My wife and I went down for a quiet "getaway" and found exactly what we were looking for. Food was good, the room was right on the water with a great view of the lake and it appeared that the room had been recently updated. Service was good when checking-in and over at the restaurant. The resort offered the perfect... More

Not bad at all! Clean rooms. Very friendly staff. Not a lot of extras but price is good. We had a marine corps ball there nd thr staff was helpful. They should habe more food option to buy though. Not just candy.

The Rend Lake resort is a really pretty location, right on the water with a marina and wonderful forest-like tree setting. The bad news is the resort has been in need of major renovations for some time now. This was my third stay here for a working conference and the resort is in desperate need of major renovations. The rooms... More

Ok I gave it the benefit of the doubt. I'm not haughty or mean however I do have expectations. As soon as we checked in and went into the room - I was setting my baggage down when the door opened and a maid entered the room with no notice! Thank goodness I was decent! Lol. I splurged and got... More

My husband's family has their annual reunion in the Rend Lake area. We have always stayed in the duplex cabins at Rend Lake Resort; so we can have more time together with siblings in the large living room. Siblings also stay in the adjacent air conditioned cabins or the hotel. It was a pleasant surprise this year that the cabins... More

I stayed two nights in one of the hotel's spa rooms. Based on the Trip Advisor reviews, I expected the experience to be worse than it actually was. They now have large screen TVs in the rooms (or at least in my wing of the hotel) but, although they show 20 channels available in their room guide, I got only... More

Wonderful experience. Beautiful room, excellent service and fine dining at it's best. Many enjoyable things to do, boating, fishing, hiking, golf or just relaxing in a peaceful environment. One of the best family vacations we have had.

We are so glad we decided to stay at Rend Lake Resort, the place was just beautiful, the grounds were well kept, our room was nice and clean and the staff was excellent, we have a son in a wheelchair and they went out of their way to make sure we were comfortable and had everything we/he needed.

We just got back from 3 days of staying at this resort. What can I say but it was wonderful. We stayed at one of the botels and it was right along the lake. Our balcony had a fantastic view. On our last day there, I sat out on the balcony and didn't want to leave the view. The staff... More
