“Great time in Branson and Marriott Willow Ridge”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 August 2012

Beautiful resort & great staff as always with Marriott. Grandkids loved all the activities for them. We loved the complimentary wine & cheese night on Wednesday with a wonderful free show with Denny Geary & his wife with a surprise visit from Cat's Pajamas - a young acapella group appearing at the Moon River Theatre. Hitchin Post is the only restaurant on site by the pool & has sandwiches, burgers & salads. Resort is only 3 buildings & could not have been any nicer. Will definitely stay there again!

Room Tip: We were top floor poolside building #1 but I don't think there is a bad location in the entire r...

I am a "hotel snob" but I absolutely LOVED this place!!!! It was very up to date (unlike most hotels in Branson) and it was VERY CLEAN!! The staff and service was fantastic too!!! We loved the beautiful outdoor pool as well as all the amenities the 1 bedroom Villa offered. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this as the BEST place to stay in Branson!!!!

our family of four stayed five nights, july 29th thru august 3rd. we were in the 5th building room 5515, one bedroom villa. the room itself was very nice, no complaints. kitchen fully stocked with any utensil you might need. we bought a few groceries at the wal-mart just down the way, snacks, soda, water, breakfast and sandwich food. the pool area was very nice and the kids loved it. this week was super hot, temps in the 100's. night time swimming was the best. the resort has many activities going on all the time. kids took part in pool games, ice scream sundae bar, crafts, painting, etc. at one point my son and i got locked out onto our balcony (husband/daughter did it on accident). we were able to flag down another guest who called hotel security for us (mike) who came and let us "out." another time our room key deactivated, we were locked out of the room and again, mike, helped us out again. can't thank him enough! they only draw back that i could see was there is no restaurant on site. there was a stand that served a limited menu, sandwiches, chips, nachos...but it was only serving until 6p. would have been nice to not have to leave the property each night for dinner but many restaurants are close by. we recommend the dixie stampede, the "ride the duck" tour, the titantic museum, ripley's believe it or not museum. we did putt-putt a couple different times. we had never been to branson but would return again and definitely stay at willow ridge. all staff members were so nice and helpful. thanks for a wonderful vacation!

Room Tip: we had a view of the back parking lot which wasn't bad, i just wished we could have had a pool v...

As a loyal Marriott customer I hope to never have to write this review again. It is the first time I've been disappointed in a Marriott property, not for what it is, but for what I expected. Owning two weeks of Marriott Vacation Club property I've become accustom to the high standards and excellent accommodations provided. We have stayed regularly in Williamsburg, VA, Hilton Head, SC, and Orlando where our expectation were exceeded. I reserved two and a half units in Branson with expectation of the same quality of property that we purchased.
Willow Ridge apparently was a Horizon by Marriott property in it's first life and an attempt is being made to reinvent it into a Marriott Vacation Club property. Our units were clean but smaller than the normal Marriott Vacation Club property, a significant detail when you are bringing 9 adults and 5 children on a vacation. The overall appointments of the unit are of much lower quality than where I own. The property is smaller than it appears in the pictures with one large pool and two hot tubs. To add insult to injury I requested handicapped accessible rooms for my grandson who is in a wheelchair, upon checking in this request was not found and not able to be accommodated without separating our party.
During business and personal travel I utilize every type of Marriott property, from Fairfield Inns to Renaissance, depending on what my needs and plans are. Usually you can dependably predict what you are purchasing but this is a situation where feel deceived and taken advantage of. I purchased and annually pay for a high quality units and received a medium priced property instead.

Would have liked to have more time at the hotel. We only had a one night stay as we were driving from MI to TX and wanted to check out Branson. The hotel was very nice with numerous things to do like indoor and outdoor pools, exercise room, pool table and foosball table. We were on the first floor facing the parking lot. Room was great, very spacious with a kitchen, washer/dryer, dining area, sofa and a large tv. Seperate bedroom with very comfortable bed and also had a tv. The bathroom was clean but not that spectacular.
