“Great place to stay.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012 via mobile

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this resort. The resort had many activities, was very clean, had a good gym and pool and was close to all the key sites/restaurants. I would highly recommend this resort if you are staying in the Branson area.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2012

Good location just off the strip in Branson. The place was clean. The price was (I thought) less than what I usually pay at Marriottt properties (under $120 out the door including taxes with AAA discount).

Room was spacious for the 2 of us. Family oriented vacation club. They had a nice little basketball court, and a wiffle ball field.

Only problem we had was there were some loud kids on the floor and the noise came right through the walls. I don't know how you would avoid that. Their parents should have known there were other people nearby trying to get some sleep. Oh well.

No restaurant or breakfast available on the premises.

We stayed at this Marriott property for three nights in September. The facility was lovely (even though it rained the entire time we were there) and the one bedroom unit was spacious and comfortable. We generally prefer to stay at full service facilities but for this trip, the vacation club was fine. I wish we could have enjoyed the pool area but the weather did not cooperate so perhaps another time.

Best room weve stayed at in Branson. Stayed in a two room two bathroom villa. Fully equipped kitchen with laundry and liked that they provided soap for washer, dish washer and dish soap. Great room very well decorated and very comfortable with large balcony. Had numerous amenities for kids (pools, pool table, ping pong, shuffle board and many more. You can find staff very nice. You can find a cheaper room but I will pay xtra to stay here on the next visit!! Beds were great zero complaints.

You have lots of choices but I always go with a known provider. This Marriott facility is not the cheapest but it is definitely the best value. It is centrally located but it is on the Green Mountain Drive parallel road.

Having stayed at other Marriott Vacation resorts, the Willow Ridge Lodge was everything one cold ask for & more! The staff was very accomodating! We were there for 3 nights...stayed in Building 5 in a 2 br villa! It was very spacious! Beds were comfy! We had a balcony and it was nice to sit out there in the morning. The temps were perfect while we were there! We arrived on a Monday & went to the Marriott Celebration at Pointe Royal! - that was a great event..dinner for 9.50 and there were over a dozen entertainers that came in to give you a little teaser of their shows. I really enjoyed it! The wine & cheese social on Wednesday evening was fantastic with great entertainment! We did water aerobics every morning at 9am & the instructors were very friendly! The outdoor pools had closed for the season but the outdoor whirlpools were still working. The fire pit was a hit one evening!! Went Ziplining..what a blast!..totally recommend it! and saw two shows- Oak Ridge Boys....great show & SIX- a must see. SIX perfomed at the Mickey Gilley theatre- about 3 minutes from the lodge. This resort is centrally located in town & you would never know that you are in the heart of Branson as it is tucked away and very secluded! I will be back..hopefully, in the summer time!! There are so many things to do at the resort!! It was a wonderful 4 day getaway!

Room Tip: request a higher floor for a better view- we were on 3 & there were 5 floors in our building.

The grounds, building, rooms, etc. were all very clean and up to date. Wished we had come before they closed the large pool but our two year old enjoyed the indoor pool and the smaller outdoor pool.

I can see why families like to come here. They have programs for the kids to participate in as well as adults. Some activities include a fee. There's an arts and crafts room for kids, a game room, games for families to check out as well as dvds you can rent from the front desk and watch in your room.

Good location!

Just a mention to travelers who like a breakfast with their stay: this property does not provide a breakfast.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the center of the property overlooking the pool area on top floor have the nicest views...
