"Not Good enough"
Check in staff was curt. Room location terrible.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Really nice place to stay"
Tan Tara is a huge place with a lot to offer. Would definitely recommend. The restaurant was nice, food was ok, but a bit overpriced for the quality.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Just a day at the lake"
Clean and friendly. Buildings are all being renovated so they have made progress. So much to do here you probably wouldn't have to leave to go anywhere else.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
When we first arrived after booking through expedia we went to check in thinking we would be staying in a hotel room. They then gave us a cabin and told us it was 3-5 minutes from the lodge. We drove around for 20 minutes before deciding to go back and ask for a new room. Finally we found it and we less than impressed with the room. We thought we were […] on a relaxing vacation not a campground. After another 10 minutes of driving around we found the front desk and explained our issues. Luckily Ryan at the front was very helpful and switched our room to something closer to the main attractions and easier to find. He was very helpful and understanding. The Burger King and sbarro pizza were terrible compared to the ones we have in omaha. The pool was nice but the Jetty is not a swim up and the pool closes at 9 or 10pm. I wish it had an adult area due to the volume of kids there. Or even late night hours at the pool for adults. There was a convenient store on site the women in there was extremely rude and unhelpful. Parking was hard to find at times. Places off the resort were quite a drive. It was a beautiful lake and view but more of a place for kids. Nothing to do for adults. Highly disappointed with that. The only staff member that was helpful was Ryan at the desk that helped me find a better located room. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"It was lakeside view"
It was nice resort, just extremely big and hard to commute without getting lost, but everything else was nice, people were very friendlyGenuine Expedia guest review
Can't understand why anyone wouldn't like this place. I saw reviews, prior to staying at Tan Tar A, that expressed complaints about the rooms being "dated" or the parking beimg an issue. Please. Parking was fine. The room we had was great, with a great view. I would definitely stay again. No question. Plenty of pools. Beautiful views. Loved it. Stay […] at Tan Tar A.

"Vacation stop for two nights"
The property is well maintained! We enjoyed our stay & wish we had planned a longer stay!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Do not stay in Estates."
The Estates. Wow.. Bad. Loud. Outdated. Will never stay there again. Very dark. Little privacy with other guests in same cabin. Terrible view of lake. Carpet was awful. Told front desk person. Did not seem to care very much. Not a good experience.Genuine Expedia guest review
Very pretty!! Fun things for all agesGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"close to pools and lake"
Room and resort in general could use some updating, but the location can't be beat!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very nice place to stay"
Great location. Staff is very nice. Can't wait to go again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Classic resort with lots of amenities"
Our first introduction to the resort was at night and we were quickly confused as to where to go with our boat in tow. A friendly resort staffer driving a golf cart saved us and helped lead us back to the boat parking area. This is just one of several examples of an outstanding staff making our stay more enjoyable. Although there is a lot of walking […] involved due to the size of the resort, it is well landscaped and beautifully kept. The highlights for us were the excellent outdoor pool (with cocktails available) and the excellent and well kept dock and marina area. This resort is very loaded with things to do, and although it can sometimes seem a little dated, it is very well maintained and has a first class staff. I would definitely recommend this resort for a family vacation. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
A good resort but a bit dated. Some recent work in the lobby is a nice improvement but more work is needed throughout. More food choices would be nice. High charge for indoor water park.Genuine Expedia guest review
My family was treated with absolute greatness. From check-in to check-out, we were completely pleased. Anytime we ever go back to the Ozarks we will be staying at Tan-Tar-A! The pools were great, it was teenager friendly and had absolutely beautiful views!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We didn't know what to expect as this was our first trip but we were pleasantly surprised by how nice the resort was. Had a good time. The waterpark was nice as were the other pools.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Great resort, friendly staff, lots to do!!! The horse ride was great, we rented waverunners and that was nice, a little pricey but nice. The pools are beautiful. The restaurant "Windrose" was so delicious, very nice staff, gave free appetizer and dessert and roses for the ladies. Excellent chef!! A must try!!! Paddle boats were fun, very we'll kept […] resort and would go back :) Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Everything was good except for the beds. They were so uncomfortable! My back was seriously hurting after sleeping on them.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Tan-Tar-A is a great place to stay"
Tan-Tar-A has a great staff who are friendly, helpful and always make you feel welcome. Other than sketchy cell service at various places, it's a great resort for business. For leisure, it's a great location.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
35 minutes to check in. Over priced drinks. Over priced mini golf. Very nice scenary. Sub par parking.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Resort but expected little more cleanliness"
We were here just for a day, the room view was awesome. We saw the evening fireworks from our patio. Excellent amenities, loved the pool area. Only thing was the carpet was really dirty, also the bathroom could have been a little more cleaner. But then again it is peak tourist season may be lot if people are wearing their dirty and wet sandals inside […] the room. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Do your research - customer service is lacking"
Customer service and staff helpfulness was not good. Very little info was given at check-in. I had to ask a lot of questions and do my own research. The room was clean, but lacked toilet paper - good thing I had baby wipes! The bed sank in the middle. The pools and public areas need a good scrubbing or remodel. We were in a "home" with a lake view with […] patio, that part was nice. However we left and when we came back another guest had parked in their room numbered spot and ours leaving us with no where to park. I called security 2 times. Finally the owner of the home came out and moved his car so we could park there. He was very accommodating and nice. Security came 30 min later and drove by - no stop and check to see if we were good. When I mentioned this to the manager at check out she said "they were not resv spots - it was just a numbered spot we could use if open" seeing that there was really no other safe spot this is really stupid. She said she would talk to security. I had to offer the info - she did not ask how my stay was at check-out. Also something the pictures don't tell you is that they charge for the "waterpark" and it's not cheap. They also charge for parents to get in to supervise their own kids. We would not have done this except our 5 year old had her heart set on it. It was fun, but not worth the high cost of admission. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Hotel staff was great providing taxi service for getting around, and the hotel staff was friendly and helpful/accommodating. We stayed at this location so we would have food without having to travel. However, the food was expensive. $11 for a cup of coffee.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Wonderful get a way"
Although remodeling I have been going to tan tar a for for than 10 years this was the best stay. I had a newly remodeled room with a breathtaking view. Staff was so friendly and helpful. Enjoyed the golf course and went on an afternoon cruise. Went by myself and loved it!!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
It was clean and comfortable, great location. They are updating the hotel and our room had two king beds, lots of space. I will certainly check here for available rooms when I need to stay in the area again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"great place to hide out."
needed to get away from work, kids and everyday life. wife and I just shopped and lounged around. will be doing it again soon.Genuine Expedia guest review
Great resort! Love the newly remodeled rooms! Great place for families!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel is undergoing a major renovation of the main lobby area and bar. I was there for a State convention and this taxed the service at the restaurant. Stayed in outlying 4 plex 40 feet from the water but the unit needs extensive maintenance and upgrades. Hotel staff told me that this was in the plans but the main buildings were the first scheduled. […] Kept awake by noisy wall mounted heating system and refrigerator This is an excellent site to enjoy the lake but the hotel complex needs to be revitalized.

"Time hasn't been kind to Tan-Tar-A"
If you're just looking for a place near the lake to stow your stuff during the day while you're out boating or swimming, and you're not going to spend much time at the actual hotel, and you're not super picky about your room, this place is ok. Tan-Tar-A used to be a really nice place, but it's just gone down hill and it's kind of sad to see. The staff, […] I have to say, was first rate. But I was really disappointed in the hotel.

"Millions dollars makeover on old favorite"
This resort has been an outstanding place to stay for over 50 yrs and new ownership is updating all rooms and common areas. It is the same but better. We stayed in a new room with easy access to lobby and shops. The service is excellent. They want you to be comfortable while they continue to work and want you to come back and see it completed. The rooms […] are also a great value. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Tan Tara is an established property located at the Lake of the Ozarks. The room we stayed in was lake view and had been recently updated. The property is very clean, and staff was very helpful with anything we requested. We enjoyed our grandparent weekend, and our three year old loved the Timber Falls indoor water park. All of these facilities are well […] maintained. I would love for them to update the shops located on market street inside the hotel. This is a premier property and we would stay here again:) Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Amazing property right on the lake"
We stayed in a condo with awe-inspiring picturesque views of the lake. each room had a great view of the lake. Modern decor, plenty of room, and very clean. There are lots of fun things to do without even leaving the resort. The staff were very friendly, knowledgeable, and accommodating. This is a great place to stay. There were 6 of us, each couple […] with a different condo and we all had the same experience. Tan tar a is the place to be. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"location was great"
Accommodations were fine. Would have enjoyed a continental breakfast for quick morning start. Enjoyed spacious room.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Stay for 3 days, not much to do in the winter time other than shopping the outlet mall. My kids got bored w the indoor poor that we paid $17 each to get in. The room are so dated.Genuine Expedia guest review
"good place to stay in the Ozarks"
The hotel grounds are very nice and we had a great dinner in the restaurand. The rooms are a bit dated but clean. It would be a fun place to visit in spring or summer.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Tan-Tar-A - friendly staff, great accommodations"
When we checked in we knew we were in a great place. The staff is genuinely friendly and very helpful. Our room was clean and spacious. There were so many great things to do in and around the resort - golf, horse riding, art galleries, state parks, the list goes on. Their in house restaurant (Black Bear Lodge) is amazing - the food was varied and very […] good. We didn't make it to everything in the resort, so we'll have to come back - can't wait.

"Like the lakeside room and view."
It would of helped to know what would not be available at our stay at Tan-tar-a, like the marina. We didn't know that part of their facilities were not available.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great View of the lake"
Overall great experience we would stay there again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Beautiful grounds, amazing room, great staff"
The staff was amazing. I began having a great weekend. Had an unbelievable view of the lake! We went to black bear the first night, soo good! Great waiter there as well!Genuine Expedia guest review
Rooms are in need of updating. The stone walls make the rooms look and feel like the 1970's Carpet was worn and smelled bad. Our original room was very musty smelling. Trees need to be trimmed so you can have a better view of the lake. The Bear Creek Lodge restaurant had good food and the service was good. With some TLC this could be a Great resort. […] Will not stay here again until the resort is updated. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"loads of fun"
We didn't stay long enough to enjoy everything that is offered... indoor water park was a blast....Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Disappointed to find the rooms in desperate need of updating. Have stayed at Tan-Tar-A many times over the years, but it had been 6 or 7 years since we stayed there last Rooms in the main building are very good size, but beds were only full size, carpet was old and dated, dresser and furniture looked like it had been there since the 1980's and I think […] it had. Bathroom needed updating, too. Still a nice resort area, but update the rooms and common areas. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The resort is pretty big. The staff was very helpful as far as locating the room was concerned. The rooms looked a little outdated, but they were clean. The lake view was on a corner, so we got half of a lake view. We left some items in the room and the hotel staff retrieved them from the room and offered to mail them to us. I was very impressed. I […] would stay here again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice for short term stay"
We stayed in the smaller room for our first night. It was very clean, good amenities, and a nice porch area for sitting and visiting other guests.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I was expecting a beautiful hotel with a wonderful lakeview, but we got an offproperty room up un the hill where all what we can see was the roof for the downstairs room. Not really was i wad expecting, we got there at noon as i was told by the hotel personal we can check in if the room was available, but we end up checking in at 6 pm when our "roof […] view" was available! The food at the black bear hotel was really good, the lobby has this smell as ig it were an old old building! Need to update lobby! But besides that it was a good experience. I'll definatelly be back, but making sure i got an on property room with real lakeview. Clerk at the marina not helpfull at all. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Labor Day Fireworks"
Tan-Tan-A is always excellent. The staff are very friendly. This is an older hotel and the rooms are a little dated, but you will spend very little time in the room and likely most of your time using the facilities (pool, water slide, indoor water park, bowling alley, mini-putt, horseback riding, marina etc...). This hotel offers exceptional value for […] the dollar. We especially enjoy the fireworks on long weekends. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

It's a beautiful resort and huge.... this is a resort in a true sense not just swimming pool to give a name resort......its surrounded by lake on both sides....very good for a relaxing weekend with family.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Where to start!?"
We booked 5 nights here for our honeymoon were so disappointed in the resort we left after two nights! The hotel is very very outdated and needs some major cleaning. The pool area was very nice. However it the hours at the pool an other attractions are horrible! The pool bar wasn't even opened on day we were scheduled to me there along with most of […] the restaurants. When the outdoor pool closed very early as well. We picked this resort because of all the attractions but decided to leave when everything was closed and very limited hours also the cleanliness was horrible. We even updated our room and found both hotel rooms in need of a update and major cleaning. We have stayed at many hotels and are very relaxed and easy to please people so were so dissapointed to end our honeymoon early and will not be returning to this resort. The staff was however was very friendly and helpful. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
