Branson Talk / Re: Classic Motor Inn 2018 - Call K.D. @ 417 334 6991

Maybe these new owners are not as concerned with United States Law as we are........   I am laying down big dollars that is the case from what I have read.  Any takers?

I think you are dead on the money. 

K.D.  is still hanging in there.  for now....

Thats quite a ride.. It is really spread out and has some long runs, but yet wraps in and out like TT,   I like the way the non-riders are under/around it watching.,  They can almost see the complete ride.

Sanddune....i called KD to confirm our reservation for Sept 11-23. She said all is still OK with the SDC Fans rate. I thanked her profusely for all her efforts on making our stay  great.

Yes, I was told they would honor our rate for now...  She is doing really well at taking care of us, BUT bottom line is, she can only do so much..

I am more worried about the "service" factor after K.D. leaves.  (when she leaves).

I should be there on the 22, maybe see you before your guys head home..

Water wheel area is one of my favorites, I could watch water flow, and work for hours.
After looking at these pictures I am tempted to go throw a bunch of seeds off that bridge.  The green looks beautiful.

Oh!  Thats a great idea...  An assortment of wild flowers maybe?

Nice of you to do all this sanddunerider. We will be staying at Classic the 14th & 15th of this month. We'll keep our eyes open on KD.

Thanks. I will be back the 22nd, IF she is still there..

Tell her I said Hi, 
and if you have the chance, slip her a hamburger ;)

I am hoping KD gets closed on her new home this friday. Then she will have more options... :D

*******Ok!  lets get this Temp. housing thing started..... 

I did call and She (michelle), can start doing reservations right away, If we want/need to.
   
Keep in mind, With this New Location whether it is Temp or turns out to be permanent, there will a learning curve to deal with.

I deal with Michelle monthly, she is one of the owners/managers of All Access Branson where I buy my show tickets.  417-332-2121

There company is tied in directly with Hall of Fame Motel on 76, they of course are associated with motels all over town.  I have talked to her extensivley, she is aware of our (and K.D's) situation..

Inititially, our rate at Hall of Fame will be 45.00 per night. This is an all inclusive price, includes taxes, and is only a few cents more than Classic. 

You will need to call Michelle at 417-332-2121 to make reservations.. 

Very important to call ahead,
 
IF by chance the Hall of Fame is sold out (they cater to alot of busses and groups), Michelle will find us another room at a sister Motel, and that rate will be 50.00 per night.
Hall Of Fame will start serving breakfast on Sat, Sept 22. through out the duration of the winter months.

I still have a couple of other proposals going on, but this will get us started on a new path. Be patient, Call Michelle, 417-332-2121, Identify your self from this group. She is a busy lady, and will need to be reminded initially.

Lets see.... Yes, they have limited Pet Rooms, Yes nice Breakfast starting on the 22nd, NO POOL (but too cold for that now anyway), plenty of parking, ground floor rooms, nice big rooms, WIFI,  And of course they sell show tickets too, so that might help you save some money too..!!

I will update as thing progress (or regress) at Classic..

Michelle @ All Access Branson- 417-332-2121

Question?comments? post or PM me..

OK, That just sux!! 

She is so overwhelmed. Last week 125 hours for her!!  I can't even imagine... 6:30 am to 11pm or so.!! >:( >:(.

I will make a call tomorrow and see if we can get the TEMP motel deal rolling before the 20th..   That way if we try to stay at Classic and there is a problem, we have a back-up plan..

I will post tomorrow as soon I get a go ahead..

Bear with me people, I will get this ironed out..!!

Report?,   Yes.  It;s not good..

I was there 3 days, never saw the owners, their vehicle was gone all day, but showed up in the evening..
K.D. Has been at work everyday open to close since the new owners took over, 4 weeks ago this Wed.
NO days off, NO time off, NO lunch breaks. The new guys are using her up! I am not sure how long she will last!!  This whole situation really frustrates me. !!!  we brought her in 3 meals this weekend, just so I knkkew she was eating. Obviously she was most appreciative for fresh food.. ;D   I do expect things there to change VERY soon :o 

I have made temporary arrangememts which we can take advantage of as of SEPT 20,. If we have to us these guys for the winter, it will work fine.. they are open all winter. and we have worked out a discounted rate..  Details later..

I also have 2 different avenues going for a full time location, I will know more on that in the next couple of weeks..

I also talked to K.D., If she decides to relocate to another Motel, AND if they are willing to work with us, I told her we would consider going with her. That would give her a little more pull on her resume'. :)

For the time being, we will continue to support K.D. 
If you do stay there, stop in and tell her hi, give her a friendly smile.  She is literally on her own at the motel right now...
If your staying somewhere else in town, stop in and say hi.. bring her a small pizza, hamburger and fries, whatever.  Guarantee the smile will make wirth your effort..

any other questions? Comments?  Post them or PM me....  Dan

Sat - only 13,000

Sunday - 16,000

Monday as of 3:00 - 9500

Everything you think you know is about to change.

But when will we be advised of the changes to come?
