Wow! Very nice stay at this cute hotel! I was concerned at first because the price was so low, but once there I was very impressed! Huge room, kitchenette, big towels, lovely landscaping. Bed very comfortable, pretty decore', and you cannot beat the drive there (OMG-georgeous!) Will definitely come back again! Thanks to the owners, we love it!!! :)

Typical mom & pop motel in this neck of the woods. Good price for the motel, but no hair dryer and the room was very small. Ok for one night, but wouldn't want to stay multiple nights. Close to SDC. Far enough from the main strip to have some quiet.

We love Shady Acre...we have stayed there twice before and think it is an excellent place to stay but this time I needed WIFI to be able to use the internet. I could only get a fair strength for service...it was very spotty and at times especially in the evening could hardly do anything on the internet...WIFI really needs to... More

Thank you for staying with us and for your review. We are sorry to hear the internet was sketchy on your last visit with us. We actually just became aware of this today when a guest called the office to inquire about it. I called our internet service provider and they informed us their service was down. They are working...

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
