We were a bit misled by the reviews that spoke of breakfast and beer. Yes, they did seem to sell cold beer, but we were never offered breakfast. Coffee was not cheap in the café. The place is clean, yes, and the view of the lake is lovely. But it is VERY BASIC, more like a fishing camp to me.... More

This is an old motor lodge right on Alligator Lake that has not been remodeled but has been newly painted and is quite clean and pleasant. The rooms are small, as they were in the old motor lodge days, but clean, bright and comfortable. (Bring your own hairdryer.) The big reason to come here, other than the price, is the... More

I have to admit I was very cautious when booking this hotel. I was unfamiliar to the area and had my doubts. Even driving into the parking lot I was a little intimidated. The Lakeside Inn is a very old school Florida motel. However the rooms were clean & well kept, even updated in some capacity. A very safe, quiet... More

The lakeside inn is a great place to stay for every tourist. The owners were extremely friendly and even had a beer with us. We've met people from different nationalities there and the rooms are in great conditions. Viewing the sunset from the pier is an unforgettable experience.

Stayed the night last night. It was our second trip here(this time no one was called away.) Clean, cozy, out of the way. Definitely worth the drive, love it here. We will be back. :) The sunset last night was beautiful.

My husband and I stayed here a week while visiting his family in St. Cloud. It is clean, comfortable, friendly and offers an excellent hot breakfast in the cafe! The location is awesome: on a lake, away from city (and barred windows on buildings that I saw). Jodi waited on us and sang us songs she had composed, and played... More

Nice family owned older motel that has been updated. Owner and his family are very friendly. Directly on the lake with its own screened in patio, boat ramp and dock. Although the building is the older block style, the rooms are nice sized and have been redone, fresh paint, flat screen tv, free wi fi, kichenette with refrigerator, microwave and... More

Spent the morning in the mini suite before being called away there before being called away. Quaint and wonderful setting. Right on the lake. Clean rooms. Our only complaint was how tiny the shower was.
