We stayed in this facility attending a baseball game at Spectrum Field in Clearwater. When we arrived we were told the (1) elevator was located in the center of the facility. It is a large facility and the (1) elevator is extremely slow. If your room is located to the elevator you are a lucky one, however, most rooms require...

We had a great suite at this hotel; the only way it could have been better is if we had faced the water. The full kitchen was a plus because we were able to eat breakfast at our leisure and bring home fresh seafood from the local fish fish market to cook for lunch. The staff was helpful and provided...

The pool connected to the holiday inn deck is NOT part of your stay ! It is part of a different company, and a $25.00 charge per person will be incurred! This would be fine if advertised to inn guests, but it is NOT! Signage at holiday says "FallsPool" with arrow, signage at gate to pool is silent on different...

Hotel is located close to Beach in St Petersburg Florida. Upon arrival, it appears to be a great location. We checked into a room with a water view (not the gulf, but the other side of St Petes). We checked in at night and couldn't see the lay of the land. We were told to park in the parking garage,...

My wife and I spent one night at this property recently. We had never stayed there before. We enjoyed our stay. The place is on the intracoastal waterway. It is only a few blocks from the beach so it was quick and easy to go to the beach. The beach was not too crowded and was very nice to walk...

Found this little gem after checking out of a terrible place. Was so happy with this hotel. Super friendly staff, great rooms, good restaurant and a fun setup! There is a lot of places to visit within walking distance. A short drive to clearwater pier/beach. Felt very safe in this area. Will definitely stay here again!

We were very disappointed in this hotel. We had reservation for king bed & were given two doubles. Air conditioner and mattresses were noisy. Room was dated. Sheets on bed were of low quality. Looks great from outside but our room was not. Being in the intercostal was the only positive
