Outstanding location, clean, clean, clean. Carrie and Mark are super. We travel a lot and are always looking for a "Mom and Pop" value. This place is tops on our list. Stove, full size fridge, microwave, plenty of dresser space, quiet, and close to everything. You could spend $200-$300 a night easy and the only thing additional you would get is an in house restaurant ( and there are two within 3 short blocks. Thanks Carrie and Mark, we'll be back.

Add my kudos to the previous reviews. Spotlessly clean rooms, well-maintained grounds, Wifi, cable, kitchenette, very comfortable bed, and helpful friendly staff . . . and pets are accepted with refundable deposit. Located on a quiet side-street off the main road, just a quick walk to the beach. Excellent value. I will be back.

This property is old but is homey and clean and it's right down the street from Lido Beach. Beau Lindo reminded me of old Florida with a comfy hammock hanging between the trees and a shuffle board court right in the middle of the property. I know the price seems too good to be true...but it isn't. if you're on a limited budget, you won't do better the Beau Lindo.

Room Tip: Don't stay in room #1. There are security spotlights right outside your window!!

If you are looking for the BEST vacation , within a budget..Beau Lido is the place to go. The beach offers white powdery sand,calm emerald waters, concession stand, gift shop , access to community pool and its all just a 2 minute walk up the street from your room. If you are in the mood to shop till you drop, St. Armand's circle is just a short walk up the beautiful scenic streets leading out of Beau Lido. My daughter's and I rented a 1 bedroom apartment and could not have been happier. All the comforts of home were provided, clean sheets, towels, kitchen accessories, cable TV, even Wi-Fi...and if you have teens, you know this is important! Carrie, our hostess was very gracious and offered us anything we needed. She even mentioned that they serve a great breakfast at the beach and gave us a menu. We will definitely vacation here again!! Very laid back atmosphere...well worth your vacation dollars!

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.
