Reviewed November 15, 2013

This hotel is an excellent place to stay in the Clearwater area as it's one of the only hotels that offer free airport pick up and transportation to your place of work if you are close. The staff is very friendly and the bar is an excellent place for a drink after work. There are many fine places to dine within minutes of the hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the inside of the hotel and you won't hear the planes

The location of this airport Hotel is very convenient. However, I drove to this hotel from Merritt Island. The area is a newly developed community with every amenity found within reason from the hotel, however, I felt no need to leave the property...We were a very large, noisy festival, the hotel accepted us which was a pleasant surprise. The service to our room was extremely pleasant, from check in to check out. The food was reasonable, I enjoyed fish and chips one evening, a nice salad another with cheese & tomato and a nice balsamic dressing. The first evening I had Shrimp and pasta, the sauce was tasty, the shrimp were of nice size. I would say the only issue was with the lack of bar staff. As a patron, I felt sorry for how harried the bar staff was with such an onslaught of customers. The breakfast was a buffet service, the 2nd day I stuck to packaged products..

Room Tip: I enjoyed the room on the side of the airport because the view was lovely.

I recently stayed at this Holiday Inn for a wedding that was held on site. I have not stayed at a Holiday Inn for decades. The hotel is non descript on the outside with a somewhat cold modern decor feel on the inside. My expectations were low upon arrival.
But I must say, that the rooms, although basic, were adequate and the beds were surprisingly comfortable as were the pillows. The rooms were quiet despite folks celebrating in the hallways. The staff was very accommodating and went out of their way to be helpful. They did a good job with the wedding and the food, although not exceptional, was adequate.
For the price it was a good value.

For business, I stay at this hotel. It provides great value for money, and location is good too.
Hotel and rooms are old, but compared with the price, it is very good value. There is onsite restaurant and bar.

A couple of comments for the hotel: If you really want to increase your score, try renewing simple things like the bathroom, or maybe adding a closet.

Room Tip: Make sure you get a room on the wing away from the airport, and preferably facing the pool, since th...

We chose the Holiday Inn St. Pete Clearwater Airport because of the location. We knew from the time we arrived that we had picked the right hotel. The front desk staff was so friendly and they knew a lot about the area. Our room was so fresh and clean. The bed was really comfortable. Our breakfast was outstanding. I can't wait to book my next stay!

Flying in from the UK we were looking for a stop over near to Tampa airport - this was ideal. A short car ride away, easy to find. We were met by two very friendly, polite young men at the check in desk who gave us vouchers for our breakfast and also a voucher for two free drinks at the bar which was a nice touch. Our room was not the biggest nor the most modern but it was clean and had everything we needed. We went down to the bar area and had a couple of drinks (the bar staff were extremely friendly , efficient and did an excellent job. We ordered some wings and chicken to go and both were great- thumbs up from the kids. I forgot the toothpaste and the guys on the desk gave me a tube - great service. The next morning we went down for breakfast. Although the breakfast item were running low and it seemed a little disorganised, one member of staff in particular was very busy- he was running around trying to attend to everyone, serve coffee etc but he could have done with some more help from the others on duty. The breakfast was just ok. We didnt try out the pool as we were heading off to Vinoy Park for the Vans Warped Tour but it looked ok. Although this hotel is near to the airport we were not too disturbed by noise from the planes. We would stay here again.

Room Tip: After reading other comments I requested a room on the 5th floor via email before we arrived- this i...
