Good 6.0
Not worth the price especially with parking fees
Had to wait for check in, was told they would call when room was ready, went back in at 4:45 to inquire because storm came in and we had nowhere to go. Room was ready but no call. Elevator was really small, had to force cart to fit. Room small, but clean, nothing special. Beach chairs need to be rented first thing in the AM if you don't get down there really early you're out of luck! Pool very small and lots of families, no chance of getting a chair! Would not stay again.

Good 6.0
Stay was okay
Room was very nice. Telephones did not connect to the front desk. Had to request additional towels. Pool was closed by 8pm which was disappointing. Also had to pay a resort fee for the pool, which I never used. The resort fee did not include beach front chairs or umbrella. There was an additional $20 charge on top of the resort fee

Family Vacation
We stayed here for one night to get our family vacation started. The beds were comfortable and service was great. The condition of the resort could be improved. Rusted doors, slower elevator, etc. a bit pricey for what you get.

We’ll Be Back!
Perfect spot for our 5 night getaway. This was our first time at this location, and staying on Clearwater Beach. Friendly staff, clean and comfy room, great location. We had a “city view” with a perfect view of the construction site next door. I only say this for full disclosure. It wasn’t bothersome...we actually spent time on our balcony sipping drinks and watching them in action. Spring for the beach side if that’s not for you. :) Liquor store, grocery, and restaurants all right across the street with many more within walking distance...didn’t need a car. The ladies at the beach bar mix up some tasty beverages! Tip generously...they work hard! Get to the beach early if you want a cabana for the day. We spent 2 entire days parked there. It was glorious. My only “complaint” is with the location/access to the singular ice machine. It’s crammed into a small spot in the laundry “hallway”. After 2 days, we just grabbed a bag of ice and foam cooler from the store. I recommend this if you’re the type of traveler who needs more than a mini fridge provides. All in all a wonderfully relaxing stay! Looking forward to coming back next year!

Nice hotel...watch out for extra fees
Was not told there would be a $20 parking fee per night. A little pricey.
Shannon, us1 night trip with friends
Poor 2.0
The room was not clean and the hotel smelled of marijuana. It was so bad we only stayed for 3 hours and drove back home as we were local. I wish I could get my money back, as it was awful. Do not stay there.

The cleaning was not good the room had a dirty floor. There were also some completely unexpected extra charges such as $ 9 daily hotel charges and parking $20 daily also.
