St Augustine to Clearwater Beach

We set out on our Journey to Clearwater quite early this morning. We figured the rather than spend time in this beach resort, we might just as we'll move on to the other and spend more time there. So we packed up early, failed to get our real destination into the Sat Nav and set off with a close enough destination plumbed in and set off. We were …

Finally, we're in Florida!

The house, which was called the Little White House, was a very simple cottage. It was here that he suffered a cerebral hemorrhage on April 12, 1945, that ended his life.

We've done lots of road trips and never have we had the challenges of just getting away from home as we did this week. We were supposed to leave the 1st and finally got away the 4th. First Isabelle came home from a missions trip in Mexico with lice. The delousing requires a lot of laundry; in the midst of that the wash machine broke.

After that the hot water heater didn't want to be upstaged ...

Having managed to scale down to 1 suitcase and getting treated to a Towncar to the Airport, my flight to Miami is delayed! I'm off the Wagon for this vacation so it's off to the airport bar I go! Thanks for the ride Carlos. The delay turned into re routing me through London and a total loss of a full day in Milan. Luckily during my Heathrow layover Nessie came to the ...

... in returning to the Park, we and the Navigator, showed ourselves new places to find our way. We intend to take the coach back and get gas. It shouldn't be so busy there early, before the store opens. Gas around here sets a new record for us, so far. We've seen some for as high as $3.70 a gallon, with the current low of $3.48. It's a good idea to plan for travel in your retirement. We knew that and now it's even more evident. It ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Sheraton Sand Key Resort Clearwater

    Family Friendly

    from

    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!

    Not Good for Couples without kids

    from

    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.

    Our room was listed as a balcony room with a view of Sand Key Park.

    What our view really consisted of, was of the tennis courts and the parking lot. Our maid did not show up on the first morning of our stay.

    She also did not show up to the room that our friends were staying in just down the hall. When we called the front desk to complain, they asked if they should send her up right away. Since it was well after 3:30pm and we all wanted to shower and dress for dinner, we declined and asked to have fresh towels brought up. They also informed us that if we wanted "early" maid service, then we should have notified the desk at check-in. So, if you want your room cleaned before 5:00pm, make sure to ask for "early" maid service. The beach is beautiful but it is a mile hike to get there. So, if you plan to drink at the beach, you will have quite a walk to the restrooms each time. Also, the beach chairs and umbrellas are a separate charge. For 2 chairs and an umbrella, the cost is $20.00 for the day. Don't expect to get a good chair at the pool unless you get to the pool and tag your chair by 7:30am. So, set your alarm clock. That's what everyone wants to do on vacation, right?---get up early via an alarm clock and run to the pool to tag a chair. The pool and hot tub were always crowded with kids splashing and screaming. We made an attempt to sit quietly in the hot tub around 10:30pm one night and were surrounded by a dozen teenagers and a handful of 8 year olds that liked to chat on and on. On the positive side, the resort is very clean, the location is nice ( just a 25 minute drive from Tampa airport). We rented a Ford Explorer and took trips around the area to see the sites and dine. We will probably go back to the area, but will stay somewhere that is less 'family friendly".

    Great PLace

    from

    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!

    Two Thumbs Up!

    from

    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!

    from

    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!!!

    Ouch!

    from

    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

    from

    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.

    Loved It!

    from

    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.

    Great Place

    from

    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!

    Overrated!

    from

    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.)?
