4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Pool area was great fun for the kids with comfortable lounge chairs for watching kids in the water. The weather in Clearwater was very chilly but the temperature of the pool was fantastic, perfect for playing in the pool and making it a positive experience for everyone. Staff throughout the hotel was absolutely fantastic! Parking at the hotel was perfect and the trolley was a nice touch.

First time to the Clearwater area to meet relatives for the first time. The hotel is in a great location, very friendly and accommodating staff. It was not right on the beach but you had beautiful view of the bay behind you and beach in front of you. I would stay here again on my next visit.

The hotel is very good, cleane and cozy. The staff very friendly and the view is amazing

This was a nice Marriot. We had a great view of the Bay, and the sea, outside our door. Pool area was very busy.

Great place, good location. There is a lot to do and your only 2 miles from all restaurants and excursion

Enjoyed the hotel. Lobby and bar staff were exceptional. Would recommend to family and friends.

While I think some elements of the room could be better for the price, the service was outstanding and the location can't be beat. We ate 3 meals in 4 days at the hotel, which is unusual for us, but the combination of great food and great service were spectacular. The bartender, Rick, made our vacation that much better and my teen kids just loved him...and they don't love much.

If you don't mind being on the sound versus gulf, this is a great place to stay. Family and I stayed for six nights and have no major complaints. Our room was on the 6th floor and provide great views of the sound. Was taken back by the motel style entrance to the rooms (did not pay close attention to pictures), not interior hallways, but actually worked well when balcony door and front door were opened providing a very nice breeze. The hotel is right on the edge so we couldn't be any closer. Rooms were very clean with nice standard decor and furnishings and configured perfectly for our family of 4 with two rooms, a bedroom and living room with wet bar and pull out. Two TVs were great. Staff from check-in to check-out were friendly and often helpful. Not a huge pool, but heated with waterfall feature, also a hot tub. Small boardwalk connected the hotel to shops and restaurants which provided great convenience. Business center met the need to print documents, tickets, boarding passes, etc. Shuttle service to and from Sand Key beach from the front of the hotel with pay trolley service stopping in front of hotel. The workout was sufficient with newer cardio equipment, free weights and Universal machine. Did not dine at the hotel restaurant or pool side. Ample free parking with pay valet option. One minor nit would be not enough pool towels when it got busy. Would highly recommend staying at this Marriott, you should not be disappointed

I enjoyed having the suite with a small child, we could close the french doors between the rooms when he was sleeping, and then have another room with a nice view of the bay with balcony. Every room has a balcony which is nice, views are good, external 'hall' is not so nice, especially if the weather is bad.

Staff was very accommodating & friendly. Kids loved the pool and the short walk to the beach was great...awesome shell collecting on the beach!!

We stayed at the Marriott for one week in February. The weather was fantastic. The pool was beautiful at the Marriott. I was able to use the fitness center every morning! It is conveniently open 24 hours a day! The staff was super friendly and helpful with all concerns and questions. The suites facing the water / pool are the best to reserve (view from balcony is superb). The rooms were clean and comfortable. I did not like that wi-fi was not included for free in your rooms, but the lobby allowed 4 hours of free internet access during your stay. Breakfast was a bit expensive and lunch/dinner but there are places to walk to to eat if desired. It is a couple miles from Clearwater beach so in order to get to the beach you have to drive or get transportation from the hotel. It was beautiful here and I would book another stay for sure!!

The lobby is impressive, the pool is gigantic and beautifully landscaped, the view is fantastic. However, the rooms were 60's style, the stool did not work properly, there were areas of the room that were not clean, the bedroom telephone did not work, and there was a gecko in our room. Not something Midwesterners see. We felt that the first impression was great but it was all for looks. We would not return there.

I absolutely loved this hotel!!!!! The staff went out of their way to make it a pleasant stay. The hotel itself was so beautiful and wonderfully decorated and the view from my room was Amazing. I'm definitely going to come back again and again.

We really enjoyed our stay here. The staff was terrific and accommodated us with any requests we had. We had a good time at the pool with the only drawback being that people grab the chairs with umbrellas first thing and don't even use them until later in the day. We appreciated their shuttle to the beach across the street. Overall, we would recommend this hotel as it is close to the beach and within driving distance of most events in the Tampa area.

Great food, nice location, overall good staff, excellent pool. Terrible room-first one smelled terrible, had mold in it and smelled like someone used it for a public bathroom. Finally got transferred to a new room and guess what the two rooms right next store were being remodeled and workers started at 7:30am. Front desk help seemed to not care. The rooms, carpet and furniture were in need of a major update and at $300 per night way overpriced. do not stay at this hotel!!!! Hilton or Hyatt is much better at same price point.

The Marriott on Sand Key has a great location. The rooms were very roomy and comfortable. Great views of Bay and Gulf. Staff very helpful and knowledgeable. Short ride on the trolley to Pier 60, stores, restaurants, and attractions. Great pool with poolside drinks and food. An exceptional Florida vacation.

We had a wonderful stay at the Clearwater Beach Marriott. Highlights were: The staff, the pool, location, and the great breakfast! Also, they have a kids club that does babysitting most evenings. The beach is a 5 minute across the street, or a shuttle ride. The main part of town is about 1 mile away, and very easy to get to. Overall, I would recommend the hotel.

the staff was perfect. check in was very fast. trinity and rich were great at the front desk. rick the bartender was very entertaining and would return just to see him. room was a little dated and small, but we didnt spend much time in there anyways. pool area was well maintained. beautiful view on the bay. food and drinks were pricey, but all the food was top notch. i recommend the crab cake.

The staff was very helpful , the rooms were very neat & clean . the view from our room was wonderful . I would stay there again . couldn`t ask for a better place to stay .

The stay was great. The pool area is wonderful, we spent alot of time there. The rooms were clean and comfortable. We did not eat at the restaurant in the motel, not because we didn't like it we just wanted to get out and try other restaurants. You will probalbly need a car if you want to get out, there is not alot around the motel however they do offer shuttle to the beach.
