Location was perfect. Views were great. Charming little place. Dated, but still fun. Hannah the desk clerk was the best! She took great care of things!! Heard it was closing, but that would be a big mistake..... Just update things... It'll be fine....

Wonderful gem of a resort tucked nicely in the heart of Clearwater. Clean, well maintained and quiet. Friendly staff! Beach, shopping and restaurants are close. View of the bay and the marina are superb. Nice fishing off their dock. Would take this over the pricey neon behemoth hotels any day.

I feel so sad to be writing this review. Our family has gone to the Sea Captain for over 40 years- 3 generations of our family. We have also recommended this small delightful gem to many many friends over the years. When it sold to the company that owns Pier 60 Hotel it did nothing but go downhill. The previous...

What an enjoyable stay we had. Hannah in the office was wonderful. Great location. Close to everything. Clean and comfy. Elevated pool overlooking the marina. Staff on site until 9PM. We'll be back! The room was spacious. Kitchenette. TV-many channels. Shuffleboard. Fishing deck. Grilling stations.

We have been here a few times before, everything is walkable. Rooms are very clean and it was quiet. Nice place by the beach. Had fishing poles we could use and a few lawn chairs to take to the beach which was across the street. Close to the pier and liked the outdoor movie show they had on the pier....

it was great option near the area attractions for our young family on a budget. the bedroom had 2 full beds (admittedly a little tight for my 6'5" husband and myself), but it was worth the extra sleep we got in the AM when the kids (3 and 6 years old) would get up at 6:30 and go to the...

We absolutely loved our stay here, we were going to stay just one night but added an extra night. Staff were fantastic and very helpful. The location was what really attracted us to the hotel. My daughter loved it when one of the guests who was fishing near the pool asked if she would like to have a try.

Took a trip the Tampa Bay Rays game for my husbands birthday. When we arrived at the hotel the front office was closed and left the key as they had promised at the hotel next door. We ended up locked out of our room overnight as our keys would not open the deadbolt to the room. Security was contacted and...
