“Simple and CLEAN!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2013 via mobile

My family and I have been staying here for the past several years. We wouldn't want to stay in any other motel around there. Laura is the most helpful and sweet manager. Every time I call to make reservations she remembers me and that's a plus. The rooms are always clean and ready. We love the location. It's out of the way but still close enough to what we want to do. The price is very affordable. If you're ever in the area, I'd recommend stopping here for a good nights rest, its peaceful.

We have stayed at Shady Acre Motel for the past 5 years during our visit to the Bluegrass Festival at SDC. The staff are all friendly and helpful. This year we had to convene in the office during a tornado watch, and they were so calm and welcoming. The rooms are clean and comfortable. We enjoy the kitchenette which helps us eat healthier and more economically. It is also a very handy location for our jaunt to the festival at SDC. We are able to avoid all the downtown traffic. The prices are also very reasonable. It's the perfect fit for us!

This is a quaint little Motel that my wife and I have been staying at now for 20 years. We select it every trip to Branson and Silver Dollar City. Laura runs a great motel with clean and newly decorated rooms. Some have kitchenettes. It's within minutes of the shows in Branson.

We stayed there for a night the price was reasonable price. The rooms were clean, had TV, Wi-Fi, and everything we needed. The service was nice. They have separate rooms for smoker and non-smokers was that was nice. They have restaurants near by and fast-food places that deliver that is convenient. It is near the sliver dollar city, showboat and other attractions.

Room Tip: when check-in mention if you want non-smoker.

After reading so many favorable reviews,my husband and I decided to give family owned and operated Shady Acres a try and were very glad that we did. Our room was clean,quiet and comfortable with two queen beds,mini refrigerator and microwave and cable tv with 60 channels and great reception for $45 a night.With tax it came to $47.91.No,that's not a typo,that's the price! FYI,bring your own hair dryer,they're not provided. The property has an outdoor pool,which,of course,wasn't open in early April so I can't comment on that.I highly recommend this property and as far as my husband and I are concerned,this is our new go to motel whenever we're in the Branson area.

Room Tip: Most of the rooms are one story,which is my personal preference.I don't like anyone walking arou...

This motel was recommended to me by the father of a friend who has stayed here for many years.. We stayed here the first time about 5 years ago and have not been to another hotel in Branson since.

There is a small pool, clean rooms, and friendly staff waiting for you. This is a small motel built in the 40-50's and has been remodeled several times. Most of the rooms have a different decor, although the staff usually remembers you when you call for a reservation and we usually get the same series of rooms. Not that you can't request other rooms but it is nice to know what to expect.

There also is a small walking path around the caretakers home/office that the kids like to play on. It is close to the strip though and I usually supervise them while they are out. No life guard at the pool but this is nothing out of the ordinary for a hotel pool.

Overall it is a clean, relatively cheap, friendly atmosphere motel with quick access to SDC and Branson West and access to the strip should you want to go there.

Definitely recommend for a no frills stay.

Thank you for your positive review. We are thankful for our many repeat guests who we consider family!

You might be interested to know we purchased this property in the early 90's. The only thing here was the existing house which was built in the 60's. This house is now our office and a residence. The first portion of the motel was built in 1993, with 2 additional sections added in later years. We pride ourselves on keeping our motel and property clean and up to date.

We are looking forward to another great season in 2013!

We were pleasantly suprised at the homey atmosphere and we loved the friendly staff. We booked one night and didn't want to leave on the morning of departure so we stayed an additional 2 days and just relaxed by the pool.

Room Tip: We will always call here first when visiting the area. It is a nice change from the noise and crowd...
