Great place to stay inexpensively. Provides the option of cooking at home, therefore not always needing to eat at restaurants. However it is also a quick walk into a town where there are a lot of good places to eat and shop.

We were travelling on a budget this year and booked the Lido Islander guest room because the price seemed cheap and the photos on the website looked nice. However, we were disappointed when we saw the room. It was very small and cramped. As the amenities had listed a microwave, fridge, toaster oven etc, I had expected a small kitchenette.... More

I booked our stay at the Lido based on its close proximity to St. Armand's circle. We were only in town with my folks for the one night and wanted good area for shopping/eating within walking distance. The Lido was great! In a beautiful residential neighborhood of very nice homes just a couple of blocks from the beach and the... More

My fiance and I stayed in a one bedroom and were very comfortable. Our unit was next to a "guest room" and if I had to give one piece of advice it would be DON'T BOOK A GUEST ROOM!! It's literally a bed with a foot of space on each side. Our one bedroom however was very spacious. There were... More

The location is very convenient - very short walking distance from the beach. I stayed in the 1 br studio and was quite pleased, the studio was clean, free of bugs, furnished with all the basics, i.e. - sofa bed, comfortable king size bed, cable tv (2), alarm radio, reading materials, internet access, fully equipped kitchen with coffee maker, stove,...

After looking for hours for a decent, not too expensive hotel (even on Priceline), I nearly gave up until I discovered the Lido Islander. Room rates were extremely reasonable and the location was perfect! We booked a single room. Granted it was tight (barely room to walk around), it was just what we needed. Bathroom was clean. Bed was quite... More

The hotel is dated and a bit messy. We were upgraded from a very small room to a large studio with kitchen since it was available. The price was great, but upon entering the kitchen several small roaches ran for cover on the stove and near the sink. Realizing we are in Florida, we tried to overlook the bugs and... More

My husband and I spent this past weekend at the Lido Islander. We reserved a guest room for 3 nights, for about $165.00 total. The room was a bit small compared to a standard hotel room, it felt more like a bedroom. It was very clean. The sheets were a little worn, but again, very clean. (They do not offer... More

We have stayed here three times, and have got the one bedroom, two bedroom, and the guest room. Do not rent the guest room! It is a room with a bed, and two feet on each side of it. The other two rooms were fine. If you are a value travler you will love this place. It is dirt cheap... More
