My annual October trip to the Holiday Inn Harborside this year was fabulous. The staff are a delight to be around, from the front desk, to the room cleaners, and the outlet personnel. Special thanks for great service to Nick, Bryan and Vera, who make my visits special every time. See you next year, maybe twice!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Silvia42 An excellent experience
I can definitely recommend Clearwater S Harbourside Holiday Inn. The room and comfort, the cleanliness, the staff and the restaurant are all there to please you. The first year I stayed with a friend for my birthday in a regular room with two beds.. The second and third year we went to a suite as there were three of us. There is something about this Holiday Inn that makes you relax and enjoy yourself. There is one thing I wish it would do, however, and that is I wish they would heat the pool since my birthday is in October and it does get cold.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Barbeau4 Great Service and Beautiful Location
I am pleased to review this hotel as I was thrilled with the service from the moment I confirmed my reservation. Charles answered the phone and was so courteous and helpful when I called to discuss my reservation prior to arrival. When we arrived, he had everything in place perfectly and the room exceeded my expectations. My family had a wonderful time during our stay and I look forward to returning to the hotel in the near future. Thank you Charles for all of your help! The other staff members were also friendly, helpful, and accommodating. The room was clean, spacious, and comfortable and the view was perfect. The restaurant and bar were great and the service was on point. In addition, our children loved the pool, mini-golf, and game room. As you can tell, I was really happy with this hotel. What a great experience! Kudos to all.

We were very surprised when we walked in the door and saw a flight of stairs! On the second floor was a king size bed, huge bathroom, jacuzzi, and a wonderful loft feeling with a big opening to look down and out! The suite was simply lovely! Thank you holiday inn! The staff was informative and friendly too!

Overall our stay was fine. The bed was squeaky and seemed to tilt to the middle. A couple of things did bother me: one was the smell on the way to the pool - smelled like sewage but I know it was the backwater from the bay. The other thing was a $0.25 cost for a cup of ice at the pool bar. Let's face it I was buying $8 drinks so when I needed more ice a $0.25 charge is ridiculous. The front staff was nice, we had a good meal and a good stay but we probably would not go back.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Local727 Nice Stay - Checkin not so good
Staff was rude at time of check in. I made my reservation several months in advance and was confirmed at a certain rate. Once I arrived the room had increased in price and staff got rude while I was trying to explain and find the reservation confirmation on my email. Another associate started to get involved, but was really just being nosy and didn't provide any more help or support. Once I was able to locate the reservation amount the staff didn't even want to look at my phone. She told me I would need to print it out for a manager. Wow! Very out of line and combative... Check in took about 45 min to an hour. I did finally receive the correct rate, but I truly believe I was supposed to be in a different room. The rest of my stay was good.

What an amazing resort! We are local residents and had never been to this resort. The staff is super friendly. Or room was amazing. Clean, spacious, and a gorgeous view. A short 2-block walk to the beach and several restaurants. We would recommend this resort to anyone looking for an awesome Florida vacation.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by steve34609 A resort,not just a hotel!
We just returned from a mini-vacation at this hotel. As Platinum members we were offered a free upgrade to a villa. Imagine our surprise and pleasure! The villa was a HUGE two story affair with a full kitchen,granite counters,new appliances,a balcony on the intra-coastal waterway and two flatscreen TVs. The master is situated upstairs while the large foldout is downstairs. Privacy for Mom and Dad! There is a full dining set, furniture group, desk and chair and on the balcony there is patio furniture outside. There is also a Jacuzzi in the bath as well as a huge walk-in shower. The hotel, which is really a resort, has a marina on the property as well as a gift shop, mini golf, a full service restaurant that offers room service, two pools, a tiki bar and sand volleyball. Now, I'm sure I missed many of the other amenities but I also noticed a large conference center and secure underground parking. This hotel is NOT situated directly on the beach but it's only a short walk using those sticks that protrude from your rear that God gave you. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit. Nick waited on us at the tiki hut and Sam brought us my birthday dinner.

My husband and I stayed at this hotel Friday and Saturday nights, to attend a meeting hosted there. Friday was uneventful, but Saturday afternoon, a group moved in next door with a number of children. These children screamed nonstop, proceeded to move furniture, and throw items against the walls. Our room was nonsmoking, but this adjoining room was not, and the smell wafted through the connecting door. At about 4 p.m., I called down to the front desk to complain, and was told a clerk would let these guests know there had been a noise complaint filed. We proceeded to get dressed and ready for a banquet at 7 p.m. At 5:30, there was still no letup of the noise, so my husband called downstairs, to be told we could moved to a different room, if we liked. We were dressed for the event, but had to find a cart and move all of our luggage to another floor.
Upon arrival, as we had signed a sheet detailing the noise restrictions, we thought the offending party would be moved, rather than the quiet folks who had been in the room for one night already!
We let the meeting organizers know how upset we were. Until the following morning when we checked out (and repeated our story to the new clerk), NO ONE even bothered to apologize. We were treated like the offending party.
The room was clean, the cleaning staff friendly, and the meeting
rooms adequate, but the front desk clerks soured the entire experience. Upon leaving, we were assured that we'd be getting
a follow-up phone call from "Teresa" on Tuesday. No one called.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by eglfan nice place, great staff.
we stay here at least once a year for last 16 years. the only problem, which is a big one for us, the hotel guest parking is poor. anyone can park in the garage. you get a parking pass, but parking is not enforced. I am disabled, and many times I am forced to park in the main lot, which is about 100 yards away from hotel. people are allowed to park in the disabled access area next to the parking space. this problem has been brought to office staff, and nothing is done about it other than lip service. I recommend this hotel, but don't expect to get a garage parking spot on the weekend.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Kristi22 Not so good
The hotel is not nearly as nice as I thought it would be. Carpet and bathroom was dirty, mattress was hard and uncomfortable. We were kept up all night, literally until 2:00 in the morning by loud partying going on at the bar. We called and complained at 1:00am, but the hotel staff did nothing to quiet down the drunks outside our room. I expected a much nicer stay for the money, this hotel's rates are way above what it's worth. There is no hot tub, the food at the restaurant is over priced, and the live music was horrible. We will never stay at this hotel again, probably not at another Holiday Inn at all. Nothing fun to do anywhere near this place, just the beach a couple blocks away. The little putt-putt course in the center of the hotel is pretty lame.

My stay was Labor Day weekend. The room was clean, appeared recently redecorated and was very comfortable. My experience was excellent from the moment I arrived. The front desk staff members were cordial and pleasant. The restaurant and bar staff were excellent. The food on the property was good and there are also multiple restaurants within walking distance. In my opinion the hotel, restaurant and bar are all managed very well. I would recommend this property and would stay again.

This is a lovely property w/ clean, decent rooms. We loved the loft layout! My only complaint would be the cleaning service knocking on the door at 9:15 am! After being out late, that is NOT how I want to be awakened. Breakfast at the facility was very nice, and even though I wasn't too impressed with dinner fare, the service was great!

Room- the lighting was really strange- had a light that didnt light up room well and was a strange tint...
The room was also very humid and there was no de-humidifier in place to counteract this.
Property- There was no where to accommodate a group of 10 people to play board games... asked front office if there was a conference room available at approximately 9PM and they said that it has to be reserved ahead of time, when there was no one using the room for anything at that time.

I had an excellent hotel stay for two nights at holiday inn harbour side. The hotel is close to many local restuarnts and bars. Walk across street to beach. I stayed in a suite on intercoastal side with wonderful views. the only thing I would have to complain about was the overzealous security guard that kept harassing my 80 yr grandmothers because they brought two wine coolers down from the room, but told us we could buy their 10 dollar drinks from their bar.

We love this hotel! We were pleasantly surprised to be upgraded to a spacious suite with a beautiful view of the marina. The pool is amazing. We came here several years ago when our kids were little and they loved the ship and waterfalls at the children's end of the pool. Now that our kids are grown, we're able to relax and enjoy sipping frozen tropical drinks poolside. This place has something for everyone! You can't beat the location. The beach and lots of really good restaurants are very close by. We plan on coming back every year!

Staff at this hotel are rude and disrespectful, especially the night crew. Not sure if they hate their jobs or what - but they are rude and are quick to let you know who's in charge.
We will NEVER stay here again, and will NOT recommend anyone stay here.
