The room was very quaint and very clean. It had a very tropical feel to it. We had a very enjoyable stay here. Kitchen facilities were great for having a few meals in our room. It was in a location with easy access to various areas on the island. It was great to have laundry facilities available so we could...

We were very happy at the M.I. Lakeside Inn. It's just a few blocks off the main road, but you don't see or hear much of the outside world from the lake. The facilities are very nice and well maintained; our room was spacious and very clean. The lakeside itself is nice to sit by and enjoy. Greenery and foliage...

Thank you for the kind review. We think one of the pluses of Lakeside Inn is its location--close to everything but far enough away to be nice and relaxing! Our team works very hard to make sure everything is clean and maintained. Thank you for noticing! Thank you again, Lynn Dahl and the Team at Lakeside Inn

Could only spend one night here on our way north. Very friendly staff and quite nice accommodations. Close to some good restaurants. Would come back again and recommend the Lakeside Inn, Marco Island.

We booked our place through TAN and were very surprised what a nice little place this was. We loved the quiet and laid back manner of this inn. Everyone was so nice that worked here.

We discovered the Marco Island Lakeside Inn on Tripadvisor when we were looking for somewhere to stay for a pre-cruise stay. We stayed for four nights and it's the perfect place to relax and take in the sights around Marco Island. Located on a pretty lake with an abundance of wildlife (iguanas, birds and turtles).

Handy location for the town and beaches. No restaurant facilities which we knew when we booked, but local breakfast cafe they suggest was very expensive - $40 for 2 omelettes, 1 full breakfast, 2 coffees and 1 OJ. Nice spacious room, modern in decoration. Friendly staff. Nice pool, but didn't get time to use it.

I suggest that management ask the occupants, when booking, how old they are. It was not fun, bringing the luggage up to second floor. The steps are concrete. One could fall very easily. Thanks for posting.

Thank you for your input. We appreciate your sharing your experience. Since we have only 19 rooms, we are too small to offer curb service as such. However, if you ask, our maintenance man will be glad to help assist you in the future. Kind Regards, Marcia

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Marco Island Lakeside Inn sits two miles from Marco Island beaches and boasts a sparkling-heated pool and affordable rates year round. Come and enjoy the only Lakeside getaway on Marco Island. A Cozy Island Getaway. Our 19-suite Marco Island Inn offers two two-bedroom suites, 10 one-bedroom suites and seven studio suites. Our spacious and comfortable suites have been recently remodeled and decorated with a cottage chic decor reminiscent of Old Florida and Key West. Each hideaway is thoughtfully appointed with a fresh, clean white and beige pallet and select floral accents. Wicker cottage-style furniture tastefully completes the setting for an island atmosphere. Imagine French doors, private decks, lake views, tropical breezes and blue skies....You are at Marco Island Lakeside Inn. Lakeview Suites offer a screened-in balcony overlooking the Marco Lake, which is designated a natural habitat for local birds, ducks and turtles to name a few. It is the perfect place to sit and enjoy a cocktail before dinner while taking in the serene atmosphere. Our beautifully landscaped inn is located off the beaten track but close to everything. It is a serene sanctuary and a great retreat from the atmosphere of the large resorts and high rises. You will feel right at home the moment you enter. Our friendly staff is quite informative about the local area and offers a personalized experience of Marco Island. If you are looking to escape your fast paced life and slow down for a while, you will want to stay here. ... more   less
