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

This hotel is like stepping back in time to a more relaxing era before digital devices. Very peaceful, traditional lakeside setting. The staff is friendly and accommodating. The restaurants can be a little spotty but are very reasonable and inviting.

We stayed at the Lakeside Inn this August and found the hotel absolutely charming. Of course it is old and you have to expect some inconveniences with that. Our room had a view of the pool and we were very pleased with that. The a/c kept our room faily cool, not uncomfortable. I do think that a ceiling fan would... More

The grounds landscaping and lake view was a beautiful backdrop for my daughters recent marriage. The hotel was charming and vintage. Many of the guests had beautiful views from their rooms, while others complained the a/c did not get the room cool enough. The restaurant provided good food and Floyd provided outstanding service as a waiter and sometimes a bartender.... More

This is a historic inn on the national registry. The most beautiful setting on Lake Dora. Excellent restaurant and pub style bar. Good breakfast and interesting dinner menu. Entertainment. Beautiful pool area with ample lounges. Nice bar and food is available. Also nice dock area on lake Dora. Horrible smell in room. Probably coming from a/c. Bath tub refinished with... More

We just returned from Mt. Dora. We stayed at the Lakeside Inn hotel. Beautiful landscape, sunsets, good food at the restaurants. Hotel is certainly old, but I wasn't ready to experience such age. Our rooms smelled very old, and musty. Room was good size, but the ac truly ruined it for me. We had a portable ac unit, and the... More

Literally just got back from a 3 day visit (Aug 29, 30, 31). Took advantage of the Escape package the Inn offers and can say I don't regret it one bit. Breakfast voucher took care of breakfast every morning, and no cheesy continental breakfast, this was great warm, cooked to order meals! A fifty dollar dinner voucher took care of... More
