This place is a wonderful quaint hideaway, it is a clean, quiet location with easy access to other areas where you can visit the big restaurants on Lake of the Ozarks but still have your quite home to go back to. Down the street from a landing but has docks just outside your door. You can rent a pontoon or... More

Thanks for the wonderful review. Being out on the water is the best part of the lake - we have a number of lake front restaurants just a short boat ride away with different food specials. Be it a family outing, young adults or the young at heart make the "Waters Edge Motel" your home away from home. More

Love this place. The owners take great pride in their property and are friendly with their guests. Everything was very neat and clean. The property was very well maintained and cared for. Not many rooms, so better book yours now. Just up the road from a nice diner and the great bar/restaurant called coconuts.

This was such a beautiful place to stay! It exceeded our expectations. It was priced reasonably; immaculately clean, and the owners treated you like old friends.It's been 6 or more years since we had the opportunity to take a mini vacation, but we are already trying to figure a way to "escape" back there again in the fall. There were... More

First time staying at this location. I was amazed. The amenities are great, the rooms are clean, the service was above & beyond. I plan on coming back more often to stay here. I recommend the Ocean View & play some volleyball. You can use a gas or charcoal grill. Also, roll away beds are available. They sell ice at... More

Thanks for the very nice review, Robin and I hope that you can return soon, we both enjoyed your statement about the ocean view room - if you were to stay here during a large storm, our lake view does at times looks like a ocean. Again Thanks for the Review. More

I can not say enough good things about this motel. Myself and my 3 "girlfriends" spent 3 nights here last week and had such a great time. Robin went above and beyond for us. Loved that the grounds and room were so clean and right on the water. We will defiantly be back next summer. Thanks again Robin for your... More

The motel is right on the water. Very clean rooms and the owners are extremely nice. We were very happy with our choice of places to stay in this area and will be back for a return visit. Next time I will bring my fishing pole and walk down to the dock.

I picked this place because did the amazing reviews but I was not as impressed. It was just ok. My husband and I checked in and owner took us to our tiny room.

Just returned from the Ozarks and needed a place to stay for one night before our family arrived. Seeing all of the great reviews we were able to get a really nice quiet place to stay.
