Allow yourself to be pampered

Pros: SERVICE, SERVICE, SERVICE! Bellhops eager to assist, front desk that's efficient, and room service / housekeeping that does a fantastic job.
Location: Branson, entertainment capitol of the Ozarks!
You might pay a couple extra bucks here, but it will be worth it. This is a lodge, not a motel and these are mostly suites, not just motel rooms - very spacious, beautifully appointed, and most have separate sleeping rooms. Beds are comfortable and you get *turn down service* with chocolates AND gigantic Keeter Cookies and fresh (from their own herd) milk. Take the time to visit the dairy yourself to watch the cows be milked (up close and personal) and then bottle-feed the calves - how cool is that for young and old alike! Do you prefer 2%? They call in advance to record your preference on milk and coffee - I'll guarantee you're not going to receive that treatment somewhere else. Well-behaved kids in tow? While you won't have a pool you will get a wrist band for complimentary ice cream in the lobby and lots of educational experiences: in addition to the dairy, there is the Ralph Foster Museum on campus and a military exhibit in the Keeter Center. Lots of walking paths, a pond with swans, a babbling water feature - even more in the Spring and Summer with gardens and the mill. A very special continental breakfast is delivered to your room or you can choose something cooked to order for a few dollars more. I could have lived off the breakfasts and cookies! But why would you when they have an outstanding restaurant just a few steps from your room? The best part: every interaction with the staff is cheerful and ready to delight you - these kids have a servant's heart.

First Class experience!

The staff at the Keeter Center are all students, and they do everything possible to make your stay enjoyable. They are friendly, courteous, efficient and knowledgeable. This was the best experience we've ever had staying in a condo, hotel or lodge. I highly recommend this and will be returning!
