My two week stay at this hotel was an enjoyable one. From the beautiful lake just feet from my room, to the amazing staff that even made ya homemade chocolate chip cookies. I recommend this hotel to anyone whether it be for business or leisure. Wifi worked great and plenty of activities (horseshoes, volleyball, boat rentals) will keep ya busy... More

We stayed in a very nice motel on our visit to the Lake of the Ozarks last weekend. We both thought this was a great place, it was very clean and the owner is friendly and very helpful. It was a great room for the cost. It is an older motel, but still taken care of nicely. The ONLY problem... More

Thanks Joyce for giving our little place in heaven a review, we are glad you enjoyed your stay and thank-you for stating the problem with the shower. This was our first night to be open for the 2015 summer season, the only way that we know of a problem is if someone tells us. The water heater is now on... More

Everything about this motel made our time there restful and memorable. The friendly long-time owner greeted us warmly, and gave us tons of tips about nearby restaurants and things to see in the area. Location is excellent, right on Lake of the Ozarks, with beautiful sunsets and sunrises over the lake. Our room was clean and spacious, with free internet... More

The Water's Edge Motel is much more than a vintage lake side motel, it is an oasis where the pressures and worries of the day fade away. Meticulously maintained by friendly, caring owners, this little gem should be considered by anyone needing an escape for a weekend or a week.

My husband and I stayed during our daughter's wedding for three days. The location is excellent - right on the lake. The room was very nice and clean. The hotel is close to a wonderful family owned diner and food was excellent.

My wife and I both needed some private time in an area that was easily accessible, on the waters edge with a beautiful open view of the lake, easy travel to shopping and eating and not have to get in and out of the gravel roads that are the norm for water access cabins, clean, friendly hosts with Robin and...

I took 4 kids for the weekend, we never had to leave. The kids had so much fun! Beautiful view from the CLEAN spacious rooms. Quiet, calm part of the lake away from all the traffic and touristy stuff. It is like a hidden treasure. Very well maintained. Only thing we didn't like was the air conditioner was pretty loud.

We recently had a large family reunion in Gravois Mills and the motel owners worked closely with us to arrange lodging for many of our out-of-town relatives. We used their lakefront grounds to have an evening picnic supper, bonfire and sing-along. Our family members really enjoyed the beautiful setting and commented on the cleanliness of the entire facility. The owners... More

We've been staying here for years. The rooms are basic but very clean. Fridges,microwaves,coffee pots ,direct tv. Who needs super fancy when your time is spent out on the water anyway? Save some money on the very reasonable rates and do some shopping across at the outlet mall. Everything you need! The grounds are impeccable. All kinds of outdoor activities... More

We stay here every year when we are in the area visiting family. Great place for families: rooms are pretty basic and super clean. Most rooms have lovely lake views and there is a great area lakeside by the docks for sitting and visiting. Wonderful staff. Can't wait to return next year.
