Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Shamus27 Nice people, nice service, nice hotel!
We just wanted to say "thank you" for a great experience at your hotel. We visited Clearwater Beach to watch the beautiful sunset and we got that and more. The food and atmosphere at Jimmy's were wonderful and the service was excellent - especially Julie and Sydney. Your front desk employees were so professional and accommodating. We'll be back.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SassyRegina Fun Staff and Great Sunsets
My husband had work in Florida and I came for relaxation. It just happened to be our 28 year Anniversary as well. We had a blast! The staff were so friendly and fun and the sunsets were amazing. It had been many years since our last visit to Florida. We had forgotten what a wonderful state it truly is. we are already planning another trip.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Petdog Great Location for relaxation
Not on the main beach, has it own slice of semi private beach. Lots of shells at low tide and nice white powder sand to build a sand castle for children. Rooms and Pool clean, restaurant excellent. What more could you ask for? Sunsets and boat watching from pool deck is fun. Overall a great atmosphere to relax after business or while on vacation.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Hlezotte Not far from the beach
The hotel is what you would expect for a Holiday Inn. The location is NOT on the beach so you will need to walk a few blocks down to stick your toes in the sand. We had difficulties with the WIFI during our entire stay. It wouldn't connect, then if it would, it would kick us out right away. If you need WIFI, this is not the hotel for you. We heard other guests indicating the same issues.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Ripcord enjoyable and fun place to stay
We definitely enjoyed our stay. Not sure if it was a "good value" tho. We faced the ocean, but the hotel has no beach. Had to walk a couple of blocks to get to the public beach access. It also seems petty to charge guests for parking.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GreatViews Great Place, Terrific Value
I've stayed here off and on over the course of the spring and summer. The staff has always been cordial, helpful and efficient, and the front desk folks greet me by name. There is a Tiki bar poolside, and a very nicely equipped separate deck facing the Gulf which is perfect for sunbathing, watching the sunset, or relaxing to the nightly live music. The Holiday Inn is the best value on the beach when you consider the price and amenities. The hotel is located on Clearwater Beach which is a resort area. People come here to have fun which often results in some amount of noise. I am dismayed that there are people who are unaware of this global phenomenon. My one criticism is that there are not enough electrical outlets in the rooms. If you have more than two electrical items, you might want to consider bringing along a power strip.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by HOLIDAYBLUES2013 great place not so great people
I will start off with never GO HERE during hoilday weekend. the hotel it self was nice and clean. the front desk clerks was no help and rude. I called ahead to question if i need a parking pass for my guest i was told the lot was full and if I have not checked in I may not even have a spot to park. shocked due to I paid for parking with my room. Than when I asked was thee a near by parking lot where we should park in that case of no parking. i was told" i dont know maam thats not my job" . Once there i went to check in and was advised that my room wasn't booked for the window beach view, as I requested and due to holiday there was no more open rooms. after being told there was nothing i can do i was stuck in a room where im on roof top and have a view of maintenance cleaning the roof. after a long day of kids and beach we go inside to sleep its a party next door where the screaming at each after midnight.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Inspector1 Great people, great service, great food, thank you all!
First of all I am a professional property efficiency inspector for an international engineering sustainability company. I have a family of certified chefs. I travel daily and stay in 2 to 5 hotels every week. I eat in several Restuarants weekly. I have become very critical of the facilities, services and food as I live and work with professionals that provide top quality products and services at a reasonable cost with a smile. This hotel exhibited the behavior that I expect and rarely find!
Everyone went out of their way to help us with everything. Recommendations for dinner, pleasantly surprised with on site Jimmy's Fish House! Great service at the bar, Sean and Jay are a great team, taking care of all customers regardless of where they were!!! Great team work!!! Great food priced fair!!! Sean makes a great Cosmo martini, wife is happy, when mama's happy everyone's happy!!! Thank you Sean!!! Met the owner Jeff in the lounge, what a wonderfull person. He was sitting with friends and included us in their conversation as we watched the sunset! What a nice experience! Every employee we saw greeted us pleasantly every time!!! We can't wait to go back, planning next run so we can stay again! I have never said that about anyplace before!!! I really hope to find more places like this in my travels??? Thank you Jeff and your team for a great experience!!! You guys are a 10

The hotel is very nice and we enjoyed our stay. I am a Platinum member and this is the only hotel that has ever charged me to upgrade my room, the price went from $40 to $50 plus tax. I also thought it was odd to pay for parking in an unsecured parking lot.

From the welcome phone call to the free drinks provided to rewards members, my experience was wonderful. Even over the busy labor day weekend, I felt attended to. We also enjoyed the live music at Jimmy's and beach bars near the pool.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Pelch34 Really pay to be at the beach...Bush League?
Trust me, I have been a loyal customer of the IHG partners for awhile and since I have Platinum status I have never paid for parking until I stayed with this establishment. When I ask to have that comped I was told "it was impossible as it was beach parking." I wasn't going to make a big deal as it was $12 whole dollars, but my response was "I've stayed at locations on beaches and on rivers and other various desitnations". My point being that I already pay a higher price to stay at a location like this and that is understandable I know that going in to it. But as a loyal, weekly traveling member of your progam, there should be some perks. For this stay I got nothing, there was no water bottle or snacks, no free newspaper at my door. I paid for one of the most expensive rooms there, and you still charge me $12 to park my car...BUSH LEAGUE. Needless to say it only takes one sub standard experience to make a customer look elsewhere...guess what, I won't be back to your place and I will be looking at other businees for my weekly travel. Again, it's not the money, it's being treated as though you are respected for your loyalty.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Exnewyorke37 Overall good stay
We stayed at the property while we were in the process of moving out of state. The property was wonderful we were upgraded to a suite and had a nice view. The restaurant was wonderful we barely left the property. We got a second room for the rest of the family. We were somewhat disappointed in that they authorized a debit card rather then charge it like we asked. We also had a visitor to the room and we were told that it is common in Florida. We were room changed to another room and were compensated parking for one room only. I am also a priority club member as well. Overall the property was nice and we will be back possibly.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jeanne129 Spectacular location and service
I highly recommend this location. Our room overlooked the Gulf where we watched schools of stingrays and saw nice fish from our 3rd floor balcony. The room had small kitchenette. The beach along with everything you want to do is within walking distance. With the boaters pulling up to the places that had beachfront, you are better off at this hotel only having a seawall and walking to the spectacular beach. All of the staff was really good including the cleaning staff. The pool and pool bar area was roomy and plenty of chairs both around the pool and overlooking the Gulf. The restaurant had pretty good food. You did not have to leave the resort if you did not want to and would still have a great time. I can't wait to go back.

Really enjoyed the stay at the Clearwater Holiday Inn. The entire facility was immaculate. The fitness center was very nice and the pool area was very accomodating with plenty of seating. We weren't in the room much as we stayed out by the pool and the Tiki bar. What we saw of the room was great. It had a MW/Fridge/ and sink area like a Wet Bar. Also had silverware, plates and glasses which are much better than the styrofoam and plastic normally available. We had a nice balcony and were able to see the nite sights and people walking, skating and running. This hotel is in a great location as you have access to the boardwalk, many restaraunts and the beach. The only issues we had were no continental breakfast that we were aware of and no safe in the room. If we are on a working vacation a sfe in the room is a must and could be a deal breaker in the future as security of laptops and personal/company info is a must. Really enjoyed the stay.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by pherlopolus WOW!
As a regular user of UK Holiday Inn hotels due to business, it's always nice to use them for pleasure. And what a pleasure it was!
The Hotel is in the best location I have ever stayed at, literally on clearwater beach, with a deck overlooking the sea/bay that you can either sunbathe on by the pool or eat at from the restaurant.
On arrival (and having used reward points to book) we were upgraded to a suite which was amazing! The food in the hotel was fantastic and we honestly wished we had booked a week instead of 2 nights!
Altogether a really excellent stay, thank you very much!

This hotel is right on the gulf but with no beach area. We were aware of this prior to our trip though. We had a one bedroom suite which had 2 rooms...one with 2 double beds and the other with a small kitchen area, pull out couch and table and chairs. Perfect for a small family although the pull out couch was anything but comfortable and looked like it was in need of replacement. There were days where we had no linen service all day and they would come at 5pm while we were getting ready for dinner. Told them to come back and they never did. Staff as a whole was not very friendly at all. You could walk by them 100 times in the lobby or the halls and you never got a hello out of anybody that worked there. Wake up call didnt work and didnt find out that it doesnt until the next morning when the front desk told me if I wanted it I had to call them directly the night before and not use the service available on the phone. Now onto the positive...the pool was great, kept clean and they had a kiddie pool for the younger kids as well. Was never overcrowded and we never had a problem getting a lounge chair. Sunsets from this hotel were beautiful! It is a short walk to stores and Clearwater's public beach which was clean and beautiful! We ate many meals at Jimmy's and the food and drinks were always great. Service there was great as well. Although the hotel was about a mile walk to Pier 60 for $6 you can get a shuttle for your whole family and the shuttle drivers have personality. All in all this was our first trip to the gulf side of Florida and we loved Clearwater Beach.

The hotels location is great for the beach. The rooms are nice, clean and comfortable. We went to Shephard's seafood restaurant and tiki bar which are located next door to the property. Awesome food. The breakfast was awesome as we sat out overlooking the water. Made me feel like I was a cruise. Great spot. I will return.
