“Best value in Branson! Clean, comfortable rooms-friendly, helpful staff! Love 12 Oaks!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 May 2014

We stay at 12 Oaks Inn every time we go to Branson! Clean, comfortable rooms-friendly, helpful staff! They put on a wonderful fireworks display on the 4th-free with your room, have been 5 years in a row. Not a fancy hotel, but you will not find a better value for your money!

We stayed at your establishment about a week ago. We stayed in your family suite on the first floor. We were walking down to get some ice and noticed a housekeeper with grey hair and heavy set just sitting down in the room not doing anything and when we walked back by about 10 to 15 minutes later she was still in the same spot doing nothing, also we heard the same housekeeper complaining about working and the other guests and talking bad about your other workers. We will never stay at your establishment with that kind of service.

Dear Diane D., Thanks for staying with us during your recent visit to Branson. I am sorry that one of our housekeepers was not performing up to our standards and did not have a positive attitude towards her coworkers. I will be addressing this issue directly with this housekeeper after reading your review. I appreciate that you let us know about this issue. I hope that other than this issue you enjoyed your stay? I am sorry to hear that you would not consider staying with us again because of this. Our housekeeping staff changes throughout the year, especially when someone is not happy with their job. I hope that you would reconsider staying again in the future.

Sincerely,

Jennifer Moore

We have been going to the Branson area for mini vacations for the past 27yrs. We have stayed at a variety of different hotels in the area. Twelve Oaks Inn is the best bang for your buck! It is very clean and the staff have always been very gracious every time we have stayed there. If I could find anything to comment negatively about it would have to be the height of the shower head. Than again maybe I'm just too tall.

So many people obviously like this place and have had great experiences here that I hate to write this review after all this time, but it must be done. Our stay can be summed up in one word: Roaches.

We had booked 3 nights in the Family Apartment for our September, 2013, trip to the Branson area. The hotel is in a great location off the strip and on the right side of town to get out to Silver Dollar City in the morning. Great rates, too...it's often difficult to find accommodations for 7 at a fair price.

We got there on Wednesday night, and we had a good night. Then we get up Thursday morning and find a roach on the wall. Just one. We weren't happy, obviously, but we killed it, looked through the kitchen cabinets, didn't see any more, and figured things would be fine. Well...we get the kids in bed on Thursday night, and we see another one. We kill it and look around some more, not finding any others. At this point I promised my wife I'd speak to the front desk in the morning. Then the inexcusable happened. I walked into the bedroom across from the kitchen to check on the kids and there was a roach...on the pillow...next to my child's head. That was the last straw.

I went to the desk immediately and informed them of the issue and that we needed a different room. Fortunately, one of the family suites was not booked for the night and we got all the kids up and moved all of our stuff down there. They took an extra $5 off per night for the trouble, but that didn't feel like enough for the hassle and, frankly, the grossness of it. Also, the guy at the desk was far more defensive than he was apologetic, saying they'd "never" had a roach problem before. Whatever, buddy, that's not especially relevant to my current situation. He should have been stumbling all over himself apologizing for the situation, but he wasn't. That was pretty disappointing.

The guy also said I should have said something right away that morning, like it was almost somehow my fault. The truth is that there was nothing they could have done while we were there. He said they'd have to bomb the room and kill the roaches, which didn't sound like anything more than a temporary solution. I hope they managed to find the root cause of the problem. I saw 3 roaches...I'm going to guess those weren't the only 3 near that room.

Again, so many people love this place that our experience simply can't be the norm. The family suite was fine, but for obvious reasons we slept with one eye open until we left on Saturday morning.

The next time we come to Branson, we will most certainly be staying elsewhere. Even though they were able to move us rooms and everybody else seems to like this place...roaches are a sin that motel simply cannot commit. And not being super apologetic about it is even worse.

Dear univac528,

I am sorry that you encountered roaches in your room during your stay with us LAST YEAR in September. We obviously were unaware that they were there before you checked in. We would have NEVER let you stay in that room to begin with if we knew they were there. As soon as you informed us about them being there, we immediately addressed the issue. We offered you another room for a discounted rate or the option to check out and go elsewhere and receive a full refund. You chose to stay and go to another room.

Once you vacated the room we bombed that room ourselves with store bought pesticide until we were able to have our local pest control treat the room. The pest control did come out and Fully Treated the room completely in a 3 stage process. THERE ARE NO MORE ROACHES IN THE FAMILY APARTMENT!

We have a reputation of being a CLEAN, Affordable and Family Oriented Motel. We have many customers that visit our motel every year and majority of them are repeat customers. Unfortunately things happen and we can only address the issues as they come along.

Again I am sorry that you had to encounter this situation.

Sincerely,

Jennifer Moore

The owners of this hotel have really tired to get this facitiy back up on to par with the more modern and newer hotels. Lots of new minor updates has brought this hotel back up to present specs. The rooms are extremely clean, the front desk staff are very friendly, and overall we had a pleasant stay. The breakfast is mainly composed of biscuits & gravy, cereal, toast, fruit, milk, and juice.

Room Tip: Do not stay on the front rooms 101-109. 103 is next to the breakfast room and rooms 106-109 are clos...

This motel was a great value! The room was huge.We booked a King bed with a couch, it was a nice room. Clean room, comfortable bed, good location. It was off the main busy road. The breakfast room was nice, not much variety, but enough. Our room was quiet, but the shower faucets were quite loud from the neighboring room. We would stay here again if we ever visit Branson in the future.

Room Tip: Choose the second floor. Less noise and no headlights shining in your window.

Another great stay at our favorite Branson motel. We've been staying here during our visits to Branson for quite a few years now. The location is great for easy access to everything, the rooms are clean and quiet, and the staff is always very friendly and helpful. We plan to be back in May as soon as we can determine our travel dates. Thanks again for contributing to a good vacation.
