Located in the heart of the boardwalk and only a 5 minute walk from the pier, this find was perfect for a weekend getaway. We got a 2 queen bed suite (small little tiny kitchen, couch, table) on the second floor (same level as the pool) for $165/night. We requested a late checkout (12 pm - noon) and were allowed...

Well equiped kitchenette nice balcony beautiful view and just across the street from a great beach. Just down the street great beach bars with... More

Beachview Inn is very basic, but it's clean and in the perfect location! There is absolutely no need for a car when staying here either, everything is within walking distance. I would definitely stay here again!

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

This is a Great Hotel, price was right, very clean, employees were super! Within walking distance of Pier 60, Great store, Surf n Style for groceries and beverages, almost anything that you need! Close to good restaurants... and Of course the Gulf is steps away. Will stay again!!!!
