    Great Exterior/Water Views/Pool Deck but Dated Interior

    I used points to stay a free night and maybe I was given an outdated room they reserve for these purposes (which is not intuitive - they should give better rooms to IHG members), however it was surprising to find a room that looked like it was from the 70s. Green very worn carpet, old fashioned wallpaper and very dated furnishings (think old fashioned wood furniture circa the 70s/80s), and dated bathroom, everything. However, the bed was clean and comfortable and it was still acceptable because the star of this property is the expansive non-cramped pool deck and wonderful bay and sunset views. Other properties including next door have smaller cramped pools where you feel you are on top of everyone else - no privacy, but here, there was breathing space and it was just beautiful. The Fish House restaurant on property offers free shooters at sunset and is literally on the water with beautiful views - really nice staff. So if you can get past the very dated rooms for a great pool area, this is for you. No fitness room/gym.

    Excellent location for beach and lovely pool

    We stayed for one night as a break from Disney and the chance to enjoy the beach and sea. The hotel is well positioned with parking available and extremely friendly reception staff. They made our young girls feel special. The room was very comfortable and we had the luck of a view from our balcony of the pool and the sea. The pool was brilliant, we enjoyed swimming then moving over to the deck to see the sun set over the beach/sea. A short walk to Clearwater Beach and the Pier.

    Love this hotel!

    This is the second time we have stayed here (April, 2023 and just got back from our March 2024 trip). While I have read some negative reviews about this hotel, I have to disagree with many of the things that others have said. We chose this hotel the second time around because of the gulf view rooms (we stayed in 514, overlooking Jimmy's with a perfect view of the water), the location to everything on south beach, its pool, tiki bar, and Jimmy's restaurant with live music. We even set up our iPad on the balcony to watch some NCAA bball action with the live music at Jimmy's in the background. In addition to that, our rooms were cleaned to perfection every single day. Their cleaning staff is top notch. Would we stay here again? Absolutely! Oh, and the on site doughnut/coffee shop is a plus, too! We really appreciate having a home-away-from-home here.

    Do not Stay Here

    This is the most outdated Holiday Inn I have ever stayed at. I do not recommend this hotel to anyone. It certainly is not worth over $300 per night average. All furnishings are very old. The carpet was dirty, the bathroom tiles were loose, and the bottom of the bathroom door look like something chewed on it.

    Do not stay here

    My family of 4 adults and 2 children booked the family suite from Monday March 11 to Friday March 15h 2024.  The final invoice was roughly close to $3800 after conversion from US to Cdn dollars. Some of the  front desk staff lacked knowledge of local attractions when requesting information. I was told to Google it or go to the different marina in the area and do the research myself ... Not one recommendation was suggested to assist us. The 'Ocean View' room given was a view of a A/C unit and a side of another building ... When I made an inquiry of switching rooms to improve our view no efforts were made to improve the situation.  The pool was ok ... the pool chairs were old and there were very few umbrellas. When I asked for an umbrella the pool attendant told me the umbrellas were broken. I would like to point out this property needs to be updated ... ASAP. The decor and furniture are from the 1990s.  I have stayed at IHG properties from past vacations or for business use but this location was a huge disappointment.  Never again. I'm sure there are other locations on the strip that would provide better service and be updated with today's standards.
