Stayed two nights at the Lakeside Inn. This was a “living social” offer. $197.00 for two nights (Sunday thru Thursday) in a “Florida” room. Included was breakfast for two each day and one bottle of wine upon arrival. I found out later at checkout that the offer did not include tax of $13.50 per night. Free parking. The “Florida” room...

This old hotel was perfect. The romatic setting is near the lake and is within walking distance of dozens of restaurants and shops. We enjoyed every minute of our stay in this cute little town and in this neat old hotel. Expect a very clean but old setting.

We Three Sisters decided to Meet in Florida at the Lakeside Inn in Mt. Dora and enjoy each other's company since we have not been together for over 6 years. Since I am the Middle Sister my Opinion counts the most or maybe it is due to the fact I live in Tavares, Florida so close to our destination. We... More

The staff is wonderful. The lobby, bar and restaurant are good, but the rooms are a dump!! Lakeside Inn promotes itself as a quaint, historic inn. Believe me the rooms aren't quaint, they are just old. They said many of their rooms are renovated. I had a "renovated room" and I don't think fresh paint and new-ish indoor plumbing is... More

From my days as a callow college student coming to FL during break, through Disney trips with my young daughters, I have detested Florida...the disregard for history, the profit-driven "attractions", the madness of Miami traffic. Then, on the invitation of a friend, driven mostly by a desire to escape this most recent endlessly frigid winter, I flew to Tampa (ugh)... More

We stayed at The Lakeside Inn in Mt. Dora, Florida. It is the oldest inn in the state of Florida, and President Cleveland and his wife stayed there after he retired from office. The hotel is quaint and charming, very clean, beautiful view of Lake Dora and a delightful place to stay. Excellent dining room as well. I highly recommend... More

This year was my third visit to the Lakeside Inn. As I pulled into the drive and saw the familiar line of rocking chairs on the long veranda - it felt like I'd come home. The staff was welcoming and helpful; many remembered me from previous visits. Except for breakfast on the veranda - I took most of my meals... More

This was our 2nd stay at the Lakeside Inn, again for an anniversary celebration. We did a weekend get-away special which was a very good value. Our room did not have a view, but it was clean and comfortable and perfectly adequate for the time that we spent in there. The best part of the Lakeside is sitting on the... More

This was our first trip to Mount Dora for a 2 night Valentine's Weekend stay. We chose the Lakeside Inn because we have had great luck in the past with Historic Hotels and the location on the Lake and in the heart of Mount Dora was just what we were looking for. We booked an "Inn Suite" online that featured... More
