“Friendliest Hotel in Branson”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 18, 2013

From the moment we checked in, the staff of the Residence Inn in Branson made us feel as if we were famiily. The front desk clerk was greeted us immediately and got us checked in with speed and proficiency. Our first evening we were treated to an evening snack (grilled chicken sandwiches, baked beans, potato salad, chips, brownies and rice crispy treats), which really saved us a few dollars during our stay in Branson. The food service staff was accommodating in arranging seating for the six of us. The tables were cleaned instantly upon people leaving so that newcomers would have a clean place to eat.The manager of the hotel, Neill Larson, greeted all of the guests during dinner and breakfast, makiing me feel as if I were a guest in his home. The room was lovely. How great to have a suite where we could relax in the living area with friends, pop some hotel-provided free popcorn, watch a little television on one of the two televisions in the room, entertain friends and famiily without having them sit on our beds, and let mom go to sleep in the other room while we stayed up a little longer. Each day of our stay the room was cleaned beautifully, and we would come "home" to the coziest rest before going out to explore Branson. If you need a place to stay in Branson, pick the Residence Inn. It is the friendliest hotel in Branson!!!

Room Tip: Every room I've ever stayed in at this hotel is absolutely perfect. There is not one bit of hal...

Came early as winter weather coming in. Room is very clean and accommodating. They have afternoon snacks mid week. After nice dip in pool we sat outside near firepit and enjoyed their barbque pork sandwiches that they provided. Staff is very friendly and helpful.

This was our first stay at this Residence Inn. Upon entering, I was very pleased that the hotel did not have any off smells. Many times older hotels have odd smells. The hotel didn't feel dated, as it was so clean.

The hotel staff were very nice and helpful. We enjoyed the evening snacks that are available Tues-Thurs. you can make a meal out of them. One night was hot dogs, potato salad, pasta salad and more. The next night was hot pretzels, cheese, chips, chili and more. The breakfast was also good (the best that we've come across in a Branson hotel). The waffle mix was good, compared to other hotels that have a chemical tasting waffle mix. There was scrambled eggs, sausage, french toast, hashbrown patties, muffins, bagels, cereal, coffee, juices and I'm sure more I'm forgetting.

Another positive was the laundry room. It is $2 to wash and dry a tub. Not bad at all. The room was clean and smelled pleasant. No musty, moldy smell here. I wasn't afraid to put my clothes in the washer, as everything was so clean.

My husband and daughter enjoyed the pool. It was cold the first 2 nights, but after he mentioned it to the staff, he noticed it seemed warmer the 3rd night.

I'd say the only bad thing is the room layout. We were in a 1 Queen Suite with a sofa bed. I wish it had 2 Queens instead, as the sofa bed was very uncomfortable. My 8 year old daughter slept on it and it was even difficult for her. We ended up folding up an extra blanket and putting that under her sheet to help cover the coils. I don't think an adult would be at all comfortable on the sofa bed. This is what gives it a 4 star instead of 5. We probably won't be able to stay here again, because we usually come with more family and the adults would need a room with 2 queen beds and not a sofa bed. There is a bigger room with this available, but is $60 more per night. It does have 2 bathrooms though.

Altogether, I'd say if you don't need the sofa bed or if it wouldn't bother you, for sure stay here!

Room Tip: We were on the first floor and I don't recommend it. It's a bit louder, with the basketball...

Thank you so much for your positive review about our hotel! We take pride in keeping it clean, and the wonderful amenities we offer, so I am very glad you enjoyed the breakfast and the evening socials! I am so sorry the sofa sleeper was not more comfortable for your daughter. Hopefully you might be able to try us again, and take advantage of our 2 bedroom suites! We appreciate your recommendations of our hotel, and we hope we are able to see you again!

We enjoyed the Residence Inn so much. It was a great stay - we extended longer than our week we were allowed at our resort, so we moved to the Residence Inn and it was as nice, if not nicer. The pool was warmer and the rooms were great. I love the kitchen that is included and breakfast was more than satisfying. I will stay here again.

The hotel was steam cleaning all the carpets the day we arrived, so we knew the rugs were clean, and the one bedroom looked great! I had a problem with the bed the first night, (as in pain), but the very helpful gal at the front desk said an eggcrate would take care of it, and she was right. The bed was satisfactory for the next 2 nights. Breakfast was as usual, and on Wednesday and Thursday they had the managers social in the evening which substituted for dinner those nights. The dogwoods are in tremendous bloom right now and gorgeous!!!!

Thank you for choosing to stay with us at the Residence Inn Branson. We strive to keep our rooms clean like having our carpets cleaned at least twice a year. We understand your concern with the beds and are currently working on getting new ones hopfully this year and the evening social is just a added touch for our guests that everyone seems to enjoy. We hope to see you again in the near future.

The lady at the front desk was great. She new branson, and how to get around. Breakfast was different every day, what a surprise. Rooms were very clean and well maintained. We will be back.
Great location, easy getting in and out. The patio had a fire pit to sit around and talk with friends.

Room Tip: Any room in this hotel wood be great.

My wife and I stayed here a couple of years ago when we were needing some R & R. We stayed in the one bedroom suite and was a nice change from just a motel room. Needing to have a quiet get-away we decided to stay here again for a few days. We stayed in a one bedroom suite, which was nice. The room itself was great but there were a couple things that were not so great. First was the TV channel selections. If you just want to watch news, sports or movie channels you will like it, but not much to watch beyond that. Second, you can hear everything in the hallway outside your door. Will we stay here again? Not before asking if they have upgraded their TV channel selection to match the price of the room!

Thank you so much for choosing to return to stay with us! I am so glad that you enjoyed your room with us. I do apologize about the noise in the hallway that you experienced, and for your disappointment in our tv channel selection. I will look into the possibility of adding to the channel selections to see if we can improve on that. I do hope you will return to stay with us again, and if you do experience noise issues again, just be sure to let us know at the front desk and we will do everything possible to accomadate you, even if it means helping you move to a quieter area of the hotel. We really appreciate your taking the time to give us your feedback, we always want to know how our guests are enjoying our hotel, and what else we can do to make your experience with us here more enjoyable! That is what we always strive for! Thank you again & we hope to see you to stay with us again soon!
