The place certainly is unique. No desk or anything, but it wasn't needed. Just pick letter with room number up in a mailbox. Problem was mailbox was on 2nd floor. I had requeasted 1st floor room. My husband and I both have medical issues which made going upstairs difficult.. Our room? 2nd floor. Well, with the help of another guest, we were able to get things up stairs. The poor woman who helped us, fell down about 4 steps on her back. She also hit her head. Note, steps are extremely slippery when wet. The room was really cute. And really small. We didn't mind the size, since we are local and were only there overnite for friends' wedding. Main problem came, when I attempted to get into the bed, I honestly couldn't. I'm very short, and the bed actually came up to my chest. Plus due to a leg problem, can't exactly jump. But we managed, with my husband's help. Minor issue is no reading light, which would be nice. Major problem was parking situation. Absolutely, had alot more cars than rooms. I didn't get towed so that was ok. Good thing I had couple drinks and was mellowed out, so not much bothered me. If I need to stay on Lido for any reason, wouldn't hesitate to book there again. Just would go directly thru place itself rather than online booking agency. Just a suggestion, if all beds are that high, little stool would have been great, and maybe a sign making people aware how slippery steps are.
