Clearwater Beach getaway near Pier 60

Dolphin sightings from the beach are a common occurrence at the Mediterranean-style Holiday Inn Hotel & Suites on the Gulf of Mexico. The fun-filled property is only 500 feet from the sands of Florida's beautiful Clearwater Beach. Guests can walk to Pier 60 for fishing and nightly sunset celebrations or enjoy a heated Gulf-front pool and nightly entertainment. The only thing you won't find is a reason to leave, as this laid-back beach property is the perfect place for a family vacation or romantic getaway.

Highlights
  • Game room
  • Full-service hair and nail salon
  • Parasailing and Waverunner rentals (fees apply), beach volleyball and beachside events
Rooms

Guests can find plenty of room choices, including kid suites with bunk beds or one-bedroom suites. Amenities include 32-inch flat-screen LCD HDTV, granite counter tops, private balconies, free high-speed Internet, plush towels and tropical decor.

Features

The hotel has a lower pool deck where you can relax while taking in the calming sights and sounds of the Gulf of Mexico. Above sits a Gulf-side heated swimming pool with a poolside bar. Tropical-themed Jimmy's Fish House and Iguana Bar features fresh seafood and a full menu for breakfast, lunch and dinner with indoor and outdoor seating.

This was great!

This is my 7th time to visit this hotel; last year was the absolute WORST, this year was good! Desk staff was helpful, pool deck and restaurant were always on the money as usual, room was clean and fresh every day. The upgrade to the water heaters and plumbing infrastructure last year is definitely palpable with pleasant warm showers and clean, clean towels and sheets. Parking lot was spotless as well. Highly recommend the gulf side rooms; this is a huge reason I stay at this property. 2 blocks from the beach/beachwalk!

Post Corner Pizza on the on Gulfway Blvd. has the widest variety of great food available, and the best, fastest service. Wide variety of items on the menu for anyone, and they have space on the patio OR inside to accomodate large families/groups. Good prices for being on the beach too!

Excellent all-around

Took a four day vacation on a whim, the number one priority was a hotel with a nice coastal view and access to the beach. For the view (with a coastal view room), and the very reasonable price, this was a great place to stay. The accomodations: walking distance to the beach, and the pool & restaurant overlooking the Gulf Coast made the stay quite relaxing and serene. One complaint is the extra $10/day parking fee; however I think that is commonplace at Clearwater Beach.

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.
