Stayed in one of the apartments for four days. We loved it. Everything we needed was provided...full kitchen, great ceiling fans, toys for the beach! You name it, we had it or the staff got it for us! I love how this is a family owned hotel and not a huge chain. The location is fabulous...beach, shops, food are all... More

Our family just got back from a 4 day stay here and we loved it. We had a blast. The hotel is right on the beach and close to everything. We have 2 small kids (5&2). We will definitely be back, I would recommend to stay In the suites though if you have children for more room. The place was... More

This area is our favorite place in Clearwater Beach. The inn is located right behind the Palm Pavilion restaurant which overlooks the gulf and white beach. The beach has fine, white sand. Park by the inn when staying there and avoid the cost of parking to go to the beach. Several high rise condos have popped up in the area... More

We loved the location. Had second floor king room gulf view. A few things we really liked about the room: the windoe opened, the two curtain system, a ceiling fan, flat screen tv, plenty of pillows, hooks by the door, and towels for the pool, clean,clean, clean. A few things I thought could be improved:I had to go ask for... More

We have now stayed at the Palm Pavilion Inn on multiple occasions. Each time has been wonderful. It is probably the best location on Clearwater Beach. Far enough off the main strip to be away from "spring break-esq" rowdiness and close enough to walk to anything you might need. The staff is beyond friendly and helpful. The General Manager, Debbie,... More

Good Morning, We appreciate your kind review of our hotel here on Clearwater Beach! You really "hit the nail on the head" with your description of our location being close enough to enjoy everything the beach has to offer, but far enough to avoid the rowdiness that the southern end of the beach gets around Spring break. Being on the... More

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 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.
