The room was extremely nice, although we had to pick up someones elses empty juice boxes off the floor. The staff was nice although our air conditioning went out in our room and had a huge water puddle in our bathroom and the staff told me that they would send someone right up to fix it but after an hour of waiting I called back and they said that it would have to wait til in the morning and I had to clean the mess up myself unless I wanted to pay for housekeeping to come up and clean it. The room stayed around 85 degrees that night a little to hot for me to sleep well so it was a good thing that the weather got cooler because they never sent anyone to fix it. We stayed at the lodges and you get charged for anything you use including toilet tissue after the first role it just seemed a bit much after how much we payed to stay there.

This was our 2nd stay at this location. First time was a just my spouse & I in October 2008 while this time we brought our children along. Stayed in the larger one bedroom unit both times. Since this part of the resort is still in the early development stage, there is only one waterpark & 4 buildings in addition to the hotel on site. We all enjoyed the waterpark very much. It is set up well for children of all ages as well as adults. My children did wish there was an area for water volleyball or water polo but maybe that is in the future plans. We also tried out the mini golf course on site. Fun course but in need of updates/repairs. From what I have read elsewhere, this issue is being addressed. Our lodge was quite large & comfortable with a very northwoods feel. The entire staff was very helpful. Since it is a timeshare resort, we sat thru the sales presentation with Steve. He really gave us some wonderful ideas of what to do in the area that were exactly what we were looking for (we are not into the various shows offered on the strip). On our 2nd trip back, he took the time to give us more ideas so we didn't have to do the same things twice. I am sure we will stay at this location again.

I don't know about the regular hotel at Welk Resort but I can tell you the lodge suites are superb! Incredibly comfortable bed with pillows like you would have at home. Clean, modern design with the log cabin touch. Beautiful baths with jacuzzi tubs, a kitchen and washer/dryer in unit too! I absolutely loved the room and the resort. The restaurant is not so great but it is the closest thing around so for breakfast it is fine if you don't prepare breakfast in the room. Service was terrific. The fastest show tickets I have ever seen, like in 3 minutes or less we had tickets to several shows. Great pool for the kids with mini indoor waterpark.

The resort was nice and very new. The only problem we had was we reserved a large one bedroom with a large kitchen, and got a small one bedroom with a small kitchen. Other than this it was a good stay.

We stayed at trhe Lodges section of the Welk Resort as a trade in with the time share we own in Orlando. Upon arrival on Saturday, we were asked if we would like to be upgraded to a larger suite on the upcoming Monday....free. Apparently it helped them as they needed the smaller suite for a 2 person stay (we had 2 adults and three small children) and of course it really helped us having the extra space. The rooms were immaculate, the spashatorium/pool was perfect for kids and adults and the mini golf course was a lot of fun. Highly recommend this resort, especially if you have children.

We had the larrger 1 bedroom luxury unit. Everything was perfect. The kitchen was super clean and up to date. Furnishings throughout were wonderful. And the favorite feature for all in our family was the triple head shower.

Property ammenities were also wonderful with the waterpark for kids including the slide and fountains. Onsite minature golf made for some great family time at the end of the day along with the fun playground.

Property is on west side of Branson close to the Fish Hatchery and the dam.....which means you are not in the craziness of Branson Central or the constant slow traffic. It was very much to our liking and reccommend it highly to everyone.

After canceling a trip to Florida we had to scramble to find a place closer to home for a family vacation. This was perfect. With three young kids, it is hard for us to enjoy even the largest hotel rooms. These lodges were great. We had a private bedroom that was much bigger than I expected, a fireplace, jacuzzi, full kitchen and a living room with a pull out couch. It was perfect, kids in one room, adults, in the other. The units are very nice with great furniture, a fully equipped kitchen and comfortable beds. We had a nice deck as well. At the hotel, there is also a great pool with a water slide and sprikler park. This kept our kids busy for an entire day. There is also a free mini golf course that is basic, but free, and our kids loved it.

All in all, for the price, we would definitely stay here again. The staff was very friendly and even upgraded our room from the small unit with a mini kitchen to the larger one with a full kitchen for free. If you have kids, want a nice place to stay, and need more room than the typical hotel room offers, try this.
