“Excellent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 July 2014 via mobile

The hotel was nice! We were there for business and pleasure. We arrived 8 hours before check in. Guest Service Rep.Joan C allowed us to check into our room early and she extended our check out time. I give the hotel 5 stars because of the hospitality and family friendliness. However you should know that the hotel is not directly on the beach. It is an ocean view hotel, but there is no real access to the beach from the hotel. To gain access to the beach we walked approximately 1 block to the beach, which was good enough for us. Highly recommend and I will be returning with my family. Thank you again Joan C. ( guest services)!!!

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 July 2014

We stayed in a suite that was very comfortable. There was a large living room, with kitchen area with microwave and fridge. Having two bathrooms was helpful with 3 adults and two children. One of the bathrooms had a large shower, the other a bath/shower. The balconies have a safety lock which we appreciated traveling with a 2 yr old who figured out the latch quickly. Towels were changed daily.

The pool was great and open late in the evening. There is a second small shallow pool for kids. The hotel provides towels for the pool area.

The only drawback to the trip was no crib for a full day which was ordered well in advance of the trip. They apologized when we called, but we didn't get the crib until late the second day. It was difficult sleeping the first night with a 9 month old baby and no crib.

Thank you for taking time to review your stay. We are so glad your family enjoyed a bit of vacation time here on Clearwater Beach.

We're pleased you enjoyed the spaciousness of the suite; they are popular since they allow a bit more room for people to spread out.

Please accept our apologies for the delay on the crib delivery. Please know that all comments received through reviews are passed on directly to the appropriate department head so that we can continue to improve our customer service standards.

We hope you'll continue to visit with your family and enjoy all the fun the area has to offer.

My husband and I stayed here for three nights during our visit to Florida and were extremely satisfied with many of the amenities. We actually arrived several hours before check-in time due to a very early flight, but were able to check in early. We were thrilled! While we were getting checked in, there was refreshing fruit-infused water to drink, so that was a nice welcome to hot Florida.

We asked to upgrade to a Gulf view room, but there were none available. However, our city view room was actually on the side of the building, so we did have a partial water view from our balcony. The room was clean and comfortable, with a microwave and refrigerator. Cannot complain at all about our accommodations. The only disappointment was that there was no in-room safe. I would expect that in a touristy area like this. I've had a credit card stolen from my hotel room elsewhere and am always leery of leaving things behind when we go out.

The pool was clean and there was plenty of lounge chairs around it and on the deck facing the water. There is not beach access with this hotel because it is rocky there at the shoreline. However, this did not stop several guests from climbing down into the water, especially when the tide was low in the afternoon. The only annoying thing about laying around the pool and deck was the sound of the wave runners and there were lots of them out there at times. Oh, and the poolside restrooms were quite gross-dark and really wet like there was not proper drainage in the floor.

Te poolside tiki bar was nice, with friendly staff and good drinks. The pina coladas were fabulous! You could also order food from Jimmy's Fish House and get it delivered to the tables around the bar. Very convenient.

Parking was $12 a day for hotel guests, which I think is expensive, but maybe it is even more at other hotels. We usually stay in condos or cottages here where we don't pay to park, so I guess we have been spoiled. All in all though, this hotel was a good value for the money because of it other amenities!

Room Tip: Be sure to get a full Gulf view room when you make your reservations because you probably won't...

Thank you! We're so glad to hear you and your husband enjoyed your recent stay with us. And, we appreciate that you took time to write such a thorough review. We're pleased that the resort overall met your expectations and that you left with good memories.

Please know that all guest comments are shared with appropriate department heads (the outside lavatory) - we strive for complete customer satisfaction in all areas.

You are correct - parking fees are charged at most beach properties because of lack of space; we try to keep our rates quite affordable.

Thanks again for sharing your memories, and we hope you'll come back and stay with us for even more. Also....if you're on Facebook, please stay in touch with us!

Nice place for the money. Would go back again. No complaints! The restaurant did not have very good waiters. The first 2 we had was not friendly or seem to want to be there. We decided to give it one more try because of the convenience , & got one better. They should probably train them to be a little more friendly.

Room Tip: Get the gulf view side..

We were looking for a hotel just like this. Right on the beach, however, not $300+/night. My wife and I went there for the night to be at a wedding that evening. No complaints and our second room was actually a suite. Very good location and friendly staff.

Room Tip: The suites are really nice for the money and location.

First of all would have given higher rating because the room itself was very nice.....however, when you pull into the parking lot and given a hard time because they don't believe you are staying there because they are SELLING parking spaces to beach tourists for $25.00!!
So after a half hour of searching for a spot finally someone left and I grabbed spot only to be charged $12.00 by the hotel!
The hotel smelled damp, and busy with tourists walking in and out. No personal service that I expect from Holiday Inn. You are just a number.
The restaurant Jimmy's was the Pitts. That's another review.
I would never stay here again.

Thank you for your review of your recent stay. We're sorry you felt disappointment at the service, especially the parking fees. Since your profile says you live in Clearwater, you surely realize that charging for parking is quite common along the beach because space is at a premium.

You are right - this is a busy time for all of us on the beach, so people coming and going in the hotel would be the norm.

We do thank you for staying with us and hopefully you left with some good memories.

I stayed at this hotel for an entire week with four teenagers. We got the two room suite and it was fantastic! The boys took the living are with pull out couch and the girls had the bedroom. I was very happy that both rooms had their own bathroom so each set of teenagers had privacy and didn't have to go I to each other's rooms. We were able to bring our own food and drinks to put in the kitchen in the room,
so the only expense was dinner. The kids loved the location and the pool. They were able to walk to the pier at night for the evening activities.
The boys loved the arcade. You can rent jet skis right by the hotel. My friends and I were able to walk next door to Shephards for great live music but then return to a quiet hotel to sleep. The only issue was that my sons playstation would not hook up to the TVs in the room and that is a good activity once we are done for the day since we aren't big tv watchers. Overall the quality for the price is the best on that beach that I can tell after researching other properties. Being right on the beach is nice, but this hotel is right on the water with a beautiful view and a short walk to the beach so it was still a great location.
