We stayed 1 night while attending swap meet close by. It was a great find, clean and spacious room. Comfortable bed. Beautiful setting on the water. Bathroom a little outdated, but clean and functional.

Hi all! I can not rave enough about the Waters Edge Motel! Nice little spot on the lake for your family. We didn’t get to play in the water due to rain and races...but it was comfortable, quiet, and clean. The view was amazing! The hotel was full when we stayed, we didn’t hear any other guest. We watched a family grill, fish and swim off the dock. We were asked everyday if we needed fresh towels too! There is a dollar general right across The street for easy shopping. I will definitely stay here again when we have time to relax!

We had a family reunion here with a spacious yard leading up to a dock and the kids had plenty of room to run and play yard games. The family rented the entire place and it was like home. This part of the lake is very quiet. The rooms are very clean and comfortable.The owner goes out of her way to make your visit great.

We love the Waters Edge! We come every July and look forward to visiting the area. It's a family friendly motel and Robin goes out of her way to make you feel welcome. The rooms are comfortable and meticulously clean. The grounds and dock are well maintained. Over the years we've spent many a night sitting out and visiting with other guests. Can't wait to come back next year.

This trip started on a whim and boy am I glad it happened. The staff is attentive, accommodating, and efficient. The attendant even waited on us to arrive before closing the office. The grounds and rooms are pristine. I am planning to return with my children. I had never visited this area but I love it!

Robin and I are so happy that you found our little place next to the water here on the west side of the Lake of the Ozarks. Robin is always happy to accommodate guests. We look forward to your return with the kids, swimming - kaykas - paddle boat and Bar-B-Ques in the lake front yard is at the ready for your and the children fun. Don't forget fishing, hooking the big one always makes a kid smile.

We had driven past this motel for years whenever we vacationed at the Lake. Finally because we had reason to stay on the "west side" we gave it a try. We've been back twice since. Wonderful place to stay - clean, quiet, easy access, beautiful view, and the owners are great. You can't see the best part from the highway - you have to stay there to enjoy the lakeside view!

Robin and I are so glad that you have stayed with us - YES - the best part of our facility can not be viewed from the highway - OUR LAKE FRONT YARD. The west side of the Lake of the Ozarks here on the ten (10) miles mark of the Gravois Arm is so relaxing. Robin and I will be looking forward to your return visit, your room is ready.

For eight years we've stayed at Waters Edge while we're in town for our family reunion. We like rooms 8 and 9 since they're ground level to a beautiful green lawn looking out on the lake but we've stayed in other rooms and they're all equally clean and comfortable. It's a great place to stop for the night or for a vacation since they have water sports, outside grills, fire pit and close to local attractions. Our room had a microwave, small refrigerator and free internet. Very reasonably priced and Robin is wonderful and so accommodating.
