“Parking pass fiasco”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 June 2014

Nice renovation, but you shouldn't have to go to the concierge to get your parking pass after you have paid for your reservations. When you go to get your parking pass, the concierge starts in on the timeshare deal. You just have to be firm and say no you are not interested.

It's too bad that the also don't have a continental breakfast, you have to pay for a meal at the restaurant if you want breakfast.

With that said, the rooms are nice since the renovation, a bit on the small side, but more modern. The splashatorium is nice and you have to pay separately when you make a room reservation. They also give you pool towels in the room so you can take them with you ahead of time.

It would also help if on there website you can indicate AAA for a rate. I had to make a normal reservation, then ask at the front desk telling them that I had made the reservation through their website, to be able to get the AAA rate.

We would stay there again, if we could get a good rate.

We really appreciate your comments about your recent stay. Thanks for posting. We are so glad you enjoyed your time with us.
We always want to offer our guests the opportunity to learn how they can own their family vacation, and become part of our Lodges At Timber Ridge family. Many of our very happy owners were once guests at our hotel, and decided to see how they could make the Welk Resort Branson vacation experience a permanent part of their lives. If guests are not interested, our concierge staff is happy to help your vacation experience in any way possible.
We do offer a AAA rate discount, as well as other kinds of discounts, but cannot put all of them on our website. We suggest looking for rates on our website, and then calling one of our reservation specialists. They will be able to assist you in finding the absolute best rate possible.
Thanks again for you positive review, and we hope to see you soon.

We booked this last minute using Travelocity for about $75. We arrived and were assigned a very nice room with a nice view. Room 411. The rooms and building looked freshly remodeled. The beds were firm and there were new pillows on the beds.

The wireless internet was free and worked well. They have an outdoor pool and small mini golf that is free with room. They have a kind of very small indoor pool and slide that is called Splashatarium that you can add for fee, not sure of the cost but think about $10 per person.

There was free coffee in the room and free freshly brewed coffee in the lobby. They have a breakfast buffet for about $8 adult, $6 children looks nice but we went to a close by restaurant instead.

The concierge was extremely helpful in providing help with shows and entertainment. They offered a return trip to see a time share, I politely refused this and they were not too pushy at all.

This was a great stay for a great price. Highly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: get a view of the mountain side not the parking lot.

Sits off the strip but very easy to get around , free miniature golf on site , organized children's activities , perfect for families, have mini fridge in room but no microwave, there is one microwave in a different building

I have been coming to this hotel every year for the past 3 years. This year will probably be my last. The hotel grounds are great and the rooms are super comfy. But after check in the lady at the desk told me to go to there concierge to get a parking pass. Come to find out it was a timeshare trap. The lady asked me twenty questions to feel me out to see if I would qualify for timeshare. The more I pushed to just get the pass and get out of there she kept going with her sales pitch. I do not appreciate the trap. My advise is request to get the parking pass from the front desk and refuse to deal with the timeshare trap.

Room Tip: Upon check request to get your parking pass from the front desk directly to avoid the timeshare sale...

Thank you for your review, and for staying with us the past three years. We sincerely appreciate your patronage.
Our apologies if our concierge offended you in any way. We have a great deal of our guests inquire about our Lodges at Timber Ridge, so we do let our guests know of the option to tour that portion of our property. Our concierge’s primary role is to provide information about our resort, activities, show and attraction tickets, dining, and the overall Branson area. We know they typically do a great job of staying informed on the area and providing a great service to our guests. Once again our apologies if we did or said anything to offend you, as that surely was not our intent. Thank you again for your review and we sincerely hope to have the opportunity to be your host again for your next visit to Branson.

The resort was nice. The staff was very friendly. The room was very clean but kinda small for my liking not much room for moving around with 2 queen beds. I had a few things to iron and the only place to iron clothes was right in front of bathroom cause I needed that plug in for iron so I blocked the bathroom and the door to come in room kinda made it difficult for anyone who needed in bathroom or anyone who wanted in or out of the room.

We booked one night at the hotel for our return trip to Branson and Silver Dollar City (SDC was snowed out in April when we were here - freak snowstorm). The hotel and facilities were wonderful - the 2013 renovation was great. Spent the night and ate breakfast the next day at the breakfast buffet / restaurant. Everything was really nice.

However, when you get your room assignment, make sure you don't get stuck with the room(s) across from the exercise room and game room / laundry - that is also next to the lobby. It was WAY too noisy with people, machines, the ice maker, etc. My wife called around 11:00 pm and asked for help with the noise and things were better... until someone's workout at 6:00 am. Overall though - Very Good place.

Room Tip: Any room - just not across from exercise room and laundry / game room on the 1st floor of the hotel.
