We stayed in the Gables building in a room facing the downtown area. We do not recommend any of these room because the bands from downtown establishments are very loud and run late into the night and feel like they are right in your room. If you like old woodwork, very dated plumbing, and dated and poor décor, then the... More

My husband and I came here for our anniversary. We love old Florida and were excited to go antiquing in Mt. Dora. Unfortunately, we found our room to be less charming than this hotels location and the town. We requested a renovated room, but our bed seemed as old as the hotel itself. Furthermore, the mustiness drove my allergies crazy.... More

You must try the Cosmo at the bar in the hotel served by Sebastian. The best ever. The breakfast was fresh and tasty. Sebastian is a very nice host with perfect bar tendering skills on par with Tom Cruise. Looked after 2 English ladies very well.

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
