We just stayed for three nights at this hotel, I didn't know quite what to expect because it has 1950's architecture and was hoping it wasn't outdated service and style. It was wonderful like a old style Florida resort hotels that has been lovely maintained. The price was terrific $155 for a gulf front room with a small deck that looked over the white powdered sand of Lido Beach. It has two swimming pools but we spent most afternoons lying under the palm tree huts that are on the beach. Don't miss having breakfast at the hotel, the price is great under $10 and on weekends they have a buffet for the same price. Excellant service from the staff. We will be back next year for a longer stay.
