We recently traveled to Branson for a family vacation. I looked at several options for lodging and this one SEEMED great, deluxe rooms, indoor and outdoor pool, great location etc. The front desk people were nice even gave us an option of what floor we wanted to stay on. But that is about as good as it got. The beds were HORRIBLE! The hardest and loudest bed I have ever slept on. It sounded like it was filled with plastice wrap. Every time my husband or chirldren turned over it woke the rest of us up. The walls are also very thin. I heard the people next door coughing all night and going to the bathroom. The bathroom was very small. The door barely missed the toilet when you opened it. The indoor pool was small and had a very strong chlorine odor. The hot tubs were small and not jetted, and dirty. The breakfast wasn't too bad. We checked out after one night and went to a local condo. The rest of our stay in Branson was wonderful.

Stayed here through a time share tour. We were nervous, but EXTREMELY satisfied in the end.

Very clean, very friendly, good breakfast(for a free breakfast).

Minuses were beds were too firm for me. Pillows were very thin and the indoor pool was cold. However, compared to other Branson area hotels, this was one of the best we have stayed at!

We booked our rooms thru the Branson Tourism Center and I think that was our first mistake....more about that later. This hotel is just OK. It is actually two buildings, the one in the front has the "deluxe" rooms. The building around back, or building two, is where we stayed. We felt like red headed stepchildren after comparing the other building with ours. All in all the rooms were very small and shabby looking. The continental breakfast was biscuits and gravy (not good tasting) and canned fruit and stale donuts. I just was not impressed at all. Now back to the Branson Tourism Center, Do NOT repeat NOT book any packages and rooms thru them. When you go to pick up your tickets they put a lot of pressure on you to do one of those tour a vacation resort things. They tried to get us to go for a two hour presentation of the Wyndham Resorts or something like that. Even after telling them no, they kept on and on.

My husband and I booked the Grand Oaks for our first ever kid-free weekend. We had a blast! Branson was wonderful and the Grand Oaks was a great base for our busy, 3-day weekend.

We stayed in a king, jacuzzi room in building 1. The decor was tasteful and the room was comfortable and clean. Each morning our breakfast included the usual continental fare, along with hot options. Twice there were oatmeal, waffles and french toast. One morning was biscuits and gravy.

There was one employee at the front desk who was there everytime we passed by, morning or night. She was always cheerful and also recommended a few dining options to us.

One of my favorite things about the Grand Oaks is it's location. It is situated with easy access to 76. However, being located on Green Mountain, we could always take alternate routes to avoid the holiday weekend traffic on the main strip, which was very heavy at times.

On a side note, be sure to check out Branson Landing. It was our first time being down there and a great spot to hang out. We enjoyed a wonderful dinner at the Cantina Laredo at our patio table overlooking the Lake and Fire and Water Show. It was definitely one of my favorite experiences from the weekend.

I hope we can make this an annual tradition for me and my husband. We will definitely consider the Grand Oaks in the future.

Booked a weekend trip to Branson and stayed at the Grand Oaks for a 2nd time. The 2nd time around was just as enjoyable as my 1st time staying there. Very clean room, Great friendly staff that greets your when you enter and leave there hotel. Speedy check in and check out. Above average breakfast.
The Hotel has two buildings. Building one has the inside pool and building 2 has the outside pool. When I checked in I was booked in Building 2. when I went to the room it was large and very nice but I wanted to be in the building with the inside heated pool since it was cold that weekend. So after calling the front desk I was told to come back to the front and she would move me to building 1 without a problem. By the time I drove back to the front desk (which was less then 5 minutes) the desk lady had my new room key ready and we exchanged keys and I was on my way to my new room in building one. Great service!!!
The hotel is tops on my list when I visit Brason because of the great location,price and very friendly staff that makes your visit so enjoyable.

We arrived a couple of hours early and asked if we could check in. We had to wait an hour for our room but that was our fault., after all we were early. They were very accomodating getting us in before check in. Also was not a frig in our room (even though I asked for one when I made the reservation). They brought one in and set it up for us. The room was wonderful. We had a jacuzzi suite. We have stayed at quite a few Marriots and Hiltons and this was just as nice. If there was one thing that disappointed us, it was the complimentary breakfast. Not only was the only hot thing oatmeal (which I hate), what they did have was not good. The doughnuts were stale and the fruit was canned. When I mentioned at check out that we didn't like the breakfast, the manager said we should have went to the other building because they had bisquits and gravy. I told him no one told us that and if they would have, we would have went over there. They need to tell people what building is serving what hot breakfast item. Other than the breakfast, it was great and well worth the price.
