We just returned from our mini vacation to Branson. We stayed at the Grand Country Inn so that our kids could go to the indoor water park.
First off at the motel a lightbulb was burned out. We called the front desk on Tuesday and on Thursday it still hadn't been replaced.
We had no ice bucket in our room, maybe cuz they want you to pay $12.00 to get a fridge put in your room.
As for the waterpark, it is fine for YOUNG children under 7, but then you have to worry about the NAZI lifeguards blowing their whistle everytime you turn around.
I asked Nathan one of the lifeguards( you will know him by his ears) what my daughter had done and he told me she was holding up the lazy river, HELLO, the only ones in the lazy river were my 2 daughters, my son and myself, we weren't being held up.When I went to the manager of the pool and complained he stated " well she was breaking the rules". I told him that we have stayed at the Great Wolf Lodge which is twice the size of this and never had one problem with any of the lifeguards, his response was " well we are $200 a night cheaper then they are". I would much rather pay an additional $200 a night to have a decent experience and not put up with rude employees. I would NEVER stay in this place again.
There is so much other stuff to do in Branson that you don't get your moneys worth out of Splash Country.
Our first night we ate at Baldknobbers, it was overpriced and the food was terrible.
Plantation's $3.99 breakfast was average.
We loved all the stores and got alot of christmas shopping done in June!
Again I do NOT recommend Grand Country Inn , save your money and go to Whitewater where they treat you as a guest
