5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 September 2011

This resort property is out of the way of traffic, yet convenient to shopping and restaurants. The resort has a boutique as well as a market area, two dining areas, and a spa. The front desk people are more than helpful. There is a dock area and watercraft rentals on this 100 mile long lake. Great mini vacation experience.

Room Tip: The spa was wonderful and the nightlife, although catering a bit towards the "younger" cro...

I just have to give big ups to the staff, especially Chris Airds (the head of security), for the stellar job that they are doing at the Camden hotel. They were very curtious and very helpful. I misplaced a bag that had my cellphone, wallet, and camera that i figured was gone. Not only did the staff help me look but Chris held on to everything for my and returned it to me. Thanks again and I will be staying at your hotel in the future. People if you want to stay at a great, fun, and exciting hotel with a safe atmosphere stay at The Camden on the lake Resort.

This hotel is VERY CROOKED and will try to add extra costs to bill . You will be charged for room service you never ordered. Was given different room than ordered online. Found out at check out still billed higher price. Told manager about incorrect pricing and was told " if I didn't stop complaining" I would soon see "extra service fees" tacked onto bill. THEY ARE OUT TO STEAL YOUR MONEY!!! The room smelled terrible and later in the night found old rotten food in drawers. Told management and they said would clean. They never did. Plumbing is terrible and toilet leaked all over bathroom. Complained and staff did nothing to fix. I have heard from other people they will offer you "three nights for the price of two" deals and they just lie to you and charge credit card for all three.

Thank you so much for taking the time to tell us about, what was obviously a bad experience for you at our resort. Customer comments are an important tool when managing any size property, and we take them very seriously. Our management team will be looking into the problems you encountered during your stay and I can assure you that changes in procedures and possibly personnel will be forthcoming. I find it extremely upsetting that we did not meet the standards you should be able to expect when staying with us, and I would like to offer you my personal apology along with that of of our entire staff. I can assure you that we will correct these problems and we can only hope that you will see fit to try us again.

Everything was great about the resort. Fun, boats, friends!!! Spotless room the sofa bed was awful ending up on the floor. Wanted a double and did not realize that meant a sofa bed. Needs to be a sleep number sofa bed or another bed.

Room Tip: If you need a double make sure you don;t get one with a sofa bed.

You will not be disappointed in the quaility of the rooms at Camden on the Lake, the suites are beyond beautiful with everything you need, including a washer and dryer. While they are a little off the beaten path, the drive is worth the effort.

Room Tip: Room rates will be cheaper outside peak tourist season

Excellent customer service, gorgeous rooms, and clean. I wouldn't recommend this to anyone looking for a family vacation however, as the only pool is surrounded by a swim up bar full of drunk middle aged sun burnt people. The pool is also very loud as it is surrounded by bars and live music. Don't worry, you cannot hear the noise from your rooms. Camden on the Lake is absolutely beautiful, but not a family atmosphere.

Room Tip: Rooms without lake views are quite

Thank you for commenting on your visit to our resort. We are so glad that you liked the room and it's always great to hear that our customer service met your expectations. We do try to be as "Family friendly" as possible, and we closely monitor the atmosphere around our pool to make sure it is an environment that everyone can enjoy. Even those pesky middle aged sun burnt folks. We hope that you will visit us again and again.

Nice hotel and nice room.

H Toad food was ok certainly not great. Poor selection of Ice Cream - a huge missed business opportunity.

Pool doesn't have enough lounge chairs and the pool bar should have a larger drink menu.

All in all I'd say this should be a $150/night hotel - overpriced.
