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 This place is very old/outdated.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 Rooms are pretty outdated.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

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
