Our last visit to Clearwater Beach was 29 years ago, we searched for a place on the internet to stay for about 4 days and did we find a GEM! The Palm Pavilion Inn was perfect, exactly what we needed, great staff, very clean rooms and located just within steps of the beautiful beach and yes did we mention very quiet!! We loved our stay here & hope to go again soon!! Highly recommend this to people who like to rest while on vacation . . . so relaxing here!!!

Wife and I stayed there Nov 30th - Dec 1st 2012. Very clean, great staff, good price, remodeled room is wonderful. Steps from the beach and many other restaurants and of course the Palm Pavilion restaurant which has great food and entertainment. We have been coming to Clearwater Beach for a number of years and (for whatever reason) had never stayed here. We will be back and will stay here again, would recommend it to anyone! Sorry, but the only negative was that there was no elevator so if you are up on the 2nd or 3rd floors you have to carry your luggage up the stairs.

We found this on Trip Advisor and I am really glad. We parked our car Thursday afternoon and didn't get in it to leave until Monday afternoon. Nice clean rooms! Friendly and very helpful staff. Right on the beach. The frond desk staff Rick and Tori are great. There is also a heated pool that our daughter enjoyed. The Palm Restaurant is right next door and the food there is excellent, too. You can walk every where. We lived on the beach. Our favorite though was the roof top for coffee in the morning and the sunset at night.

You found my favorite spot....the rooftop deck! You're right, it's perfect for coffee in the morning but it's also great for an evening sunset! Thanks for the business and come back soon!!

I have always liked this place but the remodeled room is beautiful. The beach is wonderful and the restaurant is right here. Unbelievable value. A week or a night. This place is worth it. Right on the beach.

Thank you! I'm glad you like what we've done so far in our remodel. The new room furniture arrives on February 4th and we're very excited! The next phase will be the public areas; halls, stairs and lobby. Come see the changes!!

This was our first time to Clearwater Beach and I spent a lot time researching the best spot for my wife and I. With the plethora of huge hotels in the area, I wondered if the smaller, older and much cheaper Palm Pavilion Inn could compare. I rolled the dice on this place…and hit the jackpot.

- Literally steps from the beach. Like 20 steps.
- 19 steps to a nice beach restaurant (Palm Pavilion Grill) with good food, subnet/beach views, live music and booze.
- The place was older but well-maintained. The housekeeping service made up our room very nicely each day.
- Everyone on the staff was friendly and helpful (Yo, Rick!).
- Rooftop deck for sunset views.
- Parking spot included with room (not the case with other huge hotels in the area).
- Discounts for AAA members and returning guests.

We would stay here again without question.

This was our first trip to Clearwater Beach, FL and we just wanted a quiet place to relax for a couple of days between two weddings. Palm Pavilion Inn was perfect!! The staff couldn't have been nicer (especially Rick at the front desk) and it was in a great location for everything. We had a recently upgraded King Bay Front room and it was beautiful! Very small, but perfectly appointed with all the right designs and decorations and the in-room safe was unbelievably large! The shower was gorgeous and the only thing we would recommend is possibly putting in a new shower head so that the spray is more direct. Ogtherwise, everything was great. We would definitely stay here again and why not, with their return guest discount??!!!! Another perk! Thanks to Rick and the staff for making our short get-away just what we wanted!

We love Clearwater, and had the pleasure of attending a wedding there this weekend.We picked the Palm Pavilion because it was close by. BOY! did we hit the jackpot. I called to make a reservation and reached the most Happy, & Helpful young Man (Rick V) .He handled all our accomidations. Upon arriving we were welcomed by a very nice lady ( sorry I didn't get her name) She drected us to our room, which was immaculate, and very comfortable .The staff was
very helpful in answering all our questions.We met family at the Palm Pavilion Beachside Grill & Bar which was great! Good food, Large list of cold cocktails and Great and speedy service, with
a smile. The Hotel & Grill are just a short walk to the beach. We really hit it LUCKY with this one.
The Palm Pavilion is on our list of return visits. Why would we stay any where else? This is a keeper.
