Building was obviously older, but unit was clean and decorated nicely decorated with a beach theme. It was only a short walk to Lido Beach and St Armand's Circle. With two bedrooms, one bath, a small kitchen, and living room, we got a lot of space for the money.

My fiancé and I went for a weekend in January and really enjoyed our stay. We had one of the bottom suites and it's nothing fancy, but clean and walking distance to the beach and St. Armand's Circle. We loved being able to walk up for meals and enjoyed the art show that was going on. I would definitely stay... More

It was a great trip until I get home and realize I was missing a pair of diamond earring and a leather Coach clutch. I can't prove anything but I believe my belongings were stolen. We locked the door everytime we left our room. If you are going to stay here, leave your valuables in your locked car.

Our room was very clean. The rooms all needed to be updated as they were very old. Our friends stayed next to us and their mattress was really saggy and old. My friends mother stayed in a different section and it was several streets away and she was unhappy to be so far and said the room was very small... More

My friend and I stayed here for 3 nights in April and everything was completely satisfactory. The location in an upscale residential area is unbeatable; you can walk to the beach and Armand Circle in a few minutes and you feel safe doing it night or day. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. They have beach chair... More

Based on the description and a few pictures on the Expedia website I was expecting an upscale lodging in the resort area of Lido Beach. What I got was a sardine sized room in a pseudo B&B that needed a serious upgradte from the flophouse decor and almost non existent amenities. When we had to provide our own Kleenex, shampoo...

I am not super picky and totally subscribe to the "you get what you pay for". I didn't expect that this place would be fancy based on the price compared to other rooms in the area. But our room was SO SO dirty. Not just the kind of dirty that happens from a few guests but deep down dirty. I... More
