Places to Stay in Clearwater Beach

No matter what hotel you choose in Clearwater Beach, you’ll be just steps from the Gulf, and close to activities and dining. 

Looking for a luxe beach resort experience? The beachfront Sandpearl Resort is flush with amenities – from sparkling pools to a 12,000-square-foot spa and world-class dining.

Enjoy the recently renovated Clearwater Beach Marriott Suites on Sand Key – an all-suite hotel that features an on-site spa and an outdoor pool with a 25-foot waterfall. Relax and recharge in a expansive suite with a private balcony, ultra-soft bedding and great amenities.

To the south, Sandpearl’s sister property, Opal Sands, offers similarly luxurious amenities. Here, the beach is just steps away – though it might be hard to leave your poolside cabana with a view of the Gulf.

Crowning this barrier island community is Hyatt Regency Clearwater Beach, a towering pink structure offering large, well-appointed suites with beach or Intracoastal Waterway views.

Just to the north is Wyndham Grand Clearwater Beach, with its modern furnishings and a long amenity list that includes a full-service spa. Families will adore this property, which offers rooms outfitted with sea creature-themed bunk beds.

If a more casual hotel suits your style and budget better, head to Shephard’s Beach Resort, which caters to a younger crowd. Its rooms are chic, the views are excellent and the beach bars here serve up cocktails, live music and stunning sunsets.

Another low-key option: Palm Pavilion Inn, a vintage Art Deco boutique property adjacent to the iconic restaurant of the same name.

Another gem hidden in plain sight along Mandalay Avenue is Pier House 60, where the cheerful rooms overlook the Gulf or the Intracoastal, and rooftop bar Jimmy’s Crow’s Nest beckons with the promise of a sunset show.

You’ll find some very affordable hotel options, too, such as Enchanted Inn & Gulfside Cottages and Royal North Beach. Both offer rentals within walking distance of the beach, as well as a quiet respite, if that’s what you seek.
