Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Kirk160 Commendable Staff
The staff went above and beyond what you would expect in order to insure we had a wonderful stay! They were very accommodating, and recommended a fantastic local restaurant "Babbo's" for drinks & dining. As a traveling disabled veteran, this has been one of the more enjoyable stays, because of the thoughtful staff!

My mom's house was being tented for termites, so we booked the room for her. She enjoyed using the pool. but she did have some difficulty operating the TV and the eggs with salsa were bland. We have stayed at this location several times usually because of home maintenance issues and have always had good stays.

Facility is close to most schools on the west coast (Pinellas, Pasco, and Hillsborough Counties), with connecting routes available. Internet kept me in touch with my office as well as customers to set appointments. Use of the in room refrigerator and microwave made snacks, lunches and dinners economical.
Was not able to sell ice to Eskimo'!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jill62 Loved our stay at Holiday Inn Express - Clearwater
When we booked this on-line I figured it would be a "normal' motel room. We were really impressed with our room. Very clean, bed was very comfortable. Bathroom with the huge shower was a real surprise. Really liked that we had 2 sinks. We shared our room with our daughter, son-in-law and grandson. They stayed in the living rm area. They were not impressed with the sofa bed so ended up putting the mattress on the floor. They said their was a bar in the middle of the bed that made in very uncomfortable.
The hot breakfast was very impressive, lots of variety and it opened up early enough that we got to eat before we had to be at the airport very early on Monday. Nice touch was the cookies and popcorn in the lobby in the late afternoon/ early evening.
Pool looked nice but we didn't have a chance to use it.
Hotel staff was very friendly.
Cons: Like I said the sofa bed was uncomfortable. Also the shower didn't have a lot of force, I like a lot of water coming out when I take my shower.
Overall - very happy with our stay and if we ever have to stay in Clearwater we will book a room again. Thank you for a good experience in Clearwater.

This is just about the only property I will stay at when I'm in town. It is conveniently located, and the staff is always exemplary..... can't recommend this property highly enough.

This is a great hotel for families. We were greeted with a warm smile and cookies when we arrived. Our room was spacious and clean. The fitness center surpassed most hotel fitness centers. In addition to new cardio equipment, there was a great selection of free weights. The free breakfast was tasty. The decor of the hotel itself is very attractive. If you're in the Tampa/St. Pete area, I highly recommend this hotel. It's convenient to everything!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Lina M Front Desk
I am so sorry to say that I did not have a good experience. One of the ladies at the front desk was kind of annoyed and in a very bad mood when I asked a simple question. When I called her back, she was really disrespectful. My first room had the black out was broken and didn't close and the room floor was dirty and smell bad. I had to change it for another one. The girl who helped with that was very nice though. I had to take a shower quick bc I was late for my event and there was no water. When the water came back and I flushed the toilet, it spilled water all over me. That, I understand, things happen, but dirty floors and this really, maybe tired person at the front desk is not something really nice. There are lots of other places to stay.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by ClaudetteD Breakfast
The food was ok. However, the staff member working both mornings my family and I went to breafast was horrible!
She didnt smile once except when I saw her right outside the door speaking to another staff member. She seems she didnt like her job and was miserable there. Barely said excuse when she was passing through the kitchen with refills and there was a line of guests.
Turn the juice machine off at exactly 9am even when there was a line of guest waiting.
I truly think she is miserable there and was NOT at professional and need to find a new job. Someone as such should not be working with the public on in a hotel environment!

After traveling to various countries and staying in a number of hotels during the last two months, this hotel was the BEST so far. I enjoyed everything from check in, the room, comfort of the room, to the great breakfast daily! I will definitely used Holiday Inn Express again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by peter2300 convenient stay and pretty comfortable.
i travel to clearwater every couple of months for some studies. I have stayed at this Holiday Inn Express every single time. I feel that I get a great deal for the rates that they charge. the staff are excellent and willing to please. They also have a great shuttle service which saves me on renting a car.
the breakfast is always well organized and the place is always clean.
They started their new renovations and the place looks brand new again.
thanks for all your help when I am there.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ADTPete Staff is like visiting Grandma's House
The staff cared about my stay as much as I did, and although a few problems emerged, they were on top of them so quickly you forget they even happened.
The rooms are quiet so you dont hear what happens next door, which leads to a peaceful night's sleep. The showers are the most amazing space I have EVER seen in a hotel.. THEY ARE A MUST SEE.

It is a nice hotel. The lobby is a little dated but very clean. The staff was very friendly and my room was clean and comfortable. I happened to be there when there were a lot of teenagers staying there for a sporting event so it was a little noisy but that was not the staff's fault. I would stay here again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by bluedat2 Nice hotel...friendly staff
This room was booked last minute on a holiday weekend due to plumbing issues at home. We are familiar with the area and enjoyed the location. The pull out couch needs new springs at the foot of the bed and the pool needs some cleaning but wasn't unusable.
There is a handicap chair lift for both the pool and hot tub, which we have not seen at other hotels we have stayed at.
If we ever need a local hotel again we will book at this location.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by AtlanticOcean0 Terrible! Needs serious improvements!
I hate to say that I am completely dissatisfied with my stay here at the Holiday Inn Clearwater East. If I knew my stay was going to end up the way it did, I would have gone somewhere else. The hotel exterior looks nice and inviting, plenty of parking and located right off the main road. The lobby appeared to be fairly clean, but dim and not like a typical Holiday Inn I'm use to. When I checked in around 12a (my flight was three hours late) the agent at the desk was very nice and helpful with information about the area. Check-in went smooth, in and out in no time. That is not the problem. Here we go... when I entered my room it had a old musty smell to it. The carpets looked fifty years old and the furniture looked like it had been in the room for the past ten years. I was traveling with some friends, and I thought I'd be nice and offer them the nice big bed. I'm use to sleeping on the couch, so I didn't think it was going to be a problem. WRONG!!!!!! When I pulled that couch out, there were blood stains on the sheets, blankets, and even the pillow case! Of course it looks like the sheets were washed, but why weren't they thrown out? When I took the sheets off the bed, I noticed there were multiple blood stains on the bed!!! It was truly disgusting to see this. I went to the front desk to complain, and asked for a rollaway bed instead. My request was granted (I appreciate the accomadation) however, the cot felt like metal coat hangers!! Extremely uncomfortable. So... I took the sheets off the cot, and put them on the bloody couch hoping for some comfort without any diseases. Little did I know, the room is right next to the breakfast area. So, I had little sleep because of such noisy people. Breakfast was typical, and restocked frequently. The pool was filthy dirty... so a swim with the leaves was not to fun. When I requested to be moved to another room, the agent told me that she would let me know if anything was available. Never heard anything, so I was stuck in the blood bed for another night. Needless to stay, I was disgusted more by the blood than anything during this stay. Although this is a couch, I believe it is unacceptable to have sheets and a bed with blood on them. Oh, and the bathroom fan did not work.... which didn't help anything. Don't stay here if you are looking to relax. I certainly wasted my points on this stay.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Chi-town Hustler Staff is great, breakfasts are lacking
I've been staying here because of a longer term work assignment. Breakfasts are like the movie Groundhog Day -- same thing over and over, each and every day. No variation.
Had major internet connectivity problems last week, frequent disconnections or slow to load. Leap Networks, the tech company, was useless and their tech support team was poor.
There have been many baseball and softball teams here, and they were pretty rowdy and bothersome at times.
The staff is very friendly. After being here a while, they all know me and greet me as I enter or leave. I've asked for help on a few things, and they bent over backwards to help.
