Marco Island Lakeside Inn
Ranked #6 of 12 Hotels in Marco Island
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed March 14, 2013

Recently spent four nights on Marco Island staying at the quiet, conveniently located Marco Island Lakeside Inn. Our large, one bedroom suite on the second floor overlooked Marco Lake. It was a delight to sit on the balcony to watch the sun rise and the birds, ducks and turtles begin their day. Also a perfect place to enjoy a cocktail (or two) after a day of sightseeing. The suite was very clean, pleasantly decorated, the kitchen well equipped and the bed very comfortable. The staff and the innkeeper, Marcia, were very friendly and most helpful. As our weather was a little cool, we did not have the opportunity to enjoy the large, clean pool and the quaint sandy beach along the lake - next time! This is definitely a spot we would stay in again and one that we would highly recommend to friends and family.

We had stayed here before and were not disappointed this time (March 10-12). The soft beds, wicker decor and convenience to local attractions, as well as the hospitality offered by the innkeepers were welcomed as before. Their web site does not mention the WiFi availability, which provided good and reliable connection. Highly recommended!

Room Tip: Our previous rooms were on 2nd floor overlooking the lake. This time we were in the row of rooms tha...

Lakeside Inn is conveniently located in a quiet residential area of Marco Island. Staff is very helpful and friendly, providing fresh baked cookies, lemonade, maps, restaurant recommendations, directions, etc. The rooms are clean, comfortable and nicely decorated. There is WiFi in the rooms and a nice flat screen TV/blue ray player. Kitchenette was a real plus and was adequately stocked with dishes, coffee maker, etc. Check in/out was a breeze. The property is well-kept and parking is great. I'd stay there again.

Room Tip: I'm glad I got a poolside room because it was on the ground floor, next to parking, easy to carr...

I recently booked a last-minute stay here for a quick three day trip to Marco Island, and couldn't have been more pleased. Check in was quick and painless. We were directed to a room on the second floor, with a nice balcony with wicker chairs overlooking the lake.

Following a day of exhausting travel, which started at 1 a.m., we arrived tired and hungry in the late afternoon. Though I'd been to Marco Island previously, it had been a few years, so I didn't really recall the restaurant options. We were given several recommendations by the staff, all of which proved to be excellent choices. As others have noted, there's no restaurant within close walking distance, though we had a car, so it wasn't an issue.

The room was clean and comfortable. Although the carpet was worn in spots, this did not detract from the overall experience. It was very well equipped, with a full kitchen and two flat-screen TVs, as well as free wi-fi. And that shower! How I'd love to have that kind of water pressure at home! And the mini-beach out back was a nice touch. Another interesting item: our room (and, I assume, all of them) contained a guest book filled with comments of previous guests. It was great entertainment reading these, and the comments offered some excellent insight into things to do and see.

In summary, I'd recommend this property without reservation. The staff was very friendly, and seemed to really care about their guests. I look forward to returning.

I can't thank you enough for taking the time to write such a lengthy and inclusive review! I'm glad you enjoyed the great water pressure and I wish I had it in my home as well! It's also nice to know that our restaurant recommendations are still on the mark! We have made a lot of upgrades to the rooms and the property and it' nice to have it all noticed!

We'd love to have you stay with us again- last minute or not!

Peace, support and kindness mark this delightful place to stay when on busy, but beautiful Marco Island. It is always a treasure! The pool and beach beside the lake are so special for relaxation time. However, the beautiful collection of birds flying to the trees and over the water are a special treat to see gliding by. All the staff are friendly and want to help make this visit filled with comfort. All is perfectly cleaned each day to add to the joy of being there. It is a great second home and one wants to stay longer! It is a other reason to visit Marco island. The best is the Innkeeper, Marcia, who makes sure everything is PERFECT!

Room Tip: All are good

We stayed at this hotel as an alternative to one of the big expensive hotels on the beach. The staff was personable and attentive. The hotel itself has a small pool connected to it and a very short area next to the "lake" (more like a large pond), which was very nice. Calling it "lakeside" is a little bit of a stretch although it was good and full of wildlife, birds, turtles, etc. Meals were a slight problem for us since we didn't have a car and so had to walk a few blocks to get to a restaurant. One can get taxis for $6 to anywhere on the island but having breakfast closer would have been nice. (There are coffeemakers and coffee in the rooms, though.)They do have an area which seems like it could someday be transformed into a dining area. There are certain rooms that have balconies and others that don't. We did like this place and would recommend it with these caveats. We will probably be back.
