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...

Great location close to the beach and shops. A little over priced but everything in the area is. Room had plenty of space, microwave, mini fridge, oven, stove and minimal kitchenware. Decent pool and free shuffleboard, games, etc. Felt dated but clean.

June 2016 we stayed a week here at The Sea Captain resort. I'd done my research and this place was EXACTLY what we were looking for. The room was basic, clean and safe. The convenience to everything was of upmost importance and this place did not disappoint. We were able to walk everywhere. There is a marina on the property...

It's a nice hotel next to the bay. Unfortunately, I was put in a room that smelled musty and terrible. I opened the windows to try and air it out which helped. Then, that night I got into the king size bed and I couldn't believe it… It was 2 twin beds pushed together with a king size sheet pulled...

We have been going to the Sea Captain for years and recently it was bought out by the management of the bigger hotel behind it. The pool now closes with a deadbolt lock at 9pm, all guests are harassed about parking and strictly managed to 1 vehicle per room, no more continental breakfast served on holidays, rude employees working in...

Booked a stay at the Sea Captain for my anniversary and wife's birthday. Been several years since I stayed on Clearwater Beach. Had this hotel recommended to me by a friend. Had a nice King Efficiency room on the bay. This hotel is an old florida style hotel that is two story with only 28 rooms. I really enjoyed this...
