Lido Beach is one block away and is gorgeous but this is like the Bates Motel!!! It is old fashioned and creepy. The floors are terrazzo and it is like an apartment with a window air conditioner. It is equipped with a full kitchen, bathroom, and separate bedroom, and a living room area with TV. It is quaint but creepy. I never knew where the manager was. I only heard his voice the first night we were sitting out on the patio when he said "hello, how are things in your unit"? I answered "fine" but never met him. The stove was filthy so I changed the foil under the burners myself. For the money I paid it was ok, but I was creeped out the entire time we were there. There was a sitting patio in the middle of the courtyard with a grill but it was locked and I didn't know where to get the key. The bed was terribly uncomfortable.
