Great two night stay in Tavares, Florida. Staff were friendly & very accommodating. Booked a standard king room which was clean & comfortable. A light breakfast was included each morning @ Buster Tubb's. Close to the lake and several great restaurants & bars.

Located at one of Florida's only inland seaplane basins, where pilots like to stop in, enjoy the entertainment, and often spend the night before the next day's adventures. Jet skis are available for More rental, as well as boat rentals. There is a steam engine (Orange Blossom Cannonball) that runs from Tavares to the historic village of Mt. Dora and beyond with themed trips. Live entertainment is common on the weekends on the waterfront at Puddle Jumpers (restaurant and bar) and Al's Sandbar (bar with limited menu). The hotel itself has The Tiki West Raw Bar and Grille, as well as Lago Dora Italian Restaurant, and Brand Charles Studio and Salon on premises. Classic Boat Racing, Antique Car Shows, Sailing Regattas, and Jet Ski Tournaments are common events on Lake Dora in Tavares, as well as the famous Arts and Antiques Festivals in Mt. Dora. The Downtown Tavares area is an Entertainment District, where patrons are allowed to stroll (with the adult beverages of their choice) to visit the many shops, museums, and restaurants and bars. The Hotel is located only two blocks from the Lake County Courthouse in Tavares, Florida. Less

Yes it's free, but does not work very well. Signal comes in and out. We ended up using data on our phones most of the time.
