I am taking the time out of my busy day to share my amazing experience while staying at this Marriott. As soon as I arrived at my room 414 I realize that the blinds were open and I tried to close them and I couldn't! I tried to ask for help from any of the staff members and there was Linda and I asked her to help me with this issue as I was afraid I might damage anything. She was so hospitable and eager to help me immediately and she fix this issue for me. She cleaned my room to perfection and I am so grateful that she is working in this hotel and it's a valuable asset to this property. Since I was alone and didn't know much about the area both Michael Keating and Rob Williams were so knowledgeable and very helpful. Michael helped me with the trolley information and Rob took me to the beach very very early in the morning. Rob have the most positive attitude and he loves what he does. I could clearly see that he is the biggest star. His personality shines as big as his smile and he made me feel so safe taking me at the beach and bringing me back at the hotel. He made me feel as if he was my big brother protecting and keeping me safe. And to me safety means everything especially because I always travel alone. Cassandra was very interactive and gave me compliment about my shoes and even though I was not a guest at the restaurant she made me feel welcomed and she took her time to acknowledge me and I appreciate her so much. At last Samantha the front desk manager took her time to listen to all of my bragging about the great service provided by everyone above and wrote down everyone's names that I have encounter during my stay as well as being polite , understanding and so professional. From all my heart I thank each and everyone of the rock stars that made my stay so pleasant safe and I am so eager to come back again at the near future. I hope that everyone will be recognized by going above and beyond because they truly deserve all the recognition for all the hard work that they do everyday. Thank you. Read less

From the moment we arrived each and every person who took care of us went above and beyond. From the valet to the people who checked us in to the people cleaned our room to the amazing servers who waited on us at the pool had the best attitudes which made our stay all the more enjoyable. In todays world those customer service skills are lacking. Our last night here we dined at the Watercolour Grill, our server Lori was extremely knowledgeable gave us great suggestions, the steaks were out if this world and the view of the intercoastal was breathtaking! We are locals so we will be dining at the Watercolour Grill often. A big thank you to the Manager who brought us a bottle of wine to celebrate our anniversary! Clearwater Marriott you should be very proud Read less

Just arrived yesterday evening. Booked a room with 2 queens bed and they gave me one with one bed only. Luckily it was changed quite quickly but no nice when you are traveling with kids and you need to change back and forward. I booked it via Booking.com with breakfast included. At the reception, they only included the breakfast for 2 adults and 2 kids. None of it is mentioned in Booking.com. You can hear your neighbors as they were in your room. The air conditioner is making so much noise that I felt to have an airplane in my room. I turned it off more than once but it just went on again and it was so cold that my son got fever during the night. I used to go to Hilton and wanted to try Marriott for once. Definitely not a Hilton level. Still have few days to stay here , so my family and I will try to enjoy it Read less

The views are amazing! Apparently all rooms face the bay, the pool was incredible! All the staff from check in, bell hop, beach buggy, bistro attendant, pool bar were superb!

The room was comfy and clean. Sand key beach is less crowded than clear water beach and much more relaxing. The trolley takes you across the bridge to the Clearwater side. I can’t say a negative thing about this hotel. I would recommend it to all my family and friends. Management should give all staff kudos for excellent service with a smile!! We will be back!

The location was great-near the beach and very quite. The staff was very pleasant. The hotel needs to be updated. The rooms are very small, there was carpet on the floors, there was no hand soap readily available, and the atmosphere was very moist. MAINLY it was never mentioned that this was an outdoor motel (no enclosure between lobby and guest rooms). I hate that cheap motel feel. BUT MOST IMPORTANTLY THE HOTEL SMELLED LIKE ROTTEN EGGS. The swamp behind the hotel had a bad stench, which made the room smell. Also, the pool space was nice but smell bad has and all the patio furniture was covered in bird poo. It's a hard pass for me on this hotel. Also, I upgraded my stay to include breakfast-it was so not worthy it. The food was horrible. Read less
