“prepare to pay and pay”
Reviewed 21 July 2014

Just to get into Lakeside the car fee for one day is $8.25 plus $19.75 per adult. We had to wait in the inns parking lot until someone left so that we could get a parking space. We could park at a remote lot and take a shuttle to the inn. The room that we had reserved was not available as the previous occupant became ill and had to stay another day. We were offered another room that was entirely unacceptable. So we were finally given a room in the really old section of the inn on the third floor. The shower was hard to adjust the temperature and there was not enough towel racks in the bathroom. The beds were nice and comfortable and we had a large screen tv to use. A continental breakfast was available but we chose to cross the street to a full service restaurant. We have stayed at this inn before but in the much nicer newer section. Room rate was $115. plus tax.

Room Tip: Plan in advance and be prepared to PAY! Very quiet as the area shuts down around 10.
