I spent two nights in this Fairfield Inn in Branson, Missouri. I was generally unimpressed with the property, but I wouldn't say it had any fatal flaw.
ROOMS: The room we were assigned had a dated, rather spartan feel. There are two beds, a small desk and chair, and pretty much nothing else. Forget a couch to sit on. The room always had a slightly musky smell...something that was just off a little bit. Bathroom was adequate, but nothing to write home a bit. High threshold to step into the tub for a shower, which could be a problem for older travellers (the prime market for Branson).
LOCATION: Just fine. Located near a busy road...walking distance to a few things, but a little bit outside of the main strip of theaters and probably a 15-20 minute drive to "downtown" depending on traffic.
SERVICE: Really a mixed bag. The front desk staff was rather uneven. I waited a good 5 minutes for someone to turn up at first, and then I had the distinct feeling I was interrupting her. Other staff were more friendly, but things like asking for a restaurant recommendation seemed to be rather challenging.
AMENITIES: Well, nothing really other than a free breakfast. The continental breakfast was a pretty good spread and breakfast staff provided very good and friendly service. The elevator is slow! One elevator that's definitely not in a rush. Especially problematic given that this hotel often hosts tour groups.
MISC: I was offended not to be offended. I found it very strange that this property had an electronic display at the front desk that listed the names of their elite members. I would have been uncomfortable with this. But I was slightly offended that they didn't recognize my gold status at all with it. So I was amusingly slightly offended that I wasn't offended. In terms of gold benefits there were none. If there was a room upgrade to be had, I certainly did not get it.
Overall, it's an adequate property for sleeping, but I sure wouldn't consider this a place I'd want to spend any extra time as the rooms are just not configured for it.
