I thought I had made a good decision about staying here since this place has gotten such great reviews, but I was wrong. I was very disappointed with this place. The rooms are very dated and there is a musty smell. The first night we stayed, we were kept up until 1200 in the morning due to a large number... More

I was very disappointed in this property. The rooms are quite large, but are empty. Early this year we stayed at another inn with a very similar price and it was much better than this one. There were no refrigerators and no microwave in the standard double queen rooms. Just 2 beds, a small 20+ year old tv and a... More

outdoor pool was closed, indoor pool was too small and overly crowded, bed was too hard, felt like a old box springs, room was very out dated and the old tube TV was too tiny! Pillows on bed were so flat, we all had to use three of their pillows to equal a regular size pillow! Only good thing was... More

We stayed here last weekend and it was great! We had the 3 queen room. It was very roomy, clean & the beds were comfortable! There was plenty of pillows & extra blankets! We stayed in "C" building, we were very close to the pool & breakfast! The pool was large & nice & clean! The breakfast was ok, all... More

Visited this weekend, and was so excited to be going back to Southern Oaks Inn! We'd visited here before, some years ago, what a difference a decade makes. Walked in, three people behind the counter, no one spoke to us when we walked up. Sure, the gentleman WAS friendly when he did speak. Got our keys, yes keys, no room... More

This place is not fancy, but the rooms are quite spacious and clean and the service is excellent. For around 50 dollars a night, it cannot be beat. It's located on Shepherd of the Hills Expressway and is easily accessible to my favorite Branson theaters. If you want a good clean room at a bargain, then this is the place... More

We stayed 3 nights at the Southern Oaks as part of a motor coach tour. Our room was clean and there were plenty of towels supplied. The staff was very friendly. We had requested a room with a refrigerator as we had some medication that needed refrigeration. There was no fridge in the room, but after phoning the front desk,... More

We had never stayed on this side of Branson before, but will definitely stay this side from now on. Literally a two minute drive to Golden Corral Restaurant, a few minutes to a grocery store, antique mart, and the stop light to turn back toward Silver Dollar City. The Hot Breakfast was a great selling point and the grandkids loved... More

We waited until we got to Branson to decide a good place to stay. We went on line and found very good rates for Southern Oaks Inn. The Staff was great, quick checkin, nice clean rooms. We could not have asked for more and will continue to go back to Branson and stay at Southern Oaks Inn. C.W.R. Collierville, Tn.
