This is a little late, but hopefully someone will find it useful. I took the family here in mid September for a 5 day get away. All the previous reviews commenting on the very friendly and accommodating staff, hotel cleanliness, and relative good value are 100% correct. Here's a few other things we found noteworthy: every upper floor room overlooks the ocean - and provides excellent viewing of the dolphins that swim by each morning. The hotel pool is small but immaculate - and oh so warm! It's a great place to frolic after a few hours in the sand. The diner is reasonably priced and does a very good job with breakfast items - but it's rather small and can fill up quickly. But there are several decent restaurants within walking distance. Since we went in September, traffic wasn't bad... which was fortunate since many VB attractions are toward the south end (like the amusement park). The only downside to the hotel is it's age. Don't get me wrong - everything is kept in a state of good repair and the decor is quite nice. But if you want a modern hotel with all the bells and whistles (and price) then look elsewhere. But if you prize cleanliness, friendly staff, responsive maintenance, and great value - the Belvedere is what you're looking for. We will return.
