Ohhhhh Branson! You are so good to me! The Grand Plaza was the second stop here in Branson Missouri and I must say I was impressed. The Official Branson Tourism Center really hooked mom and I up with this hotel along with our tickets. The price for 5 nights in this hotel along with 3 class A shows each, which are considered VIP premium, was 376.00 PP. YES it was that cheap thanks to the wonderful Branson Tourism Center.
The very first thing I noticed was the cleanness of this hotel. Walking into the hotel itself, my mother instantly said to me, “This hotel smells clean.” Actually she said that just about each time we walked out and came back in LOL. The room itself was clean, with carpeting that looked new and freshly vacuumed along with updated beds. The bathrooms were upgraded as well to include the full granite counter tops and a larger tub.
The main entrance was appropriate for a hotel of its size. The seating area is adequate and comfy but yet is professional and sleek. The staff is friendly and very vocal in greeting you whether inside or outside the hotel. The maid service is very adequate and the housekeeping manager makes it a point to come around and actually ask if you are satisfied with your housekeeping for the day.
The breakfast bar was good. Not great but good. The hotel offered a full selection of just about everything you could want including, two different scrambled egg dishes, ham and link sausages, Belgian waffles, fruits of all kinds, yogurt’s with all the trimmings, cereals and milk, juices, and donuts along with toast and english muffins with all the trimmings. The hot breakfast was free and part of the package.
The view was amazing whether your room was facing towards the main strip on HWY 76 or on the other side to the foothills of the Ozark’s. Our room was facing the Ozark’s. and the view was awesome.
The few negatives are that there are no vents in the bathrooms and because there is no way to open a window the humidity just sits in the room. All of the rooms are non-smoking. Now while some would say this is not an issue, it is if you’re a smoker. There are also no balcony rooms which would have been nice as the weather was very pleasant for most of the trip.
This is a great hotel and well worth the price for any amount of nights. If you find yourself in Branson Missouri, you would baud well to check out this hotel as a potential place to stay. You wont regret it especially if your on a budget.
