My family of 5 were able to use the 2 room suite, which consists of a standard bed, a twin, and another bed (I believe queen-size). In addition, we had an inflatable mattress we put on the floor for my youngest child. The old-school beach motel was well maintained, with safe locks, convenient outdoor seating, lovely decor and murals, yet...

My girlfriend picked the Brightwater Suites for a stay with her daughter and granddaughter visiting. The retro style was beyond cool and the courtyard was most enjoyable. Service was excellent and welcoming. The towels, including those provided for the pool, were luxurious. Bedding was very comfortable and the sheets were top quality. Suite accommodations included a queen bed, kitchenette, table...

I will stay again! Very clean. Nice pool. Great location and the owner was very sweet and made us feel at home. They are plenty of rooms to choose from to fit everyone's needs. There is a washer and dryer for on premise to use! She includes detergent.

My family of four stayed here in late March 2016. It was spring break for many and a very busy time in Clearwater Beach. The location is fantastic - easy walking distance to the beach and many restaurants, shops, and attractions. I like the idea of supporting a renovated old-style Florida motel. However, we didn't have the best experience there,...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
We restored this classic boutique motel and brought that Ol' Florida Key West theme back to life on Clearwater Beach. All-new landscaping, pavers, and most importantly, all-new rooms. In our decorative beachy suites you'll find restored terrazzo flooring, wood, granite counter tops, and large flatscreen LCD TVs. Select rooms include a dining area or kitchen. At Brightwater Suites there is an outdoor pool, a garden and a terrace. Other facilities and services include sundecks with chaise lounge seating, free Wi-Fi access to guests and daily maid service. The property provides free parking. Once you stay at the Brightwater, we are sure you will find your vacation destination for years to come. Our grounds are a block away from Clearwater Beach's pearly white sand and 1.5 miles from the Clearwater Marine Aquarium. Pier 60, restaurants and several activities are in close walking distance. The property is a 30-minute drive from Tampa International Airport. ... more   less
