Enjoyable little place to stay on Lido Key. Very friendly, responsive office staff. Rooms and amenities are clean and simple. A little bit sparse on kitchen amenities, good to know before you book. Great little place!

This place is a great find! We only paid $75 a night for Friday through Sunday in August for a basic room that includes a kitchenette and a king size bed -- which can apparently be separated into two twin size beds upon request, or upon arrival of two gay men on vacay ;-) In any event, it is a block from the beach and a short walk to St. Armand's Circle. As an added bonus, there is a fully functional shuffle board! Okay, so it is a no frills kind of place, but the location is great and the price is right. Also, I didn't bring my black light, but the place seemed clean. I would definitely consider going back.

Beau Lido is Fantastic. While a slightly older motel, not like your fancy Holiday Inn a few hundred feet away that costs almost twice as much, THIS is a great place to stay. The staff are friendly and accomodating. We stayed in a 1 bedroom apartment that had two rooms, kitchen facilities with a full sized refrigerator, stove, toaster, blender, etc. The King bed was great, the shower adequate (we prefer just a shower and not one with a tub, although some of the rooms do have the tub/shower combo). You leave your dirty towels on a chair outside your room, and the staff leave replacements for you. We will definitely stay here again and recommend that you do too.

I took a Basic room (most are suites with full kitchens), it had all the comforts: clean, good shower, MrCoffee microwave minifridge tv, bed is comfy, lots of clean fluffy towels, & the essential AC window unit + ceiling fan. This isn't a bleak modern hotel-style, but it's not at all sleazy: it's pleasant 50's-style cottages, pink & green tile bathroom, terrazzo floor! Lots of lawn & lawn chairs outside--very easygoing place to just hang out. Almost no one was around when i was there (mid-July), which seemed weird, but apparently that is off-season; no weekday crowds on Lido Key; it felt safe despite the empty sidewalks (to me, a single woman walking alone at night). A fine place for a self-sufficient-type traveler. Just steps to spectacular Lido Beach, 2 minute walk to St.Arm's. Peaceful, quiet; if you're here to party you should try Siesta Key instead. LidoKey (& St.Armands) feels upscale, so to find this relatively inexpensive lodging there was a pleasant find. Wifi signal didn't function but i was really there for the fine beach, the awesome shorebirds & the spectacular sunsets. I would (i will) go back!

Beau Lido was great. A piece of old Florida. The cottage was very clean and quiet and comfortable. The location was ideal. Lido beach is very beautiful. My family lives in town and they were impressed. We can't wait to come back.

My wife found this place at the last minute when out-of-town company expressed a desire to hang out at the beach. We felt very lucky - great location, easy access to the beach, nice accommodations, very friendly staff, good price and St. Armands Circle with lots of eating and shopping choices is very close. No pool but being close to the beach that didn't matter. The place was very quiet and peaceful - just what we needed. We had a very enjoyable stay.

After reading the reviews we decided to give this place a try. It is exactly what others have said. It is in need of an "update" there is one really sweet lady (Carrie) who runs it by herself and the location is perfect!! The inside was clean & met our basic needs. This is not The Ritz but the price and location alone are worth giving it a try. If I had to write "cons" it would be the toilet paper roll is very very close to the toilet & to bring your own hair dryer! Overall it was a good experience.I am glad we found Beau Lido & we will be visiting again!
