This hotel is located on the stretch of Mall road with the lake in front of it. This is the best part for the hotel. Other than that it is mostly a budget property and it does offer good value, but only for the price conscious traveler. Staff seems disinterested but we spent less time at the hotel

All this was still ok as the first 2 days were fine. Post that we left for auli and paid tips to the waitors... More

Lake Side Inn is a very good hotel with an excellent lake side view. We stayed here for 3 days and enjoyed the rooms, service, food with ambience of lake side view. It's a very Good place and reasonably priced. The only issue could be parking if you have got the car, otherwise very much recommended. Huzayf

There are few option for the rooms with Lake side view and Hotel rooms are comparatively small in size. Buffet Breakfast was included in the tariff and food quality was ok.... More

Bang on the mall road, located in centre of the mall. But that's it. Rooms in which we stayed are hardly 10 by 8. Fits just a small double bed and a tv unit some where. Bathroom is just 4 by 4 by 6 feet. It's hard to wash face let alone the shower. Both bed linen and toiletries are... More

Only thing you might like, once you cross the mall road in front of the hotel you can take a jump directly into nainital lake. Location is good nearby main mall road city center. They have got few lake view rooms as I stayed in one of them, you will get a good lake view and its really looks wonderful... More

The location of the hotel is the best but since it was created long ago, room space is very less and doesn't give the modern feel. The hotel is located lake side and gives clear picture of nainital beauty. I would suggest you to better look for other than this, though that would be little costly.

We moved to this hotel after a nightmare of a stay in Hotel Anamika the previous day. There's nothing to rave about this hotel. It is a decent and cheap place to stay. This is a good hotel if you are on a budget, but if you want comfort and luxury look elsewhere. Hotel Alka nextdoor seems good. One of... More

If you are in Nainital, stay on mall road even if you get an average accommodation. And it is on the mall. Right in the middle of action in the lake city. OK that it is just average. Small rooms but nice and clean (to some extent). Food is costly and I did not even tried (but who eats in... More
