"Disappointing"
When I check into the hotel, I did NOT realized that there was an extension called the Estates. Our room was too far away from the hotels main lobby and activities. The room was dirty. The bathroom had mold around the toilet and bathtub. There was hair on the sink and in the bathtub. Who ever cleaned the room, you better have a talking too because they need additional training on housekeeping. The bedcovers look like something from the 1970's. The place just seemed outdated. I probably will NOT be staying at the hotel in the future. It's not worth the priced paid. VERY DISAPPOINTED!

"last minute quick trip"
Loved our stay. Only negative was being a Friday (a work day) and checking in late we thought the pools etc. didn't stay open late enough. By the time we checked in and ate dinner we only had 20 minutes to swim. :(

"Not at all what we hoped for."
The staff was friendly as was service though a fast paced environment. Amenities are good but condition of rooms lack much luster for dollar value received. As with most resort properties you will be billed an extra service fee after your stay. If was looking for a place to stay without my kids, it would be somewhere else for sure.

"Perfect"
This resort was great. My kids 3,8,13 yrs enjoyed themselves. I would say their water park is not worth $17 a person. More geared for younger kids. Bowling ally needs to be updated as the games in the bear den. I would say almost all the amenities are over priced. But the room and staff were great. Very clean.

"Weekend at LOTO Missouri"
Booked a weekend at Lake of the Ozarks during the 2014 Powerboat Shootout. Room was a suite, right on the water in a 4-plex. King size bed, Jacuzzi tub, private deck, close parking, very private and quiet. Dining on site was excellent as were amenities. Planning another trip in the next few months to this resort.

"Old and Tired Resort"
At check in there was one clerk, there were 10 people waiting in line. It took about 20 minutes to get to the check in counter. I requested a room with a view of the lake and the clerk, said "Oh you booked through Expedia and we don't offer lake view rooms with those bookings." She checked the computer and said she could put me in a room with a lake view, on the 4th floor of a building with no elevator, or in a non lake view room in another building next to the lodge. I opted for the non lake view building. My room was below the Putt putt golf course. It was very dungeon like. No cell service available and musty smelling. The parking garage beneath the building had very small parking spaces and very few spaces. I had to park outside on several occassions and walk quite a distance to the building. The food during the convention was very good. The ice cream shop was very nice.

"Small Getaway"
Tan Tar A is a fairly nice place to go for the price. It was Myself, Wife and 4 Year old daughter. Plenty to do in the resort for free. Outside pools are great almost make you forget you are in MO. Taking a "little" hike (with a toddler) around the resort will keep you entertained as well. Plenty of scenery. Walking down and feeding the fish and ducks on the marina. One of the days we stayed it was stormy so we opted to pay the $17 a person for the indoor waterpark. It is not too big of a place but it definitely keeps the kid busy. The Sabarro pizza very reasonable $13 for a large pizza. Overall it was a nice place. A few things that could have been better customer service lacked a bit, employees must remember most people coming are tourist. They should approach the customer if they look like they have questions, instead of us seeking them out and making it feel like its a hassle. Just from what I witnessed did not actually happen to me. I feel that we did not enjoy over 50% of the resort due to not knowing. Did not really want to be a bother either. Landscaping could have been better we stayed in Building "D" on the backside. Its all weeds and a few bushes. I would have enjoyed the patio more if it was a nicer landscape. Rooms were very clean, parking for us was very easy, but I can see that being an issue on a busy night.

I booked a one night stay for my children and I with the option for Tan Tar A to choose my room at the time of check-in. Although I wasn't able to get a room directly on the resort I was assigned to the Tan Tar A Estates. I loved it! The room was clean and comfortable. Being away from the resort gave it a cabin feeling. If we needed to make a trip to the resort, I just made simple phone call to guest services to request a ride from the Shuttle bus. I expected a 20 minute wait for the shuttle bus, but each time they came within 5-10 minutes. The resort provided so many options for food & fun that we will definitely be returning in the future.

"Unclean Outdated Rooms"
My family and I left early due to the conditions of the room. We were supposed to stay two nights only stayed one. Our room felt like we we were in basement. The floor was filthy no one wanted to take their shoes off. There was little lighting. The comforters and decore were old. The worst part was we had a mouse visit us around 2am. We left first thing in the morning. I will not ever return to this property. Save your money.

"Our risk payed off"
We read all the reviews about the various places to stay in Osage Beach, and decided on Tan Tar A. Some review were good, others not so good, so we weren't sure what to expect and we needed somewhere to stay. We weren't looking for something super fancy, but we did want something clean and nice. As soon as we drove into the resort, we were surprised by how big and pretty it was. Our cabin/room was right on the water and we had a small kitchen which was spotless (including the refrigerator). The bathroom was clean as well. We were very pleased with the place, although it could use a bit updating. There were two pools which were also very clean, a large game room for the kids, a marina, a golf course and many other amenities that we didn't have time to check out. If you are looking for a really nice place in a beautiful area, you will love it.

"quick leisure trip"
I was with my family in a rental home the week before and stayed an extra night at Lake of the Ozarks with my sister. We stayed in the main lodge and had a very nice two king bedroom with a view of the lake. My room wasn't ready when I got there early but I took my niece and nephew to the pool, hit the water slide ordered pizza and drinks poolside and had a blast. We went into town and rented jetskis, had a blast. We ate at the restaurant that night andwas surprised at how good the food was,our server was young and clearly new at serving but very nice. The resort is big and busy but I still had a great time abd would do it again.

"Summer Get Away"
Great stay, but they were sold out when we arrived. A lot of effort to get us into a room that would fit 5 as promised on Hotels.com. They figured it out though. We loved the Marina! Tubing and fishing was wonderful. They don't rent fishing rods or sell coolers so we had to go to the Walmart to buy them. Wish we would have known that ahead of time so we didn't have to go buy them. Otherwise, great stay and beautiful view.

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.

"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.

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.

"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.
