The other hotels in this area make this one look very shabby!! However, it is clean, and the beds are comfortable, and it is right next door to Shepherd's, a very fun place for nightlife. The views from this hotel are spectacular, it is a good hotel, for a fair price.

Seriously I've never experienced worse customer service. We booked the hotel several weeks in advance, & my friend (the one that booked it) called to confirm our reservation & was put on hold without a hello or can you please hold or even a word. When they finally got back on the phone the guy says, "last name!" No hello,... More

The hotel is a little outdated but other than that it is perfectly fine, the rooms are very big and it sits right next to Shepard's Resort where my friend had her wedding. Everything is very close and overall it was amazing for the price.

The front desk clerk was rude, it had a terrible smell in the hallway as if people live there, the kitchen is a tad bit outdated, the door had been kicked in numerous times,the only good thing about it is the hotel next door.

This place has a great view. Very close to the pier 60. Jet ski, paddle boats and kayaks rentals are just next to the hotel. Decent stay if you are looking for a busy outdoor day as its in the main tourist area.

This hotel is not the greatest, however, it was exactly what we were looking for. It is prime location, has it's own little private beach and is less then a 10 minute walk from the main Clearwater Beach. It is small and old, however it seemed very clean. Staying at "cheap" hotels always makes me a little nervous of cleanliness,... More

GulfView Hotel was unbelievable. The view from room was amazing!Friendly staff! It had breathtaking views from the hotel room. Easy access to the main strip. With only a 10 minute walk to the beach. Restaurants close by. It was the perfect place to stay while in Clearwater.
