We were disappointed. We stayed in the 1 bedroom suite. Size was good. The kitchen is old. The bed was small for us. Two people in the bed was a rough night sleep. Bring you own toiletries including shampoos etc. The restaurant wasn't open and hasn't been for 2 years!. It is not in a great neighborhood. The lake is more like a pond with apparently alligators! We didn't see any. Did see turtles and birds. Pull out sofa was horrendous. We have a tween and he was miserable!

MarcoMarciaBabe, General Manager at Marco Island Lakeside Inn, responded to this review, June 18, 2008
We are sorry to disppoint this guest, but we do supply toiletries in every room. We offer the Gilchrist & Soames brand and each room has Conditioing Shampoo, Glycerin hand soap and Skincare bath soap. We also supply cotton balls and Q-tips .

We also supplu fluffy monomgrammed towels. Each 1-Bedrooom suite has 4 bath towels, 4 hand towels and 4 face cloths. We try to be environmentally friendly, so we provide a wicker basket on the bed for you to place any dirty towels that you want replaced , and we ask that you set the basket outside your room and the housekeepers will replace your towels with clean ones. It is our normal practice to let guets know about this upon check-in but there is also a notice about it in the room. If you need additional towels or toiletries, the office staff is glad to get you anything you need.

The bed that was too small for comfort was a standard queen-size double pillow top bed.

We still regret that we did not have the opportunity to exceed this guest's expectations. The first we knew of her displeasure was on Trip Advisor.

A good value, even though not oceanfront. Extremely neat and clean rooms with full kitchen amenities. With the beach only 2 miles away I would rather spend half the money and enjoy the small scale Mom and Pop atmosphere. We will be back

After reading all the reviews, we were very disappointed. We stayed in the 1 bedroom suite. Size was good, but everything else was awful. The kitchen is straight out of 1962. The bed dipped to the middle, making two people in the bed very uncomfortable. The restaurant wasn't open. It is in a not so great neighborhood. Nothing within walking distance.

While in Florida to attend a wedding and visit relatives we decided to stay over and visit Marco Island for several days.
The Marco Island Lakeside Inn provided the perfect location. The price was about 1/2 the cost of an ocean beach location, however provided a small beach on a private lake for relaxing as well as a nice pool and very comfortable accomodations. Nicely decorated and very well maintained. I have recommended this place to several friends and will be back myself.

The Marco Island Lakeside Inn was reasonably priced compared to the gulf-front hotels. We weren't sure what to expect, however we were pleasantly surprised at the comfort & cleanliness of the inn and the friendliness of the staff. We stayed in a one bedroom suite on the second floor. (There was no public elevator, but it is only two floors.) Our suite was completely furnished with everything we could have wanted--cooking utensils, dishes, dishwasher, ironing board/iron, hair dryer, extra blankets, and even a safe. The lighting was very good, it had cable TV, and there was a screened porch/balcony overlooking the lake. The lake is more of a "pond", but very pretty and serene. There were all kinds of birds and we thoroughly enjoyed the ambiance. The Marco Island Lakeside Inn is in a residential area and is a couple of miles from a public beach. It is an older building that has been remodeled and is a very pleasant place to spend a week on Marco Island.

  • Liked — Clean, friendly, price.
