Great little motel on the beach Two minutes away from the ocean Rooms are not too big, but clean and cozy

Staff is nice and friendly Free coffee in the morning (they knew i wanted decaf, and were making one every morning specifically for me, which was nice) They also have a clean and heated pool, and a roof where you can get some tan and a view Definitely a good place to stay👍

nancy stella

This was the nicest hotel I’ve stayed at in Clearwater Beach It was so clean The staff was accommodating and very friendly

They have free WiFi It’s just steps away from the beautiful Clearwater beach There are really nice restaurants right in the parking lot Parking and towels were free and the rental beach chairs were the cheapest around They have a really nice sunset balcony and a clean pool There are 3 floors but no elevator but you just take your suitcase up once and done I couldn’t have stayed in a better place

Jerry Thomas

5 stars all the way! We had a second floor room and had a spectacular view of the gulf The service was exceptional from the front desk clerks to the housekeeping staff even the parking lot attendant Perfectly located just past the crowded and loud shop/restaurant district

The beach is literally steps from the hotel and the on site restaurant is directly on the beach You can’t beat the sunset views But I think the best thing was the live music stopped exactly at 9:30pm each night so you can enjoy a quiet evening Will definitely return!!

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

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

Sherryl Santos

We had a nice room with a beautiful view of the Bay The rooms were clean and had firm beds (if you like that), the location was great, and it’s just across the street from the beach There are plenty of restaurants, bars and shops you can walk to only minutes away

There’s even a restaurant upstairs which I didn’t get to take advantage of, but I heard it was great Also, the front desk staff were friendlyThings I didn’t like:It took a while for us to get into the parking garage, because of the amount of traffic there was the afternoon that we arrived Once we got to hotel, the parking was a breeze Their check-in lobby was a little small In order to get to the lobby you need to take the elevators a few floors up from the ground floor The hallway carpet on the way to our room was a little warped It might be due for a replacement Other than the above mentioned, everything was greatI would recommend staying here, at least 2 nights

Paul Jordan

So we just checked in a couple hours ago and will be here until Tuesday so I will update this review but… the young woman who checked us in was awesome

Help us with extra towels, explained the services, and was a great first impression The room is amazing Corner room with a big balcony looking right at Pier 60, and three side windows facing the beach also Very big room, very clean and bathroom/shower very clean One drawback so far is water pressure but good hot water Went up to the rooftop bar and had a Gin and Tonic and it was very lively with great view of the beach I will update but for now this is looking good

Chris Hajek

Hotel is in a fantastic location! Just across the street from the beach Staff at check-in was extremely helpful in fixing an issue with the booking site we used Warm breakfast was surprisingly good

Room is a little out dated but not enough to distract from the other great qualities of this hotel We even were able to watch the pier fireworks from our bedroom window

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

Christian Southerland

Yall this hotel was so amazing!! The Hotel was clean, nice, wonderful complimentary breakfast, so quiet and perfect location and price!!! However what really made the stay absolutely divine

was the staff! Jeremy, was so amazing he was so friendly and helpful This man went out of his way to make sure we were happy and pleased with our Stay! 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

I could write a full paper on how much I adore this quaint place we (family of 7) called home for 4 day We stayed in the bigger suit room 105 and it had 2 bedrooms: one with 2 queen beds and the other room had a king sized bed There are 2 couch sleepers down stairs, which this place could easily accommodate 10 people

There are 3 porches One one the water, one balcony upstairs overlooking the water and lower porch, and a front porch that has a view if the pool, of you have little that need to be watched We can via train and didn’t bring beach items like chairs, umbrellas, ect They have a selection of chairs, umbrellas, wagons, toys, at a first come first served basis and best of all, it’s free Terrie (I believe her name was) is a doll She took suck good care of us Our train didn’t leave until 5:20pm, check out was 10am She let us use the pool hang out until we left for the train The best part of this gem is the Jolley trolly stop is right in front of the place You pay $5 a day and it makes stops allllll over Clearwater and will take you practically every where, aquarium pier 60 and all You can avoid the crowds but still get to the “main strip” with into a 10 min walk (it’s quite the stroll to do wvery day with 4 kids under 10) or hop on trolley ride Kids 8 and under are free to ride!!! Sonwe paid $20 to ride infinitely all day So worth the investment The convenience of the trolly and being away from the crowds makes this hidden gem a perfect vacation spot for families especially those with kids I highly recommend this place and i am kind of relictant to leave a review because I selfishly want it to remain hidden The home like feel draws you in It is very clean and they have all the amenities you need with a full kitchen, laundry, and 3 bathroomsyou read that right, THREE FULL BATHROOMS! My kids and mother in law could all take showers at one time and there was no waiting for eachother to get out We were able to wash our clothes before leaving and that was nice not to have to worry about laundry when we got home Over all the place exceedes my expectation I rarely leave reviews and this place deserved every second of my time taken to write this

jill piecha

This property is a vacation rental That being said if you’ve never used a vacation rental before know that you are started with the basic paper towels, toilet paper but then you need to go shopping! I recommend insta cart as you may not even have a bottle of water in hand and we chose Publix as they were quick delivery, and good selection online The staff here is very helpful with everything from checking in, shopping, site seeing, things to do, etc

This property is ONLY a 3 block walk to the beautiful clearwater beach ! ENJOY

This hotel made my recent trip to Clearwater the best experience ever! Very quiet and tucked away with breathtaking views of the bay! The room was immaculate and it smelled great There was a toaster, coffee maker, microwave, and fridge available and they were all clean and in working order Sam at the front desk is an absolute sweetheart! I’ve already booked for a week in August and am very excited about returning!

Vivian Olsen

Everything was excellent

the manager, Sam, was helpful, always pleasant and accommodating The rooms were spotless and the suite we had was huge with everything we needed and an amazing balcony overlooking the marina The location was great, away from the main drag but close enough to walk to the beach restaurants and attractionsDefinitely 5stars all the way around and we will be back! Thanks Sam for making our stay so pleasant!!

John Rasmussen

Sam is wonderful She is so attentive and friendly Really makes you feel welcome

We’ll give her 10 stars! On the southern tip of Clearwater Beach, Chart House offers a quiet Mecca out from the busy downtown area, yet close enough to walk to Rooms are clean and comfortable Sit by the bay and watch the boats or on the extra large balconies and enjoy the peaceful atmosphere We are definitely going backJohn and Mary Ann

My husband and I feel so fortunate to have found Blue Bayou Mary Beth is a fantastic host and an even greater person She is warm, funny, friendly and so accommodating

Her inn is beyond beautiful and you can see it’s transformation was a labor of love Mary Beth was so kind as to let us upgrade to a king bed room since the circumstances permitted it I can’t say enough about how much we loved our experience at Blue Bayou In addition, the inn is super close to everything in Tarpon Springs, including town and the sponge docks Thank you Mary Beth for a wonderful stay at Blue Bayou!

Caroline Elliott

The Blue Bayou Inn is fantastic, it’s located walking distance to restaurants and shops in the historic district of Tarpon Springs The inn itself is nicely restored and has a wonderful porch to sit out on Mary Beth is one of the nicest people I have ever met and went out of her way to make us feel comfortable during our stay

Thank you! Hope to stay at this lovely B&B again soon

Hazel Kuhlman

Blue Bayou Inn is a must if you are visiting Tarpon Springs This forever will be the place we stay when visiting the area! Our host Mary Beth was pure joy, and made everything thing so effortless not to mention she made a mean croissant breakfast while we were there! The room was impeccable, no detail left to wonder, and comfort to the hilt! This place is filled with a lot of love and Mary Beth emulates it! Walking distance to everything this quaint town has to offer 10/10

Brian Griffin

Very nice hotel and stay Nice views if you get gulf or pool front Service was great

Only issue was breakfast We paid over $1000 for 2 nights and they charge for breakfast Not only do they charge but the breakfast is very poor!!! No bacon no sausage no biscuits no eggs Just instant pancakes cereal and fruit If you want a good breakfast, you have to walk over to the next hotel Also got disappointed by the edge restaurant on the roof Says they close at 12 I took my family at 10 We sat and sat until I went to get a waitress and was told “oh our kitchen is closed” Bummer But other than the breakfast and dinner the hotel was a nice stay

Leah Laprise

Very nice vacation spot and everything in walking distance Love the bar by the pool as well as the rooftop bar Would definitely come again

Only thing I’d change is the music at the pool plays the same songs on repeat every day, so it would be nice to mix them up The floor by the pool also gets really slippery and we saw some people slip multiple times

ell eyo

I’m incredibly dissatisfied with my stay at the Edge Views from the room are not as described, and the room in itself felt incomplete Overall cleanliness was good, but the shower had absolutely no pressure at all! I did not feel clean for the entire trip because of the way the shower was, couldn’t even get my chin-length hair completely soaked

My overall issue with the hotel is customer service Most of the staff were incredibly dishonest and condescending, and felt overall hostile I believe this would have been a great hotel to stay at if it wasn’t for these things It’s in a very cool location and the pools are nice, I guess that just ruined it for me

I would rate our stay at the Fairfield Inn & Suites 20 Stars if I could They couldn’t have been any more accommodating! We were able to check-in early, which was awesome We stayed in a junior suite which, was spotless and the bed was ridiculously comfortable

The towels were actually normal sized and so soft The staff, every last one of them, we’re so nice and super helpful And, we got breakfast to boot! Granted, there are a number of less expensive options in the area but, the Fairfield Inn & Suites is proof positive that you get what you pay for!!

Adrienne Crim-mcmorrow

The hotel had a great breakfast and breakfast staff Housekeeping skipped cleaning our room even though we were out for the day, which was a bummer, especially because when the room wasn’t clean visually, the musty smell of the room seemed all the more gross The smell was mostly likely from the AC unit leaking onto the carpet, because I could hear dripping water after it was running for several minutes

Amanda Hocker

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!

Michael Moses

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

Melissa LaNinfa

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!

Great resort for a family with kids although the rooms are a little on the older side All the people are very friendly and professional You’ve got tennis, golf, and several small pools with an overall relaxing environment

There’s a driving range next to the main clubhouse by the South course We played South, Island and Copperhead courses – and the club services team moves your equipment around to each course ahead of time Super efficient!

Ursula Cunningham

This place was spectacular!!! I didn’t get to enjoy the 6 pools, nor golfing but we will be going back in October The room was very nice, it was like home away from home We had a kitchen, living area, nice room and the bathroom was very nice as well

Going back to the kitchen, it had all the appliances and dishware needed to cook I thank God for my husband, for picking out a wonderful place for the second part of our vacation! ❤️❤️❤️

D.R. O’Hara

I loved the condo I stayed in Great WI-FI, beautiful property As an Airbnb renter, I feel like there is no respect shown to visitors who spend thousands over their stay

I felt like a prisoner in my very expensive rental Innisbrook would benefit from issuing a pool pass for guests, especially those who spend over $100 at a restaurant built right next to the pool Perhaps a lower membership package, temporary, allows pool(s) or pool Honestly you are accosted if you go in the pool as a renter and are forced to exit It is scary I spent 8 days inside taking occasional walks and ordering in I came to watch golf and go in the pool, considering there are several Are no pools for guests? ugh Sorry I feel like I wasted money that could have been avoided had management addressed the concerns of several guests who posted prior I am not spending thousands of dollars to take a dip It is ludicrous

Loved this place! The rooms are nice, large, clean, and recently updated The pool is great with plenty of space and seating, plus it is surrounded by 3 bars – bonus! Food and drinks at the bars & restaurants are priced right They have an awesome beach front stage that plays live music from 3pm to 12am Sun – Thurs

Music goes until 2am on Fri & Sat The staff is super friendly and accommodating The private beach is small, but beautiful, private and not crowded They promote and partner with a car service called Free Rides USA where the drivers work for tips – we found this to be super awesome and helpful to get around town quickly and affordable!! 5 stars all the way around!

I can’t say enough great things about Shephard’s Beach Resort!! From the moment my daughter and I pulled up we were greeted with a smile from the valet gentlemen, and the front desk Our room was amazing Beds are very comfortable, huge shower, and an amazing balcony

The sunsets are absolutely stunning! The pool is very nice and from there you can walk right out onto the beach We watched boats go in and out, had fabulous drinks and absolutely amazing food I can’t thank Shephard’s Beach Resort for making my daughter and I first time seeing the ocean the most amazing experience ever My husband and I plan to go back in November for our anniversary

This hotel looks older from the outside but the interior was updated and the rooms were cleanAmenities: There are a couple restaurants on-site, a small convenient store where you could pick-up little things you may need or have forgotten, snacks, beverages & they also offer great coffee and espresso drinks A long with a tequila bar, there are also 3 other bars

Free, nightly live entertainment & a night club that’s open Friday & Saturday nights Pool area has private cabana’s you can rent for the day and the beach offers beach chairs & umbrellas you can rent at a discounted rate if you are a guess at the hotelLocation: This hotel is situated on a perfect beachfront that’s both family or adult friendly There is a gas station across the street where you can stock up on alcoholic or nonalcoholic drinks and snacks There are also plenty of nice restaurants within walking distanceTips: If you aren’t fond of loud music, request for rooms that faces the city not the ocean as there is nightly live entertainment We didn’t mind the music The island is really too small to drive The streets are busy not only with pedestrian but with cars and you literally could walk everywhere so don’t rent a car unless you plan on traveling away from the islandOverall, the service, amenities and the hotel was great! We will return!!

CLEAN!! That is the first thing that comes to mind when I think of my stay Every part of my room was spotless which during these times can be less than even though every place has their own “promise of clean” Next was the staff

Each one that I interacted with was incredibly wonderful Joe at the front desk is the best as is the valet guy with the long hair (did not get his name)In the mornings there is a free breakfast that is a step above continental A different kind of breakfast sandwich each day with cereals, oatmeal, fruit, juice, coffee and tea Great to grab before heading to the beach Which there is a golf shuttle to take there or to surrounding areas if you need it since there’s a beach access a short 3 minute walk from the hotelIn the room is a microwave and small refrigerator Unfortunately there is not a safeI truly was surprised by this property due to my own ideas of what it would be like and I will be staying here from now on Highly recommend!!

This place was great! First let me say the customer service was excellent Pam who runs the front desk is awesome Second the location is less then a mile walking distance to all great restaurants

They also offer a complimentary golf cart shuttle service to drop you off and pick you up from anything under a mile right in the area Third, the AC in the rooms are excellent and can get nice and cold Most hotels struggle in this area Our room was nice and quiet and very clean The hotel offers a complimentary breakfast which is really a nice perk It’s more then your typical cereal and fruit There was waffles, breakfast burritos, breakfast sandwiches, and good coffee and hot tea choices They also offered a little market that was stocked with some different sodas, water, and some alcoholic beverages It also had some snacks and food items Which reminds me each room has a microwave and a small fridge as well The pool is smaller but kept very clean Thank you so much for a great stay

Kate Foulke

Nice hotel located less than 5 min walk from beach which is good as beach parking is pricey A bit aways from many of the shops (7 min walk or so) but was quiet Rooms were clean

Loved that you could actually open the window to get smell of ocean and a night breeze Be aware there is $25 per day valet parking but can go in and out without extra cost

We spent a night with some international guests at the Avalon Club Hotel We were greeted with a professional and very friendly staff member at check in and that process was smooth and efficient As we made our way to our room, we noticed the hotel was spotless and even the aroma in the lobby, elevator and hallways was very pleasant

Upon entering our very spacious 3 bedroom condo, we were so pleased with the upscale furnishings, finishes and the large patio The Kitchen is well equipped and has everything you’ll need You’ll also have access to sturdy high quality beach chairs and umbrellas to take with you on the beach which is within steps from the hotel Everything about this hotel was exceptional and I look forward to my next time when I will make it a longer stay!

Harleen Kaur

Amazing for a family trip! Everyone had their own rooms and a laundry right in the suite! It’s a better alternative to airbnb The staff was so helpful and kind We loved interacting with them every day! The rooftop bar has a daily sunset toast which is great and fun to meet others in the building

The place was very clean and we have no complaints The room we picked did not have a good view but we made that decision to get a larger room We can’t wait to return!! Every single staff member, especially the front desk was so sweet and helpful The kitchen had every possible dish/utensil we could need and the TV in each room was nice The beach is right next to the building and a park right in front for kids/dogs!

Cathy Lavigne

We will definitely be back! Cannot say enough good things about this hotel Modern, incredible location to town & beach, walk to everything, the views from all the rooms fantastic We faced the marina area and there was a roof top band playing one night

Just so much fun Amazing staff: Karen & Felicia stand out as making our family’s trip amazing, but all the staff were friendly and helpful Just loved it there in every way

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!

Ian Hawkesworth

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

Wow! The staff was amazing! Quick shout out to the manager Tyler who saved our stay and made things awesome for our family! If his Boss reads this, he deserves a raise! Location is perfect, the hotel is very clean, heated salt water pool, lots of rooms with kitchens and full size refrigerators for those with kids and travel on a budget On site parking garage, beach towels included, on site restaurants Check for deals and go!

Douglas Considine

We got started off on the wrong foot, my check-in was 2 hours late But we were able to come to an agreement The hotel is well taken care of, and the rooms are beautiful and spacious

You couldn’t ask for a better location to the beach And may I add, what a beach it is All of the amenities are conveniently located Once again great job Hyatt, I think the only problem at this resort may lie with the general manager It seems he’s cutting back on the qualified employees

mathew jadan

Loved the stay! They have an amazing rooftop pool and restaurant and a beautiful sky terrace where you can get remarkable sunrise and sunset views The rooftop restaurant had great food and also a poolThe beach was right across a small downtown looking road

Also, the gulf is much warmer than the ocean which makes it more enjoyable The sand and the beaches are to die for

Remember to use ʜoᴛᴇʟʙᴏʟʟʏᴄᴏm when booking any room This site will compare thousands of booking websites and usually will have rooms much cheaper than others! Thank me later on! This resort is one of my favorites in the area

I have been coming here for years If you stay for a few days you won’t be let downStill features one of the most elegant Sunday brunches in the area, although there are no real safety precautions which was a bit disappointing Food is fresh and well -prepared with a wide assortment of breakfast and lunch/dinner fare The buffet includes a free mimosa, unlimited coffee, hot or iced tea and soft drinks

Marcus Miller

As a venue for a wedding, it was a great choice Absolutely incredible dinner service, bar was great, and lighting was well managedFor the hotel/spa, sub-par

Pool is nice, but crowded Limited chairs and towels Charges for spa were supposed to be waived for wedding, but wouldn’t remove a small $32 charge because it was booked through a third party Not a big deal, but more of the principal of the matter Room service was running behind for a morning breakfast (scheduled) 21% gratuity is automatic and the price on the menu didn’t match the price on the bill Very unfortunate considering a gratuity is linked to serviceThe entire hotel needs a coat of paint and a pressure wash outside Multiple parts of the hotel either smelled of mildew or bleach The room was clean and well stocked, but the towels were rough The furniture could definitely use an upgradeRecommendation for management/owners, whoever is the hospitality manager for the venue/wedding operations should be put in charge of all the others operations as well Perhaps they would bring the service level up and we’d stay again

Chris Camerlengo

Went for spring break with my son to catch Yankee spring training A relative set us up with a 2 night stay From check in to check out was nice place

Could use better water pressure and room updates But beds were comfortable Food at hotel was solid And the surrounding areas have places to eat Was a too short trip He will return with friends next year
