We are at Susie's and will be staying here until next week and we have decided to go to Death Valley next week. We have never been there and the weather is pretty decent this time of year. We are learning to relax as we keep telling ourselves that we are in no hurry. Dad and I did go down to the ocean yesterday, it never seems to lose its beauty no matter how many times I've seen it. We'll I'll write again after Death Valley Love to you ...
... br> Buffalo National River, Harrison, Arkansas was the first to be designated as a "National River" in 1972. While we were visiting, we happened to come upon a large group of "senior" campers (tenting), as part of a group of volunteers who clean up our major rivers. Their group was Project A.W.A.R.E. It is naturally a wonderful setting for river float trips, hunting, hiking, scenic vistas, horseback riding and camping, but we visited in the ...
Our plans for today was just to go out for a good meal and shop. We accomplished both. We had steak and lobster at Outback, yum! Last time we will do that in maybe forever but it was a good choice as the dinner theater we were going to go to had food I couldn't eat anyway. Didn't buy anything but had ...
... dancing and playing four to five instruments each. All family-friendly venues. They grow large families in the Ozarks! Winners and runner-ups from shows such as The Voice, America's Got Talent and Idol all have a place in Branson. And who comes? Middle America. Car and bus loads of folks from Nebraska, Wyoming, Idaho, Tennessee, Kentucky, Arkansas, Indiana, Missouri, Montana and Oklahoma. It's obvious when someone from the extreme east or west coasts ...
... cool. Drove along the strip-King Kong on a building, the Titanic, all flashy stuff to get your attention. The show houses aren't that large compared to Las Vegas.

Historical Traveler Reviews Ramada Inn Branson
We stayed in the Ramada in Branson, Mo. recently for several days. The room was clean and well maintained daily. The management and staff were courteous and helpful. Especially, the Manager, Mr. David Herd. Our car broke down the day before we were scheduled to leave. Parts had to be flown in from out of the area and took a while to arrive and install. We had no place to go the day we were to leave. Mr. Herd realized our plight and graciouslly offered the room to us until the repairs were scheduled to be completed. Our kids had a place to be and not walking the streets for several hours with us. Further, Mr. Herd offered to drive us to the mechanic when the vehicle was fixed. He knew we were running low on cash and couldn't afford another day of renting a car! I think this type of customer service should be complemented and recognized! Are you listening Ramada? I would hope anyone looking at a quality stay in the Branson, Mo. area would look seriously at Mr. Herd's Ramada. We'd do it again! Thank You!
Had a great stay
We a had a great time at the Ramada and the rooms were clean and quiet. Location was close to the shows we wanted to see.
Made internet reservations to include one handicapped room as well as regular room. Website said no king beds available but showed handicapped rooms available. Upon arrival were told no handicap rooms available and that this hotel "doesn't guarantee availability of anything reserved over the internet." Well what good is an internet reservation then!?!?!? Was told that we'd get a break on the room because of this lack of availability but then were told "you'll have to come back and talk to the manager because I don't have any authority to change the price."
Dirty Sheets and Towels -- two thumbs down
The only good part about this hotel was its location near the highway and the two pools. Do not stay here -- yuck!
Friendly staff, Big property
We had a great time at the Ramada. The staff saved us time/money and we could walk to the Dixie Stampede. Make sure to ask for maps and show discounts. The rooms were very clean and the breakfast was great.
Nice Lobby....but the rest is old.
The lobby next to the strip is very nice and new. But the hotel rooms are old and sort of scary. I didn't find the staff particular friendly either. There are many better places to stay in Branson.
A third rate hotel at best
If you're planning a trip to Branson, stay somewhere else! We just got back from a two-day trip there. The beds were extremely uncomfortable, the towels were like paper sacks, and the showers had absolutely no water pressure. I would pay a little more and upgrade to a better hotel. They really need to renovate this place.
Not what promised.
I was promised an oversized room with 2 queen size beds and a pull out sofa. When we arrived, the room given only had 2 queen sized beds. When I called the front desk, they stated that their oversized rooms were unavailable and if they did have one it would be $10 more a night. I called their customer service center and filed a complaint to which the hotel hasn't responded. The hotel also advertised a deluxe breakfast but we only received a basic breakfast with coffee (no juice or water) due to other plans for their breakfast area. The room was clean but that is the only good thing I can say.
Great Place to Stay
I had a great time in Branson. I wish people in my area were as friendly as the staff at the Ramada. I recommend the Ramada highly
Trouble with reservations
Made reservations nearly 1 year in advance for 2 handicap accessible rooms for special event in May (Mardi Gras in May). Was assured on a couple of occasions that rooms wold be on ground floor. When we arrived, rooms were on 4th floor (no elevator) & was told no handicap rooms available. Ramada would not refund money (rooms were prepaid) because we did not cancel in advance. Also found 3 cockroaches in room.
If you are handicapped, would advise not to take word of reservationist that a room will be available if you book in advance.
