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. The Lakeside Inn is almost central to all the important parts of the island as you have a great nearby marina, all the shopping you could need, and plenty of... More

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.

Place struck me as a bit small when we arrived. The pleasant surprise was that the manager and all the staff were courteous, informative, and friendly. They provided maps and clear directions to nearby places, and made suggestions about best beaches to visit for shelling. Rooms were clean, of reasonable size, well provisioned. Pool was wonderful. I did miss a... More

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.
