“Filthy, old, falling apart!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2012

We stayed in the "upgraded" two bedroom house. The couches were black, no exageration, had to put sheets over them from the beds, and at that point your worried about them too.
Went to look for a plug, moved the dresser out and the dirt/dust was thick layer. Everything needs painting and repair. Windows that were once are boarded up, it is a maze of disrepair!

I dont know if other rooms are like this one, but to see Trip Advisor awards on office door is amazing considering what we saw?

Sorry, but you need to clean it up, paint and fix.

Room Tip: Stay somewhere else OR before you pay check out the room!!!!! Please

This is a clean, older motel a short walk from the beach. If you want high-style, definitely stay somewhere else. But if you like the old Florida vibe and just want a clean, comfortable, and reasonably priced place a short walk from a great beach, you'll love this.

Being born and raised in Florida, there are few places that remind me of how it used to be and Beau Lido is one of them. Thanks for a true Florida feel and hominess. Very Clean and with everything we needed for our stay and more. I was here for a conference but look forward to returning for a visit to take advantage of the comfort, relaxation and ease of access to the beach. Plus we will take full advantage of the effeciencies that are so well equipped.
Additionally, proximity of shops and restaurants made our stay wonderful. Thank you
Beau Lido.

We booked late looking for a place to stay close to the beach to meet some old friends and couldn't have been happier. Checked in early :)) thanks and beach was across the street. Our friends were just up the road so the location was perfect. Great old fla style room, clean and very friendly staff. Will definitely be back again.

You almost never see anyone and office hours are limited, but nothing went wrong. Secret competence. Fridge, microwave, stove, silverware, china, casual furniture, outdoor chairs, tables, hammock and clothesline. Short walk to the beach. Pet friendly. Cash damage deposit for pet required coordination with manager Carrie because of limited office hours but she worked around us and it was cheerfully refunded. Some outdoor stuff was rusting and cracked but this didn't get in our way. We had an extremely comfortable and private stay and we wouldn't hesitate to return.

Room Tip: No room tips, but a good directions tip is to turn onto Coolidge from Boulevard of the Presidents an...

Our group has rented out the entirety of Beau Lido suites for at least one week every year for the past nineteen years. The rooms are clean, the price is right, the location is great and the staff is friendly. The rooms have very basic furnishings and the beds and linens are adequate. Doors, some windows and patio furniture have been replaced, and several rooms had kitchen updates just a few years ago. There are different types of rooms to accommodate for various needs. Many rooms are definitely showing their age and they may want to think about more cosmetic touch-ups in the near future. For example there are some broken tiles in the bathroom of room 7. The kitchenettes are stocked with some pots, pans and utensils to prepare meals. We did have an unfortunate occurrence with the air conditioning ceasing to function in three of our rooms (1,2 and 3) after hours, which created a bit of a headache. Carrie was prompt in addressing the problem and the issue was resolved as soon as possible the next morning. She is fantastic and has always taken care of us over the years. Other than this hiccup, the A/C units make the rooms very comfortable in the Florida heat. The set-up of the property gives a feeling of community to the suites. Since there is quite a bit of open space we’ve always wondered if the owners have considered putting in a pool. Overall, if you are looking for a basic, clean, affordable room, within close proximity to beach and shopping, this is a good place to be.

The rooms were very clean. The original room we booked, the AC was not working properly, but Carrie, Project Manager, did not hestitate to move us to a larger room with better AC,. The twin/king bed was very uncomfortable, if you would invest in a descent pillow top or mattress pad it would be FANTASTIC.

What definately made it all worth it was Carrie. She was fantastic, kept the grounds very nice and neat and was extremely helpful with all our needs.

Would consider coming back if the beds were more comfortable.
