“Nice hotel...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 August 2012

We booked here for 2 nights after a cruise from Tampa. Nice location and not far from anything. The pool and hottub was clean and refreshing. Beautiful view of the beach. The rooms were adequate size and had a small stove and refridgerater. Nice balcony with chairs and a table. Rooms were clean and bathroom was big. Very good for the price.

We were pleasantly surprised at this hotel. Lobby was very clean and inviting. Staff was friendly. Our room was spacious and very clean. The windows were so clean it was like we were looking directly at the water with no window! I've never noticed windows being clean or not, that's how clean they were! Loved the fact the room had a nice sized balcony with two chairs and table. We were on the west side so was able to see the sun set on the 4th floor. We also were able to "enjoy" the party going on at the hotel next door. Lots of people and music was really loud, but when we were ready to go to bed, it didn't bother us at all. Would definitely return!

Room Tip: Rooms on east side are quieter, and although you'll still have a water view, you don't see t...

I visited my neice who was renting two rooms at this hotel for her family. I was told I could park in the lot until 9:30pm but would have to move at that time. We were sitting at the pool having pizza and the manager knew we were there. This was only down the hall from the front desk. We walked thru the lobby at 9:40pm to leave and he said the car was already towed. The car had to be towed way before 9:30 as it was already at the impound lot about 4 miles away. They insisted i had to pay the $110.00 tow charge in cash and made me wait 1 hour before i could retrieve the car. I sincerely believe the manager gets a cut of the tow money. Anybody that runs a business in this fashion should be ashamed. Stay away from this place!

We recently stayed here on Friday night, after a long day at the small beach we retired to a room that the bed was drenched in urine. The hotel was full so we could not be moved. we were offered cots which we said no we will flip mattress and please bring us clean linens. Well they were out of mattress pads and had only damp blankets. We did get clean sheets and pillows. The room was comped for the night but they never even sent a email to apoligize and to offer a free stay at a later time, nothing my weekend was ruined and after I sent a letter they respnded with basically our regrets
but we choose to offer no other compensation. I would never go back they have a problem with the housekeeping every room should be changed no matter what after each guest. Our room was 246 the mattress is gross and I am sure it still is. Connie from Avon Park, Florida

Terribly noisy music nearby (staff did not infiorm anybody despite of knowing about this permanent issue), air condition over the bed blowing directly over the body, dirty and small beach with boats just few meters from the shore, very weak "continental" bakfast (i'm courious, which continent they thought about...)

This is an average property with a great rate on the water. The beach is smaller than most of Clearwater Beach - because it is on the Intracoastal Waterway. It is a unique location with a view of the Gulf. Lots of activity. My only request on this trip was a balcony room to watch the water. The corner room was perfect....EXCEPT....the ongoing party next door at Shepherds Resort....if you want a party this is the place. If you want ANY peace AT ALL do not stay here. The music was so loud that sitting on the balcony was impossible - and inside with the door closed did not help. As far as the beach...the locals all park their boats there and there are anchor lines and drunks everywhere. There is nowhere to get in the water near the hotel without the risk of being run over by a boat. The party is a regular event until 12am (Sun-TH) and 2am (FR-SAT) according to the front desk clerk. We witnessed a fight between two "ladies" , excessive drinking by young people and many near misses as boats arrived....in the two hour period we could tolerate on the balcony Saturday afternoon between 12 and 2 pm. Not my idea of a day at the beach.

Room Tip: Corner room has a view of the intracoastal and gulf

I found this to be economy lodging with a very clean, tidy, odorless room. The linens were clean; the bed comfortable. A small kitchenette helped me supplement the basic breakfast. When it rained, 99 channels on the HDTV saved the day. When the sun shone, the balcony was refreshing. The desk clerk did border on being rude at checkin, but I only interacted with him twice. I was pleased to find reasonable lodging at Clearwater.

Room Tip: Room 542 had an adequate balcony with a partial gulf view; an excellent city view. It was a clean...
