My husband and I booked one night at Lakside Inn at the end of June and we were absolutely impressed with the hospitality and friendliness that we received. This place is an intimate and quaint motel style resort, with boat docks and a gorgeous lake! With June being the off season the owners were doing some minor upgrades to the... More

I really wanted to like this place. Found it on the Internet. Lake pictures looked amazing. I booked two nights because my wife and I were driving in from Miami for a symposium in St. Cloud. The 1st red flag came when the owner -- who, indeed, is very nice -- wasn't sure of the price and tried to charge... More

My wife and I wanted to spend a weekend together and enjoy the lakes (this is a chain of lakes). I had seen this place a few years before while on an outing with a group of jet skiers and made a reservation. We had some questions so called and were very pleasantly surprised at how friendly the staff was.... More

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.
