... games. We then drove to the "Historic District". Beautiful scenery surrounded the White River but the 'historic' part left a lot to be desired. It was really an outdoor strip mall with many contemporary stores. Steve and the kids enjoyed go-karting to end the evening. Tomorrow (7/10) Will turns 15 and we're headed to St. Louis to see a Cardinals game. Happy Birthday Will! ...
... 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!

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 :-).

Historical Traveler Reviews Welk Resort Branson
Loved it! Loved it! Loved it!
We had a marvelous time at the Welk Resort in Branson. What a beautiful place! Lot's of flowers and nice landscaping, very scenic and relaxing setting. The staff was GREAT...they do everything there including setting up all your show tickets and attractions, most of them were even discounted. We saw the Darren Romeo show at the huge onsite theatre, what an entertainer. We also enjoyed a wonderful breakfast each morning in their restaurant as well as dinner one night. We stayed on one of their vacation packages, which included all of the above and more, we even got a free gas card which we used to fill our tank up as we left for home. This was not our first stay there and it certainly won't be our last. We would highly recommend the Welk Resort to anyone coming to Branson.
i can't believe anybody would not like this hotel, and someone having snakes in their room. Well, me and my family went to silver dollar city and dolly pardon's dixie stampede, we had a wonderful time. i think this hotel should be a four star.we will come back to branson for vacation and we will probably stay at this hotel again.
NOT A 3 STAR
This hotel is definitely NOT a 3 Star Hotel. We booked through an internet site and the front desk was very snotty about it, they gave us the worst room on site, and the hotel was EMPTY!!! I would not suggest staying here, there are MANY places that are MUCH better!!!!
On the Uspide the room was very clean, and the cleaning lady was extrememly nice!
We went there for the 2004 Bransonfest, and everything was a disappointment. We were billed several times for the same stay, the restaurant was never ready to serve, staff was rude, and the bar personnel acted like we should not even have come in. The hotel was nice enough, but all the problems with the billing and the staff made the experience one we do not want to go through again, and we cannot honestly recommend this hotel to anyone. As a matter of fact, we go out of our way to un-recommend it to people!
Tis wonderful wonderful, as Lawrence used to say
Want to share....visited recently and just loved the hotel and it being nestled amongst the foothills. It was quiet, a nice change from busy busy hwy 76, and yet within 5 to 10 min driving to anything we wanted to see on 76 or the Lake. Oh we did see the "Romeo" show and was excellent. Look forward to staying and seeing the Welk show this fall as I hear its the last year.
Room was very clean and staff was friendly. I lost something and they even found it for me. Food was as I expected, very tasty and flavorful.
Good news and bad news !!
The good news the place is kept very clean and I didn't see any snakes. If you are worried about the snake reviews request a upper floor room. All the staff were very friendly.
The bad news the food in the restaurant was not very good. I had to send my dinner back twice because they screwed up my order.
I totally agree with the previous review about having tip envelopes in the rooms, for the price you are paying for these rooms it should be the hotels responsibility to pay their employees accordingly.
Oh my gosh '2 baby snakes in our bathroom!!!!'
I stayed at the Lawrence Welk Resort in Branson with my Fiance, the second week of July. My first thoughts of the hotel around the front entrance is that it seemed to look pretty. We got checked in and went straight to our room down in the first floor,as we get in there it seemed average "not really worth what we paid but clean". We got our stuff in there and headed out to watch a show on the strip. We got back to our room after 11pm and went to bed. In the middle of the night about 5 am I woke up to use the bathroom, I did not notice anything in there at first but as I was walking toward the door to leave I seen one of the 2 snakes turn around and move back the other direction, I freaked out there were 2 small snakes in that bathroom, there looked young but a snake is a snake and it scared the daylights out of me, my fiance he tried to ring the front desk but no person would answer, my guess is that they were probablky sleeping on the job. We shut the bathoom door put out pillows in front and left the keys in the room and took off!!!!!!!! We were heading to Eureka Springs that morning anyhow we just left earlier than we planned originally. No sense in getting a refund just getting the HECK out of there was good enough for me. If you notice when you are entering and exciting this property there is a very large deep canyon like hole about 100 feet wide that is overgrown with brush near the rear of the hotel, it is no wonder we saw snakes in our room. WELK keep the property around you groomed and maybe the snakes won't like it there so much, oooooh just thinking about this stay gives me the creeps. You know it is funny I never seen the snake review by other person until I went to submit this review, I wish now I had before I booked this stay, it sure would have saved some scary memories.
I was hesitant as well when I read about the snake in the room. However, I was at this resort for 5 nights and was pleasantly surprised. The property was clean and nicely landscaped. My room overlooked the pool which was noisy during the day. The pool closed at 10 but a couple nights there were loud people in the pool after 10. One call to the front desk and the noise was stopped. The only negative thing happened at check out. I had paid cash for all meals yet one meal appeared on my bill. After discussion with the front desk person, the charge was removed. I would consider staying at this property again as it was a decent value for the price paid.
Wonderful, Beautiful, Peaceful Hotel!!!
We stayed at the Welk Resort from June 9-13, 2004. I will be honest and say that I was a little worried after the last review involving the snake, but we had a great time.
The hotel does look alot the same as it does on the website. Our room was very nice, it wasn't huge and the beds were normal sized, but it was nice and clean. To me the cleanliness is most important. The pool and outdoor area was incredibly gorgeous and well landscaped. It was absolutely beautiful and was so nice and quite compared to the busy strip. This hotel was also located near both of the alternate routes around 76
so it was very conveniently located for everything even though it was a couple miles off of 76.
My only complaints about this hotel would be that they currently don't offer a continental breakfast and their staff leaves tip envelopes in your room. I do not look foundly on someone suggesting I tip them, and the staff was talking about the tip collections as I walked down the hallway, which I felt was also inappropriate, but other than that the place was great!
Snake in our room!!!
I was traveling with my four year old son, and two teenage nephews to branson for a 2 day get away. We stayed at the Welk resort in Branson. My first impression I got of the Hotel was not of what I was expecting, for some reason the photos on the internet seemed to be much nicer than what I actually seen in person, but we were here to have an exciting 2 days together, and exciting it was. When we arrived to our room, my 4 year old son pulled the curtains back to see the view of the swimming pool near our room which was 121, he backed away from the window and said "Daddy a snake", so I went to the window thinking the snake was on the grass outside the room between the window and the pool, wrong!!! As soon as I got near the window and pulled back the right side of the curtain the snake lunged to bite between and me and my son (unsuccessfull thank god) from where he was sitting on the window sill IN OUR ROOM! I told the kids to get there stuff we were leaving, I went back upstairs and asked for a refund, and explained the problem, they refused to offer any refund but instead offered and free breakfast at their resturaunt for the next morning, and to move us to another room. I did not have much to say as I thought it sure was terrible of them not to give my money back since I was not in the room 2 minutes before the snake incident. So we stayed in another room where all the kids were afraid to go to sleep in fear of seeing another 3 foot snake in there too. So the next morning we ate their horrible breakfast on them, and checked out of the room. I am not sure if the management caught the snake they confirmed seeing it in our room after they put us in another, and said they were still trying to catch it, they tried to downplay to me that they thought it was non venomous, even though it looked and awfull lot like a venomous snake I have seen before in the past, but I am not the Croc Hunter, all I know is poisionous or not, it should not be in the room. I am disapointed at the Welk Resort for not handling this better, they should have without a doubt gave us our money back so we could have stayed someplace else. Also another note these Queen bed rooms are nothing to get excited over I stay in nicer rooms at the Super 8, or Best western for around $30 a night, how the Welk resort gets away with charging what they do for what they have is beyond me, it is from my personal experience that I would not recommend this property to anyone to stay in, in the future.
