Two weeks ago (Jan 9) we made a reservation on the Lido Islander website. We received a confirmation number and everything. I still have the printout. Over the next couple days we continued to go online and check reviews, look at pictures, get excited about our upcoming trip, etc., but noticed that our room was showing up as still available....

No doubt about it, the location is GREAT, but the apt. Was really run down, dark and dingy. The toilet paper roll holder had broken off the wall and was missing, the shower was rusty, the bed was okay but made loud noises when you moved. We had planned n cooking in the full kitchen, but it was lacking in...

My husband and I stayed at the Inn for a weekend. There are a few items that were not very clean. The floor had a very slippery/oily film on it as did the tub. We each used the towel to step out of the shower when we done but once we were on the tile it was even more slippery....

We were recommended to stay in St Armands Circle by a couple we met in Fort Myers. We found this hotel on booking.com and were not disappointed. It is 5 minutes walk to the beach and about 7 minutes to St Armands Circle with a wealth of shops, bars and restaurants. Our room was nicely decorated but is quite small...

Upon arriving, we noticed the AC wasn't working. We reported it and were transferred to a new room within ten minutes. Very much appreciated. Both rooms were extremely clean. The building is a SHORT walk to the beach, and about a minute drive to St. Armand's Circle, which consists of an array of restaurants and boutique shopping. Downtown Sarasota is...

The check in process is unusual but it works. Our 1st room had a broken ac and was very warm. But as soon as we reported it they moved us to another room. It was very comfortable. My only advice is if you like morning coffee, bring your own. There is a small coffee maker, but no coffee.

Stayed for 5 days and it worked perfect for our Family. We stayed in the 3 bedroom. Was a little small but worked out fine. The best part was that it was so close to the beach and to St. Armand's. A perfect spot.

Stayed there for 2 days and I picked this hotel because of its proximity to the beach and quiet environment. We arrived later in the evening and as there is no reception, I had to call the assistance number as the key was not left where I was told it would be, but OK, we got into the room, which...

I stayed in the main unit with a queen bed. The room was pretty small--I would not try to fit more than two people in it. It did have a mini fridge, microwave, toaster, coffee pot, and basic dishes. The exterior looks a little dated, but the room itself was clean and updated. The bed was very comfortable. The towels...
