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.

We broke down on our way south to the keys on the Florida Turnpike. What a great way to start a vacation! We got towed to the Ford dealer in St. Cloud and then had to find a room. Went on trip advisor and found this place.turned out to be awesome! Pros: clean room, great TV, great selection of channels,... More

Some friends and I just stayed for a night at this classically quaint hotel. It's located right on the edge of Alligator Lake, and there are plenty of picturesque docks, and of course a spectacular water view. Adam and his family were very accommodating, and his daughter even serenaded us with her violin at breakfast! It's not a fancy place,... More

We always stay in room #4 atleast once a month. The beds are very comfortable and the room is always clean. Adam, the owner, and his family are wonderful, very pleasant people! The restaurant has great food. Sausage, eggs and peppers are our favorite for breakfast:) We bring our dog and our bikes and always have a wonderful time! The... More

We stayed here one night due to an evening wedding. Thought it would be wise instead of driving back to Orlando at night. I'm sorry to say we should have driven the 50 minutes home. This is a really old building & area. I had heard it described as old & quaint. Old yes-quaint no. The people managing it were... More

The charge is per room. Three of us stayed in a room with 2 double beds, which was very economical. Although the furniture in the room is a bit dated, all the appliances and furniture are still in good working condition. The owner/operator is very friendly and easy-going. They did everything we asked to make our stay an enjoyable experience.... More

Stayed here "accidentally" after getting stranded on the road and then I didn't want to leave. Many good things to say about this place, but I have to start with the hospitality of the owner/manager. Adam & his wife checked to make sure we were comfortable, helped us with our cargo trailer, & were generally friendly & helpful without being... More

We recently stayed 3 nights at Lakeside as we were in town to attend a wedding close by. I honestly didn't know what to expect but was pleasantly surprised at what we found. There were actually many of us staying at the hotel and I can tell you that we all found it to be a great experience. If your... More

I stayed at Lakeside Inn with my son, March 2014. As I am coming from Colorado, it was great to have the warm weather. Everyday was in the 70's and 80's. We enjoyed every bit of staying at Lakeside Inn which is located in St. Cloud Florida. I had experienced that St. Cloud is a wonderful town, great friendly people... More

First of all, ignore all comments prior to 2013 or so, as they were under different management, the restaurant was open for 2 meals a day during the week, and three on Fridays and Saturdays, and the prices were lower. Now, however, under new management, the rooms have been updated. They all have fridge, microwave, and coffee maker with coffee... More
