“A great place for a reunion!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 4 days ago NEW

The Welk has hosted military reunions for us several times, and we always love coming back. They have everything you need right on the property! They set up the "Vietnam Wall" for our group, handled all the details of our banquet, and planned our welcome night "whole hog" barbecue. Lots of activities available for the kiddos too, from the Splash-a-torium with pools, slides and whirlpools to a putt-putt golf course at the hotel (for no extra cost!) it offers a great value for people who bring the kids along. You get the whole vacation for just the price of the room! They have also remodeled, and the rooms are very nice, comfy beds too. The Welk is located away from the strip, so you don't have all the heavy traffic, and much more peace and quiet. Love this place!

My family and I recently took a mini vacation to the Welk Resort in Branson. We couldn't be happier! From the time we walked in the door, the staff were very friendly and helpful. The rooms were very nice and clean. The beds were very comfortable. The kids absolutely loved the splashatorium! We ordered food from the poolside service, and the burger was great! This is one of the best trips I have had in a long time. In fact, we have already booked for next year! This time we are staying a little longer, to enjoy!!

We went as a family and had a great time. Great pool area, attentive staff, nice rooms and close to all the other Branson activities. This is a 3/4 star type facility and the pool area is nice but do not expect a great wolf lodge type pool area- it's much smaller and there are no posted lifeguards.
No permanent bar at the pool area but there are times when for and adult beverages are present for purchase. Additionally there are attentive bar staff that roll through the pool area for bar and food orders for most of the day and evening hours. Pool area is separate from the hotel and you have to cross the parking lot to get to it.
There's a concierge service in the lobby with all the answers regarding activities and restaurants.
It is a timeshare property so - yeah it's a timeshare property.
We liked it, the kids loved it and Branson is Branson so if you're going to Branson this is a great place to stay.

What a great place to throw a family reunion. Everyone is so friendly and helpful. We had a great hospitality room, where everyone meet every night to share stories, play bingo, or just talk. The pool was wonderful, breakfast was delicious, and service was amazing. Rooms were clean, and the resort has so many amenities for kids we didn't have to worry about how to keep them occupied. When I come back to Branson I'll stay here every time.

We stayed at The Welk Resort for the 1st time, and could not have been happier! The rooms were great, comfortable beds. The staff at the hotel and the Splashatorium were super friendly and accommodating. We really appreciated the poolside service...the food was really good.
Also appreciated that the pool was open until 10:00 pm. We will definitely be back!

Room Tip: Rooms near lobby can get a little noisy.

This was a last Minute "let's go for the weekend" kinda trip. With Summer in full swing This place has one of the best Pool/Splash grounds around. With a indoor/outdoor pool and a BIG indoor slid for the older kids and young at heart older people one would think they had it all; but this place also has a "Splash area" for the younger kids with all kinds of things to play in and get wet. I also would suggest the "ALL YOU CAN EAT" breakfast bar. The food was real good but the Staff was over the Top helpful with any and all you breakfast needs. Thank you for a FUN Filled weekend that my family will never forget!

Room Tip: The View from the back of the hotel is a good one!

We certainly were glad to hear your experience at our resort. Thank you for such a nice review. Weekend getaways are a fantastic way to enjoy Branson, and we love to see families “sneak” a trip in when they can. Fall is a beautiful time to enjoy the Ozarks for a quick weekend trip, so we hope you will come and visit this Fall. Thanks again for your review.

I started early to organize a family reunion of 30+ people at the Welk, little did I know that it would turn into a year-long headache. The Sales group at this Welk Resort is disorganized and dishonest. Even after having an official contract signed, they did not think twice about trying to cancel our stay due to an oversight on their part. After many phone calls, we were able to keep our reservations, but slowly, they started to change things such as stay length, room reservations, conference rooms, banquets. I had to resend them many of their own emails to remind them of what was agreed upon earlier.
At check-in...nothing was ready. The block of rooms originally promised were no longer all together. The original conference room that was promised, was not given. The original banquets planned were changed. In confronting the management on all these issues, they always gave the same excuses..."so sorry, but tell us what we can do to make it better". Why do I have to fight for everything that they originally promised and told me we could have? If something is not possible, don't tell people they can have it.
Restaurant/food is like a Chuck-O-Rama style place and quality, nothing spectacular...smells old and musty too when you enter. Staff/servers very friendly.
Hotel rooms were OK, AC not very strong and cycled on-and-off. Found several bugs in the rooms too.
Pool was the saving point of this trip. Lots of fun.
Unfortunately, we will not be coming back here and can not leave a positive reference for people who ask us about our stay here, too much effort needed to enjoy a vacation trip - and not knowing what to expect is too challenging to plan around when you have a large group coming.

Room Tip: Get a room on the 1st or 2nd floor. You can then use stairs to get around - the elevators are very...

Thank you for your review. As the myriad of family reunions and other groups that we host throughout the year can attest, we are in the business of providing an experience worth repeating, and one that groups will cherish for a lifetime. Learning about the challenges with your group was a supreme disappointment to us and one that we hope you understand demands our sincerest apology. We wish we could have provided more acceptable answers to these issues prior to your arrival. We did receive a lot of positive feedback from your group but we apologize for your disappointments as the group leader. There is not any information we could provide that would act as an excuse for what happened during your stay. Again, please accept our sincerest apology.
