“4th of July in Florida”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2013

My wife and I had the pleasure of staying at the Holiday Inn and Suites in St. Petersburg, Florida this past 4th Of July holiday weekend.
The room was clean and neat and the complimentary breakfast the next morning was very satisfying.
We happened to be in town to watch the Tampa Bay Rays play the Chicago White Sox. The beauty of staying at the Holiday Inn is that they had a free shuttle to and from the game. Makes it convenient and safer if you want to have a beer or two while watching the game. It also saves you the cost and hassle of parking at the stadium.
The area around the hotel is very safe and if the complimentary breakfast is not to your liking there is a Cracker Barrell next door.
I would definitely stay here again if I was in the neighborhood again.

We stayed here June 29th for 1 night and found the hotel more than adequate, everyone was nice the room was clean, and the bed good. The room carpet was old, needs replacing but otherwise very nice. The breakfast offerings were also good.

We wre there to go to a Tampa Bay Rays game the hotel offers a shuttle to the game and back, but we did not use as we had alread purchsed parking at the stadium.

Only resturant close is Cracker Barrell but hotel gave us map to other restaurants, about 5-7 minutes away, included Outback, Chilis, many others to choose from.

I was passing through town for business and stayed one night at this hotel with the family. The service was excellent. The central location was convienent for the purpose of this particular stay. It is just a little far from the beach for my normal activities in St Pete, but I would highly recommend this property if you have business in the area.

This hotel is at a good location, it was near to the places we visited for our anniversary. We had stayed here for our honeymoon way back when, and it was nicer than we remembered it so they have been keeping the place up nicely. When we walked in we felt like the lobby was clean and smelled nice, we saw comfortable couches to sit at with pretty pictures and plants all around. The front desk staff was really friendly and helpful when we checked in. When we made special requests later they were very accommodating and made us feel welcome and that goes a long way when you are far away from home. The room was clean and cozy - again, nicer than we remembered. Bed was a little firm for my taste but we still had a really good time while we were at the hotel. It was nice and quiet during our stay, I am a light sleeper and I wasn’t woken up by any loud noises in the hallway or in the nearby rooms. They have a cute breakfast area that felt like a café with all the tables. We didn’t use it but we saw there was a business center with a computer and a printer. We’ll come back again, thank you for taking care of us and making our stay a good one.

Stayed in this hotel for one night because I was attending a concert at State Theater downtown. The location is nice, very easy to get to off the interstate, you kind of have to cut through the Cracker Barrel parking lot to get into the parking area, but it's not too confusing. Check in was easy, I was at the hotel a little early (around 2, check in was at 4) but they were able to get me a room and waived the early check-in fee.
The room was clean, fairly unremarkable, decent size, good linens, nice towels (water pressure not good in the shower though.) and even though we overlooked the parking lot, the room wasn't overly loud, didn't notice any road noise from the interstate nearby. A/C in the room was the older, under the window type, but worked phenomenally well, our room was freezing, which was welcome after a late night downtown.
Breakfast area was large, clean and well staffed, food items were of the standard free breakfast variety, but tasted fine, there is a Cracker Barrel right next door if you are looking for more. Coffee was a little weak, but passable.
All in all, it is a perfectly clean and convenient place to sleep and have breakfast.

Room Tip: lobby is pretty busy around breakfast time, I'd avoid first floor rooms.

The service in this hotel is awesome. Really the front desk staff did an awesome job. The real problem with the hotel is it is just a little old. It really needs to be renovated. Seem new carpet some new furniture fresh paint. A facelift basically. The locatin is great and the staff is awesome, if the hotel was just updated this would be a real gem. I do have to admit for what the staff is working with, including the cleaning crew it is not a bad place if the price is right.

Room Tip: The suites are very very small. If the staff would take some of the furniture out it would be much...

We stayed at this hotel during Memorial Day Weekend. Hotel is easy to find right off Interstate and right next to a very convenient Cracker Barrel Restaurant. We arrived before check-in time but our room was ready and the desk clerk was excellent! (sorry cant remember his name but he was young and worked Thursday 5/23/2013 at 2 pm) All the employees greeted us each time we saw them. The housekeeper for our room was very friendly and polite. The room was clean and the beds and bed linens very clean. Breakfast was included and the breakfast room was clean and well stocked each of the mornings we stayed. The breakfast attendant was efficient and friendly. The cinnamon rolls were great! It is a great hotel to stay at when attending a Ray's Baseball game at Tropicana Field! Just 5 minutes away. We attended an event at the Mahaffey Theatre and it was just 10 minutes away. This hotel is in a residential area so there isn't much food places or shopping nearby. There was a Waffle House and gas station North of the hotel.
