Help with One Night stay on Lido Key

Please help me find a Lido Key resort that does not have a 3-night minimum. ...looking for a condo or hotel with at least one bedroom for July 27th. Budget - $175/$200. We are hoping to find a kid-friendly (6 and 7) property super close to the Gulf...if not ON the Gulf.

Thanks in advance for your help!

Most places on Lido Key are on the Gulf. Helmsley Sandcastle has rooms in your price range; a bit dated, but great staff and definitely the beach location you're looking for. Also, if you don't need a full-service kind of place, consider Coquina on the Beach.

You might also consider the Holiday Inn Lido Key..if that type room would work with your children. Across the street from the beach.

If it's only for one night you might as well stay at a hotel on the mainland and spend the day at the public beach on Lido Key. It will probably cost less than half of what you plan to budget for anything on Lido Key.

The mainland will be about a 20-min drive to the Key.

I also thought of the Holiday Inn on Lido, which I would prefer and which would be a great choice, but their rates seemed to be a bit over the OP's price range (as was Lido Beach Resort). The rates at the Helmsley and Coquina are quite a lot less. Coquina also competes well with some mainland motel prices at this time of year.
