I read the reviews, so I pretty much knew what to expect. I was a bit surprised however, with just how tired the furnishings were. The fake wood dresser and bedside tables were chipped and the finish peeling. The towel rack in the shower was broken/removed. The carpeting was badly stained and the curtains had tears. I rented a room... More

We have stayed at the Beachview quite a few times over the years. This last trip wasn't quite as pleasant, but not because of the hotel staff! Day 2 of our trip, the elevator would not open the doors on the 4th floor, which is where we were staying. I have claustrophobia and when that door would not open, I... More

We stayed here from 8/9 - 8/15 and we have NOTHING but praise for the Beachview Inn. Over decades of traveling, we have stayed at every type of accommodation imaginable, from the very best to the very worst. Believe us when we say we have seen some VERY shabby motels and hotels that tried to possum themselves as being MUCH... More

I stayed at the Beachview Inn on Clearwater Beach, Florida recently. THIS IS NOT a 5, 4 or 3 star hotel. This is maybe a 2 star hotel at best. If you are trying to save money there are cheaper places to stay that are just off the main road through Clearwater Beach. THIS IS NOT A HOTEL THAT SITS... More

I stayed at the hotel over the July 4Th holiday weekend and had no issues at all...and I'm not a employee which a recent reviewer said does all the reviews. I had a very nice stay and the location is perfect, can't get any better. We are already planning our next trip and will stay there again. It's not the... More

My girlfriend and I recently stayed at Beachview Inn and we couldn't have been happier. It definitely shows it's age but appears to be recently updated so it didn't feel it. The staff was wonderful and the check in/out process was quick and easy. Location is great and prices fair. We were right on the beach, close to some great... More

Loved the location! great price for the location. Went up for a friends 40th birthday. Had to go back for son's basketball tournament so we stayed again and were automatically offered a discount for a second stay. It was not a hotel that I wanted to hang out in, but I didn't book a place on Clearwater Beach to stay... More

By no stretch of the imagination did I think I was checking into the Fountain Bleu Hotel, so my expectations were mainly for the beach, nice restaurants, a sunset view and for the room to be clean enough to sleep and shower in. That's exactly what I got! If you are going to stay in the hotel most of the... More

You pay for location. This was a great location. Walk out the front door and across the road (minimal traffic) and you are on the sand and ready to jump in the Gulf of Mexico. The room was large but had a small bathroom. Hotel is older but still was nice. Breakfast that was included in price could have been... More

The employees (including the manager) are incredibly rude! Stayed here this past weekend because I had reserved through a third party booking based on the pictures and reviews, which are all completely deceiving, and I do believe they are planted and false!!! The room we were given was so dirty and run-down I was afraid to catch something the whole... More
