The Holiday Inn Lido Beach was conveniently located across the street from the luscious sands of Lido Beach and a short walk to the bustling and beautiful shops and restaurants of St. Armands. Customer service at this hotel was exceptional when ever it was needed by me. The room was a standard three star hotel room with a bathroom that met basic standards, including a few toiletry items like shampoo, etc. The safe in the closet was in an awkward position to access and after a few days the lock stopped working. Tyler from maintenance was on the scene immediately. Pounding by a rubber mallet was effective in opening the safe preventing the need to burn a hole in the safe. Not being able to retrieve my wallet out of the safe delayed my evening excursion by an hour which the hotel compensated by giving my room mate and me a $25 coupon for breakfast but only after our request for compensation. The pool area was comfy enough. The hotel provided yellow beach towels for the beach and pool areas, in the room upon our arrival. Cable TV and wifi in rooms are free. Beach chairs are available on a first come first serve basis, stored by the front desk which you help yourself to by giving your name and room number to the front desk. Only one day of my stay was there a chair for me at the time I went to the beach. Fortunately the sand is so clean and luscious that lying on a beach towel was fine for me. There was a gentleman right at the beach entrance renting chairs and umbrellas ($7/$12). If you are looking for luxury, this Holiday Inn is not it, however if you want good customer service, and a clean and comfortable room, in a quiet location (February 20th) you will be pleased.
