Highly recommended! The Lakeside Inn is nestled off the busy streets... very quiet and peaceful.The room was clean and quite comfortable. We enjoyed swimming in the heated pool in the mornings (we were there in March) and later sitting on the little beach by the lake at sunset watching the snowy egrets and other birds settling down for the night....

This hidden gem is so worth the visit if you desire quiet and solitude. It is tucked away from the hustle bustle yet close to everything that is happening AND the price is incredible for being on Marco Island. What is right about this place is that there is a quiet lakeside beach with sand and comfy chairs to watch... More

Thank you so much for taking the time to write such a glowing review about your stay with us! We ARE definitely the place to go for quiet and solitude!

Marco Island Lakeside Inn was a stop on our roadtrip of south Florida. I wish we'd booked more than just one night here because I really loved it. I think we had room 105 (2nd floor, last unit overlooking the pool). It was absolutely spotless and decorated so cute. It was roomy enough for me, my husband and teenage daughter.... More

Our family of two adults and four kids enjoyed the two room suite. Great area to relax by the lake and enjoy some bbq'd fish and shrimp from our excursion to a fish market near the Everglades. Friendly staff and beach chairs and toys to borrow. A bit of a drive to the beach but also nice to be away... More

This hotel is off the beach but the room is so clean, quaint & the staff is extremely friendly and helpful. It was easy to get to the beach at a real cost savings. We have stayed in the past at the upscale hotels on the beach but with the costs skyrocketing in Marco this is a great alternative.

well, the inn itself is fine, and we would stay here again. It's off the beaten path which is good and it's not far to get to anything. Lots of good restaurants. Be sure to eat at Red Rooster for breakfast. Nice little beach area just outside our room (104). Clean room, full kitchen, bathroom a little small and could... More

A great little place on a lake. Quiet, peaceful, easily accessible to everything on Marco Island. Lake with white sandy beach is relaxing plus the families of ducks! Do your own cooking on grills provided, sit and visit with other visitors. Staff was friendly and most helpful with directions and suggestions. Rooms were ultra clean and nicely decorated.

My husband and I stayed at the Inn last week for 4 nights. We really enjoyed it. Our room was very clean and had a cute beach theme to it. The kitchen area was nice as we made some of our meals there. We were close to everything we wanted to do on the island. We would stay here again.
