My daughter and I just returned from a stay here this past weekend and overall loved this place. Its in a great location with the Pavilion Grill and Frenchies all right there for your drinking and eating pleasures. Our room had a King sized bed with a Gulf view. Its more like a view of the Pavilion Grill which is directly in front of the hotel but you could still see the beach on each side of the bar/grill. Next time I wouldn't really care if a gulf view room was available or not. Since it was just myself and my adult daughter, the room size wasn't a problem. The staff was very friendly and helpful. My biggest complaint about the hotel and this is a big one in my book is the carpeting on the stairs and the hallways!! YUCKO!! Come on Palm Pavilion!! Get rid of that nasty carpeting!! If they replaced the carpeting, I would give this a 5 star review. This is the only this keeping me from suggesting this place to family and friends. I know they wouldn't like it because of that. Me and my daughter just over looked it while we were there. The only other thing I could suggest is to put more hooks in the bathrooms and bedrooms. There really wasn't enough places to hang wet towels and bathing suits. We will come back. Can't beat the price and the location. Oh and if they have 1st floor available....I would definitely recommend it!! No Stairs!! lol!! Overall my daughter and I had a great time and loved our stay at the Palm Pavilion Inn!!
