Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by MATJR Perfect location to Lido Beach and Armand Circle
Great Location. Walk outside, walk across the street and you are on the sand! The beach was in fantastic condition and the water was warm and clear. Armand Circle is basically two blocks away. No need to get in the car the whole trip. Just walk the beach and walk Armand Circle at night! Perfect weekend getaway!

Beautiful hotel, newly renovated. Front desk welcome person was outstanding and helpful. We celebrated our anniversary here, as we have done before, and thoroughly enjoyed our visit.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Lexie06 Great memories again overlooking the Gulf.
We enjoyed this facility so much last year we decided to
come back again. The upgrades were a pleasant new
feel. The ENTIRE staff has been great each visit. The
view off the gulf, the sun downs, the dining room overlooking the gulf. Our room was neat and clean when we arrived and was that way each evening when we came back to the room. Great stay and when the opportunity presents itself that we can come back to
the Sarasota area we will be back.

Holiday Inn Lido Beach is in the PERFECT location for exploring Lido Key and Sarasota! Located directly across the street from the gorgeous beach, it is great access for sunning, and walking along this stretch of gulf coast.
It's a easy walk to the trendy St. Armand's Circle for shopping, dining or people watching too.
Hotel has had a recent upgrade making the rooms cheery and bright. Well appointed with nice linens, comfy beds and balconies (best if Gulf Front!)
Good value for the money.

Had to book a room unexpectedly and was pleasantly surprised to find such a lovely room, clean, comfortable and beautifully decorated. We had a dinner served in our room and the service and food were excellent.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DebbieDee Excellent couple of nights at the beach!
Stayed at this hotel two years ago, same week. Hotel has been renovated and is very nice. If you do stay here, treat yourself to the sunset dinner on the 7th floor! Spectacular floor to ceiling windows with a full view of the beach. On top of that, the riibeye with bleu cheese was most excellent! Great flavor! Also, the breakfast buffet with omelet station was also really great! We saw dolphins over in the gulf both while we were eating breakfast, and later that evening from our balcony facing beach! I had a nice surprise waiting for me in my room for my birthday from the manager, Kara Kelsey. Kara, thank you so much for the treat and the nice note! You really went above and beyond :) We hung out at the pool some and at the beach some. We enjoyed drinks at the tiki bar and the happy hour appetizers. We think that if the hotel cooked burgers and hot dogs on a grill poolside that they would sell quickly in addition to the other food they sell on the menu, but it would be more readily available than waiting on food to come from the kitchen on the 7th floor. We got the chicken nachos one day, and they were cold by the time we got them. The only other criticism we had was the dining room was slow seating both times we were there, and breakfast had slow service. This is a great location for a relaxing time, with plenty of amenities, and lots to do in the area or close by. Room cleanliness could have been better, as I found long dark hairs in the bed (not ours!). Fruit-infused water available in the lobby is a nice touch.

Overall, very good. Sunday brunch was excellent. Pillows a little too soft for my taste, but that's about the worst thing I can say. Heheh.
