Beachview Hotel
Ranked #48 of 98 Hotels in Clearwater
Reviewed June 9, 2014

The view from pool deck looking towards the beach was great however some negatives, states newly renovated but rooms still felt dated, large pile of trash and old mini fridges tucked in the stairwell that led up to our room, had to pay for parking even as registered guest and wifi charges for access in room and very poor "Overly monitored" breakfast of finger foods and beverages that can't leave the designated area.

Stay here at least once a year when my daughter plays in a beach volleyball tournament. Rooms are always clean and comfortable. Staff is very friendly and try to accommodate everybody. Hotel is right across from the beach and a short walk from the Pier. Several restaurants are within easy walking distance, as are several beach stores. Bar next door can get a little noisy on the weekend, so stay in a room on the north end of the hotel if that worries you!

Room Tip: Rooms on the north end are quieter. Rooms on the south end are adjacent the pool and the restaurant...

After reading some of these reviews I was a bit skeptical about this hotel but found it to be a bit dated,Other then that the room was clean and housekeeping did a good job of keeping it cleaned each day.I had a gulf view deluxe room and the view was awesome.Some of the staff could have been more courteous and helpful but I found Melanie to both friendly and very helpful.I would definitely stay here again.Its not the Hyatt or the Hilton but its half the cost and its Clearwater Beach after all so get out of your room and have some fun.

just spend a couple of days at the beachview inn and what a good time was had. Didn't quite know what to expect with the reviews I had read but was pleasantly surprised. The rooms where a little dated but clean and comfortable. The view was to die for being able to sit on the balcony and watch the sun go down was bliss. Grabby's next door a little noisy on Saturday night so we joined in so as not to miss out and a good time was had there. Sunday was much quieter. Spent time on the beach which was across the road and a short stroll to pier 60 which was good fun too. All in all a good few days away from the hussle and bussle of orlando. Would go and stay again

Room Tip: choose a room overlooking the pool and watch the sunset go down whilst relaxing on the bed what a vi...

OK - if you want the Hilton or similar class hotel, book the Hilton or similar. But the Beachview is AWESOME! It's an older building but the location is amazing, the pool is tremendous, the staff warm and friendly. You're not going to Clearwater Beach to sit in your room, so get out and enjoy the beach. Save a little on the hotel and spend more on the fun!

The hotel is clean and comfortable. Housekeeping does a fantastic job, desk staff is very helpful and you simply cannot beat the location.

When I return to the area, I'll stay there again!

Room Tip: When you reserve, ask for a beach-facing or pool facing room.

We took a chance on this place after reading the reviews. It really was ok. Its a old basic hotel showing its age. The room seemed clean but the carpet was nasty. The bath had been updated and that was nice. The bed was soft and probably needed updating. We only stayed one night and that was enough. Great location. Front desk was slow to check in. This hotel was sold out pretty much when we got there. Cigarette butts littered the property and was in need of some TLC.
Great little bar next door called Crabbys with in walking distance. Breakfast was continintal and we were warned at check in not to try and sneak food out :/ and it was promptly over at 9am and yes someone was at the door checking people coming and going....
Charged 5.00 to park in their parking lot and added 10.00 per floor the higher up you went. We felt nickle and dimed. Would not stay here again. It was ok in a pinch. There are alot of either old hotels or new fancy hotels in this area, not much in the mid price range. This hotel is a old hotel with a higher price but not the quality. Just needs some updating and cleaning.

Only positive was the location. Room was old and very dated, holes in curtains, dirty walls, and had a problem with the bathroom sink draining. Had neighbors that were very loud and obnoxious, which is not their fault but it was handled very poorly. We called the desk (had to call twice) and they evidently told them that we had called as they started tapping on our door and window. They were asked to leave but were allowed back at 3 AM and were again loud and tapped on the door and window again. Needless to say, the staff has very poor customer service and consideration of their guests. Beware if you choose this hotel! Don't expect any resolution to any problems once they have your credit card.
