Great if you have a limited budget!
Spent a few days there and had no complaints. Right across from the beach and very affordable. Nothing fancy, but the Adam's Mark is across the street, so we wandered over there and used their nice pool, tiki bar, etc without paying their ginourmous rates. Recommended for the younger traveler looking to get away, enjoy the beach atmosphere, and drink a few dozen PBRs while watching the sun set.
Really bad condition
We stayed in this motel for 1 day and found the condition is really horrible. The elevator is the smallest I have ever seen. The room is not clean at all. The air conditioner leaks water directly onto the carpet of the room all day and all night. I would suggest spend some more money to find a nicer place.
Stuck in elvartor
Was told this motel was on the beach but the beach was across the street. Didn't see the rooms. I only saw the elvevator. My daughter-in-law, 2year old grandson and I got on the elvevator but wasn't room for my son. The door closed and we were there for 15 minutes. Good my son couldn't get on for he was able to get help. Wasn't any way to call for help. The elvevator had been check in 2002. Went to another motel that was on the beach and we were all able to get on their elvevator.
Ok for college kids and seniors on limited budget
I stayed at this hotel twice in March 2004 with my wife and kids. The hotel is run downed somewhat and depressing if you go with a small family. I'd recommend staying at a more expensive place or somewhere off the beach at a better named chain. Our sink was clogged, rooms smelled, wallpaper was peeling, outlet was broken, beds were spongee, windows dirty, and the elevators were really small service elevators.
If you are on an extremely limited budget and you HAVE to stay somewhere, this would be ok.
Well after reading all hotel reviews for Clearwater Beach i decided on an "ocean view" efficiency here. The key word is ocean view. There are only 4 floors to this hotel and very few rooms face the ocean. The ocean is across a busy street and then beyond a public parking lot.
Difficult ocean view,but very few hotels are actually on the beach. The Marks Adams and Shepard Hotels face the ocean but have no beach or a rock breakfront. The place was borderline clean, needs updating and I did see ants. They also charga a daily fee whether you use the room safe or not. Staff was just OK, not this friendly crew portrayed in some the the reviews. For the price compared to others nearby it was acceptable.
Not good enough for the roaches
Stayed here: 1/11/04 - 1/14/04
They were supposed to have a crib ready for us when we got there. They didn't. We got there at 9:00 PM and had to wait until 10:00 PM to get the crib. The room needed major repairs: the bathroom door wouldn't close, the tub was very slick (we had to sit in the tub with our baby because she was sliding all over the tub), you had to slam the door shut which meant I would wake up the baby if we left the room, the non-smoking room had an ash try and reeked of smoke, and several lights wouldn't work. Our second night there it got down to 40 degrees and we noticed that the heat didn't work. We called on the evening day three because of this problem. The day manager said that she would get us a different room and call back. After about 30 minutes, we called again and she had left about 10 minutes before and did not tell the night manger. The night manager gave us a different room. The heater worked, it didn't smell like smoke, the bathroom door would shut, and the baby wouldn't slide in the tub in the new bathroom. The only issue with the new room was ants in the bathroom.
This is the first time I was ever tempted to check out and go to a different hotel. Calling this a roach motel would be an insult to the roaches.
Stayed for 5 nights in August 2003. Had a lovely Poolview room for a very reasonable rate (booked direct with Travelodge). Brilliant location just across the road from the beach. Loved Clearwater Beach and area around too, and will definitely return sometime in the future.
Good value, Excellent location
Just returned from a 4 day vacation (August 2003) at Clearwater Beach.
The hotel is a good value and has an excellent location. Rooms are clean and comfortable. The staff is friendly and helpful. Will definitely stay here if I visit Clearwater again.
Great location and value!
We obtained a great rate on this motel by booking direct with Travelodge online. Large room, very clean with everything working. Directly across from the public beach. Staff were polite and friendly.
I give this Travelodge a A+. The staff were very nice. The eff room met our expectations. We had an ocean view room which was fantastic. The room was very clean and neat. The neg were - the closet door was off it's track and the can opener was broken. The elevator was sort of creaky and flooring in it needed replacing. Plus we received this room for a very reasonable price All in all we enjoyed our visit and would return if we could get the same deal we had this year in 2003.

As big fans of blown glass art, I was excited to see the Chihuly Collection, also in St. Petersburg. We went there one day and while it is a little bit pricey, the collection is gorgeous. We took a ton of pictures, but they don't completely capture just how amazing these pieces are -- but you can get a pretty good idea. ...

That was five months ago and I still remember how excited Greg and I were to be outside the stadium when the area was in party mode. Detroit lost the series and they lost this opening game too. Toronto was behind in the first few innings but then got a grand slam. Final score was 10 – 3 for the Blue ...

There was a heavy police presence in town, so I decided to make my way back to the nearest Wal-Mart rather than risk parking somewhere else and getting woken up by a ...
