We have gone to Sarasota the past seven years. This was our first stay at the Beau Lido and we thorougly enjoyed it. The rooms are clean, beds comfortable and facilities in good repair. The grounds are nicely manicured, providing lots of room to relax. Carrie, the housekeeping/caretaken, is a hard working individual who made our stay pleasurable. We met other very interesting guests, all whom commented on the quietness and cleaniness of the facilities. Located within a short distance of Lido Beach and St. Armand's Circle are other pluses. We definitely will be returning in the future. It is easy to see why the Beau Lido gets so many repeat clients.

Room Tip: It depends on the family configuration. We stayed in the "Standard Roonm" which is plenty big for a couple.

This was our 4th stay, and as always - lovely. Understand one thing: This is "Old Florida" lodging. i.e.: appears to have stood still in the 1960s (which is one of the charming things about it). VERY well kept, and CLEAN, CLEAN, CLEAN. The staff couldn't be more gracious, and Carrie (your contact) is wonderfully accomodating.
It is one of the quietest places you'll ever stay, and you can hear the gulf waves off in the distance (on the other side of another building across the street). Located in a quiet, residential neighborhood just a block off the beach, it is well lit at night and very secure and safe. (we never lock up our bicycles).
Plenty of chairs and lounges to soak up the sun. No pool, but the beach is just a block away!

Negatives: Could use a few simple upgrades to enhance the guest experience: i.e. new cloth shower curtains and curved rods would really make a difference in the bathrooms. Our room had a broom to clean the terrazo floors, but no dust pan. Iron, but no ironing board. There is no one available to address this type of thing in outside of 11:am to about 5:00 pm, so check your room and address "issues" during these hours. Beds are VERY firm (hard), and if you want a king you'll get two twins pushed together with a nice hard mattress ridge down the middle of the bed. This could be addressed with the addition of a simple foam mattress pad, but would be another expense for the owners.
Note: if you stay in room 1 or 2, you will wait at least 15 minutes for the hot water to reach you. Know this ahead of time if you are in a hurry to get showered and out the door. But, once the hot water is there, it is plentiful and readily available.

The property (landscape) is very well groomed.

Have never seen a bug in our room in all the times we've stayed there.

We consider the Beau Lido a first choice when visiting the Sarasota area for convenience to the beach, St. Armands Circle, and value.

Room Tip: The "deluxe" rooms are worth the extra $ for the amount of room you get and proximity to the hot water source.

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!!
