DO NOT USE THIS INN!!!!!!!!!!! WE GET THERE AND IT LOOKS NICE FROM THE OUTSIDE AND EVEN THE MAIN LOBBY IS OKAY, BUT THEN YOU GET TO THE ROOMS!!! DIRTY, DIRTY, DIRTY!!! WE STAYED IN THE TERRACE SECTION. OKAY ON THE WAY IN TO THE ROOM IT LOOKS LIKE IT NEVER I MEAN NEVER HAS BEEN CLEANED. THEN WE GET INTO THE ROOM IT LOOKS OKAY FROM THE BEGINNING, BUT THEN YOU GO IN THERE WINDOW AC, WHICH OKAY IS NOT BAD, BUT THEY ARE TINY AND DO NOT GET THE ROOM VERY COLD, THEN ON TOP OF THAT IT WAS SUPPOSE TO BE 2 BEDS AND IN THE 2ND ROOM WAS ANOTHER WELL ACCTUALLY IT IS 2 BED AND A VERY NASTY GROSS (IT HAD BLOOD STAINS AND DEAD BUGS) PULL OUT COUCH, ON TOP OF THAT THE FRIGE ARE THE VERY SMALL ONES AND THEY DONT GET COLD ENOUGH, THERE WE EXTRA BLANKETS IN THE CLOSETS, THAT WAS SO DUSTY AND HAD DEAD BUGS IN IT. THEY DONT HAVE EXTRA OF ANYTHING AT ALL, PILLOWS AND SO FOURTH. THE CHARGED ME 370 FOR 2 NIGHTS FOR THIS DUMP AND ON TOP OF THAT THEY GAVE US COUPONS TO USE AT THE INN, WHICH WAS GREAT, BUT THEY ENDED UP CHARGING US AT THE END FOR THOSE SO CALLED COUPONS, ALSO WE WENT TO GET BACK INTO OUR ROOM AND THE LOCK CAVED IN AND NOW WE CANT EVEN USE THAT DOOR, ALSO THE PHONE BOOKS THEY RIPPED OUT THE RESTURANT PAGES OUT SO THAT THEY THINK WITH MODERN TECHNOLOGY YOU WONT BE ABLE TO FIND ANOTHER ONE!! THE ONLY PLUS IS THE VIEW IS THE POOL WAS A GOOD SIZE, ALSO IT IS WITHIN WALKING DISTANCE TO DOWNTOWN MOUNT DORA. I FORGOT TO ADD THAT I FOUND A RAZOR HEAD, AND A BROKEN PIECE OF GLASS UNDER NEATH THE BED WHEN I WAS LOOKING FOR MY KIDS SHOES, ON TOP OF THAT I WOULD AND WILL NEVER USE THIS PLACE OR EVEN RECCOMNED THIS PLACE TO ANYONE. THIS PLACE WAS JUST TOTALLY RUNNED DOWNED NOT TAKEN CARE OF, OBVIOUSLY THE LARGE AMOUNT OF MONEY THAT THEY CHARGE PER ROOM FOR THIS PLACE IS NOT GOING BACK INTO THE INN........ ALSO THE PICTURES THEY SHOW IN THE LOBBY AND ONLINE ARE NOT RECENT SO DONT BE FOOLED, THE BEACH SIDE SHOWN ON THE WEB IS NOW OVER GROWN YOU CANT EVEN GET TO THE BEACH FROM THE WEEDS, WHICH WE SEEN 2 GATORS SO NOT SURE IF YOU WANTED TO BUT JUST TO KEEP IT UPDATED.

Unique Quality: GOOD POOL SIZE, NICE VIEW OF LAKE AND CLOSE TO DOWNTOWN

in my opinion the lakeside inn is the best place to stay in mount dora. this historic inn was built in 1883 and was named the alexander house. in 1893 the alexander house was sold and the name was changed to lake house. in 1903 the name was changed again to the lakeside inn. a number of famous people have stayed there including thomas edison, henry ford, president calvin cooledge, and president dwight eisenhower. the lakeside inn offers a restaurant, bar, pool, and a beautiful view of lake dora. a nice place to stay to get a feel of old florida. the lakeside inn is listed on the national register of historic places.

Directions: downtown mount dora lakeside.
