When I was very little I grew up on Clearwater Beach, living a short distance from this hotel, then known (I think) as the Gulf View Apartments. I would have figured this long-time beach fixture would have been demolished long ago to build some other high-rise hotel or condo, but I'm happy to see it's still there. And it's delightful....

We stayed here for 2 nights as a break from or villa in the Orlando area. The rooms are spotlessly clean with great facilities. The staff are so helpful and friendly you feel really at home and safe. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and sitting by the pool. You really could not want a better location, everything is there you...

We are staying here presently here for one week. This is our first time here, and we made our choice primarily based upon the reviews we found here on Trip Advisor! One of the things we like about the place is that it is not one typical chain resort hotels one finds up and down the Florida coasts. No, this...

We've taken our annual vacation here for the past 3 yrs. Restaurant, employees & location remain 5🌟 but accommodations are getting beaten down & dirty which was a huge surprise. Probably skipping 2017 but will return 2018 (hitting Alaska this year.) Hope some refreshing happens between now and then.

Lovely location right next to the beach with restaurants close by. Rooms are clean and staff are very friendly. The free coffee before 10am was a hit too We didn't use the pool, why would you with the lovely warm sea just out the door.

The Palm Pavilion is in a great location, within walking distance of restaurants and bars (right across the parking lot from Frenchys Rockaway Grill) and basically right on the beach. The room was nice and clean with a great view. The bathroom was small with very little counter space. This is an older, smaller hotel so no elevator; however, it...

A great place to stay that's only steps from the beach. Wonderful staff, very helpful. We stayed in the least expensive room and it was perfect for my husband and me. We were on the first floor, so no elevator didn't affect us. Coffee at 7 am every morning in the lobby and daily newspaper at your door. Discount for...
