Lido Islander Inn
I arrived around 10pm to find, without notice, that there was no office. There was a mailbox with OPEN envelopes which each had a name and code to open the door of your assigned room. Why such a flaw in security? How much does it cost to close an envelope? As a single female with an assigned room on the first floor which was left with lights on and windows open, this was scary! There was a number on the envelope that said call or text for help anytime. I texted to ask how to change the code so that others would not be able to enter- no answer. I thought maybe it was late and they would answer the next day- nothing. Seriously, if you see a guest is SCARED and rightfully so, why wouldn't you even bother to answer. I ended up moving furniture in front of the double glass doors so that I would feel safe. Outside of that, the neighborhood and location are INCREDIBLE. The bed was super uncomfortable. There was one little bar of soap and no conditioner etc.

Lido Inn Sarasota Hotel Review
The room was ready on time. Our room was several blocks from where we picked up our envelope containing our room code and instructions. Our room was clean but the door to the outside patio would not open which was very disappointing. The bathroom was quite small with no shampoo. The bed was OK but the blanket was quite thin. For the price I would rate this room as adequate. The location was very good. Close to St. Armand’s Circle and the beach.

Old Hotel- Great Surrounding Area
The location of this hotel is what makes staying here worth it, but do not expect luxury. It is very old and not too comfortable, but is walking distance to the beach and a great little shopping/restaurant area of Lido Beach. The A/C in our room was cool, but not cold and the mattresses were quite hard and not very comfortable. The cleaning supplies and laundry area are in full view and not tidy. I would only recommend if you are on a budget and get a good deal.
