"Family Vacation"
Reviewed October, 2015
We loved this resort and will definitely tell others and stay here again in the future. It was so kid friendly, yet, things for adults to do as well. The resort was located in a spot where you could miss all of the main traffic and still get to all of the hot spots fairly quick. Two thumbs up...
Tip: Bring swimming suits and prepare to have fun....

"Great indoor fun!"
Reviewed July, 2015
We picked a rainy weekend to travel to Branson and our White Water plans had to be cancelled. It was great to be able to allow my kids to get some water time! They had a blast while I enjoyed the jacuzzi. And the staff was very nice and helpful.

"Great Place to Stay"
Reviewed January, 2015
We had the pleasure of booking this hotel thru Reserve Branson. We had no idea what to expect and were pleasantly surprised!! Our young family of 4 had a GREAT time at Welk Resort Hotel & Splashatorium. We were fortunate enough to have amazing weather in October, even swam outside. My husband, the girls and I had a wonderful time at Splashatorium (with snow cones!) and enjoyed our round of mini-golf. We have stayed at several places in Branson, this is one of our favorites.
Tip: Family Friendly!

"Great place to relax after busy day in Branson"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed May 18, 2016 NEW

The hotel was perfect for our needs. We had a room for the wife and I and a room for our daughter's family. The desk agent made sure our rooms adjoined and were in a quiet spot. After running ourselves ragged trying to see the sights of Branson, this was the perfect place to relax. Rooms were big, clean and quiet. The pool area and splashatorium were clean and perfect for young ones. They offered activities like s'mores by the fire and ice cream sundae building. This would be a great place to come for a family vacation if there wasn't anything to do in Branson. The staff was great and we would definitely recommend this hotel

Check in was really a bad experience. Room was clean but my back still isn't right after spending 2 nights on there mattress so my back hurt during my stay and it made for a terrible ride home. Room was small . It didn't seem like they were concerned about first impressions. Also i had to park 2 lots away from my entrance to the hotel.For $90 a night i am sure i could have found a better palce.

We had purchased a night at a home show with the promise of getting tickets to baseball games. When we got to our room, I found a dirty towel on the countertop in the bathroom. I also saw pretzel crumbs in the corner behind the door to the room. The only reason I'm rating this as very good as opposed to average was the staff at the front desk. I've paid the same price for better rooms elsewhere. The concierge seem to be non-existent as there was never anyone at the desk. I needed to use the fitness center but it didn't open until 7 am. I know I was on vacation, but I was in training for an athletic event and still had to work out. I ended up using a beat-up treadmill they had in a converted guest room on the first floor that really banged up my knees. We didn't eat at the restaurant so I have no idea how the food was or the service related to it. We did sit through their sales presentation. While I see the value in a program such as theirs, I'm not convinced theirs is the one to select.

Branson has so many things to do but if you don't feel like going out, the kids will have plenty of fun on the resort. There is an activities office with a calendar that will keep you busy, fun indoor-outdoor pool and mini golf! George in activities was great as we were part of a cupcake wars challenge.

Reviewed May 06, 2016 NEW

Beds are hard as a board so I couldn't sleep and the pillows are terrible so bring your own. No fan in the room or in the bathroom( really! How are you suppose to use the bathroom in a small hotel room without a fan in the bathroom) the indoor pool was fairly nice but had limited seating, only has one slide. Only good thing so far is the coffee (Seattle's best). Really hope the breakfast that wasn't included is decent. Will never book here again
