Welcome to our newly reimagined oasis in Clearwater Beach, Florida — America’s No. 1 Beach. Inspired by Winter the Dolphin, star of the famed Dolphin Tale movies, our hotel is both family-friendly and eco-friendly. Meet rescued marine animals through our alliance with Clearwater Marine Aquarium, home of Winter and her friends. Relax in nautical surroundings featuring a fun, ocean-inspired theme inside, while a stunning pool and pristine beach await you outdoors.

Bright and airy, our 91 rooms are a breath of fresh ocean air. Smooth-textured light woods and pops of deep blue and seafoam green bring the outdoors in, while marine-life artwork inspires a lively beach spirit. Many rooms have balconies for catching the evening breeze off Clearwater Beach. All rooms feature wi-fi, mini-fridge, microwave, and coffee maker.
