What do you expect to stay in Lido Key?
We, two adults and one child of nine years old, stayed there for four days. It was very cold, 60's degree F. in most days.
It was a nice, clean, and friendly MOTEL located just on Lido Beach. You should know this is not a luxurious 5 star hotel like Ritz Carlton. Our room (#318) was a kind of small, but clean, quiet, and most things worked well. The room had a nice partial ocean view and heron welcomed us when we checked in and said goodbye when we checked out. We could not use swimming pool because it was too cold (60's degree F). There were other motel facilities like Tiki Hut, BBQ area, Shuffle Board, and Laundry, however, we did not use them at all.
There were three minor problems while we stayed; 1) shower pressure was a little too weak, 2) tile flooring was uncomfortable for us, and 3) Free WI-FI wireless high speed internet did not work well.
But this motel has still very good value and location just on Lido Beach. There are only several hotels in Lido Key and they all are very expensive. If you need nice location, beautiful beach, and reasonable room rate, this is the one you should stay. If you need great room and services with ocean front view, you should go Ritz or Lido Beach Resort.
