Branson Shows Knows 10/6

Every week, our Branson experts ask our thousands of Facebook fans for questions about things they always wanted to know about Branson and our gurus select the top queries and hunt down the answers. This week, we asked for your questions about local hotels and lodging options, and we received some great questions!

Here are the answers to this week's top questions:

Q: Are there any wheelchair-accessible hotels near Branson's Dolly Parton's Stampede?

A: Yes! There are plenty of handicap accessible hotels in the area, but a few of our favorites include Baymont Inn and Suites, the Grand Oaks Hotel, and La Quinta Inn. All three hotels are within a mile of Dolly Parton's Stampede and also feature some fantastic amenities like an indoor heated pool, free Wi-Fi, and complimentary breakfasts.

Q: Which Branson hotels allow you to bring a pet?

A: It simply isn't vacation without your furry friends, and there are plenty of pet-friendly hotels in Branson to choose from! A few pet-friendly hotels include Fall Creek Inn & Suites, Angel Inn, Barrington Hotel & Suites, and Quality Inn. A few of these locations will charge an additional fee or have restrictions to the size of pets, however, so make sure you check before you bring your fluffy friend on vacation with you!

Q: What's a good hotel on Hwy 76 (the Strip) in Branson?

A: We get this question all the time, and while everyone has a different idea of what makes a hotel 'good' there are certainly no shortage of options to pick from! Branson's Highway 76, also called the Strip, is the central hub of the entertainment district, and some of the more popular and well-rated hotels there include La Quinta Inn, a pet-friendly hotel; Clarion Hotel at the Palace, which has an on-site restaurant; and Hampton Inn, which offers complimentary hot breakfasts. Of course, those are far from the only options. No matter what you're in Branson to see, there is a hotel located within a short distance!

Q: Does the Grand Oaks in Branson have hot breakfasts? What do they serve?

A: Why, yes, it does! After all, everyone loves free breakfasts, and the Grand Oaks has some absolutely delicious hot and cold breakfast options for its guests. Unlike most hotels, which offer the same food every morning, The Grand Oaks actually swaps out its meals every other day so guests have some variety in their morning meal. In addition to the daily continental breakfast offerings, the hotel serves either biscuits and sausage gravy or scrambled eggs every morning. Drinks like juice and coffee, of course, are offered as well. Breakfasts are served from 6:30 to 9:30 a.m. daily. Click here to check out the room availability and prices.

Q: Are the pools and hot tub at the Stillwaters Resort in Branson open year-round? Are the pools heated?

A: The pool at Branson's Still Water Resort is absolutely beautiful and fun for the whole family. But, unfortunately, both the pool and the hot tub are located outdoors. While the large hot tub remains open from the spring through the month of December, the pool usually closes in October. However, if you're looking for a hotel with a fun heated indoor pool, there are plenty of options including the Suites at Fall Creek, which also features a miniature golf course and a great location near the Showboat Branson Belle.

Branson has no shortage of lodging options, so it's easy to find something to fit your family's budget and needs! Have another question we didn't answer? Check back next week, and don't forget to Like our Facebook page to submit your own questions!

Showboat Branson Belle Lunch & Dinner Cruises
What a great experience!! I booked our family on the dinner boat for the 4th of july. We had the seats to the far end of the boat. The only down side to it is the overhang from above. When janis did her violin act with the ropes we couldn't see what was happening when she went to the top. The food was fine, the acts were great (i wasn't so sure when i booked) and the best part was they stopped the boat on the lake so we could leave our seats and go on deck to watch the fireworks from the boat. It looked like a sea of christmas lights with the all the boats on the lake and the fireworks put on by branson was spectacular. This event was worth every penny we spent in spite of the low view from our seating. Our son still speaks of the event. He was able to get his picture taken with the captain. All the staff were pleasant and willing to assist if and when needed. The sail was so smooth we didn't realize we were moving. A wonderful memory for our entire family. Love, love, loved it!!

Dolly Parton's Dixie Stampede Dinner & Show
I loved the show. I was never out of a drink and the waiter was so nice. My little niece loved when the fire came out. We did not get to see the horses jump over the fire, but that is completely understandable noting that the horses were bucking and weren’t comfortable. I didn't’t mind not having silverware because that’s just easier for my nieces to break up the food. We have a disabled brother (wheelchair) and the servers moved everything out of the way and treated him like the king. He loved it! The dogs were so cute and amazing. I just have one thing, bring back the lumberjacks! That was my little brothers favorite part of the show (and mine!) we loved the show and can i have the recipe for the ? They are so good. My neices argued over who got my sisters!
