Quiet clean and comfortable
By Bill from Orlando
Clean, no mildew AC. Mildew is a challenge in Florida of which this AC had no evidence. Terrific staff always making sure everything was OK. Always stating awareness of others waiting for their [More] turn at the front desk. Internet was VERY good with no obnoxious offer to upgrade that is quickly becoming the norm at other properties. No upgrade needed. Breakfast was outstanding for hotel fare where there is no real kitchen or special ordering. Rug in room and hallway on the edge for replacement or a good shampoo, at least. Chicklets size pillows, but comfy mattress. Would stay again. [Less]
Manager services
By Bismarck2814
Manager with good member recognition. I Have few issues at check in time and i spoke with th GM, he fix the problem! [Less]
Great Full Breakfast and super friendly staff!!
They have a wonderful breakfast complete with yogurt, eggs, bacon, pancakes, coffee, tea and much more! Their staff was super friendly and very accommodating. Rooms were clean and pillows are soft. [More] My only complaint is that the beds are not that comfy and are a bit on the stiff side. But other than that I would definitely come back! They are only 20 mins from Siesta beach. [Less]
1st visit and there will be many repeat visits!

I wanted to give this hotel five stars in all areas....however, five stars is perfection and there were just a few things that marred perfection. We made reservations due to a baseball tournament and [More] were bringing two 16 year old boys with us. We received a call on the way from Alainna, one of the managers, asking if we would like to change from our room to a king suite that had a sofa bed in an additional room. They needed our two queen bed room we originally had reserved. Kids liked the idea of shutting their own door and playing video games they brought, on their own TV in the King suite. Alainna allowed us to check in hours early which was very convenient, and she was very friendly. Upon arrival, the always access to coffee was a plus! Once we checked in the room, room 404, apart from a large unsightly stain on the rug in the King bed area, the room was definitely a perfect size to fit our needs. We noticed the separate sofa bed room seemed a little hot, but we had to leave for the tournament. After the tournament we arrived back and went to take showers. While husband was in the shower we noticed there was only one more towel. I had to place a call to the gentleman at the desk for more towels and he said he'd be right up. 30 minutes later no towels, so I took a shower with the last towel and hubby went downstairs to the desk to speak to the same gentleman, with the same request. About 30 minutes later, there were still no towels. This was almost an hour now, and we had two dirty boys waiting to shower and we weren't able to go out for dinner due to not being washed up. I called down again and got a woman this time and explained the situation. She apologized profusely and within 5 minutes, she brought the towels up herself! It was a manager and unfortunately I didn't get her name! She apologized again when she came up. When we came down to leave for dinner, the same blonde manager was at the desk that brought us the towels. She apologized AGAIN and stated she credited us one thousand points...for not receiving the towels in a proper time frame. Totally not her fault as she wasn't the one we spoke to twice, but it showed me once again that the management care about their guests. I wish I got her name to give her props! We went to dinner, came back, and boys played games. I called down for the desk asking for an extra blanket thinking the kids would need it (didn't know how wrong I was), and spoke to that same gentleman as with the towels. 30 minutes later- and its late now as I was half asleep, no blanket, so I sent my kids down to get it, which is something I should not have to do (just like the towel time). I do not blame this on management. Throughout the time the boys were awake in their den, we realized that the "den" was terribly hot, and it was not vented and only had something that resembled a bathroom vent fan in the ceiling which did nothing. Teenagers don't complain so we dealt with it (if I had to sleep there, I couldn't). Adults went to bed and I woke up at 2:15AM to check in on the boys. As I opened their door I could tell the room was a sauna. It was unbearable. The kids were asking if there was something that could be done- were contemplating bringing the sofa bed mattress out of the room. They decided to deal with it for the night. Early the next morning I went to the desk and the manager Dawn was there. I explained the situation...and she already confirmed that those suites do not have vented "den" rooms. Those rooms are best when using den as a den and not to sleep in, despite sofa bed. She immediately switched us to the best room in the hotel which was only four doors down!! That room is 408, which is a king room with an attached living area that has a dining table and small kitchenette. The best part was- it had two air conditioners!! One in the King room and one in the living area! Perfect!! Thank you Dawn!!!! Review about other aspects: 1- the pool: the boys enjoyed the pool. They were happy the water was a comfortable temperature and not freezing cold like many of the hotels we've stayed at. 2- the breakfast: I enjoyed that they had more than just pastries. They had egg and meat choices, and a pancake machine. The meat choices changed the next day. There was always someone coming and checking out the food station to either clean it or restock it. 3- I enjoyed that there was always decaf and regular coffee and tea for us 4- love that they had two elevators. We never had to wait for one, unlike other hotels. 5- love their location. They were by the two fields we had to play on, a Walmart, and many restaurants. 6- love that the management realized who we were each time we crossed their paths! Because of the friendliness, and the way they bend over backwards to make sure their customers were happy- I will be a return customer. We could be up there at most a weekend a month from June- December, and because of Alainna, the younger blonde manager, and Dawn...we will choose this hotel to stay at rather than one of the other hotels in the area. Because of them...I'm expecting a five-star review from me on my next visit!! (I wrote this review on another review website too) [Less]
great staff I always stay here they treat me like it is my family even better always try to help me. I feel save and comfortable and sometimes just do not want to leave my room housekeeping is [More] always trying to dottier best with any needs possible. I do not eat meat so the food selection is not the best but seems most like it. I am military so I get military discount which makes my stay affordable since I say for more than a week at times. I love the frog and microwave available and the bathroom soaps are nice the location is quite and yet easy accessible to I75 and other shops and food etc. [Less]
Super clean room and premises, friendly staff
By Mailen
We arrived in the late afternoon and check in to the hotel around 5:00, the front desk staff were very nice and checked us in within minutes. Our room was easy to find, the room was very clean, big, [More] bathroom ready with everything we needed. The beds were very comfortable, linens of good quality, pillows smooth, (we brought 2 from home and didn't use them), in the morning the breakfast was hot and plenty, as more guess came to eat, the staff was putting out more. My husband used the pool and it was clean, area around it also was clean ( he loved it). The parking lot was secure, plenty of lighting (we came back to our room almost at midnight) felt at easy walking around the parking lot. [Less]
Was a great experience...except!
By W&L2
Overall this was a great experience, however when checking in the clerk at the desk highly recommended the hotel restaurant as it had great food and a wonderful view of the beach so we were looking [More] forward to a wonderful evening that turned into the dinner from heck!! When we arrived we were seated right away and there were only about five tables being served so we figured we would be served soon. Not so. Our server stopped by reasonably soon and said that she would be with us in a moment which stretched to at least 10 minutes then when she did get to us she took our drink orders and said she would be right back. After an additional 15 minutes she came to take our order (still no iced tea) and apologized and got our drinks. She took our order which took about 15-20 minutes for our appetizer to come but was accompanied with our salads. No sign of our server to refill our drinks. Finally after stopping by twice to say our entrees would be out soon, it took at least 30 minutes to get to us. She kept apologizing for the delays and thanking us for our patience. All the while, two other tables came in, got their orders, ate and left before we got our entrees. There were two servers on duty for 5 tables so this was totally unacceptable. After listening to the server ask all of the other tables about dessert and coffee, I wondered if she would mention it to us. No...I had to ask about it even though it came with our meal!! She seemed genuinely surprised that we might want it. Each time she said she was going to check on something for us, I watched and she did not go to the kitchen but to the cash register to work on her receipts. When after waiting 15 minutes for our cake (this should have been a no brainer) and our server saying that she was going to go right away and get them but again did not go into the kitchen, my laid back husband who never complains said "enough...we're leaving" and went to the server (who was at the cash register) for our ticket. She insisted on getting our desserts to go...never even showed us a copy of our bill, just the total and it took another 10 minutes to get our change and to go dessert ( I had to ask for cutlery). Although the food was good, this is the worst service that I have ever received at a restaurant anywhere in the US and abroad! It really put a damper on our trip. We were there for well over 2 hours for a simple meal that was a daily special so should have been easy and the place was not at all busy. She obviously knew that we were upset as she kept apologizing but then ignoring us. I would highly recommend this hotel but not the restaurant!! [Less]
Welcome back!!
By Spaz
This is the 3rd time this year staying staying at the Holiday Inn Lido-Beach. We were greeted and recognized by Paul at the front desk. It was very comforting knowing we were back for another stay at [More] this friendly home away from home. Thank you Paul, and the support staff too, all very friendly. We also had dinner with the new chef, and dinner was very good in all aspects, servers, presentation,, atmosphere and food. The renovations are very nice. Thanks for another wonderful stay, and we look forward to our next visit and stay at the Holiday Inn Lido-Beach Thanks! Gayle IHG member for many years [Less]
