“Lovely!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2012

We spent a night here for my birthday, we opted for the king studio since we were just spending a night before meeting friends at a condo we were staying in for the week. The staff at check in was very friendly. The room was clean and the bed was comfy. Only objection was the lg. comforter, it was too warm considering the unseasonably warm temps we've been experiencing. It was warm enough for us to sit on the balcony and have a drink while watching the sunset om 11/25! We thought this place was a real find and would go back! We did spend a Sun. nite, and I think there was only 1 other car in the lot.

Room Tip: Ask for a lake view.

We came down for a one night stay and our room was so spacious, small kitchen, living area, large bathroom with dual shower heads and a very large bedroom area. We loved the small balcony that over looked the water. There was a nice bar/restaurant connected, which was ok. The smell of the Aveda spa products lingers as you walk through the halls, very nice and calming. It is very quiet in the off season, which I did enjoy. I do imagine that it would be a very noisy, chaotic place in the summer months.

Thanks for taking a moment to tell us about your stay. It is nice and quiet during the winter season, and yes the summer does brings a different feel to our Resort. We do make every effort to minimize the changes that occur with the seasons, and hope that you will visit us again real soon.

We were here in November during midweek and there were only half a dozen cars in the parking lot. Definitely off season! The view is amazing with a nice balcony off the room. I am guessing it would be pretty noisy in the summertime with an outdoor bar and large party area near the water. The room was beautiful with electric fireplace and kitchenette. The bathroom was large with dual shower and tv. There was free wireless but we did not have reliable cell phone reception at all. We got a decent rate on the room but I do object to paying a "resort fee" in the off season. The H. Toads restaurant onsite was surprisingly good, and you can't beat the $2 red solo cup draws!

Thank you for your comments about your stay at our Resort. We love it when the only thing that wasn't up to par was the cell phone reception. Seriously, in this area it really depends on which carrier you use and where their towers are located, when you are down as close to the water as we are. We hope to have the Red Solo Cup special continue, so please come back and enjoy our part of the Lake of the Ozarks again.

This hotel was built as a condo development but sales apparently stopped when the real estate market slowed in 2008. As a result, the units are now rented and they're nothing short of opulent. If you have a chance to stay here, do yourself a favor and take it.

Room Tip: Try to get a lakeview room as there is little to see on the other side but the views of the lake its...

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.
