Ok folks this is not the Ritz, but there arewo close bye just add a few dollars per night for your stay. You are getting what you pay for here, a room at a very reasonable rate, some kitchens and the place could be cleaner, but all in all the place was OK in a quit safe residential neighborhood. The...

This is a wonderful place to stay. The beautiful Lido beach is right around the corner and Dot who works there couldn't be nicer. It's not your typical hotel with a front desk and room service but that's what makes it so interesting. It's a self serve, clean, safe place. The rooms come with everything you need and the best...

Very clean with nice beds and linens. It is right across the street from the public beach. We also walked to St Armands Circle as well which is close by. Nice sitting area out front. The staff is very friendly. We stayed in the two bedroom which was very large. It was very relaxing and the atmosphere was set up... More

We had a great stay here!!! We stayed in the 1 bedroom upstairs...the full kitchen was a bonus and the living space was very spacious. You can't beat the location...one block from the beach and close to the shops. Everyone was so friendly. We will definitely be back next year.

We liked the relaxet and romantic sphere and the size of the apartment, i liked the possiblity of using stuff other guest left behind.(parasols and sunchairs) It was the only hotel we had who really did something for the enviroment (soting paper and glas) When we arrived the bathroom was (by mistake? ) not so clean, but we were so...

This review is a long time coming, since we stayed here in May of 2009. My friend was getting married in the area, and instead of shelling out way too much for rooms at the Holiday Inn (which is in walking distance if you need to meet up with anyone there), my girlfriend and I plus two other couples decided...

The Lido Islander was a great place for our family vacation this summer. The location was great, walking distance to Lido Beach and St. Armands, and the rooms were clean. We enjoyed the full kitchen in our suite. We the price was very reasonable for what we got, a 1 bedroom condo/apartment style room. Lido Beach is great and we... More

Lido Islander is a great value. We had the guest room, and I must say I read the reviews prior to our visit and was concerned about the room size, but as soon as we saw the room it was fine for us. The reviews on the size is correct, but the room was very clean, the amenditities in the... More

Lido Beach is my most favorite place in the entire world! I was looking for a way to extend my stay without having to pay some of the higher prices out there. Over the many times I've stayed on Lido during these past 19 years, I cant believe I missed out on this place. First and foremost, the Lido Islander... More

Lido Islander is perfect. Everything you need. The location is fantastic. We loved using the grill in the cute and relaxing garden area. You are surrounded by million dollar homes, you feel very secure. Great location. Rode bikes most of the time. Kitchen very well furnished. Very private. Great for a couple or a couple with 1 or 2 kids.... More
