Reviewed August 4, 2013

Found this little 44 room inn by chance, but very glad we did. Had stayed in several terrible hotels in the Ozarks before this, and are happy wih this one. Rooms are very clean and have everything you need. In a fairly small lot size they have an outdoor pool, indoor pool, twisty waterslide for the kids, a bounce house, mini golf, and 2 hot tubs. Owner is really nice and tries to accommodate. We were in room 201 and it was quiet, eventhough there were two rooms full of kids just next door. Breakfast is included and well stocked. There is a machine to make pancakes and waffles, they had eggs, sausage, and biscuits that you could pop in the microwave. Fruit, LOW FAT yogurt, and it is all set up in a most efficient way. They also had coffee, a variety of juices and milk. I was able to make breakfast within about 5 minutes and took it up to the room. There were also tables there to sit and eat. I have already recommended this hotel to others, and will be back whenever we are in the Ozarks. Make sure to reserve early-they are small and were sold out both nights we were there.

Room Tip: Ask the owner when you call.

We were alittle nervous about staying here because we normally stay with friends on the lake but this time, we decided to reserve a room. We took a chance and stayed here and I must say it was great. The owners bent over backwards to make your stay welcoming. The rooms are older, but in great shape. Both pool areas are clean and fun, they even have a small miniature golf course. The best part was their breakfast.... it beats all the continential breakfasts out there. They had something for everyone and it was ALL good!! We will definitely choose this place again.

My family and I stayed in this hotel when we went to Osage Beach to do so back to school shopping at their outlet mall. We stayed one night and it was great. The owners, a husband and wife, were very friendly and made themselves available to help when needed. The kids loved the pools and big slide and the property was clean and well kept. The hotel is within walking distance to several hotels and a 5 minute ride to the outlet mall.
The room was clean and the shower water pressure was great. The continental breakfast the next morning was good and everyone worked hard to keep the food stocked and orderly. The owner, the husband, was at breakfast helping and socializing and even gave our kids, and all the kids in the dining room, stuffed animals to keep as a souvenir. The only thing I didn't like was the pillows on the bed but that is a personal preference and wouldn't keep me away in the future. I would, and will, definitely return as it is the best place I've stayed in Osage Beach and I've been many times.

We checked out of the Holiday Inn after just one night. It was awful there. We found the Guest House and we were happy we did. We had only planned to stay for three nights but we stayed for five. The rooms were very clean. The staff was very friendly. They had a very clean saltwater pool and two hot tubs. All very clean and well kept. Stay here and don't bother with the chains like Holiday Inn.

We had reserved one room for one night. We checked in and were pleasantly surprised at the spaciousness of the rooms as well as the cleanliness. After the first night we decided that we wanted to let the kids have their own room and we wanted to stay an extra night. The hotel was sold out, however the owner made a note and contacted us as soon as she had a cancellation.

The hotel has an indoor pool with two above-ground Jacuzzi's, this pool stays cooler than the outdoor pool because it is shaded and was welcome relief on hot July days. The outside pool had warmer water and came alive at night with water sprays and a pool light that made the water change colors. The kids had a blast in it after dark. Also, they have a great water slide in the outdoor pool area that even the adults had fun on. They also have a small putt-putt available for guests.

The breakfast buffet was basic, eggs, sausage, toast, bagels, oatmeal, cereal, juice, and on the weekends they had pancakes. The best part was that the owners are there taking care of guests, not a disgruntled employee. I think it's the fact that the owners are actually there making sure that things run smoothly that makes the place extraordinary.

There are plenty of dining options around the hotel as well as grocery stores if you want to stock up the refrigerator in each room. You also have a microwave available to warm up leftovers. The hotel is right between the upscale shopping of Osage Beach and the younger oriented Lake Ozark Bagnel Dam area. There is plenty of mini golf, go carting, and water activities to keep everyone happy. If you're there on a Saturday night, make sure to check out the all you can eat seafood Saturday night at Chicago Brothers Pizza in Osage Beach.

My husband and 2kids are here right now and it is amazing! All of the employees and very friendly and love the answer questions and help out. The breakfast had lots of yummy options, they even gave our kids a little toy while we were sitting out there. My 8yr old son said to me while we were walking back to our room, "i love this hotel, those guys were so nice". Everything if clean. The pools are great and we all enjoyed the waterslide, they even have a small mini golf area outside! We will definatly be back in the future.
