One question that we are frequently asked is, “What are the best hotels on The Strip?” While “best” is a subjective term, we have referred to the visitor and guest reviews to come up with these top five Branson hotels.
Best Western Center Pointe Inn. Located between the Titanic Museum Attraction and Beyond the Lens, the location of the Best Western Center Pointe Inn is, in itself, enough to put it near the top of our list. Yes, the hotel sits between these two iconic Branson attractions, but there are plenty of other attractions and restaurants within a short walk of this attractive property. Montana Mike’s Steakhouse sits in the hotel’s parking lot and Pasghetti’s Italian Restaurant Attraction sits next door. Across the Street is the Hollywood Wax Museum, Castle of Chaos, and Shoot for the Stars Mini-Golf. The Clay Cooper Theatre is just a block the other direction and so it Belgian Waffle and Pancake House. All this can be found within one block of Best Western Center Pointe Inn, a locally owned hotel, making it one of the best hotels in Branson. The award-winning hotel is always clean. Amenities include hot breakfast, free wi-fi, free parking, concierge, gift shop, indoor and outdoor saltwater pools, game room, fitness center, indoor and outdoor corridors.
