So glad we chose this Inn. Friendly staff and clean rooms. Nothing fancy, just the simple room you need. Great pool, not at all overcrowded. When we first arrived, we were instantly offered beach toys for our kids,so we didn't have to go buy them. They even gave us towels to use on the beach/at the pool. The restaurant was... More

Location, location, location. Right on the beach, friendly staff, renovated. On site parking and no added fees like many other locations. It's a simple place that fits the bill. I have stayed many times and referred many who have not been disappointed. Many eating options all within walking distance and shopping for the basics, souvenirs, or beach supplies.

I really enjoyed my stay here. The hotel is so close to the beach and beach bars that it was an ideal getaway for myself and my girlfriend. It's not a resort but the rooms were clean, new and generally enjoyable. The staff was pretty friendly. I would say here again without a doubt. It was close to the gulf,... More

My husband and I don't get much time to take vacations but this year we decided to venture out and go somewhere neither of us had ever been.

My fiance and I were very wary about staying here initially, the pictures of the outside made it seemed run down, but we will try anything once. Our expectations were meet and even surpassed. The entire hotel was renovated, everything was brand new and very fashionably decorated. I was only disappointed in myself for not booking a room sooner as... More

I grew up near Clearwater Beach and I wanted to stay at a small “mom & pop” hotel on the beach like when I was a kid...but this is not the place. The good is the location and access to the beach...and that is about it. The bad is this some type of corporate owned hotel and the staff knows... More

I booked this hotel for almost a week and upon arrival decided not to stay. We still had to pay for one night but it was worth changing hotels. We were told we had a room with a gulf view on the beach. The hotel is not on the beach, there is a parking lot in front of the hotel... More

Hi Vicki, First off I would like to say sorry that our hotel wasn't exactly what you expected upon arrival. We are always clear when it comes to describing the location and how our property is set up (even our description on Trip advisor says "25 steps away from the sand."). You we're booked in room #305 for 3 nights... More

We stayed here this past weekend. It was our first time staying on Clearwater beach, usually stay in St. Pete Beach. Palm Pavilion Inn was in the perfect location. Walking distance to everything, the beach, shops and Pier 60 for nighttime entertainment. The rooms were immaculate, beds comfy, reasonable rates for a beach hotel and staff very attentive.

If you want to walk to the beach, get something to eat, take a swim in the pool, you are in the right place. Discovered the observation deck on the 3rd floor and enjoyed watching the cars trying to find a parking place and enjoyed the sunset at the same time. Stairs only up to it. You can not see... More
