Wanted to reward kids with completing their school year with a surprise weekend trip out to Clearwater. Found this hotel through booking.com. Plenty of space for all 5 us (two beds, one pull out). We usually stay at Coconut Cove but rate entices us to try this spot.
Great: balcony looking out onto beach, walking distance to (the pier 60 activities, ice cream shop downstairs, FlowRider@SurfStyle); beach access across the street
Good: check in was quick, representatives were friendly, pool is no frills but clean and big enough that 10 families were in it at the time we jumped in and it wasn't cramped
Ok: room was a little worn, paint peeling from door, carpet was travelled (but durable for beach visitors)
Slight downgrade: a few fruit flies observed, to turn on shower took some additional torque and pressure-nonetheless water pressure was good.
Only regret: walls a little thin, especially our room near the stairwell so we heard a few interesting drunken exchanges.
BIG WARNING: After checking in, I was told to put the parking pass visible from the rear view mirror immediately as the lot is constantly scanned by the tow company. I did not heed the advice and brought all my luggage/family in first. No exaggeration, 6-8 minutes I returned to get last of luggage and hang my tag and the tow company was in process of hooking up our minivan. I showed my tag and they immediately stopped (which I don't think they had to do and appreciated that the trio did not start out on a sour note).
Hang your tag first!
All in all not a bad economical stay.
