Best service ever. Erika Dumas and Krystal D were so amazingly hospitable. They truly made the start of my day with their positive happy demeanor. Felt like I was in a five star restaurant simply because of their customer service. This is something I look for when traveling. Oh let’s talk about breakfast Ms Sandys corn beef hash was perfect and I’m picky. Thank you ladies for making my day.

Brytani and Bob were both very accommodating in our stay. They were pleasant each time we spoke and always greeted us and bid us a good day. As for the room itself, the ceiling was moldy in the closet. The iron didn't work so we had to ask for a new one. We discovered, since my daughter was staying for a period of time, housekeeping would come in to clean the room only every 5 days. We had to ask for extra towels each day and even asked for clean sheets, which we offered to change out ourselves due to the hotel's short staff during our stay. The curtains, when opened, had holes in them from what appeared to be from a cat climbing them. No big deal except the fact my daughter, who brought her animals with her, was told she wasn't supposed to be on the third floor – that anyone with animals was supposed to be booked on the first floor. This was not her fault as someone else made the arrangements for her, and he confirmed he told staff when he booked the room that she was bringing animals. Obviously, animals had stayed on the third floor before our stay. Otherwise, the hotel was clean and had a friendly staff. They were there for us when needed.

I needed help late in the evening, Josh drove me to a location he knew would be able to assist me since many other locations were already closed. He waited for me never making me feel rushed. He was pleasant to talk to and kept me from getting anxious about my situation.

I should start out with I stayed in a holiday inn for 35 nights in Illinois in 6 weeks with not one issue for business. decided to book a Presidents’ Day weekend 4 night stay in Florida Ulmerton road holiday in for a mini vacation with my family. On the first morning of my stay I was awakened by a large trash truck at 6:00am out side my window but things happen so I didn’t complain. On the second morning My family and I was awakened again at 3:00am by a large tanker truck backing in to the same dumpster area with a back up alarm while 2 female employees were yelling back and forth like it was 2:00 in the afternoon. I got dressed and went to the front desk to complain. I was told they would relocate me to another part of the hotel the next day. I went to the desk on the 3rd morning to confirm they were moving me, the manager said he would however he needed to clean a room to move me to and it would take a while. I told him I was going to the beach and we could move when I returned he said ok. I drove 1 1/2 hours south to the famous siesta Key beach only to get a phone call from the hotel informing me my room was ready. I told the manager I was 1 1/2 away on the beach and we would move when I returned. He said that I needed to come now or he couldn’t move us because he needed to prep the room I was leaving for the next guest. I asked him to move our bags to the new room because we had packed them already. The manager said he could not for liability reasons. So I called cooperate customer service who said they couldn’t do anything to help me. I returned to the hotel at approximately 7:30 walked in to my room to find they didn’t clean it make the beds or bring me new towels. I went to the desk where I was told housekeeping left for the day but they could give me towels. My last night stay I returned again to find my room was not made again dirty wet towels on the floor in the bathroom. At this point I was thinking this can’t be real I have to be on some kind of reality TV show “there just no way” this could be really happening. The day I was checking out I spoke to a worker who asked me not to use their name but said to me sir this always happens here! Now I’ve looked at the other reviews and didn’t see a single bad review which makes me wonder who is writing the reviews their friends? I guess I will see if this one stays posted. If you are reading this and take a chance with the Ulmerton road Clearwater / St. Petersburg location good luck be cause I’ll sleep in my car before I ever stay there again! The way I see it you rent a hotel room to sleep and take a shower I couldn’t do either. But I guess that’s what I get for $713.99

Staff is good at check in and checkout. Clean rooms. Safe area. Lots of restaurants nearby. Our waitress at the bar was snippy and the mixed drinks were not good (seemed like low shelf rum). At $170 a night with discounts, this place was not near as nice as the Holiday Inn Airport in Cincinnati, Ohio that was $90. Breakfast (you have to pay for) is very good with friendly helpful staff. Get a room away from the elevator and little meeting places or you might just get woke up at 2:30 am when the drunks continue partying there. Got very noisy.

This hotel is clean as you would expect from a Holiday Inn and located very close to the St. Petersburg/Clearwater (PIE) airport. Staff was for the most part friendly. What you would expect for a Holiday Inn. However, this is an older Holiday Inn. Beds were very uncomfortable, AC unit did not function correctly, and there was a musty smell in the hallways. A free Continental breakfast is not provided even though the rooms cost more than I have ever paid at any other Holiday Inn. Breakfast was an additional minimum charge of $10 plus tax per person. And, if you are expecting a shuttle to the airport - go elsewhere. Upon booking with a live staff member and at check-in I was promised shuttle service to the airport; I just had to let them know the night before when I needed it. Both times the staff was informed as to when I needed it. The night before leaving I spoke with the gal at the front desk and was told she could not authorize a late check out nor shuttle service; and told me I had to speak with the desk staff in the morning. Early the next morning, upon speaking with staff I was told that they could not provide the promised shuttle service as it was not being offered until 3 p.m. Mind you check out is at 11 a.m. The reason I chose this hotel was because of past experience with Holiday Inns and the offered shuttle service. The next time I am in the Tampa area, I will definitely stay elsewhere.

I travel a significant amount and staying at this holiday inn has been top notch as far as customer service is concerned. It started with my shuttle pick up from the airport. Scott and Mike picked me up and gave me the most informational shuttle ride I’ve ever had and like I said, I travel a lot and take a lot of hotel shuttles, and to have an available free courtesy shuttle to take you anywhere you need to go within 5 miles is incredible. Once off the shuttle, Bob at the front desk helped me with checking in and assisting my service dog and I with ease and gave me the option of floor choice which let me add never happens and being on the first floor with a dog is much easier. The room is small but clean, quiet, up to date, LOTS of outlets :) and just cozy in general. You will not regret your stay here.

We stayed here only because it is close to the airport, Upon checking in the lady said she was putting us on the 5th floor, not sure why, we paid for a king standard but whatever. During check in we stated we were smokers and would like to be on a lower floor to have easier access to go outside. She put us on the 1st floor, which was fine until all the furbabies started barking. We utilized the bar and ordered some food, bar was short staffed so the 2 people working were quite busy around the time we were in there. We didn't mind, everyone is short staffed anymore. We retired back to our room, #107, the hall had a horrible moldy smell. Got into our room and the toliet would not flush, called the front desk, they promptly sent a maintenence guy in and he fixed it. We had an early flight, we had to be up at 3:00 am. I got up and jumped in the shower to NO hot water. I washed the best I could in cold water, finished up and went outside to calm down a bit before talking to front desk, I proceeded back inside and of course my key card wouldn't open the door, b/f had to let me in, who was still n bed. Called the front desk and spoke with John. I told him about the cold shower and the toliet and the key card. John said, "I don't know what you want me to do for you", I told him I didn't know either, I let him know we were leaving the hotel soon to catch a flight, he then said" I can put you on the top floor with more ammneities" I asked him how being on the top floor had more ammenities, we were actually offered the top floor room at check in for no additional cost, the room was pre-paid. He said to me "if you would of let me know the problems before I could help you better" Made no sense, I just discovered no hot water and key card not working. he said "What is it you would like me to do, this is the 1st no hot water complaint we have had" John seemed to very good at dodging the issue, I asked him to discount the room a little since we couldn't shower, he told me no. We grabbed our stuff and left. I would NOT reccommend this hotel to anyone, it was a very bad experience to the beggining of our vacation.

We only stayed here for one night to shuttle to the airport the next morning, which is a super convenient service they provide, but the staff was so sweet and accommodating during our short stay. Bob at the front desk and Yolanda made traveling with a toddler a breeze and even went out of their way to get us some milk to help put her to sleep- and they did it with a smile! It made our whole night because it would have been a long one without their help. Awesome staff!

The crappy van they have will only go to the airport. you have to call them to come to get you and they only operate it during certain times. They will not go to the Tampa Pier.

Is there a shuttle to the royal Caribbean cruise ship dock?
Answer from Carlos A
St. Petersburg, Florida
We do not service the dock directly, however I believe there is a shuttle from TPA to the Caribbean cruise line (operated independently or by the cruise line). If you are staying at the hotel, it would be our pleasure to drop you off at the airport and if I’m correct, you would be able to hop on the cruise lines' shuttle to get to the dock. I hope this helps. Happy travels!
