“Very friendly place to stay”
Reviewed July 13, 2014

We've stayed at Shady Acre for several years now. Twice already this year. The manager acts like she's known you all your life. So nice. Will get you anything you might need. Rooms are always clean and very reasonable rates. I think all rooms have a microwave and refrig. It is very handy to Silver Dollar City. A really great place to stay. The only down side I can say is the parking lot is small, but can be managed.

Thank you for choosing to make us your home away from home! We appreciate your nice review! We have 16 rooms and 23 parking spaces (as well as 1 boat trailer space) with a lovely little grove of trees in the middle. We realize they can make it a little tight but are so partial to our big shady trees! We are thankful you're willing to work around them! We hope to see you again soon!

We come to Branson every year and now we will stay here every time! We LOVE this quaint little motel!! Rooms are super nice and staff is super friendly! Very close and convenient to Silver Dollar City and away from the traffic and noise of Branson!

We stayed two nights and had two rooms. Everything was perfect! Rooms clean and comfortable, we had connecting rooms and a kitchenette which helped tremendously. Great location for Silver Dollar City visit. Great value and very nice service. This will now be our go to place in Branson!

I have always loved small "Mom and Pop" motels, and like supporting small family businesses.
This is a wonderful place that provides a quiet oasis after a busy day of taking in Branson.
The rooms are spacious and have all the modern amenities. The kitchenette's are wonderful!
Everything is sparkling clean and fresh. The landscaping is well done and provides a peaceful setting. The pool is well maintained and I enjoy my early morning swims. The rates are so reasonable. You won't find more for your money anywhere! I wouldn't even consider staying anywhere else when I go to Branson. And that includes the big high dollar resorts. Shady Acres is the best! Home away from home.

Room Tip: If you are travelling with family or friends, the adjoining rooms are perfect!

Our family has been staying here for years when we come to Branson. We love it. It is perfect if you are going to Silver Dollar City - you avoid the traffic headache on the way back into Branson. It is always clean and we were impressed with the updates to the rooms when we were there in May 2014. And...they always remember us!

I am glad that we stayed here. Downhome atmosphere. Away from the strip but not far away for the drive. Local stores close like Dollar General and all fast food places. Wish we could of stayed longer. MOst of the motels on the strip are used up and expensive. Don't waste your time with them. Stay at Shady Acres Motel in Branson West.

Room Tip: Parking lot was small when we got back from Branson, hard to park around the big tree.

Thank you for your review! We love being away from the busyness of the strip yet close enough to enjoy. Our lovely big trees are what makes us the Shady Acre and are thankful you conquered the parking. For our future guests, we have plenty of parking in front of the rooms and behind the house. If it becomes a challenge late at night, please let us know and we'll accommodate you!

If you don't care about being downtown Branson this is the place to stay. We have been to Branson several times and Shady Acres is one of the best places we have stayed. The place was very clean and very reasonably priced. Beautiful setting , my grandson loved the pool. My daughter, son in law, niece and nephew went with us for a short get away. We love Branson and Love Shady Acres.
