Much needed vacation was marred by room location. The staff and manager were nice, but unable to fix the problem which resulted in very little sleep for my family. I booked a gulf view room ( got a view of the fire station and a little bit of sand, no ocean view at all) and upon arrival was given room... More

Stayed in the 1 BR. Apartment with the family. Great location, close to everything especially the beach. Super clean. enjoyed every part of being there. The restaurant which I believe is by the same owner next door also great.

I stayed here with my 3 yo this past Forth of July weekend. We came in a day early so we stayed in a small, 1 bed room the first night. Room was clean and updated. Staff was very friendly and attempted to get our apartment cleaned and ready for check in early the next day, however the people that... More

My family of four and I spend two nights here over last spring break. Check in was easy. Plenty of parking at a very busy spot on the strip. Our two double bed ocean view room was on the second floor and it was very small. The sides of each bed touched the outer walls. The ocean view... well you... More

My family of three stayed here June 22-26. I had done my research and read all the great reviews. This is really a fantastic place. The location is perfect. I am so glad we decided to stay at the north end of the beach. The south end is a lot busier with tons of construction going on. This is honestly... More

You can not beat the location of this place! No, it's not directly on the beach. However, it's only about 20-25 steps from the front door to the beach. Which is majorly close compared to the hotels that you have to walk across 3-4 lanes of traffic and down a walkway to get to the beach. Parking is superb. It's... More

Awesome place to stay...very calm environment. Very clean and employees were very nice. Roof top was awesome to view beach, pool was nice and clean. Love to eat at the Palm Pavillion grill & bar...great food, right on Clearwater beach. I will do it again.

Good Morning Lynn, First off thank you for all of the positive ratings and feedback about our hotel. We are located on a quieter area of the beach and our hotel is smaller (some consider "no frills") with a check in age of 25 years or older so "calm" is our thing :) We are excited that you will be...

3rd time staying at Palm Pavilion and as always a perfect stay. You are steps from the beach, free parking, variety of food right around you, clean and friendly. Has everything you want or need during your stay. Love it here and will be back of course.

I have nothing but good things to say about this place. It is a throwback that reminds me of the motels we used to back up to in our 1960's & 1970's station wagons when I was a kid It's actually a hotel-not a motel-but if you stay in the studio apartments you do get to park right outside your...
