Next to quieter stretch of the beach. Many unique restaurants and cafes within a short walk. Cruises and fishing boats within a 10 minute walk. Clean and nicely decorated. Their "quiet time" policy (after 10 pm) ensures a peaceful night. Reasonable rates for beach front. We will definitely be back!'

Small Inn on the beach with great bar and restaurant. It's location makes it worth the stay. Very Art Deco Onsite parking available which is a real plus since beach parking in the area is limited. Grab your towel and walk outside and your on beautiful Clearwater beach. Ahhh, paradise! Would definitely stay there again.

My family and I stayed at the Palm Pavilion Inn at the beginning of May to celebrate my birthday. Debbie was fantastic answering my questions and helping me make our group's reservations. She even gave me a room upgrade since I was the "birthday girl"! Our family had the rooms on the first floor and it was perfect. The hotel... More

Just returned from 4 nights at the Palm Pavilion where we had a wonderful time, as usual. Perfect location for fun in the sun. Beach and two restaurants right there. Employees were all friendly and helpful. We'll definitely be back.

This hotel is an Art-Deco Style hotel built in 1926. It is a family owned hotel, where you are important to them, as a guest! The room decor was excellent. Freshly painted rooms, nice bed linens and curtains, and bedroom carpeting had been updated, as well as the furniture! There is no tub, (which I never would use anyway), but... More

Perfect beachfront location. A little concerned when seeing the condition of carpet on stairwell but put it aside as beachfront property issue. Room though appearing clean simply smelled of damp carpet as mold as soon as entering the room. Again tried to work with it turning up air conditioner and headed for beach...perfect location...but when we returned room still smelled... More

I am so sorry to hear you were unhappy with your room. We try very hard to keep the rooms clean and well maintained. In looking over the carpet cleaning log the room you stayed in (207) had not been recently cleaned so it should not have been wet. I truly wish you would have brought this to our attention... More

I'm a local CPA and have booked the Palm Pavilion for after April 15th escape several times, the last was last week. There is nothing better in the area for the price, you're steps away from the beach, convenience stores next door (refrigerators in room) and great beach bar is part of the property. Very accommodating staff, rooms are very... More

I have been staying at the Palm Pavillion almost every year for about 10 years and there are many many reasons I keep coming back. Number one is the location. It is right on an absolutely spectacular beach. So, every morning, noon and night you've got a front row seat to all the action - not to mention sunsets that... More
