    Historical Traveler Reviews Palm Pavilion Inn Clearwater

    Very Clean Excellent location

    from

    My wife and I stayed at the Pavilion Inn from March 31 to April 4. We had a corner unit on the ground floor. It was very clean and literally 2 minutes from the beach. The staff was very hospitable. Excellent value considering that there are so few hotels left so close to the beach.

    Palm Pavillion Exellent

    from

    What a great vacation and we're going in April also. It was our 1st time. Our rooms were so clean. Great helpful staff. Wonderful Coffee every am. The pool was private, very clean and heated just right. ( so many hotels have cold dirty pools). We had a Gulf View room with a wet bar, room was large. The location of this lovely hotel is North Beach, a really clean and very safe section. They clean this beach every am, it is awesome. Next door is the Palm Pavillion Rst, food is awesome, fairly priced and excellent wait staff that are cheerful and friendly. They rent cabanas and umbrella w 2 seats, again reasonable, and there you have this awesom location that has you right on the gulf for your entire vacation. I have found most reviews to be helpful, I hope this is helpful to you.

    Great hotel and fantastic location

    from

    Just returned from a 4 night stay at the Palm Pavilion and loved it. The staff was always helpful...including when the heating unit in our room broke and they literally had a maintenance person there to replace it and within 1/2 of our initial call we had a new heater.

    The location couldn't have been better, only steps from the beach, Palm Pavilion Restaurant, Frenchy's and some of the town's shops and restaurants.

    Even though it isn't one of the new glitzy hotels we loved it for the people, location and the charm of one of the original beach hotels that take you back to the way it use to be before Holiday Inn and Hiltons took over.

    Gehen Sie nicht in dieses Hotel

    from

    Ich war mehrere Nächte in dem Hotel. Einige tage nach meiner Abreise wurden mir $ 25o in Rechnung gestellt, weil ich angeblich in dem Hotelzimmer geraucht habe.

    Meine Morgenzigarette habe ich vor dem Hotel geraucht, was auch die lobby gesehen hat.

    Apartment was great

    from

    We just got back from a two night stay in a one-bedroom apartment (two double beds in the bedroom)with kitchen facilities. It was roomy and clean, and minutes from the beach. It was like staying in a small beach house, which was preferable to us than staying in one of the large hotels on the beach.

    You can set up on the beach and leave everything in the room and walk back and forth if you need anything.

    Staff was friendly and helpful.

    We also had a regular room for one night, which I found to be a bit small and noisy (but clean) and so my above average rating is based on the one-bedroom apartment. We experienced no noise there at all.

    I'd book the apartment again.

    Great place to stay

    from

    My husband and I stayed here 1/26-30 2006, what a great treat. The inn is on the beach. (not any small hotels in clearwater that are still on the beach.) The staff was very friendly the room was very clean. we stayed in a 1 bedroom suite. the appliances were clean and in good working order. The pool is small,but, it was heated as advertised. There is a resturant next door affilated with the inn that was good. the resturant has a tiki bar with live music. you can't hear the music from the room at the hotel. I would recomend staying here.

    Just what we were looking for

    from

    My family of 4 stayed here over the Christmas holidays. The previous reviews are fairly accurate. The Palm Pavilion is an older (1960's?), simple property with small, but well-maintained rooms. The location is great, close to a variety of Clearwater beach restaurants and shops. We had a third floor ocean view room and the beach was just footsteps from the lobby entrance and parking lot. Cabana rentals are available for $15/day. The staff was super friendly, especially Ken the night clerk. The restaurant right on the beach had great food and drinks at fairly reasonable prices. It did a great business on its own. Clearwater Beach is in transition, with skyscraper luxury developments going up everywhere. I suspect the owners of the Palm Pavilion could turn a huge profit by selling their prime beachfront property to a developer, but they have not. Do yourself a favor and stay here while you still can.

    Great little hotel on Clearwater Beach

    from

    The Palm Pavilion Inn is a great place for a beach vacation. We stayed there with our three teenage daughters in the room next door. For teens old enough to go out on their own, Clearwater was a great choice, as they could walk down to Pier 60 and go out for pizza, shopping, etc., by themselves easily. The Inn was great - not fancy certainly, but clean and nice staff (except woman who works the morning shift - definitely not a "morning person"). Two caveats: if you have a room that faces the beachside, and the Palm Pavilion restaurant (the restaurant next door that is right on the beach), you will hear it when they have live music. For the Saturday night we were there, I believe the music was over by 11:30 or so - so it didn't bother me. But if you go to bed early, and are a light sleeper, it might bother you.

    But, if you are looking for a hotel right on the beach, where you can walk out with your chair, this is the place to stay for a reasonable rate.

    Simple, but pleasant!

    from

    I would recommend the Palm Pavilion Inn if you are looking for simple accomodations in an area that is slightly north of the main beach traffic. The hotel is one of the original buildings on the beach, dating back to around 1926. The rooms are on the small side, but clean, and cheerfully decorated with fresh paint, bedding, etc. The bath had a large tiled shower, but no tub. Our room faced the gulf and had a nice view of the setting sun. Pool is adequate in size, there are plenty of chaises around it and the water was warm and clean. There is parking in a lot owned by the hotel which is very convenient and saves you lots of money as all other parking on the key is metered and expensive! There is a pavilion bar/restaurant adjacent (and right on the beach) where you can dine and/or drink on the deck or indoors, listen to live music and watch the sun sink into the ocean. Food was on a par with other beachy restaurants in the area and reasonably priced. The trolley stops right in front of the hotel if you don't want to move your car. We enjoyed the location. It was nice being out of the congestion as Clearwater Beach is very commercial and can get very busy. I would definitely stay at Palm Pavillion Inn again.

    Nice Place

    from

    We stayed at the Palm Pavillion Inn for 3 nights in March '05 with our 2 children. It is right on the beach and within walking distance of restaurants. We stayed in one of the apartments with full kitchen, seperate bedroom and pullout couch in living room. The room was newly updated and clean. Our room was also right next to the pool. The pool was good sized and very warm. I would stay here again.

We did a short boat tour and got the history of sponge diving and experienced how they are harvested.

    This would be our last day in Hong Kong. We both had a very good night's sleep. Waking up, I enjoyed watching the traffic on the harbor. It is amazing how many different types of barges, boats, junks, ferries, cruise ships, and vessels use this harbor. Watching the traffic on the water was entertainment of its own.
    Unfortunately, this day looked to be as foggy and misty as yesterday. Even though I could see some of the high rise buildings on ...
