Fodor's Review

Lido Key's first motel, this beachfront condo complex has been designated a historic property. It's composed of condominium units that are rented out as motel rooms; since each unit is individually owned, renovations at the property are continuous, but there is no uniformity. Rooms are bright and each has a different decor—many return visitors have their favorite rooms and book several years in advance.
