Verified Reviews of Lakeside Inn

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Be part of Mt Dora history as a Lakeside Inn guest."
Overall Score5.0/ 5
My first ever and very enjoyable visit to historic Mt Dora, FL was amplified by a weekend stay at Lakeside Inn. The impeccable attention to historic detail ( like clear crystal door knobs and original pine flooring on the first level) is appreciated. The subtle modern upgrades ( like digitized room cooling) did not distract from the yesteryear atmosphere. Staff was congenial and attentive. Highly recommended!

"Historic Ambiance"
Overall Score3.0/ 5
Love location, but pricy for not including breakfast at least. Carpet needed replacing. I paid for a king bed, but got two queens. Staff were pleasant.

"Historic is right."
Overall Score4.0/ 5
Loved our stay, but will be a little wiser next time. We had a person in a scooter and a service dog and between the two of them, I was worn out having to carry everything up the steps by myself. I was not prepared for No Elevators. I was not aware that there was going to be a scooter involved or I would've asked if there were any accessible rooms. I will next time.
