We had never been to Branson before, so my hotel selection came from reviews and pictures. Both the reviews and pictures were accurate; however there are some points to address.
Pros: Room was clean and comfortable (if you like a really hard bed). Because the hotel is new, there were few people staying there. This made for a very quiet environment, and finding a close parking spot was not a problem. The breakfast was good, with a worker continually refilling and making sure everything was fresh. The location is ideal.
Cons: The tiolet was very low flow and over half the time did not flush all the toilet paper. The shower was not replaced from the older hotel; thus, it looks outdated and (most importantly) the shower head is old and WAY TOO low. I am only 5'7" and had to bend my knees to rinse the soap from my hair. The staff was nothing to brag about. Every time we returned to the hotel, at least two staff members were standing/sitting outside the main entrance smoking. I am not a fan of having to walk through a smoky area (not to mention it just looks bad). When I checked in I was told my room faced the pool; however, my room faced a trash bin. In order to face the pool, I would have had to be on the other side of the hallway. I was surprised that the front desk worker didn't know which direction the rooms face.
For my next trip to Branson, I will look for a different hotel simply because I prefer a little more elegance on my vacation. For the price of any hotel, I want the room and it's offerings to be better than what I have at home. The bathroom situation was the biggest downfall.
