"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 ;)

Tip: Purchase the Splashatorium & the breakfast buffet vouchers

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.

"Great Time"
May 2018
This is a really nice resort. The people are friendly and the resort is very nice clean and comfortable. However, we did have to pay more for the splashatorium entrance and were only able to use it the first night we checked in, it was closed for remodel the rest of the time. I was not very pleased with this. I was very upset having been charged for something we could not use when the splashatorium was the reason we chose this resort. Would have given five stars had this not happened

Tip: Make sure splasatorium is open before paying the extra for entrance

"Best in Branson for Families"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed June 18, 2019 NEW
My second visit here and it is hard to find fault with anything at the Welk, From courteous, responsive employees, cleanliness, family activities, food quality, and location it really can't be beat. Our family made good use of the Splashitorium, miniature golf, and a wonderful buffet breakfast. The Welk is about equidistant from the Branson strip and Silver Dollar City about 15 minutes to each and out of the traffic. I would advise one of the rooms at the distant ends of the halls so there is less "kids noise" going by your door but nothing was unpleasant. Room Service seemed to be overwhelmed during our visit but that can happen when every family orders at once. The rooms are well appointed with plenty of charging outlets, modern TV, best thermostat control that I have found anywhere, quick hot water, good maid service everyday, and comfortable beds. If you have kids it is worth including breakfast and the Splashatorium for the best value and fun. Some of the property is time share it seems but that only becomes a problem when booking if you don't specify the hotel. That seems to be the only confusion listed below on some of the reviews. If we come back to Branson again, we will probably use the Welk again. An almost flawless performance for this hotel.

Our family just spent two nights here as a break for a road trip. Picked this location for the pool area and my kids loved spending time here every evening. There is an outdoor splash pad, one slide, and indoor/outdoor pool. You can purchase $4 s’more kit and cook up next to the pool. Restaurant in the hotel and other activities which we did not have time to enjoy.

We loved this place due to the things they have for the kids to do. We a didn't have to worry to much with all of the heavy traffic area either. This hotel in centrally located in Branson and there are plenty of places to eat near by as well as things to do.

Reviewed June 06, 2019 NEW
We booked this resort as soon as we arrived in Branson, MO! It is off the beaten path. away from the hustle and bustle of the touristy stuff. We enjoyed a break out of the car in the refreshing indoor/outdoor pool and big 117 foot water slide! Our three kids had a blast and were tired and ready for bed after playing. We will stay here again in the future. Rooms were nice size and very clean. A great go to place for our family of 5.

"Problems Making and Finalizing A Reservation"
TripAdvisor user rating 1 out of 5
Reviewed June 06, 2019 NEW
I thought this property looked like a nice place to stay in Branson, so I made a 3 night reservation. Immediately after making my reservation, I had a question, and tried to email them about it. That led to a whole bunch of back and forth because they apparently deal mainly with time share owners, and they couldn't find my reservation, and had other problems. But, whatever. Then, a few weeks before the reservation, I get an email from the Corporate Inventory Coordinator saying they couldn't charge my card for the rest of my deposit. That is true because we lost a card and had to get a new one. Grace gives me an 800 number. I call, and they can't find my reservation. But it was 5am on the West Coast when I called, and it said I was going to the 'night desk,' so I figured they didn't know. I waited 4 hours, until 9am, and called. The message still says its going to the night desk at 9:10am pacific. This time they told me they couldn't help me and I had to call the property directly. I did that, they forwarded me right back to the 800 number. The 800 number said they couldn't help me. They said they were going to try to get a message to the person who sent me the email. I would not book this place again. They aren't setup to handle reservations efficiently (at least for non time share owners).
