"Good family suite"
August, 2018
I really liked the family suite. The rooms were clean and well laid out. They have surprisingly comfortable beds. The complimentary breakfast was very good. The pool is large, but not deep, it was only 5 ft. In the deepest part.

"Clean and Friendly"
April, 2016
The staff were very friendly and quick to deal with any issues we had. The room was clean. Overall the hotel was kept up pretty well. Its an older building, so only so much up keep that can be done. While it wasn't bad, my family won't be staying here again.

This hotel is on the side of a hill. When you enter the lobby you are actually on the third floor. There are two floors below and one above the lobby. The hotel is an older hotel but it was clean. The front desk staff was friendly and helpful. The room was quiet and clean. Breakfast was you typical Holiday Inn express breakfast which was fine. I would stay here again.

"This Hotel is in Desperate Need of An Update"
TripAdvisor user rating 2 out of 5
Reviewed September 20, 2018 NEW
In the past I’ve tried staying at some of the cute, non-chain hotels in Branson and they have been less than desirable. So, when my daughter and I decided to make a last minute trip to Branson, I chose this Holiday Inn Express because I thought I knew what to expect and it was conveniently located. Online the rooms look like any other current Holiday Inn Express. Inside the halls are dark and dreary with the feel of a basement ( we were 2 floors down from the lobby)Our hall was heavily scented with vanilla, which smelled awful. When we arrived at our room the smell got worse—it smelled as if someone who had been backed up for weeks had gone to the bathroom in there. The carpets were stained with dark brown spots. The bathroom door was literally stapled together with foam bulging from the sides. The top bedding was stained. The bathroom was very small and cramped. The awful smell seemed to be coming from around the entry area and not the bathroom. You got a whiff every time you came and went. That is also where the majority of the brown stains were...hmmm. Even after cleaning what I could myself, I didn’t feel comfortable touching anything or laying anything down in the room. It just felt filthy. Also, the first morning the phone rang a single time, twice before 8 am waking us up!!! We had gone to sleep around 2:30 am, and got in late the night before, and that’s why I hadn’t asked to be moved. The second morning the phone rang once around 9:30 am. I was up that time, but it was still a nuisance! If they don’t plan to update the rooms, they could at least buy a new bathroom door and replace the disgusting carpet, which probably houses the odor! It’s not that difficult and would make the place feel cleaner! The only good thing I can say is the beds were comfortable and the sheets looked clean.
