This was our first stay at the Clarion and we were very pleased. We normally stay at another Choice hotel that is off the 76 Strip because we aren't crazy about the traffic, but that hotel was closed for the winter. Knowing that the traffic on the strip is not bad during this time of year, we chose the Clarion.... More

Our room was comfortable and clean. It was nice, but not luxurious. The bathroom was crowded, but we made due. The balcony was large enough just for the 2 chairs that were there. You had a hard time getting outside with them there; however, it was cold and we did not go to sit outside. The complimentary full buffet breakfast... More

When we checked in asked front desk employee if the Buckingham's Restaurant would be open this evening and on New Year's Eve. She didn't know and was not concerned about it. You would think with all the advertising that is done at the Motel for the Restaurant employees would be informed about it's operating hours, etc. Our last day which... More

Thank you so much for your review. We apologize for the confusion regarding the restaurant and breakfast. Your stay was at a time when we go from a very busy season to a very slow season literally overnight, which is partly why there was some confusion. Regardless, we are sorry you were misinformed. We hope you will stay with us... More

By far our favorite place to stay in Branson. Love the comfy beds! Seriously, great beds! Older decor and hotel but usually nice, clean, and well kept. We received a voucher for free breakfast every day at Sadie's Sideboard next door to the hotel which was a nice surprise! Nothing fancy but a solid breakfast. Only minor issue was that... More
