We decided to stay at Lakeside because I have a disability which makes traveling far away difficult. I am obsessed with the Victorian era so that was basically the whole reason we chose this place. So.... after driving from Pittsburgh, we were excited to stay in this Victorian hotel. Unfortunately, it was the first day of the season and freezing... More

We have been enjoying this wonderful old hotel for years, however this Labor Day weekend was disappointing. The charm of this old hotel has worn off. This time it was just plain dirty and run down. While the hotel is run by the Lakeside Chautauqua, the amateur management charges professional prices, with rooms running toward $200/night. We checked in and... More

Quaint, charming, lovely, quiet all describe this historic hotel. The room we had was small but clean, comfy bed, clean bathroom. Situated in Lakeside, Oh. So much to do...grab a golf cart and see the little town with old and new homes. Take an ice cream and watch the sunset over Lake Erie from a lakeside bench. Good restaurant, HUGE... More

I have not stayed here recently but have had theSunday Buffet at Hotel Lakeside. Very delicious. Very attentive young people as waiters and waitresses. Beautiful view of Lake Erie. Very charming historic hotel.

Wonderful historic ambience. Nice view of the lake. Clean room. No amenities (not even a bottle of water in the empty soda machine). Worst mattress I have ever slept on - so uncomfortable that I couldn't sleep. There are 10-12 parking spots adjacent to the hotel - good luck getting one. No-frills continental breakast - which is all they advertise.... More

My mom and I stay at Hotel Lakeside once a year. If you look at my other reviews You'll notice that I gravitate toward high-end, boutique hotels. This does not fall into either of those categories. What I love about this hotel is the ambiance--unrivaled by anywhere else in the world. The hotel itself is a historic landmark and they've... More

We ate lunch in the Hotel Lakeside Dining room while attending the West Ohio Annual Conference of the United Methodist Church session at Lakeside. Our server, Andrea, was courteous, knowledgable and helpful. The food was delicious, and we chose a healthy entree. We had a lovely view of the grounds and a view that extended out over Lake Erie. I... More

This summer we stayed at the historic Hotel Lakeside in the "Chataqua on Lake Erie" community of Lakeside, OH. The old hotel is charming and the service is outstanding; however, the rooms are tiny and in somewhat shabby condition. The location can't be beat and if you are lucky to reserve a lake-front room with view, it is still delightful.... More

The reviews here must be primarily from those who stayed in the more expensive rooms, because the cheaper rooms don't have the same ambience whatsoever. Though the place served its purpose during a 3-night stay, the accommodations left a lot to be desired. We were especially frustrated not to have Internet access in our room, as the website reports that... More

This is an historic hotel and looks like a great place to stay. In our room we found a pair of underware in the closet, the room had not been used in a long time so everything was not clean (very dusty), cobwebs hanging from the lights, spider webs in the bathroom and last but not least a booger was...
