Everything you need.

Posted Apr 15, 2014
Cons: Would like to have a room facing the water on our next trip.
Location: Love the location. Everything is in walking distance or you can always hop on the trolley if you don't want to do the walk.
My husband and I stayed at Shepards next door last October. They were doing major renovations so we were allowed to use the pool at the Holiday inn instead. As soon as we saw the pool area and all the rest we decided this was the place for us. Best pool I've been to down there and the tiki bar and Jimmy's restaurant basically provided everything we needed. Not right on the beach but that's about a 5 minute walk. We're really pool people anyway and being right on the water just made it perfect. Great boat watching and we were able to see dolphins while sitting at Jimmy's having a bite to eat. Everything we had there was excellent by the way. Live music every night too. Lots of fun. We go down to Clearwater a couple of times a year and this is going to be our hotel from now on.

perfect location

Posted Apr 8, 2014
It was one of the most relaxing vacations we ever had. The hotel was close to the beach, restaurants, and downtown Clearwater Beach. Everyone was so nice and the room was perfect. We are definitely going back.

Hotel was affordable ocean front nice area

Posted Apr 4, 2014
Pros: View from the pool area and our room. The heated pool the chairs at pool area convience of bar with entertainment.
Cons: The room service part. Room not gone in was gone from room most of first day. Service our room 1 time of 5 day stay ask us to sign paper for not done
Location: Location beautiful boat tours, beach area lots of shopping and eating choices thank goodness for heated pool in march.
First time to clear water, florida area. Very beautiful somewhat too tourist like. The boat tours are expensive but well worth the view. The aquarium was disappointing for the cost and the minimal time the dolphin was avaiable to view. Flew into tampa and was very easy to get to resort area. Special shout out to the waitress at the crabby shack "Fontana" very special from the visitors in Bellevue,Ohio. Plan to return in future will stay at the Holiday Inn again nice view and affordable the mustang convertable rented at the airport was excellant and affordable at the Dollar rental (never heard of this company) but was told to take the road fees for over $22 never saw road fees and they were going to refill tank for $55 so I didnt have to do. So that was a unecessary cost for convience.

Wonderful food & drink, lovely pool, Gulf views.

Posted Mar 30, 2014
Pros: We have had good experiences staying at Holiday Inns and this one was exceptionally well run and the Gulf views were wonderful.
Cons: Allow guests free parking.
Location: Walk to Clearwater Beach, Pier 60, other restaurants and bars, and hop on the Jolly Trolley is an excellent bargain to get from here to there.
We had a wonderful check in person who was able to have us move to a Gulf View room the 2nd day of the stay plus she gave me good insight into my IHG rewards club membership. The staff in the restaurant and bars were friendly and fun and the maids did an excellent job of cleaning the room. Our maid would leave us an animal on the bed each day, put together from hand towels and wash cloth.
