I was a little apprehensive to book this hotel based on some of the online reviews that I read about it. Since I was traveling with my sister, I wanted a room with two beds which is hard to find in Mt. Dora. The Lakeside Inn was a wonderful surprise! The historic hotel is charming, the setting on the lake... More

When you arrive you are reminded of the classic old hotels in the northeast; old,huge porch with rockers, etc. The staff is very friendly and helpful but because it was off-season some amenities are not available. The room we had was clean, neat and old. The mattress was good but furniture and bath are very dated.. We had cocktails the... More

Wanted to stay someplace that was relaxing and different from your the typical modern hotels so after reading reviews and wanting to check out Mount Dora I decided to try Lakeside Inn and I wasn't disappointed! It was old but clean and very comfortable just as it should be and it was such a beautiful place and so close to... More

It's a historic hotel so you cannot expect all the bells and whistles. You can't even expect elevators. It's a lot of stairs, so beware. That said, my husband and I loved it. Very quaint. Staff is friendly, food is good. The location is beautiful on the lake. I recommend sitting out by the dock for sunset. It's right downtown... More

If you have a dog and want to stay here, then expect to be treated like a second class citizen. Below is the couch in our room, which is awful. The whole room is old and awful. No coffee and no wifi. It has dressers that are scuffed from the 70's and this is your entertainment center. This looks like... More

A visit to the Lakeside Inn is like stepping back in time ~ THE essence of "Old Florida!" You can just imagine everyone walking the grounds in the early 1900's. They have gone the extra mile to maintain the integrity of the property and the buildings. Thankfully they have added a/c, which is most appreciated in July. Ha. The view... More

The atmosphere overall was relaxing and there was a nice view of the lake. The front porch of the main building wIth the rocking chairs was nice. The room was extremely small. The bed and pillows were not comfortable. There is no refrigerator for any good or beverages that you might bring. Friends that checked in with us were told... More

My husband and I stayed at the Lakeside Inn to celebrate our 33rd Wedding Anniversary on July 29-31, 2016. We had a great time staying at the Inn. This was a wonderful weekend getaway and we were amazed at all the Inn had to offer. It was refreshing to sit by the dock and look out over the lake, to... More
