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. 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.

Friendly staff. Overlooking channel with boats docked right outside. Water park attached to hotel, putt putt golf that runs down the center was a lot of fun. Common areas were kept very clean. Restaurant and bar attached to hotel. Beach about 2 blocks away.
