I have stayed here on many occasions, mainly because we love to take our boat on the lake as a short weekend 'getaway'. The best thing about this resort is the ability to dock your boat near your boatel. I have to agree with one or two other reviewers who mention that this resort is run by the state and... More

We stayed at the resort just last week. It was a little strange driving through a college campus to get to the resort but there is another highway exit you can take. We stayed in the main hotel and it was comfortable although the rooms need updated. The water pressure in the shower was terrible! Very beautiful and clean pool.... More

We recently spent 4 nights at the Rend Lake Resort. What an overwhelming disappointment. We Stayed in a Botel. The room was dirty with spiders and spider webs all over the cealings. The room was not vaccummed daily and we had to ask for new towels and coffee cubs each day. The T.V. only had 2 stations with Direct T.V.... More

We stayed in the hotel, which was pretty much like any other hotel room. It was clean, the linens and towels were replaced daily and the furniture was nondescript but functional. I suspect the hotel has been updated before some of the other buildings. We were there for a conference, so the food was served buffet style in the conference... More

My family reserved a room for three days at the Rend Lake resort convention center. The grounds are beautiful and the room was nice for what we paid for it. It was clean and comfortable although the balcony was in need of updating . Our problem was with the food at the Windows Restaurant. There are really no words to... More

The concept here is great, but the property is in dire need of major cleaning/maintenance and renovation of cabins and boatels. If you must stay here, I recommend the hotel over the cabins or boatel, as it seems more recently renovated and not as neglected. There are no kitchens in any room type, so if you were planning on fixing... More

I just came back from our cousins reunion at Rend Lake. We had a room at the flagship. Imagine pulling your cover back at 11:30 pm and finding the most disgusting stain you have ever seen. Furniture old and smelly, had a great deck, nothing to sit on, and don't ask for a menu at the restaurant when the buffet... More

We rented a room at the Flagship. Had to have maint come and change batteries in our door lock which left us standing outside with all our luggage, but he responded quick. There was a long metal piece of something laying in front of the fireplace that was very sharp, I gave it to the Maint guy before he left.... More
