We checked into the hotel for a 4 night, 5 day stay. There was an administrative error that made the beginning of our stay very stressful but once it was resolved, we were able to enjoy this hotel. The bellboy staff member who welcomed us was very friendly. The room was beautiful! The perfect size for a family of 5. The room was very clean and overlooked the water. We were able to see dolphins swimming outside our balcony one day. The beds and sheets were clean and comfortable and so was the bathroom and living room area. The pool area was beautiful and well maintained. The staff at the little store/ cafe were very friendly. The lobby was clean and very comfortable. We were able to sit back and watch The Polar Bear Express movie with baked cookies left on the counter for guests to enjoy. We loved the proximity to Clearwater Beach. We could drive there or hop on the trolley (free by flashing our hotel key card). Although it was a bit cold, we were still able to enjoy the hotel amenities and the nearby beach at Sand Key park across the street and Clearwater Beach. The only amenity that wasn’t great was the guest laundry. It was in the building near the gym, by the pool. You can only access it by going outside. It was pouring and I needed to do laundry soon after we arrived. There is no cover and I got soaking wet getting to and from the laundry room- several times. There is no where to sit. The machines are hit and miss. Some were out of order and one dryer didn’t dry well. If it’s not raining, it’s not bad, but unfortunately we arrived after driving for two days and needed laundry done. In hindsight, I should have waited for the rain to stop. Overall, this is a great hotel, in a quieter area, just across the bridge from Clearwater Beach. We would definitely stay here again if returning to this part of Florida. Read less

The sun was shining and it was 80 degrees which probably accounted for the busy pool area with plenty of beverages flowing. I remember something similar many years ago but it's even better now.

The sun was shining and it was 80 degrees which probably accounted for the busy pool area with plenty of beverages flowing. I remember something similar many years ago but it's even better now. The suites are tastefully and efficiently furnished, the staff are excellent - without exception. At midnight I saw lots of people enjoying the entertainment in the bar and joining in from the sounds I heard as I walked by. The adjacent shoppes and boardwalk allowed us a gentle stroll along the waterside, enjoying some of Florida's natural beauty. Sounds like a brochure, I know, but it was all of that - refreshing, lively, fun, great people, and just everything we needed to escape from everyday stresses. Read less

All or at least most rooms have view of the gulf. Plenty of activities, pool is heated and if you like volleyball, cornhole, tennis, or even soccer, you are in luck. Sooooo much beach to use and the inside of the hotel is pretty as well. If you are a high level Marriott member, you will get access to the club on the 9th floor which has food and… Read more
All or at least most rooms have view of the gulf. Plenty of activities, pool is heated and if you like volleyball, cornhole, tennis, or even soccer, you are in luck. Sooooo much beach to use and the inside of the hotel is pretty as well. If you are a high level Marriott member, you will get access to the club on the 9th floor which has food and drink available 5-7pm and a continental breakfast in the morning. So, paying 250-300 is not a bad price, with all the freebies, including full bar! Restaurants on site as well. You cannot go wrong here. I even got late checkout! Read less

Compared to other hotels in the area, you can get this for a good price and it is awesome. Views of water out both sides of your room. Suites are nice. Pool is fantastic. Parking 15 compared to 30 at other places. Enjoyed our stay
