“nice, but not near the beach if that's what you want”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 6, 2013

I misunderstood that I thought this hotel was near the beach, which it isn't. If you read the other reviews, you can see it is very near a mice downtown area with many restaurants. The rooms were clean, and the hotel was pretty quiet considering how full it was. The people were going out of their way to help in any way they could. It was also nice that they opened up a meeting room across the hall from the breakfast area when the breakfast area was full- I don't see many hotels do that, but they should.

Recommend this place. Close to a couple of breweries and downtown Dunedin which is very cute. The bike trail goes right behind the hotel and you can travel between towns on this trail. Despite being located on major roads, it was quiet at night. Good restaurants nearby and the ocean is just a block or two away although it is not a sandy beach area. Not very close to Busch Gardens - took us about 40 minutes to drive there. Avoid Hwys 275 /4 during weekends/spring break. major traffic jams. Hotel staff very friendly and accommodating. Would return to Dunedin and this hotel.

Room Tip: Poolside rooms are probably quieter but we were not bothered by any street noise in our room (304)

The staff are very friendly. The rooms are big and so comfortable. Nothing is too much to ask of the staff. The room is clean and quite modern. Breakfast is included and a good variety. Stayed 5 night and would stay here again. Only a short walk to the main street. Loved it! Have internet in the room if you have a device or free internet in the business centre.

We chose this hotel because of its location related to the auto exchange ball park. Only a 10 minute walk down the bike trail to the stadium. This hotel was and perfectly located. Nice pool and hot tub area outside. Breakfast was great in the morning. Would stay here again while visiting for spring training. My only complaint would be the price. I do understand it being high season and in the middle of spring break and spring training but would have liked to see a little lower rate.

This Holiday Inn Express is located adjacent to the Pinellas Bike Trail in the middle of Dunedin and that makes it perfect to leave your vehicle in the parking lot and go either North or South on the trail. It has a very good breakfast with a friendly staff. It is also an easy walk to Main St for a nice selection of restaurants for dinner. We'll certainly stay there next year.

After driving from Orlando to the Tampa Bay area, we ran into this hotel as we were looking for a place to stay. Arrived just in time for the Dunedin Mardi Gras parade (of which we had never heard but is a nice event, where you can even drink beer in the streets...).

Very nice and clean rooms, decent breakfast and very friendly & helpful staff!

I stayed there two nights recently and though the room is pretty standard for Holiday Inns, and realize this is "high season" in touristy (and very nice) Dunedin, the per night prices plus taxes, seem rather high. Breakfast buffet was good though, better than most. A fridge in the room, but no microwave. A convenient location and walking distance to Main Street in Dunedin and to the waterfront are the positives.
