“Great place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2013

Great Resort- in the winter monthes without the beach to entertain as much however, the location is not a walker- friendly environment. There are 2 overpriced noisy beach restaurants/ bars that are a short hike away, however not a lot of stores or places to walk to- A car is a must in this area!!

Room Tip: All rooms are nice . beautiful dock to observe wild life also. ( Birds occassioal dolphins)

We returned for our second holiday at 5 Palms. once again Suzanne could not have been more helpful. This year's condo was not as updated as last but it was very comfortable. We filled in the comments sheet & I know action will be taken (last summer one of the dining chairs broke and the owner replaced both the following Day!) Even being there over Labour Day weekend did not stop us getting a parking place on returning from a day out!
There are so many places to eat within walking distance and the beach is near but we also loved sitting on the dock ( new chairs there too)
We will return ... thanks again!

The upsides - This motel is about 2.5 blocks from the quiter north end of the beach and is on the intercoatal waterway. The boat dock over the water is about the biggest bonus. Otherwise, average place for about half of the money. The downsides - rooms are not the cleanest rooms I've seen, and the sofa in our unit should have been replaced 5 years ago. The drains in both the shower and bathroom sink were clogged. The management is never onsite, her cell phone is listed if you "need her". I fixed them myself rather than waiting. There are 16 parking places for 20 units, so be careful of moving your vehicle on weekends. My suggestions for owners are - a thorough monthly cleaning and get an onsite manager. BTW, we never found the "onsite laundry".

Suzanne K, Manager at Five Palms Condominium Resort, responded to this review, September 2, 2012
Dear Bshema,
Yes, it's true our rates are very reasonable compared to other Condo Motels. Thanks for noticing - no need to spend a ton of money at the Hyatt, when we offer so much more! We do get clogged drains from time to time, due to the amount of sand that is brought back from the Beach. We keep plungers in the units and have a Plumber on call. All our Condo's are individually owned, thus the decor, furnishings, appearance are all different. I will say that our Owners are constantly updating and improving. Perhaps the couch you mention is next in line to be replaced. The Manager is in the Office 5 days a week. Hours are posted, and a sign indicating return date. The Manager also answers calls, texts, emails late into the night when not in the office should there be an issue or an emergency occur. The phone # is posted on the office window and email is listed on the Five Palms website. There are 19 Condo's and 21 FREE parking spots, with 3 of these spots being long, which means an RV or boat & trailer can fit. You mentioned you saw only 16 spots and no laundry room, but perhaps you didn't look behind one of the buildings, where you would have found the additional parking spots and the onsite Laundry room that has 2 washers & 2 new dryers. Five Palms takes cleanliness seriously and apologize if something wasn't up to your standards. Although I don't know the particular issue you experienced, I will notify our Cleaning Professional who we've had on staff for 8 years in hopes that she will detail more. We give out "comment" sheets and appreciate feedback from our Guests and we will continue to try to improve Five Palms so that we can improve in our rating and have Guests return year-after-year! Thanks for bringing these issues to my attention. -Suzanne

Our group of 7 Phillies fans stayed here in March. We had 4 rooms. We were pretty happy that we found this place. Suzanne, the manager, was very helpful. She even provided us with beach towels and some chairs.
The view of the bay is beautiful. Five Palms is about a 5 to 7 minute walk to Frenchy's or the Palm Pavillion.
The Jolly Trolley stops right in front of the hotel that took us to the games and back.
The rooms were very nice and clean.
We would stay here again in a heartbeat!

We've been to Clearwater Beach 7 times over the years & this may be the best value we've ever experienced. This is one of the old hotels from the past that has been renovated and turned in to small condos. It was very clean and well kept with everything you need to stay a weekend or a month. Suzanne the manager could not have been better. She is full of energy and obviously takes pride in maintaining the property. This is not the Hilton but if you're traveling on a budget & don't like to waste money on the place you sleep & shower this is it. It would be a great place for a family reunion. Two blocks to the beach & you can walk to some great restaurants. We will Return!!

Room Tip: Ask for the rooms that have just been updated.

What a lovely quiet friendly little place right on the bay and great for fishing and only minutes from the beach and nightlife.
Stay in and cook your food on the gas BBQ's provided or seek out and try the many different restaurant and bars.
This place has something for all ages.

We had a great 3 day stay here. Very clean and owners very accommodating to my cars special needs. Nice and secluded form all the Spring Break crowd. Easy walk to beach and food. For the money it is very hard to beat. If you want to be pampered, go to the Hilton. If you want friendly Mom & Pop stay, go the the Five Palms. A++++++++++++++++
