"Christmas Getaway"
January 2020
The hotel and front desk staff were wonderful. The activities staff...not so wonderful. We attended several scheduled events only to find that the person in charge of the event made a decision not to have the event. We were told things like there was too many kids. I thought the reason to offer the event was to draw the kids to it. In the game room we asked for controllers for the video games the attendant half way pointed and said look over there. There was no controllers and all the board games had missing pieces. We love the Welks and have always loved taking our Christmas break trip there. This time I left a little disappointed. The breakfast buffet never disappoints!!

"Noisy"
August 2019
To start with the beds are not queen size they are an oversized full. The noise above are room every night was like a Hurd if elephants till 1 or 2 am. But on a good note it was a very nice place for kids. The pool and slide was very nice. My granddaughter loved the activities at the pool but please make sure you take plenty of money with you because everything will cost you. The prices could be a little lower for the activities but still fun for the kids. The room we stayed in was not very clean the carpet was very worn and old.

"Good for children"
June 2019
Although it would be a good place for kids, the employees tended to not be so friendly, the rooms had a moldy smell and mold could be seen in the bathrooms. I had two different rooms on two different floors and both had the same problems

"Sadly disappointed"
December 2018
Although the staff was friendly and professional, I was sadly disappointed in the accommodations. The rooms were at best, mediocre. Not what I would expect after reading the descriptions on the Welk website and paying their rates. Even more frustrating was not having any hot water for a shower! After Letting the water “run until the water gets hot”, as told to do so by a gentleman at the front desk, an hour later the water was still cold and I no longer had the time to shower before our reserved dinner show. Needless to say, we won’t be back!

"Excellent Adventure!!!"
August 2018
This was my first time planning my family vacation. Everything worked perfectly! We had no issues at all. We got there, checked in, and they put us in a room right next to my aunt who was just passing through. The rooms were a tad on the smaller side, but who really spends a lot time in their room anyway? There is so much to do at the hotel! There is a list of events everywhere to make sure you don't miss a thing. The Splashatorium is pretty awesome, even for us adults! There is a smaller pool on the backside of the hotel too, which was usually less crowded and great for family wading. The rooms were clean, however, the beds weren't the most comfortable, but we all know nothing compares to our own! The breakfast buffet is great! Definitely worth the cost. Fill up early and spend less later! I would totally recommend this resort and we will stay there again for sure! P.S. If address the concierge regarding the timeshare mumbo jumbo upfront, they won't bother you again ;)

We stayed for 3 nights and really enjoyed the set up. They have activities lined up all day so even if you don't have plans you can still have fun there. My kids as well as my husband and I loved the splashatorium. The staff was super friendly and always helpful.

"Welk resorts/Great place"

Reviewed February 07, 2020 NEW
Two couples stayed in a two bedroom kickoff right before Christmas. What a great resort. Lots of room and kept up resort. Had a little problem with tv but when we called had immediate help. Just needed some fine tuning. The balcony and fireplaces were an extra nice amenity. Didn’t use the water park but walked through and looked like fun. Not right downtown but within a few minutes of anywhere we wanted to go. Had a little delay in checking in but that was because I went to wrong front desk. Two in the lobby One for resort owners and one for regular folks. Not as clearly marked but once I found right desk quick check in. Definitely recommend

"Great place for families!"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed January 27, 2020 NEW
Splashatorium was closed the last 2 nights of our trip so we booked elsewhere, but overall this place was great! They had extra activities ((for a small fee)) at the activity center which were great for families! The Splashatorium was the main reason we came.... we planned our vacation around pool time so we were disappointed they closed it. They did, however, all us in advance to notify us of the closure which was nice. Water pressure in the rooms was not amazing at all.... it took forever to wash my hair because of the low pressure otherwise the room was great!

"Timeshare Hell"
TripAdvisor user rating 1 out of 5
Reviewed January 21, 2020
My family and I decided to take a trip to Branson for the weekend. We were visiting a local annual state fair and happened across a Branson.com booth offering what appeared to be a good deal for people interested in visiting Branson. The booth attendant presented us a $99 package that included 2 nights at the Welk Resort, $50 dining certificate, inspiration tower tickets, go-carts tickets, and miniature golf tickets. Too good to be true, of course. After realizing that I was planning on spending 2-3 times that on the hotel alone originally, I jumped at the idea of saving hundreds of dollars. At that point, I was told that to get the package, my wife and I would have to attend a "brief presentation". I hesitated, and asked why this wasn't mentioned before, but in the end, against my better judgement, we decided to go ahead and accept the offer. We arrived in Branson and had to visit the Branson.com office to get the vouchers for our hotel, dining, and entertainment. Took a little longer than anticipated, spent nearly an hour at their office when it should have taken half that. But, the vouchers all worked great - checked into our hotel, used the dining certificates, and ended up using all the entertainment vouchers as well. The hotel itself was fine, nothing special, no real problems, but the room was tiny, and the best word I can use to describe how it felt to be in the room: "damp". Nothing felt very clean and probably hasn't been remodeled in 30 years. We were unfortunately near the elevator and the walls are paper thin. We go to our timeshare presentation which was to be no more than 2 hours, and of course, they promise you there will be no pressure, "we don't care if you don't buy our timeshare, because we don't need you, it's your loss, no ours". The presentation and tour went as expected; they continually tell you there will be no pressure to buy, but once you get to the end, they brought 3-4 different people over to try to pressure us into buying. One gentleman even said "wow, I thought you were a smart guy, I thought for sure you'd realize how great of a deal this is." After a 3.5+ hour presentation, tour, and interrogation session (after saying we weren't interested in their timeshare nearly 10-12 times), we were finally released from the depths of timeshare hell to get our child from the on-site childcare facility (which, admittedly, was nice). I hope this review is found helpful by anyone considering visiting Welk Resorts in Branson, especially if you are on the fence about attending the timeshare presentation. My recommendation: stay away.

It was good overall but the water from the splash park dryed up in my throat and I couldn’t eat my dinner. I loved the breakfast. The Minnie golf was amazing. The rooms were pretty good. But the activities center was not as fun as I thought it would be.
