The staff was very helpful when we needed to change to a different room. They also caught a potential billing issue so that it would not appear on our credit card. In addition, the continental breakfast was very good and the person handling it made sure it was constantly refreshed and the area kept clean.

Room Tip: If a handicapped room is required, be sure and ask for an ADA compliant room and be specific about y...

We stayed here for one night and really enjoyed the hotel and the area. The rooms were clean, staff friendly and we really enjoyed our stay. There is a paved walking train in front of the hotel also. Will stay again when in the area!

There just for one night on business. Slept well. Friendly staff. Workout room is very limited, and no easy walking outside to be had. Breakfast had no fresh fruit, but still better than most hotels in this category that I have stayed at.

Thank you for staying with us. We normally have bananas at the breakfast bar, and I apologize if this was not the case the morning you joined us. Thank you for the feedback. In addition, the Lake County Biking/Jogging Trail runs right through our property, and we apologize for not being able to point that out to you. We look forward to having the opportunity to serve you again on your next stay.

We've been to Mt. Dora before and wanted a change from the pricey, crowded B & Bs that wanna charge New England prices but have nothing else in common with the New England inn experience. Tavares is only a few minutes away and this HIE is terrific. The have large, comfortable rooms with a decent breakfast choice. We rented bikes for a day ride and the shop is in Tavares, anyway. You can take a short drive to Mt. Dora and do whatever you like there, then leave the crowds for some peace and quiet. The staff are very nice and the service is good. I recommend this HIE to anyone who plans to visit the area.

We booked this hotel for a group reunion and we were all very pleased with the accomodations and the employees. The Director of Sales, Alex Cook was very helpful and experienced. The Front Desk girls were pleasant and helpful with every question we asked. The rooms were very clean, beds comfortable and it was great to have a mini frig for medications. The morning breakfast buffet was excellent and the very nice lady who kept it clean and replenished the food was great! So sorry I did not get her name. Our room faced the hwy. but there was no noise during the night. I was amazed, so I assure you any room will be fine at this location.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the highway were quiet and no noise from the road.

Working out of town really stinks but the hotel doesnt. Rooms are clean with very ccomfortable beds a huge flat screen tv and around 150 chaannels make me feel right at home. I sleep with a lot of pillows at home which means I bring my own pillows with me while most places givve you two flat mishapen often rather smelly pillows this place starts you off with four pillows and two extras in the closet. That to me is commfort. Im no genius but I did stay at a holiday inn express last night. LOL

We recently hosted a family reunion at this hotel and there were absolutely no complaints. The rooms were clean and comfortable and had flat-screen TVs as well as mini-fridges. There is a path that leads to the riverfront restaurant where we had our celebration. The location is on the Dead River which connects Lake Eustis to Lake Harris. There are plenty of shopping and dining options in area, and it's only five minutes from downtown Tavares. Folks in our group aged from age four to ninety and everyone was happy!
