For the money $88 a night wasn't expecting much. Nice room-great bed! Had a balcony that looked out onto the parking garage next door but hey! $88 a night on the beach. Heated pool and hot tub. One parking spot per room, by the evening every spot taken as the hotel was full up

I can agree with other reviews, that some not all of the hotel is outdated, and when we mean outdated, it may need some cosmetic work, to keep some people happy. Considering i don't walk the halls for 24 hours or stay in the room and cook all day, then the hotel was satisfactory. I did have 3 great nights...

Well we though at first sight.. it is ocean front resort.. but this is not. Clear water beach is somewhere .8 miles from this place. Overall stay was good... room was clean and fresh. Sand key park is also near by.

Possibly the worst hotel I have ever stayed at. The hallways smell horrible haven't been updated in a very long time. Staff was nice but would do nothing without manager who is MIA and won't return calls. Pick another place.

Nothing fancy about this hotel. Eric at the front desk was very nice, real people. We are full time RV living 2 hours away. Came down to Clearwater Beach for the day and decided to stay the night. Nice resort next door to have drinks and dinner. They had a live band I could watch from my balcony! Good Buy!...

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,...

The hotel is a little outdated but other than that it is perfectly fine, the rooms are very big and it sits right next to Shepard's Resort where my friend had her wedding.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