We stayed in this hotel about 10 years ago. We decided to go back to it on our way home. We had done Cocoa Beach then Key West and this was our last hotel before heading home. Well we liked it 10 years ago and we like it just as much now. It is in a good place and while... More

We didn't pay extra for a room with a view so looking outside at the street was nothing special. The room was fine. Nothing out of the ordinary. The food at the restaurant was average, not spectacular. We spent a bunch of time at the pool. Pretty decent pool with a lot of chairs to lay out. We walked to... More

I took my kids to the Tampa area right before Christmas when the Packers played the Buccaneers. One of the 'host' hotels for the trip was not very kid-friendly, so I chose another on the same street. We were there for 5 days and 4 nights. The pros: Jimmy's restaurant and bar, great spot. Rooms clean although not spectacular. Views... More

The room are great, especially those with balconies facing the Gulf! Sunrises, sunsets, and the moon over the Gulf are images that will stay in your mind, and draw you back! The staff was exceptional, and always willing to go the extra mile. Well within walking distance to Pier 60, and lots of restaurants along the way. Lots to do... More

Stayed here in January for 4 days. We originally had a room out looking the parking and got upgraded to king suite out looking the gulf which was awesome. After being upgraded I would recommend paying for the view. No complaints. Great pool and tiki bar. Jimmy's restaurant is great. We didn't rent a car and got around walking just... More

We have stayed here many times and was never let down. We stayed here New Year's Eve 2014/2015 and was able to walk everywhere and never crank the vehicle up for three days.

We recently spent a weekend at this hotel while attending a beachside family wedding. We were so happy we chose the Holiday Inn insteaad of the hotel next door where the reception was held.

We have stayed at this Holiday Inn a number of times and have always enjoyed the stay. It is a walk to the beach and they do charge for parking (which I think most of the hotels in Clearwater beach do), but we love to look out at the water and usually see dolphins swim by at least once or... More

We stayed here in early December so the town was pretty quiet. We were in FL for a soccer tournament in Sarasota and decided to stay a couple extra days and go to Clearwater. We had a kids suite which had a TON of space. We had a partial view of the bay, which was nice. The restaurant was fun... More

I called ahead and asked if the hotel was on the beach and was told yes. The hotel is adjacent to the water but has no beach. So disappointing. You have to walk five blocks to a packed public beach. For the money they charged, I felt ripped off. Plus, the guy at the front desk was annoyed we booked... More
