I like the small local hotels and this is one is excellent. Location cannot be beat (right on the beach) and the beach bar and grill has been a favorite of mine for 30 years, always good food and always good live entertainment . Rooms have been updated and are very modern, and clean. Hotel is quiet for the busy... More

First, I'm a seasoned traveler who actually works in the hotel/resort industry. Given the shows I do I also end up staying in a lot of 4+ star resort properties and am also a gold member of Fairmont's President's Club. This place definitely isn't a Fairmont or other 4+ star property. I'm just trying to illustrate that I tend to... More

We stayed at the Palm Pavilion last August for 3 nights when we got married on the beach and had an absolutely fantastic time.

I had two rooms on the third floor and my mothers hip started hurting her from the stairs, the front desk arranged for a room on a lower floor to help her out at no extra charge! I will stay only at the Palm Pavillion Inn when visiting Clearwater

Not a fancy hotel, but perfect location. Rooms were clean and beds very comfortable. Fridge in room. Small pool area, pool towels provided. The bar/restaurant of hotel has a great atmosphere. Went there on a Friday night and enjoyed live music and dancing. Free parking a bonus! Short walk to pier 60. Slightly quieter end of the beach.

We really enjoyed the atmosphere in this hotel. The hosts were very personal and helpful. full of good intentions to make your stay even better. The style of the Hotel is great. Not modern, but clean and very "Florida" Style. We loved it. And the location is great. Just at the beach. Including Parking.

Had a great five night stay at this hotel. Just steps from the sandy white beaches and a short walk to the pier, shops and restaurants. The hotel was clean and staff was friendly. My kids especially loved the pool and the pastries in the morning. Can't wait until next year to return again. Thanks for a great time!
