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.

We stayed at this hotel at Christmas in 2012, and although the hotel was a bit outdated, we found that we had all that we needed in terms of autonomy. Our room came with a balcony facing the beach (from which, we watched a fantastic concert taking place a few buildings down the road). There was a little kitchenette in...

Great rate and on the water it stated...I was impressed with being so close to Peir Park 60 but the rooms lack cleanliness and need updating. For the pricing they charge for non - discounted rate bookers...Im sure this is possible. It is more of an efficiency but housekeeping was horrible. Did not replace my towels that I used. Bed...

I called to hold a room in case we needed one. Was not informed of any hotel cancellation policies. When I called back an hour later to say we didn't need the room. They charged me the full amount!!! Extremely dissatisfied with hotel staff and I was treated on the phone. When visiting this area again, I'd rather sleep in...

I ended up cancelling my second night here during my first night when at midnight the blast of music from the property next door was so loud I could feel the vibrations. I had read other reviews say you couldn't hear the music once the balcony door was closed but I could not only hear it still, I could feel...

Great if you need a bed for a night. Would not be suitable for families or extended stays. A strange smell can be found in the hallways and the elevator. The bed was very comfortable though. The staff was nice but not very professional. Overall it is a place to crash, not to stay.

Being on the water in Clearwater the price was good. I've read reviews about housekeeping not cleaning, our room was cleaned daily and the front desk was always helpful and friendly. Yes its not the most updated hotel like others on the block but its by far not the worst either. We enjoyed our stay here. Walking distance to anything...

No frills but just what we needed and at a great rate! Private beach, private pool and hot tub, small kitchenettes in each room, balconies (only some with a view), perfect view from the beach, awesome location right on Clearwater beach with lots of fun activities, good bars, and restaurants in walking distance. We'll be back! Note: The new building...

This was the worst place I have ever stayed. The room smelled like a dirty wet dog. The elevator was so small it could only hold 4 people and it was the only elevator in the place. I'm not sure how that passed code on a 5 story building. The pool was the size of a large hot tub. There...
