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.

As usual we were not disappointed. Our room was near the indoor pool, which was our request. The front desk staff were quick with check-in as well as check-out. All employees were friendly. We arrived on Saturday for labor day weekend and they were full. Even being full everyone seemed very happy to have us. Breakfast was good nothing unusual,... More

The room did not look like the one that I had reserved. Our patio was next to the pool, which was fine, but no privacy when sitting outside. Pool was cool and had to close the doors to keep breeze from chilling us when we used the pool.

Family reunion and celebration of 70th birthday. The front office was very friendly and accommodating and provided a room with tables and chairs for the birthday party. Motel room was large and clean with a small refrigerator which was nice for leftover birthday cake. Blow dryer, iron, and coffee pot in the room. We used the indoor pool and large... More

Though dated, it is still a charming family owned property. Comfortable beds, decent free breakfast. A decent value for the weekend car cruise when Branson was so busy. Nice indoor pool, and decent outdoor pool.

This was my first visit to Southern Oaks Inn but it will not be my last!! The rooms were very spacious plus had hair dryers, coffee pots, small refrigerators and very reliable Wifi. The "hot" breakfast was really good and you had plenty to choose from!!The location is ideal as it is just a little off the strip but right... More

The location of this hotel is great, it's not right on the strip but within minutes of everything. The indoor pool is excellent! Every staff member we met was very nice and polite, the ladies in the breakfast area were our favorite! The breakfast is ok, no fresh fruit and during busy times it's hard to get to items because...

We stayed 2 nights here, my 2nd time staying here. The rooms are large...lots of floor space for kids to play, we have a 2 year old. Our beds were comfy pillow tops but I know not all the rooms had been updated with these mattresses. These are small queen beds though not the almost king I have at home.... More
