Travel Blogs from Branson
Driving down the main street to Branson, MO reminded us of 'the strip' in Las Vegas-just with a country music flair. There are many shows here-variety, comedy, gospel music, country music, and magic shows to name a few. Our Lodge is a wonderful respite from the main street-spacious room, beautiful pool and lots of amenities. "Monkey in the middle" and volleyball were ...
... encountered more ticks than the 2 of us have seen in a very long time. And yes, we did use a good amount of Deep Woods Off. The little buggers liked us anyway! After leaving Pea Ridge, we headed to our campground in Branson, MO. Almost immediately upon crossing the state line the terrain changed from Ozark mountains to relatively flat farmland...definitely a change from what we've seen the past couple of days. Branson is supposedly a bit like Gatlinburg, TN...a big tourist ...
Beautiful day today about 30C with low humidity, great for my last tour of the area. Today I thought I would take it easy and take a relaxed journey this time. Well, that lasted about two curves and then I poured on the heat :-).
Reminiscing about yesterdays trip and today's, I saw more poverty in Southern Missouri (villages made up of old house trailers, Dollar General and ...
... learning when I am riding.
The tour was not too picturesque. Trees when I was in the forest and farms when out. The 'mountains' are not bit or have interesting rock formations so not too many photo's. Of course there is the food shot where I was at a Mexican restaurant built into a hill. I had a Bloody mary because there was no Bavarian beer on tap ;-)
Tomorrow I;m still her in Eureka Springs, off on another tour.
After getting up early to quit the motel and get to McD's to deliver yesterdays blog I had an easy three hour ride to Eureka Springs where I planned to stay for three nights. Not having reservtions (never do) I found this place Sherwood Court Inn where I booked a cabin instead of the usual motel room. Have posted pice for you ladies to check ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Grand Victorian Branson
Staff was friendly and helpful. Stayed out too late and didn't get a chance to check out the breakfast. Room was fantastic...we had a king suite. The bed squeaked, but we could live with that. The fridge and microwave in the room was nice.
Overall, we would definately stay here again. It was convenient to many area attractions and had all we could want with a hotel.
My family & I stayed at the Hotel Grand Victorian as a group and at a group rate of 70 something a night. For my husband & I and our 4 children, we found the hotel very comfortable. We had plenty of towles, pillows, & coffee upon request. Our crib was in the room when we arrived. The room was very clean as were the hallways, breakfast area, pool, and everthing else I came across. We found the breakfast to very fullfilling as we went back for 2nds & 3rds. They keep putting food out until breakfast time is over. Thank God for small favors! The staff was quite friendly and we had a problem with our key which was a bit of an inconveinence but they had maintenence checking it first thing the next morning. No biggie. Upon checking out we received a 20% savings coupon on our visit. Overall very pleasant experience.
My husband and I stayed here for our anniversary in March. Such a nice room, and nice, friendly staff. Loved the "balcony room". Would definitely stay here again!
My husband and I stayed there for one week in April of 2004. Found it to be very comfortable and clean. The maid service was great everyday. The continental breakfast was good but could use a change daily for those of us staying long term. Maybe even just a change of fruit would help. Friendly service and the atmosphere was very relaxing with the piped in music in the halls. Would recommend this highly. Close to everything! First trip to Branson and we just loved it!!!
Very convenient, good value for the price. Wanted to stay in the Chateau on The Lake but changed our mind because of the distance. We made a good decission. The next time we will do it again.
Well my first impression was.. DANNG (hehe) it has very nice curb appeal. The indoor pool was definately VERY relaxing, continental breakfast was not the best but nevertheless it was very good. The staff was extremely nice (especially keith) haha, but the guests were.. um not too nice. I think it is a great place for families that aren't stuck up and old.
Worst stay in Branson
Stayed during Christmas holidays. Church groups there running up and down the halls til after midnight - management said they could be up til 11 - left early on 12-28 and were promised a refund - it is now 2-13 and i still havent gotten a call back - don't hold your breath - then they basically blame me for no refund - never stay here.
The room is pretty average, but the two pool areas are very nice. One is an indoor pool in what looks like an enclosed gazebo and has screens on all the windows to make you feel like you are outside but without the bugs and blazing hot sun. The indoor pool area was always stocked with fresh towels, and there is even a fireplace in the pool room that would be great in the winter. The outdoor pool is smaller but still nice. The continental breakfast was bad, but the location of the hotel is good. The outlet malls are next door.
This hotel is definately the best one I've ever stayed at. The people are friendly and the prices are reasonable. They have an awesome pool! I would recommend this hotel to ANYONE!
In the center of it all
We have stayed here several times and it is worth the extra money to stay here. Right next door to Dennys so you can grab some good breakfast before you head out for a long day of fun. Across the street "Ride the Ducks". Also Wal-Mart and a Grocery Store are across the street so you can fill your refrigerator in the hotel room with junk food. Another really good place to eat is some colonial style restaurant to the east of the hotel within walking distance. They have a cool buffet there.
