“Very nice resort”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012

To start with this was an interval exchange. You could not tell we were not owners. The staff was so warm and accommodating. We stayed in building 5 on the 5th floor in a one bedroom. When we opened the door we were amazed at how big the place was. It was more than enough room.
We used all the facilities including the swimming pool and workout room. We even got involved in some of the resort activities.
We recently bought a timeshare with a competitor. If we did not we would have definitely looked at this place. We have decided to look into the Marriott timeshare because of our experience here.

Room Tip: Top floor. No one is above you

Willow Ridge Lodge is a great place to stay! Very comfortable, large and clean condo. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Kitchens are well stocked with all the cooking utensils you need. Located just off the Hwy. 76 strip where you will find all the shows and restaurants, but is very quiet. We recommend Willow Ridge to anyone visiting the Branson area!

Had a great time and will likely return. Lots of great activities planned every day for kids. We got to the campfire with s'mores right after they had shut down - we went to the front desk and they happily brought it back out for our kids - now that is good service! Pool was nice and there were lots of things to do

We stayed last week for one day on a Thursday. We booked the 1 bedroom villa because it was a Marriott Rewards member offer...nice price for a large unit. It was unseasonable warm when we got there so we enjoyed a beverage on the deck in the sun.
Check in/out - very quick, VERY friendly
Room - Nice size, clean
Amenities - didn't use any but looked around. The pool looks like a nice place to hang in the summer.
Right off the main strip
We will be checking this place out again

We spent four nights at Marriott's Willow Ridge Lodge in Branson, MO the first week of December 2012. This is a very slow time for Branson so getting show tickets is a breeze and traffic is light! The Willow Ridge is another wonderful Marriott property. As it was winter, we did not use the pool area but our room looked out onto the interior grounds and plenty of people were grilling, playing shuffleboard, etc. The rooms open onto an open breezeway, not an enclosed hallway. Our 2 bedroom unit, was very nice with a "homey" family feel. The kitchen is well stocked, including a dishwasher (a little noisy so turn it on when you plan to leave the room). The washer/dryer worked well, there were plenty of towels, including pool/beach towels, the beds and living furniture were all very comfortable. The staff is friendly and responded quickly to any requests. The Willow Ridge is located just a few blocks off the main strip of Branson giving easy access to various theaters/activities. I would definitely stay here again!

WE stayed here November 27-30, it was a real nice hotel. It was close to all the shows and restaurants. WE had a one bedroom suite with a kitchen and living area that was nicely equipted. Even though it was part of their vacation villa there was not sale pitch and they had a lot of activities that you could particpate in. Lots of privacy.We would stay there again.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

My wife, daughter, in-laws, and some more extended family stayed here November 21st-25th.
The ladies at the front desk were very nice and knowledgeable of the city and where to eat and drink. They also have a little "convenience shop" in the lobby, which is nice if you forgot aspirin, need a chocolate fix or ran out of beer.
We had two studio suites in which one of them connected to a villa. They all very nice size rooms and had alot of the conveniences of home (plates, silver wear, cleaning supplies, etc..). They were very clean and well kept up.
The pool was nice as well was the hot tub. However, thankfully they also have an indoor childrens "pool". It was like bath water (but cleaner). My daughter (2 years old) absolutely loved it!
Overall, it was a pleasant experience. There was absolutely no traffic noise, but the open air hallways and the thin walls let's you hear everything next door and outside of your room.
