“Great Hotel”
Reviewed 2 September 2013

The 1st Inn Branson Hotel is definitely a 4 star hotel on a 2 star budget. They offer free breakfast every morning (notice I didn't say "Continental" - a word I've come to fear and despise), and that is truly a great deal. During my stay, I was able to get coffee, juice, milk, cereal, eggs, yogurt, sausage, biscuits and gravy, and donuts every single morning. I didn't buy breakfast ONCE thanks to these guys!

The room I stayed in was clean, stocked, and even came with a big screen tv, decent sized fridge, mini coffee machine, and a microwave. The staff was friendly and helpful, and they even offered me free cookies at check-in!

The hotel is also conveniently located along the 76 Strip, so you're smack dab in the center if the action (which is both good and bad). Thankfully, they have a back exit, so I learned the back roads pretty quick to avoid all the tourist congestion on 76.

Room Tip: The housekeeping here does expect to be tipped daily - they cycle their room attendants, and each da...

We stayed at the property on August 9 - 11. We drove down from St. Louis and was tired when we arrived. Unfortunately for us...a storm had just rolled through and knocked out the power to the 2nd building where are rooms were reserved. The staff was doing their best and thought power would be restored within an hour. We made the best of it by walking next door for some ice cream. Power was eventually restored. Older property, nothing special, but priced right! Included FREE Wi-Fi and FREE Hot Breakfast. We did not use the pool. We would stay here again.

The 1st Inn has 2 buildings. The older one has outside doors and looks dated. We didn't have rooms in it so I can't rate it. We stayed in the 2nd building, which I would highly recommend requesting to be sure you get in it. The continental breakfast was served there, which was just okay... powdered eggs, sausage, biscuits and gravy, toast, donuts, cereal, yogurt, canned fruit, apples, oranges, apple juice, orange juice, and coffee. The pillows in the room where really fluffy, so if you like a flat pillow then bring your own. There are 2 sink areas, but not any counter space. They did have a nice entertainment center and table with room to set things. The rooms don't have clocks either. The pool was great... the kids loved the 8ft deep side. Overall it was a nice place to stay.

This trip we were on the first floor, room 104. Carpet was stained, as were the chairs. Room had a musty odor, and electricity was provided with power strips instead of outlets. This property was hit by the recent tornado, and the first floor shows it. We didn't utilize the pool, since we were out late at a show. There was no bulb in one of the lamps, but staff provided one promptly. Breakfast was good, but no eggs on the second (Sunday) morning. Staff personnel were outstanding, and did all they could to make our stay pleasant. We will stay again, but ask for either the 2nd or 3rd floor, or the new building.

Room Tip: Ask for a room in the new, lower building, or one on the second/third floor. There is an elevator t...

The front park of the property is the older part and has outside entrances. You can request the back building which is newer and has interior corroders. We had three rooms, and enjoyed with
little ones, being able to visit in the hall and not having to worry about them roaming off possibly into the street. The breakfast room was also just down the hall. Food was typical, but had some hot items. Good enough to get your day started.
We found the rooms to be larger than most and comfortable. We were surprised at the rate considering they are on the strip and we came in peak tourist season.
They do have an outdoor pool. It's rather small and you have to walk to it.
Overall we will stay there again.

Room Tip: Again, ask for a room in the back building. Newer.

This was the first time we stayed at 1st Inn Branson. We stayed four nights. The room and the premises were very clean. The Inn has an unsual layout - 2 buildings, one up the hill and one down the hill. The staff was very helpful and professional. The breakfast, served in the second building, was very good. We did not have children. However, the Inn has a pool and an interesting miniature golf course. It's close to many attractions, restaurants and shopping. We would stay here again.
