Wow! I've reviewed several of the recent reviews, and am really surprised at their negativity! Had to find lodging for the weekend, so I would be able to work with the balloons during the Branson Balloon Festival. I found this motel to be the least expensive available on trivago.com, a few days before actually making my reservations. I called the... More

Stopped here at the last minute. This was one of the nicer looking budget motels close to Highway 76, but not on it. Price was definitely reasonable for a weekend night in this tourist-oriented location. Price quoted was good, then I got a military discount, too. There are two king, "penthouse" rooms on the 4th floor. I had room 401.... More

The only good thing I can say is they gave us a refund without arguing. This was possibly the worst room I've ever seen. Neither lamp in the "King Suite" worked, what looked like burn holes in the sheets, hair in the shower, stain on the pillow case and a gap under the room door where bugs could literally crawl...

Dear Valued Guest, We understand that you lived close by and often people change their mind after making reservations. We returned entire non refundable deposit on a prepaid reservation as a principle that "It's better to keep room empty than keep guest unhappy and make them stay". Thanks for taking time expressing your views. It always helps us to make... More

The room was clean, but it had a bad odor upon entering. I didn't like the fact the room didn't have all the towels stocked. A plus was the frig, but there wasn't a microwave. The 10 am checkout time was a definite negative for me. I stay in a lot of motels and haven' t had to checkout of... More

My husband and I booked this room based on affordability, trying to save money for the attractions in the area. Unfortunately, this was not the most attractive part of our anniversary. We had a room on the third floor which was not horrible, but then to part close to the room was an interesting deal. We checked in and the... More

I booked this on bookit.com, I actually clicked the wrong hotel and wanted to cancel when I noticed my mistake. Read the print! $55 cancellation fee. Ok, so I made the mistake so we went.

It appears from the review guest booked the hotel by mistake. They did not call to cancel after the booking or upon check in inform the Front desk about the issues so alternate arrangements could have been make. They were allowed an early check-in and guest stayed for more than three hours and used the room during all this time.... More

First room 106 a/c didn't work. Second room 107 several of the lamp lighting didn't work. The tiny fridge wouldn't keep food cool or cold. There was a micro coffeepot without any insulated cups or coffee or condiments. The sink was so rusted, that it had jagged edges. The tub faucets and showerhead were also rusty.

For the price, I was very pleasantly surprised to find the rooms included a coffee maker, fridge and microwave! Fairly clean, pleasant-smelling soaps and shampoos and decent beds. All and all, a good value for the money.

A great Inn to stay at. Very clean, the owner and his staff are very friendly, helpful and polite. The extended continental breakfast was good, too. It was great for the whole family and great for the couples on the go. Very affordable and the perfect location. We can walk to Mickey Gilley's Theater, Hughes Brothers, The Dutton's, the Track...
