A great spot. Clean. Bikes to borrow with bike lock. Pool was heated and a pleasant atmosphere with the water fall. It would get crowded quickly, but is also an easy walk to the beach. Staff were accomodating and helpful with suggestions for dinner. Options for getting around: freebeachride.com, uber, beach trolley. Beach was clean and lots of seashells. Sharky's...

We had an amazing time at Island Cay in early February. You are at the north end and away from the busy hotels. So quiet and peaceful at Island Cay. There are bikes on site to use and beach buggies with umbrellas. The pool is wonderful and warm and the office has pool towels to use. Free onsite parking, nice...

Unfortunately, at the time of our stay, there was major construction from early morning to late afternoon directly across the street from the Island Cay. So, our quiet beach experience wasn't quiet. The air conditioners are quite noisy in the rooms. If you want quiet, I would suggest another location. The motel is very nice, clean and the people who...

Dear Randy, Let me start by thanking you for your valuable feedback. I consider a 3 star review to be quite poor, so your insights are taken very seriously and will be addressed accordingly. As for the construction and noise, I am VERY pleased to inform you that the neighboring property has finally been completed, restoring the tranquility of the...

We booked one night at the last minute after a trip to Disney World. Found this little gem on Trip Advisor. We were a little nervous as we usually stay in Hampton Inns or our travel trailer. We loved this place!! We came in contact with four employees and all were very courteous and helpful. The room was perfect in...

Staff were friendly and helpful. My suite room was clean and very beautiful. And I really liked how close I was from beaches and attractions. I love that the pool was heated since the weather was a little chill in FL at that time. I like that I had designated parking lot. I recommended.

My first impression was that this is not your Corporate run motel. The young man that checked me in actually walked me to my room. My first night I stayed in a queen room. Nothing fancy, adequate, clean. My second and third nights I moved to a king suite. This room was so comfortable with everything you can imagine. I...

Island Cay is an older motel being upgraded by the new owner. He led us to our room and made sure everything was correct. The location is a 1 and 1!2 block walk to the beach. The price is right and I would recommend it if your looking to keep your travel cheap.

For the price, it was a decent room. We stayed in a standard king that needed updating.. but we heard the suites have been updated. Walls were super thin, we heard our neighbors conversations, and the bed was pretty uncomfortable. I'd stay again in a pinch because the staff was so nice and accommodating though and it was very close...

Tufftopleasee, General Manager at The Island Cay at Clearwater Beach, responded to this review

Dear Julie, Currently we are striving to deliver what I consider to be two of the most important factors impacting the overall guest experience in the hotel industry; cleanliness and exceptional guest service. Additionally, we are trying to keep our rates very reasonable to compensate for some of the inconveniences we have yet to correct during this time of renovation....

My best friend and I travel to FL once a year for a visit. We decided to stay in Clearwater this year at the Island Cay rentals. We got a 2 bedroom apartment and it was wonderful and so comfortable. It had a full kitchen that had your basic necessities. It was just a block away from the beach and...

Booked this hotel because all the reviews were positive. We had room 107, the patio doors looked at a wall, the front door opened to a wall. The bathroom was very small with no electrical outlet. There is a mirror in the bedroom but no outlet close. On the positive side it is a short walk to the beach and...
