“A fabulous find on the Beach”
Reviewed 18 November 2013 via mobile

We booked thus hotel as a package deal and upon our arrival was a little shocked by our first impressions of the slightly dowdy reception and communal areas. This was soon rectified by the rooms to which they met and beat our expectation. For the money, it was fabulous. The beds were comfortable and big; the bathroom was clean and tidy (much better than you find in Disney hotels!); the amenities were great...Huge tv, good size fridge, microwave, great size chest of drawers and a reasonable size wardrobe. We found we had a partial seaview even though we never paid for it and were delighted with this. We were on the East side on the building, so away from the current building works on the new building to the west.

The swimming pool was better than the photos show and the view was lovely. You have a beach bar next to the pool that serves bar food. The beach was so pretty and private, note that a sun bed is $10 a day to rent, parasol $10 a day or 2 beds and a parasol for $20 and is run by the beach bar. Beach towels are provided by the hotel. Car parking is $10+ tax per day. Located by the main entrance is the Ihop....if you can overlook the dated decor, the staff are great and the food matches that!

As for getting around, directly outside the hotel is the Jolley Trolley bus stop and for $4.50 a day you can jump on and off at your leisure, which goes all the way to St.Petes beach or St Petersburg and back up and around Clearwater (red is the local Clearwater bus, Green/Blue is the St.Petes etc.) Approx 30minutes by bus is John's Pass which is a boardwalk style shopping and restaurant location. Also recommend a visit to Clearwater Marine Aquarium and to visit Winter and Hope the dolphins...again accessible via Jolley Trolley just over the road from the Quality Hotel.

As you may now understand, this hotel is a great budget find and well located...a little treasure.

A good enough budget hotel for a night or two's stopover at lovely Clearwater Beach. It's within walking distance of Pier 60 and the Marina and the I-Hop attached guarantees a good breakfast. But unless you get a sea view then the view is rubbish (our view was of a car park and a road) and they charged me $10 to park my car in the hotel car park - after having already paid $129 for the room. I think this is a blatant rip off and should I visit Clearwater Beach again I will look for hotels with parking included. I have never heard of a hotel charging a guest extra to park the car and as I was a bit of a captivated audience it left a bitter taste.

Room Tip: Insist on a sea view - apparantly you can see dolphins early in the morning rather than tarmac like...

It's a small hotel right on the beach spent a week there in July 2012 after 2 weeks walking about Disney and universal with the kids it was the perfect place for my wife and I to relax. It gets a bit busy at the weekends as with the locals turning up on there boats as this is 1 of the only beaches that has a drinks licence but I was able to do a bit of fishing right on the beach and the sunsets were stunning I've booked to go back July 2014 can't wait

After having an issue with another hotel, we ended up here as a last minute stay (no reservation). The staff here has one answer to every request for help - Yes. Everyone that works in the hotel is friendly and genuinely happy to have you there. This has to come from the top. When a maintenance guy painting an elevator thanks you for staying, you know its a concern that all employees share.

The room was clean and quiet. That's about all you could ask for. The hotel is older but you don't get the feeling that its not taken care of at all.

Again, service is what makes what would be a 3 or 4 star hotel - a 5 star hotel and this place has it.

I have stayed at this hotel for 2 nights and had a great seafront room overlooking the swimming pool and out to sea. Very comfortable, clean with a lively bar and good IHOP restaurant out front. It is in a central location and great for walking or driving in the Clearwater beach or other off shore islands going South. Safe area and plenty to do and see in local area.

Fantastic hotel. Balconies in every room and great beds. Was able to be awoken by the sunrise each morning. The only complaint was that the elevator was entirely too small. The luggage rack was a pain to get in and out. It's tough traveling with all our work equipment plus our luggage. The ihop located inside was amazing,too.
