“Mixed feelings”
Reviewed 31 March 2014

While the location was nice and even sitting on the porch was pleasant and quiet, there is little to add to it all. Plain is very OK with me, but at $160/night for a week, the first night I was greeted by a big "Palmetto bug" aka cockroach on the stove. Fortunately I did not see any more. There is no cleaning or changing of sheets until you leave. Its nice to have privacy, but at the price, a bit of maintenance seems reasonable, beyond leaving dirty towels outside in exchange for new ones. The one caretaker there was pleasant and helpful when asked.

This is a great little place practically across the street from one of the best non-touristy beaches in FL. Nice friendly staff, clean rooms, full kitchen and bath, and great AC at half the price! If you want to enjoy Siesta Beach, but don't want all the tourists, this is the place to go. Nice shopping and dining within walking distance. Sunsets are incredible! I will return if this place is available my next trip to FL.

Room Tip: They only have a few rooms and they are all pretty much the same way.

We had 2 rooms for our trip to see Orioles spring training and this was a great place to stay. Quick walk to the beach, easy walk to St. Armand's Circle, and convenient to the stadium for games. The rooms are a little run down but great value for the price and location, We will definitely come again,

We stayed in a 'cottage' type room. I guess the $200/nt is for location because the floors were painted (and chipped) cement. If you dont plan to stay in your room it is an ok place. Only two small pillows on the bed thought - so maybe bring your own if you stay any longer than about 2-3 nights. Our air conditioner in the room was so loud we could not use it. The place had a very small bathroom, a bedroom, a living/kitchen area. You can walk to beach and the circle so the location is great. We were down here looking for houses (unfortunately during spring break so all regular hotels in Sarasota were booked)

Room Tip: we were in 'cottage' 8 - very loud air conditioner in the bedroom. Right up front at the par...

Even though the facility is dated , it is immaculately clean and within walking distance of the beach, pool, restaurants and shopping.
They do allow dogs and there is a nice grassy area and patio area outside your door to sit and relax. They also provide a grill and hammock for two.
The location is in a very quiet neighborhood.
We would definitely go back.

We traveled to Lido Key to attend a wedding. Beau Lido Suites was the best lodging value in the area. The rooms are spacious and clean and had a little kitchen to cook meals if you didn't want to eat out 100% of the time. Best of all, we could walk to the beach in two minutes and walk to shopping and great restaurants at St. Armands Circle in five minutes. My husband could take a nap in the afternoon and I could shop or hang out at the beach. The motel has the friendly atmosphere of a "mom and pop" business rather than the impersonality of a chain or multi-story "resort".

Beau Lido is in a great location. One block to the beach with beautiful sunsets and occasional dolphin sightings. Easy walk to St. Armands Circle where there is a Starbucks and several other restaurants and shops. We stayed in a one bedroom unit that consisted of two rooms. A galley-type kitchen and a sitting area with flat screen TV in one room and the other room contained a king-size bed. The bed was very comfortable. The kitchen was well equipped. The bathroom was on the small side. This property is "old-school" Florida but very comfortable and clean. Carrie was very helpful and always pleasant.
