Nice Historical Hotel

Posted May 21, 2015
Pros: History, Location and Staff
Cons: Could use some sprucing up and exterior cleaning
Location: Location is the best and you can walk to the lake or downtown in seconds
Hotel and property are very cool. Lots of history. Hotel needs a bit of TLC in some areas but overall is a nice change from your typical hotel chains. Rooms are small, but thats the way they were back in the late 1800's. Will stay there again when visiting Mount Dora area.

Cute OLD hotel with small rooms

Posted Apr 7, 2015
Pros: Control of the A/C unit and charming. In the heart of all the shopping and restaurants. Everything is pretty much walking distance.
Cons: Plumbing, beds, WiFi, TVs
Location: Mount Dora is a very charming town. There are shops and restaurants all well within walking distance. They have boat tours that are affordable.
Hubby and I stayed here last minute. It's a charming old hotel which means old fixtures, beds, plumbing, etc. The first room we entered was a small room with a small bath and a hard King sized mattress with no view. My husband was not happy. The staff was accommodating and moved us to a larger room with a view for no upcharge. The king sized bed was still hard, the couch and chair were old, TV were old. While it was a cute room, you knew you were in an old hotel. When taking a shower in the morning, try to avoid doing so when everyone in the hotel is taking a shower. I had either scalding hot water or cold. Not very happy. Expedia advertises that there is free WiFi here. They do not explain that you can only receive WiFi from the lobby or the front porch. Plus side was that we could control the AC unit and make it as cold as we wanted and its a charming hotel and the hotel upgraded up to a larger room, but I don't think hubby will stay here again and I don't think my back can take that mattress again.

Charming .. But needs updating.

Posted Mar 26, 2015 on Hotels
The neighborhood is outstanding! Quaint little town. Rooms were outdated. Needs some insulation so you don't hear everything going on in the next room. Bed was great. TV is out of the 80's (bought similar ones for my kids when they were 10), but does have cable. Employees were very helpful and kind. Must do steps even if you are on the first floor.

Friendly accomadating staff. Loved the history and style of the porch and the sunset view at night. Great poolside view of the lake also. Quiet location for spring break if this is what you seek. Not that far from the Atlantic either.

Historic hotel on Lake Dora

Posted Mar 16, 2015
This hotel is very very cool. Beautiful grounds right on the Lake. Large pool. Two restaurants, loads of history and right in town so you're surrounded by restaurants and shops.
