This was our third stay at the Shady Acre Motel. As usual we enjoyed our time here. We asked for and received room #16 which is a kitchenette suite. The room was very clean and all the kitchen utensils, plates, etc. were clean. All the people who work at the motel are friendly and helpful. Laura, the manager, is a... More

We read great reviews for this motel, we were very apprehensive because of the price. But we thought we would give it a shot. We arrived mid afternoon. As suggested in an review we requested a 2nd floor unit with a balcony because we enjoy sitting outside in the evening & thought it was a great suggestion. Upon check in,... More

We are sorry your stay didn't turn out to be as relaxing as you'd hoped. It is true that our office closed at 8:00 p.m. that evening but our emergency numbers are clearly posted on the door of the office. Our manager lives on property and we (the owners) live on property. Our recollection is that we had you back... More

I stayed there on an overnighter when passing thru. The accommodations are as good as some of the 4star hotels I've stayed at. Extremely clean and well maintained. Very cozy and comfortable. Surprisingly rea$onable. I didn't get a midnight visit from the resident ghost so I feel a little cheated there '-) But in all seriousness it a 5star in... More

We stayed at the motel last week during our vacation to Branson. We based choosing this motel on the reviews here and we are very pleased with the decision. Can't say enough good things! Staff was very friendly and helpful. The rooms were VERY clean and we loved having a kitchenette. Bed was very comfortable too. The area was quiet,... More

The room was beautiful. The beds luxurious. The atmosphere was quiet, still and ultimately one of the best motels i have ever stayed in. The first night was pleasant and restful. I would stay there again without hesitation. It was the second night that scared the excrement from my deepest bowels. I awoke at 2:30am to a nose in the... More

Oh my goodness! What a surprise your review is! We've owned this property since the early nineties and built the motel rooms since then. We've had thousands of guests over the years and never heard of any ghostly activity from anyone! We hope to give our guests a memorable experience but this isn't what we had in mind! We certainly...

We spent one night here while traveling home from a vacation where we visited family. We hadn't been to Branson in years and thought we might stop for a night and take in a show. We picked this one based on the reviews in TripAdvisor. It's a small family owned place and everyone on the staff I interacted with was... More

We decided to stay here based off the reviews, and I couldn't be happier! I was hesitant at first because it was so cheap, but don't let that turn you away. The room is literally the CLEANEST I have ever seen in Branson so far. It's a cozy little place where you can walk around and enjoy the scenery. I... More

We stayed in room 9 and were happy with our accommodations. Traveling with two young kids. Maybe not right for everyone, but just right for us. The motel was exactly as the other reviewers described. Quiet, clean and you can't beat the price. Didn't check out the pool, but it looked clean. Nice shady spots to sit outside by a... More

The other reviews on trip advisor were not wrong. We chose it because of them & found out they were spot on. The location is great, away from all the traffic on 76 but close enough to get there quickly. In fact going to SDC from there you miss most traffic because it is coming from the opposite direction! The... More

We stayed here on 08/03/14. Usually we pay about three or more times as much on a hotel in Branson. After reading all the positive reviewes, we decided to give this place a try. Our room was on the second floor, with a private balcony, which I would highly recommend. The room was cleaner than any other hotel room in... More
