Very nice resort located close to Hwy 76 yet quiet and peaceful. Kitchen was well equipped, plenty of dishwasher soap and paper towels and trash bags. When we checked in I asked for a room on a top floor and the clerk was very helpful and found me just what I wanted. We stayed in a 2 bedroom unit on the 5th floor in building 5 which overlooked the pool and clubhouse. It was cold and snowy the week we were there so we did not use the pool. They offered plenty of activities for a family but we did not participate. The people at the front desk we helpful and friendly and kept us informed about changes in the activites due to weather but no one approached us about the Marriott Vacation Club program. The lobby was very cozy with a huge fireplace. My only complaint is that the Marketplace was way too small with very limited items. When my husband went there to buy some potato chips the only choice was not what he wanted but the lady at the front desk actually gave him some of her chips. Now that is service! We parked very close to our unit and the elevator was quick. I would definately recommend this resort. Overall I have always enjoyed staying at the Marriott Vacation Club resorts and have never been disappointed.

Room Tip: I read the previous reviews before I went and they were very accurate and helpful. I think the top...

Marriott's Willow Ridge Lodge is a great place for the whole family to stay when visiting Branson. The one or two bedroom condo style accommodations provide plenty of room for everyone, plus amenities which provide comfort and convenience for longer stays. It’s located in the center of Branson, without being on the 76 strip. In our two recent visits to Willow Ridge Lodge, my family stayed in both the one bedroom and the two bedroom suites. Both layouts were comfortable with the larger 2 bedroom/ 2 bathroom unit having a surprisingly large second bedroom containing two queen size beds. The kitchens are spacious and well equipped with full size appliances, including a clothes washer/dryer. Families should plan on bringing at least breakfast provisions; because there is no on-site restaurant or dining amenities other than a small pantry shop in the main office. The quality and condition of the furnishings and decoration is very good but not over the top in terms of Ozark woodsy style. The balcony is deep, and furnished with a patio table and chairs. Our two bedroom suite had a “resort view” overlooking the pool which could be a busy place in the summer season. The staff at the front desk was friendly and helpful, and there is a concierge on duty from 9 to 5 for help with touring and attractions. The resort publishes a schedule of daily activities for guests of all ages. One of the nice things here is that there are no high pressure time share promotions on the guests of this Marriott Vacation Club. My only negative impression is the early 10 AM check-out time. That’s a little early for a family like mine that packs a ton of stuff including food, toys and outdoor gear. Overall, Willow Ridge Lodge is a very pleasant place to stay when visiting Branson and one that will remain our top choice of accommodations for return visits.

Room Tip: Top floor suites don't have anyone walking around the floors above you.

Marriott Willow Ridge Lodge beats all the others in Branson. In a city that has way too many lodging choices, you need look no further than Willow Ridge Lodge. You can choose from a standard room, or upgrade to a one or two bedroom with full kitchen with washer and dryer, The pools are the best in town. In summer is a deluxe pool and in winter is an indoor full-size olympic pool. It is just a few blocks off the hectic 76 Country Music Blvd traffic, but easy access to all shows and attractions. The staff will meet all needs, it has full security on duty 24/7 and has free popocorn and snacks in the lobby. What's not to like! Choose this when in Branson; you will thank me later.

Room Tip: Ask for pool view room.

This is a nice resort. It is the second time we have stayed here. We stayed a week with our timeshare, so I have no opinion on the cost. There are some fun activities here for the kids. My boys enjoyed the pool. S'more night is a must! My boys just filled up on the sugary treats (it's spring break, let them have fun!). The resort is in town but is secluded and surrounded by trees. You'd never know you was in town. This is probably the best condo to stay in at Branson. We've stayed in about 3 other time share resorts here in Branson and this is the best.

Willow Ridge has excellent accommodations. It is not new, but it is well-maintained. The outdoor swimming pool was closed because it was still on the fringe of winter, but it looks like it would be a wonderful place for children and adults alike. The activities were numerous. There is ping pong, pool, video games, a children's room, and even an outdoor slide for small children.
Our wives took advantage of water aerobics most mornings. There were activities for children and adults. We didn't take part in many of them, but we enjoyed the wine and cheese receptions on the nights they had those. One of the receptions featured a talented classical guitarist.

The staff was knowledgeable and helpful. We had spent a long weekend there about five years ago, but we will plan to go back sooner this time.

Room Tip: We found the two-bedroom worked even for six adults. It had one bedroom with a king and another with...

Our experience was wonderful. The staff was helpful and there were lots of activities for families. The only negative was there was no restaurant or room service on the property. The rooms were clean and there was a washer and dryer in the villa where we stayed.
