Reviewed 28 July 2014

Rooms were new, clean, and comfortable. No coffee pots in rooms, but coffee available in lobby 24/7. Refrigerator in room, sink area separate from toilet/shower area. Vending machine was out of order the day we were there. Continental breakfast only. Stayed one night only and this place is nice if you don't care about a lot of extras.

Road trip one night stay. Extremely pleased with room. Great beds, refrigerator, large restroom with sink outside of door which is a plus. Breakfast pastries, coffee and orange juice. No restaurant or lounge on property. Great restaurant 1 mile north Harborlights.

Our room was large and very comfortable. We slept very well, the beds are soft and the bedding warm. The in room fridge was nice. Everything was sparkling clean. Our request for a ground floor room (due to my husband's recent knee surgery) was accommodated. The hotel was quiet, even though they were fully booked due to a fishing tournament at nearby Rend Lake. The only negative would be the breakfast selection-there was very little my diabetic husband could have. But we were not planning on eating breakfast there anyway as we were visiting friends camping at Wayne Fitzgerall state park (about 3 miles away). We will stay there again.

The actual rating for this property is 3.5 from me, but I can't give that rating.

This is the newer version of the 1960's motor lodge you stayed at with your parents (if you are of a certain age). Not that there is anything wrong with that--in fact, this place is very comfortable and rather cozy. It is also very clean. We stayed here for one night as 'drive by' and it is much more affordable and just as comfortable as many of the chains down the road.

Only 2 complaints about the place. 1. Shower head didn't put out all that much water. Low flow I would guess. 2. Breakfast. But you don't stay at places like this for breakfast. I had an abysmal biscuit and gravy (it was near the end of the breakfast hour, so it could be better earlier, but I doubt it).

The huge plus--beyond being very clean and obviously loved by its owners are the beds. Truly provided a great night sleep.

Room Tip: Go for upper floors. Lower floors you can see the car lights from the parking lot.

Spur of the moment choice. Normally we would choose a chain hotel. SO happy we chose Lake Cove Resort. Less than a year old. The MOST comfortable bed ever. Wonderful bath gel and shampoo/conditioner. Smelled like high-end spa products. Breakfast was danish, oatmeal, fruit coffee and juice - sufficient. If visiting the Rend Lake area - pick this hotel. Staff was great, too.

I stayed at Lake Cove Resort this week and was pleasantly surprised. The hotel is newer and very clean and most importantly, quiet. It is definitely a "no frills hotel" (ask at the front desk for a blow dryer), but the staff is down-home friendly. Rates are extremely reasonable. It is within minutes of Rend Lake and Pheasant Hollow Winery, a real bonus!

We were pleasantly surprised when we arrived to this hotel. It's super clean and looks pretty new throughout. The beds are clean, I did the bed bug check, and cozy. Great place to stay when traveling near or far. We would definitely stay here again.
