Positive Reviews

Stunning Views of the Gulf A Plus

Most of the rooms come with lovely, spacious balconies, which are going to offer you stunning views of the Gulf. You can head out here to soak in some of the lovely surrounding scenery or watch the sun set.

Only A Short Walk from It All

Whether you want to go out somewhere to grab a bite to eat or venture out for some shopping, you will be nice and close to it all. St. Armands Circle is only a few steps away, giving you instant access.

Beach Is Right There

The beach will be right at your fingertips, meaning you can get there in no time. All you need to do is head outside of the hotel's doors and you will have your toes in the sandy shores in no time.

Negative Reviews

Always Have Construction Going On

Because Holiday Inn Sarasota Lido Beach is constantly working to better itself, you will find there is usually a lot of construction going on here. This can be disturbing for everything from your sleep to your overall comfort.

Breakfast Isn't the Best

Though there is a breakfast served here, you will find it's not the best quality. The food is usually cold and not that great, so you may want to go elsewhere.

Air Conditioning Can Be Strange

Since the air-conditioning units are older here, some of them are missing parts or various pieces. So, they may not do the best job of keeping things cool.
