Holiday Inn-nice location...needs work

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, but soon realized there were no spaces available. I wasn't sure where else to park. They did not inform us that there was a large surface lot in addition to the parking garage. NBD. I'll chalk that up to a long day of travel. I had requested a rollaway bed, because 2 queen' s and a sofa pull out was tight for my family of 6. I have 3 boys, all over 6 feet tall. I was informed that roll aways were not permitted in the suite. I'm not sure if it's a fire code, but there was plenty of room to place the roll away. Upon entering the room, we had to wrestle with the door. It was clearly out of alignment, and we needed to lead with our shoulder to enter it. It was so uneven, sunshine poored through the corners in the morning. As pullout sofas go, this one was the most uncomfortable ever, but the two queen beds were very comfortable. The wooden blinds could not keep the sunlight out in the early morning, and one was in disrepair. Since we were heading out on the first day, I left a note and $10 for housekeeping requesting 6 towels, extra shampoo/conditioner, and a change of sheets for the sofa pull out. The set that was on there was torn and stained. Ewww. The seat cushions to the sofa were pretty stained also. When I returned, the $10 was gone. Only received 5 towels. Bedding was not changed and no extra shampoo/conditioner. Room had a constant banging in the bathroom. I think it might have been from the parking garage below, but I could not be sure. The walls were also paper thin, so when the people in the room behind us woke up, so did we. Complimentary coffee is available at the restaurant on site. 2 of the 3 mornings I tried for coffee, the pots were empty. I waited for 10 minutes one day, but the restaurant was so understaffed that nobody saw me. I went back to the room and was going to attempt to use the Keurig, but the unsanitary conditions made me think twice. Room had 2 thermostats. Both appeared to be low on battteries because the numbers would fade and even disappear. Ceiling fan in bedroom swayed back and forth and would make hammering noise from time to time. Bathroom was dated, plaster missing from stained ceiling. Towels for the pool/gym are about the size I use to dry dishes. Pool area was nice. Surrounded by a bar that looked like fun, but I didn't see it open because we had activities off site. There is mini golf and water park, but we did not use. There is a wooden walkway around the entire hotel, overlooking the water. It's a great place to sit out in the morning and have a coffee...until you realize that others think it's a great place to walk around and have a smoke! If the rooms are no smoking, shouldn't the walkways in front of them be? I believe smoking is permitted throughout the grounds, and I smelled smoke whenever we were outside. To sum it up, this is a nice location at a decent price. The property appears to be in really good shape, but the living space left a lot of room for improvement.

Good location nice room

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 up and down. It is a shallow sloping beach so walking is very comfortable. The hotel is over 30 years old but it has been maintained pretty well. It could use some refreshing but we found our room to be large, comfortable and clean. We slept very good. We would return. It has a good restaurant on the property and it is close to others.

Excellent Location!

This place is in a great location! Love the restaurant and bar attached to the hotel with good food and entertainment. Many other restaurants within walking distance which is great!! The place is clean but kind of run down - could use some updating. Was disappointment that as a guest we had to pay extra for miniature golf - which is probably why not many people were playing it. I will forsure stay again and would recommend this to everyone! C

The location is wonderful

We stayed here for four nights. We were only booked for two, but decided to extend our stay. The property is on the harbor and a five minute walk to the beach. There is an outside pool and jacuzzi. They also have a bathroom with showers poolside. The rooms were very clean. We had a keurig coffee maker and mini fridge. Their staff was so friendly and helpful. People were always around cleaning and polishing everything. The have a bar and restaurant on site. The live music at night was really fun. We will definitely be back next year!

Great for couples or family

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!
