hotels? driving?

I'm researching my first vaca as a solo parent w/ kids ages 5 and 10. I have the flight/budget all picked and i'm looking at 3 hotels. Holiday Inn Htel & Suites Clearwater beach, Barefoot Beach Resort or the Postcard Inn .....any advice regarding these- i need to choose one and like all others, there's great and awful reviews? I'm nervous to rent a car and drive, how is the traffic in this area? Easy to navigate? I'm asuming they're all within walking distance to little restaurants?

I would choose HI Clearwater as it is more accessible to beach, restaurants , activities, the vast majority in walking distance and you will not need a car! Use UBER to go to anywhere not in walking disrance.

Traffic can be nightmarish in Clearwater Beach at certain times of the day/week. Like bonIl posted, I'd recommend just staying at the aforementioned resort and using Uber when you need to travel off-site. Also, you'll be saving on car rental fees AND more than likely parking fees.
