    Fabulous

    Location, location, location! Right on beautiful beach. Close proximity to St. Armands Circle with complimentary bus shuttle (wonderful amenity). Liked kitchenette. Excellent staff. Relaxing setting with bar area around pool, sitting areas on ground levels, showers for late check-out people.

    Rooms a bit dated, worn (carpeting). But clean. A bit pricey.

    Fabulous

    Location was great for our stay. We could walk through the neighborhood, along the beach, down to the circle ...shopping or just window shopping, Boutiques, art, ice cream & chocolate! Restaurants or cafes. Everyone at the resort was very friendly & helpful -from housekeeping to the front desk. The room was in the older part of the resort, but the renovation was good. The kitchen was great - full size refrigerator, range top, microwave, coffee maker, dishes, etc...the works.

    We had a king size bed and we could feel the springs. When we arrived, we got something to eat, then went to Siesta Key to meet family. We were so tired the first night, we just thought that "age" was taking over. But both of us noticed the major difference between our mattress at home and the hotel. Rooms were limited that weekend so we endured.

    Very good

    First 2 days were a disaster -no hangers in room, no working TV, no TV remote, no clock or alarm,no trash cans, no Wi-Fi, but a nice view of the parking lot. Second 2 days in an up grade were flawless and made for a very pleasant 2 days and almost made up for the first 2 days.

    Fabulous

    We choose Lido Beach Resort as a get away vacation spot for a few days. The location was excellent with just a short stroll to restaurants shopping and the beach. I have only one suggestion and that would be that the hotel is in desperate need of an update.

    Just that it needs updating. The staff was very nice and the location excellent. We will return.

    Superb

    Great location, friendly & helpful staff. Very good food quality at restaurants.

    Structure is starting to show signs of aging. The bathroom sink had some cracks in it as well as the walls & floor tiles. Housekeeping was good but it seemed like they came late in the day.

    The staff was friendly and helpful. While this is an older facility, the room was quite large and had everything we needed. We would stay there again.

    Superb

    Location is perfect. Right on the beach. Amenities are good. Had a separate "adult" pool and spa. Nice Tiki bar. Plenty of chaise lounge chairs on the beach. Very responsive staff.

    Parking can be difficult. There appears to be plenty in their parking garage, but it is not convenient unless you are staying in the Tower.

    Excellent location, friendly staff, nice pool bar, good food at the bar, good size of the room and well equipped.

    Superb

    Location, location, location. Within walking distance of St. Armands Circle which is a great place to shop and eat. Close to the beach. Great poolside bar and great food.

    Little older hotel in the four story building anyways. Rooms clean but a little musty and bathroom tile floor was cracked and loose so instead of fixing it they threw a floor mat over tile.
