“Heading down June 8th and can't wait!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 May 2014

We are visiting the week of June 8th and am so excited. We stayed last year and can't say enough about the hotel, the location and the people! We are again booked for one of the lovely suites that faces the gulf and hope to see dolphins again. I really don't understand the bad reviews I have read because last year the staff couldn't have been more helpful and pleasant. The pool is awesome and well maintained. The beach is literally a 5 minute walk (and that's with a 2 year old). Can't wait to return and we can't wait to visit with George again! 24 days and counting! See you soon!

Thanks for commenting on your last year's stay - and please know we'll let George know you'll be arriving soon!

We're glad you and your family had such fun last year - and we bet the dolphins will once again be on hand to amuse your toddler. Thanks for comments on how easy it is to reach the beach -- we have lots of guest comments on how centrally located we area.

We'll see you soon - and remember to ask the front desk what is going on in the area while you are here - there's always something!

The most unhelpful front desk staff I have encountered anywhere. Very frustrating checkin experience, followed by lots of "I don't knows", "that is in our book?", etc. If you stay here, Google is your friend and bring you own pool towels. Also, hotel is not on the beach, that is not very clearly advertised

We are here for a work-related visit. Hotel is clean, staff is wonderful, beds are comfy...Nice little coffee shop on premises, pool is beautiful. Lounging by the Gulf is not to be missed! Saw manatees and dolphins during first lunch! Really convenient to get to beach, and trolley access is right out front if you don't want to walk. Will gladly return in future, and we're thankful we still have a couple days left of our trip! Only negative I can think of is that the AC units are a bit on the loud side--certainly not enough to deter us!

Room Tip: Gulf side rooms are apparently at a premium. We would have loved to have had one of the rooms with...

Stayed here for 5 nights in September 2014. Had a nice, roomy double room with sea view, even the sunset which was indeed a thrilling experience to watch. OK hotel, typical Holiday Inn I have been told, a short stroll to the beach and by the road leading both south and north of the Clearwater area. Jimmy's Fishbar was OK too, good food, nice and relaxed atmosphere. In special I would like to mention the waiter Tom from B'ham UK; excellent and attentive service - thanks again Tom !

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.
