Sadly to say, I have to agree with some of the reviews. I rarely write a negative review. The positives: The tubs in the rooms are clean and plenty of hot water. The grounds of the resort are very nice. The rooms in the main hotel are just okay. The rooms need to be updated. Arrived Saturday - the wallpaper... More

The 27 hole Rend Lake Golf Course is located in the heart of beautiful Southern Illinois and is conveniently located off interstate 57. While I live 45 minutes from the course, it is worth the drive and a treat to play there! The course is in great shape and green fees are very reasonable, even for a frugal person such... More

We stayed at the resort in one of the Boatels, which is directly on the water and supplied a fabulous view of the lake. The room was nice and even had a large garden whirlpool tub. The property has lots of boat slips and boat ramps for easy access to the lake. Also in the area is a golf course... More

Booked a room at the Flag Ship Boatel. Elevator wasn't working was in the high ninety with 100o/o. Humidity. My husband made 3 trips down five flights of stairs back to registration desk because the key card wouldn't work. Finally desk sent someone to demagnetise the door. Other guest were having the same problems with their key cards. After we... More

Nice view of the lake. Good quality rooms. Nice restaurant (a little expensive) with a good deck. Great boat docks. Nice trails. Good pool. Lots of wildlife. Recommend cabin or upstairs at the boatels so you don't hear people tromping overhead all night long.

This is a beautiful place in theory. The rooms are awful. Customer service is not good. This is the second and last time I stay here. We stayed in Flagship which is the "expensive" room. The ac didn't work was 82 in room outside was 104. Gross bed, stains. I will upload pix and let u decide.

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
