Fun Fun Fun at the Grand Country Inn
We stay at Grand Country Inn at least once or twice a year. We prefer to stay in building 2 which is a reasonable (but uphill) walk to the water park. Staying in building 1 is better but about $10.00+ more per night. If you are staying only 1-2 nights always ask for Building 1 but we usually stay for 3-4 nights and the $40.00 plus makes it worth a walk to us.
Between the water park and building 2 is an indoor pool and hot tub that is open after the water park closes. Many times we close the water park down and then hit this pool and hot tub before going back to our room.
Be sure to bring bath robes and flip flops or you will be cold for the walk to any of the buildings from the water park. Also bring something plastic to put the robes in so that they don't get wet while you are at the park.
The water park is well supervised. You can even purchase food and drink there.
We have a 7 and 16 year old and they both enjoy the park. Our older child spends a good deal of time in the basketball pool. Our youngest loves it all. I love the lazy river and my husband the adult only hot tub (when the adult only aspect is inforced by staff).
After spending all your money around Branson it is nice to know you can go back to the hotel and the kids can entertain themself for the evening without having to spend another $50-$100. And if the weather turns bad the kids have something to do for the day and evening.
The rooms are clean but average. We do wish that the chairs (which are adequate) were nicer...perhaps a recliner in each room. When you are in Branson for 3-5 days us adults need a place to relax that is off the bed and more than a straight chair. (hint, hint)
Restraunt is fine. Pizza Place good. Ice cream parlor great. Gift shops nice. Complimentary Coffee or Ice Tea at all food locations is nice touch. Indoor mini golf great for rainy days. People are friendly.
Our youngest child will tell anyone who will listen that Branson is his favorite city, that he wants to live there..... at the Grand Country Inn.
We think is a great deal for the money. This is the only hotel we make a point of revisiting every year and referring people too.
We just booked our reservations for July 2005. FUN FUN FUN AT GRAND COUNTRY INN!
