Just steps from the white sand of Clearwater Beach, Sands Point Motel is a simple, yet ideal beachfront motel for any family. Plus, it’s close to a few area attractions, including Busch Gardens and Lowry Park Zoo. Guests enjoy swimming in the motel’s outdoor heated pool or relaxing in the tropical courtyard, where a barbecue area is available for grilling. Spacious suites provide a comfortable place to retire at the end of each day, and include free Wi-Fi.

Planned a short little trip and decided to try something different than the normal Hotels. Booked our room and THEN read the reviews. Started to have a little “buyers” remorse BUT that was all for nothing.
Yes check in was strange with the key in the envelope at another hotel. But didn’t disrupt our vacation at all, actually sped up the process so that we could get to the beach quicker ????.
We even found out we got “upgraded”. That was a nice surprise
There was an issue with our credit card when they ran it. We came back from the beach to resolve the issue but it took a while to track anyone down. That was a bit frustrating. But once the owner came she was super helpful and friendly.
Room was quaint and homey. Quilt on the bed looked like it came right out of grandma’s hope chest. Kitchen was stocked with everything needed to prepare meals.
They had beach chairs, floats and noodles. You could use at the pool or take to the beach. That was a nice touch.
I would highly recommend taking dryer sheet for the bedroom. This is an old motel The ac worked fine but with the humidity things got a bit musty smelling. Had the same thing happen in Cozumel and took dryer sheets, took care of the issue.
I would recommend this motel to anyone that understands that this is a “self service” location. If you expect to be waited on hand and foot, this is not the place for you. we would definitely stay here again!
