Weekend Escape
While this is an older hotel, it was right on Lido Beach and the convenience was important to us. The first night we had asked for a king size bed which was not on the beach side. The room was small and the plug in the bathroom didn't work. But we moved to two queen beds the second night and the room faced the ocean and was larger. It was much better. We enjoyed our time at the beach, at the pool and shopping and the restaurants in St. Armand's Circle. We ate breakfast there at the hotel both mornings and it was delicious and reasonable. Sunday they had a buffet and Monday we ordered from the menu. The staff were always helpful and professional. We would definitely stay here again.

Great hotel on the beach.
Great location across the road from the beach. Rooms large and very clean. You do need to be a weightlifter to open the door against the restrainer. The prepaid breakfast allowance was $18 against the restaurant menu. 2 blocks to St Armands Circle.

Perfect location, nice place. Bath needs updating
The location of this hotel is perfect, right across from the beach. The staff was super friendly and helpful. We loved the pool area, my husband was there every morning while I slept in. The bathroom was a little small (the closet in the room pushes into it). The bathtub seriously needs replacing. I almost fell the first time I entered it - the liner under the tub moves and is unstable.

$25 fee for hotel services that should be included
Room is comfortable, but air conditioning is noisy. Wi-fi is poor. Hotel charges an additional destination fee of $25 for a usual hotel services like coffee and water that doesn't worth it.
