“Great Airport location”
Reviewed 28 December 2006

This hotel has apparently undergone a renovation since the last review. We had a very nice room on 5th floor. Very comfy beds. Nice bar area with pool table.on the main floor. We were only here one night, so didn't have a chance to eat there. Free shuttle to airport (5 min drive to PIE airport). Several restaurants and fast food joints within walking distance. Very friendly staff. Also, there is a Thrifty car rental counter in the lobby. This was basically a place for us to stay to take an early morning flight out. We were very pleased with our stay and will use this hotel for that purpose every time we fly out of the St. Pete airport.

Reviewed 27 April 2005

The first impression of this hotel is positive. Modern appearance on the outside large parking lot and impressive lobby. Open the door to your room and you will flash back 20 years to when you stayed at a Holiday Inn with your parents. Old decor touches, like the carpet, furniture, drapes and bed spread are historic. Hotel needs to refurbish rooms. Bathroom has ben updated with a new shower curtain and shower head! Sink fixtures are very old. Service was fine hard working staff. Good location with a number of restaurants nearby and good access to highway.

The hotel was nice. Right on the water, had a great view. What needs to be looked at by management is the restaurant which rotates overlooking the bay and the ocean. Truely this is just a novelty as of current as I can imagine that anyone likes the food or service that is currently in place. We went up for the breakfast buffet and the only thing good about it was the view. The dishes were dirty, they have a stack of plates I went through all of them to find the "cleanest". The breakfast buffet for two people was 27.00, and let me tell you it was not worth it. The scrambled eggs were watery, they ran out of several things that were not replaced until I went to leave. Two items were in the same bin with one spoon in which to serve them. This really grossed me out. The person with whom I was dining ordered a hot chocolate and they brought it out in a glass with paper towels around it. I will probably visit the hotel again when Im in St. Pete, I will just go to Village inn or Cracker Barrell for breakfast.

the first room we went to smelled like urine. the lady was nice and she changed our room. the second room was fine. when i got home i realized that i left my bag. i called the next day and they said it was there to come pick it up tomorrow. when i picked up my bag i realized that the housekeepers looked through my bag and stole some items. if you go there leave your luggage in the car. they have thieves there!!!!

this report was from many years ago. I came on as GM in 2004 and can honestly say we have never had an incident like this occur.

Please try us again, we are totally renovated and ranked one of the best Holiday inns in the Clearwater area.
