Food was great, atmosphere is quaint. Sat outside on the porch overlooking the water. It's a nice place to relax and enjoy the breeze, and have a glass of lemonade and a salad. Had a lovely lunch. Service people were lovely. The menu is avg pricing.

Stayed here a couple of nights a few weeks back. We enjoyed the historic hotel however in some areas somewhat dated. We stayed in standard room, 2 beds, its small but had a large closet which was nice and decent but small bathroom. The payoff is the location and grounds. The pool is nice overlooking Dora lake and and the... More

The town of Mt. Dora evidently has no noise ordinance. LIVE bands perform OUTDOORS on bar decks till all hours of the night. We were up both nights with the windows rattling from the electric bass & drums at the bar next to the hotel. Tried to sleep in the car, but mosquitoes and humidity drove us back to the... More

My girlfriend and I decided to visit Mt. Dora for the weekend and we had a great stay at Lakeside Inn. As it Florida's most historic lodging, we did expect smaller bedroom and bathroom sizes with old-style doors and furnishings. It was a different experience from other hotels, but it was magnificient in its own way. Only slight nuisance was... More

After reading some of the reviews for the Lakeside Inn, I was really hesitant to book a room here. When I asked to see the room first, the lady at the front desk accommodated and I was pleasantly surprised. The rate was reasonable (we booked the room on a Sunday night). The inn is old-fashioned, but not outdated. The outside... More

The location on the lake is great. The old style Inn of the main building is very pretty and the porch is a great place to sit in a rocker and have a drink. However for the price, the rooms are a bit old. The rooms were clean, however the bathroom was very small and outdated. The walls were so... More

I have made reservations at the Lakeside Inn in Mount Dora Fl. I would like to acknowledge the extraordinary efforts of the hotels reservation representative. Her name is Hermanda. I need to acknowlege her patience, the time she took with me and how she made my reservation happen. If this is an example of the gracious nature of the staff,... More

In town for a wedding a few blocks away. Grounds were nice. Pool was nice. Close proximity to some great restaurants and bars... unfortunately that is the only positive thing I can say. Rooms are outdated and not in a charming "Old Florida" way.. bed was the most uncomfortable nights sleep I've had in 20 years. Bathroom was nasty. We... More

There was an Art Festival going on in Mt. Dora, so we got to the hotel at 9:30 in the morning to make sure we could get a parking space. I told the hotel clerk that I knew we were way to early for check-in, but if we could check-in earlier than 3:00p.m., I would really appreciate it. I got... More

This is an old favourite when working in the north Orlando area. Set on the water front of the gorgeously historic Lake Dora, while I'm in the area for business I would love to bring my wife here for a weekend. The rooms are probably edging towards tired but the charm and setting compensates - sit on the verandah (or... More
