This inn has one and only one thing going for it -- it's proximity to the beach. Everything else is substandard. Our room was on the third floor. We came to discover (after checking in) that there is no elevator. You must walk up the stairs to the third floor. After climbing up to the third floor, we discovered that... More

This hotel is very close to the beach, and it is in a good neighborhood. Parking in Clearwater Beach is very difficult to find. You pretty much have to find a park and leave the car there for most of your stay. The hotel has a parking lot attendant on duty during the day and most of the evening. That... More

I usually only stay at resorts but my husbands friend raved about this place so we cancelled the reservation at the "resort" down the street and boy I was not disappointed! The front desk staff was great and handled questions via the phone prior to our visit. The room was ready, clean and cool! The mini fridge was good sized... More

Upon arrival check in was simple and fast. Front desk was friendly and helpful. The room was clean and ready upon arrival. Not the largest room or bathroom in the world, but I was there to be outside anyway so it didn't bother me. Supper close to the beach. We had a gulf view room which was true, but you... More

This 3 story semi-art deco motel/hotel is a very good baragin and a nice place to stay. The only draw back is that there is no eleivator and if you are on the third floor, the bags get heavy around the 2nd landing. The staff was very helpful and accomodating. There is a "quiiet" policy at 10 pm and the... More

We traveled to Clearwater Beach to attend some Phillies spring training games. We stayed at this hotel from 3/13/2015 until 3/19/2015. Our room was on the 2nd floor. All of the staff was helpful and friendly. Our room was cleaned everyday.

We stayed there for three nights Mar 5-8 2015. We picked it because of its location next to the beach. It was a little cool those three days so we never got to spend much time on the beach but still a great location as you can walk to many restaurants and shops on the strip next to the beach....

This older hotel at the north end of Clearwater beach is a gem. Rooms are updated, bathrooms too. Beds are very comfortable. The staff is over the top in meeting requests and providing service. Small clean pool area for relaxing. Clamshells and umbrellas for rent. Free coffee, ice and PARKNG just steps from the beach are big pluses for this... More

I stayed in Apt.107 mom, and two kids under 6. Property is older and no frills but did the job. Can't beat the location to food,beach and access to parking. Sofa bed for kids only not made for adults.

I really looked for the best place to stay for my birthday getaway before going with the Palm Pavilion. We were not disappointed. Rooms are not big...but you are not in them much anyway. The rooms are updated and clean so we could not ask for more. We did not have an ocean few but were okay with that. It... More
