"No free breakfast, but still had a good time"
The motel staff were very friendly and accommodating and the rooms were comfortable. The free breakfast left a lot to be desired. There were so many people staying there last weekend that the women who were fixing the food could not keep up with the demand. Guests were standing in long lines waiting for food to be brought out and when they brought food […] out it was very limited. There were 6 adults and our 10 month old grandson in our group and we couldn't wait any longer for food to be brought out so we ended up going somewhere else for breakfast both mornings we were there to buy breakfast. We were very disappointed. If they know there is going to be a lot of guests they should prepare a little better for it. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

Other than hearing every footstep from floor above the place was ok. The breakfast was passing but at the complete other end of buildings. Kinda dingyGenuine Expedia guest review
Suitable in all aspects for the price. Great pools, and decent breakfast.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice rooms, close to everything."

"Nice Motel for a good price"
Upon check in our room was ready front desk was very informative about room location pool locations breakfast location and hours. The room was very clean somewhat outdated but we weren't paying for the Hilton. Overall very satisfied we have stayed in Branson numerous times over the years from the nicest to the low end. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here […] again and have already referred it to others. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Hotel Cancelled my reservation!"
Someone at the hotel cancelled my reservations for 4 nights. The desk attendant wanted to argue with me about the reservation and I had to insist that I made a reservation and had my receipts before she would look for my paperwork. Luckily, they found us a room. The so called wifi service was absolutely terrible. I called 3 times to complain about it […] and the clerk was rude to me insisting that his wifi service worked just fine. I kept telling him that our devices would not even find their network because the signal was so weak. The room was spacious but there was a lot of wasted space and the bathroom/sink area was terribly small. The only nice thing I can say about the customer service was the housekeeping staff that offered to help me carry my luggage out when we checked out. I will not stay here again.

"Older property, good location, great staff"
The room was very plain, a bit worn, but clean and the beds were comfortable. The indoor corridors seemed a bit shabby leaving the feeling that updating is a bit overdue. Breakfast was ok, but a bit awkward for my daughter and me since all of the tables are large and seat 6-8 people, so we ate breakfast in our room. Somewhat plain and lacking much variety […] but better than simply a continental breakfast. The best feature of the hotel, by far, is the indoor pool. We didn't have much time to enjoy it, but it's a good size, modern and inviting. Overall, it would be a challenge to find a better value at Southern Oaks and the awesome helpful staff just put it over the top. It's not the Hilton, but at a fraction of the price and having the nicest possible people running the place, it's close enough for me to stay there again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel close to the strip"
Really comfortable rooms, good service, not a lot of noise. I would definitely stay here again.Genuine Expedia guest review
The hotel was nice with both inside and outside pools. Breakfast was nice and we were able to just walk across the road to a nice BBQ joint. We would definately stay again and recommend to others.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Crazy good breakfastGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Great location, just off the strip. Very friendly staff. Nice pool and facilities. Our only complaint was the beds were hard. Oh and the TV was a little smaller than most hotels where we have stayed before. But we don't watch a lot of TV on vacation anyway.Genuine Expedia guest review
Really needs updating.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Needs some small updates - curtains, air units, bathroom sinks and showers. We had a good stay and had no major complaints. Employees were all helpful and friendly.Genuine Expedia guest review
Excellent value! We will definitely stay there again.Genuine Expedia guest review
large room, small beds, dresser, table and tv. low shower head. did not enjoy being in my room. of 20 or so different rooms visited in Branson at this price range over the years this is on the lower end.Genuine Expedia guest review
Room was musty and had no lighting to speak of. You needed the curtain open to read. poor quality construction. Loud dehumidifier in the room and noisy Air conditioner.Genuine Expedia guest review
"25 $ key return ??"
this motel had keys. and if you didn't get them back there was a 25$ fine.... why not get those plastic cards with the pizza advertisements on them and not worry about the keys. Also the add said refrigerator on request. they didn't tell you that it was a 5$ charge. the phone didn't work. the continentel breakfast was crowded. I doubt that soutern oats […] will see me back.

"Nice indoor pool"
The hotel staff were wonderful. Friendly. The location was very good and easy to get in and out. The indoor pool was located behind the hotel, in a very nice private place. The pool looked nice and clean. There were clean towels. The room, however, was old and musty. The stairs were musty. The TV in our room was smaller than our suitcase. Its a nice […] place if your not planning on relaxing in your room. Although there was a lot of noise in the hallway, our room was pretty quiet at night. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
I was told by the woman who rented the hotel to me over the phone that it was a 3star. She also told me that it was on the main strip. Neither of which were true. The beds were not comfortable and we were on 2nd floor. There was no elevator so we had to climb stairs with all of our luggage. I am unhappy about the entire hotel stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great service for the price"
Upon arriving we were greated by friendly staff with a smile...even at 2:00 am! Our room was in a great location close to the office, and outdoor pool. I had to bother the staff for a pull-out bed which was brought to us right away. The breakfast was ok, but again the staff were very friendly and helpful. This is not a 5 star hotel, but comfortable, […] clean and friendly. Cheap too! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Not Much I Would Change"
11/19/14 Deb S Zimmerman, Minnesota
We stayed 3 nights at the Southern Oaks as part of a motor coach tour. Our room was clean and there were plenty of towels supplied. The staff was very friendly. We had requested a room with a refrigerator as we had some medication that needed refrigeration. There was no fridge in the room, but after phoning the front desk, it was no more than 5 minutes before we had a refrigerator. My biggest concern was that there was no elevator and the facility is not very accessible for the handicapped. You can request a first floor room, but to get to the breakfast area you need to go down a couple flights of stairs, and a few people in our tour were really struggling with that. There are A, B, C and D buildings, so the folks in A and B buildings had a bit of a walk to get to the D building for breakfast. Breakfast wasn't bad if you're not diabetic - very heavy on the simple carbs. There were sausage and powdered eggs too, but the sausage was greasy and the eggs were kind of watery. We chose other options for breakfast after the first day. Though we didn't use the pool, we did check it out and it was nice and warm - always a plus! I would recommend this hotel to a young family with no accessibility issues, but I would not personally stay there again.
"Clean, Good Hot Breakfast, Nice Folks!"
11/04/14 Brian J Tulsa, Oklahoma
We had never stayed on this side of Branson before, but will definitely stay this side from now on. Literally a two minute drive to Golden Corral Restaurant, a few minutes to a grocery store, antique mart, and the stop light to turn back toward Silver Dollar City. The Hot Breakfast was a great selling point and the grandkids loved it. The room was clean, plenty of towels, and although the Televisions are mighty small, all in all, it was a great stay. The pool is also very nice and clean. We would stay here again, which is rare for us to say about an independent motel in Branson.
"Great Stay at Southern Oaks Inn"
09/16/14 Cecil R Collierville, Tennessee, United States
We waited until we got to Branson to decide a good place to stay. We went on line and found very good rates for Southern Oaks Inn. The Staff was great, quick checkin, nice clean rooms. We could not have asked for more and will continue to go back to Branson and stay at Southern Oaks Inn. C.W.R. Collierville, Tn.
"Another good stay"
09/01/14 Norma F Gravois Mills, Missouri, United States
As usual we were not disappointed. Our room was near the indoor pool, which was our request. The front desk staff were quick with check-in as well as check-out. All employees were friendly. We arrived on Saturday for labor day weekend and they were full. Even being full everyone seemed very happy to have us. Breakfast was good nothing unusual, again the staff was nice and talked to guests about their stay. Our room was in a good location. The TV was a bit small but we weren't in there much. Can't wait for our next stay.
"Not what I expected"
08/19/14 Polly R Streator
The room did not look like the one that I had reserved. Our patio was next to the pool, which was fine, but no privacy when sitting outside. Pool was cool and had to close the doors to keep breeze from chilling us when we used the pool.
"Family Gathering/Great Location"
08/15/14 ZanC77 Branson, Missouri
Family reunion and celebration of 70th birthday. The front office was very friendly and accommodating and provided a room with tables and chairs for the birthday party. Motel room was large and clean with a small refrigerator which was nice for leftover birthday cake. Blow dryer, iron, and coffee pot in the room. We used the indoor pool and large outdoor patio. A very nice stay and gathering place for a large family.
"Nice clean motel"
08/12/14 AHZ00 Saint Louis, Missouri
Though dated, it is still a charming family owned property. Comfortable beds, decent free breakfast. A decent value for the weekend car cruise when Branson was so busy. Nice indoor pool, and decent outdoor pool.
"Southern Oaks Inn is fantastic!"
08/12/14 Gary B Dallas, Texas
This was my first visit to Southern Oaks Inn but it will not be my last!! The rooms were very spacious plus had hair dryers, coffee pots, small refrigerators and very reliable Wifi. The "hot" breakfast was really good and you had plenty to choose from!!The location is ideal as it is just a little off the strip but right across from the The Shoji Tabuchi Theater and within walking distance of shows, restaurants, and some shopping. They also have an outdoor pool and a beautiful indoor pool.The staff at Southern Oaks Inn was very friendly from the desk clerks to the housekeepers to the breakfast cooks. Had a very enjoyable stay at Southern Oaks Inn!!
"Good value and location!"
The location of this hotel is great, it's not right on the strip but within minutes of everything. The indoor pool is excellent! Every staff member we met was very nice and polite, the ladies in the breakfast area were our favorite! The breakfast is ok, no fresh fruit and during busy times it's hard to get to items because of the way it's set up. We also had an issue with our youngest daughter wetting the bed and they took care of it immediately. The hotel is outdated but the rooms were nice. Overall we were happy with our stay.
"Good for families"
07/26/14 Kara B Smithville, Arkansas, United States
We stayed 2 nights here, my 2nd time staying here. The rooms are large...lots of floor space for kids to play, we have a 2 year old. Our beds were comfy pillow tops but I know not all the rooms had been updated with these mattresses. These are small queen beds though not the almost king I have at home. Our room also came with a fridge which was very handy with children. Breakfast here is very good. Kept fresh and hot throughout the morning. 2 pools which are both very good. The indoor pool is one of the nicer ones in town, especially for the price. Location was very convenient to all routes...you could avoid most of 76 if you tried. I hope this hotel keeps up with the positive changes they are making and doesn't fall by the wayside because I enjoy staying here.
