“Lovely Inn on Marco Island”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2012

My husband and I stayed for one night on a stop over from Tampa to Coconut Creek. The room was very nice all decorated with white wicker. We had a kitchenette in our room which would have been perfect for an extended stay. I thought the inn was terrific value. The inn is on a lake has a pool and a nice area outside the room to sit and relax. I expect soon they will have the ADA compliant pool lift so for anyone needing accessibility it is a perfect choice. I just received a lovely thank you note from the inn keeper...very nice touch.

Thank you for your kind review.You'll be please to know that we have just completed our first ADA compliant room (a Poolside Studio Suite) and just this week we received our ADA pool lift. Now all I have to do is figure out who installs it!

This was our first time at the Inn. The accommodations are wonderful - we overlooked the pool, beach and lake and we were thrilled with the view. Housecleaning came in every day and did a great job, and the office was very helpful. We were so impressed that we will be going back in May of 2013 and we are taking a 2-bedroom, which is very spacious. There are barbeque grills and we took advantage of them. We highly recommend the Lakeside Inn.

Room Tip: If you can use a 1-bedroom, get the ones that face the lake - they have a screened-in balony that is...

Thanks for taking the time to let us know how much you enjoyed our inn. I'm sure you'll love the 2-Bedroom with it's huge deck overlooking the lake even more next May!

Stayed 3 nights at Lakeside Inn on Marco Island over Thanksgiving.
Staff were great, very friendly and a font of information about the island. Unit was clean, very well furnished and comfortable. Plenty of room in a suite on the upper level with well equipped kitchen? In fact we stayed an extra night than planned. In a very peaceful location overlooking the lake but only a short walk from shops and restaurants. However need to drive to get to the beaches.

Room Tip: Top floor has better view

Travelling solo, I stayed three nights at Marco Island Lakeside Inn. Cannot say enough great things about the staff and Inn! First class service, rooms very cozy and sparkling clean.
Felt very safe and already planning my next trip back. Staff were remarkable with helping me with food ideas, places to eat and even went to the trouble to find me a spin class in Marco Island. By the way I highly recommend the Crazy Flamingo for a casual dinner.

Room Tip: I had a one bedroom with kitchen and living room. Bedroom faced the lake and was quiet and peaceful...

You don't have to pay top dollar to be happy and comfortable, marco island lakeside inn has what you need.
Great service, clean rooms and awesome staff.
I stayed at this cozy hotel for a fishing trip to 10,000 islands and it was perfect for me. When I go back, I most certainly stay there again.

Thanks guys and great job.
