Marco Island Lakeside Inn

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed May 27, 2013

We spent a week in Florida and Marco Island Inn was definitely our favourite place to stay. The accommodation was situated in a lovely quiet neighbourhood and the suite attractively decorated and ideal for us. The staff of this boutique style hotel was very welcoming and friendly. Excellent nearby restaurants and a pleasant walk to beautiful beaches. Very convenient for Everglade tours. We have already recommended the Inn to others.

My boyfriend and I stayed at Lakeside for two nights. We found our room to be very clean and comfortable, with everything in working order. The staff here truly cares about their customers. They accommodated us when we needed to stay an extra night (during April!), since weather delayed our kayaking trip. Also, they offered to let us leave our vehicle parked in their lot if necessary while we were gone. Highly recommend! You feel as though you've made a few friends when you leave!

Hi Julia,

I'm happy you feel that you had made a few friends here when you leave, because you did! I remember your kayak and the weather problems you had, and we are always glad to allow you to leave your car here while you kayak around the area. I'm also delighted that you found our rooms to be clean and comfortable. Our staff works here because they love this little inn and I am glad that that attitude was obvious to you. We look forward to seeing you again!

Wow, so glad we did some searching on the island and decided to make a change to stay at the Lakeside Inn! This will definitely be our pick for future stays! Our experience was pleasant right from the beginning. We were greeted by friendly helpful staff in the bright cheery office, which featured, cookies, lemonade and oranges. Our room was spotless, fresh smelling, and very spacious. We were really impressed that it was a little suite equipped with a stove, nice size refrigerator, and dishes! although its an older Inn, it has been modified with all the essentials and done so in a charming way! We were only there for one night but can't wait to go back!

We enjoyed our stay at Marco Island Lakeside Inn very much. The staff was very gracious and the rooms were clean and spacious for a couple sharing a one-bedroom suite. The pool was clean and warm for early May and not crowded. My only complaint would be the distance from the beach. You have to have a car, and you have to pay to park to use the beach. The beaches were very nice and tons of shells. However, there is a very nice park/recreational center within a few minutes of Marco Inn that we really enjoyed. We would stay here again if we ever return to this area!

Room Tip: I would pay a little extra for the one-bedroom instead of an efficiency! We had a grandchild with us...

We aim to feel cozy and comfortable, and always spotlessly clean! The beach is about 2 miles away, but if you like bike riding, you can rent bikes very reasonably and there is no fee to go to the beach on a bike- only if you are parking a car. I'm glad you had the chance to enjoy Mackle Park, it is a one of the favorite places on the island for both vistors and residents.


Thanks for the review!

We had a delightful stay at the the Marco Island Lakeside Inn. Marcia, the manager, was professional, helpful, and friendly. The room was extremely clean, nicely appointed, and well furnished. We had been in the Keys for a few days and were working our way up to the Venice area, so it was a real plus that there was a laundry room on site. While we did not use the BBQ, other families did, then had their meals under the tiki hut. The pool area was clean and inviting. While some individuals have complained that this Inn is located on a lake, we found it be very peaceful and enjoyed the wild life in the surrounding area. We will definitely stay here again when we are in the area. We just received a very nice note from Marcia upon on our return home thanking us for our stay! How often does this happen? Very professional and courteous! Thanks again for a very nice visit.

We came down to Marco and ended staying here for a long weekend. The condo was very clean and had a lot of room for the four of us. When we went to check in, everyone was so friendly and polite and made us feel right at home. Our room had a large deck that overlooked the pond. Would definitely stay here again.
