Nice Place on Clearwater Beach. Was more than I expected! The staff were very helpful, and informative about the island. I had a very relaxing experience at the hotel. And a comfortable room to stay in. I can't say enough about it. Definitely coming back.

Clean rooms, AC unit loud and needs filter cleaned, walls are very thin and you can hear other guest having conversations. Nice pool and hot tub. Across the street from the beach on the north end of Mandalay Ave. Staff is super and want to make sure you are having a great stay. Queen bed was comfortable. Good water pressure...

Stayed here with all of my family for the night before and of my wedding. Hotel was immaculate, staff friendly, good parking. Didn't get chance to swim in the pool but it looked lovely. Wedding beach venue was 2 mins away so it was a great location. Will definitely be back for another visit next time I'm in America!

My husband and I stayed here recently and it was more than perfect for the price. The location is north of the busy center, but it'd only a short brisk walk to the beach or the center. I would defiantly recommend this if you're looking for a nice, clean motel!

This is not a five-star hotel, but this IS a five star bungalow motel that is beyond clean and comfy. If you want all the modern comforts of home, don't stay here, because you won't have china and chandeliers. We had a full size kitchen, king sized bed, flat screen TV and a well managed motel that gave us a...

We showed up in Clearwater Beach without a place to stay and just used an app to search the are, trying to find a balance between economy and comfort. The Island Cay was just that. If you want a clean, basic, comfortable room with a full kitchen at a very affordable price (relative to the area) then look no further...

After a bit of a shaky start with noisy neighbours ( not the hotels fault) but overall we enjoyed our stay. Office closes at 9 so no night cover but it didn't really matter. Pool is fine, location is close to a few,bars and diner type places. Overall didn't pay a fortune so not disappointed!

This hotel is exceptional! Conveniently located near the beach surrounded by greAt restaurants :) staff was very accommodating and had great clean homey feel. They also have a beautiful pool! Can't wait for our next trip back to this spot! If I could give them more than 5 stars I would.

The grounds were well-kept and beautiful! We appreciated having use of bikes and on-site do-it-yourself laundry facilities. The staff was friendly and very accommodating. My husband, who has back problems, found it difficult to sleep on the bed in the room we were assigned and we were relocated. The rooms are clean but very dated and worn. The air conditioning...

The staff were very friendly. There is a heated pool and large hot tub. Close to the beach, in a good location. There are a few things they still need to fix in the rooms such as a rickety chair and towel racks, but great having two bedrooms together with a kitchen, dining room,and living room. Only one small bathroom...
