“Fabulous hotel!”
Reviewed 3 December 2008

I booked this hotel on behalf of a large group of cat fanciers and breeders, in town for a cat show at Ross Norton Center. The hotel staff, from time of booking to end of the event were spectacular! As I am a hotel salesperson, I appreciated their professionalism all the way thru the booking process, their very accommodating staff who dealt with all our individuals, and their housekeeping staff who had a little extra clean up as many of us had cats traveling with us. All their staff members were spectacular to deal with, excellent customer service all the way around, I can't say enuff positive stuff about this hotel. We had a group dinner at Tuscon's on Sat nite, that was great; the hotel accommodated our members with a mtg room on a Monday, that was excellent, and lunch was catered by the nearby deli, excellent food, BTW. All feedback from the individual members, our VIP judges, was excellent on the hotel, they were all very pleased with the property and the staff and they all want to come back!

I was very pleased with my poolside room, very comfortable and easy access for cat loading and unloading. I never saw breakfast so I can't speak to that. A few of our gang had suites and they seemed to be very happy with their spacious accommodations. My room was lovely, updated and comfortable. I loved being able to sit poolside with my coffee and ciggies, and enjoyed the peaceful mornings.

I can say that in my 25+ yrs of being in the hotel biz, and with all my personal and biz travel, that I have never felt so good about a hotel, my stay, the staff, the location to my event venue, and about the area F&B. Thanks to the staff, major kudos. And hopefully we'll be back in Clearwater and your hotel in 2009!

We stayed in a poolside room. It was lovely to walkout the slider door to the pool area.

The rooms were updated with nice furnishings and were very clean. The bed was very comfortable and the bathroom was clean.

The front desk staff was very friendly. The breakfast was good with hot items like eggs and sausage, as well as biscuits, rolls, bread, yogurt and fruit. 24 hour coffee and tea available.

The pool area is nice, and the hotel has a hottub too. There is a lake behind the hotel with some major electrical lines.

The hotel is in a business area, so it is quiet on the weekend, but there are a couple of restaurants next to the hotel.

Only downside is when we stayed it was very cold in Florida. The heater did not work in our room, so we moved to the room next door. Unfortunately, in the next room we had difficulty opening and closing the slider door to the pool. We stayed four nights. One morning around 6-7a.m. no one was managing the front desk. Even when we called the front desk from the lobby phone, no one answered.

None of the above issues would prevent us from staying there again. Great value using Travelocity Last Minute Deals. Highly recommend this hotel.

I can't say enough good things about this hotel. We booked the room at the last minute (in town for the Rays/Sox game). We were able to get a great rate.

The rooms seem to have been updated and were very clean. The bed was comfortable and the bathroom and the shower were clean.

The staff was very friendly at checkin and checkout. The breakfast wwas good with hot items like eggs and sausage, as well as biscuits, rolls, bread, yogurt and fruit.

The pool area is nice, and the hotel has a hottub too. There is a lake behind the hotel.

The hotel is in a business area, so it is quiet on the weekend, but there are a couple of restaurants next to the hotel.

The only downside is that not far away there are some strip clubs, but the area around the hotel seemed safe.

Enjoy my stay. My group had three rooms and all of us appreciated the friendly attitude of the staff. They were most helpful, the facility was clean and I have no complaints.

My husband and I and two kids stayed at the Holiday Inn Express ICOT and it was very nice. The staff was very friendly and the Assistant General Manager and General Manager were out greeting their guests and it made us feel so welcome. Great Job Ladies!
Cookies in the afternoon really were a nice touch, especially for the kids. I would tell everyone to stay here when their traveling to the Clearwater area.

Thanks for the wonderful stay and we will be back.

My boyfriend and I stayed here for our Spring Break getaway and I have to say that it was a pretty average hotel. The only thing i didnt like was the front desk service, we got in at 2 am after 32 hrs of driving down from NY and my boyfreind and I were tired and they gave us a hell of a time checking in and the front desk attendant finally answered the phone after like ten tries- so that was very poor. But other wise the pool is very nice and it is in close proximity to the beaches like a half an hour away but there are many nice restuarants and shops nearby. The only thing about Clearwater is that the closest nightlife for young people like us was in Ybor city about 45 min away so there is no young people entertainment there and there are tons of strip joints near this place, some people might like that but i didnt really care for that. I loved the housekeeping staff they were probably the most friendliest of any hotel that ive ever stayed in and they replenshed our towels and made up the rooms every other day. it was comfortable and private. i would recommend this for anyone who has access to a car and wants cheap lodging cuz the beach is not that far away and there are tons of little shops all along the way to the beach for those who like cheap discount souvenier shops like me!
