The hotel is perched high on a hill overlooking beautiful Table Rock Lake.
The hotel is nicely decorated with an atrium and water fall in the lobby. We had room 230. The room itself was nice. Everything seemed new and clean. The room was average to large in size with two queen beds and a large flat screen television. There was a wet bar area in the room, itself, but it did not include a mini-bar or fridge. The bathroom was large with a huge vanity area. One nice touch was a hamper in the bathroom for wet towels (you didn't have to leave them on the floor or in the tub if you wanted them to be replaced.) Overall, the rooms were comfortable, clean and nice.
Our room, unfortunately, had absolutely no view. We had one window that looked out at the roof of the entrance. Seriously, we looked at a steepled roof. We did not complain as we were on business. I'm sure their are rooms with great views, most with sliding doors and small balconies. Just avoid this room if you would like a view.
The pool was nice with a great view, and usually not too crowded in the morning. It could get difficult to a chair later in the day. Also, on the ground floor near the pool there was a large patio area with tables and comfortable chairs. There was also a fountain. This was a nice area to sit and relax, read, have a drink, and enjoy the view of the lake and mountains.
There was a nice sweets and coffee shop from which you could grab a coffee and muffin or cinnamon rool for breakfast or ice cream of cake for dessert. The prices at this shop were rather reasonable and the servings large. I did eat at the restaurant for breakfast twice, once having the buffet and the other ordering off the menu. I didn't think the buffet was worth the money. Anything at the buffet could be ordered off the menu, and some of the items on the buffet were soggy, etc. The prices were high, but similar to other hotel restaurant prices. It was never busy, and the food was pretty good, but not great. The service was good, although the hostess was not the friendliest.
One nice amenity was a small movie theater that showed two movies daily. The first showing at 2 p.m. was always a kids movie, and the second at 7 p.m. was usually PG or PG-13. Popcorn was served. This was a nice diversion on a rainy afternoon.
One afternoon, we rented a pontoon boat and tube from the hotel marina. This was by far the highlight of the trip. The rental fee was reasonable ($200 for 4 hrs. plus gas.) The lake is very large and rather pretty. It is also deep. There were several places for everyone to stop and jump off cliffs into the water. Very fun.
