... house in Seven Oaks. The week just simply flew by, between errands and visiting with friends. Just a delightful time all around under the beautiful Floridian sun!
Now, Paul and I are back on the road on our way to Ocean City, Maryland where we are scheduled to arrive on the 28th... We are very excited to yet again stay there for the next 3 months or so ...
Being that this is my first blog, I figured I would share my most recent "travel" experience.
Three weeks ago, I moved for the first time in my life. I am a Jersey Girl at heart, born and raised, in the same house in fact, and except for traveling, have never lived elsewhere. Growing up in a small town sucked! I always hated having nothing to do in my town, and having to drive quite a distance to go shopping, walk around a cute town, or even go to a decent ...

... than Dean. In fact, she got completely soaked on one ride and then got soaked again on another ride. It took her more than four hours to dry out.
We were glad that they closed the park for the day at 5:00. This gave us a chance to gat back to the campground and pool after haircuts and some shopping. Off to see Mickey and Minnie tomorrow.
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 Sheraton Sand Key Resort Clearwater
The Sheraton Resort is very family-friendly, clean, and great all around. We just returned from a four day stay with our two sons - age 11 and 13. The resort allows the kids to splash and jump in the pool and act like kids on vacation should. Our room was cleaned quickly each day before noon. The food at the Mainstay Tavern was great. We had planned to visit Clearwater Beach and St. Pete during our stay, but our family loved the Sheraton so much we chose to stay at the resort two days out of our four day stay... never did get to Pier 60!
My husband and I stayed at this resort with another couple in August of 2003. The rooms were very clean and the food was adequate. However, if you like a quiet and serene getaway, this is not the resort for you.
I took my family here for 7 days. It was a great get-a-way. Swimming at their pool every day, watching the sunset down on the ocean every night. I recomend renting an umbrella down on the beach. Try the jet ski and para sailing on the beach as well its the same price as all of the other spots so no need to look further. We went over the bridge to clearwater for a few evening on pier 60. If you have teens or are still party'ers you would want to stay over there. If you have kids and want to be close but not to close...The Sheraton was great!
I am glad I changed my reservation to the Sheraton Sand Key Resort after reading a review about the Quality Hotel that was posted a couple of weeks before my vacation. The Sheraton Sand Key is definitely a classier place! We liked the fact that this hotel is very close to the busy part of Clearwater Beach yet separated by a bridge so that it wasn't that crowded. We stayed for 3 nights during the first week of June 2003. We paid a little more per night ($20) than the rate I was quoted for the Quality Hotel, but something told me that the Quality Hotel was all about staying on the beach at a low cost in a somewhat cramped facility. We'd rather pay a little more for a nicer place. This hotel definitely caters to business people, so you might be surrounded by more cigarette and cigar smokers around the pool than you'd like, but those people seemed to clear out by Friday! The room we had was a regular hotel room (not a suite) and was nice enough. The pool was not huge, but a nice size. And lastly, I did have to bring my flip-flops with me while walking on the beach, because sometimes you could not get past without stepping on shells and they hurt my bare feet! This is the first and only time we have been to Clearwater Beach and we were pleased with this hotel!
Absolutely Loved It!
We stayed at the Sheraton from 7/7/03 to 7/10/03 and we loved it! The resort itself is VERY clean and spacious, the pool and beach area are great. The staff is wonderful and very friendly and accommodating. We dined at all of the restaurants during our stay and loved them all. The food was great and well worth the price, not to mention the service we received. The guest rooms are very nice and well maintained, very clean. We are already planning a return trip without the kids! We wouldn't stay anywhere else. This resort is HIGHLY recommended!!!
My wife and daughter stayed 3 nights here over the 4th of July weekend. The resort overall was very nice, especially the pool/beach area, however, the room we were given was very small and confining. The biggest complaint was that my wife tripped and my daughter cut her foot on the balcony's sliding glass door guide (metal) that was raised about 3 inches from the floor; a very dangerous situation which could have been much worse!
Great place to stay
MY family and I stayed at the Sheraton Sand Key in Clearwater in June of this year...we found the service to be excellent on all levels and the hotel itself to be clean and spacious. The pool area is quite crowded however so of you plan to spend your time there, get there early. The beach is beautiful, and dolphins are daily visitors on this stretch of sand. Plan on eating in the hotel at least once, the restaurant is top rated for good reason and offers excellent service at all meals. We also stayed at the Radisson across the street which is nice, but in my opinion - spend a few more dollars and stay at the Sheraton. It's more convenient and offers a touch of luxury.
My husband and I stayed at the Sheraton Sand Key for 2 nights and thought it was a fabulous place. We had a terrific view of the pool and gulf from our very clean and comfortable room. The staff was very helpful and accomodating. The pool area was very spacious with sun and shade. The beach was a great place for collecting shells. We did prefer going to clearwater beach for sunning and walking at sunset as the sand was not so filled with shells. We did not eat at the resort. Our stay was everything we expected it to be and we were very pleased.
This is a very clean resort and the staff is helpful and friendly. The rooms were clean and newly decorated. The food is better than average for a resort. My only advice...take a cooler down to the beach because it's a long walk. They do have someone to deliver drinks, however. We stayed there with two kids and we all just loved it!
It seemed as though you were either tipping or paying for something every 5 minutes. Rooms are small and not worth $194/night. Everything in hotel super exspensive. $2.00 for a bottled water (12oz.)?
