“Absolutly brilliant, Faultless,Superb , i could go on and on”
Reviewed 26 September 2010

We were fortunate to have chosen the Sea Captains having first checked the comments on trip advisor. The place is stunning; the staff are superb they could not have been more helpful. We had stayed at Johns Pass before so thought we were ok with the area but being visitors you are always in need of some direction. The location is right on the water with fantastic views of the boats in the marina coming and going which we loved to sit and watch. We were so impressed we sat one afternoon and tried to find just one thing to moan about and the best we could come up with was a rope on one sail boat chattered on the mast as the breeze rocked the boat. The rooms are spotlessly clean and all well maintained which is a credit to the lovely house keepers who were always so friendly and clearly enjoyed their work. The grounds are equally well cared for with plenty of chairs and loungers. We saw the owner on a number of occasions walking with cleaning staff and the maintenance staff who were all very focused on making sure the whole place was immaculate. So if you choose the Sea Captains I can guarantee you could not be disappointed with the place, we met people from the US and UK who return year after year. Our only mistake, being canny Scots we only booked a room which we realized on the first day did not have any means of cooking and only had a microwave and fridge, no cups or crockery. I went to reception and asked if there were any facilities to make or purchase coffee, straight away I was handed, with a big smile, a coffee machine, filters, coffee and creamer. We then decided that if we were going to be staying for a few days we should have booked a suite which had a cooker and crockery, which we did and would recommend that you do. Not that there was anything whatsoever wrong with the room.
Thanks for contributing to us having a lovely relaxing time.

Stayed one night at this tidy bay front gem. Yes its old and small but very well kept and clean. The location was excellent and the view of the bay perfect. Even being in a busy area it was very quiet. The beds were made with very nice linens and comfortable with extra pillows. For the price paid it was a good value. I would stay again. Loved the shuffleboard!

My family and I just returned from a trip to Clearwater Beach. I can't say enough about the Sea Captain Resort. This little place is the best. Very comfortable beds...family atsmosphere...close to everything. We had no idea what we had found when we reserved our rooms. We plan to stay again next year and for years to come. This is not a fancy place but very clean...kinda reminds you of your grandma's house.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Sea Captain Resort.
We just loved the location, right across the street from the beach and pier and also directly on the marina. We were able to walk everywhere, restaurants, shops and sunsets on the beach. We had a beautiful second floor corner room with great views of all of the boats, ( I think it was room # 22).
There definately are more modern, newer and larger resorts available here at Clearwater Beach. But we prefer the smaller resorts with that old time Florida feel.
My only complaint is that we were told we would have internet access available through the marina.We tried to place our laptop right by the window aiming it towards the marina and it was difficult. Slow going even when we did get connected. Very frustrating if you need to use the internet.

The Sea Captain is a small place, located in the middle of everything you will like to see in Clearwater. Across from Pier 60, views to the Bay and Marina, all in a quiet and cozy space.They have the sweetest, most helpful staff I have met in years, including my many trips to 5 star hotels and much so called "fancier" places.
How would you like to get to a place where you get free stuff along with your rate, such as free brand-new bikes for the day!, or coffe at the office? When tired of those expensive places that charge EXTRA for even the simplest things? try the Sea Captain!! You will be surprised.
