    Ok. Nice room needs updates.

    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 customer service is great but...

    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.)

    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!

    Please consider updating this hotel

    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!!!
