“QUIRKY HOTEL”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2012

Stayed here for fourth time oct 2012.Suites are magnificent and good value for money if you are self catering they have everything you could wish for.There is a mini 18 hole golf course inside running through the ground floor,a couple of lovely swimming pools ,gym all towels provided.A lovely setting on riverside with boats moored alongside,many of the suites overlooking the moorings with tables and chairs outside room to sit and enjoy.Excellent restaurant with outside dining overlooking river plus c/w singer performing(Jimmy Iguanas restaurant) at one end.There used to be another more upmarket restaurant the other end also overlooking river it seems to have closed.All in all a great American expierience.Beach is only short walk.

Room Tip: riverside rooms have best views

Booked this hotel as near it was near to Clearwater beach, an area I always liked and was delighted with hotel. ( it,s in Indian Rocks Beach ) stayed in a Habourside suite great room, with lounge, kitchen, 2 double beds and bathroom and wash area outside the bathroom.

Great view from the room with a decking area to sit and enjoy the inland waterway. There is a marina in front of the rooms and while sitting on the deck we were able to enjoy seeing the pelican,s and we were lucky enough to see some dolphins as well.

The beach is just a short 5 minute walk. It is a fantastic beach miles of endless golden sand.
Very relaxed feel to the area.

Nice eating place in hotel Jimmy Guana,s good food reasonable prices. There is a big area of decking to sit and eat over looking the waterway. Couple of local bars and eating places Crabby Bill,s nice atmosphere again reasonable price.

Through the middle of the hotel is an 18 hole putting course which is a nice touch. The pool which is heated is very nice with some nice things added for children. There is also a guest laundry on site

I would recommend a car as there is lots to do around the area as well as many eating places but you do need a car. There is a CVS just few minutes walk from hotel.

Tampa and Busch Gardens are about 45 to 60 minutes drive CLearwater about 10 to 15 minutes

Highly recommend this hotel, it,s clean, rooms are great, nice feel to the place and the staff are friendly. I would definitely come back here

Room Tip: Ask for Habourside rooms fantastic view

My sister & I stayed 2 nights-wish it was more. The room was delightful, & clean.The staff very nice. Loved the tiki bar & the servers were very nice & the Espree de kor that played fri. & sat were great. Only had breakfast in Guanas & wasn't impressed with the food,coffee & service. The other bar/restaurant is closed. Beach relatively close but you do have to walk or drive to it-free parking. Hoping to return next year.

Room Tip: stayed in ground floor/smoking/farthest room on corner from the bars.

Our family stay was great at holiday inn, the reception staff were very helpful.
The place was clean & tidy, the rooms spacious.
The beach was only a 3 minute walk, altogether would recommend this to all.

This hidden gem just on the skirts of Clearwater is such a great family getaway. This was our first stay with the hotel and everything was perfect.The room was a bit small for our family so I requested an upgrade and was offered a villa upgrade at an amazing price. The management was more than accomadating and friendly- 5 star service. The ambiance of the room overlooking the water set such a beautiful ambiance for our trip. Room was super clean and housekeeping was thorough, quick and friendly. The food at Jimmy Guana's was also 5 star- we had seafood dishes that make you want to come back to Florida. My kids loved the pool and mini golf. This place has it all. We will definately be returning to Holiday Inn Indian Rocks Beach.
Note: Previous reviewer appropriately warned of lady in gift shop- accusing peoples children of theft is serious and not good for business. We were going to buy all of our tshirts and souvineers there until she accused our little girl of stealing. Buyers beware.

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking the water are a must- beautiful views.

We recently stayed at this Holiday Inn Indian Rocks for the 3rd time in as many years. It did not disappoint. We find the accomodations perfect for our needs. I would highly recommend as a nice family hotel. We love the miniature golf course INSIDE the hotel - nicely kept up! The restaurant - Jimmy Guanas- has great food for everyone! Love the "Key West" feel -nice decor. It's got a great pool area - although we had no time to make use of it on this trip. Also, just a short walk to the beach. We are always sure to request the kitchenette with the fridge, microwave, small stove & toaster. It sure helps when we need a fast start to the day. All the staff - including the game room & gift shop, are wonderful & helpful. Any time we needed something "extra",(including forgotten toothbrush ) we only waited a few moments - incredible. Over-all most enjoyable.

I took my family here on vacation back in August. The rooms were small and are in desperate need of a makeover. The staff is horrible. From the front desk, to the restaurant staff, everyone I dealt with was down right nasty. Beware of the lady in the gift shop! She made my family feel like ciminals! Everytime my kids would look at something she was right behind them saying "don't touch that, put that down". Not a good experience at all.I tried bring this up to the management of this hotel several times but was dismissed each time,

Room Tip: Stay elsewhere!
