Stayed three nights in a quaint, inexpensive, very clean room #106, with amenities such as a fridge, microwave, coffee service, and some toiletries. It was quiet for relaxation by the lake. The staff was helpful and friendly. Loved the outlet strip right on the bed post for easier connectivity of multiple devices. Breakfast is available for purchase. Had a croissant...

Quaint old Florida Inn. Lake side rooms with super views. Cafe opens for breakfast for guest, with standard fare. Pleasant relaxing stay during family gathering for funnel service. We didn't know what to expect but had relaxing stay during stressful time.

We visited from Texas. This hotel is worth every penny. Our room was spotless, the beds were perfectly comfortable, the customer service was incredible, and the sunset was spectacular over the lake. Perfect nights sleep makes for a perfect weekend vacation. Can't wait to visit here again the next time we are in the area.

In our second stay at the Lakeside, it didn't disappoint. The price is certainly right, and the lake view is a nice change from the tourist-stopover congestion at the exit from Florida's Turnpike. The rooms are small and fairly bare, and you'll sleep to the drone and hard-to-adjust temperature of a wall-unit AC. We could hear a bit of conversation...

My sister, a friend and I stayed here so that we could go to Forever Florida for our zipline adventure. As the name indicates, this motel is on the shore of a lake, Alligator Lake to be exact. It is an older establishment, but very clean and comfortable!!! The sheets and towels were sparkling white. We had a 2 bedroom...

Please note, the cafe isn't open. I'm not sure when it will reopen. The grounds and room was nice and comfortable. It was worth the price. The scenery of the lake was great. I enjoyed decompressing on the lake side dock while the sun set. No complaints what so ever.

We arrived late and were greeted warmly Expected smelly fish camp. Received very clean,quiet and affordable room for my family. Will make this place a yearly stop from now on. The lakeside setting really gives you that old Florida feel. The amenities were equal to any big chain
