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.

I ordered our room through a third party website, so I was not sure what to expect. The parking attendant had our name and gave us directions to check in.

Checkout was even easier than checking in, we simply handed over our room keys. Read less

We made a reservation and called directly the hotel several times to make sure we were reserving the right accommodations for our family. Upon arriving we did not get the room we were confirmed we were supposed to get. Instead we got a tiny room with two beds that you could barely walk around the beds. We went back to the front office we were told they didn't have anything else. They finally found a room bigger but only with one bed and one pull out couch. Their room smells like the have never change those carpets in at least 20 years. The first night when we came back from eating dinner we found termites all over the bathroom and the bed pillows. We called the front office and of course they couldn't do anything because they didn't have any other rooms but they didn't even offer to come and fumigate or take care of the problem. The next day we had them coming fumigate for the termite problem. The shower will only get cold or scalding hot and it wouldn't turn off. We called them to have it fix and they couldn't because they didn't have the parts to fix it. Every time we were at the office and somebody was checking in and they were having the same problem about getting the wrong room, to small for what they booked. Of course the front desk employees are very apologetic but is the same script the same song & dance. I will not recommend this place they need major major remodelacion and new Management. Even the microwave look to be from the 1980s. Read less

We were only here for one night, but truly enjoyed it, hotel was right on the intercoastal and only a 3 minute walk to the beautiful beach (you can rent beach chairs from the hotel!!), where, within 5 minutes of being there saw 4 dolphins swimming!!

We were only here for one night, but truly enjoyed it, hotel was right on the intercoastal and only a 3 minute walk to the beautiful beach (you can rent beach chairs from the hotel!!), where, within 5 minutes of being there saw 4 dolphins swimming!! The staff were wonderful, and very quick with check-in, room was very large, and well appointed, the only negative we felt was the fact that when you are on the inner part of the building, your only window faces into the open courtyard so it was not possible to have your curtains open without being in a fishbowl. That being said, we had no reason to be in the room other than to sleep!! :-) The restaurant at the end of the property was super, staff great, live music in the evening, and the food was yummy!

Had a good time. Love IRB. HOTEL is old but fun. Only issue is with jet ski rental people along the hotel marina. They are out there revving the engines all the time right under the hotel rooms. Very annoying and the hotel won't control it.
