I've been attending the Mt Dora Renninger's Extravaganza for nearly 20 years. So I frequent Mt Dora often. My husband and I have fond memories of the town and enjoy the quaintness of it. We stopped staying at the Lakeside Inn due to the fact that for the cost, the rooms needed some renovating. Once we heard this was being... More

They have replaced the carpeting in all rooms and most hallways-this was much needed. Further work is on the way, I was told.The mildew smell is pretty much gone now. Setting is still as beautiful as ever-fantastic sunsets over the lake on my last 2 visits. Staff always friendly.

Visited Rennigers's Extravaganza this past weekend. This is our fifth year and had a great weekend. The Inn was founded in 1883 and the owners are undergoing great expansion in restoring this fine 100 year plus Inn. The food was excellent and all the people were very nice and friendly. Also had great conversations with various couples on the beautiful... More

This hotel should be a gem; instead, it is neglected and falling apart. We had 2 rooms for 2 nights in the Sunset building, for which we paid $358 and $338, although I don't understand why the price difference between them, since the cheaper room had a lovely lakeside view! The entire place smells musty and dirty, the bathrooms are... More

I booked my room for an upgraded larger room and paid $20.00 a night more and got a room that just barely fit a double bed. The bathroom must have been the original from the early 1900's. The toilet was so small and low I could hardly fit on it let alone get up from it. The room was clean... More

A reasonably priced nice place to stay. You can tell the rooms are original to the property with some renovations. Big attraction for out of town folks is the location is adjacent to the historic downtown area and good shopping and dining are within an easy walk. Definitely 'historic' and not 'high end'.

We stayed for two nights for the Art Festival, so the location was fabulous. We had a queen room and it was small as are most historical hotels. The bathroom is sorely in need of upgrading. The toilet was old industrial style and the towels were thin and some were down right old. The walls are very thin and you... More

The towels need to be retired. there was no ventilation fan the window was painted shut. For winter the linens were quite thin. I love old historic hotel and... More

We were at the Lakeside Inn for Christmas and had a lovely time. Our room was very nice. It was a suite with two rooms and a bath. The bedroom area seemed to have been redone and had a nice view of the lake. The bath was clean but not totally updated. The sitting room seemed a bit dark but... More
