Get your own fresh towels, set your trash outside your room, beds aren’t made, shower water runs hot to darn hot. Pool doesn’t work. I had to ask twice for service. Blaming Covid. I saw old dirt everywhere. Never again.
The shower temperature went from hot to molten lava everytime someone flushed a toilet. One of the queen beds box springs was sitting on top of a set of 2x4s and every night it would slip off the 2x4s and the whole bed would lean to one side. The bathroom vent was not functioning and because of this, the metal ceiling (who puts a metal ceiling in the bathroom?) was rusting because of the high humidity due to the fan not working. Don't expect any clean towels while your staying there. We went two days because there were no clean towels available.
After having a terrible experience at The Palace Veiw resort, we had our money refunded and were out looking for a room on a fri night. Not only was Ed by far, the most helpful and polite staff member we spoke to from any hotel, he was able to accommodate our needs and went above and beyond. The room was perfect. This Days Inn establishment has just made two new, lifelong customers!
I’m a cynical and veteran journalist, who has spent decades “catching” people, especially politicians, doing the wrong thing. After extensive trips across the fruited-plain, I’m writing a book on travel-related-issues. If you want a place to stay a night or longer anywhere close to Branson, drive to relax at the Days Inn, Green Mountain Road. You will be close to the action, without experiencing the congestion and noise I’ve encountered along Highway 76 (the strip!) If you like good Midwest entertainment, a variety of tasty dining options and plenty of nifty attractions, you likely can spend a lifetime of, at least, weekends…and never experience everything Branson area has to offer. Nashville isn’t even a close-second. I interviewed the new DI owner, Tony. He’s a veteran New York hotelier and has enjoyed serving many celebrities and pleasing big-city-demanding-guests. “In 1987, I was the bell-captain at the Albany Hilton, where I was taking Frank Sinatra’s bags to his suite. I appreciated talking with him as he blocked his face with a copy of The NY Times and his sunglasses from others,” Tony explained. “He offered me and my parents front-row seats to his show that evening. My parents were so happy as he was one of their favorite icons. Being up this close and personal was impressive to them.” He added that he also enjoyed meeting and helping Tom Petty, Jerry Garcia, ZZ Top, LL Kool J, and TLC. He continued: “Running a hotel on the Jersey Shore, I also hosted the entire cast of the “Sopranos” for two days as they filmed an episode. I was a huge fan, and meeting James Gandolfini was an honor. They all signed a poster for me and it was such a cool experience…since that was my favorite series at the time.” So far, he’s found Branson visitors to be a less “tough-crowd.” He has tremendous short- and long-term goals, many of which are being implemented. You’ll enjoy the right amenities now, and sense the improvements on the way…without experiencing annoying-construction. It’s being meticulously fashioned behind closed-doors. Even if you don’t have your exact-dates picked out, I suggest you call Dyann, a real gem front-desk manager, well in advance and book something. There’s a lenient change and cancellation policy. And, the rates are surprisingly affordable. I’m planning my next trip to Missouri’s best vacation option, and she will be hearing from me soon! If you get a chance, don’t hesitate to meet and listen to Tony’s stories. He’s a credit to his industry!…
Stayed here in late April first part of May. Was told I had to use the stairs that the elevator was for employees only. The pool wasn’t operational. Noticed paint shards on the carpet going up the stairs and in hallway. Room was clean noticed in bathroom that it looked like some type of paint on the mirror. I know this is an older hotel but come on. Won’t stay here again Grand Oaks will get my money.
