“Amazing Inn on the Lake”
Reviewed 2 December 2013

My wife and I stayed at this hotel, which is in a quiet neighborhood right on a small lake (or a large pond). The woman at the desk was very friendly and check-in was quick. The grounds were well kept and the hotel itself was in great condition. The lights were on and the tvs on as we entered our room to make us feel at home. The room is a suite, like a condo, with a living room, full kitchen with dishes, bathroom and bedroom. The bed was very soft and comfortable with a screened-in patio that overlooked the lake. We could see anhingas, ducks, herons and an alligator. We loved our visit and would definitely stay again!

Room Tip: The rooms in the main building (lake view) overlook the lake, with nice views on the second floor...

Hi Matthew,
Thank you for such a glowing review! It really means a lot to us. We want you to feel at home the minute you arrive- from our friendly front desk staff to the lights and TV being on in the room. We want you to feel as welcome as you are! It sounds like you really enjoyed the laid back, quiet and natural environment we have tried to create- with a little help from nature of course!

Thanks for taking the time!
Marcia

First time visiting Marco island and the Lakeside Inn was fabulous. Small property which was nice. We had the poolside studio which was perfect for the two of us on our romantic getaway. The room was cute, clean, and the kitchen was well stocked. TV worked wonderfully and there was a DVD player which we didn't use. Bathroom was clean and had plenty of towels. Property was kept up nicely - the little beach area with the tiki hut was wonderful. We enjoyed watching the iguana and turtles. The Inn is in a great location - close to everything. The staff was welcoming and helpful. We enjoyed our stay and would definitely return on a future visit. Thank you!

Green Features: Very green! Had recycle bins under the sink; changed sheets every third day and only refreshed towels left in the basket. Thank you!

Dear Shell-Bell,

Thanks for taking the time to let us and all TripAdvisor's guests know about your visit at out inn. I think it is particularly helpful when you go into detail about the various things you really enjoyed about the hotel and it helps future guests get a "feel" for the place. I'm glad you found our staff to be friendly and welcoming- we really DO want you to have a great time here!
Warm wishes,

We were very pleased about how easy it was to get around a very pretty room. The bathroom was one of the best for a wheelchair that we have ever stayed in. The bed was a little high which seems to be the problem in many places with wheelchair access. It was great to have such a nice kitchen that the staff kept ultra clean. We would definitly stay again.

Our second floor one bedroom condo unit was very clean. A nice screened in back porch off of the bedroom overlooks Marco Lake. We would sit and have our coffee and watch the two aligators swim. The bedding was very clean and it made us feel like we were at home. The kitchen was well stocked with all the tools. The pool area has a gas grill which we used to cook T-bone steaks and lobster tails that were on sale that week at Publix. The swimming pool is heated and crystal clear. We used it every evening to relax. Behind the pool next to the beach is a tiki hut with a table and ice machine for the guests. Don't forget your Margaritaville frozen drink maker! We stayed during the first week of November 2013. The weather was beautiful in the 80s during the day. This is a slow season before all the snowbirds arrive but it is the best time to come. We brought our bicycles with us from NJ and rode all over the island. We ended up at the firehouse on Sunday morning where they were having a pancake breakfast. For a guided fishing trip of the backcountry go to the tiki hut at the marina where they will get you a four hour small party boat with all the poles and bait for $68. Take a short drive on a Saturday to Goodland (about 10 miles). Five or Six bars all within walking distance and one giant outdoor bar with stage. I think it is only open on Saturday. This place looks like a good time. If you are a Moose member you can walk around the block from Lakeside Inn to the Moose lodge that was jumping every night. Lakeside Inn is a nice place.

Hi William,
Boy, it sounds like you really enjoyed everything about Marco Island! I am glad you took advantage of the relaxing porch and the view of the lake. Bedding is always very important so it's nice to know you found it comfy and the whole suite to be very clean. The nicest thing is you felt at home- that's how we like our guests to feel- like they are visiting our own home!

Thanks for writing, reviewing us and for all the great details about your escape to Marco Island!
Warm wishes,
Marcia

We found the Marco Island in to be very, very clean. Handy having a fully stocked kitchen. The staff was accomodating & friendly. It was quiet in the evenings. Although we didn't use their pool, it looked crystal clear. The ONLY drawback to this Inn is that you will need a car to get to the Gulf Beach and the touristy areas. We found nice restaurants and bars within walking distance.

Room Tip: It is definitely worth it to have a second floor suite so you can look out over the pond

There's nothing the the word "great Inn" to make my day- especially when followed by "very, very clean"! I am happy that you enjoyed your stay with us and that our staff was both friendly and accommodating. We would love to see you again! Thanks for taking the extra time to write!

Our favorite reviews are those that say you'll recommend us to friends and family and you'd come back again! Thank you for saying both! We pride ourselves on being spotlessly clean and as comfortable and homey as possible. But our people are our greatest asset. We try to go out of our way to be as helpful as possible.
