“Great little hotel in beautiful location. We absolutely loved it!”
Reviewed March 20, 2014

We stayed at the Lakeside Inn in a double room suite pool side. It was beautiful, well equiped with friendly staff. They really try to accomodate everything you need including pool towels, books, toys for kids on loan. Would recommend. Absolutely loved it!

Room Tip: Room 102 was very quiet at the end of the room block

Jacquilina, I’ am happy to hear that you felt the rooms were beautiful and our staff was so friendly to you and your family!

We hope you see you again!

We really enjoyed our stay. The resort is centrally located which made it easy to commute to other locations on the island and Naples. The pool was the very clean with the appropriate amount of lounge chairs and tables.The rooms were spotless and contained all the amenities needed to make out stay comfortable. The most pleasing aspect of our stay was the resort staff. The cleaning staff were pleasant and did a great job. Jeff and Lily were outstanding representatives and extremely helpful. We can't wait to go back.

We had friends come down and stay just after we left and they were also extremely happy with their stay.

Room Tip: Second Floor overlooking the lake was great

Dear Tim,
Thanks for the wonderful review! When our guests are happy, we are happy! And even more so when you write ”Can’t wait to come back.”- That is exactly what we hope will happen- that all our guests will enjoy themselves and be back to visit again. I am delighted to hear that Lily and Jeff did such a great job and will let them know you mentioned them, along with the housekeepers who work really hard so that your room is spotless! Jeff gets all the applause for the very clean pool.
By the way, I met your friends and they told me you had enjoyed your trip down here! Hope to see you again soon!
Warm wishes,
Marcia

We have stayed at several places on Marco Island and, by far, this is the best. Our room was very clean and very comfortable. We loved the down duvet! We found the office staff to be very helpful. Our days were busy and it was so nice to have a comfortable place to relax at the end of the day.

Green Features: We were glad to see recycle bins under the sink. Most unusual to find a place that practices what it preaches.

There are few words that warm my heart like “by far, the best place we’ve stayed on Marco” do! We’re glad you found the room very clean and very comfortable and also that you appreciated that we are doing are best to be a green hotel with our in-room recycling bins and fresh towels as requested. You might also enjoy knowing that we also save our left-over bars of soap and send them to a non-profit called Global Soap Project that recycles them into brand new soap for third world countries who are desperate for a simple bar of soap to prevent germ related health problems.

Love to see you again!

Kind Regards,

We are sorry to be leaving both Marco and the Lakeside Inn. It exceeded our expectations. So much more character and more in keeping with the area than the large hotels which in my view are often soulless and much the same where ever you are. Not the Lakeside Inn which was perfectly situated overlooking a lake. We found access to everywhere very easy from this location. It was quiet and peaceful. The suite we had was well equipped, very, very clean, well presented with comfortable beds. Guests were considerate and all went quiet by 11 pm. Pool area is well maintained.

Reception were helpful, check in and out simple and fast.

I can not offer one negative about this Inn. A marvellous antidote to Miami. We highly recommend.

We always aim to exceed your expectations so I’m pleased we were able to do that during your recent visit with us! We also try to maintain that “character” you enjoyed, since there is so little of it left nowadays. It’s especially nice when a guest has nothing negative to say about the inn, although we do appreciate that kind of feedback as well. We’re so glad you enjoyed the peace and quiet, the lake and the cleanliness our housekeeping staff strive to maintain.

We’d love to have you visit us again!

The Inn was OK and would have been probably a lot better if we were looking for a more self catering environment. It had a very well equipped kitchen. The rooms were good but it was a bit motel like. However, some things just didn't work, for instance when we enquired about local restaurants at reception we were not told that local cabs had a complimentary service to virtually all restaurants on the Island, neither were we told about a very local and apparently good restaurant.
It was also the Island which we found a bit strange, very built up and very residential/suburban very limited access to the beaches.

Room Tip: All the rooms were much the same as far as we could tell. I suppose if you have problems with carry...

Thank you for your taking the time to review your stay with us. Your opinions do matter – we value all feedback from our guests, whether positive or negative, as we are constantly striving to improve the services that we provide. I am glad you found the kitchen to be fully equipped. I would like to address your comment about the restaurant advice that you received. There are over 60 locally owned restaurants on the island and many are excellent. Dining is a very personal choice, so I apologize if we missed the mark on choosing the one you felt was best for you. There are approximately 10 restaurants on the island who offer complimentary taxi service for their guests, however, I am sorry that we did not tell you which those 10 restaurants were.

Thank you again for your comments. If you would like to discuss your visit further, please don’t hesitate to email me at mmandel@marcoislandlakeside.com or call 800.729.0216.

Lakeside was a nice, clean place to stay. If I were staying for several days we would certainly consider staying again. It was nice to have a kitchen and I personally loved the hammock on the deck. An easy drive to the beach and eating establishments.
