"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.

We had 3 rooms one of which was a handicap king with roll in shower for our son who is in a wheelchair. We checked in around 6pm. The hotel manager checked us in and she was very nice and kind. We had an issue with one of the rooms heaters but she transferred us to another room with no problem. The problem really didn't come until much later in the evening after the nice manager left. The other lady with black hair and glasses was working. My wife is an extreme Type 2 diabetic and was about to go into a diabetic shock as her blood sugar levels were at 41. I asked the lady at the desk for a banana so my wife could bring her sugar back up and she told us and I quote "WALMART IS JUST NEXT DOOR" and we could go buy a banana. Thank God my son had some graham crackers and orange juice which helped. Had she of gone into a diabetic coma knowing we had a service dog who was barking to alert that her sugar was very low it could have been a potential lawsuit. Her excuse the next morning when confronted about this was that she had just turned away a homeless guy trying to get some free food. LAST TIME I CHECKED WE PAID FOR THREE DAMN ROOMS. WE WEREN'T HOMELESS PEOPLE!! Other than this incident everything else about our stay was fine. The beds were soft and comfy and the breakfast is pretty much like every other Holiday Inn Express breakfast. I am happy that everything turned out ok given the circumstances however I would say that the next time a hotel guest start to have a diabetic problem maybe your desk clerk should be a little more nicer. I mean that is a potential lawsuit waiting to happen! Just saying!!

Good!!! Rested with my family (my husband and my adult son (30 years old)) at the hotel from 10 to 21 October. They ordered a 3-bed room and a transfer from the train station. We were met by Bulat in his car. On the way, I got acquainted with the surroundings, sights, advised me where to go, what to see. Upon arrival at the hotel, the hostess Gul met us. the rooms are clean. The beds are soft. The rooms are cleaned regularly. The dining room has a large assortment. The prices are acceptable. Mye.Supy and meat dishes are delicious, but the porridge (rather, it’s milk soup) I didn’t like. -250) helped load things up and escorted us. Thank you all so much. It was pleasant to stay in this hotel. The location of the hotel is convenient. Everything is nearby. I think it was not the last time I had a rest here.

"Friendliest front desk"
TripAdvisor user rating 3 out of 5
Reviewed December 29, 2018
Seriously, I checked in 5 hours early! Hiltons would never allow that. After spending the past couple nights in Branson at the Hilton, I gave this hotel a try. It's tucked away behind a fast food restaurant, which was odd. Besides that, the hotel was safe and our rooms were clean. The hotel was packed with guests, so it's certainly not bad place. The lodging cost was reasonable and included continental breakfast with some hot items such as turkey sausage. The room and bathroom are smaller than what I'm used to, but clean and adequate. For a small town, I would think this is a solid hotel.

We checked into the hotel and was assigned a room. Got up to the room and there was water dripping from the ceiling. They went way above and beyond to call of duty to correct the problem, including assigning us another room. The customer service was awesome. It was very quite and the room was spotless.

"Great location. Decent rooms."
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5
Reviewed December 23, 2018
The staff here was very nice and helpful. We stayed 4 nights right before Christmas. 4th floor, west side of the hotel. It is conveniently located behind a Shoneys, a Taco Bell, and next to a Wal Mart. The breakfast was typical HIE fare plus Cinnabon rolls. For the money, it was a good stay. The rooms are smaller than other HIEs I've stayed in, and they could stand some touching up, but it was clean and safe. We'd stay here again in the future. Tip: Parking out back us on a hill. Try to get a parking space up front. They will let you use the last row in the Shoney's lot for your HIE stay.
