Wow! I've reviewed several of the recent reviews, and am really surprised at their negativity!
Had to find lodging for the weekend, so I would be able to work with the balloons during the Branson Balloon Festival.
I found this motel to be the least expensive available on trivago.com, a few days before actually making my reservations.
I called the motel when I was ready to make the reservations, and was surprised again when I was given a price even lower than what I'd seen on trivago!
I arrived earlier than the designated check-in time on Thursday, but had no problems or arguments from management.
Had a 2nd floor room on one end of the building, which proved to be advantageous on Saturday night!
The room was clean, inviting, and nice and cool upon entering. Linens were well stocked, bathroom well stocked with toilet paper, soap, and shampoo.
I made multiple trips between the motel and the Branson Recplex, as well as other destinations in town, during the weekend.
Friday and Saturday morning, upon returning to the motel after the morning flights, the "housekeeper" was busy cleaning rooms, but was sure to ask me if I needed any linens, cleaning, trash emptied, or any other housekeeping services. The manager also asked me the same question!
Saturday night, while sitting on the front patio, fireworks started going off at the property next door. Being right on the end of the building closest to the fireworks, I had a perfect view of the nearly 15 minute, continuous show! I found out, moments after the display, that this happens every Saturday night at that property!
On Sunday morning, check-out day, and the last morning of the Festival, our balloon flight and recovery took a bit longer than expected. So, I didn't make it back to the motel in time to check out by the designated time.
Once I realized that I wasn't going to make it in time, I called the motel to apologize for my oversight, and let them know that I'd be back to check out as soon as possible.
The manager was, again, very hospitable and told me not to worry about it, that it was no problem.
I was very pleased with everything about this motel. I proudly give them a 5-STAR KUDOS, and would highly recommend the motel for as long as you plan on being in Branson!
