The room was basically and very comfortable, however, there were issues with the way things actually are versus the way they are advertised. Although the room was supposed to have a microwave, there was none and this wasn't fixed after talking with the front desk. There are laundry facilities advertised on site but the are actually located at a sister... More

This hotel was clean, mostly friendly staff, AC was amazing, and a free continental breakfast. I stayed on the 2nd floor pool/ocean view. I would highly recommend this floor. The pool was clean, room was clean. The Beach view inn is close to everything!! It is so convenient. I've been to clearwater many times staying at a family members condo,... More

Booked this hotel's sister property but ended up here due to an incident at our hotel. No questions ask at either property about moving or a refund and put into a nice suite which was a huge upgrade from the, 1 king bed, room we had at other hotel which was nice too. Beautiful view of the beach and rooms... More

My husband and I stayed there last night. It was a really wonderful experience and we'll definitely stay there again in the future. I read several reviews before going so I'd know what to expect. Some complaints were valid, like the hot elevator, small bathrooms, and stained carpet, but the "pros" far outweigh the "cons". We stayed in a large... More

The room with two doubles was very small. One of the beds was about 6 inches from the a/c unit and window. Had to keep the shades closed for privacy as window looked out to exterior corridor. It was awkward to get into bathroom and be able to close the door. The bathroom had a florescent light fixture like I... More

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
