Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Crystal103 Love it here!
We currently live in NC and still have family in the Dunedin/Palm Harbor area. We come down once or twice a year and always stay at your hotel. Love the location! Next to the trail, downtown Dunedin, the beach, the marina, everything we want is in close proximity. I even like the design of the building, with the pool and hot tub in the middle, facing the trail. Very nice layout. Can always count on a good breakfast and friendly service from all staff. Thank you for being there. See you next time!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by mensageek Unexpected surprise
I travel 5 days a week for business and as a respite, I came to Dunedin to spend the weekend with my daughter, son-in-law and granddaughter. On a whim, I reserved the room with bunkbeds so I could have my granddaughter stay with me. I could not envision what that room would look like but thought, "How bad could it be?" Wow! was I surprised! The bunkbeds are in a separate alcove that is whimsically decorated to delight children. It has its own flat screen TV, radio/CD player, telephone, work surface and seating, all without making the rest of the room feel small. My granddaughter was thrilled! I did not have to have my TV monopolized by kiddie programming all weekend and we got to share the pool and hot tub together later. My granddaughter loved being able to select her own breakfast choices in the eating area.
The female staff member who attended to the breakfast area was working the whole time to keep it neat and well stocked. I was impressed by her diligence. All the staff were helpful.
This hotel is clean which is important to me. My granddaughter liked the convenience of the snack machine and soda machine at the end of the hall.
I adore this little hotel in this little town and will definitely stay there again soon. Incidentally, we found a tiny Thai restaurant nearby with very good food which capped the weekend for us.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by moni3c Staff named Hal was awful!!!
Overall, the staff here are awesome, but because of my experience with Hal and how he dealt with the matter I would not return. I had all my family members book at this location because I love the Holiday inn Change especially after the upgrades. upon check in Hal was non-welcoming very argumentative and lacked problem solving skills. there was a miscommunication with my check in date amongst staff and clearly noted in teh system and as a result he treated me and my family like dirt. When I returned the next date Rick took charge and promptly accommodated us. He also gave us a free stay for our troubles, which was very nice. EVERYONE other than Hal was excellent, but the feeling I felt due to the treatment I got from Hal, I simply cannot forget being treated like dirt or simply a customer. It left such a soar taste with me and my family over 4 different parties that we regretted selecting this location over all the other hotel locations in the area.
People that do not like their jobs should not be working with people they ruin business.
Cindy, Paul, Ruthie, and Rick AND Devon were exceptional staff. thanks to them the remainder of my stay was wonderful!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ger9 Clean Hotel and Great Location
This is a nice clean hotel, and an easy walk to restaurants and shops. Nice staff. I stayed for several weeks on a job assignment, and was happy with the choice. The bike trail is right behind the hotel, and a nice area to ride. It is a good place for couples because the ladies can shop and the guys can get some good beer. Keep in mind that this is waterfront community, not a beach front. The beaches are about a 5 mile drive.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 2Bears Immaculate and comfortable room
We just had our very first visit to the Holiday Inn Express in Dunedin, and it was a great overnight visit. In fact, we are going there again next week to get together with relatives who will also be staying there........upon our great recommendation.
The hotel was nice and clean, and the staff very friendly. The only negative we had with the hotel was other guests...we think it was children....running up and down the hallway outside our room very late at night. We didn't do anything about it, and it eventually stopped, but we thought the front desk should have addressed that interruption of everyone's sleep. Other than that....we enjoyed it immensely and are returning.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mare1246 Great location and wonderful stay!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this hotel. The staff was courteous and helpful. The room was clean and spacious. Best of all was the short walking distance to the center of Dunedin where there are great shops and restaurants. Loved the Pinellas Trail behind the hotel! Was able to run/walk on it every morning. We would definitely stay here again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Lori180 Why would you stay somewhere else?
I recently had the opportunity to stay at the hotel for 4 nights while I was in for work. I could have stayed anywhere in the Greater Tampa area, but chose Dunedin as it looked like a great little town. Not only was Dunedin great, but the Holiday Inn is really a very good place to stay. It's immaculate, hotel staff were extremely friendly and helpful; and, the hotel is located on the County pedestrian path - you can walk or ride all over the City within minutes. Also, though I didn't have much time to take advantage of it, the pool is lovely. I will definitely be back.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by golfguygg1 Excellent Staff
Excellent Staff, made a room change on our arrival with no problems. Staff supplied us with maps and gave us directions to different points of interest. Also, the staff let us check out at 12 noon on our last day. Breakfast was hot with some variety in selections. Overall, I would give a 4.5 out of 5.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by KMQ725 Family Vacation
This was our first vacation with our 2 year old son. We had a great time! The hotel is great and in a wonderful location. We drove down from NJ so we had our car with us, so getting to the beach wasn't an issue. If you are looking for beach front this is not the choice for you. The staff were extremely helpful and kind. I had an issue with one of the washing machines (yes I did laundry on my vacation!) The washer didn't spin out correctly and I went to report it to the front desk. They refunded my money to me, and I didn't even go to the desk for that, I just wanted to let them know that the machine didn't work right!
Our room was standard, and very comfortable for the three of us. it was very clean and it felt as if it had been updated recently.
I would say that the hallway carpets could be updated. I did see some wear and tear in them, but the room was very nice. The beds were comfortable.
The breakfast that was included was very good. They had pancakes, eggs, sausage/bacon, biscuits, assorted muffins, breads, bagels, and cereal. They also had yogurt, donuts, cinnamon buns. There was juice, milk, water and hot coffee all day.
We really enjoyed ourselves and our son had a great time too! We would definitely go back and stay again!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Ultra-convenient to Spring Training
My second stay at this great location. Went for a Jays Spring Training game, and walked along the bicycle trail to the stadium. After the game, I enjoyed walking to nearby restaurants, shops, and bars. The hotel is very up to date, with a friendly staff, great rooms, and ample breakfast choices.

We stayed to watch some spring training baseball games and the location was perfect! We were able to walk to the game on a nice bike trail and were also within walking distance to all of the shops and resturants. I was recommend staying there.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Re54 Not what was advertised
I booked a room at this hotel requesting a balconey which was offered on the web sight. When I checked in I was told that the hotel didn't offer balconeys. I felt decieved because it was offered on line when booking the reservation. They did compensate by deducting 40.00 from bill. Also when sitting in one of the areas by the patio/pool area. A maintenance working turned the sprinklers on us. I'm sure he had to have seen us. We changed hotels after two days to get a room more to our liking. The room was clean and the staff was pleasent, just not what I expected. I didn't take advantage of the complimentary breakfast but it looked very nice.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Phil914 Need towel racks
The only complaint I have is that you would like guests to reuse towels but there are no towel racks to put towels in so it becomes difficult to have dry towels unless you only use them one time.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Kanata Like coming home
When ever we travel, whenever possible, we stay at Holiday Inn & Expresses or Holiday Inns. We know what to expect, we know the comfort, we know the cleanliness. Just like coming home.
The ONLY thing I would recommend is, that they upgrade their Kleenex & toilet papers.

New carpets and paint give the rooms a fresh look. Updated countertops in bathrooms too. No towel rack though. Towels take up too much room on the counter.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Acell Everything was great!
I was impressed with the owners and their friendliness with not only their customers, but also their staff, who where great, and also their willingness to dig in and work along side the staff. We have stayed in a lot of HIE, and this would have to rank right at the top!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Orbie Great hotel and terrific location
We were passing through Dunedin, thought we would stay one
night and ended up staying three nights. Our room had been
freshly painted, had new carpet & vanity and was very clean.
Included breakfast was a great way to start the day - something
there to please everyone. Pool and hot tub were both very well
kept. Staff was very friendly and helpful. The hotel location was within easy walking distance of the waterfront & downtown restaurants. I would definitely stay here again.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by doug06 great desk clerk
Can't wait for the new suites. The mattress we had was old. unable to control room temperature. Bathroom lighting was good. However old shower.
Every Holiday Inn, Express also, we are always given water & a bag of treats. We pay more to stay at this one and get nothing other than a thank you for being a priority platinum member.
We stop in Dunedin every year to visit friends and I am hoping next year the rooms will be improved.

Thank you for helping make our stay in Dunedin a pleasurable trip. We reserved 2 rooms and our accomodations met our needs. The lobby/common area of the hotel is comfortable and relaxing. We spent a lot of time at the pool and in the common area visiting with our family. This town in amazing... so quaint and the people were all very friendly.
We will be back!
