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

Thank you for your review and for choosing to stay with us. I'm glad to hear you thought the inn was fine and would stay here again.

It is a kinda quaint retro inn, off main area but close to everything. Immaculate room, friendly staff, our own outside table, chairs and a little beach we enjoyed as well a few steps away, ....old school! We got a real key to the room, loved it! Complete with a full size coffee pot we enjoyed! We will be back,... More

Dear Carrie, Thanks for your great review! I'm glad you enjoyed our quaint, retro look and how immaculate the room was!

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. Everyone was... More

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.

Dear Lin, Thanks so much for reviewing our inn and letting us know how much you enjoyed it! Our rooms are always spotlessly clean and I'm glad you liked our old Key West decor. It's definitely convenient to have a full kitchen since a lot of people don't want to eat out 3 meals a day, not to mention that... More

We very much enjoyed our 2 night stay at the Lakeside Inn. The staff especially Marcia were warm and helpful with recommendations and directions. The rooms are clean and the beds are very comfortable. We spent a lot of time at the public beach (Tigertail- which is fabulous for swimming, kayaking and shelling) which is 5 minutes away and it...

Our family was here for two nights and enjoyed our stay. Rooms are immaculate and the staff here are very attentive to your every need. In a nice quiet part of Marco, yet no more than a few minutes away from everything on the island. Highly recommended!

We have stayed at the Marco Island Lakeside Inn three times in the past few years and we are never disappointed. The Poolside Studio rooms have been surprisingly quiet. From reading reviews, the immaculate rooms are why we chose to stay in the first place. Pleasantly surprising was how quiet the rooms were considering how close to the pool we... More

This small, quaint property was fine for our one night stay. It is on a quiet side street in the middle of the island, but Marco is small so everything on the island is easy to reach by car. Our room was very clean and spacious, decorated in pastel colors. Besides a queen bed, there was a small round dining... More

The pictures on hotel web site are deceiving. Marco Island Lakeside Inn has not been updated in 30 years. Needs major renovation. The "white sandy beach" does not exist and the "lake" is a muddy pond, the Inn warned us not to swim in the water, not safe. For about $350/night I felt cheated. Will not go back again.

I am always sorry when we do not meet a guest's expectations, and it sounds like you did not like anything about our inn. You are certainly entitled to your opinion, but it is entirely inaccurate That is quite obvious when you see other guests reviews. Perhaps you were expecting a high rise resort kind of experience, but we do... More
