“A View to Nowhere”
Reviewed 9 August 2014

I stayed at the Beachview Inn on Clearwater Beach, Florida recently. THIS IS NOT a 5, 4 or 3 star hotel. This is maybe a 2 star hotel at best. If you are trying to save money there are cheaper places to stay that are just off the main road through Clearwater Beach. THIS IS NOT A HOTEL THAT SITS DIRECTLY ON THE BEACH. This is across the street from the beach. No view of the beach. This is a nice quiet hotel if you stay in the back. If you face the pool I do not think it is as quiet. There is no life guard for the pool and it seemed there was no hours enforced by the hotel. The hotel is bare bones for a hotel and very dated. But on the plus side everything is very clean. I had to tell the hotel repeatedly of things not working. Which were not fixed durring my visit. Staff was very friendly but do not get your hopes up for what they call a Continential Breakfast because it is very basic and not even Continential. It is close to Crabby's Resturant and McDonalds. Sits right on the major boardwalk. If you are looking for a Hyatt or Marriott quality hotel this is not it. If you are just looking for a place that is a place to lay your head at night that is some what cheap. This is it.

I stayed at the hotel over the July 4Th holiday weekend and had no issues at all...and I'm not a employee which a recent reviewer said does all the reviews. I had a very nice stay and the location is perfect, can't get any better. We are already planning our next trip and will stay there again. It's not the Hyatt or even the Hilton but it's sufficient. If your looking for fancy then this hotel is not for you.

My girlfriend and I recently stayed at Beachview Inn and we couldn't have been happier. It definitely shows it's age but appears to be recently updated so it didn't feel it. The staff was wonderful and the check in/out process was quick and easy. Location is great and prices fair. We were right on the beach, close to some great restaurants and bars. I would stay again if staying in CWB again.

Loved the location! great price for the location. Went up for a friends 40th birthday. Had to go back for son's basketball tournament so we stayed again and were automatically offered a discount for a second stay. It was not a hotel that I wanted to hang out in, but I didn't book a place on Clearwater Beach to stay in the hotel. Beds were comfortable and room was clean. When housekeeping cleaned the next day they did a great job. I would definitely stay here over and over because of the reasonable price, cleanliness and location, location, location!

By no stretch of the imagination did I think I was checking into the Fountain Bleu Hotel, so my expectations were mainly for the beach, nice restaurants, a sunset view and for the room to be clean enough to sleep and shower in. That's exactly what I got!
If you are going to stay in the hotel most of the time, this may not be the hotel for you, but if you just want to sleep and shower in the room and enjoy the city. This place will work.

You pay for location. This was a great location. Walk out the front door and across the road (minimal traffic) and you are on the sand and ready to jump in the Gulf of Mexico. The room was large but had a small bathroom. Hotel is older but still was nice. Breakfast that was included in price could have been better. If you are looking for more than donuts and toast, go next door to McD. Overall good deal. Looked out balcony and could watch the sunset over the water.

The employees (including the manager) are incredibly rude! Stayed here this past weekend because I had reserved through a third party booking based on the pictures and reviews, which are all completely deceiving, and I do believe they are planted and false!!! The room we were given was so dirty and run-down I was afraid to catch something the whole time. I have never been so uncomfortable in a hotel as I was here for many reason that really don't need to be spelled out. From the moment we arrived, until the moment we left, we were made to feel like the motel couldn't care less about our stay. Do not stay here!!

Room Tip: Stay somewhere else!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
