We had our first stay at Clarion in Branson over the New Years weekend. We hadnt visited Branson in about three years, but we hadnt forgotten how terrible the traffic was. Fortunately, on this trip, not many folks were in Branson so the traffic was next to none and we were able to get everywhere quite easily with no delays or problems.
Clarion is smack dab in the middle of the strip. Great location and super easy to get to. Across the street from The Osmond's theater.
We tried to upgrade to a family suite upon check in, but they were booked up. We still got a very nice room facing the strip on the 4th floor. All the staff we encountered from the front desk to the breakfast room to the maids were all helpful and friendly. No complaints there!
On Saturday morning we got up early and went to the free breakfast. It was a very nice room and everything was clean and organized. Waffles, Oatmeal, Bagels, Toast, Cereal, Boiled Eggs, donuts and coffee and juice. Plenty for my family to get their day started.
We headed out to take our kids that morning to the usual Branson attractions of miniature golf, go carts, etc... We had lunch at Ruby Tuesdays (BEST salad bar) and headed back to the room. It was around 1:30 in the afternoon and our room had still not been serviced. We saw the maids in the hallway and decided they were headed for our room next so we took the kids to the pool and were gone about an hour and a half. When we returned the room had still not been cleaned and the maids were no where to be found. We had tickets for the Dixie Stampede early show at 5:30 so we showered, dressed and left. We returned around 9:00 p.m. and our room STILL had not been cleaned. We thought this was very odd, but we were leaving the next morning and decided to let it go as a "fluke" and not contact management about it. In hindsight, we probably should have.
No other complaints......oh........and the shower was incredible!! I have very long hair and water pressure is key for me. The water is very soft by the way, but the shower head was great!
We will try the Clarion again in the future!
