    Good Bye, Holiday Inn

    They now charge a mandated fee of $32 a night for parking & waterpark even if you don't have a vehicle to park or don't plan on going to a water park. They call it a "resort fee" Dirty outdated hotel!

    Stay elsewhere, avoid the Hotel needing complete renovation!

    Horrible! Good location on the water in Clearwater Beach but the hotel is in desperate need of full renovation. We were actually disgusted by the accommodations. Old out dated and just yuk! For the $1400 price for three nights, absolutely should have chosen elsewhere. Husband is member of IHG and will be complaining to their site. By the way the photos do not do it justice. I wish it looked as good as the photos, NOT. Place is wore out! UPDATE: Response received from : Christine Bottger, General Manager of Holiday Inn & Suites Clearwater Beach, Florida was that we should have let her know during our stay. And what would that solve? Could she have the outdated and worn hotel renovated white we were there? I stand by my review. This place is VERY outdated and worn. Three nights April 27-30, 2023 for $1400 total. We could have found much better accommodations at that price. My bad for not researching more.

    Stay somewhere else.

    The check in process was a nightmare. I was charged up front for the room and parking on my debit card when it was already paid for on another credit card. I did receive a refund for this but the staff was unfriendly and unapologetic. The room was mediocre at best. We had a two bedroom suite, the bunk bed ladder was unsecured and broken and unsafe for my kids, the silverware drawer was broken and fell every time you opened it, even the paint on the walls was patchy and unkept. Do not recommend.

    Great stay. Clean and comfortable. Suitable for solo, couples or families.

    Location was good with several restaurants and shops nearby and very close to the beach. The room was clean and comfortable. There was no safe in the room. The standard free breakfast is not included but there is a restaurant within the hotel although I preferred to use the nearby restaurants. The trolley bus stops close to and opposite the hotel. The swimming pool is adequate for adults and children and there is a sunbathing veranda facing the sea. There is a self laundry facility. I would certainly recommend this hotel.
