So leary of staying somewhere on the river but after reading reviews settled on Shady Lane. Stayed in cabin 1. Furnishings are not the newest but very very clean. No stains, no dirt, no dust, no smell. Very nice and great price. Grounds are very tidy and nice also.

We have previously stayed in one of the extra large (two story) cabins with family, which I highly recommend. This time around my husband and I ended up getting one of the hotel rooms, which was perfectly adequate for our needs. We stayed in room 101, the first room to the right when you walk in the door. The room... More

We intend for all of our equipment to work, so please report any problems to the office. Subsequent guests reported the lack of hot water in M101, and it has been fixed. Thank you for staying with us at Shady Lane Cabins & Motel. Your business is greatly appreciated, and we hope to see you again in the future. More

Found Eminence and decided to stop at Shady Lane on a cross country trip not knowing the area at all. I was pleasantly surprised at the amazing natural beauty of the area and loved the little town. Quaint, friendly and authentic and just what I was looking for. Got in late and the owner was very friendly and helpful and... More

I brought a fairly large group to the Shady Lane Motel & Cabins after just under two years of planning for the trip, so it was important that things go well. Jim & Jeanie Anderson, the owners, went way above and beyond the call of duty to ensure everything was to our satisfaction. Information was supplied readily, no issues overlooked,... More

We've been coming to Eminence for about twelve years have stayed at Shady Lane the last ten. At first we went for the economical rooms, but the excellent service and clean rooms kept us coming back. The motel rooms are comfortable. If staying for four or five days, we get a cabin, which is huge. We've also stayed there in... More

My husband and I were first attracted to Shady Land Cabins and Motel by the more than reasonable prices on season and off. We're simple people in search of a clean, quiet room for sleeping, accessible and dependable WIFI, quiet A/C in the summer and heat in the winter -- as well as knowledgeable and friendly helpful local staff...people who...

Eminence, MO is probably the prettiest area of Missouri..... besides beauty, and the warmth of this town, they make you feel like part of the community! I have stayed at Shady Lane Motel often.. more than 5 visits. I was always given a warm, friendly welcome by staff and owner. I have stayed in the motel and one of the... More

There is just something special about the Eminence area. I have visited several times with photo friends to photograph the beautiful springs in the area. Every time we have stayed at Shady Lane Cabins and Motel. I have stayed in the cabins and the double room in the motel. Both are very clean and roomy and very reasonable in price.... More

Having stayed at Shady lane for many years, it is our first choice when coming to Eminence. The staff is more than helpful and the location is convenient. On those few instances when something breaks, it is repaired/replaced instantly. Jim the proprietor makes sure to go out of his way to make certain your stay is comfortable. I've stayed in... More

Cleanliness is the only thing this place has going for it ... That and there are very few choices in the area. The bed was saggy, the wi-if didn't work and some of the rooms don't even have a window ... Like a cruise ship cabin only without the curtain over the fake window. Staff wasn't that welcoming and the... More

We apologize for your bad experience at Shady Lane Cabins. Our single motel rooms have one full-size, and at 140 square feet, they are small. We oftentimes pay 3 times our rates to stay in middle-of-the-road motel chains as we travel about the Midwest. Our single room rates are priced accordingly, and are the lowest motel rates in town. We... More
