For the price, good place to stay if you're looking for the basics. Dated rooms and furnishings as well as thin walls were you hear everything your fellow tenants are doing. Location to beach and tourist related activities is ideal which makes up for the rooms. Overall, a good stay for what you pay..

The perfect example of BEST customer service ever! We made the reservation for the following day by mistake and they managed to switch us to a studio without charging any fee! We drove 3 hours to get there so I can honestly say that they saved our lives! We were pleasantly surprised by the location, just one block away from the beach. The terrace and garden was BEAUTIFUL, full of butterflies and flowers. The kitchen, bathroom, bed and sofa bed were 5 stars. I would definitely recommend this hotel if you want a pleasant and relaxed stay at Lido Key. Also, they offer bicycles, beach chairs, beach towels, sunscreen and after sun lotion free of charge! Thank you so much for making my birthday celebration the best one! I will come back!

Travelocity website misrepresented the location of the property. The lido islander main property is at 528 Polk. It’s closer to the beach (about a block) and st Armand’s circle and is what was stated on the site. We’ve stayed here 5 yrs ago. room booked said 528 Polk but was actually 170 Kennedy the sister property. When we called Travelocity to discuss this with them they did nothing but give us the runaround and blame the lido island. The only option they kept giving this place to cancel and rebook however this would’ve affected our flight options that we purchased separately. In the end we called the property owner and arranged for the room that we actually thought we selected at the main property. Although it cost us $400 more! It gave us the space that we needed. We had actually stayed in this same room five years ago. While the outside of the Lido islander has been updated and maintained the room was not. Chipped paint, mold on the ceilings in the bathroom and living room. Rust in the bathroom tub, Bad lighting-bedroom light didn’t work and we could hardly see. Overall the room (1 bdrm suite) inot maintained well at all.The location as far as Lido Beach and St Armand Circle cannot be beat on that alone. They even offer you free use of bicycles and beach chairs etc. but they also show wear. The bicycle chain was practically off the bike. We spoke with the property manager Again who clearly stated that she’s never heard this before which is highly unlikely.

I would rather not talk about my experience. The place was run down. Absentee owners or managers who ever they are.

Nice location

The TV did not work for first night but property manager worked the problem. The place is small as advertise but nice, the islander was walking distance to both shops and beach. You can also drive with no problems. Great time

Perfect getaway

Pros: Safe neighborhood, clean, close to beach
Cons: Replacing towels
Location: Siesta Key, St. Armands circle
My boyfriend and I stayed at the Lido islander inn for four nights and it was absolutely perfect. It was clean and in a very safe upscale neighborhood. It's not an all inclusive resort but that's not what we were looking for. It is a two minute walk to the beach and St. Armands circle which was perfect for shopping and it was only a 15 minute drive to Siesta Key beach which was absolutely gorgeous. We are coming again in November!!

MANAGER would not fix my AC and I froze

Pros: LIDO Beach Location
Cons: Customer Service, Manager that listens to customers that are not comfortable
Stayed 2 nights, after first night, told manager I froze from 2am to 8am, b/c AC would not go off. He did nothing about it and the 2nd night, same thing. This motel makes you do everything WITHOUT checking in with a live person. I asked for a partial refund, but the Manager texted me back, but would do nothing to either resolve the problem OR make it right. I would never stay here again.
