Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Nancy Ann No one tried to make an "Impact on my stay"
No ammenites besides free internet, I think the staff could be friendlier, I think the room we were in was a bit
messy - bugs in the bathroom two nights, there could be a happy hour, etc... considering what we are paying per night, I was disappointed this time.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by joe the internet guy very slow internet
they advertise high speed internet, I paid big money for a night and the internet was so slow I had to leave the premises for many hours, I was there when the blizzard hit, I had to rebook my rental car and flights, at another location because there internet would not work, I wrote to the Holiday Inn about the problem, they apoligized and said the problem was because of renovation, they also turned the water off the whole day from 9 till 5 and I paid big money a night, I guess I am the fool, they made their money, and my vacation was ruined jan25th thru Jan 26th 2015 theses are facts dont let the Holiday Inn tell you any different, but they did apoligize, lol they will never have to apoligize again lol you get it

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by dasum Another pleasant stay
We have stayed here a few times over the years and enjoy the ocean views. The staff are now more friendly and the upgraded rooms are now very appealing. We had a corner room on the 3rd floor which was small but comfortable. The dining room has benefited from a makeover and the food is better than two years ago.
It was lovely to see Krystina is still working there in the restaurant as she is genuinely friendly and helpful. The manager Kym was also delightful.
Our stay was interupted by a fire evacuation which was handled well.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by MikeB68 comfortable bed
The bed was very comfortable for sleeping, but the room was much too small for the purposes of the stay. The bathroom was very clean and up to date, but also very small and inefficient.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Sgt. Lido Beach
The hotel has excellent Gulf Views and a nice pool which overlooks the Gulf. The beds were comfortable and the maid service was good. it is walking distance to St. Armens Circle with great shopping and restaurants and is a short drive to Downtown Sarasota. Walks on the beach are great. We have always enjoyed our stays there. The front desk response to our concerns could have been better. Particularly the complaint about the construction at 8:30 in the morning. jack Hammers or drills are not a great way to wake up. Fortunately it was for only one morning of a week stay.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Fooled again The best place to stay on Lido Beach
My family and I stay at the Holiday Inn Lido every Christmas because of it location and great views. An easy walk to St Armand's Circle and all of its great shops and restaurants. Lots to do or a great place to kick back and relax.
The staff was wonderful as always.
