staff helpful, beach towels and chairs provided Funky smell in room like old body oder
Location They tried to charge a "resort fee" of $25 per room per night to cover "amenities" such as pool towels, a newspaper, small bottle of water in the room, down service, business and fitness facilities, and other minor incidentals that all major hotels provide for at no charge. I had them remove that charge from our bill. We will not stay there again or anywhere where they try to nickel and dime you at every turn. No self parking - and valet charge was $22 per day. This is in the off season and an outrageous cost.
Music was outstanding! The staff was extremely friendly! Beautiful view! Beach chairs should be free as a guest.
Location and amenities are great! Valet was also great and they were friendly and fast Being placed in the room directly above the club. I requested a higher floor to be away from the club and its noise until 3am
The rooms were very spacious and clean. The view from our balcony was if the beach and the club beneath us. The pool was very clean. On Sunday's they reserve it for hotel guests only......as far as the night club, they play a lot of techno but on Sundays they changed it up. Ohhh I almost forgot about the cheap drink specials. You cannot beat a 2 dollar drink. The resort was awesome all in all. You never need to leave the premises. But if you don't like loudness at night in your room from the music, ask to not stay on the same side as the club. Although there were no reserve seats at the pool. People did it.
Several bars, a nightclub, and a stage with live music and a dance floor all in one resort. It also has a pool, hot tub, and a small private beach. Also walking distance to several restaurants and shops. I wish I could have stayed longer (not really a negative comment about the resort, just wish I had a lower vacation)
The new renovations and the friendly staff That the only way to park your car was through valet
I liked everything about this Hotel, the room, the cleanliness and the location. The icing on the cake was the live band on the deck, the club downstairs and the bar overlooking Clearwater beach. Now I know where to stay when I'm in Tampa. Nothing, everything was an A+
The staff were very friendly. The hotel smelled like salt water, which, I realize is most likely due to its close proximity, however other places I've stayed did not have that issue. This place is solidly just ok. Not great, but not terrible. A younger, less pampered traveler probably would have been thrilled by the accommodations.
Loved the showers!! We stayed in fort Myers at a condo, then due to bad weather we decided to head to Clearwater. Best decision ever! Took the key west express for a couple days and came right back to shepards! We will definitely be back! The elevates were slow... Took forever to get on one depending on the time of day. We mostly used the stairs.
Really enjoyed the overall hotel. Beach is small but nice. Pool is very enjoyable. Lots of bars that included specials. Hotel room was very clean. Hotel made our stay easy and fun. We did find ants in our bathroom but didn't see it as a big deal, simply took care of it ourselves.
Plenty of complimentary parking, no issue parking arriving late several nights. Check in was fantastic. There was a brief rush of individuals checking in at the same time, but the clerk was very professional courteous and very very expeditious. The room was very clean and up to date. The breakfast was very good. The checkout process was a breeze. Will stay here again in the future. Having to leave.
The location was good. They served nice breakfast for all. They had a tray of ice ready to go in freezer didn't have to go hunt it down. There was plenty of space in the room. We enjoyed the pool There was one elevator which was not close to all the parking. Waited both times at the check in desk to check in and ask for more pillows.
Clean, good breakfast included, nice staff. Could get noisy outside but that is mainly because of the people that were saying there at the time.
The room was very clean always & the staff was as nice as can be. The Internet was prehistoric & the high dollar Internet wasn't much better.
We arrived and checked right in went to our nice very large room and was able to relax with plenty of towels for all of us. We just came from Disney World to spend a relaxing day at the beach and so I needed to do a load of laundry, there is only one washer and one dryer so it took a little while since the dryer takes a little long and I had to wait for some else to finish. I did only have cash and the desk was so helpful in being able to change it for a roll of quarters! The beds are comfy and bathroom is large. The breakfast was better then any other hotels we have been to and had a huge variety to choose from. It is about 30 mins from any beach and we had already choosen Fort Desoto cause we heard it was nice and not crowded and they were right! It was a nice day. There is only a couple of fast food places around like a Chick-fil-a but that worked for us and there is a couple shopping centers and Restaurants about 12 mins away. Check out was quick and easy! We will bs staying here next time we come for the price and the comfort this place offers! Only one washer and dryer but it was not the end of the world
Bed was really comfortable. The Market was a bit pricey!!
The rooms were comfortable and spacious. Loved the mini fridge and little kitchenette area. Bathroom was spotless and shower pressure was amazing! Bed was very clean and comfortable. the hotel is a convenient distance to St. Pete Beach and Clearwater Beach. The first night I was there my friend left 40 bucks on a table. I forgot to grab it the next day before I left and when I returned that evening, my room had been serviced and the money was missing. I blame myself for not picking it up but it was disappointing to have it stolen by the staff. Right by the St. Pete airport and the airplane noise overhead was a little much in the mornings.
Clean, great restaurant, courteous service and a great bed. Nothing
There were a couple of front desk staff members that were very nice. Within the first minute of walking in and checking in, a front desk man was speaking to me very degradingly and aggressively. He asked me when I booked the reservation, and I responded, "Today,". Immediately after my response he came back at me in a very degrading and aggressive tone saying, "WHEN, sir! When as in what time?!" My partner then immediately stepped in and just as aggressively had to tell him to calm down. Location was terrible as well. The location is way too noisy being located on a major highway which turns into a drag race strip every night apparently, and the landing airplanes flying very closely above the building sounded like Armageddon was coming. Will definitely not be staying here again.
It was close by to food! The room had a slight view of the pool with lights! The sheets were dirty, tape was still on the wall and there was also a t shirt sticker from someone else on the wall when we got there. The key never worked. If you leave the room you had to go to the desk maybe once or twice before the key actually worked. Tub was rusted.
Cheap. Convenient location Not up to typical Ramada standards. Hallway and room smells. Painted bathroom tiles and tub peeling and dirty. Neighboring fast food restaurants and airport very noisy in early morning. Easy to hear people in next rooms.
Great rate. Fast, easy check-in. Clean and comfortable bed. Clean bathroom. Internet was ok, if a bit slow. Fridge worked. 16 minute drive to TPA. Carpet was well worn. Cig burns in the chair. Cable channels limited and guide didn't work so slow channel surfing. The area has basic fast food, gas, CVS, etc all nearby, but it's shabby by Clearwater standards.
Pool was nice it's surrounded by the motel jacuzzi was ok nice setup with the jacuzzi for handicap it has a lift The carpet in the room smelled like stinky feet. Bad stains on the sofa chair. Had to be very careful with the shower curtain the rod was just about to fall off the wall looks like it had been patched a few times already. And last the toilet was about as big around as a top hat if you are a man like me you know when you sit on one of these there is no place for your junk to hang. Just go there after driving 10 hours and you are really not going to care
The staff was nice and friendly
Great the Staff was Excellent!!!!!!
Cheap clean room Nice pool No refrigerator Ice machines were down on floors 3 and 2 so had to go down to floor one for ice. Location makes it so you have to U turn on a business highway to get there. No breakfast accommodation
The staff were friendly, helpful and efficient. The hotel is not new and is quite beat-up, which wouldn't be a problem if clean but it wasn't. The hot tub wasn't working.
Lobby and hallways had no airconditioning
The room we stayed in was quite nice, the bed was extremely comfortable. It was nice to have a work-out center available even though it wasn't high-tech it was nice to have. We actually went back when we extended our stay in Clearwater. Only thing is that there's not really breakfast- they've got hot coffee and some packaged muffins. It wasn't a problem as we don't usually partake in hotel complimentary breakfasts any way. Was good quality and good price.
Der Pool war schön und ruhig. Das Frühstück war gut und heiß. Das Hotel war gut abseits von all den anderen Hotels. Man kann nicht aus dem Hotel gehen und gleich an den Strand. Man muss 20 Minuten mit dem Auto fahren, um das zu bekommen, was gleich vor der Tür liegt.
Das Hotel benötigt dringend eine Renovierung. Auch die Inneneinrichtung der Zimmer ist dunkel und im 80er Jahre Style. Der Teppich verursacht im gesamten Hotel/Zimmer einen unangenehmen Geruch. Die Mitarbeiter am Empfang wechselten permanent. Die Poolanlage ist eine größere Badewanne, direkt an der Straße. Das Hotel entspricht nicht dem Preis-, Leistungsverhältnis. Die Lage ist ok.
Sehr, sehr, sehr freundliches Personal, spitze Preis-Leistungsverhältnis. Ohne Auto wäre man aber dort aufgeschmissen. das Frühstück, überall das gleiche, keine Vielfalt.
We had a really nice time i would definitely do it again very clean and comfortable there was really nothing we didnt like
I reserved two gulf view rooms and only got one. The other room face a parking garage. See above
Amazing view! Staff was friendly and courteous. Excellent value for the price I paid. Room / hotel is a little dated and could use a remodeling.
Was a nice Hampton. Clean rooms, quiet, good value. A bit further from beach that had hoped for. Too close to airport.
VERY FRIENDLY STAFF and very informative on area and things to do. Also loved the breakfast! Wish pool area had more PRIVACY (like a privacy fence) since it was literally right next to road and parking area...
It was wonderful The maid opening my door at 1030 with an 11am check out. Thankfully the stop was engaged
The front desk staff was Amazing at customer service. I would definitely recommend this place.
Breakfast. Room heater very noisy. No bathmat in tub. Very slick and unsafe. One elevator out of order. No sign.
Staff friendly and helpful. Price very competitive for area but if you are use to spending a little extra for a room at a Hampton Inn or Farfield Inn or better you will not enjoy these rooms. For the price , you cannot beat it for the value. Bedding old and stained, I was in non-smoking room but room and hallways smell like smoke. Shower small. No shampoo in rooms. No real breakfast served, just coffee and muffins.
Room with balcony well appointed although the bath was a bit small. Accommodation is located in close proximity to the Bon Appetit Restaurant & Cafe. Normal conversations from the next door guests were plainly heard through the adjacent wall.
Clean remodeled rooms, very spacious, well appointed, staff went out of the way to please.
Location was amazing for the price and proximity to the park for festivals and we could walk everywhere we wanted to go downtown. Would definitely return!! Front desk staff were nice but maybe not the best team. This didn't effect our stay, but it was observable that they may not enjoy working together, or may not work together much. Housekeeping staff were friendly and accommodating!!!
The view was amazing best location on the beach also free bottled water on each floor Rooms were decent and comfortable but not resort luxury, to many kids running around felt like I was at a kids resort, resort fee covers fresh fruit never had any out on my floor in the pantry they have call ahead valet so it creates congestion with the cars and your stuck and can't leave .... Utter confusion
ocean front - fantastic view, looking new / well maintained property, friendly staff very limited vegetarian food options, water and ice was not available in the pantry many times. did not see cookies even once. instead of charging a fee for the 3rd bicycle, you could provide something similar to Hyatt's Wheel Fun Rentals. You could challenge yourself with providing food and drinks at competitive price
The staff was extremely friendly and helpful and even allowed me to check in earlier than scheduled to get some sleep after my overnight flight. The room was good size and a great value for what I paid. The breakfast was good and the location was central to everywhere I wanted to go during my trip. I will certainly stay here again if I ever find myself in the area again. There was nothing that really bothered me during my stay. The hotel is next to a gentleman's club, but no issues arose from this during my stay. It is also close to an airport and while the planes are close and loud when coming in for landing, you could barely hear them when in the room and it did not keep me awake or wake me any during my stay.
The room was a good value for the price. Staff was VERY friendly. I was disappointed that although I received the non-smoking room I requested, the smoke from the smokers in adjoining 'non-smoking' rooms did filter in and make the room smell very stale. Beware that the non-smoking rooms aren't truly non-smoking. Otherwise, decent place to stay.
This is a very nice place to stay for the money. The rooms are roomy and clean and I like having a full kitchen when I travel. The staff was very nice.
We were in town for a wedding. Our family and friends booked a total of 8 rooms and we were all pleased with the hotel and amenities. The staff is very pleasant and accommodating. We needed to go toward the downtown area as well as to the beach and this hotel is situated about in the middle of both. Panera Bread is right next door and other restaurants and shopping are very close. We were in a non-smoking room next to a smoking room yet our room did not smell smokey. The hotel is not luxurious but is everything it advertises to be and is a real deal for the money. We would all definitely stay at the Homestead Studio Suites again.
We came to stay here for our friends honeymoon surprise. We put them up at another hotel, but we needed the kitchen to do what we had planned for there second night surprise. In all, the room was a bit musty, yet bearable. The kitchenette was cramped, but served its purpose. The bed was uncomfortable, and the bedspread being 'gold bee's' was a bit of a throw back with some noticable ciggarette burns in it. The size of the room was good, and the added couch made for more sitting room for visitors who came to see us. This hotel is great for the money and what you get in the price, although if your looking for something grand or spectacular, this may not be the room for you. If we ever need to come back to this area of town, we would stay here again.
People stay her for a long time. In other words,it can be likened to low-income housing. Our bed was terrible, bouncy. It selled smoky. Did not feel clean, right to the dirty walls and bedspread. Dirty carpet. They only have 1 hairdryer! The parking lot was dirty. The pool was a joke. Would not recommend. Nicer places for the money. I'd sleep in my car first.
This hotel was a very nice value. The small kitchenette was a great bonus. The room was comfortable and the staff was very nice. The location was convenient to the interstate, but it was a short drive to get to beaches. The room was clean and the bed was good. I will stay here again if in the area.
Regular hotel room with kitchen area with limited utensils. $25/night pet fee up to max $75. This is a limited service hotel. No water cups, shampoo and two small bars of soap. and shower sprayed entire bathroom. Close to I275 and easy drive to Ft Desoto Paw Beach which was a lot of fun.
I stayed in this hotel while in Florida for a friends wedding. I was very happy with my stay. Close to everything quiet room was nice and staff was very helpful and friendly. I would definitely stay again!
I would like to start off with how wonderful the staff were. They were very helpful when it came to providing anything. Room was very clean. I felt it was out of the way enough but centrallly located for where we traveled and visited. Our next trip we'll definitely book here again.
While this is by no means a deluxe hotel, it is a tremendous value. The room was clean (although the rug could use a shampooing) and everything worked fine. I only used the fridge, but it had a fully stocked full kitchen, and they supplied soap, shampoo, coffee, and any toiletries you may have forgotten. The bed was comfortable and it was quiet- the shades keep the room nice and dark, which is not true in very many hotels. Very nice and helpful staff. The pool needs some upkeep- the lounge chairs all have seen better days, and it would help if the pool was heated. It is close to both the Tampa and St. Pete airports and all highways. There is a Panera next door, but if you want to go out for a sit down breakfast you have to go up the road a bit.
Cheap Our room had a weird smell to it. The only reason I rated it lower is because I stayed in a la Quinta inn the 3 nights before in Bonita springs and it was so much nicer and better kept. Cheap hotel and you get what you pay for.
Clean and well maintained for a slightly older building. Plenty of food options close by and easy access to highways. Pillow-top mattresses were nice. Decent value for the area at spring break. Basic minimal continental breakfast options, except no pastries, and the staff got way behind on restocking during the late rush. Terrible weak coffee.
Proximity to clearwater and St. Petersburg. Staff was very nice and helpful. Building was terribly old. Could see light coming through room door from the hallway. Weird smell. Shower floor had a crack in it that squeaked. Bathroom was outdated.
Great front office staff Would have liked an expanded breakfast menu as enjoyed at other La Quinta facilities.
The beds were very comfortable, non smoking hotel in and out. Nice pool and spa area, rooms were large and included microwaves and refrigerators. Three large mirrors made it easy for all three girls to get ready without tripping over each other. Staff was very helpful with recommending restaurants and attractions near by. The showers were hit or miss, some of us had the water go AWOL on us and constantly switch between hot and cold, guess it depends on how many other rooms are using their showers as well. There is currently construction on the road right out side so ask for a room facing the back of the hotel.
Good size room A/C compressor was noisy. No soap or shampoo for a shower in the morning. Front desk clerk didn't really seem to care about there being any issues with the room.
