We have been going to the Lakeside for years to celebrate my wife's Birthday, and in the past, enjoyed our stay. We always request the Coolidge room. The reason was it had two separate bedrooms connected by a shared bathroom. This was perfect for our daughters to be able to share one room and we had the other. The day...

This was our first stay at the Lakeside Inn. We had heard that Mt Dora is a wonderful place to visit and the Lakeside Inn was very nice. We were not disappointed. Our room was clean and looked like it had been recently painted. We had a king bed and the room was still spacious enough for us. The bathroom...

We've stayed here before and visited the Lakeside Inn as part of a recent tour. During our stays here, we've enjoyed the close proximity to the downtown area. The wings offer more quiet a stay but the main Inn is a well preserved resemblance of its 19th century charm. You've got to check out the dining areas, bar, lobby, and...

I had been to Mt Dora and loved the quaintness of the town so I decided to go again, I remembered the Lakeside Inn from the outside it looked like a beautiful hotel so I decided to stay here this time. Big mistake, upon arrival I was greeted by a very nice lady who advised me that we were not...

We have stayed at the Lakeside Inn every year for the last 15 years. It's in a great location for walking around Mt. Dora and is on Lake Dora. However on our most recent trip we were not treated very well. We made our reservation on-line on their site and booked our room with a pet fee included. After we...

I stopped by this hotel to check it out because I had heard of its historic charm. I have been in the hospitality business for years and am always excited to check out other hotels and service styles. THIS HAS TO BE THE WORST RUN HOTEL/RESTAURANT I HAVE EVER SEEN! First, I went to the front desk only to NOT...

We try to take a couple of long weekend trips to Mt Dora each year and this was the second time that we have stayed at the Lakeside Inn. As most have said in prior posts, it is charming and old. The rooms are spartan by todays standards but they are clean if not well worn. They are currently renovating...

We had an excellent lunch in the Tavern, Floyd the waiter was very nice and funny. The food was excellent and well presented. My fish sandwich was the best I've had in a long time, my friend had the monte cristo and loved it. I noticed as we ate a thick layer of dust and dirt with spiderwebs all over...

This hotel is like stepping back in time to a more relaxing era before digital devices. Very peaceful, traditional lakeside setting. The staff is friendly and accommodating. The restaurants can be a little spotty but are very reasonable and inviting.

We stayed at the Lakeside Inn this August and found the hotel absolutely charming. Of course it is old and you have to expect some inconveniences with that. Our room had a view of the pool and we were very pleased with that. The a/c kept our room faily cool, not uncomfortable. I do think that a ceiling fan would...
