Sea Captain Resort on the Bay
Travel Blogs from Clearwater
Well, here we are, back in the United States for almost 2 weeks now and enjoying every single minute of it. After spending a few days with Sebastien in Ft. Myers and catching up with him and his life, we ended up spending our Floridian time in Tampa and plopped our backpacks at our very good friends's house Keith and Diane who again generously welcomed us into ...
... I am a college sophomore, and just transferred to the University of Tampa. Talk about a beautiful campus! From the Minarets to the Hillsborough River, this campus truly is the definition of beauty.
Being that I am an only child, and my parents and I are extremely close, they decided to start over and experience life outside of New Jersey as well. We are currently renting in South Tampa until we can find a house, but in the three weeks I have been here, I can ...

Before heading to Busch Gardens, we enjoyed some of the amenities of our campground here outside Tampa. We are staying at a vast campground next to an even larger RV dealer. These guys sell all types of units, from tent trailers to luxury coaches. They have a restaurant at the dealership (free to campers) and seemingly hundreds of employees, all of whom ...
It is bright and sunny as the plane lands. Delores is waiting in the airport and thank God that I only have a roll aboard. Delores meets me at the airport, and we soon meet Suzi. It us amazing how little time affects these two lively and lovely ladies. We drive to St. Pete Beach and check into our amazingly cute condo! Delores did a great job finding a place right on the beach! We spend the day settling in and buying supplies, ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Sea Captain Resort on the Bay Clearwater
Since I relied on the information published on TripAdvisor to help us plan our trip, I certainly feel an obligation to comment on our recent stay at the Sea Captain, Clearwater, Florida (Dec 04-11).
I cried when we had to leave the Sea Captain Resort
The only bad thing about the Sea Captain Resort was saying goodbye. To make matters worse, two dolphins were playing in the harbor right off the lawn as we boarded the shuttle bus. The Sea Captain is like stepping back through a magic portal to simpler times. No pretension here, just clean rooms, friendly chatty staff with a smile and wave, game boards, fishing docks, big verandas, and a wonderful view. No spa, no valet parking, no big egos, no battles, no brats, no video games; lots of clean towels, lots of space, lots of smiles, lots of cute little families and relaxed retirees.
returned from sea captain on 11th november o4, wonderful weeks holiday, immaculate clean accomodation, superb location on waterfront, very close to beach and resterants, small peaceful little motel. Can't fault anything about the place and would not consider anywhere else in clearwater
White glove clean
Has a great pool area & is only about a block from the beach....You can walk to great seafood restaurants. Older place, but well maintained and extremely clean. I chose this from a review you had published & their web site.... The rooms are like they appear on their web.... I will go back..... It was great....
Made our whole Trip!!!
This place made a good trip an excellent trip! Super clean rooms, great location, and laid back atmosphere made the Sea Captain worth every penny. We were able to walk to the beech/pier and Captain Memo's pirate cruise without the worry of where to put the car. The King size bedroom with pull out couch in the separate livingroom made for nice private evenings, even while traveling with the 8 year old. Two 27" tv's and small fridge with kitchen area made for a very comfy home away from home. We will be back!!!
Best Little Motel in Clearwater
What an absolutely charming motel! We stayed a week in October. The weather was wonderful, the staff extremely friendly and helpful. They have a caretaker that is always working on the grounds and making everything sparkling. Can't think of one bad thing about the Sea Captain!
Well worth the money
After reading reviews for area places to stay in Clearwater we chose the Sea Captain. We were not disappointed. Pleasant staff, clean rooms, king-sized beds and two short blocks from the Gulf. Our children enjoyed swimming in the motel pool as much as they did the Gulf. We enjoyed watching the boats come in and go out from our balcony. Also - not only were we near the Gulf but also Pier 60, where the night time activities were great. Absolutely would stay here again.
Best lodging decision I ever made..
My husband and I usually stay at one of the larger hotel chain type lodgings, but thought we would try something smaller for a change..And I am so glad we did..The motel is directly on the Clearwater marina, and a very short block and 1/2 to the beach..you can even fish from their docks if you like..The rooms were spotless and the large open porches were wonderful with tables and chairs to eat a meal outdoors and watch the boats or just relax and converse with other guests...The atmosphere is very relaxed, pool and jacuzzi crystal clear, and the owners very accomodating..it is within walking to many restaurants and very close to the Pier..Obviously, can't say enough about the Sea Captain..I know my husband and I will definately be returning..
Wonderful Resort and Best location
This hotel was wonderful!! It's across the street from Pier 60 and the beach and across the bay is the marina where all the water activities are held. We enjoyed sitting by he hotel pier and watching the boats come in at night. All the larger hotels do not have much day time activity and have to walk down to our location. It was great for our teenagers because we gave them a walkie talkies and we were always in contact.The rooms are clean, and have a small stove/oven, microwave and fridge. Beautiful swimming pool and hot tub with free use of clean pool towels. They had croissants, orange juice and coffee every morning.We will definitely go back again!!!
Has it all
In my opinion, the Sea Captain has it all. We have visited on many
occassions and each room has been decorated to have its own
personality. The rooms were clean, with efficiency kitchens equipt with
microwave and refrigerator. The pool was sparkling clean and along side
there was a shuffle board court. or you could relax in the hot tub. A
view of the marina from our window with an occasional Pirate Ship
sailing by. The beach is a block away along with quaint little
boutiques and sovienier shops up and down the boulevard.
I would highly recomend this resort and will absoulutly return to stay for future vacations.
