I was very impressed and happy with the Lido Islander. It's in the perfect location, really close to the beach and close to St. Armand's circle. The room was very clean, and had a comfortable atmosphere. Great value for a great place! Will definitely be coming back

When we first arrived at the Lido Islander Inn and Suites we had booked into the main building. As we pulled in we had a, "Uh-oh..." look at each other as there was a big wedding party on one of the balconies. No sleep that night, we thought. Fortunately for us the owner had overbooked our room and we were...

I booked the Lido Islander for a night to do a photo shoot around the area and it was definitely more than I expected. We had a two bedroom, it was clean and comfortable and homey. It is also an excellent value. They are located in a very safe and beautiful area which is close to everything (beach, shopping, dining...

We enjoyed our stay at the Lido Islander. Very close to the beach, shopping & restaurants. A nice change from the bigger motel/hotel types. Quiet & peaceful... We would stay here again!

Am somewhat loathe to review since I don't want to the the secret out! This place is: 1. Steps from the beach and from St. Armand's Circle, 2. Clean and comfortable, 3. Excellent value for the money. Recommended!

Small but cozy rooms. Like a very personal B&B. We only missed the breakfast and please do change the locks to some of the rooms.

The rooms are different sizes, and we had the smallest, but it was clean, neat, tidy. Because it was small, we spent time on the porch that had rockers. Everyone else staying there seemed friendly, but not "in your face." People generally used the patio area (which is 30-40 feet from the building) for socializing. The check-in system is a...

We have been going to Lido Beach area for several years. We usually stay at the Holiday Inn but were traveling with our son and daughter in law, so we decided to save everyone some money and find a place to share. We ended up at the Lido Islander in a 2 bedroon unit. The location is great because you...

this vacation rental was wonderful. our room was immaculate, the bed was comfy and we loved the "beach chic" decor done in a soothing ocean palette. the rate per night was a great value and the location was about 2 blocks from the one of the most beautiful beaches we've ever visited. AND it was only 3 blocks from st....

The image and map may not be where you stay. As another mentioned, my room was 8 blocks further away. Not bad but much further from St Armands than indicated by map. I stayed in unit 24. It is a large studio with kitchenette. Wireless worked no problem. The room was clean and well furnished. It is not fancy but...
