Definitely not worth it. Hotel is about 5 blocks from the beach.

Thank you for your inquiry here at Holiday Inn. We are sorry you felt the beach was too far away. We hope you enjoyed your room at our hotel.

Huge loft suites with vaulted wood ceilings

Posted Jul 7, 2014
Pros: Unique architecture and loft suites; the slides and lazy river being put in will be a lot of fun-wish they were up and running during my stay!
Cons: Shutters for the large window in master suite to help keep room quiet and dark
Location: White sandy beaches, restaurants, and shops 2 blocks away
Quick check in and check out, nice lobby, mini gulf/resturarant/bar on first floor. Either harbor side views or partial ocean views from the rooms. The immaculately clean King Suite rooms provided a fully functioning kitchen (with dishwasher and stove/oven!) and included plates, pans, and utensils. Open floor plan to living room with two couches and big flat screen tv, and off of that a large balcony. Stairs up to huge mater bathroom with jacuzzi tub and large walk in shower with rain head. Master bedroom overlooked living room down below and included a flat screen tv and walk in closet. Location is 2 blocks to white sandy beaches and restaurants. Hotel includes a nice sized pool with barefoot bar and a children's half including waterfalls and water sprayers. Wish we would have spent our entire vacation at this hotel!

Good Visit.

Posted Jun 29, 2014
Pros: Clean and good service. Good restaurant. Good pool to relax. Easy parking. Quick check in.
Cons: No sure as everything was great.
Location: Sand Key, Clearwater beach. The best is to go to John's Pass. Plenty of great restaurants in the area.
This was a good, clean and comfortable hotel. Enjoyed the comfort of their pool. Good food at their restaurant. Relaxing and good service.

Nice location

Posted May 29, 2014
Cons: One of the pools had a number of non-hotel residents in it, no checking to make sure, anyone could just walk right in, and they did.
My wife and I enjoyed our stay, location was great, short drives to other beaches, shops, and places to eat and visit. Relaxing stay, quiet, easy to deal with staff. Had two pools, one more for the kids. Like the bands that played nightly at the bar/rest located on site. Short walk to the beach.

Mini resort like hotel, with a great location.

Posted Apr 10, 2014
Pros: Gift shop, outdoor and indoor restaurant/bars, two pools, indoor golf, beach chairs & umbrellas rental all on hotel premises.
Cons: More free TV channels for rainy days. Free Continental breakfast.
Location: Beautiful Beach less than a 5 minute walk; Clearwater's Pirate Ship for Children a must; Clearwater's Marine Acquarium a must.
Spring break April 2 -9, 2014; grandparents and one grandchild. Loved the white sandy clean beach, which is a very light 5 minute walk from hotel. On the hotel property there are two outdoor pools, a Water Park being currently built, indoor mini golf, indoor/outdoor Restaurant/Bars, gift shop, exercise room, underground covered parking, boat rentals, beach chairs and beach umbrellas rentals. Highly recommended for anyone, but especially families or groups. Four or so different types of rooms and views to choose from. Excellent location between Clearwater and St. Petersburg; not as crowded with tourists as those areas. Good shopping in Largo, very close by. Trolley and City Bus also available.

Charming hotel, close to beach, great family feel

Posted Apr 6, 2014
Arrived early and were given a room right away. Asked for a water view and received a fantastic upgrade to a suite at no charge. The view of the waterway was great as we were able to watch the drawbridge open several times and saw many boats of all types pass by. Also saw the fishing boats come in and clean their catch right in front of our room. Pool area was nice, great zero entry for little kids. Slightly bummed that it was under construction and the pirate ship was gone...sure the new additions will be great when finished.
