From the time we arrived the front desk help was very friendly and knowledgeable of the area. The room was very clean, but needed some updating. It also had a fully loaded kitchenette that made it easy for the room to become home base as we hopped from one adventure to another. A very quaint tiki hut right outside my... More

We chose the Lakeside Inn at random, never having been to Marco Island before. We chose well. Our room was away from the main building and had everything we need for our stay including a full kitchen. Pool is small but perfectly adequate, and being centrally located on the island, not too far from any of the beaches. Our main... More

I'm so glad you enjoyed staying here, especially since you chose us at random. You're absolutely right about us being so centrally located near beaches, supermarkets and a number of the 60 restaurants on the island.

This is a great, affordable location on Marco Island. My 1st floor suite was like an apartment - probably used to be one. Full kitchen, combined living and dining area, good-size queen bedroom, and lakefront screened porch. Convenient to everything. Books, DVDs, beach towels & coolers are available for check-out through the office. However, the office is only open from... More

Spend the extra hundred dollars and stay at the Marriott! Not sure how this property got such rave reviews! The room looked nice enough once you're in it, (outside looks like an old motel) however the over powering smell of Fabreeze is way too much! My daughter has asthma and we decided not to stay the night. They won't refund... More

We booked a single bedroom unit with a lake view through the Travel Advantage Network (TAN). For anyone looking for a budget vacation in a great location, this is it.

When we got there, the hostess at the reception area was super-nice and friendly. She gave us the keys and patiently answered my questions...then we hit the room. While decorated very "beachy", I did note that some areas were a bit worn - like the carpet in the dining area,and the painting touch-ups on the wall. HOWEVER...after a little while,... More

I wonder if some of the reviews for this hotel are fake. I just find it hard to believe that so many people raved about it after my experience. I will say this, if the rate had been cheaper I would have been satisfied with my stay. I just didn't think it was worth the price that I paid. I... More

My husband and I came for a quick look at Marco Island, we were pleasantly surprised with the room. I loved the cleaning details, and the high end feel of the linens. The foliage around the grounds were well kept and very tropical. We will come back when we have more time to stay. Marcia the Manager is the best.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Marco Island Lakeside Inn sits one mile from Marco Island beaches and boasts a sparkling-heated pool and affordable rates year round. Come and enjoy the only Lakeside getaway on Marco Island. A Cozy Island Getaway. Our 19-suite Marco Island Inn offers two two-bedroom suites, 10 one-bedroom suites and seven studio suites. Our spacious and comfortable suites have been recently remodeled and decorated with a cottage chic decor reminiscent of Old Florida and Key West. Each hideaway is thoughtfully appointed with a fresh, clean white and beige pallet and select floral accents. Wicker cottage-style furniture tastefully completes the setting for an island atmosphere. Imagine French doors, private decks, lake views, tropical breezes and blue skies....you are at Marco Island Lakeside Inn. Lakeview Suites offer a screened-in balcony overlooking the Marco Lake, which is designated a natural habitat for local birds, ducks and turtles to name a few. It is the perfect place to sit and enjoy a cocktail before dinner while taking in the serene atmosphere. Our beautifully landscaped inn is located off the beaten track but close to everything. It is a serene sanctuary and a great retreat from the atmosphere of the large resorts and high rises. You will feel right at home the moment you enter. Our friendly staff is quite informative about the local area and offers a personalized experience of Marco Island. If you are looking to escape your fast paced life and slow down for a while, you will want to stay here. ... more   less
