We stayed at Coquina after reading reviews and were pleasantly surprised. It was better than anticipated. Friendly staff. great location, good sized rooms. If you want brand new fancy hotel on the beach, its not, but it is a great old style clean and roomy place right on the beach. I would highly recommend it to all.

I have been staying here since 1973 when I was five years old. Still one of my favourite little motels to stay in anywhere. We usually stay in the beachview rooms and have a great stay. Unfortunately, we got stuck in that stupid snowstorm in Buffalo and had to cancel our reservations a couple of weeks back. Once we escaped...

I have reviewed this hotel and gave it a great review. We have been staying at this resort for 30 or more years. When we were there in June, we stayed in a patio room. It met all of our needs and remained one of our top Lido hotels. We got a poolside room last month. I was very disappointed....

We four college pals have been meeting here for 10 years for our annual reunion. Coquina meets our needs perfectly --- 2 connecting rooms each with 2 beds and bath, kitchenette, beach front with chairs and towels. The rooms are a bit dated and "tired" but clean, spacious. Each year the management shows it is updating bit by bit. We'll...

My husband and I went for a get away weekend and found this little gem in Sarasota on Lido beach. The hotel is small and clean even if a little outdated in decor... Our room was very spacious and the staff was so welcoming. The location is within a mile-ish of the famous St Armand's Circle which is full of...

If you are looking for a modern, glitzy hotel, read no farther. This one is not for you. BUT, if you want a clean, comfortable little place right on the beach with a hospitable staff, check out Coquina on the Beach at Lido Beach near Sarasota, FL. Our stay there was wonderful. It is an old, family owned hotel built...

We have stayed at this hotel now for almost 8 years straight once or twice a year. I love having a little kitchen and as far as location, it's spot on. I will say that this time we had some issues with housekeeping actually the past two times we have stayed there have been a lack of detail or they...

I visited Coquina with my family and my dogs. We all enjoyed our stay! It was so relaxing and such a peaceful environment. It was exactly what we all needed. I have a very big dog and I never find a hotel that allows him to stay. Coquina was so welcoming and it felt like home. Everything was clean. The...
