The Branson Hotel

214 W. Main St , Branson, MO 65616 USA (Show map)


The Branson Town Company built this elegant little hotel in 1903 with an onset of progress and the coming of the first railroad through Branson. The Hotel, which overlooks the town, was a meeting place for some very important people in Branson's history. Harold Bell Wright stayed here while writing his famed novel "Shepherd of the Hills." The hotel also housed the town's first library. Our Hotel has nine differently designed rooms each with their own private en suite bathroom. We are confident you will find the room that is perfect for you. The Branson Hotel added the Backstage Cafe and Wine Bar on June 1st, 2014. The cafe and wine bar offers an extensive wine list from around the world. We have expanded our outdoor seating area offering a magical oasis for live music and entertainment.

Weekend Getaway

We just needed to getaway - saw this on Living Social and bought it. For first timers this was amazing and quiet. Would love to come back - will recommend.

Great Place for a One Night Stay

After living in the area for four years while attending college, I had never noticed this quaint bed and breakfast in downtown Branson. I found it on this website before returning for a friend's wedding and was pleased with the comfort and location. While I would not choose it for an extended stay, the Branson Hotel is an excellent alternative to literally hundreds of mediocre motels and hotels in this tourist town that would run you about the same amount. True to the name, this B&B offers more of a hotel-style continental do-it-yourself breakfast that I found to be satisfying, but depending on what you're used to, may seem less than adequate. All in all...great location and good service for a respectable price!
