This is a good hotel with problems. They have been undergoing addition/construction and renovation for about 2 years and expect at least another 6 months. The noise and dust are (kindly) NOT GOOD. The location is at the far South end of Clearwater Beach, away from the beach and touristy stuff by about 4 long blocks or More to Mandalay...

Very nice place to stay!! Not really great for families with children if you love to go to the beach. No beach at the motel. You can drive to the beach. Looooong walk from parking to water at the beach. For older couples, great place to stay. It is on water, just no beach. Beautiful though!! We will come back...

I was extremely disappointed with this hotel. There is no direct access to the beach, the staff are not well trained or friendly (just average), the pool is small and dinky and the restaurant doesn't fair any better. All in all, it's a hotel I would avoid at all costs. two redeeming features. The valet people are extremely nice and...

The room has two bathrooms, 2 bunk beds, 3 TV's, kitchenette, separate living room with pull-out sofa with a door between for privacy. Room was very clean. Staff is great. Love it. I...
