Location, location, location!
If you are planning a Florida vacation, I highly recommend the Holiday Inn @ Lido Beach. I'll start of by saying this place is not a resort. If that's what you are looking for, keep looking. It is relatively basic hotel with some minor condition issue common with a beach hotel. Being a Holiday Inn, it is dependably clean, quiet, and reasonably priced. The staff was pleasant and professional. Paul at the front desk gave us dead-on dinner recommendations. What made this hotel a great choice is its location. It is on one of the prettiest beaches I've seen in Florida. There was a ton of wildlife. We watched dolphins from the shore and sting rays race in between swimmers. The water was clear and clean looking. Just beautiful! The hotel is also within easy walking distance of a pretty boutique shopping district. Lots of great dinning options, and every meal we had there was delicious! It was great to enjoy ourselves and not have to worry about parking or driving home. The hotel was decent, but we will come back for the location. A microwave and fridge in the room would have been great, as eating out every meal is expensive and not particularly healthy. The hotel dinning area looked only so-so and we went elsewhere. Spring a few extra dollars for an ocean side balcony. The view was amazing!
