First, let me say that for what you pay at this location, there is nothing wrong with this hotel. Granted it is old, and the rooms are small and outdated, the staff is super-friendly and the the hotel is very clean. Normally we would choose a namebrand resort, like Hyatt or Westin, but the great reviews on Tripadvisor, led us...

Thanks to TripAdvisor for a good lead on this little gem. Tucked (literally) along side the big box hotel is this little "resort"...and throwback to days gone by...with quaint rooms (we stayed in room 8, our ground floor view 180 degrees of the dock and an eastern shot back to the water)....we found this place a magic spring board of...

We were visiting family on florida's east coast. We took a road trip and ended up in Clearwater with no hotel reservations. We stopped in to the Sea Captain and was greeted by Cathy who was a great help in getting us rooms. Cathy and the entire staff were extremely helpful and friendly. The location was also great. Right across...

We took our two oldest grandkids on our annual Florida vacation this year. We have been staying at the Sea Captain for several years and love staying there. It is within walking distance to the beach, marina and restaurants. It is also a close walk to the pier where they have nightly activities and crafts. The staff are all very...

We have stayed there many times over the past decade (we would stay more if they would join Hotels.com so we could get reward points). We have stayed as just a couple for a long week end and have stayed with the kids for an entire week. Great location especially for the price. Right on the marina so you can...

We stayed for a week and had a blast. Plenty of restaurants and shopping within easy walking distance. We loved seeing the ships coming in and out of the marina. We will definitely be back!!

This darling hotel was in the perfect location. It was close to the pier, restaurants and very close the Clearwater Marine Aquarium. The view of the bay was lovely, and the atmosphere was peaceful and quiet. The hotel was immaculately clean catering to respectful clientele. It is the perfect place to stay when visiting "Winter" the Dolphin. Special thanks to...

Stayed here for three nights after reading the reviews here. Great location right in the centre of things, and close to Pier 60, but sufficiently private. Expect some road noise - and bay noise from the excursion boats - but it was remarkably peaceful by midnight. The large new Hampton, built over its own multi storey car park, is right...

The hotel is in easy walking distance to the pier, restaurants and playground. The balcony overlooks the bay, which is beautiful in the morning. The room was small but had plenty of space for the three of us also it was clean and had a mini frig and microwave. The staff was very friendly and helped us select a good...
