Nice quaint hotel. We booked this last minute for labor day weekend and everything else was booked. The pictures that are posted at one time where real but it was not exactly "real time" Check in was a breeze and the front desk lady was very pleasant. Upon visiting our first room, notice i said "first", we were greeted by... More

I will preface this review by saying that this was the 3rd time in the last 6 years that I have stayed at this "resort", each during the month of July. This has always been for a work retreat with a team of 7-10 people. While I have never felt that this was a top-of-the-line resort, I have never been... More

My family and I have visited this resort for the past several years and until this year were pleased. Let me start by saying I am not one of those people who want to pay $100 per night for a room and expect 5 star hotel accommodations. With that said every year in the past they have had daily activities... More

My wife and I visited The Resort at Port Arrowhead this past weekend (August 2-3, 2014). We were on a weekend motorcycle trip with no particular destination. We wound up in Osage Beach and needed a place to stay for the evening. The Resort had decent curb appeal so we pulled in and booked a room. My first impression was... More

I grew up coming to the Holiday Inn Sunspree Resort as a child with my family. Several years ago I came back with my boys when it had changed to the Resort at Port Arrowhead. I was impressed and pleased with how well it had been renovated and maintained. NOT ANYMORE! My boys and I were in the Ozarks this... More

Dear Robert, Thank you for your criticism of our hotel, as we are already addressing many of the issues. Our koi fish were a highlight for many years and you just missed them by a few days. In order for us to clean, paint and kill algae from their pond, they had to be moved to the local hatchery. They... More

Our family along with friends have been going to Port Arrowhead (formerly Holiday Inn) twice a year for the past 15 years. This year the place was awful. ALL of the activites that made this a resort are gone. NO dive in movie, bingo, kids activities, Tiki Bar, music, are things of the past. This is a place crying for... More

Dear Lemmy, Thank you for your input regarding kid's movies, activities and games. For a variety of reasons, (Obamacare, copyright and movie license requirements, besides insurance liability changes and child care license laws), we were required to end some previous "activities". You might be surprised to learn that the number ONE reason we ceased doing "kid-focused" activities and dive-in movies... More

We've been going to Port Arrowhead with friends every summer for the last 7 years. They used to have so much we enjoyed...from the Tiki Bar by the pool, to games and contests all day Saturday that kept us all entertained, young and old alike, to karaoke, to movies at the pool in the evenings. All of these are now... More

I don't know if we got a bad room because we booked through a travel site or what, but our room was filthy! The grounds were not kept up at all! The staff was less than friendly! I usually don't do reviews, but I couldn't keep from this one. I wouldn't want someone to waste their money! Thank goodness we... More
