Dated, Dirty, & (NO) Deal!!Posted Sep 20, 2015
Pros: THE STAFF!!! THEY WERE THE BEST!
Cons: THE WHOLE FACILITY NEEDED TO BE UPDATED, GIVEN A DEEP CLEANING AND YOUR RATES CHANGED UNTIL THAT HAPPENS! HOW DO YOU CHARGE WHAT YOU DO!
Location: LOCATION GREAT! MUCH TO DO IN THE AREA! BEAUTIFUL BEACH, LOVED IT? WISH WE COULD HAVE STAYED SOMEWHERE ELSE.
EVERYWHERE YOU LOOKED PEELING PAINT, ROTTING WOOD, FURNATURE STAINED AND ENTIRE FACILITY IS LONG OVER DUE FOR AN UPDATE! WE WERE THERE 2 NIGHTS, FIRST NIGHT WENT SMOOTHLY. SECOND NIGHT, SOME MEN WHERE HAVING A LOUD "DISCUSSION" OUTSIDE OUR ROOM @ ABOUT 10:30-11:00PM. AFTER IT FINALLY QUIETED DOWN WE HAD A LOUD POUNDING AT OUR DOOR! I ACTUALLY THOUGHT IT WAS A SECURITY GUARD ABOUT THE INCIDENT WITH THE "LOUD" MEN! BUT WHEN MY HUSBAND SAID "WHO IS IT?" AND NO ONE ANSWERED RIGHT AWAY I GOT SCARED! THEN TO MY HUSBAND REPEATEDLY ASKING "WHO IS IT", HE RECEIVED A RELY, "OPEN UP NOW!" HE DID NOT, BUT PULLED THE DRAPE BACK, THE MAN LOOKED AT MY HUSBAND FOR A GOOD 10 SECONDS AND TOOK OFF RUNNING. MY HUSBAND CALLED THE DESK, REPEATED THE STORY TO THE DESK CLERK ( A FEMALE) WHO SAID SHE WOULD SEND A SECURITY GUARD. NOT EVEN 5 MINUTES LATER THE DESK CLERK CALLED BACK, SAYING "HE DIDN'T FIND ANYONE". NO KIDDING!!! A 5 MINUTE SEARCH OF THE WHOLE 3RD FLOOR WOULD HAVE TAKEN 30 MINUTES. HE COULDN'T HAVE MADE IT TO OUR ROOM IN 5 MINUTES, UNLESS HE WAS RIGHT THERE BY OUR ROOM! WE WERE NOT SATISFIED WITH THE DESK CLERKS "CALL BACK IF IT HAPPENS AGAIN", REPLY! WE PAID SO MUCH FOR OUR ROOM, LOOKED FORWARD TO OUR MINI-VACATION FOR SO LONG AND CHOOSE LIDO BEACH RESORT ON A WHIM! WE MADE A COSTLY MISTAKE AND HAD A HORRIBLE, FRIGHTNING TIME! BUT, WE BOTH AGREED, WITHOUT EXCEPTION, THE STAFF THERE (TO THE TORCH LIGHTER AT NIGHT) WERE THE FRIENDLIEST, KINDEST MOST HELPFUL STAFF WE HAVE EVER ENCOUNTERED!

Nice hotel close to the beachPosted Sep 19, 2015
I liked the hotel very much especially the white sand and the clear water of the sarasota beach. However the rooms are not pretty, they lack cleannes and little decoration. The hotel lobby and restaurants (3) are nice but the rooms need maintanence. I will stay again but not in a deluxe room because i did not like it.

Great place to stay!Posted Sep 13, 2015
Pros: The newly renovated rooms
Cons: Minor fixing of construction work in the rooms already being used.
Hotel has been recently renovated and the rooms look great! It is still under construction and needs minor things to be fixed, not a big deal. The hotel staff are super nice and are quick to respond to requests.

As good as it can getPosted Sep 13, 2015
The hotel is old and dated, but the rooms are clean, the staff is friendly, the pool is great and the beach is outstanding and the available chairs and umbrella make the whole experience to be great! I wish it was cheaper, but it is likely the best place to stay at Lido beach!

Pros: Coffee and water in room. Beach towels.
Location: Great location, right on the Lido beach, walking distance (0.5mi) to restaurants, shops.
Very nice staff: gladly changed our room due to a very unpleasant smell in our original room. We had king room: nice size, have refrigerator, microwave, some dishes. Coffee, creamer, 2 bottles of water provided daily. Hotel provides beach towels and chairs free but charges $15/day for umbrellas (if you want umbrella). Overall was very good stay.

Older hotel on beachPosted Aug 23, 2015
Hotel has two sections, an older motel like section and a high rise section . We stayed in the older section. Outside faced a parking lot. Looked like ann old motel. Rooms were clean and mordern. Facilities were good and beach was nice. Exercise room was in high rise on 9th floor. Exercise room was adequate except they did not have water dispensers full. For the price room and facilities were acceptable

Newly RenovatedPosted Aug 9, 2015
Be careful and make sure you stay in the newly renovated portion. Otherwise your room experience we feel like a motel 6. We went from a horrible room to an amazing room which made our hotel stay even better. The food is outrageously priced but Armand's circle is close by. Tommy Bahama's food was amazing.

Pros: location, view, and shuttle to St. Armands Circle
Location: Directly on the beach with great views. St. Armand Circle is less than a mile away and the Aquarium and Ringling Museum are only minutes away.
great location, excellent view, friendly staff, and great food at all the restaurants. The weather did not cooperate but the location and amenities were very nice.

Lido Beach at It'a bestPosted Aug 2, 2015
Pros: We love the fact that it is close to the circle and has indoor parking. the staff on the beach was fantastic.
Cons: the front desk is effecient, but someone needs to teach those folks how to smile and make a guest feel welcome.
Location: Just a perfect location for us.
this was our 4th stay at this hotel. Once you get past the front desk, everyone is very friendly and service is good. We stayed in 6010, which is a suite and loved the room.
