Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Aleliz Perfect location, pet friendly
We really enjoyed staying at Holiday Inn Lido Beach. The beach is right across the street. We had an ocean front room and the view was amazing. We could see the ocean from our bed. The hotel is pet friendly so we were able to bring our little dog. Staff is very nice and helpful. Only 10 minutes walking distance from restaurants and shops.
Rooms can use a little upgrade but other than that this is a great hotel.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DoDad Beautiful View to the Beach!
We took a quick overnight break and Lido Holiday Inn was our choice. It was a great hotel. Our beach view room was great and quiet.
I have stayed in many Holiday Inn and Expresses and this one ranked one the best for friendly staff.
Did have one problem with our balcony not being cleaned when room was clean. They came up promptly and corrected the problem.
This Holiday Inn is a little dated but going through some very nice renovations and will be even better than ever.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Aging Cajun your allergies are your problem
the shampoo , conditioner and lotion provided were some sort of coconut and lime concoction.
glad I looked before i washed my head...I am allergic to coconut...cannot eat it or put it on my skin.
asked housekeeping and the front desk for an alternative...I was told there was none. The staff did not lift a finger to help me resolve the problem.
no place to buy any within walking distance of the hotel. had to catch a ride with another guest to buy shampoo at a drug store several miles away.
These folks put the spit in hospitality.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Cathy44 Excellent View & Location
My 8 year old daughter and I stayed at the Holiday Inn last weekend, after we visited the Ringling Museum. We were upgraded to the 7th floor with a spectacular view. Although the hotel and room were a little dated and worn, the bed was very comfortable and the view was spectacular. The hotel is in a great location, close to St. Armand Circle & the beach is steps away. We drove over from the east coast of FL for a mini-vacation. I would stay at this hotel again. The man at the front desk was very pleasant and helpful!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bob - RWJ Great Stay - Bed Lamp Inoperable
Had a wonderful week at the Holiday Inn. Great sunset views of the Gulf from our balcony. Only negative - When we checked in, the overhead lamp on my bed did not work. Contacted the front desk and a serviceman was prompt to fix it - the lamp was unplugged underneath the queen size bed.

My husband and I wanted a nice weekend getaway. The hotel was just across the street. We had a very nice balcony room over looking the beach, which was excellent. The restaurant was on the top floor and we had dinner and breakfast, food and service was excellent. Breakfast buffet included an omelet station which was absolutely wonderful!! The rest of the buffet offered everything and then some. The pool water temperature, cleanliness and everything just excellent. The staff were all very nice, friendly and smiling. Shopping and more dining was just a short walk (for those that like to walk) but just a few minutes by car for those like my husband and I.
The hotel is being renovated and although a little outdated it was VERY clean and smelled fresh and clean. I will take outdated over a more modern hotel that isn't as clean any day.
Definitely recommend it and definitely when another weekend getaway is in our plan this hotel will be it!!!
