I've stayed here before but this was the worst. Killed three roaches and a spider before I was in the room for an hour. Then saw a 6 inch long worm in the shower the next morning. Talked to check out to advise them and they said there was nothing they could do. Don't stay there unless you are an... More

Check in went fine and I was even allowed to check in early. It sort of went downhill from there. First the pros: Coffee maker in room, sizable mini-fridge, hot water in shower, COLD AC. Cons: the beds were pretty uncomfortable even by hotel standards, towels were very rough (presumably to save initial cost and to prevent theft). There was... More

We checked in early on a Saturday afternoon in the middle of September, hoping to use some of the amenities of the place. Who would ever think that they would close everything down in September. Found our room overlooking the pool and was covered up, plus the whirlpool was broken, and the restaurant/bar was closed. No fun afternoon after all.... More

I was in Lake of Ozarks for a conference, my company put me up here, thinking I's staying in nice resort. Dont let name or website fool you, and no one is giving me free meals to write this. It was not a good experience. My room was warm, even tho AC unit was working hard. There were spiders and... More

WE stayed only one night Aug 1, 2015. Our room was dirty, blood on the floor in 2 places, walls were nasty, just generally gross. The grounds were full of trash, the pool had no clean towels. I spoke with the staff they told me that the hotel was bank owned I guess that is why they would not take... More

While still charging a premium price for a room, there is little maintenance being done to this resort. Rooms are very dated, but clean. Staff is friendly, but amenities are lacking. Grounds are full of trash and in disrepair. Resort had financial problems and it appears that they are only doing minimum upkeep. Free "continental breakfast" was a small variety... More

This was a beautiful resort in its day, but during our visit this weekend we found it pretty run down. The room was VERY dated but it was clean so I have no complaints about it. The grounds of the resort were very dirty. There was trash all over that looked like it had been sitting for weeks. The outdoor... More

Went in 2013, so this is a little late, but they took very good care of us. Went a bit off-season, pool was closed, but it was still warm enough for most other lake activities. Pool and hot tub area is well maintained. Restaurant on site is great for dinner and brunch. Would come here again. Nice mid-range price place... More

I have stayed in this resort at least once a year since back when it was a Holiday Inn. This is the first time I have felt disappointed completely. The staff is like a smiling crew on a sinking ship. It was a Saturday night in mid July and the restaurant and bar were closed. No activities at the pool.... More
