“Not what I expected”
Reviewed 19 August 2014

The room did not look like the one that I had reserved. Our patio was next to the pool, which was fine, but no privacy when sitting outside. Pool was cool and had to close the doors to keep breeze from chilling us when we used the pool.

Family reunion and celebration of 70th birthday. The front office was very friendly and accommodating and provided a room with tables and chairs for the birthday party. Motel room was large and clean with a small refrigerator which was nice for leftover birthday cake. Blow dryer, iron, and coffee pot in the room. We used the indoor pool and large outdoor patio. A very nice stay and gathering place for a large family.

Though dated, it is still a charming family owned property. Comfortable beds, decent free breakfast. A decent value for the weekend car cruise when Branson was so busy. Nice indoor pool, and decent outdoor pool.

Room Tip: Ask for a veranda room for your own patio!

This was my first visit to Southern Oaks Inn but it will not be my last!! The rooms were very spacious plus had hair dryers, coffee pots, small refrigerators and very reliable Wifi. The "hot" breakfast was really good and you had plenty to choose from!!The location is ideal as it is just a little off the strip but right across from the The Shoji Tabuchi Theater and within walking distance of shows, restaurants, and some shopping. They also have an outdoor pool and a beautiful indoor pool.The staff at Southern Oaks Inn was very friendly from the desk clerks to the housekeepers to the breakfast cooks. Had a very enjoyable stay at Southern Oaks Inn!!

The location of this hotel is great, it's not right on the strip but within minutes of everything. The indoor pool is excellent! Every staff member we met was very nice and polite, the ladies in the breakfast area were our favorite! The breakfast is ok, no fresh fruit and during busy times it's hard to get to items because of the way it's set up. We also had an issue with our youngest daughter wetting the bed and they took care of it immediately. The hotel is outdated but the rooms were nice. Overall we were happy with our stay.

We stayed 2 nights here, my 2nd time staying here. The rooms are large...lots of floor space for kids to play, we have a 2 year old. Our beds were comfy pillow tops but I know not all the rooms had been updated with these mattresses. These are small queen beds though not the almost king I have at home. Our room also came with a fridge which was very handy with children. Breakfast here is very good. Kept fresh and hot throughout the morning. 2 pools which are both very good. The indoor pool is one of the nicer ones in town, especially for the price. Location was very convenient to all routes...you could avoid most of 76 if you tried. I hope this hotel keeps up with the positive changes they are making and doesn't fall by the wayside because I enjoy staying here.
