We came in on an RCI exchange. It was listed as "silver" but no way. The place is just OK. Everything is very "tired" and needs updating. Most windows, if they open, hardly close and the balcony was covered in spider webs. There is a great golf course on the property.

Nice quiet place to relax in this RCI resort. We stayed in Studio and it was spacious & comfortable for two people. Car parking and accesabilty were too convenient. The restaurant in the resort was nice place to dine. We visited few places around this city but each place is around 70 or KMs away. Visited Jefforson City, Grotto, indianola,... More

We stayed here during the State golf tournament. We weren't sure what we were going to find, but it was nice. New beds, larger compact fridge, microwave, and coffee maker. Slept well, rooms were quiet. Staff is very nice every where we went. My only complaint and not a big one was with all their updates a new sink, faucet... More

This was our second stay at this motel. The first time was about six years ago, and when we visited Lake Panorama two years ago we stayed at a local bed & breakfast. The B & B has unfortunately closed. As far as I can tell, there are no other lodging choices within 20 miles. As we were here for... More

Came here for a wedding on the lake and stayed in the "guest house". Upon arrival the front desk was very friendly and quick. Our room was a short drive from the main conference center. The room overall was very basic and dated but very clean! Bring extra pillows as the ones provided are very flat.

To say needs up dating does not even begin to touch the situation. First let me say if you plan to check in after 5 pm and have not been here before prepare to be lost. Finding the key in the box was the easy part....finding the guest house was another. It was all a little confusing. My first impression... More

My wife and I stayed here on an RCI timeshare exchange. I don't golf, but we still enjoyed the stay. Is there a lot to do in Panora? Heck, no! But that didn't stop us. We made a series of side trips, none of which was much over an hour's drive away. And the drives were through some very pretty... More

Nice resort, dated rooms but large and clean. OK for a quiet family retreat. Good lake beach close to the resort. Here is what you nedd to consider......Great golf course but book tee times before you book the resort.

The main issue that I had with the motel, was the customer service. We had called ahead and reserved a room. We, however, were checking in around 9:00pm. At that time the check in office was closed and they said they would leave our key in a specified location that we could pick it up at. This seemed rather odd... More
