More About Clearwater Beach, FL Hotels...

Stay In Mom and Pop Hotels for Great Deals

If you prefer the taste of local flavor over a chain hotel, Clearwater Beach has a lot of mom and pop hotels that offer cheap rates. The Castaways Motel is a small, family owned motel located on the bay a short walk away from Pier 60 and Clearwater Beach. Their rooms even have kitchenettes, so you can save money by cooking your own meals.

The Cavalier Beach Resort is another great option that also offers kitchenettes and is located in a very convenient area on Bay Esplanade. It's only a five minute walk from the hotel to the main tourist area of Clearwater Beach.

When you stay in a mom and pop hotel, take comfort in knowing that you are supporting an independent business and the local economy even more.

Be Prepared To Pay Hotel Prices On Airbnb

There aren't many listings on Airbnb for Clearwater, and the prices are about the same as staying at a budget hotel in Clearwater. There are some nices listings to choose from, such as a cute cottage with a kitchen that is close to the beach and a suite in someone's home that overlooks a swimming pool. There's also a listing in the $100 range that's right on the water, has sunrise views, and even offers its own private boat slip.

If you use Airbnb to stay with a local in their own home, then you have easy access to insider information about the area that you are visiting. You also get amenities that you may not find in local hotels such as a washer and dryer to do your laundry, a kitchen for cooking your own meals, and more room than you would in a hotel.  The downside is you may give up some amenities like room cleaning service and free breakfast, so remember to keep that in mind while deciding on a place to stay.
