Great restaurant and bar on site; walking distance to downtown; right on the lake. Other than the few palm trees, spanish moss and warning signs about alligators the hotel and town reminded me of some of the towns on the St. Croix and Mississippi river in WI and MN!

Great setting perfect for seaplane beaching

The property is in the PERFECT location to go to the Market. BUT the property and buildings are in poor condition. I think a good pressure washing would remove much of the spider webs, mold, and dirt and the windows are absolutely filthy. To the point u can barely see out of them. Granted, these are large buildings but general upkeep is part of owning a hotel, no matter how large.

All good

Great place to stay - a short walk to everything Mount Dora has to offer!

The staff was very friendly and super accommodating for our group. My group of 16 ladies loved everything about Lakeside Inn. We are definitely going back to stay for our group weekend trips.

Very charming hotel built in the 1800’s with all the modern amenities in your room. Would definitely stay again on a future trip.

I will definitely stay here again. Very close to shopping, great restaurants and craft breweries. Although, since Covid, the staff is limited like so many places around the country, so eating here was not a great experience. A very long wait for food and beverages. The room was cozy, the bed very comfortable, the view of the lake was awesome, and the staff in our building was very friendly and helpful. Loved the rocking chairs on the massive porch for watching the lake. We took an awesome tour of the lake and canals with Premier Boat Tours. The 2 hour Dora Canal Eco tour. Nate was very knowledgeable and entertaining. We saw many alligators, different species of birds and bald eagles.

Beautiful view over Lake Dora. Checkin staff very helpful and friendly. Room neat and clean. Earliest breakfast was 8am, took hour and a half, no late checkout available (checkout is 11am), so had to check out earlier than desired in order to to do any exploring.

Beautiful, historic hotel. Great view and location to shops and restaurants.

Historic older property, clean & nice, but don’t expect big rooms with modern amenities for a basic room charge.

Propert is beautiful. Great location. Staff kind ands courteous. Room smelled moldy. Rooms not sound proof(at least in Terrace building). Folks loud at least until midnight. Loud guests are not the fault of the property. I would stay again but would prefer a different room in a different building.

Old beautiful buildings! Great landscaping! Nice amenities

Lovely stay at Lakeside Inn! Dinner was fantastic. Opportunities to dine outside on the porch overlooking the lake or inside listening to the piano!
