I'll start with the only real negative - it's not cheap. We could have had a room in the Hyatt or Hilton for a similar price (some cheaper in fact). And i'm sure they would have provided mod cons and luxuries etc some people may like. If that's you, I probably wouldn't stay here. Sea Captains Resort is quite old... More

Stay was perfect, family had traveled here for 2 decades. Ashley was always accommodating and pleasant. Can't wait to return and escape from snowy Michigan to this hidden paradise. March will be here before we know it.

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... More

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.... More

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... More
