Hi Chrissy, Thanks so much for sharing your "amazing getaway"! Our new baby ducklings are really adorable and what you saw was our resident green iguana. It's a shame it sounds like our Blue Heron wasn't around when you were there, and we also have a large collection of Anahinga birds in the tree that hangs over the lake. We... More

This was our second visit to this nice and quiet inn. We found staff very friendly and helpful and the studio unit we had was clean and neat. Although we were not on the beach, we enjoyed sitting out by the lake and watching the wildlife in the area. We found that the inn was not far from the beach... More

The Marco Island Lakeside Inn is a lovely place to stay if you travel alone but may be even so much better if you travel with your partner. I stayed at the Lakeside Inn on a business trip and unfortunately could not enjoy the wonderful place as I wished. Nevertheless, the service is very good, the possibility of a kitchen,... More

Very unique inn. Staff were fabulous. Any requests were handled immediately. Lots of nice perks such as allowing us to check in for our flight and print boarding passes, offering chair's to take to the beach, offering a selection of books to read. Just a really neat quiet place off the beaten path but still close to everything. Pool chairs... More

We stayed here for 3 nights in Mid March. It's truly a lovely nice hotel, we did not have any real encounter with management and staff and the little we did was pleasant ( they gave us a beach umbrella and allowed for 30 minutes of late check out.) Rooms are fine, comfortable and clean - although in the 2nd... More

I really enjoyed my stay here. It was a little dated, but clean. The people in the office were very friendly and helpful. I loved sitting out on my screened in porch with my coffee in the mornings.

We stayed at the Lakeside Inn in a double room suite pool side. It was beautiful, well equiped with friendly staff. They really try to accomodate everything you need including pool towels, books, toys for kids on loan. Would recommend. Absolutely loved it!

We have stayed at several places on Marco Island and, by far, this is the best. Our room was very clean and very comfortable. We loved the down duvet! We found the office staff to be very helpful. Our days were busy and it was so nice to have a comfortable place to relax at the end of the day.

We are sorry to be leaving both Marco and the Lakeside Inn. It exceeded our expectations. So much more character and more in keeping with the area than the large hotels which in my view are often soulless and much the same where ever you are. Not the Lakeside Inn which was perfectly situated overlooking a lake. We found access... More
