“Nice but not great.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

Stayed here for 1 night on a recent trip w/ my mother. The room was spacious and the decor was definitely up to date w/ granite in the kitchenette and a large tile and glass shower in the bathroom. Our room had a full water view and a nice balcony w/ seating and tables. There is an on-site restaurant but no room service, that I was aware of. We did have off the menu breakfast in the restaurant and the food was good and our waitress very pleasant. Our room was also a good value and we got the best rate from their website. However the room was not as clean as I would have liked.The granite in the kitchen was dirty and the glasses and coffee pot were also dirty. If the room had been spotless this would have been a home run!

Room Tip: Lakeside Suites have water view. Ask for a room away from the movie theater.

This hotel is a great place to stay. The ooms are bigger than some people's first apartments! The beds are just awesome. I've stayed here in the summer and let's just say I'm not a partier! It was SOOO loud it was awful! This stay was in October and it was just fabulous. The food at H.Toads was great also. If you don't like loud music blaring, stay here in the off-season.

Thanks for taking the time to write about your experience(s) at our Resort. I love the comment about "peoples first apartments" and we may have to use that in some advertising. Yes, we admit the off season is much quieter than the summer months, and we really are looking for ways to improve on that. Thanks for your continued support.

Of all the places to stay in the Lake of the Ozarks area, NONE matches the decadence of Camden on the Lake. We were there to celebrate our wedding and were treated like a king and queen. The room overlooked the lake, had a nicely appointed terrace and was very quiet. There was a full kitchen with an eat at bar, a "jacuzzi" bathroom with a TV, and below the large flat screen in the living area was a delightful electric fireplace. Linens and pillows on the king size bed were excellent. The resort was in contact with me a few days prior to our arrival to discuss off-season nuances. Heather, head of housekeeping and retail met us when we left and was so gracious to make sure our stay was everything we had hoped for. It was. A special thanks to Michael, the manager, for his ongoing diligence to keep COTL the number one property on the lake.

The room was great. High end living in the suite. Food at the H.Toad was good and the conference rooms were very good. It wasn't the easlies to get to the conference rooms, but thankfully the wether was nice so you could walk outside to the conference rooms.
Staff was very friendly and helpful.
This is a good place for a smaller conference, they can give you tht personal attention that make the conference go well.

While I was extrememly impressed with the rooms and cleanliness of Camden on the Lake, the layout of the conference rooms let something to be desired, as did the support staff service. The food was excellent, the rooms were amazing, and the ambience is quiet and lush. If you are doing a smaller conference, or just visiting for pleasure, this is an excellent hotel. If you have a large conference, find a different venue, or plan to have some delays in service and some confused participants!

Room Tip: Ask for a lake view.
