The hotel was exceptionally clean and comfortable. The location is centered on the main highway for easy access to shows shopping and fun things to do in Branson.
Tip: Reserve Direct got us the best discounted price by booking our shows through them on line.

"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.

Staff was super-friendly, room was really quiet despite the fact it was right across from the elevator. Most importantly, our room was CLEAN! Will definitely stay at this hotel again in the future.

My wife and I go for value. We stayed here seven days. Marcia and Rob, at the front desk, greeted us warmly since check-in and became our concierges and friends during our stay. Excellent people. Lucy and Luis, took excellent care of the breakfast room. The ladies that cared for the rooms did excellent work. All of the room equipment functioned perfectly. One of the two elevators was not working one morning, but they had it working when we returned that evening. What else do you expect from a hotel?

This location is in need of a major facelift. The A/C smells of mildew, and the hotel is exceptionally loud. In season, this is best for families only as there are MANY loud children and impossible for business travelers to get much peace. Very small microwave and refrigerator I. The room. The bed was comfortable and the staff was very helpful.

Super clean rooms right in the middle of the Branson Strip. The room is somewhat small compared to other similarly priced rooms, but it is ok. Room has minifridge which is great for storing our drinks and leftovers! Got room as part of a time share program deal so it is actually better than i anticipated. Front desk staff is extremely friendly.

Summary: A hotel with good location and kind staff located on the main street for Branson, a little TLC in the rooms and elsewhere would make it an excellent property. Stayed at this hotel for 3 nights in June 2017. The hotel is located a block off the main drive ( 76 Country Blvd) in Branson. A vast amount of hotels, restaurants, stores etc. are located on this drive, so sometimes finding a location is difficult. It is easiest to pull into the Shoney's parking lot and proceed through there to the Holiday Inn Express. There is parking in the front and rear, though the parking in the rear is located on a severe incline. The entrance/lobby area is clean, spacious and looks relatively new. Check-in was easy and we were directed to our room on the 5th floor, with both elevator and stairs available (the ground floor you enter on is the 3rd floor, with outside pool located on the 1st floor). Our room had 2 double beds, was clean and had just enough space for the typical beds/dresser/desk/chair setup found in most mid-level hotels these days. The bathroom was also clean and stocked with the usual amenities. I did find the bar on the above toilet towel rack was not properly secure, and the rack itself seemed dated. All of the outside facing rooms have small patios, but we did not use ours. A classic continental breakfast of eggs, breakfast meats, cereal, etc. was served. The breakfast was constantly staffed by the hotel, hot items brought in and the area kept clean. No item seemed to run out during the 3 breakfasts we tried there, which is a sign of good staffing. Like most modern hotels, a business center with approximately 5-6 computers was available. This can be a great convenience for checking email, getting directions, etc., but the convenience factor takes a hit when the systems are old, outdated or haven't been properly updated. This was the case here, as the computer took a long time to upload a Google map and constantly had pop-ups occurring. The hotel does provide wi-fi and the login/password are provided with your room keys. As stated above, the hotel posses an outdoor pool. Though one staffer said it was heated to 80 degrees, that did not seem the case by the evening. The pool area is showing some signs of age, with the flooring and other areas needing small repairs. A 3-4 person hot tub is also available, and poolside towels are provided. All in all, this hotel gets good marks for cleanliness, location and good staff. With an investment of a little more $ on updating some room features and the pool area, the Holiday Inn Express would be an even better draw in Branson.

The rooms are pretty small compared to other hotels but the room was very clean and that is most important. Breakfast was decent. Pool was nice size. Great location on the main strip with connecting parking lot to Walmart and grocery store make it nice
