"A good place to stay"

09/11/2018

We were only there overnight but enjoyed our stay. The hotel has been renovated and so everything is new (Ice makers...refrigerator in room TV's etc.) The room was overlooking the pool - go for one overlooking the Marina. the rooms are back door into the room with a door on the other side of the room out onto your own balcony. there is an outside corridor on the north side of the room where you can sit and view the Bay and water.... very soothing and quiet in the evening. Full breakfast in the lobby area.... also very good.

"Horribly Managed"

08/11/2018

Nice location and clean. However, the worst management I have experienced in some time. Over a three day period, we had to fight over getting commitment to a reservation we made and confirmed, trying to move us to another room mid stay, refusing to come up and fix a door that would not lock, and other assorted items. The Holiday Inn Express is nicer, cheaper and more professionally run.

"Classy but very friendly"

Delicious food, beautiful scenery and personable waiters. Prices are a little high, but worth every penny. The outside dining is the only way to go! Trust the recommendations of the staff on your selection...they really know their menu.

My husband and I got ready at the Best Western Yacht Harbor Inn on the day of our wedding. The hotel was beautiful and the rooms were so spacious! It was the most relaxing atmosphere! The location was perfect for our Honeymoon Island wedding and walking distance to the post-wedding party in downtown Dunedin! The staff were very friendly and the breakfast was delicious! Overall, great experience and we will most definitely visit the hotel again!

Excellent location next to small tourist area with restaurants and shops within easy walking distance. Great view of the sunset. Happy hour at the lounge. Restaurant was a bet expensive. Room was very clean and modern. Nice seating on both sides of the room. Views of the yacht club and the bay area.

This place is a gem. Beautiful view of the water from my rooms outdoor walkway with benches for sitting to watch the fish jump.Large pool area. Rooms are extremely clean and bright. Entire staff made us feel special. It was really great to find a dog friendly place. Looking forward to our next stay.

"Amazing place to stay"

We stopped for one night on our honeymoon and the room was absolutely amazing. Will definitely go back again.The staff was friendly and the hotel was walking distance to the downtown area. Truly a great place to stay.

14/10/2018

Very good experience. All of the rooms can be entered from the parking lot side and the balcony or patio side. We were able to sit outside and enjoy the water and/or the marina. We had booked a room on the first floor but after checking in and going to our room, we realized we would prefer to be on the second floor for a better view of the water from the balcony. The friendly front desk clerk was able to switch us. A few minutes walk to the fun downtown of Dunedin, with shops, restaurants, bars, etc. Not a fancy place but very clean with friendly, helpful staff. Excellent restaurant on the premises.

"Very Nice Location and Price!"

04/09/2018

We wanted to take a trip for labor day weekend and things get booked early so I looked in June and found this hotel and the pictures looked really nice. I have stayed at several Best Western Plus hotels before and found them very nice for the price. When we were driving in it was late at night and I had never heard of this town of Dunedin and did not know what to expect before we hit the town the way we came in looked a little ghetto so I was worried but when we got there I was pleasantly surprised. When we woke up in the morning and started exploring we loved it and wanted to go back because we didn't have enough time in 2 days to do much. The only complaint I had about the hotel and it only bothered me because I like it real dark to sleep is there is a triangle window on the corner at the top of the ceiling that the parking lot lights shine in at night and there is no way to block it we were on the 2nd floor though so I am thinking they probably don't have those on the 1st floor. The doors did stick a bit to but that was because of the swelling from being on the water. The views were beautiful from both sides of the room you had a balcony with the marina view and when you went out your door they had a view of the bay and they had benches you could sit on. I would definitely stay there again.

"Unique and Convenient "

03/09/2018

We stayed here for two nights. Our room was comfortable, clean and unique. The only thing that kept me from giving a perfect score were our neighbors that sounded like they were in the room with us. Since it's an older property, I expected the walls to be thicker. Maybe the connecting door made a difference. The breakfast was nice. There was a pancake machine, bacon and sausage, mini omelets plus fruit, cereal and oatmeal. The staff even got my daughter Almond milk from the back. The property was walking distance to everything. We would come back again.

"Great views & location"

5
02/08/2018

We stayed 2 nights & fell in love with the area. The hotel & town are very dog friendly. We had great views out to the bay from the front door & Marina & partial bay off our balcony. painting/renovations were being done in the room next door & we did not hear a sound. Breakfast was good as there were hot options as well as the usual fare offered at most free breakfast hotels. Pool looked refreshing & clean. Traveling with dogs did not allow us to try the pool as we never leave them unattended in the room & it was too hot to bring them out with us. I was surprised at some of the reviews regarding pet deposits. If your dog or cat damages a room, you should pay for damages! I inspected the room at check in & found no damage from prior guests. I requested an inspection at check out & had no problem obtaining a refund on my deposit. We will definitely be back.

I brought many concerns to the manager and she kept making excuses. Parking lot shared with bar/restaurant leads to no parking spaces and very noisy! Mold and peeling paint in bathroom. Bright lights from parking lot coming into upper floor rooms due to no window treatment. Rust and mold under bed.

We really liked this hotel. We will stay here again. The room was clean and had a back door out to a long covered area looking out into the bay. It had a small refrigerator and microwave. Breakfast was included in the price of our room. It was very good. The pool was clean and refreshing.

Such a beautiful place to stay. The food areas are beautiful over looking the water. The views are awesome. If you own a boat you can just dock, hop off and enjoy a nice stay. It is a little pricey but you get what you pay for.

YachtHarborInn150, Manager at Best Western Plus Yacht Harbor Inn, responded to this review
Dear Guest, Your recent review of the Best Western Plus Yacht Harbor Inn is greatly predicated. The views along the sore in Dunedin are definitely amazing. We look forward to seeing you in delightful Dunedin in the near future. Warm Regards, Adam K

"Perfect spot for our trip"

18/07/2018

We were in town for a long weekend in early July for a wedding. This hotel was exactly what we needed for this trip. The room was nice and the view was really pretty. It was in a great location if you are wanting to visit the local shops since they are walking distance. We were driving to other locations quite a bit so the traffic was a little annoying getting out of the place since it is very congested trying to get out left. We LOVED the little café right across the street, Olde Bay Café and ate there 3 times during our 4 day trip. The breakfast was pretty good for a continental breakfast and we only had issues getting the hot food one day when we showed up towards the end of the time. They did get the food re-filled as fast as they could though. We did use the pool one day and it was very nice and not busy at all. The only thing we didn't really like about the hotel was how they reserve the parking spots (they put cones out) for the restaurant that is onsite. That was very annoying since we paid to stay there and had to fight to get a spot near our room. It was fine during the day, but if you wanted to leave in the evenings you had to cross your fingers that you would be able to park anywhere near your room when you returned. I am sure that we were not the only ones that did not like that. Overall, we really liked this hotel and would definitely stay again if we visit Dunedin again.

Dear Guest, Thank you for your stay in Dunedin at the Best Western Plus Yacht Harbor Inn.

Albeit an older facility, it has been exceptionally well maintained. Room was spacious and absolutely spotless, and it's location to downtown Dunedin is perfect if you're visiting for the day or a week. Would certainly stay here again.

Loved the hotel and location. However there were quite a few dogs, and barking during the early morning hours was a problem. Wish we had been told in advance that we were placed in a room next to a dog room.

"Wonderful View"

09/07/2018

Room is average, water pressure a bit low and the bathroom fixtures are in need of some TLC. However, the location cannot be beat. It is in walking distance to all the spots in town, including seven breweries. The view from the deck is absolutely fantastic. The cons: Too few rooms with King Size beds. Each time we try to book there, they only have Queens available. The lights from outside will shine in your room. There is nothing you can do to stop it. It actually got darker in our room once the sun rose because the automatic lights shut off.

"Great Find!"

06/07/2018

This is a great older hotel that has been kept up well! The room we stayed in was large and clean. The beds were comfortable and the bathroom was clean and water pressure was great! We checked in late at night and the front desk clerk was incredibly helpful in getting us all set up in a nice hotel. It's right on the water too so that's a nice perk!

29/06/2018

The views were spectacular. The rooms are large, this is an older hotel but kept updated and found nothing to complain about. They have several pet friendly rooms. The pool was clean and kept up and was large. Across from the pool is a marina where there are boats for charter. They have a high end restaurant called Bon Appetite and an outside bar. There is a Cafe across the street at the marina for a more relaxing atmosphere and price range. The rooms have 2 doors, one to where your car is parked by the pool and the back door opens to a large covered hallway where your overlooking the anchorage and the best sunrises and sunsets. The town is walking distance to galleries and lots of restaurants and bars, loved the feel of the town. You can get in your car and drive 10 minutes to Honeymoon Key, a state park with a beautiful white sandy beach. We will definitely stay again if in this area.

"Great Location/Great Restaurant"

28/06/2018

We were trying to get a group rate for a family event we needed to attended and it was a total nightmare. Before I called I was told this hotel had a reputation of being rude. I figured that would not bother me because we had liked the location and how hard could it be to make a reservation. Boy was I ever wrong!!! We were quoted a reduced rate by the agent at the hotel and it kept changing. After "two" hours of trying to make reservations thru the hotel and central registration (Each hotel is owned separately so central's hands are tied trying to match rate that was initially quoted.) the majority of our group went to another hotel. After trying to speak with the manager about a group rate I was told he was leaving for the day and to call back in the morning or go to anther hotel if their rate was less). The hotel reservationist gave us an hour to call back if we were to make a reservation with the discount. Rooms were very nice and clean with views of marina and bay. Beds were very comfortable. Walls are thin so you could hear noise from either side but not annoying. There is only one elevator on the far side of the hotel. If you are handicapped or elderly and cannot lug suitcases up the stairs you would need a first floor room or one close to the elevator on the second floor. We enjoyed our stay despite the reservation hassle and it was disappointing the fact our family was split up by staying in another hotel. You can't beat the location. It is perfect if you are in Dunedin. Bon Appetit restaurant next door is excellent with great views and food and service and of course very convenient. Don't take a room on first floor next to restaurant as it is noisy and you would be getting the smell of the restaurant dumpster which was very unpleasant..

28/06/2018

This place is very lovely. Our rooms was quite large and creatively decorated. We had a kitchenette. From our room, one side of the room, we saw the lake and the other side of the room the Yachts on the bay via the parking lot. Lower levels have private sitting area facing the parking lot and the Bay. The staff was very courteous. The room was very clean.

"Great location and poor reception "

25/06/2018

I made a reservation in March 2018 for Memorial Day weekend stay. Prepaid for king room overlooking marina and noted I had one dog in accordance with the published pet friendly policy. I called the Monday before to clarify parking and confirm room only to be rudely told I had to accept a queen room on ground floor by pool because of the dog. The nightly pet rate was quoted higher than posted rate and the desk manager refused to discount for the room change. She was offended I booked thru 3rd party. After seeking help from TripAdvisor and Expedia I got the room reservation corrected only to be challenged again upon trying to check in. Thankfully I had my printed receipt and was able to get the king room I reserved and paid for months earlier. The staff said pets were not permitted in the upper rooms overlooking marina but the adjacent and lower level rooms all had dogs so I think the issue was Expedia booking. The room was bright and clean as pictured. The door to the balcony was stuck and presented a possible fire escape hazard. It was quiet enough for sleeping. Parking was fine and the neighboring public park and shopping areas were quite nice. Great options in walking distance. Dunedin is wonderful but I will not stay here again given poor customer service.

"Mixed feelings"

11/06/2018

I was really excited to stay at this hotel because of the view I was supposed to get, but it was kind of lackluster. The view out my front door was great, but no place for me to sit. The view from my balcony was mainly of the parking lot. I was disappointed in this. When I went to check in, I wanted to use cash but they required a 250 deposit as well. Since I had booked two rooms, this was not an option. Therefore, I paid with my debit card but still had to pay a 100 deposit for both rooms, even though the first night plus tax for both rooms was already charged to the card. The room was clean but kind of small. The bathroom didn't have much space at all. We had to keep going to the front desk to get an extra towel because they kept giving us three towels instead of the four that we needed. The breakfast was one of the better ones I have had at any hotel and I looked forward to that every morning. I don't know if I would stay here again, but I don't know if I wouldn't either.

"HORRIBLE check-in policy"

2
10/06/2018

Book via HOTELS.COM; 2-night stay, pay full amt up-front in cash; THEN they insist on a $250 'deposit' in case of 'incidentals'?!?! Naturally, we didn't pay this. Only after calling for the manager (off property) was this somewhat resolved. The policy & staff's attitude clearly were, 'get the MONEY'; not, 'help the guest'. I won't be staying here again.

"Beautiful, Floridian Resort"

04/06/2018

Clean, comfortable, bright, exotic, gem in Downtown Dunedin: this resort has been renovated, redecorated, updated, and revalued. The owners show they care with the attention to details from everything to the tiles on the floor to the organic shampoo in the bathroom. There was even a heat lamp in my bath suite! Then, the breakfast was real! So after a good night's comfortable rest, you could make your own pancakes, grab a cold yogurt, or select real eggs and bacon! The view from the breakfast bar gave to the Marina—just gorgeous. The pool was open and clean too. And they gave me two towels! ;) The resort is walking distance to small shops and many restaurants. There is a memorial park across the street too. I enjoyed Dunedin bc of this resort! And it is close to many Florida State Parks, Clearwater, and other cities on the Gulf so you can beach-it one day. Lots to do! Thank you Silvania, Fryda, Paula, b-ball-eye-guy, and Adam! ??

Such an amazing location. So close to downtown Dunedin and a short drive to Clearwater Beach and Honeymoon Island. Wonderful views from rear of room and if course the nearby pier. Rooms are very spacious. Front desk, breakfast staff and housekeeping were very friendly. Special thanks to Freyda and Silvana who were so nice to our two little girls. Will definitely return!

We were sorry we had only one night to spend here. The location is perfect, for parking your car at the hotel and leaving it there until you are ready to check out. You are in easy walking distance to incredible restaurants, a little park, the fishing pier and the shops of charming downtown Dunedin. We had a second floor room which opened to a balcony overlooking the yacht club and the front door opened out to a balcony with stunning bay views. The bed was very comfortable and the bathroom adequate. Having a fridge and microwave was also great. Breakfast was standard best western fare. It was lovely to wake to the sound of the birds and the sunrise was lovely. Walk to the end of the pier or dine in the hotels restaurant Bon Appetit for sunset experiences. You will love this hotel.

23/05/2018

My wife and I stayed here for a 3 night getaway. The front desk staff was very polite and helpful with no wait to check in. Our room was exactly expected. It was decent size with great views. The balcony side of the room looks across the parking lot to a marina. When you walk out the front door, we looked out at some private piers and in to the bay. The bathroom was a little small, but served its purpose. The included breakfast was decent but not great, but after all - it's a FREE breakfast. If you do stay here I would absolutely recommend dining at the restaurant attached to the hotel called Bob appetit. The view and the food were both amazing.

Heavenly view and experience. We consider this hotel a home away from home. The bike ride along the St. Joseph sound and enjoyment of the seafood and wine at the Marina just make the trip complete. We were 100% satisfied.

"Nice location"

02/05/2018

I recently stayed at this location for a short girls trip, just one night. I really liked the location of this hotel. It is within walking distance of multiple restaurants and bars and a quick drive to the beach. We were able to see the sunset from the water out front of the hotel which was nice. The breakfast had a nice selection and the staff was kind. I only give 4 stars because our room had a very large window at the top of the wall that we couldn't cover and it let quite a bit of light in at night which made it hard for some people in our party to sleep. If you are not bothered by lights at night then this wouldn't be an issue. If you prefer a dark room I would just bring a sleep mask. Overall we liked our room and the hotel and do plan on coming back.

"Ok"

30/04/2018

It was a noisy hotel. The rooms open to a back promenade. People visit, smoke and party out there. It would be nice if you came with your own group. Otherwise you are pretty much up until they leave. The parking is non existent when the restaurant is open. The valet parking is apparently the hotel parking lot. The front desk will find you a spot if you can't park your car. The rooms are spacious, the bathroom dated. Awkward steps into the rooms from outside. The price wasn't bad, the location is good. I was out and about most days, made coming back to a racket not so great. But if you are active and you like staying out late, good place to go, especially couples.

I was charged 200 per night. I was offered a room for half price if I extend 1 night. Just give the better price from the begining. Your offer made think I was over charged. The rooms are not at all sound proof so it would be difficult to recommend.

"I think you can do better."

17/04/2018

My sister,my niece and I stayed here in March and took the two bedroom suite. The room itself is nice but the bathroom in the largest bedroom has a toilet with no door. It has a tub but no shower. The other bathroom is in hallway and has a shower. It was very inconvenient,we don't take baths and need privacy. This is a stupid setup. We went back on April 13th and took two rooms this trip,we were traveling with our husbands. The rooms are tired and the cleaning staff is below average. Besides the location it's just okay.

"Not very friendly and watch the hold on your credit card"

15/04/2018

Customer focus is not their focus. They charged the room to two separate credit cards because they said the first one didn't go through. We then had to hassle to get the one charge credited, including the staff implying that we were lying about the double charge. They also put an outrageous hold on the card for damages which according to them stays for a week after your departure.

Nice hotel, big room, very clean and comfortable. If you need darkness to sleep well, bottom floor would be best as the upstairs rooms have an uncovered window near the ceiling and lights from the parking lot shone in all night. Breakfast was the usual, it was okay. Location was very good, on a marina with boats on one side, the gulf on the other. Too bad the balcony us not on the gulf side ! Main st, shops, restaurants, Pinellas trail all within a couple of blocks. Easy ride to Tarpon or Clearwater. Would stay again in a heartbeat !

We arrived early and our room was ready. The staff allowed us to check in so nice of them. Staff provided a walking map or the town witch was very helpful and helped. Enjoyed the spa tub in our room nice and deep, plenty of hot water. The shower lacked pressure. Everything was nice and clean, the room was very big with high ceilings caused some acoustic issues with lack of rugs. Breakfast left something to be desired. Bon Appetite however was soooo very good.

"Big pros and BIGGER cons.."

3
03/04/2018

Pros: This hotel is in a perfect location to explore the quaint town of Dunedin since all of the cute shops and restaurants are walkable from here. The water views are beautiful from the balconies and walkways and the rooms have been recently renovated. The cleaning staff are very accommodating and friendly. The nearby restaurant Bon Appetit has excellent food, views and service. If only they ran the attached hotel! Cons: We checked in after a stressful hospital visit only to be met with possibly the rudest front desk attendant I've ever encountered. Kay met us with no smile, greeting or welcome whatsoever and only coldly asked our name. When I told her we had a reservation she rolled her eyes and stated “I know”. The next time we encountered Kay we asked for our room to be cleaned since we kept missing the cleaning staff. She immediately argued with us and blamed us for having a sign on the door. The gracious cleaning woman gladly offered to go clean the room immediately while Kay continued to rudely argue. When we checked out she grabbed our room key in a dramatic gesture as if she was put out. I was actually shocked to see this woman's behavior so blatantly in a major hotel. Why is this person in hospitality? We found ourselves avoiding her like the plague and seeking out Freyda and Silvanna who were both helpful and sweet. Additionally the doors of the hotel are warped which makes it tough to close them so you will hear them slamming loudly all over the building. The floors looked clean but when walking around in my bare feet, they were black on the bottoms. Floors should be mopped not just swept. When the hotel is busy, you will hear your neighbors very clearly through the thin walls. In conclusion I would not recommend this hotel. If you want friendliness, comfort and peace, check into an Airbnb.

30/03/2018

Nice hotel property but not at the Best Western quality I expect in staff and atmosphere. Great location, however the prices at the restaurant are astronomical, the only deal was at the bar outside on Sunday for a $2.68 12oz beer on happy hour. The breakfast is sub-pare, the coffee is Nescafe instant from a machine (no fresh brew here). Also the staff attitude was off-putting, seemed distant and just there to flip the rooms as fast as possible.

"Wanted to use my BW points and black mold and dead spiders"

26/03/2018

The front dest was very confused when I wanted to use my points called BW CS and they told me to contact Hotel. They charged me a $100. deposit which no one told me about just saw on my CC the next day. The bathroom was full of mold and dead spiders in all corners of the room ceiling and floor. I have pictures to prove this. Overall I would not waste my time there, cutting grass at 9 am Saturday morning REALLY.

Stayed 3 nights at this hotel. Asked for a quiet room on my reservation which was made more than a month in advance. Stayed in room 111, close to the restaurant. Room was nice, bed comfortable and bathroom small. The cool thing about this hotel is it is right on the water. One side of the room gave onto parking lot with a sitting area with marina in background. The other side door opens to a large deck area where you can view amazing sunsets. Turns out that our room was very noisy. There is a restaurant and bar at the end of property. We did not go but it did look inviting. Every morning starting at 730 am, the garbage truck and deliveries started at the restaurant. We were there on vacation so waking up to beeping trucks backing up is not our thing. There was also construction by our room so more noise. Not a quiet place. The breakfast had more selection then most place. Because we were there in March, the hotel was busy and breakfast items were getting depleted fast. They need a full time breakfast attendant during their busy time. The pancake machine was broken 2 days in a row (no excuse for that). You can walk to many restaurants from this hotel and to nearby downtown Dunedin.

Three stays totalling 36 nts in deluxe king, 2nd floor. LOVES: on the water; close to town centre; 1 mile walk to Stadium; great staff, breakfasts, room decor, space, kitchenette (sink, micro, fridge). We buy a few dishes at dollar store.

This hotel is not your typical Best Western. First of all it is located right on a marina with a fabulous waterfront restaurant. Secondly, the rooms are tiled as opposed to carpeted. The high ceiling rooms are very big and roomy and include a wet bar. My only gripe would be that the balconies are facing the wrong direction. I love that pancake machine for their free breakfast, but unfortunately it wasn't working well this go-round. Be sure to belly up to that bay front bar and a beautiful sunset if you can't afford a room right here. We walked into lobby on the way to dinner and the manager beat the street price on the Internet by 50 bucks a night! Bravo BW Bravo!

"Nice hotel, great location, expensive for 2 bedroom suite without a shower or a door in the master bath!"

27/02/2018

My guests and I stayed in the two room suite in Dunedin. We were not satisfied with the bathroom layout. The master bathroom was completely open to the room making it difficult to use with privacy. There was also no shower in the master so all guests had to share one shower which was very inconvenient when we thought we would have two showers to share. With the high cost of the room per night, we had expected to have two functioning bathrooms.

"Nothing special, but great location"

My husband and I stayed here due to its proximity to places we were visiting. Also, we LOVE Bon Appetit restaurant, so it seemed like a good idea. The only elevator in this motel is next to the front desk, then you need to walk outside to get to your room....it is hot and unpleasant. The free breakfast is very limited, and the area where it is located is minimally air conditioned. The bathrooms are VERY small, and the bath products substandard, The tissue is like sandpaper. Beds are a bit soft, but OK. Only one air conditioning unit cools the whole room, so it takes a while to cool it off when your arrrive. Very few amenities, but free Wifi is nice. I doubt we would stay here again.

"Outstanding Hotel with Terrible Service"

17/02/2018

It is difficult to imagine a better hotel in a more beautiful setting with such such an awful staff. Starting with the person on the phone when making the reservation to the front desk clerk checking us in to the desk clerk checking us out, it seems that everyone there hates their jobs and hates tourists. Aside from the rudeness on the telephone, to the desk clerk there was absolutely no friendliness, customer service or warmth. The desk clerk made absolutely no mention of my Platinum status with BW and no offers of incentives that go with the program. Aside from the staff the hotel is an amazing place, with incredible rooms in a a beautiful and convenient setting. Hard to believe management has such a great asset with such uncaring employees. If you can tolerate the surly staff it is a great place.

I paid on line for a suit with hot tub. Got up to my room and saw it was missing went to front desk. I was told the room was rented out. Okay can I get credited for the difference. I was told I would have to talk to a manager in the morning. A minute later the front deck called and he said the manager said to take care of me and moved me to a two room suit with hot tub. The room was great. I would stay in it again in a heart beat and would be leaving a pretty good review except for my check out experience. I went to the desk checking out of room --. I was then questioned what was wrong with the first room. The building was great the staff was frustrating.

"Clean Room; Great View!"

08/02/2018

Hotel is just two stories so not really over crowded. Large room with refrigerator, microwave, coffee maker. Rm. was expensive, but it was prime season. Bare floors which did not provide any insulation for noise created in room next to ours. Front desk rep was very nice. Complimentary breakfast, which served our needs. Toilet location could be a problem for lg. person. View of marina on one side & bay view on other was great! Great location within walking distance to tour the quaint town, which has good food and pubs! Definitely recommend.

"Fantastic location, with a small time motel feel."

06/02/2018

The hotel is in a great location, on the water and one block from the cute little walkable town with lots of pubs, cafes, and restaurants. I recommend a second floor room nearer the water, for the views. Some people may not like the fact that it overlooks the marina and parking lot but I prefer that because you can watch all the activities going on. The room was very spacious and has a nice TV, good wifi, a fridge and a microwave. The beds were comfortable. One issue is that the large cathedral ceiling creates a huge window at the top with no coverings, so it stays fully light all night! The bathroom is quite small and it is far from the HVAC so it's cold when it's chilly outside, but we turned on the tanning light. The breakfast was complimentary and it had hot good, but the overall quality of the food was pretty fair. We like the fact that this property is pet friendly, even though we can't bring our pets because we flew to Tampa. The best part of this is the location, location, location! Also, there are very few options in Dunedin for hotel style lodging. I recommend this property and we will likely return.

"Mixed Feelings"

04/02/2018

I only stayed one night for a workshop and picked the room with the large Jacuzzi. Well worth the extra $$. However, I know the place is on the water and at the marina, but I still felt it a bit overpriced. The toilet was crammed into an alcove where I could barely maneuver. I'm not a small person, but anyone much larger would have a difficult time. The bathroom still retained its tub/shower combo. A better use of space (since there's a Jacuzzi) would be to take out the tub, make more room for the toilet area, and just have a shower in the bathroom. One thing I appreciated was the proximity to all the shops and restaurants. Oh, the folks at the front desk might want to acknowledge a guest when they first walk up to the counter, rather than having the guest wait while the staff reads a piece of paper. I guess whatever was on the paper must have been incredibly important, more so than the paying guest standing right in front of them. A simple "I'll be right with you!" acknowledgement would have been polite.

We stayed here for a two night romantic getaway recently and had a wonderful time. The rooms are very charming. The hotel itself is somewhat dated but very clean. The location is awesome centrally located in the middle of Dunedin. Walking distance to numerous shops and restaurants. The wife and I ate at the hotel one evening and had a wonderful experience. We are from Florida and must say that even with kids why would anyone stay in Clearwater when you could stay here just 5 miles away. Take a trip to Honeymoon Island and you have a great beach that feels very private.

You can't beat the views from this hotel of the inland water ways! The hotel's pool was nice and clean and plenty of chairs. The décor in the room is updated and the tile floor is awesome for a hotel room. Plenty of friendly folks vacationing and welcomes dogs. Consider this hotel when you visit this area. Restaurants, shops and bars all in walking distance which is great!

"Bicycle rental a dud"

2
26/11/2017

We didn't stay at the property, but rented a 4 seater bicycle cart from them. While they did warn us it was a good workout, we had no idea it was such a tough slug. We were a senior, an eight year old and a 40 something. They should have talked us out of it. The service was terrible...poor directions, no instructions, and we were left on our own to figure out how to get the contraption off a high curb and out of the parking lot. It was $35 for an hour and we were back within 20 minutes because we couldn't work the darn thing. No one told us what to do with the bike on our return, so we brought it to the front door of the hotel. The staff were pretty annoyed that they would have to return it up onto the curb where the others were stored. We told them they didn't give us proper directions or instructions and they said it wasn't up to them as they don't own the company, just rent on their behalf, so they don't have to provide service. If I walk in to a Best Western, sign a form provided by a hotel employee and pay the hotel employee, in my mind, as a consumer, I have just rented from Best Western and it's on your team to properly represent your brand. A poor $35 rental experience just bought you a poor perception from this consumer and I won't consider your property in the future.

11/11/2017

What a very special part of America for a hotel to be located. At the very end of a very quaint Main Street of the town of Dunedin, Florida. The location of this hotel is amazing; charters and boat activities right across the street. Park your car for a chill for a couple days and enjoy the easy walk up and down Dunedin. We were very impressed with the housekeeping staff; my room was spotless and fresh every morning of my four days spent here. I got there on a Tuesday and the Bon Appetit restaurant was GREAT and lively; then we went back Thursday and the bartender ignored us for ten minutes (and there were only two others at the very quiet bar) so we went up the street to Tony's Pizza. We went back Friday for our last meal despite the rude bartender and the Butternut squash was delicious but the Happy Hour fired bologna sandwich somewhat contradicts the theme of this very pricey restaurant and it was super gross and thick bologna. The cheese plate with apricots and honey was average. I was chraged 30.00 over on my last night there and the girls (Silvana and Karen) just passed the buck and told me to call the manager and who wants to deal with that? It is their incompetence, not mine. I was told the last night (I moved rooms, smaller room in fact) would be the same or cheaper and when I called to Karen about it I reminded her what she told me and she lied and was like"oh i said it was a weekend so it would be more' - bologna (again lol), if that was the case i would have stuck with my original plans but I was like Ok perfect and it was 30.00 more) whatever Karen, we both know the truth and the rest of Dunedin was so fabulous and the young Manager fellow was so sweet, and the breakfast lady was very thoughtful and kind, I'll consider it a tip to the town.

The hotel is older and the pool is small; however, the rooms (with tile floors) are very clean, comfortable and quiet. There are small parks nearby to walk your pet. The hotel is a short drive to the white sands of Honeymoon Beach State Park. The management and staff are efficient and friendly. This is a great place to stay and explore the lovely waterside Dunedin or take the short drive to Honeymoon Beach.

We really like the location it is relatively close to downtown as well as baseball . We are disappointed the hotel no longer has any affiliation with the restaurant.

"Great location, Big Rooms, Lovely view out back, some pros and cons"

3
24/09/2017

The location is great. Walkable to downtown. Rooms are big. Beds are comfortable. Each room has mini-fridge, microwave, sink area. Some furniture is dated, and they could do more to use the room space to make sitting areas with more than just 1 old armchair. A/C is not central, the unit is room only, and is a little noisy. It doesnt really reach the bathroom - so we usually bring a fan to help circulate area/clear bathroom of steam. While there are balconies, the a/c unit blows hot air out there, so its not very comfortable to sit. The odd thing about this location is that its built "backwards" the water view is on the entry area, does have a few benches, but is not private, its the walkway to all rooms. Balconies face the parking lot. While they offer "marina view" rooms, its not really overlooking the marina - it is across two parking areas. The room we had this time had loose electrical outlets and light switch outlets. The electrical outlet behind bed was barely connected to the wall (cracked and very loose), which was a little scary. The view from walkway to your room is amazing, looks over the water and is lovely, breezy. Room prices are good. The old breakfast at Bon Appetit was wonderful. The new breakfast was poor at best. Burnt "eggs", limp bacon, just not fresh. We ate breakfast elsewhere after the first bad morning. We honestly love the location, just cant ignore that there are some upgrades and fixes needed. Our front and balcony door, both didnt seem to lock right, were hard to open/close, cracked paint, etc (and not hurricane damage, just lack of upkeep). I hope they take care to upgrade/get things back to top notch soon. It would be a shame to have this location go further downhill. Also - one note, the valet at restaurant steal your parking space if you leave. We moved a cone they set up to get our spot back in front of the hotel. I dont think its appropriate for valet/restaurant to nab the spots in front of rooms. They can have farther spots or non, room-front spots. Guests should have their room spaces. This is not a bad review, it is one of hope that you fix things and get everything back to the lovely place we first stayed 10 years ago. We're rooting for you.

15/09/2017

We took a shuttle from the Tampa Airport and arrived around 12:15 PM, well before the 3:00 check in time. The staff was very cordial and told us that our room was in fact, ready. Located on the Dunedin Channel, the door of the room had a wonderful view of the water. The bedroom was clean and bright. The bathroom was small, but also clean. The door off the bedroom led to a balcony, where we could sit and view the parking lot, listen to the live music at the Bon Appetit restaurant, and watch the boats at the marina. The hotel had a continental breakfast, which included your ordinary hotel breakfast food. It was in walking distance of Main Street and the historic downtown area, with many restaurants and local shops. Check out time is 11:00 AM, but since our shuttle back to the airport wasn't scheduled to arrive until 1:30, we asked for a late check-out. Once again, the staff was cordial and allowed us to stay until 1:00 PM, giving us time to grab lunch at a nearby restaurant before leaving. We hope to relocate to the Dunedin area and recommend this hotel.

We stayed at this hotel for a wedding. The town it is located in is stunning. A nice american town. Up on arriving, check in was simple and the receptionist was really nice. She gave us all the information we needed. We had a room on the first floor, the room itself was a nice size and nice views either side, one side had the harbor and the other had the sea. Breakfast was standard but really nice. Thoroughly enjoyed it. Overall really nice hotel and lots of sealife if you look into the sea. Look closely and you may see dolphins :) There is one downside though...if you are in a room on the first floor, at night and when you want to go sleep, it lets ALOT of light in. Above the door & windows lives another window than can not be covered.

HEARTLESS IN HURRICANE IRMA. While enroute to the hotel from Fort Lauderdale to seek refuge from hurricane Irma before it changed path we were running out of gas in heavy traffic and had to turn back with our three pug dogs. When talking to the person in charge to let them know that we would arrive the next day after we regrouped and hopefully found gasoline, we found that the hotel was under mandatory evacuation starting 6:30 am that day. She heartlessly charged us the cancellation for a room that we couldn't get to and she knew we would have to leave before sunrise, even after advising her of our Governor's plea for hotels to be tolerant of late arrivals. We ended up at a Best Western in Orlando, and they have been so helpful.

My husband and I stayed just the other night for a quick getaway and it was just grand!! The rooms are all nicely appointed but the ones on the second floor had high ceilings and a huge balcony and a mico and fridge. I loved the waterside pier entrance and the balcony overlooking the marina. The town and surrounding area had lots of restaurants and cafes and of course the famous Bon Appetit which now has a beautiful outside bar and music since we were here last many years ago!! The lunch outside was great and the inside sunset table for dinner was really outstanding!! The staff was just great and most helpful and the HOT breakfast was a nice surprise and very good quality!! Great for locals and a must for those visiting the area with the causeway so close and the famous Honeymoon Island State Park and Caledisi Island.

Last weekend we stayed at the Best Western in Dunedin. We were pleased with our accommodations. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The Breakfast buffet was one of the nicest ones with have had staying at Best Westerns. The pool was clean and roped off and people with little children stayed in the shallow end of the pool. The location was great. Main Street Dunedin had cute shops and restaurants. We were close enough to Tarpon Springs and Clearwater Beach. We attended the Hippie Fest in Tarpon Springs. All and all a good time. We would go back again for another visit.

Stayed here two nights, one before and one after a bus excursion. Had a great experience both times. Check in was a breeze and our room was spacious, bright and clean. It is obviously an older, renovated building, but it has been tastefully done and is well kept. The lobby is bright and welcoming. The front desk staff was friendly and efficient. The breakfast attendant was sweet and very helpful. The marina with boat tours is right across the parking lot. I hope to come back for a fishing trip or boat tour. The view out the back door of our first floor room, front door of our second floor room, is beautiful. You are right on the water. As another reviewer wrote, more chairs and a few bistro tables on that corridor would make it a comfy spot to have your morning coffee as the sun comes up over the water. Probably since it's a "walkway" they can't due to liability. Not their fault. The homes that you can see along Victoria Drive are gorgeous. A great area. There are shops, restaurants and parks close by and the BWP has bicycles you can rent to check out the area. I will be back. I only wish the weekend prices were as reasonable as the weekday rates.

"Front desk staff thinks they are the customer and you should be grateful they take your money"

09/08/2017

Not much choice of where to stay in this area but try and avoid this place if you can. Our less than ideal experience began with check-in. Someone should make a video of the front desk staff and use it as a "Before" video in a customer service training class. Hard to describe how they make you feel but the word customer certainly doesn't apply. And, it's not just one of them. It was everyone we encountered. You seem to bother them when you ask them to do their job. Here's an example -- their restaurant was under-going renovation when we were there. They were distributing brown bags of apples and packaged muffins. As if that wasn't bad enough, they didn't tell us about it. We only realized they were doing this after another guest told us. We had already stayed there two nights and when we told the front desk that no one informed us about the packages, she actually said to us "Well, you should have asked." Then, we asked for the packages for the two days we didn't get ones because we didn't know about them and she said "No." We like fruit which is the only reason we asked. The other thing about this hotel is that the architect who designed it doesn't seem to have visited the property before the building was built! The great view is from the outdoor hallway leading to the rooms. The balconies and the rooms overlook the parking lot. Not good planning. The rooms are clean but sparsely furnished with rather tired things. I had to extend my stay and wish I had been somewhere else! There was a problem with my bill (they double charged me for one item) and the good news is that I finally spoke with someone at the front desk who was helpful -- Thanks to Silviana for helping me.

I have stayed here 4 times and am planning on staying 2 more times this year. I love the location, close to shops and fav restaurants. Love the pool, it is big and was clean, no algea on my visits. Same thing with hot tub. They now have breakfast which they did not have my previous visits, so thats a great addition. My rooms were always clean as well as the patio. I took my dog last time and stayed 2 weeks. The staff friendly and helpful. I do wish they had a guest laundry like the HIE has because I don't like to go to laundromats. That would be helpful. The views at sunset are wonderful, the hotel feels very tropical. Landscaping is very nice but around the pool the landscaping needs a redo. The pool area is very relaxing and landscaping around should compliment it. The rooms are a good size and colorful. I love that the floors are tiled too. The bathroom in my last stay was updated. My only negative was that the fridge is full of drinks for purchase but I would prefer it empty so I can put my own drinks and food in it. Overall, without these few issues I would give 5 stars.

My husband and I stayed here about 5 years ago and were so pleased by location, quality of stay and friendly attitude of staff. Things were not quite as wonderful this past week. A great thing is that the city of Dunedin and this property are now dog friendly. We recommended this property to friends who were there for the week and we drove to meet them for a night with our 2 dogs. They require a $50 pet deposit which is refundable after a room check. The fee for the dogs was minimal at $20 per day. The room was clean and odorless. The sheets are now a poly-blend and not as comfy as before. The bed was comfortable. It was obvious that the property was maintained. The room had all one would need for a stay. Staff was kind and welcoming upon arrival. We just stayed for one night. The next morning, I went to grab some coffee. There was a staff person at the desk who did not even bother to look up or greet. The coffee was awful. It is a machine that makes instant coffee. The breakfast selection was on par with a non-BW plus. There was no microwave to warm rolls and only a toaster. After breakfast, I decided to get a swim. The pool is in need of a fresh paint coat but it had algae on the sides. No way was I getting in that!! Then there was check-out. The same humorless woman, Frieda, who ignored people, was the only one at the desk. I told of reservation problems when I called the place and got excuses. I told of the algae and got defensive, "Well, we clean the pool daily." Lie.....that amount of algae takes more then 24 hours to develop. Then, their machine did not accept my Visa. This was a GOOD card but it became my problem. This woman's unpleasant attitude was awful. She later told my girlfriend that it is ok to swim in algae. My bill after a $20 BW coupon was $187.00. That seems a bit much for a totally average room with poly-blend sheets. If staying here, get a room on the second floor. The rooms appear larger due to loft ceiling and are not as bright at night.

DO NOT stay here. Air conditioning unit sounded like a helicopter taking off and landing all night. I complained about pile of bird crap right outside my door on arrival and wasn't even addressed until 2 days later. Breakfast was horrible. Wi-fi was very slow. Shower water pressure was feeble. Front desk personnel were border line rude. Price of hotel was outrageous especially considering being summer season.

My daughter's softball team stayed here for a week long tournament and it was perfect! It was a 10 minute drive to Honeymoon Island State Park/beach and restaurants and little shops were all within walking distance. The pool was perfect. The hotel had a daily breakfast which could use a little more variety on a daily basis but we were thankful to have breakfast included every day! The views were beautiful and we went on the Parrotdise Express Sunset Cruise right from the dock across the street and it was amazing too!

We obviously decided to have a great seafood lunch there and everybody we spoke to said Freda is known for her rudeness at that hotel..., and how they put up with her I can't imagine because everything is about service and customer relations. nevertheless they just lost our business we're here for the weekend we were looking for a place to stay I guess we will be staying at an Airbnb I will cc this to Best Western Corporate offices How Rude

17/07/2017

We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights to be closer to visit our friends who live in Dunedin. Overall the hotel is clean, the room was clean. The drawback to the room was the fact that we could hear occupants on either side of us. That was not good. I don't understand why the hotel was ever built with the balconies facing the parking lot and beyond that, the view of small marina and adjacent condo high rise, when on the opposite side, lies the quiet and expansive bay. Too bad the rooms/balconies were not directly situated to view the bay. Just understand that when booking your room. The price point for the room was a bit high for this room, in my opinion. If you like old Florida feel and you want to be in walking distance to small main town area of Dunedin then you might be okay with this hotel.

This is a very old property with some updates but a nice location on the water. You can only put so much lipstick on something like this. Staff is helpful but as an example the fitness center is very small with equip that does not work in many cases. Rooms are poorly decorated with inadequate A/C and lighting.

We wanted a hotel on the water. The Clearwater hotels were too expensive. The rooms were renovated in 2102. We had a bay view on one side and a balcony on the other. I loved the tile flooring throughout the room. It was perfectly located to beaches and restaurants. The staff was friendly and helpful. We would definitely stay there again.

We booked 1 night stay while visiting honeymoon island. We were happy to be on the 2nd floor, we heard no noise from anyone. The rooms were clean and updated with a tropical feel. I loved the look of the bathroom and the heat lamps were an added bonus. There was a private balcony facing the marina and from the entry you could see the bay. Looking at the bay we saw a dolphin, stingray, and roseate spoonbill. The only thing that some people may not like is there was pigeon poo by our room 210, and a pigeon who spent the night there. Didn't bother us but it may some others. The pool and hot tub were nice, there were bikes u could rent to ride down town, we rented the 6 seater for our family of 5, we had fun. Beds were very soft and comfy, we had a good night's stay and we all enjoyed the complimentary breakfast in the morning!

The rooms were very spacious and the beds were comfortable. It was easy to get to downtown (2 blocks) to many shops and restaurants. We easily rented bikes from the hotel and the Pinellas trail was again 2 blocks away. The view from the deck was beautiful (we only wished we could see it from our room). The staff was very courteous and helpful (especially Janciel-not sure of the spelling).

This hotel is in a perfect location to enjoy the Florida Sun Coast! It is an easy walk to the quaint shops of Dunedin as well as the marina and restaurants.

Freyda was amazing. We stayed for 4 nights and on the 2nd day (of our 6 days), we asked her is she knew where we can get some beach chairs. It turned out that one of her previous guests, like us, were on vacation and flew in by plane. They purchased beach chairs but for their trip, however being they could not take them back on the plane, they left them with Freyda. This nice, sweet lady let us borrow those 2 chairs for the rest of our visit. They came in handy and it saved as some money. We ended up purchasing an umbrella and 2 sand mats, which we also ended up leaving there for a next guest(s). Thank you Freyda for making our stay as enjoyable as possible.

"Front Desk is Exceptional"

27/06/2017

If you are searching for places in Dunedin, this is really the "only" place that offers the triumvirate of location, view, and access. The hotel is only 2 stories, but the rooms are HUGE. It is located at the marina ... the beginning (or end) of Dunedin. You are at the epicenter, if you stay here. Within 100 steps, you have many options for dining (both casual or elegant), coffee shops, pubs, and shopping. Once you park, you won't have to get in your car until you leave for home. The hotel has bike rentals so you can enjoy the Pinellas Trail and all its dining/shopping options. Once day, we took bikes up the Pinellas Trail to Ozona Blue marina and it was an easy ride. The hotel offers breakfast until 10am and provides several juice options, along with cereal, boiled eggs, yogurt, pastries, pancakes, bacon, sausage and cheese omelets. The down side of being at the marina is that the street lights shine in the large windows at night, so bring your eye shades if you are a sensitive sleeper. Lastly, the heart of this hotel (in my opinion) is front desk Freyda. She's savvy, seen it all, and would bend over backwards to help you out if something isn't to your liking. She is an incredible ambassador of the BW Yacht Harbor. Want something done right? Ask Freyda.

An excellent location on the water front. Room was good and very comfortable. Like the previous reviewer, I was initially concerned with the proximity of the car park, but then we realised that the room had a rear door that opened onto a long veranda overlooking the sea. So we just moved the 2 chairs and the table from the front balcony, to the back veranda, grabbed a few beers and sat watching the pelicans fishing. Even a lone dolphin swam by. We ate across the car park at the harbour café. All in all, an excellent stay. Would return.

"Nice area and quiet location"

21/06/2017

This hotel is right on the water. It's very scenic and was very quiet. The only thing I didn't like was the fact that I picked a bay view thinking the balcony looked out at the bay. While the door to the room faced the bay, the balcony actually faced the parking lot and marina. It was still very pretty, just not what I was expecting.

20/06/2017

Hotel is conveniently located to down town. If you don't plan to spend your day at hotel, it has the basics. They are pet friendly, but some guess choose not to pick up after their pets which doe not make it appealing. Breakfast is ok, if you just need something to fill you up before you start your day. Housekeeping was great. Front desk service was sub-par.

The front desk woma was awufully ride and grumpy. We couldn't even ask jer a simple question without her responding rudely. There was a roach in one of the rooms that a family member of our group was staying in and her response was they could still stay in there it's only a water bug. And as guests we shouldn't have to search for a parking spot because the restaurant valet has taken over the hotel parking. There was no parking because of the restaurant. The stay wasn't bad but Freyda, the hotel front clerk made it horrible and the restaurant did too.

WOWWWWWWWW! What a Super-perfect location. Great for our family vacation and B-day celebration. The room was decorated so stylish- kinda' Key West vibe and size plus cleaness was matched by comfort. You have a mini fridge and microwave which is perfect for families on the go like ours. The Lovely pool and jacuzzi were both sparkling clean and not overcrowded plus bathrooms were well maintained as well. The lobby smelled delicious and chek-in was great plus you get good parking-for FRee--BRAVO!!! This place ROCKS--It is Right on the Marina so what more do you want? The town is available for grabs at walking distance or if like us--at bike rental-which they do have and offer. Dunedin's Great shops, restaurants etc..are but minutes from and The hotel Staff was sooo nice and accomodating-including its service staff /housekeepers and laundry attendants. I will definitely come back. I also loved that the floors are tiled and not carpeted -it prevents pest and unseen dirt in room which fits excellent w/my daughter as she suffers from severe allergies. WE LOVED IT HERE and as long as NOTHING changes and prices remain fair w/accomodations; This is our new found spot for vacation w/friends and family. Just keep it quiet plzzz -as so not to bring in the wrong type of crowds over here. Good job-keep it going!

18/05/2017

My husband and I decided on an impromptu visit for our 42nd anniversary. We had a very enjoyable 3 night stay at Best Western Plus Yacht Harbor Inn. The inn is located beside the marina and right on the water. Everything was very clean and in order in our room. The beds, pillows and linens were clean and comfortable as well. The 2nd floor rooms have vaulted ceilings which gives the room an open, airy feel along with plantation style shutters, no blackout drapes, so if you like total darkness for sleeping a 1st floor room may be more suitable. I appreciated the tile flooring as I have allergies so carpeting is often a problem. The AC worked extremely well. The bathroom was sparkly clean and the towels were fluffy and soft. There is a small refrigerator stocked with bottled water, soft drinks and snacks available for purchase and a small microwave. The one cup coffeemaker (not a Keurig) is an inferior option in my opinion, but we travel with a small 4 cup drip coffeemaker so no worries there. The complimentary breakfast is adequate with quite a few options and what one would expect from this type of property. The pool and grounds were clean and well maintained. There is an outdoor bar with live music and the Bon Apetit restaurant. All of the staff we encountered seemed professional and friendly. The location is so convenient and in close proximity to downtown Dunedin which is a nice change of pace and very walkable. The Inn is also well situated for a quick trip to Honeymoon Island State Park and the gorgeous beaches. I can't see any faults or discrepancies with this property, it's not the Ritz Carlton so don't arrive with that expectation. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely choose this property again based on the positive experience.

This hotel is in a great location. It has a beautiful view of the bay and is walking distance to shops and restaurants. It is also a short drive to Clearwater. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. The walls are thin and you can hear noise, however, it didn't become a problem because the neighbors quieted down by 10:30 pm. Parking can be a problem on weekend nights because of the restaurant next to the hotel, but that is usually resolved by 9 pm. I would stay here again.

Staff is not professional or at least friendly. Had a few issues and they acted as if I was inconvenience them for having to solve a problem. Had roaches and after two days of complaints they sprayed the room which left a bad oder to deal with.

"Dunedin Best Western A Great Stay!"

12/05/2017

I travel a lot for work in Arizona, so this trip was a pleasure stay to visit family. I look for clean, comfortable, internet, easy access outlets, and professional/helpful staff. This property has all that. Location is great - we asked for a room facing the water. Would recommend and stay myself again.

Stayed two nights at the Yacht Harbor Inn, Dunedin. Rooms were clean, well appointed, internet satisfactory. The balconies were spacious to sit comfortably and included table. Faced the marina which was nice. The only negative is if you stay on the second floor, depending on room, may be a bit of a walk from the elevator to room as hotel is two story and fairly long. Renovations being made to lobby for breakfast seating; until complete breakfast is in a bag and take back to room.

This hotel was ok, clean bed comfortable, but no view from your balcony like I was told your view is of the pool, the view of the gulf is on the back hallway where you enter your room..the upstairs room have high ceiling which let the light in from outside so it's almost daylight in your room all night long. make sure you find out what the taxes to be tacked on are, cause they don't tell you when they quote you a price.

Selection for this particular BW-hotel made very easy..., incredible location, great reviews and CLEANLINESS (inspection of: bed linen layers, shower drain, etc.) Another BW-sales pitch for this hotel is the marina, boat-slips & pier just outside the 'front door' of the beautiful room and the coastline view of St. Joseph's Sound right outside of the room's 'backdoor'. I shared pics of this hotel campus with family & friends; too nice to keep to one's self. Great little shops, pretty park/town center; wish I could have stayed longer. What a wonderful stay; great value!

very beautiful place very clean nice rooms, the early morning maintenance worker's making noise in the parking lot and not having a hot breakfast was not what I had in mine the morning of my honeymoon and the HBO was not working but don't take this the wrong way this is a very nice place to stay.

The Yacht Harbor Inn is not perfect and the desk staff was not the nicest I have ever met, but it was a wonderful place to stay. The room was exceptionally clean. Everything worked properly and our 2nd floor room had a very unique style which made it very homey! The views from our balcony and from the back walkway were wonderful. It was a great home base for our trip. It is located near many attractions, yet not in a bunch of traffic. Honeymoon Island State Park is an EASY five minute drive from here. Downtown Clearwater Beach is about 10 minutes. There is easy in and out access with lots of restaurants and shops within walking distance. The fairly large pool was in good condition and the water was warm. The lobby was undergoing renovations, so the free breakfast was a "Grab n Go" bag with an apple, muffins, granola bar, and bag of water. It was actually not bad for what it was. We checked in after dark and the long, somewhat dark path along the water to the room was a bit intimidating, but the first time we saw it in the daylight more than made up for it. I would definitely stay here again. If you book, get a second floor room with a balcony.

"Stay somewhere else"

The room is small, tiny bathroom with no fan. The beds are squeaking, it woke me up couple times during the night when my wife got out for the bathroom. It has a room refrigerator but full of snacks, sodas and bottle of waters for sale and no room for guest use it.

"Beautiful setting"

24/04/2017

Hotel sits right on the water/boat dock. Rooms are very nice, there is a lot of light in the room at night from the boat dock even with the blinds closed. Close to beaches, which are fabulous! The door on our room wouldn't lock due to swelling in the door/door jam. The staff that checked us in was wonderful but the lady who checked us out had horrible customer service. She thought she knew what we were saying before we said it, over spoke and cut us off while we were trying to talk.

"Stay somewhere else!!"

23/04/2017

The list of issues I had with this hotel are too many to list. The highlights are that the front desk staff was incredibly rude. The room and the pool area were in ill repair. After having a pool side umbrella fall on me and pin me to my chair, the staff was more concerned about the umbrella than my well being. There was chicken wings in the bottom of the pool, the entire 3 days we were there. Issues with both the bathroom sink as well as the electrical outlets in the tiny bathroom with no fan, The list goes on. Do yourself a favor and stay someplace else in this cute little town.

"A Beautiful Find"

16/04/2017

We stayed at this hotel for one night whilst visiting Orlando and the Disney parks. The hotel was just as we had imagined and the views were absolutely stunning. We were surprised at how close to the main town we were and how beautifully quaint it was. Plenty of places to eat and nice boutique shops. We travelled with our five year old who was made most welcome and enjoyed swimming in the pool in the morning...We had it all to ourselves. We didn't find the location noisy. The restaurant nearby shuts at 11pm and then all you can hear is a couple of ship masts clanging but that's a nice sound! We visited the beautiful Honeymoon State Park which is a must. North Beach is stunning. We also visited Clearwater beach and John Pass Boardwalk. We would definitely stay here again. Thankyou for having us. *Be aware that the breakfast room is unavailable at the moment. We were happy with a grab and go breakfast but are aware that some might not be*

Needs a complete remodel, they ran out of coffee the first morning, and the water side of the rooms is a wall. Daytime staff was very rude and hung up on me. They also charged my card twice causing money to be help for 4 days. They need to either tear it down and build new or a complete remodel.

03/04/2017

Stayed here for 3 nights while in the area on business. My room was on the first floor so it was easy to go in and out. What was odd was the "porch" with a table and chairs faced the parking lot and the waterview was on the other side of the room with no window. The breakfast area was being renovated and you had to ask for a "Grab n Go" breakfast. The hotel is within walking distance of a nice little downtown area with shops and restaurants.

"Location and room size makes the rating 4/5"

10/11/2016

Location is excellent: next to the water and within walking distance of heritage downtown wit a bunch of unique shops and a variety of good restaurants. The downtown is one block away and easily walkable. Park the car and walk or if you wish to visit some of the other communities, jump on the Jolly Trolley. Seniors are able to use public transportation for 2.50 a day. I recommend seeing tarpon springs. Hotel: older but reasonable. On the water and terrific solitude views outside your back door.our king room is spacious and well equipped with a fridge, microwave, second sink, and refreshment/snack storage. Floors are tiled.bathroom large. Staff: some of the other reviews may, or may not be legitimate. We have not found the staff to be extrovert or outgoing happy, but the have always done their job with us and interacted pleasantly enough when treated politely and respectfully. Pool: well maintained, clear and clean. Allowing me to exercise on a daily basis 13/13, with laps and resistance exercises. Restaurant: Bon Appetite , on the water for great sunsets and views. Seafood menus (for us landlubbers) is extensive and well presented. Must have the Grubber and Stone Crabs. We eat here once a week as it is special.

STAYED AT THIS HOTEL DUE TO LOCATION WHILE VISITING A FR IEND IN ASSISTED LIVING.STAY DATE 10-21 WITH CHECK OUT 10-25. ON 10-23 could not sit on balcony due to a repairman with a loud saw below my room that never stopped. On the morning of my departure, the repairman woke me up at 8 AM with the saw never stopping right under my room. Not the idea of a great departure feelingI complained to manager on my check out and he had an attitude that you should ha ve complained and move to another room or we could move the repairman. They knew the room where he was working was occupied so why should I- the Customer- have to tell them about the noise. MAKE SURE THE UPGRADES ARE DONE BEFORE STAYING HERE.

"Construction ruined a nice place"

28/10/2016

This is an upscale Best Western. Rooms were very large with nice amenities. Unfortunately, they were doing construction on the hotel with a lot of loud work, including a power saw in the parking lot at 8:15 am. and workers using screw guns on next floor up right over our heads. We decided to cut our trip short and check out. It was only then that we were offered the opportunity to move to the other end of the hotel. Why they didn't offer that when we checked in remains a mystery. Not sure that would have helped. We should have known things would not be good when they were using sledge hammers above the lobby when we arrived. No discount offered and the hotel was very expensive for a Best Western. Also, no breakfast, not even coffee unless you go to the restaurant and pay $$$ for it. Just not a good experience.

"The Best Western Is Old And Dirty"

25/10/2016

The rooms and the hotel are very outdated. I paid $ 203.00 for a not so nice room. The parking was not good. The hotel is dirty on the outside. The location is convenient to the quaint town of Dunedin. , and that's what you're paying for is the location. Clearwater is ten minutes away, and you get all the big name hotels there and the beach is beautiful.

Hotel is older, but well kept and clean. Staff is extremely helpful and pleasant. There is a pool - didn't see anyone actually use it. GREAT location. Restaurant was great! Loved the outdoor bar.

I'm a repeat visitor to the YH Inn. I keep coming back because I appreciate the location and the layout of the rooms, love the balcony. Its an idyllic spot, quiet and good proximity to services and the town of Dunedin, as well as Clearwater, without the crowds and noise. I'd stay at the YH Inn anyday over those high rise jam packed hotels in Clearwater Beach.

"Sill Good but Showing Its Age"

12/10/2016

Every year we stay here while in Dunedin. The hotel is undergoing some changes (adding a breakfast room where they did not offer their own breakfast before - not ready yet, maybe by the Spring of 2017). In the meanwhile, rates have jumped and while they formerly offered vouchers for breakfast at the restaurant next door, these have been dropped, effectively further increasing rates. Pigeons are a problem - they roost in the overhead rafters and leave their mark - so watch your step and your head. The rooms are still comfortable, large and offer all the amenities. Age is becoming an issue - it looks its 40 years old.

Spectacular location with multiple water views. Easy walking distance to wide variety of food and bar options. Convenient to beaches and attractions. Newly renovated rooms with vary attractive and comfortable decor. Furnishing are new. Only negative comment would be the lack of door seals/sweeps at the base of the rooms doors. Easy fix and may have been overlooked during ongoing renovation.

Dunedin is our get a way 2 or 3 times a year. The food at the Bon Appetite was fabulous and service was 5 star in our books. You can't go wrong staying at the Best Western Plus Yacht Harbor Inn. I recommend it to all.

Great location with a pier, water on both sides and a gourmet restaurant next to the hotel. Beautiful sunsets. Spacious rooms with balconies. Easy walking distance to numerous Dunedin restaurants and shops. Check out the artwork by Bill Renc at his art shop. Short distance to Honeymoon Island, Caladesi Beach --one of the top 10 beaches in some in some past rankings by Mr. Beach-- and the Sponge Docks of Tarpon Springs. All can be reached by the Jolly Trolley-- although to reach Caladesi Beach you will then need to take the shuttle boat.

"BAYVIEW COMFORT"

You can't beat the view and location of this BW! Bayview Sunsets out the front door of your room and view of the marina off your patio/balcony. Bright Florida décor, comfy beds and a nice wet bar area in the room, nice large bathroom also. Walk from the hotel property to the quaint downtown shops and cafes of Dunedin and please don't miss the Painted Fish Art Gallery! You are also so close to Honeymoon Island and Tarpon Springs is just 9 miles to the North! Can't wait to go back for another get away!

01/09/2016

Hello Alexandra - we really wanted to thank your staff for being so caring when we were unexpectedly in need of a room. We got home from a trip to find electrical work incomplete and power off. Prior to moving to Dunedin - we stayed at the hotel a few times and liked the clean and spacious rooms. As we are now Dunedin residents - we always recommend the hotel as the location, amenities and vibe are unbeatable. For my clients looking for a home in Dunedin - this spot is perfect and pet-friendly. We now have fully come to appreciate the great service. Just the other day as we took a walk around town - we came across one of your groundskeepers who was very pleasant to chat with. He had a lot of pride in keeping the grounds nice and neat. Things like this and the young lady from the front desk being so pleasant are telling of the great culture your facility must have. This hotel sits at a marina, has its own wonderful restaurant and bar, and is tied right into Downtown Dunedin which has quickly become a destination in and of itself. A quick spin gets you to the world famous beaches of Clearwater Beach and Honeymoon Island. It really is a great deal for all that you get.

"Experience beach resort"

30/08/2016

Good location. Clean rooms but they have it set up so everything costs. They have a coffee pot but you have to pay $1 for the little coffee cup inserts. The refrigerator is full of candy, pop, etc. but you have to bag it up and set it aside and then put it back when you leave. Check out is not as easy as most BW's. I couldn't get get late check out on both rooms and I had to find out after 7am if I could do that. I did get 1 room for late checkout. Don't pay for a voucher to eat at the restaurant. It costs $7.50 and children are charged $4.50 for a bowl of cereal. The front desk has a good staff. I was told I would have rooms by the pool but when I got there I was told there was renovations and it would be too noisy. I had ask about a suite when I made the reservations and they said the suites were on the second floor. No suites by the pool. They put me on the second floor and when I ask about suites, she just said my rooms were larger rooms than regular rooms. I again ask about suites and she just said I have larger rooms.

"Nicely Located Hotel, Skip the Balcony Room"

4
28/08/2016

The hotel is in a great location, directly on the marina with Edgewater Park and all the Main Street shops within EASY walking distance. We booked a Balcony room with a water view and were very disappointed. The room was very nice, quite large and nicely furnished. The balcony looked over the parking lot and no view of the water. However the entrance to our room, did look over the water, so we took the chairs from the balcony and spent our time outside our room door, enjoying the view. The staff was very friendly and you can purchase breakfast vouchers for Bon Appetit restaurant which was excellent. We would stay here again, just not in a balcony water view room.

"A bit expensive but worth it"

25/08/2016

Very nice room (single King), second floor, water on one side and marina on the other. Very nicely appointed, spacious and pleasantly decorated room. A private balcony on the marina side, walkway with benches on the water side. Has those numerous small pillows that seem to be popular nowadays. Friendly staff and good nearby eats. Overall a very pleasant and comfortable hotel. Just a bit pricey for my typical preference. And the traffic can be brutal everywhere around here.

"Great setting, and that's all"

21/08/2016

This is an aging property on a spectacular site that has the Dunedin Marina on one side of the room and the open waters of St. Joseph Sound on the other. Everything else about this hotel is outdated and poorly designed for a modern hotel experience. Next time I would stay at one of the other quality chain hotels nearby and enjoy the waterfront at public parks, which are plentiful in the area.

15/08/2016

Great location, great service, great value. It's not an upscale hotel, but all was very clean. Comfortable bed. Clean tile floors. Bathroom was quite small and hot. A/C has digital thermostat, but its a wall unit. So the bathroom gets really hot. Staff is really friendly and accommodating. Location is awesome, walking distance to everything in downtown Dunedin. And the view is either the ocean / bay or the marina. No breakfast onsite, it's offered next door at Bon appetit. And we were disappointed there is no free coffee in the morning. You can purchase a kurig cup for $1.00. Overall I would definitely recommend though.

11/08/2016

We stayed in the King size Whirlpool (Jacuzzi) room. it was next to a maintenance closet and ice machine so at times there was a bit of noise, however it wasn't bothersome enough or frequent enough to complain about. My two complaints were that when I called to have a broken light fixed, no one ever showed up to fix it. I used a lamp from elsewhere in the room and figured when they cleaned the room they would see the lamp sitting there and fix the problem but they didn't. The other complaint was that after spending as much as we did 400$ for two nights we still had to pay for breakfast. Most hotels offer free breakfast. It was slightly overpriced for that room given breakfast wasn't free but the room was nice and clean, everything else was enjoyable. I would stay there again but maybe try to reserve in advance to save some money. The whirlpool was great, plenty of space in the room, the view wasn't the best but I wasn't there for the view anyway. Overall I would give it an 8 out of 10. No major issues that I needed to complain about.

"Nothing special"

2
08/08/2016

Booked this hotel online as part of our honeymoon trip and well we were left a bit disappointed. Firstly we had paid slightly more to select a bay view only to be told that there is no such thing when we arrived and they do not know why the website says that- maybe this issue should be addressed to stop giving guests the wrong impression and charging them extra for something they can not have. Half the car park is over taken by the hotel next door at the weekend which is strange as you would think guests staying at the hotel would have priority. The room was quite dated and again the website had lead us to believe differently. Storm Colin hut on the second night of our stay and by the third night our hotel room floor was soaking with rain coming through the windows as the storm gathered strength. We didn't bother complaining as we were due to check out and the lady on reception hadn't been helpful so far or friendly for that matter, so just put some towels down to soak up. This hotel would be fine for a short one night stop over but that is about it.

"One of the better BW's"

4
02/08/2016

We stayed at this BW because of the close proximity to the Clearwater Marine Aquarium, our main purpose for this trip. The rooms were very clean with some modern updates and fixtures, the beds and pillows were very comfortable and the staff were friendly and eager to help. With luggage and other belongings for 2 adults and 2 children, we did find the room to be a bit cramped and there was nowhere but a small shelf above the toilet to put anything in the bathroom. Other than that and the fact there were no blackout shades on the windows, it was a good place to stay. The back door onto the common walkway was definitely a plus because it led to the most beautiful view. The pool was one of the best we've seen within the BW chain and was clean with restrooms located within the fenced in area. The grandchildren also enjoyed the hot tub which was located a bit away from the pool which afforded some privacy. We are BW platinum members and try to use this chain if at all possible. We did find this location to be a bit pricier than most, especially since they do not offer the free breakfast ans one of their amenities, but enjoyed staying away from the crowded Clearwater area. If we are in the this area again, we would certainly consider staying here if we could reserve one of the larger rooms. Not a bad stay and would definitely rcommend it!

BEST WESTERN PLUS Yacht Harbor Inn at 150 Marina Plaza in Dunedin was ideal lodging in lieu of the Clearwater Beach Holiday Inn, which have previously enjoyed but did not have the accommodations we sought for our 2015 summer vacation. The staff was quite pleasant and helpful. The attached Bon Appetit Restaurant was great. The location was excellent for all we wanted to do. And, the price was right.

"Over priced"

01/08/2016

This property was overpriced based on location. Having stayed in 8 Best Western properties in the past 3 months this property was near the bottom in the condition of the room. Yet the rate for this property was by a wide margin the most expensive. Also, due to the upper windows in the room not being covered with any drapes, curtains or even tinting, it was so bright in the room at night that I could read a newspaper. Not what I expect when trying to sleep. I had high hopes for this stay, but the property did not deliver. However the staff was very helpful.

The room smelled like a sewer. The dog in the next room barked all day, day after day. The tub did not drain well. There was no parking available in the parking lot due to the adjoining restaurant. Very noisy large condo being constructed next door. My granddaughter cut open her foot on a piece of metal coming out of the floor. The Hotel Manager should be fired!!!!!!!

"Great location, great hotel, parking is a problem"

18/07/2016

This is the best located hotel in Dunedin - easy walking distance to shops, restaurants, the trolley stop, a pier and a park. Rooms were cheerful and clean, service was excellent. We did not have a problem with the marina lights at night as some other reviewers have stated - the louvered shutters on the windows were sufficient for keeping the light out. The Bon Appetit restaurant was good - perhaps too good, because on the weekend the small parking lot is clogged with restaurant patrons. It's difficult to find a place to park if you return in the Saturday evening hours.

"Another great stay!"

I have stayed at this hotel many times when visiting my family in florida. It is always so pleasant from check in to the wonderful views from the rooms- staff- food-bar. I would recommend this hotel to anyone wanting a very nice experience in Dunedin. You can also walk into town from the hotel which is a plus.

The staff was awesome and informative. The room clean and spacious, with decor to lift your mood after a long drive! Bed comfy and room quiet. Wifi connection wicked fast too! No matter how you book your room, do not forget to follow up with a call, to ensure they have the specific pet rooms available.

Great decision to stay in the 2 bedroom suite. Great staff, and the food was fantastic. We'll be planning our next vacation next March here. The sunset was spectacular. The pool was very clean.

This hotel is older but has been remodeled tastefully. We had a double queen and the room was quite large with a desk,chair, an easy chair with a sink and frig in the room. We had a balcony which was nice. I have only one complaint of this hotel and that is the lights from outside reflect off the cathedral ceiling at night. For those of us who like darkness when we sleep that can be a problem. The hotel is very close of shops and restaurants and the children enjoyed the pool when we would return from Honeymoon Island or shopping. Christina, who work at the front desk is very helpful and knowledgeable of the area.

After reading some of the reviews, I was concerned. But, we loved our 4 day stay here! Staff were friendly and helpful. Our deluxe room was clean, roomy, and air conditioner cold! This is the perfect location for anyone bringing a boat, as the Dunedin Marina is right next door. Restaurants are walking distance and Dunedin is a laid back town. If you want to go to the beach, Honeymoon Island is the best. We will definitely be back.

We spent three night at the BW Yacht Harbor Inn. The property was extremely clean, our room was ample (222) and it was a very positive experience. We preferred the view on the flip side of the room - in the wide corridor where the door is located. We used a bench and the chairs from the balcony and sat outside with our beverages. We saw pelicans, jumping fish and dolphins. We never used the balcony.

"Perfect Wedding Destination"

28/06/2016

We visited the Best Western Yacht Harbor Inn, Dunedin for my sister's wedding. What a wonderful experience! We traveled with a large group, and Best Western was very accommodating. The guest rooms have a tropical flair, and are designed for long term stays - very comfortable, spacious and plenty of storage. Forget something? Don't fret, rooms are supplied with many complimentary items and the fridges are stocked with snacks and drinks for a fee. We had a beautiful room overlooking the bay. We were lucky enough to see dolphins and a manatee. Bring your binoculars-plenty of wildlife and birds to view. The two-bedroom bridal suite is the perfect gathering place for family and friends with a spacious living area, kitchenette, and two bathrooms. There are many on site amenities, but we only used a few. Bon Appetite served a delicious breakfast, and the pool was a great place to gather for games and to relax. One morning, we rented bikes on property, and got to ride the Pinellas Trails. The hotel is perfectly located, and an easy drive from Tampa Airport. There are so many things to do in Dunedin, most within walking distance. Plenty of restaurants, shops, and events. Beaches in the area are some of the most beautiful! Plan on returning!

19/06/2016

First off I've stayed at 5 star hotels that don't take out your room total till you arrive just in case you want to put on another card or dare to pay Cash...not here the morning of even before we arrived the whole amount was taken from my credit card..not only that they run your card again and put a 100.00 hold in case you buy a 2.00 candy bar or water!! Then when I arrived home I checked my account and the 100.00 is pending..I called the hotels front desk and was told it will take up to 5 days depending on my bank for the 100.00 to release! This is insane especially that the room was not even worth the 173.00 I paid ...The most I would pay is 120 and that's being nice ...the water pressure in the shower is pathetic..and there's pigeon feces all over the walkway and stairs!! Book at Casa del Sol that hotel was so much better..

"Great location"

16/06/2016

I would give this a 5 for value and cleanliness, however, there are a couple of issues that lower my rating to a 4. First, the soundproofing is inadequate. We could hear our neighbors and their children late into the night. Thank goodness our air conditioning unit was noisy to drown them out. Second, the pool looked lovely but since it is so hot here, we wanted to be in the shade to sit at it. Unfortunately there are no umbrellas or other shady places to sit there.

Stayed here with my wife for a week. Great location on the water and walking distance to downtown Dunedin. We had a deluxe King on the 2nd floor with a microwave, fridge and private balcony. Staff, housekeeping, bedding and room size were all very good. Hotel is clean but is just a little tired...older bathrooms, need to slam doors to close, older noisy AC units. If you want coffee in the morning I suggest walking to town...coffee at hotel restaurant was expensive and not good. Pool was refreshing and had ample space, chairs and umbrellas (you just need to ask for them), again just a little tired. I got a great weekly rate and would definitely stay again. It was also convenient having the Old Bay Cafe and Bon Appetite bars and restaurants close by and they also rent bikes right at the hotel.

The room was very clean but old. It's in a beautiful area therefore the prices ok but higher than I would regularly pay for an ok room. The beds were extremely comfortable. Our son was married at the Bon Appetit so convenience was terrific.

12/06/2016

Everything about this hotel was great, the welcoming staff, the absolutely clean room, the nice staff at the house keeping, the patio on both sides of the room (our room was on the ground floor), ... If we really have to complain: It would have been nice to have an in-room safe. There are safes in the reception area (in their office) but it would have been more convenient to have one in the room. The pool could be better maintained. It was very nice to have the possibility to choose if we wanted to sit on the front patio and do some people/car-watching or on the back side with water views. The hotel is situated just beside a yacht harbor (hence the name of the hotel). The surroundings are nice and you can take long walks. We highly recommend this hotel!

I'm glad that yet again I see how great the Best Western brand is. From one property to another thank you for letting me stay at your wonderful property! Hope to be back soon and enjoy it again

"Ruined last day of vacation... no manager on site"

Pay the extra and stay elsewhere! So many reasons. Steep concrete stairs to room, no elevator. Should ask if I (senior) want a first floor! No "Pluses" breakfast or otherwise. Very windy. Water pipe break, toilet tank overflowed and flooded bathroom... we turned toilet water off, no one available. Staff seem annoyed at everything at front desk, check in and out, changed credit card because original was compromised during our trip and was met with "Ugh"... Asked for refund for last night due to 6 hour water outage then waited additional 1.5 hours for warm water... ruined last days vacation. No manager on site, would never return message at check out, multiple phone calls or emails. All in all do not feel this was representative of a hotel that anyone would want to stay at and feel appreciated or safe.

Clean, updated roomy hotel , wonderful adjoining restaurant with an outside bar with a live musician. I believe this would be enjoyed most by adults. Hotel is located at a small marina just outside of Downtown Dunedin, with it's local shops and eateries. Just a few miles from Caledesi Island and Honeymoon Island,,,,a state park. Honeymoon is located at the tip of Dunedin causeway, with white sand beach and NO hotels,,very nice change. Enjoy Marina view from your balcony.

A very comfortable hotel extremely well situated on the Marina Plaza. My room was a two King on the second floor facing the marina. The whole property was well maintained, clean and the staff was committed to providing excellent service. The attached Bon Appetit restaurant was warm, welcoming and offered a diverse menu. The breakfast was very good too. I stayed there for five nights and was totally pleased with everything about the place. I would highly recommend it to friends and family, and I will definitely be staying there again.

Really clean rooms, staff very friendly. The sunset at the pier was beautiful. The parking was terrible. The onsite restaurant takes 80% of the parking, they do valet for you but that's not handy. The rooms have a-frame ceiling and the sun and security lights at night shine in. The room is never dark. The front desk do offer sleep mask if you ask.

Stayed here for my sister's birthday. It was a really cute room - tropical looking with shutters . Big room with a view of the room. It was very clean. Had a nice closet so we didn't have our stuff laying all over. Mini fridge had plenty of space. They gave us vouchers for the Bona petit restaurant breakfast next door. It was a limited menu but had a nice view of the water. The staff was very nice & let us look at a room before we booked. The only reason I don't give it 5 stars is because the rooms don't actually overlook the water. You can sit outside on a long conjoined balcony or you have your own balcony that overlooks the pool. Just the way this place was built many years ago. You can walk to downtown Dunedin which has lots of shops & restaurants. We would definitely stay here again.

Great staff, clean rooms, king bed was very comfortable, however the pillows were not. I expected the bed pillows to be of king size, to match the bed. They are very small and mine were a bit lumpy. They looked funny and out of place on the king bed. The AC worked great, room fridge comes with drinks and snacks for purchase,,, the staff will remove those items so you can put your own items in the fridge. Bring a room darkening sleep mask with you, the room is well lit up at night from outside lighting, no curtains,, window had slat blinds that light came through. Next time, we will get second floor room, the people above us walked all night and thumped and bumped . Bathroom is small, nice tub/shower and heat lamp for drying off. Good thick towels, which may not be important to some people , but it is to me. Nice views of water, marina and dock for viewing sunsets, you can fish there too. Easy walking to shops in downtown, hotel has heated pool, and you can rent bicycle surreys! Enjoyed our visit and will return!

"Great location on the water, breakfast coupons for purchase ($7.50), avoid rooms by the pool"

21/04/2016

Stayed three nights. When we checked in, we were assigned rooms on the East side of the hotel ("pool rooms"). But the pool access was across the parking lot, and these rooms have no view of the water. Price is the same as the water view rooms. Not good. We asked to be moved to water view and were moved, but not until we had been given rooms that were already booked. Very confusing. We were assigned a decent room on the second floor. We don't need a completely dark room. If you do, avoid the upper level since ambient light from the marina and parking lot does shine into the room from above. They have an arrangement with the Bon Appetit restaurant (at the west end of the marina/pier) for breakfast where you present the voucher (it costs $7.50) for a full breakfast. Excellent food. As an aside, we had dinner at the restaurant one night and the food was good.

14/04/2016

The hotel is in a great location at the marina and the rooms have private balconies which is lovely. It is an easy walk to downtown where there are some great restaurants and boutique shops. Unfortunately we were not impressed with the room itself. The door to the room was so swollen it was almost impossible to open and close without assistance. The toilet cistern was broken when we arrived and although a maintenance person was able to fix it eventually I cannot believe that the cleaners didn't actually notice there was a problem. We had 2 queen beds, however 1 of them had a number of broken springs and they were ridiculously loud - especially in the middle of the night - so if you rolled over in bed you were likely to wake the family! It was crazy! Finally the rooms were very small and cramped - especially the bathrooms. I have never given a review like this before so I spoke to reception first in an attempt to be fair with my comments but they honestly couldn't care less.

Located on the water with beautiful views. Room was a bit small for 2 queen beds but decorated nicely. Not very clean (my feet got dirty walking barefoot on the tile.) Good wifi and breakfast. Glad they had business center with computers and printers. Toilet was not working properly. Most frustrating, though, was the parking situation. When we returned each night there was no place to park as the valet parking for the restaurant took up all the spaces. They should have spaces designated for hotel guests. This was a trip with a large group - they stayed at another less expensive hotel with a group rate. We opted to pay a great deal more for the location, which it right on the water near the end of Main Street Dunedin. We will be back next year for the same event, I'm not sure the location and amenities were worth the cost (which was over triple the cost of the group rate at another hotel.)

Overpriced by far and not only snobbish to the height in its best costumed subtlety, but lacking in any civil courtesies! These comments do not apply to the associated restaurant. They were fantastic not only in the obvious customer-orientation of the staff but the quality of the site, cleanliness, food quality and taste as well as price. The hotel on the other hand, was the exact opposite. From the snobbish blonde receptionist at checkin to the AM checkout staff. No offers of any help or information on anything-even when questions were asked!. I would discourage anyone from booking at this site - unless you enjoy being treated as scum!

Our family made a last minute trip to Florida for spring break, and scheduled too late to find a hotel on the beach. I ended up booking two rooms, side by side, at this Best Western Plus - one for us and one for our teenage children. I was afraid my kids would be disappointed we were not on the beach, but they really enjoyed the hotel. They liked the pool and hot tub and even used the exercise room (complained a bit about it being too small). We made daily trips to nearby beaches, and really enjoyed Caledesi Island. We had some great meals at the restaurants in Dunedin, and were so glad we could just easily walk to them for dinner each night. We also used the breakfast vouchers at the restaurant on the property. Though it would have been faster and easier for our crew to just do a typical breakfast buffet, we did enjoy the sit-down breakfasts served to us each morning. The rooms themselves were really large and looked as though they had been recently updated. The bathrooms were beautiful and clean. The door to our room was from the outside (like a motel), and the room also had a door opening onto a balcony. We left both doors open most of the time to get a breeze going across the room, and it felt wonderful. (Don't know how well this would work in the summertime though).

Great hotel. Very unique rooms with each room having two entrances. One overlooking st Joseph's sound the other the Dunedin marina FANTASTIC.

We had a very nice time at this location, except for our final night there. The restaurant is exceptional, rooms spacious and clean (although a bit outdated), and the staff friendly. However, we had the misfortune of being surrounded by loud, late night partiers who kept the noise level obnoxious and loud for almost all the night. No apparent attempt by management to put an end to disturbances to other guests.

Upscale hotel that charges to much for small snack bags left in refrigerator is a bit tacky. Whats next, a 10 dollar mint on my pillow much to my surprise and dismay? Hotel adjacent to would class restaurant on the same property, but has no standing agreement to provide room service for meals. Aside from the above rather bazaar idiosyncrasies, This hotel approach's a class act place.

We have stayed several times at this location which is at the marina in Dunedin. Rooms are good-sized with either a patio or balcony and two doors--one on the patio/balcony side and one directly on the water. Staff here has also been very prompt in handling any problems, e.g., this year they fixed a bathroom sink problem very quickly. We always opt for the lodging plan including breakfast which consists of several entrees at the on-property Bon Apetit restaurant. They offer a pool and a complimentary newspaper each day.

Better than average BW property. Views terrific, spacious room and pretty modernized. A bit awkward if you want to make a coffee in your room and you have to walk 5 mins to buy milk? What's that all about? Reception needs to be a little friendlier, way to frosty for such a charming town. I would visit again and although a tad overpriced, it's a pretty good harbour side venue.

Stayed for one night - the hotel is fine - a little old but clean and functional. No real bells and whistles. Nice pool area. The only oddity (which cant be fixed at this point) is the hotel seems backwards to me - with big windows and balconies facing the parking lot - when the other direction has no windows but has some great views from the walkway - seems really odd it was built this way.

"Wonderful place to stay and for bird watching!"

21/03/2016

We really enjoyed our stay here. The rooms, pool and free breakfast at the Bon Appetit restaurant were wonderful. We also really liked having happy hour there as well as the many restaurants which are all in walking distance. The only drawback was our room was right next to the restaurant and seemed to have very early deliveries every morning with the backup alarms on the trucks waking us up. I would choose the building near the pool next time.

"Charming setting"

20/03/2016

If you like to sit on a lovely patio near the water and enjoy a libation of liquid or food type this is the place for you. The adjoinIng restaurant Bon Appetite restaurant and bar is one of the finest restaurants in Dunedin and your breakfast is included with room rate. A full breakfast if you wish not a continental that is usually the extent of complimentary breakfasts. The rooms are bright and clean and if on first floor you also have a lovely patio. Location excellent to town and stadium

The hotel is right on the water and all of the rooms have great views. The rooms are large with terrific views of the intercostal out the back door and Maria out the front windows, old style Inn with relatively clean rooms and little sitting verandas, and a big restaurant at the end over the water where we had our Sunday Brunch Banquet, what a fantastic job of that they did!!!... The hotel location is handy to both the quaint Dunedin downtown and the Marina. Lots of walking if toward the ends of the hotel rooms. 2 floors with an elevator but very small, out door windy corridors upstairs, hope for no rain.

We stayed for three nights in two different rooms. Our first room had views of the Marina from the balcony and the coast from the door. It had two big doubles, small fridge and microwave. We arrived exhausted and slept about 12 hours the first night. Breakfast was included at the fab Bon Appetite restaurant each morning. We also rented two peddle bikes for a half day. We were easy walking distance to the Florida Auto Exchange Stadium to buy Blue Jays tickets. We were minutes from the Pinellas Trail. We were minutes from the downtown. We fell in love with Dunedin's local businesses, restaurants, trails, seaside, marine birds and the general pace. It was not tacky touristy at all. We arrived in March which is peak season. We paid quite a lot for a fairly standard room, but that would have been the case at any hotel here. At least we had the location and services to more or less justify the costs. With breakfast another included perk was a parking pass. We hardly moved the vehicle at all. We really enjoyed our stay. We found the staff to be helpful, dedicated and hard-working people. The rooms had tile floors, which made the room feel very clean compare to carpet or even hardwood hotel rooms. The only negative thing I could mention was the back of our raised sink in the first room. I found a few forgotten shards of mushroom and plastic from a previous guest. Otherwise, pretty darn close to a perfect stay. For the best view, I recommend a second floor room, numbers 210 to about 224.

Central location for visiting all Tampa & Clearwater attractions. Beautiful water views from hotel and lots of local wildlife sightings including dolphins, osprey, cormorants, pelicans, egrets and herons. Town of Dunedin in walking distance and had good restaurants and nightlife especially "The Living Room". Be sure to spend a day in Tarpon Springs & visit cathedral & take short boat ride with sponge diver & eat at Dimitri's.

"Relaxing Stay in Dunedin "

06/03/2016

My husband and I stayed for 3 days in late February and found Dunedin to be a very relaxing and friendly little town. We stayed in room 214 which had a nice view of the water. The hotel is older but well maintained and up to date for the most part. Linens were clean and newish and there was a small fridge stocked with snacks. The room had a balcony with a small table and 2 chairs -- the lock on that door didn't work so well and there was no chain or deadbolt on it. Also there was no safe, deadbolt for the entry door, or lock for the bathroom window which opened to the outdoors with no screen. It seemed a bit unsafe at first but the area is so quaint the owners must feel the precautions are unnecessary. The price was OK for the accommodations but don't expect luxury. Clean, updated and friendly though. We walked down to the dock and enjoyed the view and the birds and spent some time in town where everyone was very friendly but the stores all close by 6 pm -- even during the "busy season". Even most of the restaurants close by 9 or so. Not much to do in the evening so that's something to keep in mind when planning your stay. All in all it was a pleasant stay and relaxing for mature people. Younger adults and children may get a bit bored as there is no real entertainment or night life that we found.

My husband and I visited March 1. Check in was perfect, they had our key and information printed out 1/2 hour before check in. The room was large and lovely. Our room had a balcony. The location is an EASY walk to the quaint shops on Main Street Dunedin. Also, the local drivers were polite and patient...they actually stop when you are waiting to cross in the walkways. I gave our hotel 4 out of 5 stars because the breakfast voucher was confusing...we ate breakfast and could have saved a bunch by buying the voucher at the front desk before going to the restaurant. We also turned in our room billing form to the front desk concerning the items we took from the room fridge...we were billed twice because I guess housekeeping also turned in that same information.

Fun, quaint location in the heart of Downtown Dunedin, with lots of shops, restaurants within walking distance. Not the place to stay if you want to be right on the Beach; hence the name "Yacht Harbor Inn." Bike Trail and rentals; very busy. Rooms are nice but windows don't face the harbor. Whirlpool suite is very large, bright and airy. Nice bathrooms.

Bed - comfortable with nice linens, extra pillows and blankets. Room - clean, large, vaulted ceilings, cold tile floors, lousy doors that you have to slam to close, bathroom heat lamp that would not stay on due to faulty switch Location - walking distance to restaurants and shopping. Odd parking due to building being constructed next door. Overall it is not our usual choice of accommodations but for a fun family in law weekend it fit the bill.

23/01/2016

We spent one night at this hotel. We were not too impressed with the front desk service and at first we almost left. The first room they gave us was on the bottom floor, pretty much right on the parking lot. Very small and not family friendly. We changed the room to one on the second floor which was bigger and had a balcony, however it was very noisy and it was very hard to sleep, as the room had a huge window next to the ceiling with no shades on (the lights from the parking lot pretty much make the entire room really bright at night). There are some good options for food around the hotel and the hotel has an outside bar as well as a pretty good restaurant with a nice view of the bay. Dunedin is also a cute little town with a beautiful side walk along the bay.

From the first step into our room...all we could say was WOW!!! Beautiful, relaxing, just breathtaking. The preview pics they have on their site is exactly what the area looks like. We enjoyed siting on our balcony watching the large variety of birds, the yachts and boats coming in/out of the harbor. Took a stroll down to the fishing dock to have an upclose look at the variety of birds and the boats. The Bon Appetit Waterfront Restaurant next door has delicious food, and large variety of drinks with live band.

Built in the 60's the building definitely has the older style hotel look & layout. Two floors of rooms with views of the marina or bay. Our room on the second floor had a poor view of the marina. The walkway to our door had nice views of the bay. The room was spacious, clean & renovated. The mini bar with microwave & refrigerator were nice features. The room had large windows with lots of light but at night was difficult to sleep due to the A frame style roof with open glass above the shutter covered windows. The bathroom was decent size with one sink & a shower tub combination. Free wifi & breakfast was included. The breakfast was served at the restaurant on site & offered a limited menu of a few options. The service was friendly but unfortunately not always the most accurate with our orders. Bike rentals on premises for $10 hour which was a fun way to enjoy the city. Free parking. Walking distance to main street shops & restaurants. Friendly & helpful hotel staff.

If they just had monthly rates, I would stay for a month or 2. Loved being right on the intercoastal waterway and also really enjoyed Bon Appetit for happy hour (note that it ends at 5 which is odd for happy hour time) but great atmosphere and food I have no complaints - just wish I could've stayed longer I will definitely be back!!

We loved the location on the water. One of the reasons I choose hotels is that they have a pool that I can use. Everything was great until I found out that they had not yet heated the pool making it unusable. Why in the middle of december is the pool not heated. What a big disappointment. Breakfast was great even though it was not complimentary as it is in other best westerns i have been in. Walking distance to downtown was a great advantage. Sorry wont stay here again because of lack of pool. might as well empty it.

This hotel is a great place to spend a 3 day weekend - the little town is a 5 min walk away and the beaches of Honeymoon Island State Park are a close car drive away. Hotel room was very big and very clean and quiet/private - restaurant over the water was pleasant and breakfasts were tasty. Construction of a condo is happening right now near the entrance so this may be disruptive but if you are looking for a private getaway, a place to take the dog and explore a small Florida town that time forgot, this is your place. Nice home base to explore this whole Gulf area.

The location of this hotel was perfect. You can walk to the downtown area to many restaurants and shops. There is a running trail nearby. Situated right on the marina, it offers great views of the water, which i appreciate. Our breakfast came with our room and it was perfect The restaurant is that you eat breakfast at is a well known restaurant within the town and serves great food with a wonderful view of the water. I was visiting because my dad was in the hospital there, and this was a very relaxing place to be.

"Who Let The Dogs Out??"

4
07/12/2015

The room was very nice and clean with beautiful décor. We were there for a 3 night stay and the second night there was a dog barking and whining all evening long. The front desk attempted to reach the people from that room but they were there for a wedding at that location and they did not answer their cell or return the call from the message that was left. Front desk offered to move to another room for that night but we would have had to move back to original room on the third night as that room was booked. We choice not to move as it would have meant staying in a different room each night we were there which would have been a HUGE pain for our family. The front desk people were nice and tried to help us but.... We enjoyed the hotel except for this one evening with the darn barking dog. Not only did he bark, it sounded as if he was scratching at the dog to get out. VERY annoying!! It would be nicer if pet friendly rooms were kept in one area, away form non pet room. This may have been better. I will give careful consideration before staying in a hotel that allows pets from now on..

My dad was having his work holiday party at the restaurant at the hotel and invited my husband, daughter and I to come with so we got the 2 bedroom suite. It was very spacious and nice! There was a big master bedroom with a bathroom inside it with a garden tub. The bed was very comfortable and we slept great! There was a second bedroom and bathroom as well. There was a big living room area with a small kitchenette with a fridge, coffee maker, sink and a table to eat at. The room had a view of the water, but it was from across the parking lot so it wasn't the greatest view. The room had a really cool beachy vibe and was in a great location, within walking distance to all sorts of neat shops and bars. I would definitely stay again!

Stayed at the Yacht Harbor Inn for 8 days over Thanksgiving. Comfortable rooms. Friendly staff. Great location for walking to restaurants and downtown Dunedin. Convenient for driving to shops and beaches. Safe area for walking around. We were sorry to miss the lighted boat parade, but some of the boats had started to decorate before we left, and they were very pretty.

We like this this Best Western in Dunedin. It is nicely located with a view of water from all rooms, a yacht harbor with pier to enjoy a morning stroll and it is within a block of the quaint downtown area of Dunedin with it's many shops and restaurants. It also has a lovely waterfront restaurant attached to it. We always stay here when visiting family in the area.

Fun trip to South Florida for MLB spring training. Great time of Year to relax and take in a handful of teams and games around the Dunedin area. I suggest booking lodging early as the Town fills up quick. Nice shopping and plenty of gift shops to browse.

I am a platinum rewards member and have stayed here before. I made a reservation about a week ahead of time and specifically asked for a room on the bottom floor as close to the restaurant as possible. I also added an extra night's stay at the cost of close to $150.00. I drove for 6 hours to get to the motel and was told the room would be ready at 3 pm... it wasn't and the desk personal did not seem to care. When I got my room they put me in the room that was the farthest from the restaurant and refused to move me to the area where I had requested to be . I have serious back problems and recovering from hip replacement. This morning at 7:00 the construction crews working about 100 feet from my room woke me up with the usual noise from a construction site. I am sure this will go on all freeking day !! This trip is ruined and I probably have $300.00 or more wasted on this motel..... I will not be back as these folks do not even attempt to accommodate their guests. Keep in mind I am a platinum rewards member which should get preferential treatment.........what a bunch of jerks

Nice place, very good location. Web site doesn't show the layout of the hotel well. Not really any views from rooms, but nice view from the property. Good breakfast if you buy the package. Front desk staff needs a little work. The manager Adam is great , but Sylvia needs some help . She seemed very stressed. Rooms are really great and clean.

"A wonderful surprise"

18/11/2015

Our room, on the second floor had yacht side views from inside the cabanna-like decor. Our door opened up to the bay side, so views were wonderful all around. A very comfortable hotel. Dunedin is a charming little town that obviously benefits from careful planning. The Panellas Bike Trail runs right through the middle and wonderful bike rides can be enjoyed, either north to Tarpon Springs (11 miles) or south to Clearwater. Breakfast was available for a fee ($7.50) but well worth it as it is served in the beautiful Bon Apetite Restaurant.

If you are staying in Dunedin, FL then this is the perfect hotel. It is within 2 blocks of this lovely town, an easy walk to all of the high points in it. The hotel has been updated and is clean, bright & cheerful with great views of the Intercoastal Waterway & the town's Marina. The adjacent (but separately owned) restaurant serves a good breakfast (best Eggs Benedict I've ever had) lunch & dinner with fabulous views of the water.

"I Would Not Recommend This Hotel"

1
15/11/2015

We just had a pretty bad experience with this hotel. The website and our confirmation clearly says the rooms have patios or balconies. Our room had neither, nor did it have a view, except for a brick wall. They were no help at the hotel, either, claiming to be completely booked for the entire week we were there. Their website also did not mention the large condo building currently under construction directly next door to the hotel. The aerial photo you see is misleading, the rooms look like they all face the water, but they do not. There is a walkway on that side and you can see the water when you go in and out of your room, but you also get an overpowering sewer stench with it. And, once you close your door, no more view. When you get there, the lobby smells like Fabuloso was poured all over the floor & I have a feeling that is to mask the sewer stench coming off the water. The other side of the hotel, your view is of a parking lot, actually two parking lots, the hotel's and the marina's. You can see sailboat masts sticking up over the parking lot, but not a view of the marina. I'm not sure where your room would have to be to have any kind of view of the water. Maybe all the way at the end by the restaurant you could see it. I did hear other people inquire if they could have a room that had a view of something. The restaurant at the end does have nice water views. I will give them that. The pool would be a nice pool in any other location. Even if there wasn't condo building construction going on right next to it, with banging and sawing and all of that, it would not be a peaceful location. There are trucks backing in and out of the marina and restaurant parking lot all day, ice cream trucks playing their music, car alarms going off, the hotel power washing something in the parking lot, maids wheeling laundry out to this shed where they do their laundry (in the pool area), horns, sirens, you name it. It is loud all day long. In addition to our room having no balcony and no view, we were right next to the maids' storage closet that they work out of all day long. So, starting at about 7:30 in the morning every day, if the construction banging and sawing didn't wake us up, the maids talking outside our door and banging around in their room did. We had a maid cart of some sort permanently parked outside of our door. And, the average time they'd make up our room would be about 2pm. They do have a nice location near town & their WiFi did work well, but it was not a comfortable stay and I would not recommend this hotel. They shouldn't advertise balconies and then give you a room without one and they should put notice that there will be loud construction noise from 7:30 am until 3pm every day.

This is our west coast hideaway and you just park and get ready to enjoy the water or downtown. Great views and shopping, dining or charter a boat right next to your room . Spacious rooms with a retro feel of yesteryear. Solid value and bet

"Wheelchair accessible room is a major disappointment."

05/11/2015

The one wheelchair accessible room has a bathroom that is ridiculous. I felt like I had gone back in time many, many years. The toilet is hard to access because it is in between two walls that does not allow much maneuvering. An AB person had to sit at an angle on the toilet due to the walls and the bar that stuck out of the wall. The shower bench that is provided is very small. The center of gravity must be low which is not likely for most adults. Great location but very disappointed since this is a chain. Staff had nothing but excuses.

Floor was dirty, had to clean ourselves, Was oily substance all over granite and tile surfaces, If you opened back door, there was awful odor from dead crabs and black muck at water edge, (counted 3 dead horseshoe crabs), black bugs flying everywhere, several got in room. Dead bug on ceiling over bed, heated pool was cold. Was overcharged for pets & told overcharge would be sent back to us in about a week. Was delayed departure while they inspected room. 3 star rating too high for this hotel

This hotel is bright and cheerful, and the staff extremely courteous and efficient. It is located on Dunedin's waterfront, with a restaurant adjacent that serves wonderful breakfasts, with complimentary breakfast for hotel guests. The restaurant also has excellent cuisine for lunch and dinner and one can dine outdoors on the waterfront, including a great view of the sunset. The swimming pool is larger than average hotel pools--it is outdoors. Location is ideal.

Loved that the hotel was within walking distance to all shops. Love all the eclectic shops and "watering holes"! We even brought our bikes up and hopped on the Pinellas Trail. Great place for the sunset, too. Loved the whirlpool bath in room after long day of walking and biking. Ok, now the downside...a/c was right next to the bed. Froze. Slats on the window shutters do not stay closed. We had to prop pillows against them to keep them closed. Didn't have a view from room windows. Had to go out door to see view. Really enjoyed our stay. Housekeeping always cheerful and friendly.

This hotel has a great location within walking distance to everything in downtown Dunedin, while still being off the main drag and with scenic views of the water. The rooms were nicely appointed, love that they had tile instead of carpet! It makes the room feel so much cleaner. I was surprised by how much attention was paid to the hotel bathroom, the tile work, sink, and other fixtures were quite nice. It was strange that there were no windows or balconies to the prettiest side of the motel, but there was an access door from our room to the walkway. There were a few minor issues, but all in all it was a great stay. I would definitely stay here again next time we were in Dunedin.

"Great location, too noisy"

3
10/10/2015

I usually start my reviews with the positives, but this motel's negative is a big one: noise. Don't stay here if you were planning on resting, relaxing, or sleeping. The motel is right next to an outdoor bar that blasts Caribbean music until closing time. That's not this motel's fault, but the ownership here could do a lot more to help their guests have a restful time. The doors and doorjambs are so warped that all of the noise gets into the room, like the bar is right next to your bed. I've never stayed in a place with worse soundproofing. The rooms here also connect, and the doors between the rooms are even thinner and more warped than the doors outside. If your neighbor is watching TV at a reasonable level, it sounds like he broke into your room and turned your TV on. It's a shame, because this motel's location is perfect. It's steps to quaint downtown Dunedin, and each room has a view of the Intercoastal Waterway and the Gulf of Mexico, with a shaded seating area on the water. The rooms were also recently renovated at what looks like considerable expense, but the workmanship is pretty shoddy. Whenever we turned on our shower, the faucet and shower head would wobble in and out of the wall like it was about to break, and the aforementioned doors are so warped it's hard to close them. In short, if you're looking for a clean motel with a great location and you weren't planning on getting much sleep, this is the place for you. If you like to relax, I wouldn't recommend it.

Excellent place to stay while attending a high school 45th reunion. Room and room service was excellent and the staff was pleasant. The restaurant is excellent and the service is good.

Right downtown and convenient. Restaurant was excellent and the town is picturesque. Only complaint was that there are no convenience stores anywhere within walking distance. Makes you feel the town's only objective is to force you into a restaurant, even if you only want something you could fix in your room.

A great hotel in charming Dunedin Florida. This hotel overlooks the small harbor and you can walk to the many restaurants and shops on Main St. It is a short drive North to Honeymoon Island Beach and Clearwater Beach is less than 15 minuets to the South. There are other quaint towns to visit nearby. Besides the great location the hotel is very clean , comfortable and has a friendly professional staff. We especially enjoyed the nice balcony.
