I checked in with my 2 granddaughters, 3 and 2. We went to our cabin and the key card didn't work. It was 108 outside and I had already unloaded the kids so I called the desk. She said she would send maintenance. 20 minutes later, maintenance came and said the lock was fine and I needed a new card....

I stayed here two nights for a family. This resort is by no means luxurious, but it is no worse than most average chain hotels. Yes, there are some bugs and dirty spots, but most guests are in and out of the lake all day, so that is to be expected. My two biggest complaints are the beds (old and...

We had a total of 3 cabins for 3 nights for a family boating trip. I'll start by saying I work in hotels and manage multiple large branded hotel properties. So, I do have pretty high standards for where I sleep when I travel. I dialed it back a notch, putting into perspective it is a lakeside cabin at a...

Pool and pool area were in great shape. Staff at Reilly's was friendly. Room was quiet! Now for the not good.......staff at hotel was not welcoming. Very little interaction. The room....Shower knob was black with mildew. The filters in the AC were completely covered in ?????. The cobwebs were plentiful on the balcony. They do offer free bicycle rentals to...

We had stayed here many times when we lived in Illinois, so we thought we would try it again on our way through. What a mistake! The boatel was filthy, shower didn't work, mini fridge didn't work, clock was broke, outside chairs were filthy with weeds growing through the deck, feet got filthy from carpeting. The only bright spot was...

My parents stayed here in one of the Botels on our trip to Rend Lake. When they arrived to their room the door was open. No one was in the room but some reason the door was left wide open. Obviously this seems like a security concern. While they were unpacking they saw the extra linens on the shelf by...

Rend Lake Resort was selected as host hotel for a family reunion, bringing 70 family members together from as far as Florida and Arizona. The surrounding park and lake are wonderful (except for electricity at pavilion that hadn't worked in long time). After myself and several other family members switched rooms (But were in no better condition), it is fully...

We have been staying at Rend Lake Resort for more than 10 years. The location is close enough to home to spend a weekend. However, the resort has been steadily going down hill through the years. The cabins are in a beautiful spot with views of the lake; but they are dated and showing significant signs of wear-peeling wallpaper, stained...

If you want to stay at a clean place with housekeepers that do their job, don't stay at this "resort." We reserved a cabin at this place and found out quickly that nothing is cleaned or taken care of there. We checked into our cabin and upon entering first saw the carpet was not vacuumed, then there was the slimy...

Was there for a huge wedding. We booked most of the cabins, hotel rooms and botel. Everyone who was attending the wedding had issues with their accommodation. Our cabin had major issues. Broken furniture, broken tv, hand prints all over the wall, semen on the comforter and blanket, hair in the beds, shower curtain covered in mold and mildew, broken...
