Reviewed August 12, 2013

I visit Branson quite often, and I have been looking for that quaint, family-owned place to stay that feels like home. I loved Shady Acre! It was super clean, quiet, and the staff were very friendly. It looked as if our room had recently been remodeled with a new sink, faucets, shower insert, and flooring. The price was amazing - I would even have paid more for such a pleasant stay.

We just returned from a 3 night stay in an upstairs King Kitchenette unit at the Shady Acre Motel and we were very pleased with our stay there. The entire property appears to be very well maintained and our room and bathroom were spotless.
The king sized bed and the sleeping pillows were very comfortable for both my husband and me and that's not always the case when we travel. It was so nice to have a sofa (a hide-a-bed) in the room as we both spend time reading in the morning and the small 2-person table and chairs was an ideal size for our computer. The a/c did a great job of keeping the room comfortable and it wasn't overly noisy as so many individual units can be. The chairs on the small balcony allowed us to go outside and sit in the evening.
Having a kitchenette proved to be convenient and more cost-effective than eating out every meal. The kitchen basics are provided, a small microwave, a 2 burner electric cooktop, a full-size fridge (which was great to have!) plus dishes, utensils and a very small set of well-used pans, as well as a dish drainer, dish cloth, dish towel and dish soap. There is also a small coffeemaker in the room. The pans were the only thing that were a bit of a drawback for me due to their age and condition...but by the same token, they worked for what we needed them to do and I can completely understand why the owners would be hesitant to replace them if motel guests aren't going to take care of them.
But probably the thing that was most noticeable was just how quiet our room was! Even though the motel sits right on Hwy 76, you would never know it. We didn't even realize we had neighbors until we happened to look out our window and see their truck! That really boosts the value of the room in my opinion.
The location is great. You are literally just minutes from Silver Dollar City. We loved being away from the traffic and noise of Branson and yet were so close that it didn't take any time at all to get there...it does help in minimizing frustration and headaches to know the backroads for navigating Branson. Going the other direction, you are just a few miles from Wal-Mart, a grocery store and several fast food restaurants and gas stations.
The staff were very friendly and were very accommodating about respecting our desire for a quiet and restful stay, which we greatly appreciated.
I have to say, this was a great value in every respect and that we would not hesitate to stay at Shady Acre Motel again...and after writing this very favorable review, I just realized that it may become more difficult to do so in the future!

We've stayed there twice now, once for 1 night near Christmas and recently for a 2 night stay. We've been very please both times. Everyone we've dealt with has been very friendly and helpful. It definitely reminds you of motels from the past, say the 50's, in a good way. It's very, very clean, attractively decorated and conveniently located. It's near Silver Dollar City and just a few miles outside of Branson. There was a microwave and coffee maker in our room and the beds were comfortable. The price is definitely like something from decades ago! They have a small swimming pool and a limited number of smoking rooms. Obviously it's not a 4 star resort and anyone thinking that's what they should be getting needs to keep driving. But if you want something very clean, friendly and convenient with it's own ambience couldn't do better.

Room Tip: They have a variety available and will gladly discuss your options. If you are there in person they...

We were just at the Shady Acres motel. We have driven by many times and stayed in Branson. This will be our choice next time too. It is just up the road from SDC which really helps with the traffic situation. The rooms are very clean and smell so fresh. It is like a bit of country. The grounds are well taken care of. The pool is small but very clean. The staff are so polite and do their best to take care of your needs. Our room had a microwave and small refrig. in the room. This worked great for us. There were 8 in our group and all were happy staying there. We found places to eat close by in Branson West.

We stopped here for one night on way to cabin on the lake. It gave us a chance to tour Branson area and have some fun before heading to our final destination. Service was excellent and the hotel was clean. Also we found it a convenient location to check out Branson.

Room Tip: A rates like this its a no brainer!

Great place to stay for the money. Its off the strip so you do not have to be around all the hustle and bustle, but its close enough that you can be in Branson in minutes. The Staff were very friendly, rooms clean and well maintained, and the property is well kept. The Staff did not bother us with trying to get in and clean the rooms on the mornings that we took our time getting ready (We didn't leave until 11 AM one day). As soon as we were gone though, they tackled our room like a Linebacker. Overall great place away from the strip.
