“Never again, under any circumstance!!!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2014

First room 106 a/c didn't work. Second room 107 several of the lamp lighting didn't work. The tiny fridge wouldn't keep food cool or cold. There was a micro coffeepot without any insulated cups or coffee or condiments. The sink was so rusted, that it had jagged edges. The tub faucets and showerhead were also rusty. The rooms cleanliness was horrible. The bathtub had visible soap on it. The board that had been placed on the wall in order to install a toilet paper roll had dirt and grime all along the top edge. The head of the bed and around the nightstand on the floor had not seen a vacuum or broom in quite sometime. Specifically requested down stair amenity access due to handicap and ice machine was on second floor. After trekking up there, the machine was broken. Went to office, manager used his hands to get me 15 cubes of ice from his fridge in the apt near office, said that is all I could have, he needed to save some for other customers. Refused refund, manager was horribly rude and hard to understand, his favorite comment was, "not my fault, cant do anything about it!" I took photos!!!! Cheap price is NOT worth the aggravation or rudeness! Pay more and book somewhere else. 3 floors of rooms, approx. 22 parking spaces with visibility safety.

Room Tip: Do not chose a room. Run far far away!

For the price, I was very pleasantly surprised to find the rooms included a coffee maker, fridge and microwave! Fairly clean, pleasant-smelling soaps and shampoos and decent beds. All and all, a good value for the money.

A great Inn to stay at. Very clean, the owner and his staff are very friendly, helpful and polite. The extended continental breakfast was good, too. It was great for the whole family and great for the couples on the go. Very affordable and the perfect location. We can walk to Mickey Gilley's Theater, Hughes Brothers, The Dutton's, the Track Family Fun Park, Titanic, Clay Coopers, Ruby Tuesday's, Ripley's...and more....I recommend this property.

Room Tip: They have triple bed rooms and double kings...

I have stayed at this facility several times, have always been treated very very well. It is just off 76, quiet and safe. The rooms have always been clean and neat. Coffee and continental breakfast in lobby. There is a small refrigerator in the room.
Please give them a try...for the money and location, I don't think you'll find nicer folks to serve you!

We arrived later in the evening without a reservation and were greeted warmly and provided a modest but clean room. The manager offered to allow us to park our motorcycle under the canopy so it could be more easily seen overnight and covered. Very thoughtful! The room was sufficient with a clean comfortable bed, plenty of hot water, close access to the strip and sites, but in a quiet location. If you want luxury go elsewhere and pay more. This Inn provided us needed accommodations (a safe, quiet, clean place to sleep and a hot shower) while allowing us to spend our money on the fun things we wanted to do while visiting the area! We will go back on our next visit to Branson!!

This location is off the strip on a side street which is not so busy. The price off seasons was
$42 and is near several other low priced hotels. Despite the price the room was not clean (hair, dead insects), there is no clock in the room, the faucet sprayed water all over the vanity and the am breakfast was not at all what we would expect.

We appreciated the hc parking space right out side our door and double beds.
