We stayed in a guest room about three years ago and had reservations about it, as previously reviewed. This time we stayed in a one bedroom suite and it made all the difference. Clean and prettily decorated, just a short walk from the beach and St. Armand's Circle, short drive to the nearest large supermarket. If you want on-site facilities...

This is not a hotel or a resort. It is a large building broken into various-sized units. Thus, it has no services like a hotel: no ice, no office, no fax, no bellman, no pool, no restaurant, no bar, etc. If this is what you want, great, but if it's not, then pay attention. It seems like a nice quiet...

Although, the Lido Islander may not offer all the services of a larger hotel, we do provide a wide range of clean affordable rooms at a price well below the hotels in our area that do provide those services. Our rooms range from the small and affordable Guest Rooms to 1, 2 and 3 bedroom apartment suites. Our suites are...

We just got back from our vacation and this is our 2nd time staying here. My husband and I love this place! We feel like we have our own little apartment. I can only comment on the 1 bedroom...its clean and very spacious. The location is key here...walking distance to the beach and the shops. We're not fancy people but...

Great room at a great price. This place is about a 5 min. walk to lido key beach and less than 5 min walk to St. Armand's circle. Very clean and updated. Wasn't sure how it would go with many rooms right together and no office on site, but we had no problems with noise and check in was a...

We stayed during our time in Sarasota. Location was very convenient. Clean and cozy. My only complaint would be we book for family and there was no bedding provided for the pull-out bed.

I was very impressed and happy with the Lido Islander. It's in the perfect location, really close to the beach and close to St. Armand's circle. The room was very clean, and had a comfortable atmosphere. Great value for a great place! Will definitely be coming back

When we first arrived at the Lido Islander Inn and Suites we had booked into the main building. As we pulled in we had a, "Uh-oh..." look at each other as there was a big wedding party on one of the balconies. No sleep that night, we thought. Fortunately for us the owner had overbooked our room and we were...

I booked the Lido Islander for a night to do a photo shoot around the area and it was definitely more than I expected. We had a two bedroom, it was clean and comfortable and homey. It is also an excellent value. They are located in a very safe and beautiful area which is close to everything (beach, shopping, dining...

We enjoyed our stay at the Lido Islander. Very close to the beach, shopping & restaurants. A nice change from the bigger motel/hotel types. Quiet & peaceful... We would stay here again!
