing to help, friendly, doing all the little things, treating you like family--they are the best. In fact, we went to Disney World after our 4 night stay at the Sea Captain--the staff at the Sea Captain could teach Mickey & friends a few things about how to treat guests. I organized a group of five families, and we will be back.

Stayed here for the past 2 yrs and it gets better every year. The staff is amazing and the place is perfect. Love fishing off the boat slips and children friendly. I've already booked next year. The breakfast on the weekends was great. The repeat customers make it so welcoming. Can't wait to return.

Picked this hotel based on trip advisor reviews and so glad I did. The front desk staff is friendly & helpful. The hotel is clean and perfectly set up. The pool overlooks the marina and there are tables and chairs everywhere to enjoy the views. The beach is just across the street. There were good bars & restaurants all within walking distance. The Phillies spring training is about 20 mins away. I'm glad I didnt rent a car because we didnt need it at all. We will definitely be back.

This establishment had a retro feel although is very well maintained and our room was very clean. Our room offered a view of the ocean, and a view of the bay. The location is central to everything. We walked everywhere, never getting back in our car until the day we had to return home, and parking is free. When we decided to extend our stay an extra day, Tom went out of his way to accommodate us, and also keep us in our same room. If you are looking for clean rooms, great location, helpful staff all at a reasonable price then this would be the place. And did I mention quaint...it is very quaint.

Room Tip: Rooms on second floor have great bay views.

We chose Sea Captain Resort because of many wonderful Trip Advisor reviews. We were very happy with everything about the place. The front desk people Tom & Kristyna were helpful, even when I left a piece of luggage behind, and Tom sent it by taxi to the airport for me. The entire place is kept spotlessly clean, and that includes all the outdoor maintenance done by a wonderful man Pepe. My husband could swim his morning laps in the warm pool, and I found nice shady places to sit to read my book. We were on the second floor, and could eat our breakfast and lunch on the lovely balcony area. It was a lovely 10-day vacation. The place is within walking distance to many restaurants and the famous Pier 60, and beach. We hope to return some time.

Room Tip: Upper floor for viewing lovely sunrises over the marina

Recently returned from a 3 night stay with a friend at this hotel. It is center to everything in Clearwater Beach. It sits on the marina and we loved sitting on the pier in the evening and watching the booze cruise boats come in and out. We even saw fireworks one night from the Clearwater jazz fest. The pool was warm and clean. The rooms were clean and spacious with a mini fridge and microwave as well as a mini stove and whatever utensils we needed. We used the bicycles one day to ride over the bridge to Shell Key and would highly recommend this. While it was hot with the sun shining, we arrived at the key early and found many shells and a warm ocean where dolphins played. Beautiful! Ocean is across the street as is Pier 60. Can't get better than that! Had breakfast on Sunday morning which included fresh fruit, bagels, coffee and muffins. We parked our car on arrival and did not move it the rest of our stay. Staff is friendly and helpful. I am bad with names, but the female staff member who was raised in this area was super friendly and great with helping us. Definitely would stay here again over any hotel in the area.

I am so very glad you enjoyed your stay. We have begun to dip a little bit in temperature here, but nothing compared to what you are experiencing in NC. I hope to see you again on your next trip to Florida and from our staff to your home, Happy Holidays!!

the motel was clean, well kept, comfortable beds, and the staff was so helpful. Especially with directions to special places I was wanting to go. The location of the motel is the best because I could walk to the things I wanted to see without trying to find a place to park.I will definitely stay there again !!

Room Tip: I had a first floor , no stairs to have to take suitcases up !
