I will start off with the positives...great location and clean rooms. However the negatives outweighed the positives. Bryan at the pool, should be fired! He was rude, confrontation, and said the “f” bomb numerous times in front of my daughter and other customers. Totally unprofessional and I don’t understand how he is still employed there. The rules at the pool changed everyday. Angela, the manager, was also unprofessional when dealing with Bryan’s inexplicable behavior. She would not listen to the other side of the story and was the furthest example of what customer service is all about. How she became a manager in unbeknownst to me. She finally listened to the other side of the story however it was far too late for me. When a guest finally went crazy at the pool (using racial slurs, etc), no pool guard could be found. Totally unacceptable! With all this being said, the Holiday Inn and suites, beside location, is a terrible place to stay!

This hotel is now my favorite. We were there for Father's Day weekend. We had a suite on the 7th floor. Its was a Gulfview. Clean room, hotel and friendly staff. We ate at both Jimmy restaurant. My favorite is the one at The Edge, food and drinks are better. I will stay here again and again.

Haven't had much to do with the staff due to Covid and masks - which is completely understandable. Wi-fi is extremely temperamental.The rooms are very dated. I also booked some sort of suite but it is small compared to other Holiday Inns. Its a five minute walk to the beach in the Florida heat from here. Maybe this is just an expensive area but I scanned other prices and they seemed in the same ball park for better beach access. They charge £20 a night for parking and also rent their car park out but give guests no priority so some days, despite paying the fee and staying here it takes a while to find a space.There is also frequent trouble and police presence in the car park since I've arrived. This the most expensive hotel I have had on IHG and the worst quality (I am a platinum IHG member). I expected a LOT more for the price.

We always appreciate guest feedback and are sorry your stay with us did not live up to its expectations. Please know we thank you for being a platinum IHG member and that our goal is to make each guest's experience a positive one. We do price competitively with other beach resorts in the area and please know that most all of the area beachfront hotels do charge for parking. And, we continue to have renovation/maintenance plans in place -- some you may not actually see such as a/c services, etc. It is unfortunate there was an issue requiring police presence in the parking garage but we would dispute that this is a "frequent" occurrence. As for the beach being a five-minute walk, that is true, but there is the trolley and Florida Free Rides that will transport you. We have been hosting guests and especially families here for generations and they continue to return because of our location, friendly staff and affordability. Ultimately, we hope you left with good memories of Clearwater Beach and that you'll once again return for more sun and sand pleasure. Christine Bottger General Manager

Had a great experience at this hotel. The room and pool were clean and the staff was friendly. We ate breakfast and dinner at the hotel and the food was awesome. I especially loved the breakfast wrap. My daughter said the buffalo chicken dip was the best she ever had. I loved that the tables were spaced out and the menu was not limited due to Covid. We will be back!!

Earlier this month I decided to ''get away" from NYC and stayed in this hotel for two weeks. My friend from Atlanta joined me few days after. I can not begging of how much I enjoyed my stay, from clean room, locating (latterly on the beach), restaurant (with life music in the evening) etc... The most memorable was the Front Desk Team. Zeny and Angie were helpful, kind and simply amazing during our two weeks stay. Always positive and happy. The last 4 days we had booked another hotel in Dundin and after just one hour, we decided that we are going back and try our luck with availability. Angie and the Team did their magic and got us a room for the remaining 4 days. We were beyond happy. THAT IS WHAT YOU CALL EXCELLENT COSTUMER SERVICE. I will be back soon!! Thank you!!
