I don't think that this hotel is for everyone. it has a bolted lock door that has to be used with a key. there is not a main structure around it all. there is just a small room for getting towels. the pool was very dirty and had tons of bugs in it. its foundation cracked. Very obvious signs of... More

arrived July 2 without a reservation (got messed up at another resort), were welcomed and made to feel wanted! although motel looks unimpressive on front outside, it was actually very clean and modern inside, with a rear balcony overlooking the grounds, beautiful sunset. Nice pool, playground. Best of all was the friendly, helpful attitude of the owners/attendants. Have never been... More

fled another horrible hotel to come here and were rewarded with an owner that was beyond helpful. rooms that were bare, but clean and quiet, and an energy that was amazing. Very clean pool, very friendly owners, extremely affordable and great location~

The bedding was clean and relatively new. Room was big and had a lot of floor space. Pool was clean and surprisingly empty for a holiday weekend. Air condition was on in the room when we arrived. The balcony over looks the pool. Large sliding doors with locks. The staff was very helpful and courteous. I enjoyed our stay at... More

If you are thinking of staying here...reconsider! First off we had not planned on staying in Bull Shoals but after traveling there via the extremely curvy road in the daylight decided not to try them at night. The room looked like no one had entered it in who knows how long dead moths all over in the bathroom and in... More

I picked this place because the reviews had a pool, great service, and "you could walk to the lake". First off, I must say the people that run this place are amazing, super nice, and friendly. But I didn't go on vacation to meet them. The hotel is straight out of the 1950s and the kitchen I paid extra for... More

Hi Janexo, Room that you stayed in was a "500 sq ft room" which we dont beleive is considered a small room. You paid $85 for the room & we will be happy to know who rents a house for $85 a night and has all the facilities that we have. Our kitchenette pics are uploaded on the website. Nothing... More

Stayed with our family of six. The Marina was right behind the hotel! The property is is little older, like all of bull shoals but the rooms are redone and are clean and comfortable. Our family was comfortable and it was a great place to stay!

First off, this is not a five star hotel; it's a nice lodge type, outdoor entry motel. But, if you are on vacation, you are probably rarely there anyway. We got a room during the week right after fourth fo July... I guess a "suite" as it was two connecting rooms with a kitchenette in between. Nothing fancy--wall a/c, paneling... More

Cabins are clean, maintenace is very good, lake access is only a very short walk (100 yards) in a nice private cove. Everything you need is provided. If you are treveling with more than 4 people I recommend their two alregr Cabins! Last, your pets are welcome!
