“Great hotel, great locaton”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2012

We recently spent two nights in a two-bedroom villa. The suite was seriously bigger than our first apartment. We were very happy with the rooms, full kitchen, and living/dining space. My parents were in a studio suite across the hall, which had a queen bed and was pretty small.

The hotel property has many activities, and even though we were there in the winter, we still enjoyed the game room, indoor pool, and shuffleboard court. The staff was friendly and easily granted my request for a late check-out. The location is just off the strip, with easy access to many highlights of Branson with minimal driving on Hwy 76. We would definitely stay here again!

Nice comfortable rooms, LOTS of activities for children and adults. No pushy timeshare salespeople, unlike another resort I stayed at this month. Very helpful front desk staff, and activities staff. Lovely grounds, and updated kitchens with glass topped stove etc. Flat screen TVs.

Room Tip: Top floor rooms are the quietest.

This was our first trip to Branson and we were not disappointed when we reached our resort. Our room was ready about 4 hours early, which was nice after flying all morning. We went into our room and found the accommodations modern, clean and spacious. Both bedrooms were large and the kitchen, dining and living rooms were also spacious. The indoor pool and hot tub were nice and a few times, we felt adventurous and enjoyed the outdoor hot tub in 50 degree weather. We have stayed in various resorts and the activities that the Marriott had surpassed them all. We enjoyed movie night with really good popcorn, karaoke and a live performance by Denny Leary and Sheila Renee. The front desk was accommodating, professional and always helpful. We plan to come back to Branson and stay here again.

Room Tip: We were on the second floor and it was nice because we enjoyed a balcony and a nice view.

This is the second time we stayed here as Timeshare owners that used our points to stay. The front desk staff is very friendly and helpful. We needed to print e-mails and fax documents and they were most accommodating including the concierge giving up her computer while I pulled the email. The bathroom could use a little fix up around the commode but other than that it was great.

Room Tip: We prefer a high floor as the walls are a little "thin"

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.

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.
