Holiday Inn Hotel & Suites Clearwater Beach

Reviewed 13 May 2014

Stayed for 5 nights and really enjoyed the pool area. Too bad there's no hot tub. The hotel is slightly off the main drag, where the majority of shopping, restaurants and beach access is. However, it's just a short walk or quick drive to the pier and the amazing beach. The hotel has a decent restaurant with a nice patio for dining outside. There was also a tiki bar pool side. The room we had was fine for 4 of us, though not a lot of counter top in the bathroom for all of our toiletries. We did enjoy the kitchenette though and tended to spread out there. We lost the remote control to the tv and within minutes we were provided a new one.

Room Tip: We stayed on the ground floor at pool level which made it easy to run in and out of the room to use...

Thanks for sharing comments on your recent stay. You're right - the ground floor pool rooms make it so easy to get to the pool and Jimmy's...we're glad you enjoyed both.

The beach is within easy access, and anytime you don't feel like walking, the Jolley Trolley is there to get you there quickly. It's great you had a few days to unwind and explore the area.

We hope you enjoy your summer and that you'll return to see us again.

Stayed here for one night and on the water was our criteria. Although it is not on the beach, this hotel is still waterfront and we did get to see Dolphins from the pool area. Beach is a 5 minute walk down the road which was easy. Spent most of our time at the beach and had the pleasure of having 6 Manatee's swimming with us. Very fun. The hotel provides beach towels to take to the beach, and pool towels to use at the pool. You do have to pay for parking but I think you end up paying for parking where you go around the beach area. The staff at this hotel are friendly and helpful, we especially liked the free lemon water in the lobby. Would stay again simply based on the location and the close proximity to everything.

Room Tip: For more $$ you can have a waterfront view.

Second time coming here. Very nice & clean. Rates are very reasonable. Helpful staff. On the water butt not on a beach (about a 5 minute walk). Jimmy's restaurant & beach bar is a huge plus. Nice pool but no hot tub. Definite recommend it for a reasonable beach trip to Clearwater.

The hotel for the most part was great. However, I Valle to ask for the water to be more than lukewarm and was told it came from one central source and there was nothing that could be done. If you desire a hot bath or shower, stay elsewhere.

Thank you for taking time to review your stay with us.

We're glad you enjoyed the resort and facilities and we're sorry if the in-room water temperature did not meet your expectations. It is true, it does come from one source, and we do keep it adjusted to proper temperatures for our standards.

Hopefully you made some good vacation memories while you were here and we thank you for
visiting us.

This Holiday Inn is a pretty good value considering how expensive some of the other places are that are nearby. Nice restaurant located in the hotel as well. The only complaint we had was they power washed the brick by the pool during the day when the pool is heavily occupied so it was VERY noisy and the smell of gas was evident as well. Not only that, but after they were finished, you couldn't even tell that anything was done different to the appearance. Very unnecessary. Other than that, pretty nice place to stay and within walking distance to the public beach.

Thank you for your kind words about your recent stay and letting others who read reviews know that we are a good value. Being a Holiday Inn, we're all about value for all our guests, especially families with kids.

We're glad you enjoyed the restaurant, deck and other resort facilities. Regretfully we are sorry you were inconvenienced by the noise of our maintenance during regular cleanings. Although you may not have seen a difference, Florida humidity necessitates that we maintain the building exterior periodically.

Hopefully you can return again and enjoy a bit of relaxing atmosphere. Fall is beautiful in Florida! Until then, please stay up to date with us on our Facebook page.

Kind regards,

Christine Bottger

I just love this hotel. It has a great atmosphere and the staff always encourages lots of fun. The sunset party on the deck was a great time. The pool is beautiful and the beach is a very short walk. The front desk staff was super friendly and housekeeping was excellent. This hotel is extremely clean and safe.

I always opt for the gulf front rooms because the views are amazing! I saw dolphins swim past my room this visit and I was thrilled. This hotel has a fun atmosphere without being too crazy. Jimmy's is a must! I will be back in a few weeks and can't wait.

My husband and I chose this hotel because I really wanted to be able to sit on a balcony and enjoy my morning coffee. We made the perfect choice. This hotel is not beach front, but it is water front and a very short walk to the beach. There have chaise lounge chairs that look right over the water that make you feel like you're sitting on the beach, but without the messy sand. The hotel restaurant is located right on the water also, and they have nightly entertainment, happy hour and a sunset celebration each night which makes for a great way to spend the evening. We even sat on our balcony in the evenings and watched the entertainment from the privacy of our own room. The staff was top notch and very helpful.

Room Tip: Ask for a gulf front balcony room on a higher floor. Great views!
