Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Hamconnie Problem with key.
Had go to the front desk x5. Key would work one time, then you were unable to get into the room. The last time went to the beach and left key at front desk--sooooo the excuse that I left next to credit cards is nil.
Love this hotel and would definitely stay again.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by nybelow A yes and no recommendation
We came down to the area for a Sunday wedding. Drove 9 hours to get there and were put in a room opposite the bar. The family in the room next to us were very loud with a screaming child and yelling adults until 11 pm. The music in the outside bar ended at 10 but the very loud conversations in the inside bar resonated into our room directly opposite the bar. This lasted until midnight while we were trying to sleep at 9 after the 9 hour drive. Breakfast the next morning was excellent and the wedding put on by the hotel was good as well.
Hope your experience is better.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by ServerGuru Hard to give this one a good recomendation
So we went to Florida for a week long vacation and to get together with a lot of friends for a get together at this hotel.. I like the hotel overall.. the one thing i cant get over is the severe problem with the internet during our stay.. We were there for 5 days.. Internet worked on day 1 and that was it. I saw little effort from the 3rd party who does their internet, and low effort from the hotel to get it fixed.. wouldn't even come check the access point . No other rooms available, and nothing to help alleviate the problem. There are no hard wire jacks in the hotel for a backup. If you like your internet service don't stay here..

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Candymarie73737 Wedding Stay
We stayed there the first weekend of June for a wedding. For unpleased with the experience.
1. The bed and pillow were so uncomfortable. I woke up both mornings with neck and head pain.
2. There was a joining door to the room we stayed in which the neighbors continued to bang on throughout the night till morning.
3. My husband was attacked violently at the wedding which the cops were called the property. The hotel did nothing to check on their guests that were affected by this violent event. They also have given us a complete run around about the security cameras. I have gotten different answers from "different people supposedly in charge" and have yet to have this issue resolved.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MichiganBridesMom Wedding Event - Could not have been nicer
I cannot begin to note how wonderful the staff was during our recent visit. My daughter was married in Clearwater and we had an evening party at the hotel that night. From the first contact with Elizabeth at the hotel we were treated beautifully. Ronnie the room coordinator, Nick the bartender and all the wait staff could not have been nicer. The rooms were clean, well maintained and very comfortable. The food is outstanding and the property is fabulous. The children loved the pools and mini-golf and the adults liked the Tiki bar! We will be coming back to the facility for short stays and longer ones!!! This is a great hotel with a great staff.

Great place to enjoy and relax. Only problem was that too many locals (non guest) were at the pool and voleyball courts. I pay to play so should they!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Jim4198 Unfortunate Experience
Beautiful property, wonderful service at the restaurant but the hotel staff was the biggest disappointment I've had at a Holiday Inn. They advertise special down pillows "just call and we'll bring them right up" Well we called, 3 hours later when it was bed time we called again got them in 20 minutes. Maid service was sad, she made the bed, that was it, didn't even leave us bath towels, dirty dishes left in the sink, etc. When we called down to the desk for towels we where told they would bring some right up... 2 hours later I went down to the desk to get them. We will continue to stay at Holiday Inn's but would recommend you stay at the Clearwater Beach Holiday Inn just uo the road, much better service

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 2cannons Another great visit to IRB Holiday Inn
We just had our 3rd great visit to the Indian Rocks Beach Holiday Inn. We stay in the waterfront suites, which are very large. They are a little dated (could use some new carpet and appliances), but everything works and the units are very large with a full kitchen, clean, and comfortable. The restaurant has indoor and outdoor seating, and the 3 bars have an extended happy hour. The food is good, and there is a varied menu. Both pools and the exercise room are well maintained. Staff (especially Charles) is friendly and helpful. No free breakfast here. The Key West look and atmosphere are unique. Looking forward to our next visit.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GaryF Great place to relax
Just had a short getaway and this was the perfect place to relax. We had a nice suite overlooking the marina. Food and entertainment was great at Jimmy Guana's restaurant onsite. And you can walk to a number of other places within a few blocks. The beach is just two blocks away. Even played miniature golf in the breezeway between the buildings. A few miles to the south is Johns Pass, and to the north is Clearwater Beach. Great location.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Krsz Facility is clean and well up kept- great location
The internal common areas, pool, mini golf, werer always clean or being cleaned. Food was good, live music, and good envoirnment. There was a good mix of families and couples staying at hotel. The locationw as central to the things were wanted to do, and a CVS, and two restaurants were in walking distance. I liked the set back location in conjunction to the main street.
The room was spacious, and the House keeping staff was great. making us different "towel" animals each day we collected them on the spare bed, making a small "party" The room was clean very well each day while we were away. Kudos to them.
ok the not so good.
Our room had a few issues, the AC didnt work the 1st night, but we decided to let the desk know the next morning as we departed for day trip. When we returned the prompt engineers had fixed/ replace the unit quickly.
There was a leak ABOVE the toilet, but was A/C condensor line.
Our 1st night there was no hot water, so the engineer turned on the sinks, tubs in the adjecent rooms to draw the hot water over.
These are all no big deal, but want to share because they do happen. BUT, the staff & engineers were prompt and efficent to resolve them- thats good staff and response that should be mentioned.

We enjoyed our visit. This is a terrific location. We had a harbor view room. The housekeeping staff is exceptional. We had a minor electrical problem which was taken care of immediately.
I have a few criticisms. First, our room was not accessible by elevator & we had to carry our bags up a flight of stairs. When the desk attendant told us, he didn't offer any assistance with our luggage.
I don't understand why non-guests are permitted to use the pool. While there are plenty of chairs, there were lots more children than were staying in the hotel.
Finally the wifi is dreadful!!!

We were here for our niece's wedding. Had a wonderful time, your facility is very well kept, very clean, we loved the pool and the area around the band & stage. We used the Johnny Guana restaurant for breakfast only, the food was ok, a little high priced.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Delicia17 Wonderful Hotel with a beautiful view
I loved this Holiday Inn Property. Due to a conference, we stayed on the first floor that did not face the Marina. However it was still beautiful and pleasant. The pools were wonderful There is a larger pool with a waterfalls and little slide for babies. It was warm and lovely. There is another pool that has a hot tub that fewer children use. The room was lovely. The staff were professional and helpful. The walkway in the hotel has a little putt-putt course. The hotel is situated by the Marina if you love boats. I love boats. You can rent a boat right from the property. The restaurant on the deck features nightly music. It was such a wonderful place. I would definitely recommend it and go back again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by John248 Awesome place
Great place, suites are very large and clean, staff was great from checking in all the way till we checked out. Pool was great for the kids and they loved the minature golf. Beach is a couple blocks but being right on the marina with all the boats was very cool, we even rented a boat right at the hotel!!!! They had a band playing every night, lots of people having fun.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by thumbelinah Neat place, large rooms
The place had a nice feel to it, with large spacious rooms (we had a suite with kitchen) and a miniature golf course in the middle. We did not go to the pool, but it was very large and had a cute pirate ship for the kids. We did not eat at the restaurant, but there was live music playing and the bar was busy until late in the night. The "supply store" wasn't really much of a store- just souvenirs mostly, even though it advertised drinks and groceries- the only place to get food was the restaurant and drinks from the bar or vending machines. They do rent boats onsite also. Overall the place had a nice tropical feel to it and was a perfect getaway place.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 50anniversary Happy we chose this place
We had a reception here and were very pleased.
The staff was helpful to our needs, there was an issue with the AC, and they got someone on it right away to get it fixed.
The rooms were nice and clean. The location and layout is pretty.
I liked that you could have a party, go to the outside bar for drinks and music, not have to drive to your room, just a short walk from the beach, and breakfast in the AM, all in one spot.
I was very happy we chose this place.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by samme781 Over the top customer service!
We flew into orlando and took our time driving down to Indian Rocks knowing our room was alreay reserved. Upon arriving around 715pm, we went to the front desk to check in. We were greeted warmly and with smiles. We were told the hotel was completely booked and they had our reservation but they were told to give me what is available. We booked a king size room and were given a 1200 sq ft villa with king size bed, full kitchen, dining room, living room, jacuzzi tub and private patio. We were blown away by this room and the customer service given too us. We have never had this happen to us and we have never been treated so kindly at a hotel. It was my boyfriends first trip to florida and it is one he will never forget. Thanks for making it even better!

The service was great, the room was beautiful and clean, the bed was comfortable and the view of the marina was wonderful. The bar and restaurant were very convenient and the shrimp by the pound was one of our favorite treats. Walking distance to the beach was very nice. We enjoyed every minute of our stay and are already trying to figure out when we can go back.

We stayed in a King room from 4/6/13 to 4/12/13. The room has everthing you need for a comfortable vacation. Check-in & out was very easy & pleasant. The housekeeping is impeccable! Very clean Hotel. Jimmy Iquana's is a nice casual restaurant and the food is good. We had a great server every morning whose name is Deavon and she was an absolute sweetheart. Nick, the bartender at the Pool bar, was very friendly. Overall, a 5 star vacation resort .Also, very children friendly. My husband and I cannot wait to come back again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Carl52 Pool guard
On the first full day of our visit, we walked to the pool area, from room 317. I have a foot problem and walking is an issue. We filled a cooler with some beer, water, and soda. When we got to the pool area, I noticed the "no carry in" sign. I didn't want to walk all the way back to the room, so I put the cooler under my chair and sat down while my son enjoyed the pool. The pool security guy came by asking what I had in the cooler. I explained the situation, and told him I would purchase any drinks from the Tiki bar. I went to the bar, ordered a drink, along with something for my wife, and everything seemed fine. The drinks were good, and we ordered a couple more. Then we noticed the people sitting right next to us were drinking bottled beer from their own cooler. "Oh well", I told my wife. Later on, the pool security guy came back to "make sure my cooler was still full". I told him it was, and I was running a tab at the bar. He walked right by the people drinking bottles of beer from there own cooler. I am wondering if this was a racial incident?

I brought customers to this hotel when we were in the area on business. The staff was very accommodating and seemed to appreciate our business. The rooms were updated and clean.
It was nice to be able to relax and listen to music at the bar after working a long day. The town of Indian Rocks and the Beach were both very nice and only a short walk away.
Nice hotel. I will go back.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BillGJr Great place to stay during our son's wedding celebration.
On saturday April 6th our son was married at the FL Botanical Gardens located on Ulmerton Avenue. It was within 5 minutes of the Holiday Inn which served as a great location for our families to gather both before and after the wedding. Everyone had a tremendous time as we traveled from room to room celebrating this special occasion. It left us with many great memories and plans to return at a future date. I would highly recommend this facilities based on our 4 day experience.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by palhu Get the large room
We shared a suite with friends. We brought our Seniors in High School for spring break. We had the smaller room which was clean and suited our needs adjoined to our friends who had an upstairs and large kitchen/dining area with a balcony. We hosted 9 teenagers and it worked out great. The beach was just over a block away. The kids had fun and the parents relaxed. There is a mini golf in the center of the complex, but we didn't access it. It was a bit pricey. It was reasonably priced. Free coffee and newspapers for guests.

We had a lovely two story suite with private balcony facing the harbor. Full kitchen, loved jucuzzi hot tub in room. Enjoyed both pools and was an easy walk to the beach on the gulf.
Staff could have been friendlier, were not the most welcoming and friendly we had on our vacation. Not rude really just not very engaging.
The in room wifi wasn't working which was inconvient as I had to go to the front desk area to use their one customer computer.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mike1964 Proud to be a Priority Gold Member
When we checked into hotel after a long drive, we were treated like royalty and recognized right away as Priority Gold Members, from the moment we checked in, we were personally acknowledged by staff and were accomodated above and beyond.....we waited in line behind one couple that was checking in their rooms, and I thought the staff was awesome in their customer service skills...as soon as I stepped up to the counter, I was just awed at the way the staff expedited our check in and aslo inquired if there was anything more that we needed once we got settled in. Way above and beyond compared to other HI properties that I have stayed at for sure. Can't say enough.....will be back there on my next pass through Clearwater/Indian Rocks Beach!!!
