According to legend, Indian Rocks Beach, FL got its name when early settlers remarked upon witnessing Native Americans fetching water from a local sulfur spring, “the Indians are on their way to the rocks.” You’ll find even more intriguing history on offer and a plethora of adventurous activities when you visit this beautiful beachside town.
Located on Florida’s central west coast less than 30 miles from Tampa, Indian Rocks has more than 20 Gulf beach access points and an unlimited number of water activities. Enjoy swimming with dolphins, feeding stingrays or acting as trainer for a day at Clearwater Marine Aquarium, just a 15-minute scenic, coastal drive north. The greater goal at CMA is conservation, but visitors are encouraged to get up close and personal with the dolphins, pelicans, green sea turtles and otters.
Appreciate a more relaxing adventure when you head to Indian Rocks Beach Nature Preserve, a 9.3-acre wildlife habitat with native vegetation and wetlands. Explore the preserve’s park areas by taking an educational boardwalk tour. Check out the wildlife from designated observation decks and visit the nature center for a deeper look. With miles of walking trails, a dog park and fishing pier, a day at Indian Rocks Beach Nature Preserve will fly by.
Ensure you’ve got someplace comfortable to rest your head at night so you can relax and take advantage of the many activities Indian Rocks Beach has to offer. Book with IHG hotels in Indian Rocks Beach for world class amenities, comfortable rooms, and friendly staff who will help you do just that.

This was an incredible vacation, we enjoyed the location, the room and the staff everyone were excellent. The best part is the hotel restaurants and the water...its a quiet and beautiful area![More]
Usually we cook on vacation although this hotel had a stove and oven our children ate free...which prompted me and hubby to enjoy the dining experience, thank you Holiday Inn for a real true vacation!! [Less]
Great beach town! We will be back to Clearwater beach & Holiday Inn soon! Our family enjoyed walking to the beach (2-4 min walk), to the pier (10 min walk) no need for a car staying here. Great[More]
restaurant, kids eat free w a paying adult here. Great rooms! Beds are well above average! Kitchenette includes sink, refrigerator, microwave, dishes, glassware and silverware. We especially enjoyed a small children's pool separate from the regular pool (which is nice) so our 2 1/2 year old could play.
Our room was one of the few without a balcony, which was fine because we were at the beach and pool. All in all... Great little place in a great little town! Be back soon! [Less]
