Not what we expected. The people hanging out here must be the ones trying re-live their glory days.... The rooms felt old, dirty and outdated. The parking situation is a nightmare and the front desk was less than helpful. They were rude at check in and acted like it was a big task to check us in...then when asking where... More

Every room is truly ocean-front. Thank you Trip Advisor for giving us the heads up that some rooms had been recently renovated. My husband requested a newly renovated room on check-in. We weren't originally assigned a renovated room:(. The view was gorgeous with beautiful white sand beach. New shower/tub, vanity, and kitchenette. Nice Sea shades in paint choices. And most... More

This is where the locals go to party it up!!! Pros: Every room has a great view of the ocean- only feet away. The resort has loads of perks for entertainment...live music, DJ's who engage the folks in beach games, 3 different bars, 3 sit down restaurants, and the entire bottom floor is dedicated to bars, beach souvenir shops, and...

I'm reading these "good" reviews and wondering if the hotel is paying these writers. Stay away. Period. Gross rooms, gross food, loud and obnoxious guests and employees. Very seedy, cops there all the time. This place is a cross between the Addams Family house and the Munsters house. Lots of other GREAT choices to stay on the beach.

Wow, another wonder time at th Lani Kai, My best friend and I decided to take a beach vacation and of course my favorite place is the Lani Kai on Ft Meyes Beach. This is by far the best place in Flordia. They have it all at a very fair price. The Tiki Bar, the beach side bar service {... More

We decided on this beach to take our honeymoon on, looking for something cheaper we found the Lani Kai. Fairly quick check in, staff wasn't too friendly but not completely terrible. The room was nothing fancy but it was ok. Driving all the way down there we were pretty tired from the trip, downstairs can be pretty loud at night... More

As we knew what we were getting into before we booked we were happy with what we got. The hotel is under remodel and we like the newly remodeled room we had it was done very nicely. I agree it still needs more work but, it is under construction. Found most of the staff to be friendly but, the downstairs... More

It is on the beach. Every room has seaview. The restaurant and bar on the roof are great. The wifi unfortunately doesn't work well. Free parking is nice and there are many stores next door. A bit old but clean. Use a Florida coupon to get the room for $79.

The Lani Kai was a great place to go and just unwind. I have 2 small children, and I loved that behind this hotel there was a little kids area right next to a food stand. We ate dinner at the Island View up top, and the view was amazing. The staff was helpful, and polite. I thought the room... More
