Hotels are far from the only place to spend the night in Branson. Many visitors arrive in RVs, others camp and some rent a houseboat or condo. Still, those who want a hotel room have a lot of choices: There are more than 200 lodging facilities in Branson with a total of 18,800 rooms, including everything from small mom-and-pop-run inns to the upscale Chateau on the Lake Resort with its lavish meeting facilities. Prices are highest in the summer, and places that stay open year-round drastically reduce their rates January-March.
Most hotels are located on or near the Strip. These hotels typically fill up first in the busy summer months and in November and early December. It's a good idea to make reservations a week or two in advance of your visit. Properties located farther from the city center fill up less often, but it's still a good idea to make advance reservations during peak times. A number of resorts are located near Table Rock Lake. They sometimes require a two-night minimum stay on weekends, and reservations must be made well in advance if you're visiting June-August.
