“Like staying with family”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 27, 2012

This was our first visit to the Deer Run. We will be back here! The Owners are two couples and they are on scene for whatever you may need. We got a very clean, nice and comfortable room at a very reasonable rate. This place is literally sharing a property line with Silver Dollar City, AND they offer a shuttle back and forth. One of the good points is, I saw them washing the comforters! Find me a hotel that washes the comforters after every guest. She said "when I stay somewhere, I don't want to hope it's clean, I want to know it is". I found out that the Owners live on property, so that tells me they have a vested interest in it's operation and cleanliness. We had no problems during our stay, but I think if we did, they would be all over it to make it right. We were there in the fall, so no pool time, but it's there, and it looks nice, complimentary breakfast was good, (served in what I'm told is an updated conference room). Great location, very nice folks. Thanks for a great vacation!

Room Tip: They have nice 2 bedroom suites with a living room, kitchenette and full sized fridge, save you some...

My husband I stayed here two nights. The shuttle to Silver Dollar City was great. The motel check in was easy and the owners are very friendly. The rooms are very clean and the breakfast had a good variety of items to choose from. We will stay here again on our next visit to Silver Dollar City.

We stayed 15 days at Deer Run while attending the Harvest Festival at Silver Dollar City. We danced with friends at the Dance Barn. The band as well as friends stayed there also. They made us feel like family. Our room was always clean and ready for us on our return from SDC.We enjoy eating breakfast with the band and our friends. The biscuits and gravy is very good and the employees greet us with a smile. The owners greet us by our names.We hope to stay at Deer Run for a long time as we go to SDC a lot during the year.

Room Tip: If you get a room behind the motel on the ground leval you can park in front of your room. It makes...

My daughter and I took a four day girls trip to branson 9-27-9-30-12. We stayed at this wonderful motel and what a a great stay. The rooms were comfy and clean. We asked to upgrade upon arrival to a one bedroom kitchenette to save on food cost. They readily accomodated us and we also received a nice discount. The closeness and convenience to SDC was wonderful, we were home in no time after it closed. We like the quietness and ease of getting around. The staff were very friendly and eager to please your every wish. I highly recomend this wonderful motel. If you want to be away from the hassle of Branson this is the place to be. We will be back!

Room Tip: Kitchenettes has less vanity space but you have a fridge, stove and microwave.

The employees are nice, the room was clean, however the employee smoking situation especially the cigar's was very offensive. It was very strong and in my opinion should not be done in the common area's of the Motel where you are forced to pass on the way to the parking lot, pool and the office. The televisions are in need of an upgrade.

My family of 4 stayed at the Deer Run, 8/24-8/26/12 and had a great stay! We were coming into Branson to see a concert which was cancelled,but, decided to visit Branson anyway. On the way into town we requested that our rooms be changed and they were able to do that, no problem-no hassle at all. When we got there they surprised us by congratulating us on our anniversary by putting it up on their marquee. We were surprised and pleased and used this as a photo op for memories of our anniversary and our visit to Branson! They were able to give us advice on what to do at SDC, which our entire family enjoyed in spite of the much needed rain which arrived during our stay. Our daughter brought her Ipod and needed to charge it, and didn't have a way to charge it, Jodi very graciously allowed our daughter to charge her ipod and was willing to return it to our room. We really appreciated this and it was no hassle at all. The breakfast was good to have on both morning in town and then on our way out. We will definitely visit this motel again and recommend our friends and family to go there as well.

Deer Run is an inexpensive hotel that is just off the Silver Dollar City property. It's not big on amenities, but the rooms are clean, and the staff is very nice. They serve a complimentary breakfast. When I was there, it was biscuits and gravy, cereals, fruit, bagels, bread, and donuts along wth coffee, juice, and tea bags and hot chocolate packets. Pretty much a carb overload!

There's a good sized outdoor pool onsite, and nearby is a bar and a convenience store.

The only negative I'm aware of is that cell reception is bad in the 1st floor room on the side of the office as they're practically underground.

Room Tip: bad cell phone reception on the highway side of the first floor
