"Total Incompetence"
August, 2016
Don’t Waste Your Time, Don’t Waste your Money and Don’t Risk Your Trip On This Rat Trap.

If it were possible to give negative stars for a place, this place would earn negative stars. I have traveled to nearly every state in the United States; I have stayed in numerous hotels, motels and bed and breakfasts. In fact, I have stayed in Branson many times at different hotels. I have never experienced the level of incompetence that I just experienced here at Branson Towers.

First, we had prepaid for our room for three nights; Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Due to unforeseen problems, we were unable to make it to Branson on Thursday. I called Branson Towers, and told them that we would not be there Thursday, but that we would be there early Friday morning. I further told them that since we had prepaid for Thursday night, and that it was too late for a cancellation refund for Thursday, that I expected the room to be held empty and that we would be able to check in early Friday. (Their normal check in time is 3:00 pm. After some discussion as to whether this was right or wrong, the person I called did tell me that my room would be kept clean and empty, and that we would be able to check in before 3:00 pm.

Well, bad luck continued to plague us on Friday, and we did not actually arrive at Branson until 1:00 pm. We were tired and somewhat distort, but at least we could check in go to our room, shower and perhaps catch a nap before our show that evening.

When I walked up to the front desk, a woman and four children were standing there, all wearing bathing suits and dripping wet. The woman was screaming at the two ladies behind the desk, “We are staying here a week, and this is costing us over $500.00. So far you have done noting but inconvenience us, and this is a big inconvenience. We need to shower and get ready for dinner and a show.” She screamed, then having only been told “Mam we are sorry”, she and her daughters walked away. I had no idea what that conversation was about, but it concerned me.

I told the lady behind the desk that I was there to check in, and she immediately told me I would have to leave and return at 3:00 pm. I told her that I had no intention of leaving and checking in later, and about the conversation I had the night before with the person behind the desk. I told her that my room had been prepaid for Thursday, and that I had been assured that it would be clean and empty when I arrived Friday. She looked on her computer, and said you are in luck; “We do have a room for you that has just been cleaned.”

The walk down the hall to the room was disappointing, the carpet was filthy and looked as though it needed to be removed and replaced. Once in our room, it was somewhat a disappointment. Our bed sloped from a high point at the foot, to a lower point at the head.
However, everything else was adequate, and we were now too tired to care much. By the time the excitement and negotiations were over, and we had moved our things into the room it was not 2:00 pm. Time for a badly needed shower and some relaxation time before dinner.
I got into the shower first, because I take less time in the shower than my wife. There was no HOT WATER. I got out of the shower, and called the front desk. When I told them that my room had no hot water, they said; “Yes we know. There was some sort of emergency this morning, and our maintenance people are working on the problem.” I ask if they had an idea of when the problem would be resolved, and they told me that they expected to be finished in about two more hours.

Now, I’m not a plumber or an electrician. I am a retired engineer. However, I have done a great deal of plumbing and electrical maintenance in my years. In fact, I have had more that one hot water heater fail in my life. Once I had one fail at 8:00 pm one night. I drove to Lowe’s purchased a new one, drove home and changed heaters and had the water back on to my house all in less than two hours.

Oh well, things happen. We decided to take a short nap then go to a restaurant and eat (Stinky), then come back and shower before the show. We did go eat (Stinky), we did come back, we did go to the show in fresh cloths and (Stinky). When we returned to our room, we did have hot water. I don’t know when they actually got it fixed.

Saturday morning, we wert down for breakfast at around 7:00 am. There was a police officer at the front desk taking a report, and another driving around the parking lot. (I should note here, the outside doors that we used to enter the building had no locks. Anyone could come and go freely.) I don’t know what the police were doing, don’t even care, but it was a little unsettling.

Saturday evening, we went to an early show, and stopped for dinner on the way back to our room. Not really having the time to catch up on rest, we were exhausted when we arrived back at out room. We showered, and went to bed early, around 10:15 pm.

At 11:45 pm, I was awakened by the sound of someone messing with our door coupled with a vigorous shaking from my wife. I got out of bed and walked to the door, and arrived just as the door opened. Luckily for both the person who had just opened my door and me, my wife had earlier latched the safety latch on the door. The door was opened as far as it could be opened with the safety latch in place. However, fingers were sticking through the door and trying to manipulate the latch. I slammed the door closed on the fingers, and shouted; “What in the hell do you think you are doing!”

I heard a lady say to another person, “They must have given us the key card to the wrong room.” Then I heard them walk away. Now, earlier I said luckily the safety latch was latched. I mean, had the latch not been latched and these people had walked into my room, someone would have gone to the hospital and someone else would have probably gone to jail. All over the incompetence of the people who were at the front desk.

I called the front desk, and shouted; “Can you tell me how in the hell someone could get a key card to my room.” To which the desk clerk replied, “What is your name?” I told her my name, and she ask, “Did you extend your stay?” To which I replied, “No, I did not need to extend my stay, I am prepaid through tonight, and leaving in the morning.” To which she replied, “Someone told me you had checked out and were gone.” To which I replied, “How in the hell could that have happened, were my key cards turned in?” To which she replied, “I don’t know, but I will look into it.” To which I replied, “You do that, and you had better make damn sure that no one else gets a key to this room tonight.”

I don’t know, as far as my wife and I go, we will never again make the mistake of staying here. However, if you enjoy the excitement and comedy of incompetence and inconvenience, then you might enjoy this place. If not, then you should probably look for something else.

"Great hotel!"
June, 2016
This was our first trip to Branson. This hotel did not disappoint. Clean rooms, great breakfast, and soft mattresses. I loved that it is actually a hotel. I felt more secure than just staying in a motel. (There are tons of motels in Branson). Staff was very nice, and we had NO problems there. Very reasonably priced as well. I would stay again when/if we travel to Branson.

"Best hotel in Branson"
March, 2015
We stayed in two different hotels during our stay and Branson Towers is the best.hotel.ever. The beds were amazingly comfortable. The rooms were clean. While the pool was outside of main building, it wasn't out of the way or too far from the main building. Breakfast was good. They had food that my kids will eat so that's a bonus. it is spacious enough to not feel crowded with the spring break crew. The location was a plus. Away from the hustle and noise of the strip but close enough for easy access. The pool was well maintained, my only problem was that the "ft" signs seemed inaccurate. Where it said 5Ft, I could barely touch. And my 6 and 7 year old couldn't touch in the 3 feet (and they are taller than 3ft.) We will be back!! We've already made reservations for June.

We stayed at the Branson towers for a short getaway with the kids and grandparents. The hotel was clean and the staff was friendly and helpful. The Ice Cream Social was a nice touch too. The boys really enjoyed the amenities including the game room and the pool. We absolutely love the location... A short drive from everything we wanted and a lot less traffic to navigate through to get in and out of the location.

"Branson Towers"
March, 2015
Branson Towers was a nice hotel, friendly and helpful staff. Pool was clean, rooms were clean. Slightly disappointed that the pool was not under the same roof as the rooms, but it was just a few steps away. In summer it wouldn't matter, but there was snow on the ground. The ice cream social and player piano with fire in the fireplace was a nice touch.

"Fun Weekend!"
March, 2015
This hotel was very very nice! read some reviews online and It kind of worried me. When we got there the lady behind the counter was very nice helped me get all set up! Rooms were very nice and spacious. Beds were comfy and breakfast was very good! Nice big pool area as well! Ice cream social at night was fun for the kids. I think it was like $2 for a sundae.

This is a dated but very clean hotel which is really what matters. We stayed the first weekend in December and it was very quiet and we had no complaints. The complimentary breakfast was wonderful. One of us had the waffles and the other had biscuits, gravy and sausage. I would recommend this hotel to others.

The ice cream social (extra cost) and clean rooms are the best parts of the hotel. The breakfast room isn't as clean, is staffed with grumpy people and never has adequate food. We've stayed there twice this month and breakfast was never sufficient.

"Good hotel"
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5
Reviewed December 17, 2017
This was a clean, friendly hotel. No complaints about the room or staff. Breakfast was good and consisted of biscuits, gravy, sausage, eggs, fruit, muffins, donuts, bagels, cereal, and waffles. While the pool is an indoor pool, you have to walk a very short distance outside to get to the pool. Not ideal in the winter. The pool also had a tremendous amount of chlorine. Many red eyes came out of the pool. We also had an issue at checkout. We were charged more than our confirmed rate per night. We went back once we caught the mistake and the front desk clerk took care of the error quickly and apologized for the trouble. She also corrected the bills of other people we were traveling with. Which raised a concern that it probably happens to a lot of people that don’t notice. Overall, it was a good stay and we might stay again in the summer. But we will check our bill thoroughly before leaving.

"DON'T STAY HERE!!!"
TripAdvisor user rating 1 out of 5
Reviewed November 22, 2017
Stayed 2 nights, had no working phone in room so had to call front desk on cell. Was told phone co. had to turn it on. Lol Real problem was the cheap construction of the hotel, it looks pretty but the floors creaked so bad we couldn't sleep. The room above us was up til at least 330a and you could hear every step he took because the floor popped constantly. And it was Loud!! I even took a recording of it so management could hear. We also noticed our floor popped also but not as bad. After we called at 330a it stopped. Couldn't go back to sleep though and could hear the guy snoring. Called to get a late check out of 1230p, 1100a normal checkout. Could hear a female say 'that's too late', but he gave it to us. Thought we could sleep after that, nope. Guy is up at 7am walking around again. So we end up going down to checkout at 1105a. I of course asked for a discount but was told no, manager was gone, this was a Wed. and they couldn't give me one. B.S. because I used to work at top of line hotel and you can at checkout, they do it all the time!! When I got upset the lady said well we didn't charge you for the late checkout!! Lol, honestly? We had a 1230p late check out and it was 1105a. !!!
