Great little hotel A review of Holiday Inn Sarasota - Lido Beach
We stayed at this hotel for 5 nights. They were doing some remodeling, so it was a little noisy during the day for my son napping, but overall was very nice. Not much for kids to do on the island, it was cold a couple of days and we had a hard time keeping our 8 and 2 yr old occupied, but that isn't the hotels fault. I found the front desk personnel to be friendly and helpful. The food up on the 7th floor was great!!! Beautiful view of the ocean while you are dining also. Wait staff very nice, our food took a little long one night, we didn't say anything, but asked for our bill and the waiter told us not to worry about it, that it took too long that it was on him. It was one of the best meals we had on the island. Good presentation of the food as well.
The price was a little high for what I thought of a Holiday Inn, but it was peak season. My only complaint was the carpet in the rooms was pretty dirty, we had to keep our shoes on or our feet would be dirty.
The windows in the room could use a cleaning on the outside.Maid service cleaned the room very nice daily. Would return again, especially at a lower price.
