Sunil Govind

I highly recommend staying at the Fenway Hotel, Autograph Collection It’s one of the best hotels As an Autograph Marriott Collection hotel situated right in front of the Gulf of Mexico, it’s within walking distance of Dunedin Marina and Main Street

We truly enjoyed the stunning views of the sunset from the rooftop bar plus the live jazz music in the lobby It was a relaxing experience to unwind in the pool area with a cold beverage in hand Overall, we truly enjoyed the hotel service and great amenities

Chris Brejak

From the moment we arrived until we left the entire staff was wonderful Not just wonderful as you would expect but helpful, happy, delightful It was clear they all liked working there and helping clients

The rooms were very nice, very clean and had everything you would need The location was a short walk to downtown and right across from the ocean, with great sunset views from the rooftop patio Get to the patio early for a good spot, it fills fast for sunsets Not the cheapest place to stay but worth it, we loved it BTW, the restaurant was excellent also

Keith Ryan

What a great fun hotel We had such a great trip and The Fenway was a big part of it There is fun stuff going on all the time

Great lobby bar Great rooftop bar Great restaurant The staff was amazing, everyone said hello, everyone asked how your stay was and I mean everyone- housekeeping, servers, front desk, well anyone you saw The rooms were modern and comfortable Our room had a well stocked bar in it The hotel is a half mile water side walk to town Lots of shopping, bars, and good food We plan on returning

This hotel was very clean and inviting The rooms were spotless and the common grounds were clean and welcoming The breakfast offered plenty of options for a complimentary breakfast and the staff was very nice

The front desk staff was willing to answer questions and always smiling and the breakfast staff was also very welcoming and had great attitudes and made kind conversationThe hotel was in a great location to easily access downtown Dunedin and we made it to Clearwater in 20-30 minutes I would definitely recommend this hotel if you would like a clean, friendly and affordable place to stay in the area

If I could give more stars I would! From the day before to leaving was absolutely top notch! Everyone was so nice and attentive to our needs and everyone greeted and had conversation with us! Room was beautiful and spacious! Location was 5 minutes from the beach, and the hotel breakfast was great! We will definitely return for our next stay!

Mark Stern

Comfortable place to stay My room was a little dated compared to the newer and refreshed Residence Inns (Not one USB port in the room

) Front desk staff were friendly and helpful The guests across the hall were partying and woke me at 1:30am A call to the front desk had them quiet down a bit Although it may just have been my room location, there was instant hot water at every faucet Breakfast was a good variety of food I’ll stay here again

Jake at the front desk is a great asset to your organization My wife and I checked in at about 6:00 pm on a Thursday with at least three other guests ahead of us on line and at least 2 phone lines ringing Jake handled everything and everyone professionally and courteously

The room was fine although the shade on the door to the balcony needs repair

Robert Cosme – Blood Hound

Kay the manager of the Candlewood Suites has been phenomenal! Excellent customer service and superb hospitality excellence is the bare minimum to describe my experience Thank you Kay, for your hospitality Professional and friendly

I give this hotel 5 stars for the staff alone The rooms are clean and modern I highly recommend this place

Robh693 H

Nice, clean hotel Up to date amenities, very large room with kitchenette Hotel is in a beautiful neighborhood and there are 2 very good restaurants in the same plaza

The only thing we didn’t care for was the very soft bed which left us both with sore lower backs, you actually have to struggle to get out of the bed There is no breakfast offered but there is a very good diner in the same plaza

Great location Walking distance to Dunedin’s excellent eateries and brewery’s Our cottage room was modern, having all the conveniences that we needed, including a corkscrew, mini-fridge and microwave

Everything in the room looked brand new and was sparkling clean Breakfast every morning was made to order from a selection of 2 items and always offered with juice and fresh fruit We will definitely return for another visit

Michelle Goff

What a wonderful place! My daughter and I took time for a quick mother-daughter get away From the moment we checked in we were laughing Rock’s sense of humor (sarcasm) is the best! We will NEVER stay anywhere else when in town

We loved exploring downtown with all the shops and restaurants Honeymoon Island is just a short drive away and we always find great shells there Rock and Michelle even had suggestions on the best times to go shelling And not to forget, Laura’s breakfasts are delicious!

Renee Firsdon

This place is a gem that will exceed your expectations During our stay we had the pleasure of staying in the Sunshine cottage Not only is the cottage immaculate, it also has everything within it to make your stay as comfortable as possible

The bed was super comfy and the decor compliments the room Breakfast was superb and served with a smile It is conveniently located within a short walking distance to the little town Dunedin which is a must see place I would highly recommend Beyond the Wall bed and breakfast if you are looking for that above and beyond experience

Ashley Persijn

We stayed here for a week and we enjoyed it The pool is nice, the hotel and spot it’s in is a little walk from restaurants and beach which is nice because it’s not to loud or crazy when you are relaxing in your room The kitchen was nice and it came stocked with dishes

The only complaint I have is they canceled our reservation due to an issue with my card but never told us We travel all the way from NYC and were exhausted, they were unable to give us the room we originally booked but did give us a small refund and gave us a different room I would have liked to have better communication with my reservation Other than that the staff was great and very accommodating, I will most likely stay here again

Koda Rose

Upon arrival it was a bit confusing to find the main entrance or lobby Check in was quick and simple I would suggest that the guest be given info on where the ice machine and laundry are located

The room size was perfect and allowed separation of adult and child spaces I had 2 teens and it would have made for miserable vacation if we had stayed in a regular hotel room The pool and outdoor area are nice, but we did have to ask for the pool to be cleaned though due to debris and lots of sand in the pool With a few updates and someone to attend to the pool area daily (vacuum, blow the sand off the cushions and clean up a little) they could have an amazing outdoor space Overall our stay was good and we would definitely stay here again If you decide to stay at Coconut Cove you MUST eat at the Italian restaurant next door!!

Korea Scott

Reasonably priced Room was nice and clean Fully equipped kitchen

Great location Only 6 minute walk to beach, restaurants and entertainment Locate trolly was right outside the front door WiFi was very slow and there are no elevators as I had my elderly parents with me and we had to walk 4 flights of stairs at a time Staff was kind Only complaint was construction of a nearby hotel blocked view Will definitely come back again

This is a really nice place for the price The rooms are very large (like a tiny apartment) and have really nice features such as Microwave, fridge/freezer, cups, silverware, and plates 2 full size beds, couch and dining room table

3 sinks total! Free 2 pretzel snacks and 2 little chocolate was in the kitchen area for newcomers which was quite niceThe bathroom is also very spaciousThe beds are quite comfortable, not hard like many other places They have a slight bounce to themService is pretty good although only available in the morning between 7-10am So if you need anything it needs to be requested during those timesThe main entrance area has a pool table, books and board games to check outIt also had a lot of nice outside activities, pool, pickleball, and shuffleboard, Cornhole etcReally think if you’re in the area you should definitely give this place a shot!

Lourdes Rodriguez

This is a great place to stay I booked 2 rooms The rooms are clean, no bugs, no bedbugs, no carpet so, no bad smell either

The facilities are great, they are pet friendly and even have a doggy park You have a pool and other amenities that are well kept The office administration was great, super friendly and understanding, always going above and beyond to make your one our stay even better Super closed to shops and restaurants and only minutes away from Honeymoon Island I am definitely coming back with my family and I recommend 100%!!!!Thank you for a great stay!

My husband and I were extremely pleased with our experience at this Airbnb The apartment was decorated great, and we were super comfortable Perhaps most importantly, the room stayed cool and bug-free the entire time we were there, despite it being in the 90s the entire trip

The Airbnb is also situated within walking distance from downtown Dunedin and is just a short 20-30 minutes drive from Clearwater Beach and Tarpon Springs We would definitely stay here again next time we visit the Tampa Bay area

I really like this place I enjoyed the clean hotel room and the affordable price Staff and the pool are very nice Great location

I only stayed here for a few days because I wanted to try it out before I would stay here longer and it was an absolute joy to be there Housekeeping and staffed really seem to take care of the hotel and make sure the sheets were amazing and clean They are the real stars of this hotel and deserve good tips The only negative that I have is that the laundry area was very dirty and poor lighting There are some situations where the hotel can use more security lighting

Sarah Nickles

I’m always scared of places my husband picks but this was a definite winner!! The room was spacious, clean and the AC was cold!! The pool area was very nice The housekeeping staff was the bomb!! We would leave in the morning to head to the beach and come back to fresh towels, a cleaned room and beds made Central location to the beach access and restaurants are within a short walking distance

Would definitely stay again Older hotel but I would highly recommendwe stayed in the two story building

Chanelle Burris

This hotel has a good location and I would have to say their bedding is very clean AC works fine The problem is it just doesn’t feel clean at all

The floors could use a good mopping and the bathroom already had hairs everywhere before using it The drain looks old and rusty The staff were helpful to provide more towels as requested which was nice of them But these towels I found there is a stain on itThere was no fan in washroom and stains on the couches and chairs Very oldOverall it was an okay stay and next time I hope to have more money to stay somewhere nicer

My wife and I had a great stay at Beso Del Sol! We had a great view of the water and watched some amazing sunsets Our room was clean and well furnished making it very comfortable Everyone was very friendly and helpful plus The Marker 8 had great food and drinks! Mia, who checked us in was fantastic

She made sure we felt welcomed and comfortable plus threw in a few great tips for local eats


Water front was beautiful Staff was friendly But they lied about what room we booked

Found out from one of the staff that they the people in charge do it all the time So fair warning if you book a room that supposed to have a view, separate living area from the bed room they’re lying to you It’s a studio room Other than that they stay was nice

Kaylianna Fisher

Overall our favorite part was the courtyard and pool It was very beautiful! The check-in employee was politeMy issues:When we showed up early from the flight at 11:30 we were told we had to wait until 3:30 to check in or we were going to be charged

I’ve never been charged for early check in at other hotels- they always accommodateWe stayed 4 nights and only had one set of towels provided No one came to clean/touch up or take trash or replace towels or sheets or anything the whole week we were there I had to go ask for more towelsThe fridge was really loud when running to the point we turned it off so that we could sleepThe lock on the door did not work because the metal piece of the lock was damaged so we had to use other safety precautionsThe bathroom windows on main floor (which is where we stayed ) are sketchy because someone could have looked right in and saw everything There are no covers Oh and the shower- we had to run the water for about 10-15 min for it to be warm/hot*Not the hotels fault but they should have at least notify customers that there was major construction going on that was disturbing

William Sailers

Had a 2 night stay to do some scuba diving with Tanks-A-Lot

location was perfectless than 15 miles from the boat dock The room was clean and newly refurbished The property had a Caribbean paint theme and was very clean and family friendly An awesome Mexican restaurant was within a short walk No complaints Mike is an excellent host/property manager

Sara Issa

Loved my stay here!! Quiet area, clean rooms, very cute courtyard and a really nice outdoor pool! My friend and I also accidentally had locked out key in the room and we didn’t arrive back to our room until 2am and Mike (manager? owner?) was so sweet and helped us day and night! Highly recommend this place if you need a nice place to stay!

Other than location this hotel sucks The rooms are gross The walls haven’t been painted in decades

There are dirt all over them The floors were beyond gross We had to clean our feet before we went to bed Both my daughters feet looked like they had walked on ashes We complained They sent a maid Pretty sure she mopped the floor with dirty water because they were still grossYa they have WiFi, buts it’s the cheapest window of all time Couldn’t connect in my own roomI do not recommend this place

Kimberly Wells

For the price, I expected a clean room, a MUCH more comfortable bed, a shower that had pressure, and a working pool light and fountain This place being fenced was nice, and the 2 block walk to the beach was convenient However, when the bed is horrendous, AND I found a used dirty towel under the bed, as well as a dead dried up black bug on the sheet, as well as only having a single clean towel and no wash cloth I was disappointed

Perhaps the owners should spend more on maintenance and less in large TVs that are viewed only from an uncomfortable bed Extra towels would have been nice as well

I don’t know why this place is rated as a “2-star hotel” because it’s so much better! I stayed here for 7 days and it was a good experience Kim at the front desk was so personable and warm, & I felt reassured that I had made a good choice She shared details about the property based on where my room would be, and even called to check if I was comfortable a few hours after I settled in

Every interaction with her after that was consistently friendly & pleasant My room was well maintained and very clean The A/C worked with zero issues and the WiFi was high speed connection Where do you get top-notch service like that at a “2-star hotel”?The pool & hot tub was sparkling clean, grounds well kept, housekeepers always around, no garbage left in the outside bins for long etc anywhere The spacious pool & gazebo area was actually one of the nicest I’ve seen at a hotel You can lounge around and not be on top of everyone elseI’d definitely stay here again

Isaac Small

Preface: I don’t often write good reviews For a more entertaining review you may look at others which I have writtenThis is a place where the trash cans are never full

The room was clean when I got there and the AC was cold When the AC quit working the maintenance man was knocking on my door within 10 minutes to swap it out… an ordeal which was over in 5 minutes The Concierge, Andrew, works until midnight and claims to be the maintenance supervisor, but he will tell you where to go and what to eat if you ask him It’s hard to find someone so committed to a hotel that they have worked there 20 years but Andrew has and it shows I once saw him swap out a refrigerator after 11pm after a guest complaint I heard rumors that the pool is excellent, the hot tub is world class and the free breakfast is one of the best but I never tried any of that What I found amazing is Ginger Ale in both vending machines and a vending machine with ICE CREAM The diner next door, Lenny’s, also deserves a visit The best part of the room is the patio, but the towels are also fluffy

Dorothea Burkot

I travelled solo and I loved the service at this hotel! It was clean, and you have everything you need in this hotel where it includes breakfast! I really liked, and there was fresh water infused with fruits that was made everyday! It is close to everything! I felt safe staying here I definitely will return! I do recommend this hotel

Awesome hotel location for our vacation as our plans went 15 hrs in each direction from this site Hotel staff was absolutely awesome to work with and very accommodating

Modest price for this hotel and location considering today’s prices Hotel is located in-between Clearwater and Dunedin (which is a hidden gem) and right across the waterfront Hotel is very clean and well taken care of Staff mentioned that the hotel is going through another renovation next year so prices may increase Highly recommend this hotel

He has this beautiful bubbly personality and so friendly and kind He is truly genuine and professional! I couldn’t have asked for a better vacation!!!

Adriano D’Angelo

solid 4 star stay More modestly priced and a short uber drive away from most of the things you want to do in the area

They also had rooms with pull out sofa beds which was perfect our group of six could each have a bed across two rooms Breakfast is included and while it’s not mind-blowing, they serve warm food which was highly appreciated Would suggest a few touchups like some dumbbells in the fitness center, some small fixes in the elevator, and making the bathroom fans work in the rooms However, it was clean, the showers worked decently well, and we paid less than many of the places in the area were charging This might not be a hotel for a romantic vacation, but for families or groups of friends needing a value stay more than they need luxuries, this place really did nicely

From check in to check out everything was excellent about our stay at this property We had a long term stay (2 weeks) due to renovations at our property in Clearwater and the hotel accommodated us and made it feel like home The room was incredible, large and had a huge balcony overlooking Mandalay Avenue and the Gulf allowing for spectacular sunset views

Everyone on staff was friendly from the valet team (who worked hard for us since we were in and out a lot!) to the mechanics (thanks for the help with the frisky AC unit) to the front desk crew (for being there for a morning or evening smile after a long day) A special shout out to Eric who was a bartender at the new rooftop bar as well as the lobby bar for the excellent service Most bartenders don’t take the time to learn a customer’s name let alone take the time to refresh a drink that’s melted a bit He went above and beyond and showed genuine interest in us during our stay which was appreciated – like meeting up with an old friend! Speaking of the rooftop bar, be sure to visit if your staying there! Unbelievable views all around! We will definitely be visiting again and will be sure this hotel is where we’ll call “home” againTo all visitors – just be aware there is a $29+tax Valet charge, self-parking is not an option but the Valet team were awesome and took the time to get to know us so it was easy in and out!

Bread new hotels (2021) are almost always a delight, and the Courtyard here has several things going for it on top Super clean, new smell, and modern styling And absolutely everyone we interacted with on the staff, from valet to desk to housekeeping, we’re great hires

That said, there are some peculiarities in the design and amenities that faced cost reduction instead of improving guest experience That said, you’re either picking this hotel because your first choices are sold out, or, you’re just supremely loyal to the Courtyard, business traveler-focused brandI can imagine the build quality of this hotel will wear in a couple years (particularly in a beach area), so enjoy it while you can Already saw some wear on the bathroom sink and the windowsWe ended up in the last available room last weekend, a 2 Queen Suite I’d design the room layout to be more functional, but spacious is definitely an accurate descriptorNo true ocean views here, but you can see it around the condos on the beach with enough satisfactionIf I’m being overly particular about a Courtyard, it’s because average costs for this one is in the $300-600s per night If a hotel charges 4-star hotel prices, I’d like to see 4-star amenities to go along Otherwise, you might as well pay the same amount for a true 4-star on the ⛱️Overall impressions were met, and I’d not hesitate stay here again if the main resorts on the beach were sold out again

The Courtyard made our little family reunion delightful despite freezing cold temperatures Everyone from the valet drivers to the front desk was pleasant and helpful They even upgraded us to a room with a view of the Marina – an unexpected surprise

The heated pool kept the kids entertained while the adults relaxed and enjoyed wine, beer, Irish coffee, and a great selection of appetizers Mark made sure we were always taken care of and we appreciated it very much I also used the gym during our stay and I have to say that it was the nicest hotel gym I’ve ever seen It also has a beautiful view of the marina The location of the property is about 2 or 3 blocks from the Pier with lots of restaurants, bars, shops, drugstores, and even Ron Jon’s within walking distance Everything was perfect and we appreciate the genuinely warm and friendly service from all staff members Thank you for a lovely weekend!

We had a great experience at this hotel The place was clean and modern They were a bit small for a family of four though

Every employee was friendly and welcoming The location is great with many shops and restaurants in easy walking distance We loved that the beach chairs were always available and no shortage of those That process and the ease of getting one is to be commended We fully expected to have to go claim them early and that is not necessary unless you want one in the first row The complimentary towel process was a breeze and made going to the beach or pool all the easier The pool area was nice but too small, a bigger pool and more shaded seating would have been preferred but overall it was a good experience with the pool The resort pool bar was great, the food was outstanding as were the various frozen drinks, etc i just think they should stay open later and have some live music at night, I think this is an opportunity being missed by the resort Overall, this was better that expected and we hope to return in the future! 🙂

Let’s begin with the beautiful resort it is clean and absolutely beautiful We were impressed with all of the complimentary personal items, bottles of water and chocolate upon night time turn down of your bed The pool is heated and very inviting

A free drink card and everyday events offered by the resort The staff is very pleasant and welcoming as if you were home The beach is just across the street and with a stay you get an umbrella and 2 lounge chairs or for a small fee of 10 dollars upgrade to a cannabis cover and 2 lounge chairs These lounge chairs are very comfortable,just relax under the sun and take a nice nap We were so impressed with the resort and wonderful restaurants you do not want to go home I can honestly say this was the best time I have had in a very long time Do yourself a favor and come and have the most wonderful experience ever, you won’t regret it I can not wait to come back I am very impressed the staff who was so calming and the resort is very relaxingA very happy and satisfied customer, Pamela Walsh

My husband and I spent our honeymoon week here and it was amazing! I read some reviews and was skeptical but it was wonderful The room and hotel were very clean The staff was very welcoming and always friendly

The valet were very quick and helpful The pool area was relaxing and the bar had wonderful food! So many shops and restaurants within walking distance! If you book any of the boat rides the dock is across the street from the hotel! Included in the resort fee is the towels for the pool and the chairs on the beach which was nice! Overall we really enjoyed our stay here and will most definitely return in the future!!

We were so pleased by this hotel and the location Our room was very spacious and had the best screened-in porch on the second floor, looking towards the marina Room service was a little confusing, as we weren’t expecting them until the 3rd day, but they came the first two days and then no more until checkout

This was not a big deal at all for us as we were able to easily leave our dirty towels and trash outside of our door and request fresh towels as needed All of the hotel staff from front desk, to housekeeping, to breakfast attendant were all very accommodating Free breakfast was a plus for us and it was decent We enjoyed the pool a couple of days as well The location to downtown Dunedin is the icing on the cake for me Walking distance to so many restaurants and shops There is also a park with playground for children right next door And a pier next to the marina that is such a nice spot to sit in the mornings or to watch the sunset We were lucky enough one morning to be able to watch dolphins Would definitely stay here if we are fortunate enough to visit this area again!

Amazing stay here!!! Cathy at the front desk was so helpful, funny and sweet! We ended up talking for 15 minutes at check in Our room was beautiful, spacious, comfy, nice showers and a private balcony Perfect location as well

Pool area was great and placed to get the most out of the sun Breakfast was also enjoyable and they have a proper coffee machine serving various options Highly recommend staying here On top of all this -Breathtaking sunsets every night

Rick Roach

Surprisingly not your average Best Western Awesome view looking over the water, 2 seafood restaurants and the yacht club Inground pool is clean

Our room was huge Even with the hot tub and king-size bed, plenty room for a romantic dance Free breakfast was sad Powdered scramble eggs, greasy bacon No sausage Regular coffee dispenser was not working so they had decaf coffee We were discussing that having fresh brewed coffee available would solve the issue

I’ve stayed here 3 or 4 times over the past few years and each time I was greeted with a smile at the desk, in the morning having a hot breakfast and friendly hard working cleaning staff I especially liked Cecil at the front desk when I reserved the room He was very helpful

Our room was sparkling clean with a to-die-for comfortable bed Also, kudos to the gal running the dining room, she didn’t miss a thing and it, too, was kept super clean Its a little pricey for a week long stay on a medium budget, but worth the stop Extremely walk-able & safe location

Perfect location for hitting all the restaurants, shops, craft breweries and clubs and lounges if visiting Dunedin for the “social” stroll through town Plenty of hotel parking The hotel is off the main drag and away from the hustle and bustle but still centrally located within minutes of everythingCheck in was a breeze and they are set-up with social distancing in mind (masks required in all common areas

The lobby area was clean along with the breakfast area The breakfast is free and includes eggs, meats, biscuits (breads & Pastries) dairy products and essentially everything you’d expect We found it very well done for a complimentary breakfastWe found our queen double room to be of adequate size It was clean and absent any commercial cleaning fragrance smells There are plenty of charging outlets for electronic devices The bed was comfortable (frim – medium) with 4 standard size pillows on each bed The bathroom was adequately sized and clean The AC unit was a bit noisy but easily tolerable and did not interrupt sleepOverall, great stay and if back in Dunedin, I’ll be staying here again
