There are many places to stay in Branson, Missouri – but for our trip we chose to stay at the Branson Towers Hotel. We had never been there before and had no idea what to expect, but we were pleasantly surprised with our stay there.
It is located at 236 Shepherd of the Hills Expy, Branson, MO 65616 which is not even 5 minutes from the main stretch of the downtown entertainment area that we were going to visit.
We stayed there compliments of ExploreBranson.com and had such a great time. If you are looking for some shows attend, be sure to read my Baldknobbers Jamboree Show review and Dick Clark’s American Bandstand Theater reviews too. I had not idea that Branson, MO offered so much!
One of the high points for me in the hotel was the indoor pool! I try to swim as often as I can to get some exercise and just because I really enjoy it, so this was a big plus for me.
The Branson Towers Hotel is known for their Grand Staircase and Baby Grand Piano in the lobby. When we walked in it instantly gives you a feeling of “WOW”. The staircase encompasses three stories and is wide open giving it such a grand feeling. The baby grand piano was at the bottom of the stairs and is part of their night time entertainment that they often have.
The room was very spacious with 2 queen pillow top beds, a 42 in. flat screen tv, game room and the entire hotel is non-smoking, so no need to worry that you will get a room that smells like smoke.
The room also had a desk in case you wanted to do some work as well as free wi-fi. Every room also has a refrigerator, coffee maker and a microwave which is great if you are on a budget and want to have meals in your room.
Overall I was pleased with the comfort of the beds, they were firm and comfortable and the sheets and bedding were not too light or heavy making for a great nights sleep for us both.
Branson Towers Extras
- We had an entire hot breakfast in the morning which is free with your stay! The buffet breakfast offered one heck of a selection including some favorites like Belgian waffles, yogurt, biscuits, eggs, sausage and so much more.
- They offer a 24 hour coffee station that you can take advantage of all day.
- They also have an ice cream social at night where you can hear the piano being played and enjoy some really great ice cream for a nominal fee.

Some of the more common complaints include noise from other rooms or hallways and the fact that the hotel seems “old”. These are things that are common for many hotels. This is not meant to be a luxury hotel – so if you are looking for that, then this is not the hotel for you. But if you are looking for a great affordable hotel with just the basics you need to enjoy some time in Branson, then Branson Towers is the perfect fit.
