Great hotel experience right on the beach
So glad I stayed at the Holiday Inn at Lido Beach. The location is excellent - the beach and ocean is literally across the street. They give you beach towels. Free coffee all day and water cooler. The staff is very nice. Pool too. You can walk to Armand's circle for shops and restaurants and gelato!
this is a wonderful resort in s fabulous location: it has a great pool, and easy to get around. sarasota is a wonderful area,and this place is located in a great place I highly recommend it, especially at this time of the season
Location! Location! Location!
This hotel has a great location. It is directly across the street from an entrance to the beautiful Lido Beach. That made it easy to get to the beach. I really enjoyed my stay at this hotel. The retro decor is fun. Although it wasn't pool weather when I was there, the pool area was lovely, and the pool was inviting. It was a great place to watch the sunset while sipping a glass of wine from the bar. The bar had tasty flatbreads and homemade potato chips, along with other bar food. The room had comfy beds and a nice balcony. Although, I didn't have a beach view, the city view was pretty, and I caught a colorful sunrise. Reading previous reviews made me a bit worried about smelly tap water, but the odor was minor, and the water was drinkable for brushing teeth. The hotel provides free bottled water in the room, and fruit-infused water and plain water were available during the day. The "fruit water" was the best I've had -- really fruity! The one disappointment was that the new restaurant was open only four nights a week. I would have loved to have a full dinner with a view at the hotel Sunday night, but the restaurant was not open.
Perfect setting by the beach, shops and restaurants.
Though this hotel is a bit pricey it is worth it. The location is perfect just across the street from a beautiful beach and a few minutes from oodles of restaurants and shops. The rooms are large and comfortable with wonderful beds. The staff is friendly and very helpful. Breakfast buffet is delicious. So good that we don’t want to go home?
Beautiful setting, perfect location
Beachfront, full service hotel beautifully set on palm lined street. Short, easy walk to St Armands. Rooms are comfortable and well appointed. Updated furniture, fixtures, bedding. Bathrooms are a bit tired, but fine. Rooms have balconies that either face the beautiful beach or city. Plenty of included parking. Restaurant on top floor has amazing views. Pool side bar/restaurant is convenient. Towel service for beach and pool. Very friendly staff. Will come again. Perfect location
