Holiday Inn Hotel & Suites Clearwater Beach S-Harbourside

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

This was a nice hotel. The room was clean and the walls weren't too terribly thin. They were doing some construction on the building which was loud during the day but I think they were damaged in hurricane Irma. There were beautiful views on the marina side of the building. Overall, I would absolutely recommend this hotel and would stay again.

We really enjoyed the stay. We had a great harbor view room and everything was in walking distance. We loved having a kitchen in our room.

We had a great time. Accommodations were fine. It's important that you really check into whether you want a marina view and/or sunset view. Kids had a good time and you are walking distance to the beach and many restaurants. The local town is safe and there's a good community feel. Kudos to the manager who helped us to rebook to a room more suitable to our liking. I would book again.

The Holiday Inn Harbourside Hotel was absolutely fantastic. My family and I were super surprised when we first walked into our room. It was only two blocks from the beach, which was a 3 minute walk. They are located in an area that is about a 15 minute drive in either direction to the major tourist parts of the coastal area. It was a very quiet area, which my family and I enjoyed very much! We plan on returning and bringing the rest of our family with us!

This is the only place we will stay in the Clearwater Beach Area. Hotel staff was Great, Cleanliness was top notch. Walking distance to everything you need, Beach, Bars, food, ect. Do your self a favor and book your next stay here!!

Great location with covered parking. Short walk to the beach. Staff was very friendly and accommodating when we asked if we could check out at 1. Had a great lunch at the restaurant. Lee was a very good waitress.

We anticipated harbor view room however when arrived we were in a "courtyard room". The reservation person was not accommodating and unfriendly. Lots of foot traffic and could hear the people (playing mini golf) well into the night. Had to keep the blinds closed for privacy. It rained that night and they began "vacuuming up" water indoors at 8am...too early and too loud.The main pool area is under major construction. The pluses were the smaller spa pool for quiet relaxation and availability to the beach.

Everything was great, only problem we had was; got there early, was promised a room on main floor so we wouldn't have to carry our luggage to second floor, which the elevator didn't go to. Also said they would call when room was ready. They didn't call and had to take a room on the floor the elevator didn't go to. We are I our 60's, I have had back surgery so I am not much help with the luggage. It was 2 flights of stairs, a little hard on my husband. Everything else was good. I was promised a ground floor room, then told they can't guarantee any thing like that when we came back.

Had a wonderful vacation. Beautiful hotel. Upgraded to water view and was perfect.

Stayed in 1 BR Harbor view Suite with a full kitchen. -Roomy and clean with comfortable beds and pillows. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Meal, drinks and entertainment were very good at onsite restaurant. Some rooms are stair only (no elevator) access. Place is nice, not too big or crowded - laid back feel. In process of upgrading Wifi, so may not be available.

We were disappointed to learn that our room was not water-facing. For a reasonable upgrade fee we moved to a magnificent room. We enjoyed the restaurant on two occasions and played miniature golf in the courtyard. The balcony facing the marina was terrific. We did have trouble getting the room cool enough. The thermostat has some sort of restrictor and my wife and I woke up hot and sweaty both nights.

Book a room on the water side. Great hotel. Great value for the money. Perfect location. Only negative was housekeeping wheeling carts across wood planks at 7 am every day. Otherwise, everything was great!

nice harbor views. nice zero entry kiddie pool. two short blocks to the beach. staff was friendly and courteous. rooms could be better but would obviously cost more.

Great place to stay. Had everything if you didn't want to leave. Close to everything too.

Off season was quiet, still plenty to do. Beach within walking distance, beautiful.

The hotel wasn't exactly what was described on Orbitz. I expected something newer and with more amenities on site. The hotel was within walking distance of a couple different restaurants and the beach, but the point is that none of these were on the property. Also, one of the nights I stayed at the hotel, the maid forgot to stop by to clean the room. I had to call the front desk to have the room cleaned and bed made up. I probably wouldn't go back.

This was a clean hotel with friendly, helpful staff. The kids loved the pools and miniature golf! It was very close to the beach too!! We're looking forward to returning to this hotel next vacation!!

Old style, comfortable, unpretentious, large fun hotel. good for families, lots of amenities on site. beach is not too far away. pools are good. got acquainted with a couple in the hot tub and got invited for the next day to their boat which was docked at the hotel. fun. I think it is the type of encounter that reflects the general atmosphere there. Service was all around excellent including housekeeping except for one truly overwhelmed waitress on Sunday morning. food was good. drinks were better. great TV coverage of college football. the basic room is a little too basic, although it did have a fridge and coffee maker, was expensive for Labor Day week-end and if I were staying there more than 2 days, I would definitely want an upgrade.

Relaxing, Fun and invigorating! Went here just to relax and get away... had a blast at the hotel bar... 2 pools and all of the fun people that were there on vacation! I will go here often as I live near by and really enjoyed the night!

My family and I decided to visit the Clearwater Beach area. The description of this hotel seemed to fit our needs. It met all of our expectations. The kids enjoyed the family pool. We had a great view of the marina. There was a slight musty smell in the room due to the closeness of the water from the intercoastal.
