This year was my third visit to the Lakeside Inn. As I pulled into the drive and saw the familiar line of rocking chairs on the long veranda - it felt like I'd come home. The staff was welcoming and helpful; many remembered me from previous visits. Except for breakfast on the veranda - I took most of my meals... More

This was our 2nd stay at the Lakeside Inn, again for an anniversary celebration. We did a weekend get-away special which was a very good value. Our room did not have a view, but it was clean and comfortable and perfectly adequate for the time that we spent in there. The best part of the Lakeside is sitting on the... More

This was our first trip to Mount Dora for a 2 night Valentine's Weekend stay. We chose the Lakeside Inn because we have had great luck in the past with Historic Hotels and the location on the Lake and in the heart of Mount Dora was just what we were looking for. We booked an "Inn Suite" online that featured... More

Perhaps the worst dining experience ever. Went there for a special occasion and was extremely disappointed. Poor service, very unapologetic management. Food was average at best. The waiter had no business being in that field. The only positive was that we were with family. Never go back there again!

If you are a frequent visitor to Mt. Dora you have to stay or eat at this place at least once. It is a piece of history, and as such, it has its good and bad. The breakfast and the front desk were good. It is an old hotel so the rooms are old and outdated and a little worn... More

We stayed 2 nights at the Lakeside Inn. Our first room was old, smelled moldy, was dirty, the bed was impossible to sleep in. Our second room smelled better, but was in the same condition. The hotel staff was very rude. The food was good and the restaurant service good. I would recommend it for dinner or an iced tea... More

Enter Mt Dora and encounter the beautiful Lakeside Inn on the shores of Lake Dora and you have stepped back "Somewhere In Time". This hotel's late 1800's decor is magnificent in its statement of a Florida gone but not for this spot. So close to the Magic Kingdom and yet so far, it is Magic. The large roomy Lobby is... More

We stayed here during the Renninger's Antique Extravaganza. The hotel's grounds are kept up very nicely, but just wait until you go inside the rooms! Paint was peeling off the walls. The flat screen television was super tiny. It was a joke. The wi-fi internet inside the rooms barely worked. It was so difficult to get online inside our room.... More

A 250.00 mistake for one night. If we told them we weren't staying after we saw our room we would have lost our deposit. Yes 225.99- so we stayed. Old.

Our room seemed to have been recently renovated. It was pleasantly clean, fresh, and bright. We had a lovely view of the lake and were within a short walking distance from everything. The historic atmosphere was wonderful and the wood burning fireplace in the bar provided cozy warmth on an unusually cold Florida winter day. We enjoyed the seaplane flight... More
