“Simply The Best in Clearwater”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2012

Our stay was pleasant right from check in; staff was very personable and professional. The hotel was very clean, gulf view was beautiful, 1/2 block walk to the beach and many shops nearby. We needed to call maintenance regarding an issue we had with our TV and they were there within minutes to fix the problem. We’re Elite members at Marriott and felt we received much better service here then we have at any Marriott all over the world. Our children are not toddlers but as we were sitting in the lobby there were families talking to each other about how many things there are for their toddlers to do. This hotel is definitely for families or couples; we feel that rather you are bringing your children or going for a romantic getaway, that this hotel will suite either need. We enjoyed our stay so much that we will be heading back with some friends within the next month. I highly recommend this hotel if you would like to have a wonderful experience in Clearwater!

Wow! How nice of you to write such a wonderful review of our property - and you've just left us!

We're so pleased we met your expectations for room size, cleanliness and service. You are right that families find us ideal because we have so many activities going on to keep them busy - plus that pool!

How wonderful that you'll be coming back with friends in a month. Here's a tip - our hotel is one of the sponsors of a 6' fiberglass dolphin that will be part of an exhibition of 40+ dolphins at Pier 60 Park from August 6 - September 4. You'll be able to see how we've decorated "ours" and tell us how you like it!

Love to have you and your friends join us on our Facebook page to get updates and information. We have a great group who comment regularly and you'd be most welcome. Find us at: Holiday Inn Hotel & Suites - Clearwater Beach.

See you soon!

This was our 1st trip to Clearwater Beach, and after much searching online, I chose this resort. We were absolutely pleased to perfection! It had everything needed to make our trip wonderful. The food was excellant, we enjoyed breakfast out on the dock, overlooking the bay. Had lunch there too. Staff was very helpful and friendly. Rooms were spacious and clean! Pool was grand. Jet skies and parasail right on the spot. We walked around the village at night. We will most definitely be back! Great resort for couples, singles or families. My hubby and I loved our stay at the Holiday Inn Suites in Clearwater Beach Florida. Thanks, essee

Room Tip: We chose bay front!

Dear Pennsylvania friends:

What a wonderful review! Thank you so much for taking time to share your experience here at our resort. So glad we met your expectations for cleanliness, spaciousness, customer service and activities.

You're right - it's so fun sitting on the deck enjoying a meal from Jimmy's while enjoying the beautiful Gulf views. Happy you were able to take advantage of some of the water activities also!

We invite you to join our Facebook page, Holiday Inn Hotel & Suites - Clearwater Beach. We have a great group of regulars who participate with comments and photos and we'd welcome you to join in.

I researched many hotels in the area. This hotel lives up to expectations. The front desk staff are not very friendly or welcoming, but the rest of the staff was excellent. We had an ocean front suite and the views were incredible. The suites are actually two rooms that are connected but they result in a much larger area to eat and watch tv. There is a very short walk to the beach which was no big deal. Turn down service and towel animals left in our room daily. I would definitely stay again.

I loved this hotel. The rooms were clean and spacious. The service was great. The restaraunt gives you huge portions of food at a reasonable price. The atmosphere was relaxing with the live music and the boats passing by. I definitely want to return.

Room Tip: I don't think you could have a bad room here. The beds slept well and it was very clean.

Stayed here for a few nights with my adult daughter and grandchld. We used my priority rewards points and upgraded to a gulfview suite for $50.00 more per night. Had a lovely room with two queen beds and a nice room with a pull out sofa bed. Ample room, 2 bathrooms that were perfect. The restaurant is delicious and the staff is super nice. They have a eating area out by the water that the kids love. Pool is wonderful and it changes colors at nights. Kids love that too. The only thing that I did not like was the adults who made out in what was supposed to be a baby pool. Management is very good about making the rounds by the pool and telling adults they can't drink their cocktails in the pool, but they need to chase the adults out of the tiny baby pool. I mean, really, they do not need to be hanging out there. THey have a great tiki bar by the pool also. This hotel is just a 3 minute walk to the beach. Love it love it.

Stay was excellent right from the beginning.....Jean at the front desk was awesome! Very clean hotel, awesome gulf view, 1/2 block walk to the beach, clean pool, friendly wait staff, had no problem with any noise at any time. Food at Jimmys was good. Pay the 12 dollars to park.......and stay there, very hard to park anywhere in Clearwater, especially around sunset, everything is a short minute walk from the hotel anyway.
Would definitley stay there again.

Room Tip: get a gulf view room

We arrived to Clearwater Beach, FL after a long week running around at Disneyworld with the intention of just having some time to RELAX! We arrived to the room and were "Wowed" by how spacious it was! We had a family suite. The kids had an absolute BALL as they had their own little "room" complete with BUNK BEDS and a flat-screen tv! The room was VERY clean, the staff were all kind and eager to help, the pool was clean and well-kept, the beds comfortable, and there was a great little restaurant on site. Our first morning, we ordered room service for breakfast -zero complaints there, either. Though there isn't an actual "beach access" on the property, it is an easy walk to the public access. All in all, it was a fabulous place to stay. In fact, the only "complaint" (if you wanna call it that) we could find was that the showerhead in the main bathroom sprayed funny. *lol*

Room Tip: Be sure to specify if you want a room with a "full" ocean view. *lol* Ours had a view of...
