Ok this was the worst Inn and the Best inn I have ever stayed in. Sorry if that confuses you, I'll try to explain. The rooms are original, old Damp and falling apart the tub was painted over and was peeling off the room smelt so bad and both my husband and I woke in pain, our backs were killing... More

It seems that most historic hotels are bought and renovated and then become unaffordable. The Lakeside Inn dates from the 1880's and is still family run. The rooms are basic but comfortable. We loved sitting by the lake for wine at sunset. They have a pub with live music most nights and a lovely dining room.They have a nice lakeview... More

We have been going to the Lakeside for years to celebrate my wife's Birthday, and in the past, enjoyed our stay. We always request the Coolidge room. The reason was it had two separate bedrooms connected by a shared bathroom. This was perfect for our daughters to be able to share one room and we had the other. The day... More

This was our first stay at the Lakeside Inn. We had heard that Mt Dora is a wonderful place to visit and the Lakeside Inn was very nice. We were not disappointed. Our room was clean and looked like it had been recently painted. We had a king bed and the room was still spacious enough for us. The bathroom... More

We've stayed here before and visited the Lakeside Inn as part of a recent tour. During our stays here, we've enjoyed the close proximity to the downtown area. The wings offer more quiet a stay but the main Inn is a well preserved resemblance of its 19th century charm. You've got to check out the dining areas, bar, lobby, and... More

I had been to Mt Dora and loved the quaintness of the town so I decided to go again, I remembered the Lakeside Inn from the outside it looked like a beautiful hotel so I decided to stay here this time. Big mistake, upon arrival I was greeted by a very nice lady who advised me that we were not... More

We have stayed at the Lakeside Inn every year for the last 15 years. It's in a great location for walking around Mt. Dora and is on Lake Dora. However on our most recent trip we were not treated very well. We made our reservation on-line on their site and booked our room with a pet fee included. After we... More

I stopped by this hotel to check it out because I had heard of its historic charm. I have been in the hospitality business for years and am always excited to check out other hotels and service styles. THIS HAS TO BE THE WORST RUN HOTEL/RESTAURANT I HAVE EVER SEEN! First, I went to the front desk only to NOT... More

We try to take a couple of long weekend trips to Mt Dora each year and this was the second time that we have stayed at the Lakeside Inn. As most have said in prior posts, it is charming and old. The rooms are spartan by todays standards but they are clean if not well worn. They are currently renovating... More

We had an excellent lunch in the Tavern, Floyd the waiter was very nice and funny. The food was excellent and well presented. My fish sandwich was the best I've had in a long time, my friend had the monte cristo and loved it. I noticed as we ate a thick layer of dust and dirt with spiderwebs all over... More
