Live in St Petersburg but wanted to get away for the weekend. We decided to go to Indian Rocks. We were able to check-in at 2 on Friday so we could enjoy the pool all afternoon. We're going to try the adjacent water park tomorrow. We upgraded our room to a suite and we couldn't have asked for anything better!... More

I was hesitant to stay here even using free hotel points through IHG because the reviews were all over the place. I'm glad we decided to go because we had a great weekend. We were able to upgrade our free room to a 1200 square foot villa for $50 a night. While I felt like everything was clean, the couch... More

We only had a one night stay at this hotel - and we thought it was nice. We thought the mini golf down the center of the hotel was really pretty cool. The room was spacious and the bathroom was clean, although the tub drain must've been clogged because our showers turned into baths by the time we were done.... More

We found the hotel dirty - both of the couches in our room were stained, the carpet had stains and the shower had mold in it. The only saving grace was the short distance to the beach and walking distance to good restaurants. We spent very little time in our room because it was so unappealing, and we wouldn't have... More

I have never stayed in a hotel like this and we enjoyed it. The middle of the hotel is covered so when it rained we weren't getting rained on while walking to our room.

The rooms were nice and clean. The food at the hotel restaurant was very good but the service was slow and our waitress was not friendly. Love all of the things for kids to do. The water park was a blast! We will be back again.

This is for family vacationing. We stayed for business and found out that it was more conducive to family. The parking garage is always full. The elevator is very slow.

We spent a very relaxing two weeks here. I'd recommend it for couples or families. You can walk to the beach and there are many good restaurants near. The beach is unspoilt so don't expect toilets or a beach bar- just enjoy the view and bathe in the very warm ocean!
