This hotel was truely great! I can't say enough nice things about it. First off the man at the front desk, Dave, was just as helpful and nice as could be. He really was a pleasure to deal with and was extremely knowledgeable about the area and was helpful at getting us great deals at many if the local attractions. My family and I had a very large and spacious room overlooking their immaculate pool area (you could also see the ocean!). The housekeepers did an amazing job at keeping our room spotless, which can be a chore with my kids! Would highly recommend this hotel. Kids were happy, husband was happy which equals a great stay :)

WOW! the beach is steps away!!! Nice pool area, not very crowded. We looked at several hotels and this was very affordable, with perfect location. Robin, at the front desk was so nice and friendly. She was also very helpful and informative. We stayed here with our 2 young sons - and the kitchen - fridge/microwave was essential to our hotel room and the top reason we picked this hotel. YES, the rooms are "outdated" but we were only in the room to sleep.- There is a surf shop just steps away from the hotel that sells all sorts of grocery items. Overall, I was very pleased with our stay - and used the money we saved from not staying at a pricier hotel for fun cruises and dinners!

Our room was HUGE by Clearwater Beach standards--with two double beds, a fold-out couch, an efficiency kitchenette, a kitchen table for two, a large balcony, and enough room for a ton of luggage with space to spare. It was maintained impeccably by the housekeeping staff, the grounds were tastefully landscaped, and everything was kept unbelievably clean. Since the hotel is at the southern end of the Beach Walk (just north of the Clearwater Pass and breakwater), the crosswalk in front of the hotel leads guests to the white sands and balmy waters of Clearwater Beach.

While the facility exceeded expectations, the service was beyond compare. As I stepped out of my room with the ice bucket and was immediately guided to the ice machine by Dave, the evening desk manager, we knew that this experience would be remarkable. He and the rest of the crew anticipated our every need. They went above and beyond to make our stay as comfortable as a 4 star hotel at a reasonable price.

Room Tip: Call the hotel and ask for descriptions of the available rooms. Beach views on floors 2-4 are unobst...

Me and my girlfriend drove here, for her birthday. We were hot from the walk back from crabby bills, good food, we wanted to go for a swim. The pool was locked, still wanted to swim, climbed the fence no real harm right, wrong lady came over told us to get out of the pool. So we did wright away. No problem right, wrong guy from front desk comes over tells us to get our stuff from our room and leave or he will call the cops, not kiddin said it just like that no worning nothin just get out no refund. We were whispering in the pool were not drinking playing music we had our clothes on. No warning to the room nothing we just checked in 2 hours earlier. BIGGEST RIPPOFF EVER don't waste your money, she was crying on her birthday weekend, almost ruined our trip.

We will never, ever, stay here again, the "Magnificent" Magnuson (not). I booked the hotel for a fun 4th of July, trying to save a few bucks. Oh heck, no! Upon arrival, our first thought was what did we get ourselves into. So disappointing, we so lowered our standards and will never settle for the unknown factor again. Oh yes, I researched reviews a little, but it was crunch time and in the interest of budgeting, yeah, yeah, all of that. I certainly should have not booked this joint.

The front desk lady was so unfriendly and didn't know what the heck she was doing, no greeting and had us standing around while she tried to check us in on the computer which was super slow or she was illiterate, take your choice, finally hubby asked if we should just come back later because she could not figure it out. Had to pay $10 for a ratty additional parking for a second car. Returned to the hotel a few hours later 3:30 p.m., 2 front desk staff checked us in. Elevator no working and we had to go up 3 flights of stairs, lugging luggage, okay great. Other guests laughed and joked that elevator never fixed. At the room, housekeeper was there just beginning the clean up. It was a horrible looking room. I panicked and we headed back to the office to advise them. I asked if we could just cancel and unfortunately we had booked with Expedia and did not know if we could. The hubby said we would suck it up (literally you need a cold one to get thru this hotel). They upgraded our room (really). The room was dark, dump, stained chairs, depressing, large and had a fridge. The website mentions a complimentary breakfast. I saw a roll of some sort and coffee and 1 table in the front desk area. Tried the coffee and ran the heck out of there to Mcdonald's.

To counter the depressing atmosphere and feel better we sauntered over to the beach and to the Hyatt (Pink) and enjoyed their steel drum band... and such things on the 8th floor, oh so nice the view, the beach, the cleanliness, the class, the upgrade. Hear me when i tell you and believe we will never, ever, ever, ever make the same mistake again to save a little money. It was disgusting having to go back to that rat hole. Just not for us. Could be a spot for desperate drunk spring breakers, hookers and such wanting a motel by the hour. Good point: centrally located near beach and "Shepherds." Okay consider yourself warned.
