We just returned from staying @ Deer Run during the Gospel Fest @ Silver Dollar City. Loved the location and that a bus comes from SDC for transport. The rooms were very clean and staff friendly! We enjoyed our stay despite the rainy weather.

I've stayed at the Deer Run several times over the years and it never disappoints. The location next to Silver Dollar City and value can't be beat. Everyone on staff is super friendly and truly want you to have a great visit. While the property is starting to age a bit, it is still very clean and does the trick for a quick weekend getaway.

I have stayed at Deer Run twice this summer, both times with small children. it is inexpensive, which is a plus for a quick weekend getaway. The entire staff is extremely friendly and willing to help in any way they can. The rooms are rather small, but are immaculate. The beds, while comfortable enough, are a tad bit worn and could stand to be replaced. The first room we stayed in had an old style, rather small television, while the new one had a nice sized flat screen. I assume they are slowly replacing all of the televisions. The swimming pool, while small, was clean and the kids loved it. Breakfast was just average, with frozen waffles (thawed and ready to toast), very good biscuits and gravy, bread to toast, a few types of cereal, and canned fruit. Very adequate for the money you pay to stay here. While more items (yogurt, fresh fruit) would be nice, it is probably not feasible to provide this and still keep costs down. As long as you realize this is a small, family owned motel, and not a Comfort Inn or Holiday Inn Express (along with their higher prices), you will not be disappointed. Nothing fancy, but definitely a great little place to stay. Next-door neighbor is Silver Dollar City, and it is also on Indian Point, so you have easy access to Table Rock Lake.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the back side, overlooking the woods, otherwise, you will be looking at a brick wa...

The hotel is located very close to silver dollar city which is very convenient and there is even a bus that will pick you up from motel parking lot and drop you off at the front gate. The rooms are old and dated. They are just basic and clean. Which was fine for us since we were rarely in our room. The parking situation can be difficult if motel is full. We came back late from seeing Branson belle and literally could not find a parking spot. The pool is disappointing it is small with greenish water and debris floating in it. Overall a great value if your like us and just need a place to sleep.

I stayed at Deer Run from July 27th to July 30th and this is my thoughts, I have literally stayed in Motels from Missouri to Honolulu Hawaii and this is the cleanest motel I have ever stayed in. On top of that what a wonderful breakfast every morning not just bagels and donuts, but hot biscuits and gravy, waffles, cereal, hot coffee, and juices. Oh yeah and the free shuttle to Silver Dollar City was quite awesome too saving money on parking and a lot less walking. I will absolutely stay here again.

Wonderful Motel! Family owned, Extremely friendly staff. Impeccably clean rooms. If you visit Branson & are planning on going to Silver Dollar City, Table Rock Lake, Zip lining or going to shows, this is the place for you. Best temperature (by far) of any outdoor pool as most are like bathwater. Perfect! Only complaints I read involved the breakfast buffet. I guess some folks expect too much!. Not extensive but to me its a bonus based on the rates, rooms and amenities.
Besides the complementary transportation to SDC, there is a General Store that has a little bit of everything, a deli featuring pizza, sandwiches, ice cream & Zip lines.
Can't wait to return!
