    Great location close to beach obviously but also nummerous shops and restaurants.

  • Group of friends

    I did not like the policy of the hotel to charge against my credit card an excessive amount to cover my possible stay at the hotel and then later charge a lesser amount. In the interval of four days my daily credit was limited on the card was limited. In the case of my foreign guest the first amount was actually charged to their bank account and to this date we do not know if that first amount has been an erased or not. On his bank account he has been charged both, that is the original for a greater amount plus the actual bill. He for the moment four days later has paid some $400 more to the hotel than actually owed. Even if returned it does not seem to be proper. The card was originally at check given as a guarantee of payment but no permission was given to charge any amount, it appears that it is like blank check signed over to the hotel to take out all the money in ones bank account at your pleasure. I would recommend your hotel only with caution.

    Convenient to beach and St Armands Circle

    Dated.

  • Group of friends

    Lovely position overlooking the beach

    The hotel fixtures and decor are looking rather dated and worn and for a double room costing $258 inc breakfast and taxes we thought that was really quite high. The breakfast was also very basic.

  • Family with children
    6.6

    The staff were very good, especially Chuck the server in the restaurant

    I am baffled. The hotel is in the best location possible opposite the Gulf of Mexico. However the hotel decor is tired. Flaking paint and shabby fittings let it down the aircon in our room 504 was ancient and very noisy. Spend some money Holiday Inn!!

    Excellent location! Beautiful view on to the sea and the sunset.

    Room was dirty and looked quite old. It seems, that the Holiday Inn Sarasota-Lido Beach does not invest anything in their Hotel and counts on its top location. This does not last for ever.

    The rooms were lovely. We were in a two queen beds and a balcony overlooking the Gulf. Everything was very comfortable and extremely quiet. There was a wedding party staying on our floor and we were worried about noise etc. but we didn't hear a thing. The Hotel was very clean.

    I think all motel/hotel rooms should be furnished with a small refrigerator, a small microwave, and definitely fans in all the bathrooms. We were able to request a small refrigerator for medication purposes..

    excellent location near beach and st amards circle have stayed many times

  • Couple

    The location of the hotel is fantastic as well as the view from the rooms if you choose ocean view. The front desk is very helpful and professional, easy check-in and check-out. The pool area is nice. Sarasota is a nice little town.

    The hotel is dated and that makes the value for money pretty low. The cleanliness in general is well below average of a hotel in this price category.

  • Older travelers

    Location excellent, view from room and restaurant is beautiful.

    The hotel is run down need updating.

    Hotel was right across the street from the beach and within walking distance of town. All the staff was very friendly. The view from the rooftop restaurant was beautiful. The beds were very comfortable and the room was very clean.

    They let us check in early and gave us a room with a beautiful sea view when we had paid for a city view. Lovely balcony.
