The place certainly is unique. No desk or anything, but it wasn't needed. Just pick letter with room number up in a mailbox. Problem was mailbox was on 2nd floor. I had requeasted 1st floor room. My husband and I both have medical issues which made going upstairs difficult.. Our room? 2nd floor. Well, with the help of another guest,... More

My Wife and I stayed here on Wednesday, June 25, 2014. On the down side, like many older establishments, the walls were thin in our guest room. If there are kids around, which there were, you might want to adjust the romance accordingly. On the plus side, the room that we had was SPOTLESS! The Queen Bed and pillows were... More

This property has an excellent location and I could not help but notice that there had been some updating in the suite. Someone had done a great job of decorating and updating the suite but the problem is that the maintenance (housekeeping) has done a poor job of keeping the property maintained. It's a shame to see the hard work... More

Lido Islander was the perfect place to stay! When you first pull up, you may be a bit skeptical as we were...but once we walked into our room- we were pleasantly surprised. We were in the one bedroom condo which includes a king size bed, bathroom, full kitchen, living room, and dining area. This was just the amount of space... More

This is a perfect place to stay when vacationing in Sarasota. A few blocks from St. Armand's Cricle, literally around the corner from the most perfect little spot of Lido Beach. Great sand, clear water, small personal beach. The place itself was very nice. Comfortable bed and couches, a full kitchen, and a clean bathroom. We really felt at home... More

The drive alone is worth the visit, one home after another was breathtaking. The view crossing the bridge is magical. The building itself is modest, much cuter on the inside than appears on the outside. But once inside, this place comes to life with the feeling of "beach cottage and stay ~a~ while" life! The bed is a Cali king... More

Great location out of the realm of normal touristy hotels. It was a short walk to all of the great shops and restaurants of St. Armand's Circle and a short walk to the beach the other direction. Situated in a beautiful neighborhood, the Lido Islander is a hidden gem.

The area is very nice however our unit was not. As in the other reviews blinds don't work lamps were partially broken etc... Two things really bothered us, we could hear everything in the room next to ours and the worst was the work area outside our kitchen window that did not close. The nice cleaning sets up shop right...

The towels are shabby; the blinds are broken; there is dirt behind the blind in the bathroom. The description said steps to the beach"; I never expected to walk 3 blocks! Pay attention to the reviews.
