“OUTSTANDING!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2013

Our stay at Palm Pavilion was second to none. We were satisfied with every aspect of this place. The hotel, although small, was quaint and cozy. We adored our room. The staff were friendly and courteous. The bar/grill was even better. The food was fantastic. The drinks were outstanding. The staff was accommodating and hospitable. The location on the beach was the best! Out of the hundreds of high-end resorts and hotels in the Clearwater area, I would go back to Palm Pavilion without a doubt. And in fact, I intend to.

Room Tip: Room 201 was THE BEST! Great view!

Yay!! So glad you loved your visit! And yes, both 201 and 301 are very popular rooms. They are a bit larger than our regular rooms and have a great beach view! See you on the return trip!

We stayed 7 nights at the Palm Pavilion this time. Once again as usual we were extremely pleased with our experience. This is our go to spot every time. Staff is awesome. Thx to James, Bill, Tori, Kerry, and all the rest. Housekeeping did a great job and no matter what we asked for, it was granted quickly.
Sorry we missed Debbie, (she was on vacation) but we love everything about this gem on the beach. People are crazy for not taking advantage of the price/location benefits of staying here. It's an older hotel that the owners continue to update. The beds are so comfortable and a recent update.
After your first stay you will be hooked, and then returning customers get a 20 percent discount. It's a win win! Headed back to Indiana, booo! But to all the staff, see you soon!

Booked a five night stay after walking past this place for years. The room was very nice, updated and clean. The PP is well maintained inside and out. The staff is excellent. The only downside to the room is the lack of outlets to plug in electronics, bathroom only, unless you want to move the furniture. This is an older building that has been completely renovated complete with expected quirks. Nice deck on the roof with an unobstructed view of the beach in both directions.

The location is ideal. The Palm Pavilion restaurant/bar is between it and the beach. Live music and decent food. Great atmosphere. Within walking distance to a number of food/drink places. We stayed during spring training and shuttles run to and from Brighthouse Field (Phillies). We will stay here again.

Room Tip: Ask for the beach view rooms. There is no elevator so be sure to ask for a first floor room if this...

I stayed at the PP for 6th time in 2 years over the July 4th weekend. It is my hotel of choice on Clearwater Beach for a lot of reasons. The staff always makes me feel very welcome, making reservations is a breeze. Rooms are always clean. Newspapers every day, bottomless hot coffee in the lobby. Debbie Welsh and her staff know how to treat their customers.

Decided to stay here at the last minute. Had a room available that would sleep four. Very pleasant staff. Extremely helpful. Off street parking right next to the Inn. No elevator so did the steps which was not bad. Coffe and newspaper int he morning. Plenty of extra towels,a nd towels for the beach. Charged the beach chairs right to the room. Palm Pavilion bar/eatery right next door!!! Town walking distance. The only thing noticably is the hallway carpeting was very worn. Other than that is was a great place.

Thanks for your review! Yes, those hallways are a bit dated. But, good news! We started the public area upgrades a couple of weeks ago and already have most of the first floor done. It came out really, really great! I think all our guests will enjoy the improvements.

This was our first stay at Palm Pavilion Inn. We stayed the 4th of July weekend and couldn't be happier with our experience there. The rate we paid was better then most hotels on the beach for a holiday weekend. The price quoted was the price we paid. No hidden fees, there were no room fees, no housekeeping fees, no parking fees for dedicated parking.
The staff was very friendly, the room was very clean and quiet. The rooftop view of the beach was awesome.
The hotel's location was within walking distance of everything on the beach, close to bars, restaurants shopping and local attractions. When we didn't feel like walking or driving, the jolley trolley and local bus system have stops right at the end of the street and the trolley runs every 30 minutes. Very convenient.
We don't know about room service or fitness center because they were not on our list of things to do. We weren't looking for those amenities and didn't care if they were available. Local restaurants do deliver to the hotel.
