This place is not a good value for the money. It is basically a wedding mill, and the Saturday we were there some of the wedding guests took over the bar area of the bistro cafe and were loud and raucous, very frat like. Guests at the hotel who were trying to enjoy their lunch were actually asking them to... More

The entire hotel is historic with the main structure being over a century. I stayed in the "newer" section built in 1929. The rooms are comfortable and lake views are available. They are clean, authentic and in good condition. I would have been happier if the windows had not been painted shut, but there are few times in Florida when... More

That is the key word to describe this place. It was ok for one night and the location was perfect. We did get a lake view, but the rooms are truly vintage. The staff was great and we enjoyed are breakfast with Floyd. The rooms are overpriced for what you get, but for this vintage hotel it is all about... More

I don't think they even try for charming outside of the public rooms! I have seen Travel 8's that had more style! Kind of sad really- cheap wicker chairs with thin soiled mats (calling them cushions would go too far on the plus side). Our king room in the carriage house had nothing even vaguely beautiful- old mismatched furniture that... More

Look I know this place is a landmark. Great view of Lake Dora but that is where it ends. The place has character and Moldy musty smell. I just came back from a weekend there with my wife. Until they tear this musty dump down we are going elsewhere. It wreaks of mold. The food at Tremains is a 2... More

We have stayed here for years and enjoyed our stay again. Went to Renningers again. The Inn was great. Their was an Irish Wedding and really enjoyed the music and we even met the bride and groom. Stayed in the same room with two double beds and was great. It's an old Inn but nicely done. Enjoy the porch area... More

We were not happy with our stay here. We paid $199 plus taxes a night for a very small room with a queen bed, phone, old tv and dresser. The carpet was old, windows were painted shut, bed uncomfortable, ac/heater needed a clean filter. I was coughing like crazy. Trying to take a shower was an experience. The water went... More

We stayed at the hotel on Saturday 9 January. The receptionist was off-hand and grumpy and we were shunted into an annexe with a view of next door's trash cans. The room was cold; there were no blankets on the bed (or in the closet) and the AC/heating didn't work. We saw a fellow guest leaving with pillows and blankets... More

Your first view of the Lakeside Inn takes your breath away and propels you back in time. The long porch with the white rockers is a movie set, for sure. The lobby is beautiful with time-aged furnishings. Nice bar with friendly people. Very romantic. We actually had the most helpful staff who gave us a brochure of the town and... More
