This is an excellent example of the old highway hotels of yesteryear that has been well maintained and cared for. I stayed in a small stone bungalow with a kitchenette. The room was furnished nicely with mostly vintage wood furniture. Had a large kitchen area with microwave, fridge, coffepot, toaster, dishes and dining table, small bathroom (shower only), and sleeping area. Seasonal pool, friendly staff, decent parking. Reasonably close to the old strip and McDonalds across the street. Free WIFI, although it was not always working. Perfect for a small family outing.

I live just outside of St. Louis and love going to the Lake for a quick getaway. This was my second stay at Rockwood. Facilities are old – but charming. Clean and well kept. Seasonally, they have two pools and two hot tubs available. Family friendly and centrally located near the Bagnell Dam/tourist strip. Minutes from shops and restaurants, whether you are going to entertain small children or want to hit the adult night life. McDonalds across the street and plenty of fine dining establishments as well. This is a throwback motel from a long time ago, but you won’t be disappointed in the price or the service. Some units have kitchens and bedrooms and some are just rooms. Personally, I am getting a girl trip together soon and staying in the 2 bedroom bungalow – sleeps 7 and has a full kitchen. Looking forward to going back

Seriously, I really did want to like this place, from it's unassuming location on the Bagnall Dam strip to our semi-private cabin (it was a cabin with two separate rooms), but the poor mattress, the thin walls between the heads of the beds, the lack of a deadbolt or other secure locking mechanism), the very small shower, and the reverse room cleaning signs (you have to put the sign on your door to have the room cleaned, ours "fell" off one day and was laying between the door and the screen) all added up to less than a satisfactory experience. Some might also rate this as a minus, but I enjoyed the band of raccoons we saw every night raiding the trash containers next to another cabin. My opinion may have been different about the raccoons if it had been our cabin that was right next to the trash containers.

The staff were friendly and the place is not bad. But check your beds closely for bugs as we had company in our room.
The location is excellent, as you can walk to plenty of bars and restaurants.
The pools are basic but do serve their purpose to keep your kids entertained for a couple hours.

The guy at the front desk was a jerk. He refused to let my disabled blind grand daughter's service dog to stay even after it was confirmed and we had the paperwork. Karma gonna get him. I would never ever recommend anybody staying there and dealing with that man. He is hopeless

Owner got hostile and called in his wife when they saw our service dog in my car. Our son has a vision impairment due to brain surgery and cancer treatment. I explained this animal stayed with our son even in the hospital with cancer and His wife then said no you're not welcome here with the dog.
I asked for a refund which she said she would give.
My husband called them to explain the federal law and policies with hotels (we have never had a problem or ever been refused service) and Jeff proceeded to cuss my husband out and told him to bring his ass back there for a fight. What the hell is wrong with these people?
Stay somewhere else. Save yourself the unnecessary drama

Owners are great and always available if you need anything. Very relaxed environment, walking distance from everything. Very clean pool and motel. Serious about no pets and smoking indoors. McDonald's literally right across the street. Would highly recommend.

Simple, clean, comfortable. Didn’t use the pool but it looked good. Well-kept in general. Recently renovated room. Security seems prevalent. Great location. I have stayed from luxury hotels to budget. This was great value for the price.

Perfect spot for the Bridge and Damn 5k, 10k, and Half Marathon. Easy walk to the strip. Everything was neat and clean. Check in and check out was easy. Not many motels left like this at the lake. The rock cabins and 50's vibe was perfect. Family atmosphere.

Stayed at the Rockwood with my family, and was very pleased with the accomodations and the friendly atmosphere. Great location as is close to everything, the pools were the cleanest I have seen and very inviting and relaxing, the kids had fun on the old "Strip" area. It was nice to have just found this nice, clean and safe place with all the nostalgia and that old time feeling! Whenever in Lake Ozark, this is where I will stay! Thanks!
