Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 Parking
I was not informed when I booked the hotel I would have to pay for parking. I also think with the room rate that parking should be included.

We have stayed at this hotel 4 times now. Unfortunately on this occasion we were a little disappointed. There is major construction of a new hotel being built within the hotels car park causing disruption within the hotels check-in reception and also with the whole of the pool area. Pool area is looking onto the building site with cranes etc.,noise and vibrating experienced daily. The hotel is trying to overcome the problem by sending customers to the hotel pool next door! Not always convenient for the customer though. Also the hotel has forced a valet service because they are building within most of the car park. It is a pity that this hotel feels the need to build in their carpark whilst customers are staying.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by dsadamz Friendly staff and easy access to beach
Was lucky to get a same day reservation during the busy summer season. Staff was warm and friendly. Our room was quiet and comfortable despite construction next door. We enjoyed sitting on the deck area and watching the sunset over the gulf.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by drsnapper Misleading with "beach access", and heavy construction was not disclosed
The only direct "beach" access from this hotel is a small sandy area behind the side parking deck. Even so, the hotel is actually located on an a clear water pass. If you desire the actual Clearwater sand beach, Beach Walk area, and unobstructed sunset views, you must either walk (crossing 3 streets due to sidewalks closed from construction) or drive and find/pay a premium for parking. Valet parking at this hotel is non-negotiable due to construction. Some valets at this hotel were extremely nice and helpful while others were rude and inconsiderate. Heavy construction is underway directly next door from 7 AM to 5 PM weekdays - more than likely for several more months. Jimmy's Fishhouse at this hotel was a good experience, and Julieta provided excellent room service during our 6-night stay. We will certainly not be back to this hotel, and regret not doing more research before taking our vacation here.

My partner and I stayed at this hotel for one night only on 7th July 2015 and had a great time. Yes there is a lot of building going on but it didn't effect us in any way. We paid for a Gulf view and it was well worth it, amazing.
We dined in the Iguana Bar where the cocktails were a yard long and very good! The sunset was the best we've seen for a long time and a nice touch with the mini cocktail for everyone. The only down side for us is that the pool doesn't open until gone 9.00am and as early risers we would have liked to swim before we left to continue our travels. Minor point though, overall we had a great time and would recommend to all.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by disappoinjted guest Disappointed! X 3
Hotels "beach access" was a small triangle of white sand just outside their front which actually belongs to the hotel near by, otherwise it is a sheer rocky drop from their pool deck to the water. You can, however walk 15 mins crossing the street many times due to construction get to a public beach. The pier is at least a 20 min walk. If we would have know this, we would not have booked, having a handicap person this "400 steps" plus was too much. Jimmy's Fish house was a bright spot, enjoyed the food, wait staff was pleasant, the "live" music consisted of a one man band who actually set the computer to run over and over. We chose a City View Balcony room received a 2nd floor room with a balcony with a view of a WALL. the pool and deck was nice and the sunset was awesome. We had intended to stay 4 nights but with the snotty service from front desk, "wall view" and not handicap friendly we chose to checkout early....... wasted vacation
