Lido Motel
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed December 7, 2012

A group of 4 spent one night too many at the LIDO as we wanted to enjoy the Radium Hot Spring. We came from the Fairmont Hot Spring where we spent several wonderful(!) days. Only to find the LIDO with remote (kilometres away) access to Radium Hot Springs, out-of-date motel room accessories, and the tiniest single bar of soap -- for the high cost of the motel room!!. It was a disappointment. The owner seemed quite proud of her parsimony and unapologetic of the $$cost. There must be some more accommodating motel establishment than this was, believe me, in Radium Hot Springs.

Room Tip: Don't spend your money here at the LIDO

This little motel looks like it wouldn't be too much from the outside but don't be fooled. The rooms are as nice as any fancy expensive hotel. They are immaculately clean and so nicely decorated. You can tell this couple takes great pride in their facility. When you see the ad on one of the discount sites just call the motel instead. They may be able to give you a better rate or certainly match it. This has become our new "place to stay" in Radium.

We were deeply impressed to get this very warm welcome from Gabriele and Frank. This motel is located in a great and exciting landscape. Our room was characterised by its cleaness and at the same time by its coziness. Also the look from outside including the flowers and the painted building rounds the positive picture we had. There is really nothing bad to say. We were absolutely satisfied.

My friend and I stayed this cozy, homey, so clean and very well organized place for 3 nights. We're so impressive with cleanness, being tidy and well organizing in this smallish place even though it's not so fancy accommodation. You cannot miss to see owner's thoughtfulness and devotion to keep cleanness extremely. We'll come and stay again.

Room Tip: I think all rooms are so quiet.

Great hosts, great property and great place to stay. The room was quite, clean and spacious and we were able to walk where we needed to go. I definitly recommend it!

Frank and Gabi are a cute, accommodating couple that run the motel. Spacious, very clean room, with hot showers that had great pressure. Used kitchenette and BBQ to save some money. Can't say anything bad. The reviewer from past were right on. It's a must stay.
