Our second stay at the Hotel Lakeside. This year's trip had some problems. Our room had a large roof leak in the bathroom which rendered the sink unusable (water leaking directly onto the light fixture. The shower had a shortage of hot water. The "included breakfast" was actually a discount on a Sunday brunch that did not start until 10:30... More

When considering Lakeside or the Hotel Lakeside there are several things that you need to keep in mind. Firstly, this is Lakeside Chautauqua; it's not, say, Geneva-on-the-Lake, so you are at a dry, smoke-free campus which was designed, laid out and built in the late nineteenth century. Yes, parking is more than a small challenge at Lakeside and specifically at... More

We've been going to Lakeside for twenty years. We used to have a home there. We now go back a few weekends a summer and stay at a bed and breakfast or the Hotel Lakeside. This hotel needs restoration with updates. I believe, there are plans in the future to do that. Many of the rooms are "much" better than... More

We stayed here for youth annual conference, and i'm glad we did. I liked that there was a beach, however the beach was crowed and not clean. The people at the front desk were friendly. I was not expecting such a wonderful room! It was clean and spacious. Loved the room! I liked the large porch the most. You could... More

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
