"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.

The lobby was very nice with cookies,cider, and coffee available when we checked into the hotel. We phoned ahead and they had the keys ready for us to hand out to our group. The room had a connecting room with a hot tub in the room. It was a very nice large room. The manager even handed out candy to our bus on the check out from the hotel. When you have a room on the second floor to remember you are checking in on 3rd floor and have to go down. It is a little confusing. We had 14 rooms. One room did have trouble with the shower,but it was fixed.

"IHG needs to consider building a new Holiday Inn Express in Branson"
TripAdvisor user rating 2 out of 5
Reviewed October 15, 2019
The lobby area looks nice and inviting. This Holiday Inn Express has the smallest rooms we have ever seen in an IHG branded hotel. The furnishings looked old and tired as did the carpeting. It just did not look and feel very clean. The bathroom was very tiny and the tub looked so worn out. Everything in the room looked past its prime. This place just did not feel like a Holiday Inn Express.

Room .. rather small, very small bathroom. Comfortable beds and pillows. Clean room. We were in 516. Looking out the front of the hotel. Would definitely ask for a room toward the back or side. They have flood lights that came into the room. Even with the shades down it very noticeable. But good for safety in the parking lot ! We did like the little balcony and being by the elevator had no outside noise! Breakfast was great and the lady working there was so kind to everyone! Never left hungry ! The pool was cold but once use to it enjoyed it. We were the only ones there but noticed it could use a good scrubbing. Plenty of clean beach towels were available. Some room maintenance would be recommended but would consider staying here again. With a room to the back or side .. loved 5th floor.

Warning! Warning! Warning! Please read before staying at this Holiday Inn Express. I have been a Holiday Inn Express rewards member for five or six years. I try to stay in a Holiday Inn Express whenever I can because of this and most of the time they are pretty good. I have never had an experience in one to write a review like this. Most of my overnight travel is for business, but this was with my family. My wife, teenage son, 3 year old daughter, and myself were on a quick overnight in Branson. This is the second time I have stayed at this Holiday Inn Express. The first time was without incident, I think. We checked in around 3pm and then left to do tourist stuff and have dinner. We returned at about 8pm and started getting everyone ready for bed. I turned on the faucet to fill a cup of water and noticed black things floating around in the cup. My first thought was that the cup was dirty before I filled it, but it wasn’t. I filled another cup and found the same thing. I showed my wife who was completely disgusted. I then went down to the front desk to find out what was going on. Upon telling this to person at the front desk, his reaction was “oh we know, this happens all the time and I will send our maintenance guy to come fix it.” I returned to my room and the maintenance guy shows up a few minutes later. He cleans the screen on the faucet and says it should be good now and leaves. I then go to fill another cup of water and I get more black particles in my water, but now it is worse. I returned to the front desk to get the maintenance guy. He returned to my room to witness this problem getting worse. While he was there I ran water from the shower faucet and saw the same problem. The solution from him and the front desk is to move me and my family to the room next door. I checked the faucet in the new room, but did not see anything wrong. At this point I do not trust the water and had to ask for bottled water from the front desk. This should not have happened at all. I have not had to use bottled water to brush my teeth since I was deployed to Iraq. The whole instance was handled very poorly by the staff. What bothers me the most is that they were aware of this problem and did not tell me about it. I have no idea what would have happened if my family or myself had drank that water, but I can assume it would have ruined our trip. To top of this whole experience, this hotel did not offer anything in compensation for the inconvenience. No discount and not even sorry. The best part was as I am checking out, there is a woman behind me that was there to complain about the water in her room. I will never stay at this Holiday Inn Express again and may not stay in any others. There are plenty of other good hotels to choose from.

Reviewed August 13, 2019
We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights and this was by far the worst holiday inn we ever stayed in. Our room AND bathroom were dirty. A small example of that is there was a piece of chicken on the floor, from check in to check out. They did not change the bed sheets. When I asked them to do this, they send the maintenance guy with used bed sheets. (See attached photos) We had two wasp nests at our room balcony. They ignore our needs regarding another blanket and towel. The breakfast was not good, the food handler did not wear gloves (see attached photos). I think the problem was not with the working staff, it was with the management team. The manager was rude, even went so far as to lie saying they did things they didn't after I contacted corporate about this hotel. In addition to, the room was very small. The bathroom also was small, the bath tub drain did not work well. There was no closet. There was no safe. The refrigerator did not fit in the cabinet which has a huge hinges. I hurt my hand twice trying to open this refrigerator. I would never ever stay in this hotel again and filed a formal complaint against the hotel. I have attached some photos
