Very Family friendly

I really liked the hotel and the location of the hotel. It was very clean and easy to get around in. I liked the fact that it had plenty of chairs at the pool and it was easy to get food or drink. The main beach was only a block away. Many good resturants are with in walking distance. I hope to stay their again.

Good Vacation Hotel

Overall I was very satisfied with the hotel. The location is good, the Hotel is well kept and clean. It is a good value. The only annoying issue is having to pay for parking in the Hotel parking lot. It is like paying extra for napkins at a restaurant.

Boat trips are right down the street. Downtown Clearwater Beach seems to be in a recession with many vacant stores.

Beautiful Hotel for a Holiday Inn - NICE

My wife and I were very pleasantly surprised to stay at the Holiday Inn Clearwater. The hotel was VERY nice, had a great bar/restaurant area, pool, and nice location. We would definitely recommend and hope to visit this property again sometime in the future.

waterfront location

The Holiday Inn Hotel and suites was perfect for us. The suite was roomy and the view of the gulf was great. Because there was no beach at the site the water came up very close. the pool was a good size and located between the gulf and the hotel. the beach was a short walk.

very family friendly

The hotel is right on the beach, so you'll have to walk a block or so to reach the beach(without a hotel ON it). The room was very clean and newer. the city view was great better than expected. Jimmies Fish house is the restaurant. The food was excellent although they did have trouble keeping servers. Service was near poor some nights. one morning took 2 hours to complete breakfast. all in all I still would eat there, the food is that good.

Family Friendly

The room was confortable and the view was excellent. We thought it was on the beach, but it was not we had to walk a couple of blocks to the beach. The hotel was on the intercoastal way. There were a few families at this location and it looked like they were having a great time. There was some construction in the area however it was still easy to get around.

My review of Holiday Inn Hotel & Suites CLEARWATER BEACH

Was disappointed because it did not have a beach. I thought water front meant beach. We were on the second floor overlooking the pool and it was kind of noisy. The room itself was nice and the beds were very comfortable. I would not stay there again, not because of the hotel itself but the crowds around the hotel.

Newness

This Holiday Inn was just fully renovated and brand new. Everything was new and it was wonderful. The food, the staff, the room, everything was great. The only downside was there was no business center. No computers to use.
