“Disappointed Stay”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed 3 days ago NEW

This was not our first choice but, the property looked like it had potential to suit our three day stay in Branson. After checking in we walked around the property and were really disappointed with the so called "mini golf course". Everything in the "theater" building was out of service, locked up and smelled musty. Then we walked through the "Splashatorium" and were disappointed with the total lack of available seating. The refreshment stand had canned soda available for $2.00 each and a couple of equally high priced snack items. I would not recommend this property unless you are looking for a 2 star experience.

Room Tip: This property is maybe a 2 star location at best!

Thank you for your review.
We are sorry you did not see the value of your stay with us.
The mini golf course is a nine hole course free to our guests. It gets a lot of use and our guests really seem to enjoy it, especially considering it is free.
Our 2,200 seat theatre hosts many special events through the year, but this summer we are not presenting any shows. We are sorry there was not an event during your stay to enjoy.
The Splash-A-Torium, our indoor/outdoor water attraction is a very busy place during the summer. Families love to spend the day taking advantage of all of the fun our 117 ft. slide and Splash toys offer. They also take advantage of the convenience that our onsite restaurant and lounge offers in the way of food and drink poolside service. We apologize if during your stay the Splash-A Torium was too busy for your liking.
We believe that we offer guests tremendous value: from the Splash-A-Torium, to our planned, daily activities and activities center, game room, state of the art fitness center, newly renovated rooms and hotel, onsite, full service restaurant with room and poolside service, free mini golf, and the beautiful, natural surroundings, most of our guests appreciate all there is to do, and the quality of the resort and how that goes well beyond your average stay anywhere else. But what we are most proud of is the passion our associates have to provide gracious service to our guests. We sincerely regret that we did not meet your expectations, as our desire is to always meet and exceed the expectations of our guests.

This is the second year that I have stayed here. The grandchildren requested that we stay here again, and I was so glad that they did. You will not find a better place to stay then the Welk Resort in Branson. This resorts main priority is to take care of there cutomers, from check in to check out. I could not imagine staying anywhere else but here.

So glad we chose this hotel. The hotel is very nice. The "splashatorium" was super fun for the kids, although a little crowded (we went July 4th weekend so it was to be expected). The staff was friendly, rooms were clean. Resort was close to everything yet far enough away to not be in the high traffic areas. If you stay here, try Danna's BBQ (right by the resort), steer clear from the Hibachi place in the broken down stripmall across from the resort. Moonlight beach is a cool area a mile or so away that has rock/sand beaches on Table Rock lake. Very fun and was better than the crowd at the pool. All that being said, I do agree the rooms are VERY tight (small) for our family of 4. The beds are NOT comfortable. Although, I would stay here again just wish they had softer beds.

Room Tip: If you have kids, choose the main floor. It makes the splash-a-torium trips easier!

We were in a Branson with our nine year old granddaughter and she loved the water park area. We liked it too because we could bring in whatever food and drink we wanted and were able to relax while she played. It didn't hurt that the weather was perfect. There were other things to do on the property that I'm sure she would have loved but we just weren't there long enough. The location was great. The rooms were okay but extremely small. Ours overlooked the parking lot so nothing special. They were clean and obviously newly renovated so that was a plus. The staff was awesome! Everyone was very friendly and very eager to make our stay special. The only real negative was the noise level. The walls were thin and we could hear the people above us. The noise level coming from the hallways was irritating but the hotel staff couldn't really control that. Lots of people having a good time!

Room Tip: Request a room that doesn't overlook the parking lot! Staying on the top floor might eliminate...

The Welk Resort in Branson was recommended to us by a friend and we couldn't have been any more pleased. It was easy to locate and close to other Branson activities, yet far enough out to gain some peace and quite from all the busyness of the strip. The staff was very helpful and friendly. The kids loved the water park and pool. The rooms were nice and clean. We would definitely come stay again.

The staff was very friendly. We stayed in a room with two queen beds. The rooms were nice and relaxing. The kids had a blast at the water park and the pool. The hotel had easy access to the Branson activities.

The Welk Resort was chosen after a careful evaluation of several other locations. The rooms were clean and the staff was top notch. We had 54 people at our reunion, more came than expected, we are confident because of the location at Branson. They came from 8 states plus one came from England just for this reunion. The rooms have been renovated and are quite nice and comfortable. The hospitality room that was furnished was nice but didn't get renovated before our reunion so will be even better since it is being renovated this week. The breakfast was as good as you could want unless you need a short order cook to fry your eggs or make an omelet. There was a variety of choices and all were good. The activities; pool with waterslide, miniature golf, pool table, plus other games kept all ages active and having fun. I have already recommended the Welk Resort to some of my friends for a great place to hold their family reunion.
