Holiday Inn Harbourside Hotel

Indian Rocks, Clearwater & St Pete

The hotel

Situated on the barrier island of Indian Rocks Beach amid 15 waterfront acres, there's lots to do for those active bods out there. The hotel is located on the intracoastal waterway, with a marina that offers boat rentals and fishing charters. There's also a swimming pool with Jacuzzi and sun deck for those more interested in lying back and taking it easy. Cruzan Rum Shack's waterfront tiki pool bar is on hand to mix you a poolside cocktail, while lunches can be enjoyed at Jimmy Guana's waterfront restaurant.

Room was adequate. Nothing above average. Upper neighbors were very noisy until 1am for 2 nights. Asked to change rooms but they said they were full. If your coming to relax this isn’t the place. Did complain but didn’t make a difference.

This is a nice place for couples or families. There is a putt putt course on the main level. There is also a restuarant and bar on site as well as a game room. There is a water park on the property. It is within walking distance to the beach as well as other restaurants.

I was inpressed with this hotel. When you walk in, you have a living room and a full kitchen. Next room was two queen beds, full bathroom with sink and a room inbetween with a sink, morror and closet. Really nice to have when you have boys and girls getting ready.

Right outside our door was the bay side with boats. Walked 2 blocks to the beach. Small water park by the hotel and a pool for the guest. Overall it was a really great place to stay.

Substandard room and amenities. Had no hot water for first day and ceiling fan wasn’t working. But bed was good. Felt that we were given the poorest room because of the discount purchase. Will not stay there again.

To start with, Melissha and Cheryl at the front desk were awesome. Both were friendly and helpful with any questions we had. The hotel has a cool vibe next to the harbor and there's plenty of food and entertainment options both on property and within walking distance. This is a pretty narrow stretch of land so the beach is easily walkable too.… Read more
To start with, Melissha and Cheryl at the front desk were awesome. Both were friendly and helpful with any questions we had. The hotel has a cool vibe next to the harbor and there's plenty of food and entertainment options both on property and within walking distance. This is a pretty narrow stretch of land so the beach is easily walkable too. Probably 10 mins walk at most. We only stayed one night in one of the loft style suites, but we enjoyed the view of the marina off the deck. The dolphins gave us a good show at dusk and morning coffee was relaxing there too. I only give the property 4 stars because while the room itself was very nice, it is ready for some updates. It was a little musty smelling, which I know can be an issue with all the humidity here, and shows some wear and tear - particularly in the bathroom. Also, even though there is a full sized kitchen, poorly equipped for actually cooking a meal. I would stay here again. One other thing to note. It is about half way between Clearwater Beach and Johns Pass. It will take you 15-20 minutes to get to either one via car so this is not really a Clearwater Beach location. Read less
