Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Lido Beach
Never having been to Anna Maria Island, Longboat Key, Lido Beach before, we were a little amazed that there really are not that many hotels on the beach. But, we did find a great one at the Holiday Inn, Lido Beach. They are in the process renovating some of the floors. We had a suite on the 7th floor which offered the four of us plenty of stretching out room. And the Holiday Inn is only a five minute walk to St. Armand's Circle. And also is across the street from the Beach. Their restaurant is also on the 7th floor, all windows overlooking the beach and Gulf. Gorgeous view and breakfast was wonderful!
My only thought on our room would be it is in need of renovations for the price charged, esp the bathroom, and sunblocking drapes that did not meet to close (I taped them). But overall, it was lovely!

The hotel is under a major renovation process and the noise was more than I would have hoped. I didn't realize the hotel was going through this remodel when I booked and that may have altered my choice of where I stayed. The location and nearby area was beautiful so it offset some of the minor issues with the hotel itself.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Markypc3 Great Location and Helpful Staff
Located right across from the beach with the cafeteria on the penthouse level entirely surrounded with glass windows, its a great view and a walkable distance to the water and boutique shops in the area. Staff was helpful with getting me everything I needed, including complementary brand name toothpaste and deodorant in place of what I couldn't take with me on the flight due to TSA's rules.
