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.

Hotel is above average. Great view from our room on bay side. Short walk to beach. Friendly staff. The staff explained hotel well. Nice restaurant on site. Clean, but needs updates. Clean and spacious room.

The desk staff and housekeeping are top flight. Really and truly. The room was rather small for the price although the AC and fan were great.

The desk staff and housekeeping are top flight. Really and truly. The room was rather small for the price although the AC and fan were great. This place isn't really a child oriented place in spite of the nearby water park. We chose it because we figured it was more adult oriented. The number of children running around, the insistence of adults in bringing their toddlers to the smaller "grown up" pool and hot tub instead of taking them to the huge kiddie pool near the water park was a definite turn off. It's hard enough in these times to social distance in a pool area. It would be preferable if guests under the age of 15 were limited to certain times or that adults had a time where the pool was adult only. We gave this place a try for my birthday and it was OK. Just not the best ever. If you are staying, use the breakfast add-on. That is a great deal (10 bucks for 2 huge breakfasts if you order wisely.) Read less

We were very happy with our stay. We stayed in a harbor side suite with 2 Queen beds and pull out sofa.. Water park was great, my kids loved it. Michelle in the gift shop was great! And made our stay extra special for the children!

We have been traveling to Indian Rocks Beach for 13 years and have always stayed at this hotel. For the last couple of years, we have left a little more disappointed. This Holiday Inn location desperately needs to be updated. This year, it just had an overall feeling of moldy/dirty. For the per night price, I’m sure we could find something else in the area that is nicer. We are Holiday Inn/IHG loyalists so we keep trying, but this may have been this last year we will stay here!

Thank you for such an amazing stay, beds were comfortable and location very beautiful, quiet and relaxing... pool was small and quiet... Staff was very friendly and Welcoming, FD agent was in training and I have to say being a former Hotel Manager she was amazing, very friendly, approachable. You definitely will have an exceptional employee... The only minor issue was the Room door to get in I had to give it a hard push to open it. Other than that, can’t wait to go back and stay at your Hotel. Thank you!!! The Acevedo Fam!!! Read less
