you can stay in an economy size equipped with T.V. , mini fridge, microwave and coffee or stay on the bottom level lakeside, rooms 8 & 9, my favorite. Rooms are very clean and the grounds are kept very nice. You can fish, boat, paddle boat or just relax on one of their vintage lounge chairs or take cover under...

Thank you Becky for your nice review - yes, the Lake Side Rooms (rooms 8 - 9) are the best with being just steps from the boat docks and lake front yard. Here at the "Waters Edge Motel" relaxing by the water is number one for our guests.

Clean and courteous. Room was wonderful with all the amenities we needed. Great view of the lake. Outdoor grills at the ready. Exactly what we needed -- a nice, relaxing motel that gave us the space we needed to relax and enjoy out stay. Best part were the owners Bob and Robin.

Older Motel, very clean. Bed was comfortable. We got the efficiency room and it nice and very clean, but small. If we come back we will just get a larger room. The owners were very friendly. Good Motel by the lake. They have docks and rent boats. Beautiful view of the lake.

Thanks for posting - we do hope you return to stay with us in the future, up grade next time to a larger Lake View Room, we know that you will enjoy the larger room size. The morning sun raising over the lake is a view that should not be missed.

We came to Gravois Mills for a specific purpose and chose this motel to stay for two days. But it was so pleasant, that we may come here again just for the pleasure of being here. The room was nice and spacious, and we could walk right out to the lake.

Great little motel! Layout is neat and organized, with chairs, picnic tables, and grills out back on the shore, and nice landscaping. Rooms are clean and comfortable, and customer service is excellent. Very affordable, and the owners were polite and helpful. We would absolutely stay here again!
