I don't want to give this place a bad review because I love the "old school" flavor of anything and this place definitely has it. Just want to prepare you folks. I did not have high expectations as I read some reviews and understood the type of place it was. However, I do enjoy having a view from my room... More

When we first pulled up to the Lakeside Inn, I was a little cautious. Sure it was clean and well kept, but it may not look like your typical hotel. I shouldn't have been all that concerned, "can't judge a book by its cover and all". This is a superb, cozy resort level room at a local inn type price.... More

We enjoyed our one-night stay here. The rooms are small, yet comfortable, the hosts were very accommodating. The view is wonderful. The area is nice. The only complaint I might have is there wasn't a lot of hot water... but other than that - great experience!

I came to Florida for vacation and stood again in the Lakeside Inn. A Swiss friend told me about that wonderful picturesque place at the Alligator Lake. It was the best choice I could do. From the owner and his charming wife I got a very warm welcome and then they showed me a really clean and quiet room with... More

Found this gem as a last resort, and am so happy that I did. The caretakers are awesome, so helpful and gracious. The room was perfect for our stay as we were there for a family reunion. The view is so nice and the weather even though not perfect was on point. Enjoyed our short stay so much, that we... More

We found this inn very charming - the room was just big enough for the two of us, was very clean and the staff was extremely friendly. We loved sitting outside in the screened in porch in the evening then in the morning sitting outside by the water. Its not fancy by any means but it has its own cuteness... More

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
