The location of this hotel is fantastic. You are walking distance to stores, restaurants, bars, & the beach. There is a Sunset Celebration each night at the restaurant downstairs. The pool & pool bar area is very relaxing, you can sit & watch all the boats go by. The rooms have slightly dated decor, however they are very clean &... More

I stayed at this hotel for a week with my husband and we really liked it. The location is fantastic - there is a CVS and a few restaurants, bars and other little shops in very close walking distance. I really liked Indian Rocks Beach - it has a slower pace and very laid back. I was a bit worried... More

Very nice hotel right on the beach and close to all the amenities. The rooms were clear and tidy staff ok don't think much of the tea and coffee facilities from a flask not hot and breakfast in the IHOP was passable only.

Our room was dated but roomy. We had some mechanical issues in the suite but the engineer came up promptly to fix the air and was extremely professional. The view is gorgeous but with the building going on next door the dust was flying from the construction site which will hopefully be done soon. The hotel restaurant and bar are... More

Amazing view from our balcony with gulf view. All day long dolphins where swimming in the inlet and very visible from our room.

The Holiday Inn Hotel and suites on the south end of Clearwater beach is an average, no frills place to stay. The building is older and pretty compact. It was fairly clean and the staff was friendly.

I would first like to start off by saying that the photos of this hotel are a little misleading. The photos make it seem like it is right on the beach.
