This weekend, my husband, my son, and I stayed at Boxcar Willie for the 2nd time. It was very clean, as it was when we stayed there before. The beds were comfortable. The breakfast was nice. There were donuts, bagels, cereal, oatmeal, and biscuits and gravy available. The breakfast attendant was very nice and helpful! The only thing I would... More

We stayed at this hotel in order to attend the Polar Express Train Ride in Branson, Mo. It was a decent drive on the yellow route from our hotel to Downtown Branson. It was also in close proximity to everything else we wanted to do. The hotel staff was extremely friendly and helped us map out our journey. The rooms... More

I will start with a disclaimer. I am in the travel industry but have no affiliation with this property. I had heard questionable reviews but I was on a budget. The rooms are furnished tastefully. The bedding was comfortable. The room was clean. Some cleaning in public areas might be needed but minor. The pool area is a big plus.... More

The price is right-staff is friendly-room is clean-bed is comfy-staff has much info about shows and discount tickets-quiet area-just off the busy strip and close to many shows, restaurants and shopping-we have stayed here before and we will stay here again.

We vacationed in Branson and stayed at the Boxcar Willies hotel. The hotel was very nice, except for the big spider in my room (he's deceased now). We saw several shows. Our favorite was the Grand Jubilee. The Dixie Stampede was a good show but we didn't know we would be eating all our dinner with our fingers (roasted Cornish... More

The staff was very nice and went out of their way to be helpful. The staff made sure that we had the adjoining room requested and always welcomed us with a smile and friendly greeting. We have stayed here for three different vacations and it is hard to believe but our stay was better each and every time. The hotel... More

We drove up from Texas to meet my parents for a Branson getaway. Originally from Missouri, we understand what to expect with a majority of Branson hotels. This one is better than most in all but a couple areas. The hotel itself is far enough off of the strip that you don't get the weekend noise and commotion that you... More

We had the pleasure of staying at Boxcar Willie's Inn on October 8-9-10, 2013. We were fortunate to stay in their suite. This "old" inn has been completely renovated. The carpets look new, fireplaces added, and in our room was a huge bathtub with powerful jets. The mattress was a Sealy adjustable which was awesome. They provided breakfast which was... More
