This is a nice, clean motel. My only complaint was the price. I've stayed in many similar motels in the Branson area for about $30 night less that included breakfast. But, it's all about supply and demand. If you want a motel near the Shut Ins and Elephant Rocks, this is a great location. I had no complaints about the... More

We are so happy with our stay at Fort Davidson Hotel! The place is very clean and friendly. The pool is fabulous. The location is great. The area is very nice and kid-friendly too. There are places to eat. Dollar General and Walgreens are just 5 minutes away. It was altogether a very nice experience. I would highly recommend this... More

At first glance there isn't much to look at. This reminds me of the hotels I stayed at with my parents in the 70s and 80s. Pull car right up to door. Old metal hotel key with room number attached. However we stayed here based on trip advisors ratings and I concur, This is a very nice and clean place... More

I came down to the area with a couple buddies for the Missouri Whitewater Championship Races. Don't let the "older" facade of the motel fool you! The rooms are updated and our room was one of the cleaner motel rooms I've ever stayed in! I even left my favorite Patagonia stocking cap behind; called back (as I live 3 hours... More

This was our first trip to the South East part of Missouri. I chose this place because of its proximity to Elephant Rocks, Fort Davidson, and Johnson Shut-In. I called and made my reservations, and was impressed with the clerk. She made my reservation, and was looking forward to our arrival. Our room was perfect, modern and up to date... More

The hotel was more than we hoped for. Big, clean, comfortable rooms. We had enough room to hang out and visit with family we meet here. No breakfast but the resturant next door had good food and great pie. We've found our new place to stay when visiting Elephant Rock and Johnson shut inn state parks. 😃

This hotel was a nice surprise. From the outside it doesn't look like much, but the rooms were fairly recently remodeled and provided a nice nights stay. The price is ok for the area, although it doesn't come with breakfast so you have to factor that in. There are a lot of beautiful state parks in the area and it... More

An old style roadside motel with outside entry. Nothing spectacular but it is clean and the staff is very friendly and helpful. Motel is right across road from the Civil War site, an easy walk. There is a nice restaurant next door, walk across the parking lot. We spent two nights here and would stay again.

Stayed on bike trip to see all the local sites.Nice family ran motel. Rooms are dated but very clean and comfortable. Best water pressure we've ever had in a motel. Reserved parking right in front of your door. Good restaurant right next door. Will stay again if ever in the area.
