I was going to be in Branson with friends who have small children (our primary activity would be visiting Silver Dollar City), and we selected Green Gables Inn largely on the basis of positive reviews here and on other sites. Believe it or not, the reviews were accurate: The place is not fancy, but it is clean, has all the basics including a no-frills breakfast, has an outdoor pool, and the staff is friendly and helpful (it's literally a mom-and-pop business). I was a little put off by the open Bible in each room, but otherwise, no complaints. And how's this for old-school: you actually get a key to your room, not a key card.
Green Gables is in a row of motels and hotels just off the strip (the turn-off is at McDonald's on 76), so it's centrally located but a bit removed from all the hustle and bustle. It's across the street from a Panera (we ate there twice), and down the road from an Italian restaurant that was Olive Garden-esque (we ate there, too).
Note there's not even shampoo in the rooms, so don't even wonder if there are in-room fridges or microwaves or a place to do laundry (no, no and no). But we had ice chests, which worked fine for anything we wanted to refrigerate, and there's a microwave in the breakfast room. (Breakfast is toast, bagels, doughnuts, juice and coffee.)
I'd definitely stay at this motel again. It reminds me of the places I stayed at in Branson as a kid.
