We ate breakfast there. Our server named Allison was great! She was friendly and had a nice smile. We ordered from the menu and enjoyed our food. One would think cooking an egg to order would be easy, but all too often it is not cooked correctly. My eggs were cooked exactly the way I ordered them. The building is...

I am not convinced by going there that Honey Creek is actually worth all the hype that it seems to have. Seems not as exciting as it claims nor is the staff very well trained or helpful at times with one exception of a staff member named Val. If not for her my stay here would've been terrible.

The room was ok. The water park was nice except for it was not open long. Check out is 11, the water park park opened at 10. The hotel refused late checkout. Other water park hotels allow late check out or open the water park early. Overall, the staff was not accommodating.

Honey Creek Resort was a great location for our family trip. Our kids, all under the age of 9, loved the water park. Everything was clean and well maintained. The resort was beautiful. We can't wait to go back in the summer.

We rented a 4 person cabin for a birthday get-away with our kids and their kids. It was lovely. The kitchen was well equipped, we could gather in the living room for games while the grandkids slept at night and in the morning we peaked out at deer. The water park was a great hit...especially good for the under 6...

Arrived early and was able to get a room with a patio facing the lake which was great since the weather was in the 70's. And also made it easy to walk down to the docks to go fishing. Now if you are more interested in organized activities like nature hikes, bird watching, outdoor cooking lessons to mention a few...

Pros: This is an amazing piece of property! This hotel sits right on Lake Rathbun and has tremendous views. We were there this weekend (2/18) and counted over 20 eagles, hundreds of seagulls and 2 pelicans. There are a lot of walking trails with wonderful views of the water and wildlife. The hotel restaurant has a nice outdoor seating area...

Stayed in 4 bedroom cottage and it was beautiful. Plenty of room for grandkids to play. View was beautiful. Seen eagle fly by very close to cottage was cool. Close enough to resort if it was summer we could have walked to waterpark. Waterpark could have used more seating.

I spent two nights there recently. It was a perfect get-away. Quiet. Beautiful lodge, and beautiful hikes with early winter vistas. The meals were usual American fare, hard as always to get good fresh veggies. The pirate pool was fun but not good if you wanted to swim laps (this is an older person writing, of course, but I did...
