Camden on the Lake Resort Awarded TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence

Resort is highest-rated hotel at the Lake of the Ozarks

The guests have spoken!  Camden on the Lake Resort has again earned the 2016 TripAdvisor® Certificate of Excellence, officials announced today.  This is the Resort’s 5th TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence in a row.  The achievement celebrates hospitality businesses that consistently deliver quality customer service, evident in exceptional ratings and visitor reviews. 

“Simply the best.” “Heaven.” “Beautiful place to stay!”  Real reviews from visitors rate Camden Resort highest of any hotel at the Lake of the Ozarks, calling it the perfect venue for a vacation getaway, group event, or business trip. 

“We thoroughly enjoyed our suite!” said Camden Resort visitor Vanessa H.  “It was spacious, fully stocked with a comfy bed and amazing view!  The lakeside balcony offered a perfect place for early morning quiet reflection.  The staff was very accommodating and polite.  Would go back in a heartbeat!”

“Since we took over management last year, we’ve worked hard to continue elevating Camden on the Lake into the premiere Resort experience,” said Chris Heinz, President of Lodging One Hospitality, which manages day-to-day operations at Camden on the Lake.  “Our team always aims to deliver top-notch service to our guests, and the proof of our hard work is in the reviews.  We are delighted to win this Certificate of Excellence.”

This award adds to the Resort’s accolades. This year, the Resort’s entertainment complex was voted Best Entertainment at the Lake, and H. Toads Chef Chris Messinio won the Silver Cup Chef’s Challenge.

Camden Resort features 117 luxurious condo suites and overlooks the marina and H. Toads entertainment complex on the seven-mile mark of the Lake.  Guests rave about the fully furnished kitchens, spacious living rooms, and large bathrooms in each suite, along with dual showerheads and optional Jacuzzi tubs, in-suite laundry units, and private balconies overlooking the lake or scenic woods.  

Amenities include casual dining, retail shops, fitness center, full service AVEDA salon and spa, multi-media theatre, marina and boat charters, hot tubs and an outdoor swimming pool with swim-up bar.  The Resort is also ideal for conferences and special events, with more than 19,000 square feet of meeting space, full service catering, and convention services. 

“With the Certificate of Excellence, TripAdvisor honors hospitality businesses that have consistently received strong praise and ratings from travelers,” said Heather Leisman, Vice President of Industry Marketing at TripAdvisor.  “This recognition helps travelers identify and book properties that regularly deliver great service.  TripAdvisor is proud to play this integral role in helping travelers feel more confident in their booking decisions.”

The Certificate of Excellence accounts for the quality, quantity and recency of reviews submitted by travelers on TripAdvisor over a 12-month period.  To qualify, a business must maintain an overall TripAdvisor bubble rating of at least four out of five, have a minimum number of reviews and must have been listed on TripAdvisor for at least 12 months.
