Reviewed 7 July 2006

Stayed Jun 30 (2 nights) read reviews on Tripadvisor before booking. I found the Inn to be small but clean, bed comfortable, and good location to historic downtown Mt. Dora. Breakfast is promptly served at 8:30 a.m. There's not much of a selection - you eat what they decide to cook that morning (a couple small baked hot dishes, coffee, tea - nothing fresh like fruit or bagels). The negative's we felt - There are no machines on site for water, ice, soda's etc. We were told to drink the tap water - it was good enough. If you wanted ice - you had to ask the owners for some from their freezer. And there are no TV's or Radio's in room. I would check out one of the other B&B's next visit - I feel you should get more amenities for the money.

I think Mt. Dora Historic Inn is the quintessential b&b experience. The owners are very helpful and could suggest a lot of differernt things to do in and around the city. I also planned on doing short road trips away from Mount Dora, and the owners were really helpful in providing alternate routes to the big expressways. The breakfast was delicious--I don't understand why the fact that it's all baked should affect my view of it. It was a pleasure to sit with the other people staying at the inn and chat. The room was quiet and beautifully decorated. It was a really, really nice stay.

We stayed at the Inn for a long weekend and we found it to be a wonderful B&B. Our room was spotless with beautiful fresh linens each day. It was quiet and private. The hosts were friendly and helpful without being intrusive. Breakfast was incredible. Everything was fresh baked and so many choices! Definitely something for everyone. The Inn was full and we met some delightful people. The location is perfect. I don't understand the previous review. The Inn is small so there is a small dining area but totally adequate and comfortable. There are no tv's which is great by me - that's what getting away is all about. We would definitely stay there again.

Smell of mold in the room, cluttered, dusty. The entire breakfast was baked, like the innkeeper just wanted to get the food done without putting too much effort into it. When serving the food, the stench of a recently smoked cigarrette could be sensed coming from the innkeeper's breath and hands. Not very professional. Perhaps because they are selling the joint. I would not recommend this inn or stay there again if the same people are running it. The only good thing about this inn is its location: right next to all the shops. Not worth what we paid for though. I don't think it deserves a "Terrible" rating because there were no roaches or bugs in the room, and the bed was comfortable.
