Wonderful place to stay with the family. Has large indoor pool. Large room for breakfast. Always friends staff and clean rooms. Highly recommend for families and/or people wanting to stay near the strip but not on it. Love being able to stay at this place in Branson.

Out dated rooms. Had two burns on carpet beds were hard pillows were hard. The toilet was made for a small person. The toilet was also hard to flush. The room smelled like old cleaner. Other than that the people were very nice so that's a plus. Thanks.

The first room was nasty filthy. Even the mattress was very old and stunk. Complained and they gave is a different room. It was much better but still dirty. The bathroom had mold and the ceiling was falling down. The edges all around the room were dirty. This place was on Hotel Impossible and I don't think they learned a... More

Let me first start by saying how nice the staff are. They are very friendly and mean for you to have a nice stay. However, our room had a smell that we couldn't shake. The room was really humid and we personally had to empty the dehumidifier twice (not something I look forward to in a motel). If the air... More

We are on our way home from Branson now...and to say we were disappointed w/Southern Oaks is an understatement. I've done reviews in the past and am always honest. This place is very old/outdated. The tv was a 19" tube model you could barely see. Room had really bad odor, we went and bought air fresheners which helped. The bed... More

Stayed for a weekend at this hotel for an event. Rooms are pretty outdated. Still uses an actual key to open your door. Old TV, remote had no cover over the batteries, could see the hallway under our door, old carpeting, missing grab bar in the shower (just some holes), bed pretty hard, noise from people running upstairs clearly heard...

The price is good but the beds are not comfortable at all. If you have a bad back, skip this hotel. Rooms are dated and the hotel is older, not much modernization has gone on here. You can tell that they don't try to stay up with the times. The breakfast meal is not bad, but overall you can probably... More

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
