“Everything you could need or want!”
Reviewed 27 May 2014

This Marriott hotel has everything you could need or want, 3 pools, a basketball court, tether ball, baseball field, ping pong, pool, movie rentals, arcade, board games, shuffleboard, and more! As for the rooms, they are clean comfortable and are a VERY good value for the cheap price! This is THE place to stay in Branson.

Room Tip: Get a room that faces the pool area, it's a great view!

We had never stayed at this property before, but we were more than pleasantly surprised when we arrived. The whole place is nestled off the strip, back behind other hotels, almost hidden from everything else. The whole place is centered around a main pool and gathering area, including a fire pit, and its manicured landscape is immaculate. The bar area near the pools, both indoor and out, is a nice surprise, and there are amenities galore. Ping pong, pool, crafts for kids, and even s'mores by the fire in the evening. You could stay here, never leave, and have tons to do. Our family will be back the very first chance we get.

Room Tip: Get a room 2nd floor and above for a secluded patio experience.

This was our second trip to Marriott's Willow Ridge Lodge. We had a two bedroom, two bath unit, with the second bedroom being a lock-off. Our daughter and her husband, 4 year old and 2 year old grandchildren also stayed in the unit with us. The over 1000 sq ft unit was perfect for the grandkids. We also used the full kitchen more than usual. The washer/dryer in the unit was always busy with the six of us. This resort is perfect for a family, especially for our 3 generations! We've stayed at Marriott Resorts in Orlando and Las Vegas also. While they were also great, this resort, though not as fancy as the others, has a lot more on site activities. A must do activity is the Marriott Celebration on Monday evening. Although it is off site, and there was a fee of $10/person, it was well worth it! Included in the price is a meal, including dessert. The best part, though, was the 15-20 shows that sent performers to sing a song or two, and tell about their show. Not only was it entertainment for the evening, it helped you decide which shows you'd like to see, and which ones you were not as interested in. We had the grandkids along, and even our 2 year old grandson enjoyed all of the music. Another great on site activity was the Wine and Cheese Tasting on Wed. evening. Again, the activity was very family friendly, as we were given soda for the grandkids, and again, there was live entertainment. This was a complimentary activity. There is also a tour of the area, provided by the resort for a small fee. While we didn't go this year, I went on our previous visit and it was great! We also participated in water aerobics classes and in making s'mores. The outside whirlpool and large pool were both great. On the colder days, we used the kiddy pool, large pool and hot tub inside. These were also nice. The location cannot be beat! While it is close to the "Strip," it is on the Yellow Route, so you can get most places quickly. The staff was all very friendly and helpful. The only negative is that there isn't a restaurant on site. Restaurants are very nearby, though, and a few will even deliver to your room.

Wow , we stayed one week in late April in this resort 4 hours trip from my daughters home in St Louis and the whole experience was fabulous , good cold weather in lower 30s , quiet place and good service from all the people in the village . The room was ok with 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms ,very comfortable for a big family although the outdoor pools and many Branson places were closed due to cold weather you will enjoy staying in this cozy resort , Better time to visited Branson area is summer when the children had many options and weather will be perfect , dont miss this place you would liked for sure.

My family and I enjoyed this resort. It felt like home with privacy. We had a master villa with attaching rooms so a total of two bedrooms and two bathrooms. Full size kitchen and a convenient little washer and dryer. We were given so many luxurious towels for bathing and swimming. I've never felt like running low on towels despite all our opportunities. My daughter enjoyed painting crafts, the ice cream social and s'mores. True resort living! Loved having access to indoor and outdoor pools. We also enjoyed having a concierge.

The only cons are the outdoor kiddie pool was closed. The pools water temperature despite being heated could still be up a few more degrees. It would have been nice if there is a restaurant on site.

You will not find a more relaxing hotel in the heart of Branson. The Willow Ridge Lodge is right off the Branson strip and yet you wouldn't know it as the property is surrounded by beautiful trees secluding the property from the Branson hustle and bustle. My family and I joined my parents for a 3 day stay at Willow Ridge. We enjoyed the spacious two bedroom villa with a great kitchen, sitting area, and laundry room. The beds were comfortable and our view was lovely overlooking the shuffleboard courts and pool. During our stay our family enjoyed the outside pool. Whiffle ball field, arcade games, and free snacks. There seems to be an abundance of older people at the Villas but I actually liked it because it seemed to have a slower environment while still having things for kids to do. The price of the rooms is reasonable and there are no extra fees for parking or Internet. The only thing I didn't like was the challenge of finding the hotel as Google maps takes you the back way and there are no signs on the back entrance making it hard to find.

Room Tip: There is no restaurant at the hotel but the kitchen is stocked full of dishes and has a stove, frig...
