Having reviewed many opinions of the Beachview Inn in Clearwater Florida, we decided to give it a try. Location was important. Cleanliness was important. Parking was important. Price was important. Availability was important. All of the above came together just perfectly at the Beachview Inn. Upon arrival we were greeted by Debbie who was gracious and warm and made us... More

This hotel met our needs of wanting to be on the beach (right across the street). Room was fine but nothing elaborate. We were grateful to have a fridge, coffee maker n toaster. What was weird is that we had these items but the hotel would not let us bring the breakfast items from their continental room up to our... More

Believe it or not, we arrived the Thursday after Easter without a reservation and got a room due to a cancelation. We had no idea that Spring Break was still in full swing. We let them know we would like a third night if one became available and that worked for us also. They even cleaned the room we were... More

We stayed here March 30 &31. We overpaid for our rooms as they were booked at last minute. It was Easter and Spring break so rates were a premium everywhere and vacancies were almost impossible. We booked through Expedia and when we checked in we were informed of the parking fee. So what, the location you can't beat and just... More

if you want luxury hotel then this is not for you but if you want a clean small hotel with a perfect location then this is it! You can step right out the door, cross the sidewalk and street and be at the beach very quickly. Restaurants two doors down and a wonderful coffee shop and ice cream shop directly... More

Great hotel, super friendly staff, clean, accommodating, #1 location could not get a better spot on Clearwater beach right in the center of everything. We will be going again in the near future!!! You do have to pay $10 a day for parking but you usually have to pay to park near the beach anyway, internet is free in the... More

I booked a room at Beachview Inn on Hotwire for my wife and daughter who were vacationing in Florida. When they arrived at the hotel to check in the manager told them that they weren't going to honor the reservation because they were renting the rooms for much more than I had paid on Hotwire. Ryan at the front desk... More

Its a two star rating for me because IF I was fully informed of extra fees, was feeling broke, and found this motel for a very cheap price I MIGHT stay here again. I would do my best not to, but if I was desperate enough I might. #1 CON- The motel will blame anything unpleasant on "third party booking"... More
