Holiday Inn Harbourside Hotel

Indian Rocks, Clearwater and 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.

I had concerns when booking. It turned out to be a very nice hotel. I thought the walk in closet was a bonus. The neighbors were loud, but we had so much fun at the beach, Busch Gardens and aquarium we were asleep withou much worry. Easy to walk to restaurants and stores. I wish we had brought a wagon, or the hotel could offer rentals. Only 3 blocks to beach, but a wagon would have made it so much more enjoyable. Utilize the trolley system! Front desk was a huge resource understanding it. It’s not the bus. Staff was awesome and hotel had great “feel” to it. Hotel bar and restaurant were really good. Kids ate free!!!! For breakfast.

Cabinet door broken/fell onto us multiple times, 1/2 remotes didn’t work, card swipe access didn’t work consistently, broken blind, no hot water in shower every time. The restaurant and mini golf were nice.

They do not restock our room with anything. They did not vacuum for the 5 days that we were there. They took it upon themselves to throw away a clothing item of ours. This place could do so much better with the location that they have! Unfortunately, points don’t help with compensation :( Read less
