Not impressive, just average......

I want to give this hotel a better review, but I just cannot. It has great potential! Our room was a standard room.The mattresses were old and springy. There was not alot of space at all. There was a mini fridge. It was so dark! Only one window and because the hotel has a covered atrium over the middle, even with the curtain all the way open it was dark. Then because we had the lamps on, every time someone walked past our room they looked inside..kind of creepy. Room was small, motel-ish. Nothing special. Note to Holiday Inn- guest do not need a desk. They need a table and 2 chairs. If they want to "work" the table can serve as a desk. Our closet was HUGE! We wished for a smaller closet and a bigger space. As for the amenities, the attached water park is NOT included with your room. You get a discount rate of 16.95. Mini golf course is covered by the atrium so you can use this as a rainy activity but not special in any way, also not included and not cheap! 9 for an adult and 7 for a child. Come on! You can walk across the street to get to the beach, small beach access there with no showers or restrooms.There is an onsite restaurant with live music. It is very popular with people staying in Indian Rocks Beach. It gets filled up starting about 630-7. They are an outdoor casual dining place. They had good food and a lot of different drink options. This hotel has a lot of stairs. Only one elevator. It seemed there were stairs everywhere! There is covered parking for free. There is an attached marina. All of the rooms facing the marina/intracoastal are suites. We only stayed one night and were glad.

Will not be returning

The water pressure in this place is terrible. Breakfast was not included. Oh and if you want the house keepers trying look through your window when your shutters are closed this is the place for you! We caught the house keeper looking into the window as we walked up, she immediately scurried off without a word being said to us.

View of the Intracoastal waterway -- watch the dolphins

We booked this trip last minute and it turned out to be a great choice for us. We had a suite with a living room/kitchen combo with a separate bedroom with 2 queen beds. The living room had a pull out couch, so there was more than enough space for our family of five. Our patio, although not private, overlooked the marina/intracoastal waterway. We got watch boats & dolphins pass by - It was a great view! The room was clean but smelled a little musky until the air conditioner got running full speed. The check-in process was a little clunky. We arrived around 1pm and were told that we would receive a text when our room was ready. By 5pm we still had not received notification. The front desk staff said they got busy and forgot. We traveled with 2 children under 12 and were given a pass for free meals for them with the purchase of an adult meal at the hotel restaurant. However, in the morning when I went to grab some breakfast to go, the waitress told me that it was full price for the kids because I was taking the food to go. This information is not on the pass (but it is printed on the menu). It was not a lot of money, but it still rubbed me the wrong way. The hotel is within walking distance or several seafood restaurants and the beach. **If you have small kids though it might be hard to take all the gear you need to the beach. It was such a quick trip that we didn't get a chance to use the pool or mini golf but both looked nice.

Great time in IRB

Got a great deal through trip advisor. Upgraded at check-in to a spacious and clean room.Pool was nice, but could have used towels restocked. Very close to beach, restaurants and convenient CVS. On-site restaurant was good. Putt-putt was a little pricey.
