This property is excellent! The staff is extremely friendly, attentive, and helpful. They have chairs, umbrellas, floats, cooler, etc for you to take to the beach. Their shuttle takes you to and from the beach as you please. The valet staff is quick and always available. The pool is the perfect size for the property...great food and drinks available with a great staff! The rooms are clean, updated, and beds are comfy! We enjoyed our time in Clearwater and especially enjoyed coming back to the quiet of Sand Key. There are some great restaurants and shops right next door and a free shuttle runs to the main strip of Clearwater often. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this hotel. We went for a short getaway and enjoyed every aspect of the property. Read less

We were here for a business meeting. With that said, this is not a hotel I would pick if traveling for personal reasons. Too big. Too many families / kids.

We were here for a business meeting. With that said, this is not a hotel I would pick if traveling for personal reasons. Too big. Too many families / kids. Only amenity was the pool and that was very crowded (lounge chairs on top of one another). Plus, I'd prefer being on the gulf side and having direct beach access. The staff is awesome! All were very helpful, friendly, and wanted to make sure our stay was enjoyable. Kudos to Meli, our housekeeper ~ super accommodating and did a great job in keeping our room clean. And to Tyler, pool side server, he was always there when needed, friendly, and great attitude! The rooms were okay. We were to get a king and only got 2 doubles, we made the best of it. The idea of having gulf view and balcony on the inter coastal was nice; however, couldn't see or do much of the gulf view, being it was on the side with the walkway to the rooms and large high rises blocked our sunset views (April). The bathroom was SUPER small!!!. I liked the large shower but rest of the bathroom needs a makeover in design and size. Perhaps, when redoing bathrooms they could move the desk area over to the common area instead of in the bedroom. Beds were comfortable, as well as pillows. Plus, I'd agree with other reviewers, not very soundproof. We didn't dine in the restaurant so no comment. We did have food in the banquet area and it was average for banquet food. Another note concerning banquets is they need to have more than one bar / bartender for social hour before a meeting. Pool area was fine. I did not like how close all the pool chairs were to one another. Pool temperature was perfect. Size of pool was adequate. It was nice having pool side bar service. I do wish they wouldn't allow music played by others around the pool. There was a boardwalk attached to the hotel that had a nice array of restaurants and a couple stores (including convenience store). This hotel is located on the south side (over a large bridge) of Clearwater Beach and is not in the middle of all that's happening. It is quieter but with that said, you either have to walk, trolly, cab/uber to the main part of Clearwater Beach if you want to partake in events over there. Overall, our stay was enjoyable and I'd recommend this hotel if you are into larger hotels that are in a quieter area and not beach front. Read less
