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 ...
... lots of mini golf and various entertainment shows. Thankfully, our campground was on the edge of town and we managed to avoid all the junk! Rain threatened just as we were setting up camp, but, thankfully, it avoided us. Dinner on the grill (beef kabobs), a new Shiner beer for Grant, a glass of wine for Bonnie, and some time reading ended the day about as perfect as possible!

... in the house. The outside walls she covered in stones and built rock ornaments outside with stones, rocks, crystals. There is also a huge perennial garden outside too.
Supper was a Chicken Curry wrap with a side salad. Nothing to write home about but I devoured the salad. My body must be telling me something.
Leaving tomorrow but have not decided where (too many choices)
... time I have scraped my footpeg is going up Pikes Peak in Colorado. I had so my fun...55 mph road with 15 & 25 mph curves. The yellow signs are recommended speeds aren't they? when I am running the curves all my focus is on the curve - where I am on the road, where the road is going, am I going fast enough and then when I am through it and setting up for the next currve I check on how I did it, could I have done better. I ...
... ride around town. The houses are great! Ranging from small palaces to the witches house on the left. I hope you enjoy them
Finally I had my first great supper at Porkies Barbecue (photo attached) where I had a very smoky 1/4 ribs and chicken. I was stuffed and happy when I had finished. :-)
Tomorrow a six hour tour of the Ozarks.

Historical Traveler Reviews Branson's Best
Welcome to branson
stayed at bransons best 3-17-05 thru 3-20-05 , check in was quick and and staff very nice . and helpful front desk was allways helpful and and made us felt welcome everytime they seen us. loved the icecream and pie, rooms clean, and cleaned them every day when we were out . and gave us pleanty of towels each day. the beds hurt my back as they were uncomfortlbe, water didnt stay hot as maney were taken showers. but still agood place to stay and not pricey. was to far to walk to 76 strip from hotel as i was told it was a short walk.
One of the Best
I discovered this hotel on the net last summer looking for one night and wish I could have stayed several more. The room was perfect and the service top notch. Then came BREAKFAST! The best I've ever had in a small hotel such as this. Breakfast and evening sweets too! All included in one low price. Their title is well deserved. They are also located in a less traffic area which makes it quiet at night and easier to get in and out of the parking lot. Great stay, I will be back.
I stayed at the Branson's Best Inn on March 11-13. It was my first time. It was excellent. The room ( a junior suite) was great. The breakfast was hot and great. And the ice cream wasn't cheesy like I thought it would be. It was hard and cold. Not soupy. They had cookies out to die for. The walls weren't paper thin. The beds were firm and comfortable, and the service was the best I have experienced in my 4 years going to Branson. I would definitely stay here again and recommend it to everyone who is staying in Branson. And the price was cheap. You get much more than you pay for.
Loved Branson's Best
We enjoyed our stay at Branson's Best. It is on Green Mountain Dr. The rooms were neat and clean. The staff was very helpful when we had questions. They had plenty of ice cream and cobbler after the shows every night. The breakfast had all kinds of items. If you wanted something light or a hot breakfast, they had it. We will stay there again. The price isn't bad either.
Great place to stay!!!
Branson's Best Motel was a great place to stay. We stayed for 2 nights and it was a wonderful visit. The location was the best part. If you have been to Branson before you know the traffic on 76 is a nightmare, Branson's Best is located on one of the alternate route's so it made it very easy to get from place to place. The motel itself was very very clean, which is what I look for. The bathroom's were immaculate. The outside property was cleaned several times a day, there were staff outside sweeping the sidewalks and parking lot all day. We had a room with two queen beds, and with two smaller kids it was a little cramped, but no big deal since we were not in our room much. The pool was clean. The breakfast was a typical hotel breakfast, but saved us from eating out and wasting an hour to eat out. Overall this was a great place to stay. VERY QUIET!! Would highly recommend.
Branson's Best, great for the price!
Just got back from Branson. We stayed at the Branson Best Hotel for 3 days/2 nights. The rooms where very clean. The pool was kind of small and only went to 5ft. But the kids seemed to like it. It was open from 9am-10pm. They served a nice breakfast of biscuts and gravy, fresh donuts and bread, along with eggs, waffles, and cream of wheat, and cereal. Along with coffee, juice and milk. Breakfast is served 6am-10am. Try to get there early to get early because once it runs out that is it. Nightly they served apple and black berry cober with ice cream. YUM!! Best get it when it is first brought out or you will only get ice cream from the machine, they do not bring out anymore once the first serving is gone. They also serve fresh cookies.
Check out was fast and friendly and the maids were very attentive and friendly. This hotel also sits next to a restaurant called Dockers, which is a big showboat style. They have a big buffet. It is easy to just walk there than drive, and up the hill about 300 ft is a gas station and liquor store.
I would stay here again. I was most impressed by how quite and safe it was there at night. Before I foget, the beds and pillows where very soft and we slept like babies at night.
The rooms where average size, clean and well maintained, even the bathrooms where spotless. We had two queen size beds in our room, hair dryer, iron board/iron and plenty of towels. No coffee maker in room but it was served 24/7 in the lobby. Ice maker, soda and water machines outside by main office. Soda and water cost 1.35, coffee free. If you want the daily paper it is also outside by the main office in a paper machine. There was T.V. and it had local channels and a few channels of HBO, CNN, weather channel and ESPN.
I will return here again. You can email me if you like.
Branson's Best is really the Best!!!!!
Great location, breakfast, and oh yes the ice cream and cobbler each evening!!!! Great staff. Have used their tickets service, always getting great seats. We have stayed there about 7 times. Their 3 day package can't be beat!!!!!! Been there once this year and going back in August.
This motel has become the standard by which we judge all other motels. It is by far our favorite motel anywhere.
Loved the extra's
I stayed at Branson Best Motel for 3 days. We had free cobbler and ice cream every evening. It was a delicious bedtime snack. We enjoyed the excellent breakfast. It was better than going out to eat, there was such a variety of food offered. I needed extra pillows and blankets.
The ladies at the front desk were very helpful and with a real smile. I enjoyed swimming in the pool. My room was very clean and tidy. My stay at this hotel was wonderful!
Branson's Best Motel was the best!
We stayed at Branson's Best Motel. It was the best motel we have stayed
at to date. Clean and very affordable. Their free breakfasts were
better than some we paid for! Always pleasant and helpful, the coffee
was always on, and the ice cream and cobbler every evening was great.
Will stay there again.
