Question Advice needed

We will be in Branson July 29 through August 1st I'm looking for a lot of bang for my buck on the strip. Price range $75-110 we don't 'have' to be on the strip but it is preferred our daughters request...
We are considering
The clarion
Hotel grand Victorian
Lodge of the ozarks

Am I overlooking a hotel I should consider? Advice,favorites...experience with the above hotels?

We are in our 40s and bringing our almost 16yr old daughter, we want to shop tanger/landing area, relax by the pool and see maybe 2 shows(help on shows please that a 16 yr old would enjoy) Dixie stampede? We have never been to a show. Have done SDC but not this trip...this trip is about comfort,relaxing and some entertainment.

Any advice you could give would be appreciated

Thanks

16 year old girl? The Haygoods. Dixie is fun and good food. My 17 y.o. DD also enjoys SIX and Buckets N Boards. Definitely The Haygoods, though.

Neither the Camden nor the Lodge of the Ozarks have an outdoor pool. The Clarion should suit your needs just fine. Best Western Center Pointe Inn is also a possibility. They did have some tornado damage, but I think they have rebuilt everything back.

Teacherkim gave some great show advice. You might also consider the Chinese Acrobats. People of all ages usually enjoy their amazing abilities. You may need to consider your daughter's tastes. Does she like country, rock, comedy, magic? There are shows for about any taste, but what suits one person may not suit someone else. The Tracks also have go-karts, video games, and laser tag if that is something she enjoys. You might also consider Moonshine Beach for a lake experience. Go early or late as the sand does get scorching hot in the summer.

Can't help with lodging advice but we've seen all the shows others have suggested and I'd think #1 choice would be The Haygoods. You daughter would love it. The other shows listed so far are all great shows also.

If you'd like to do a morning show, the Bretts are the best in town! You and your daughter would love it! 10 am at the Legends theater across from Dixie Stampede.

I would say the Clarion. Has 2 pools. One indoor and the other one out.

Have stayed there many times. It is our home away from home.

Enjoy your trip and make some good memories.

Another vote for the Clarion. Love staying there but wont be there this year, going late July called for reservations several weeks ago and the balconey portion was already booked full.

So if you are serious about The Clarion reserve as soon as possible because to really enjoy it you will want a room with the balconey.

Breakfast is advertised as continental at the hotel. In the past, they have also given free vouchers to Sadie's Sideboard Restaurant buffet adjacent to the hotel. This restaurant buffet is mediocre at best, and a lot of people didn't like having to pay for the drinks and tips, so they may not be offering this option any more.

Moon River Theater is less than a half mile from the hotel--an easy walk.

2 for 1 tickets is easy to use. You stop at the ticket outlet and pay for your tickets. (You don't have to buy even number tickets as they will give you the same price if you have 1, 3, or 5 in your party.) You probably will need cash as they didn't accept credit cards the last time I purchased from them. They will give you vouchers which you will take to the ticket booth at the theater and exchange for the actual tickets. Some shows will let you exchange your vouchers days in advance. Others limit you to 30 minutes prior to show time.
