Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Lindalou16 Love staying at the Holiday Inn Clearwater
Recently spent a few days here with my husband and had a wonderful time. I have been coming to Clearwater over Mothers Day with my parents and five grown sisters for many years. Stay here every year and have never been disappointed! Always a fun and relaxing time. The staff are great and the beds are so comfortable!

The hotel is nice, the staff great and the food good. The only issue is the pricing to be honest. Last year I had the occassion to stay here and at two other area hotels. The pricing here is much higher than the other two without any real additional ammenities.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by JACK68 Noisey and poor restaurant/front desk staff very helpful
Our total hotel experience was mediocre, our room on the fifth floor (502) was over a large air condition unit on the roof two floors below and was very noisey. We could hear any movement in the hall outside the room. The cleaning staff were polite and efficient. We only ate in the restaurant once for breakfast. It is avertised that the buffet is open at 8 AM , we were there at 8:15 and none of the hot items were out . My wife had to wait for the staff to set it up. I ordered off the menu, hash and poched eggs . It took ten or fifteen minutes even though there was only one other couple being served. When I got my meal the poched eggs were over cooked, completely hard . The weather, I know that you can't do anything about that, was cold and maybe infuenced our overall experience.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Citizen great experience at holiday inn clearwater beach
Stayed a week at this location. Everything was perfect as location, service, courteous staff, sunsets, good food at fair prices, good water side entertainment. I would highly rate this location for anyone looking for a great vacation on clearwater beach.

Great time during our sales meeting, even though the weather was less than stellar for Florida, it was still better than the 32 degree weather back home.
One word of advice, though, take a power strip with you. There was a serious lack of power outlets that the modern traveler needs.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Emily2 "Suite" stay
Great views... great pool.. great bars... and Jimmy's is a great place to eat right on the water. I reserved the Queen suite and was a little taken back that it was actually just two hotel rooms adjoined by a door - one had a couch, dining table, and kitchenette and the other room was a standard hotel room with the 2 queen beds. It did separate our group at times but I did like that this layout gave us two bathrooms. Overall it's a great place to stay. Within walking distance of Pier 60 - not to mention right next door to famous bar/club Shephard's if you're down to party!

We enjoyed our stay and found your service wonderful. We will definately return for a longer stay.
However, I would appreciate enhanced coverage of cable TV to include buisness channels, and a more powerful Wi-Fi system. Your router strength varied greatly for most of the week.

Breakfast and dinner at Jimmy's Fish House overlooking the water is a must - great food, great value and a beautiful view especially at sunset.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Acey2000 “Nice Property, Terrible Guest Service, ZERO recognition for Platinum PC Members”
Check in at hotel was uneventful. Was not offered any upgrade based on my Platinum PC status. Got to room 700, it has to be the smallest king bed room in hotel. There was barely space to turn around, much less store any luggage. After unpacking my bags, I entered the bathroom to find it only contained a stand-alone shower and no tub. I was traveling with my 3 year old, and he HATES showers.
Carpet in the elevators is beaten and filthy, stinks like old beer.
Tried to take a nap in the late afternoon, but the large generator outside and below the room kept starting up, running for 30 minutes and shutting down.
Jimmy’s bar would not honor the Priority Club free drink coupon that I was given to get a carryout milk or juice for my son because the coupon says “good for one well mixed drink, domestic beer, or house wine.”
In the evening, I checked rooms still available for purchase on the Holiday Inn website. It appeared all room types were available. I went to the front desk to ask why I was not offered an upgrade, about the generator, and why I was not advised the room only contained a shower. The clerk indicated that I should have been upgraded to a suite and could switch rooms if I so desired. (not so much at 9pm)
My research also showed the hotel also had unsold rooms the night before my check in, and could have given me an upgraded room at my check in time because they were not used the night before.
Room service from Jimmy’s was more than an adventure. It took 5 calls and 5 trips for them to get the order correct. I was also told by the order taker that they did not know the room service menu, so the problems I had with my order were not her fault.
Maids beat on the door 2 times in the morning prior to 10am and demanded to know what time I was checking out.
At checkout, I asked to speak to the manager. The guy came out with a smug attitude. He then told me an outright lie and claimed the hotel was “sold out” of the rooms that they offer for upgrade. He then said, “if you would have paid more, you could have had an upgrade.”
Also blamed the poor room service on Jimmy’s, and since that is not part of the hotel, to take my problem up with them. It took arm twisting, but finally got him to agree that as a Platinum PC member, (already with 18 nights stayed this year) I received no added service or benefit at their property.
When asked why the maids were beating on the door at 10am, he replied “you did not ask for a late checkout”. I politely reminded him that I do not need to ask for a late checkout to stay until the 11am checkout time.
I stayed at this property 2 years ago and have not returned in that amount of time because this was the same sort of service provided during my last visit. I really wanted an enjoyable trip to the beach with my son, so I gave the property another try. Very disappointed to see that attitudes at the property have not improved at all.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by sauerspe OK, but without the noice would be better
I asked for a quiet room, I received a room with a noise making device right next to our window on the outside of the building.
There is nothing more to say about that.

You will not be disappointed in your stay here. We have returned to Holiday Inn in Clearwater Beach yearly for our spring trip. Easy access to everything and able to walk most places. Staff is more than helpful and friendly. Definitely give this place a 5-Star Rating.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Roxy2013 Location + Great property = Perfect get away
It may appear I overused Excellent in my ratings but that is exactly how I felt about my weekend at the Holiday Inn in Clearwater Beach. The food and drinks were so good we ended up just staying at the hotel for our last night.
Right on the water and walkable to the beach without crossing Gulfview. AND, the night clubs at Shepards are right next door.
This will be my hotel for all my visits to Clearwater from now on.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by CindyD366 Wonderful Views from 5th floor balcony
Walked in with no reservations (priority club members) and had no problem getting a room for 2 nights. Front desk was VERY nice and helpful...and I was recognized as a "special guest" .
WE also enjoyed the pool, bars, and restaurants in the hotel . All were very good. Our room could have been a little better. Some of the furniture and bedding was a bit beat up..and needs to be replaced but the view was just awesome... Would stay there again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by CindyDee366 Front Desk was great View from room awesome!!
Checking in with no reservations was easy. We got the room that we wanted with no problems. He went out of his way to make sure we were happy with it and recognized us as Priority Members which I like. Housekeeping was also very helpful by leaving us fresh towels even thou we were only there for 2 days and didnt really need them.
The view from our balcony was just awesome. The room itself was a little beat-up and could use a face-lift but all is all it was nice.

My wife and I stay at Holiday Inns quite frequently. We have however never vacationed in Clearwater Beach before.
We are Platinum members and as a result, our room was upgraded to a suite. The overall experience was great from beginning to end. The room was sensational, the staff was wonderful, the lunch overlooking the Gulf of Mexico fantastic, all and all just a fabulous experience.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Donnam0011 overpriced
its a nice hotel, but i think its a little bit over priced, also had to pay 12.00 parking fee for my car, whats up with that, where else am i suppose to do with it, if its not left in the parking lot !!! The woman at the front desk was not very friendly, and acted like she could care less if i stayed thier or not ! as far as food thier is one resturant and from the menue it was overpriced so we went out somewhere else and ate. overall would not stay thier again. also i thought it was suppose to be beach access in back where the pool is all i saw was rocks no where to get on the beach.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by thevantrapps Great Stay
Spectactular stay! We were upgraded as Priority Club Members to a SPECTACULAR Ocean view. We watched a parade of boats go out to sea on Sunday morning! THe beach was just a hop, skip and a jump from the hotel and the pool was clean and warm. We ate at the restaurant twice an enjoyed a family friendly and TALENTED band on Sat. night (crowd was not as family friendly!LOL) They let my daughter play the tambourines for several songs. Since we are Priority club, they let us have a late check out which helped my daughter rest a bit before the recital. Bed was comfy, bathrooms updated and AMAZING! They even had cucumber water in the lobby...my favorite!!! We will be back on a monthly basis for lessons and plan to stay here. My only complaint was that I read Priority member didn't have to pay for parking and we were charged anyway. That kind of stinks because it's not like the lot was even full.

We use the Holiday Inn Clearwater Suites for all our groups to Clearwater. This was my first time personally staying at this hotel and I can't say enough about it! It's not your typical Holiday Inn. The rooms are clean and spacious! The hotel staff is amazing. They are there for all of your needs and never make you feel like you are a bother! Jimmy's Fish House is a great place. Food is reasonably priced and service was excellent. Make sure you look for Sammy & Mike behind the bar while you are there! Pool is really nice & also has a tiki bar!
Hotel is in a great location on Clearwater Beach. I would highly recommend this property and look forward to staying there again!!!

We came down to cheer for our football team and attend the Outback Bowl. We stayed at this location 12 years ago during our last trip to the Outback Bowl and had a great time also. Jimmy's Fish House is great. We watched the sunset from there a couple of times. The hotel staff was excellent from the front desk folks to the maids.The rooms were terrific. We enjoyed the pool area and the New Years Eve fireworks show. Our South Carolina Gamecocks defeated Michigan in the Outback Bowl in a thrilling football game on New Years day. Thanks for a great time in Florida!

Enroute to Clearwater Beach, we decided to stay at the Holiday Inn. Amazing beautiful place right by the beach. We had a great time in the outside pool with the pool bar serving pina coladas. Rooms very big and beds were comfortable. If we are in the area again, we willl definitely be staying here.
