Very much enjoyed our stay here. Direct access to the beach which is right across the street. This is the quiet end of the barrier island, with the residential homes adjacent to the motel block. Previous reviews mention noise from construction. We did not experience any such noise. The motel itself appears to have been built in the 1950s, based...

The hotel is perfectly located a short stroll from the beach and walk to the main bars and restaurants. The hotel staff are a real asset - all extremely welcoming and helpful. We enjoyed the pool and sun loungers too. The only downfall here was the room we stayed in (queen - hotel style). It was incredibly small and out...

If you like a holiday in a little box in among lots of other little boxes in large chain hotel group, this place may not be for you. If, however, you love the way some parts of Clearwater Beach was, before they sent the bulldozers in and "modernised" the place, this could be the place for you. We had a...

What a great vacation!! The staff are incredibly friendly and helpful. The resort offered everything for fun and relaxation. The deluxe King one bedroom was as described. My only complaint was the uncomfortable pull out sofa. We will go back for sure.

Clean room and very friendly staff. If you enjoy being a little way from the strip but within walking distance to it this is a great place. The only problem was the bathroom was small. Overall a nice place to stay.

I wish I could rate the staff separately from the hotel itself. Theo, Andre, and Barbie and other staff went out of their way to accommodate us. I can't say enough about them. The location of the hotel was great too. They are trying their best to update the rooms but ours needed more (111). There was no electrical outlet...

It was super clean, good size, well maintained and had comfortable beds and in nice rooms. The full kitchen was really nice and handy. Living room with a couch, chair and a great big TV...

This motel is located just a few minutes walk from Clearwater Beach and multiple restaurant amenities. Staff is friendly, let us check in early. Room was quite small ( think Manhattan hotel rooms), but king bed was comfy enough. Bathroom is tiny and a bit dated, but functioned just fine. Loved the location. Nice outdoor pool, but hot tub was...

I liked the location and I found the staff to be most accommodating. We booked a 2 bedroom in July for March knowing that it would be a busy time. We arrived at noon, checked in and we were advised check in was 3:00 pm. They said we could park and they would notify us when our room was available....
