When it comes to choosing travel accommodations, I try to look at the big picture. In most cases, you aren't going to find a property that meets every single requirement. For Clearwater Beach, the Holiday Inn was the best choice overall for our family. We stayed in two hotels there during our stay, the other being the Hilton. When you... More

Such friendly people, great pool, good location. From the first day we got there switching from another hotel we felt very welcomed. Everyone at the front desk was terrific. The game room though a bit older offered a nice break during some of the rainy days. The pool area was awesome and the water very warm. Kids were able to... More

When my wife and I travel with our small kids, we always look for suites. We tried doing the single room thing...no fun! You have to basically go to sleep when they do, or stay quiet as to not wake them. Or, you can let them stay up all night which means that you are catering to them even longer... More

This hotel is a great choice for families for the following reasons: 1. Kids 12 and under eat free. We paid for two adult buffet breakfasts and our 12 yr old ate free. The buffet includes eggs, bacon, sausage, biscuits, french toast, pancakes, pasteries, fruit and cereal. The buffet is $9.25 per adult. If adults order lunch and dinner, kids... More

The hotel is nice but not fancy. I had a very relaxing and comfortable stay.The rooms are modern and clean. Every staff member I talked to was kind and friendly. It is just a short walk to the beach but it is a waterfront property. I loved viewing the gorgeous sunsets of Clearwater Beach from here. Nice pool with a... More

I will update this review once I hear back from upper management and corporate; however here is a brief overview of our stay.

My wife and I stayed here for 3 nights, having cashed in our Priority Club points. The check in was quick and efficient. We were upgraded to a two room suite, which was spacious and had a great view over the pool and Gulf. Its a fairly typical Holiday Inn... its got everything you need - not luxurious, but all... More

When planning our trip to Clearwater Beach could not resist our 5th visit to this great hotel. Thoroughly enjoy the gulf front suites and their amenities. Virtually every day were able to watch the dolphins frolicking in the channel and the pelicans feeding. Also, were treated to a Manatee passing by one morning.

Did a quick trip to a Phillies spring training game. The hotel is conviently situated on Gulf View Drive. The desk staff is friendly and courteous. $10 per day to park wasn't outrageous. Holiday Inn- Nice hotel, could use a little refreshing, but overall it's nice. Jimmy's Fish House is just off of the lobby. They serve a decent breakfast,... More
