Sitting in a porch rocker with the buzz of children down at the dock on a warm summer day, reading a novel in the Victorian Parlor, and chatting with friends over dinner are one-of-a-kind, not-to-be-missed experiences at the Hotel Lakeside, in Lakeside, Ohio. Close your eyes and you are one hundred years in the past. Unfortunately, the rooms reflect that... More

The hotel dates to 1873. It is historic. It was reclaimed from decline i the 1970's. Porch is nice, views are great. We had a 1 double bed room. Antique/ period furniture. Bed was ok. Bath was small and adequate. There are no TV's here. They employ HS and college kids. They just make the beds and leave fresh towels,... More

Went with 2 friends and didn't find it as clean as we hoped - spider web on inside window, dirty fan blades. Very small rooms, not impressed with furnishings in hotel. Nice big lobby with piano was nice, nice dining room with good continental breakfast. Enjoyed sitting on porch to play games and relax. Beautiful flowers and grounds. Pricey when... More

We arrived at Hotel Lakeside already aware of its lovely porch and lobby -- we'd been to Lakeside before and had stayed at the sister property and thought we'd try the Victorian gem by the lake. We were "greeted" at reception by someone who managed to be both curt and condescending. NB there is very limited parking at the hotel,... More

If you like Victoriana, quiet, and peace, this is the place for you. This hotel was built in the 19th century and has been gradually restored and maintained over the years. The rooms are charming with period pieces in each room and period-type wallpaper. There is a large, screened-in, wraparound porch that overlooks Lake Erie. You can sit there forever... More

Hotel Lakeside is a 19th century hotel within Chautauqua Lakeside. The rooms are very basic and small (one straight-backed chair, no room for a desk). There are no distractions like a TV, though there is free Wi-fi. It's a fading Victorian Queen that has charm and a very basic restaurant. We did not have a lake view, which would have... More

We had dinner on a busy Sunday night of July 4th week. The lobster bisque was delicious. My fish was properly cooked. There is no wine as this is a religious vacation spot. Once was enough, but it was a pleasant experience.

...the staff was very accommodating of our large group. The beef and potatoes were excellent. Old, Victorian building on the lake--very quaint and scenic. Would recommend the Sunday brunch. Good experience.

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
