My family and I stayed 4 days/3nights. When we arrived, first time in the Lido Beach area, and I didn't know what to expect after reading some of the reviews. You won't get fancy fountains, elaborate fixtures, or fancy furniture. It is truly a Hotel frozen in time…reminded me of “Sunny Motel’s” from The Adam Sandler movie Bedtime Stories. The Beach is lined with high rise condo’s and right next door is the elaborate Ritz Carlton. But, this hotel is special. It is not filled with pretentious people. It was filled with families. Families who are there to enjoy the beach, eat breakfast next to the pool, and enjoy their vacation. We walked the beach several mornings and aside from the public beach areas, this is the ONLY beach property with PLENTY of beach front space for playing in the sand, building sand castles, and lounging in your chair WITHOUT being right on top of the person next to you.
We paid extra for the beach view, and it was worth every penny. GREAT budget conscious hotel. There are no nearby stores and very few places to eat unless you drive/walk over to St. Armand's Circle, for Shopping, Dining, Entertainment and much more. Stop at the Publix on your way in…there is a frig in the room (a feature that is hard to find.)More
