We stayed here for two nights (January 21-22, 2017). We were pleasantly surprised with the room. We had a front room facing the beach. The views were amazing and the room was very clean. It truly exceeded our expectations. The staff was exceptionally friendly. Would recommend this hotel to anyone.

We stayed here as part of our 45th Wedding Anniversary trip, a place we had stayed years ago on another anniversary trip. It is an older Holiday Inn, rooms are small and a bit dated., but our gulf view balcony made up for that! We loved our stay, as it is such a beautiful beach, with quick beach access, just...

We spent two wonderful days at this hotel in early February. After scouring the internet for a good hotel on the beach in Sarasota I chose the Holiday Inn @ Lido Beach. It's always hard to get a good mental picture of an area without ever having seen it before so I was a bit nervous about my choice. I...

I would concur with other reviewers that this hotel has a prime location. The rooms are "standard issue" for Holiday Inn, but our room and the entire property were extremely clean. Amenities may not be fancy, but again, no complaints because everything from towels to K-cups were well stocked. Every staff member we encountered was very friendly and always seemed...

Sisters trip to Florida and stayed in a 6th floor beach view room. The balcony was a great spot to enjoy a sunset. Staff was super. We ordered room service pizza one night and were pleased that we had. I would definitely go back and would recommend this hotel.

We arrived at 10:00am and Donna said our room was ready. We are Platinum so we got a free upgrade to a gulf view room with a balcony. Everything was absolutely perfect! Also, we got a 2:00pm check out the next day because of our status. I enjoyed the outdoor pool at 7:00 am and did my morning laps. This...

We booked a room with a Gulf view here, and it did not disappoint- ocean front with a balcony and a wonderful view of the sunset. We asked for a high floor and were kindly accommodated, but the views are probably good from any floor, unless you end up closer to the pool behind the palm trees. The room itself...

There are way more negatives than positives about this hotel. The positives: Nice, friendly staff with good service. The location across from the beach. Walking distance to St. Armands Circle. Room was clean. Keurig coffee maker. Now the negatives: If there were upgraded rooms as other reviewers wrote about, we must not have been in one of them. The bathroom...

This hotel is excellent, we had a room with a gulf view, all the staff in the hotel were very professional and very helpful. The breakfast and dinner were top quality especially the dinner menu which had an excellent choice and servings were generous. The rooms were very comfortable, in fact we couldn't fault anything. Four or five minutes walk...

My husband was here on business for the first part of the week. Myself and my two little ones met him for the end of the week and weekend. We couldn't have asked for better service or people.
