4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We loved it there, and plan to return. The room was nice, restaurant there was reasonably priced, very cool old (very old) barroom. The building was built in the late 1800's, so if you are expecting a new Embassy Suites, yes, you will be disappointed. But if you want to dial into the charm of the whole Mount Dora vibe,... More

My husband stayed here for a 20th anniversary weekend with the "Escape Package". The charm of this property is in its history. If you are looking for new and contemporary then this hotel is not for you! Sitting on the porch at sunset overlooking to cobblestones and the lake made me feel transported back to 1883. We loved it.

Our room was in the center of one the long out buildings, at the bottom of a stairway with a very loud ice machine under those stairs and across from an entry door. Noise from anyone walking by; needs updating for insulation and bathroom. An already resurfaced tube needs resurfacing again, the blow dryer blew a fuse we couldn't get... More

We were promised an early check in- upon arrival at 1:30 we were told it was not available until 3- no explanation, apology, nothing. Although location is very nice, the rooms and grounds-both inside and out-need a great deal of repairs, paint, etc. I did not smell mold or must-only a pleasant air-freshened type of smell- but did wake up...

I visited for a friends wedding as I was a groomsmen. My fiancé chose not to come down at the last minute simply because it was too costly for both of us to go as we live 9 hours away. She canceled her room a day before and accepted the penalty of losing her deposit by not giving 48 hours... More

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
