“Another great experience at Sea Captain Resort!!”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

My family, along with extended family and friends, have been coming to the Sea Captain Resort since 1976! We've never considered staying anywhere else and we've never been disappointed!
We just returned from a fun week at the Sea Captain and we'll be making reservations for next year. It's hard to top Sea Captain's location, cleanliness, top-notch staff, fishing opportunities and family atmosphere!! Hope we all can continue to enjoy our vacations at the Sea Captain Resort for years to come!

We have been staying at the Sea Captain for 25 years. It is the best place on Clearwater Beach. It is comfortable & cozy. We love the small, family atmosphere. It has a little of everything for everyone. There's a dock to fish, shuffleboard, grills, and a hot tub. You can bring a large family with diverse ages & interests and everyone can relax and enjoy. We were just there for a long weekend and were devastated to hear that it was sold. We truly hope the new owners do not change the concept.

Just returned this past week from a week long stay at the Sea Captain Resort in Clearwater Beach, FL. We had a total of 28 people and 9 rooms rented in all. There is no better place for a large group of various ages to unwind and have a great time. The rooms are very clean and the grounds are always well maintained. Pool time, shuffleboard and fishing can be enjoyed by all along with the close proximity of the beach and restaurants - couldn't ask for anymore. We all have rebooked for next year. You won't be disappointed. Northern Kentucky Residents

Room Tip: 2 floors with 28 rooms in all - 3 types of rooms to choose from.

I live here in Clearwater, but rented two rooms here for visiting family. It is a great location, very clean and spacious. The pool is nice, the staff is very good and friendly. My sisters and nephews loved it! Much easier than having 4 extra people at my house. I hung out there often. They have several docks, so we were able to come by boat as well. Close to so much. Pier 60 and the beach is right across the street,Great spot! They also had an included breakfast!

We visited in June. This place did not disappoint. It was clean, quiet and has the perfect location. We wouldn't want to stay anywhere else. I enjoyed the nights and sitting outside looking at the bay.

Room Tip: Couldn't get a bad room...I'd choose one on the bay if available.

This quaint hotel is located near lots of shopping, eating and across the street from the beach. The kitchenette is functional for a short stay. The living / dining area is spacious unless you need to pull out the sofa then it's a little tight. The staff is friendly. The view is of the Harbor and our kids liked watching the boats come in and out. There is a small pool and a few docks you can use. The only negative is the giant building right in front of them that blocks what used to be a view of the gulf.

My friend and I visited from June 4-8 as a quick getaway. We were very happy with the Sea Captain. It really has a nice vibe for relaxing. I did not give the hotel a 5 only because it is older- no fault against the motel...I just don't want people to think it has the elegance of someplace like a Ritz. The Sea Captain is a beach motel, clean, accomodating and great location! We will return here again in the future- we may have found the perfect place for us 40 somethings to gather! We enjoyed speaking to the many families that have returned year over year to the Sea Captain- really is a good place to host family gatherings and relaxing girls getaways in my case. This motel is not a party central- rather a family or relaxation type of atomosphere. And you can't beat the beach across the street and restaurants all within feet from the motel. Great work to the owners and staff- they make every effort to make sure your visit is enjoyable.

Room Tip: We liked the second floor that overlooked the marina- was fun to see all the sightseeing boats pull...
